Born today, you are one of the most independent individuals born under your sign. You can always be counted on to think your own thoughts, embrace your own beliefs and speak your mind whenever you are given the opportunity -- or whenever you make an opportunity for yourself to do so! You are not the bashful type; you feel comfortable in the company of all kinds of people. This sets you apart from many other Cancer natives who can sometimes be quite shy, indeed. Free expression is sacred to you, and you will not be dampened in any way.
You have something of a temper, and you can lash out quite suddenly when you are enraged in some way. This can prove problematic for you at times, for you are likely to engage yourself in the kinds of endeavors that require a good deal of circumspection on the part of everyone involved -- but it's a danger you know how to address.
Also born on this date are: Lil' Kim, rapper; Andre Johnson, football player; Yul Brynner, actor; John Quincy Adams, U.S. president; Richie Sambora, guitarist; John Henson, comedian; Giorgio Armani, designer; Sela Ward, actress; E.B. White, author; Lisa Rinna, actress; Mark Lester, actor; Suzanne Vega, singer; Leon Spinks, boxer; Bruce McGill, actor; Tab Hunter, actor.

SATURDAY, JULY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Being creative doesn't mean being flighty or irresponsible. On the contrary, you can combine creativity and professionalism expertly.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your desire is simple: to leave things in a better state than the way they were when you first encountered them. It can be done!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A review of your most recent work will reveal something that you had only suspected. Now you can use it to your advantage.
