Born today, you are destined to make quite a name for yourself, yet you will not always be required to step front and center in order to garner attention, praise and admiration. Those things will simply come your way if you follow your own star and do what you are destined to do as a result of your combined desires, character and talent. Indeed, you can do a great deal behind the scenes that others are unable to do. In this way, you will make a unique contribution to the world -- or at least your own corner of it -- and secure your place in the history books. It won't take much, in fact, and once you get started, you're sure to enjoy a long and fruitful career that opens a great many doors to you.
There is much about you that is unique, and though you can surely claim to be every inch a Cancer native, you are in many ways inimitable. This can be a source of pride for you and, at times, a source of hardship as you occasionally feel that you do not fit in.
Also born on this date are: Ringo Starr, musician; Michelle Kwan, figure skater; Kirsten Vangsness, actress; Satchel Paige, baseball player; Jorja Fox, actress; Doc Severinsen, musician; David McCullough, author; George Cukor, director; Billy Campbell, actor; Robert Heinlein, author.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
TUESDAY, JULY 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The way the day progresses will warrant some careful scrutiny of your own plans -- and the plans of a rival. Things may have to change.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have been so busy doing things for others lately that you haven't done what is necessary for yourself. Today, you can come first.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll receive several signs, and while some may seem contradictory, all are worth serious consideration.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Seeking a way out of a difficult situation may take you much of the day, but once a solution is found, you should be out of the woods.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be nervous to share recent work with someone whose opinion you truly value, but he or she is likely to be delighted with all of it!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may feel as if you are responsible for the lion's share of a difficult project, and you are. Things are in the best possible hands.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're eager to see progress made on many fronts. Make no mistake, however: you're going to need help throughout the day.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It's time for you to lay down the law, especially where younger team members are concerned. They may not appreciate current difficulties.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're more willing today than you were yesterday to give a certain someone free rein; the difference between then and now is subtle.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You mustn't try to say too much at any one time. You may have several important messages to impart, but do so one at a time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll want to give credit to someone who has been quite inspiring to you of late. He or she has been, in many ways, your muse.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The clock is ticking, and you'll want to pay close attention to its progress as you attempt something that others have not been able to do.
