Born today, you tend to be one of the most private individuals born under your sign, and at times your behavior may even be characterized as "secretive." In any event, you do what you can to protect those aspects of your life that you feel are, quite simply, nobody else's business. You are likely to have one or two close friends who, in the role of confidantes, will be privy to the kinds of things you do not share with the world at large, and that relationship is likely to be one that is life-long.
It is an interesting paradox that though you value privacy, you also acquit yourself quite well in the spotlight. There are times when you may actually pursue, and even crave, the attention of others -- though there will always be those aspects of your life that are off-limits.

FRIDAY, JULY 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're ready to give your "final answer," but the question, when you hear it clearly, may require you to rethink your position.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be having a rough go of it, but not for lack of trying. Indeed, unforeseen circumstances are playing a key role.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be influenced more than expected by someone who has known you only for a very short time. This tells you something useful.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's time to strike a compromise with someone with whom you've been at odds for quite some time. Disagreement gets you little right now.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be ready to do something you have planned on doing for some time, despite someone else's opposition.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are facing some serious challenges to your authority. Focus on saying and doing things that send a clear message.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll reach a preliminary goal of sorts, and you're eager to continue down your current path to see if you can go all the way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Privacy may be a key issue throughout the day. What is it that you are trying to keep under wraps? Perhaps now is not the time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be disappointed by your own performance during the first part of the day. Things get better as the day progresses.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're going to have to do something private in a public forum of sorts. Once it's done, you can put it behind you for now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be putting the blame for a recent error on the wrong parties. The truth is, you know just why it happened -- and how to fix it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to change your plans slightly -- in progress -- to satisfy someone who is not cooperating as you had hoped.
