Born today, you swing between two Cancerian extremes. One is the desire to be left alone to pursue your own successes and pleasures out of the limelight, free from the scrutiny that befalls so many others. The other is a craving for the kind of attention and notoriety that comes with putting yourself in the public eye and pursuing goals that are shared by many in the world around you. How you reconcile this conflict within yourself and your daily affairs will be the trial of your life. The solutions you come up with for yourself will make the difference between contentment and dissatisfaction.
You are likely to be the inheritor of much that is good and noble. Although you will always have a keen interest in this kind of history and tradition, you are also dead set upon charting your own course and doing things that bring you your own unique pleasure and contentment.
Also born on this date are: Malia Obama, daughter of the president; Eva Marie Saint, actress; Calvin Coolidge, U.S. president; Gina Lollobrigida, actress; Gloria Stuart, actress; Bill Withers, singer-songwriter; Pauline Phillips, advice columnist; Eppie Lederer, advice columnist; Geraldo Rivera, television personality; Andrew Zimmern, celebrity chef; Nathaniel Hawthorne, writer; Neil Simon, playwright.

SATURDAY, JULY 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to change your mind about something you had thought was a firm and uncontestable principle. Other changes are in store.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may want to put some things in storage -- literally or figuratively -- while other things get your full and active attention.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Hints and suggestions abound, and it won't be long before you decide to try what someone else is offering. Things heat up considerably.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have an unusually busy day ahead of you. What rest you have gotten may not seem to be enough -- but that surely won't stop you!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll enjoy a special view of the future and of the past. What you see tells you that where you currently stand is the best possible position.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone who is closer to you now than at any time in the past may tempt you in a way you have not been tempted before. A decision looms.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're eager to get back on track with a friend or partner who has been uncommunicative for reasons you don't fully understand.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What happens in the background may affect you more than anything in which you are directly involved.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're introduced to something new that brings you great pleasure. This is something you've tried to avoid in the past.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Once you get started, it will be very difficult for anyone -- even those you trust the most -- to stop you. Momentum is everything.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to do some quick repair work on something that you cannot go without for very long. The success of a project depends on it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're interested in more than just looking good. Presentation counts for much, but substance takes precedence over style.
