Born today, you must strive to be more forgiving of others, for without a little more tolerance and understanding -- the roots of forgiveness, after all -- you are not likely to enjoy many of life's encounters. You may be quite put off by those who are dramatically different from you, but this can lead to trouble, for indeed almost everyone you meet is dramatically different! What seems a strange paradox, however, is that you often crave the society of others, and social situations provide you with a great deal of enjoyment! But then, soon, that old critical, intolerant you is likely to resurface.
It is no surprise to anyone that you prefer doing things your own way. This is likely to bring you into conflict with many of your superiors throughout your lifetime. You cannot stand taking orders, and you often interpret the simplest of instructions as an ultimatum.
Also born on this date are: Amy Irving, actress; Ryan Phillippe, actor; Chris Columbus, director; Arnold Palmer, golfer; Charles Kuralt, news anchor; Guy Ritchie, filmmaker; Jose Feliciano, singer.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're in no mood to dedicate yourself to an endeavor that doesn't, in some way, give back to you. It may be right around the corner.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Touch base with those whose opinions matter to you, and you'll receive feedback that you will find almost immediately useful.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can work closely with someone who provides you with more than mere assistance and guidance; this can prove a most enjoyable partnership.
