Born today, you are a bright and lively individual, able to acquit yourself well in virtually every possible situation, both social and professional, though you have some key talents that are likely to point you in a very particular direction as you begin to plan your career. As you progress through life, you are certain to learn a great deal from experience. While you may become well-educated in a formal setting, experience itself -- and interaction with others -- will be the most formative education you can possibly have.
You know how to inspire others, and putting you in a position of authority is perhaps the smartest thing any boss can do with you; you are sure to bring success to any organization for which you work. Ultimately, however, you are destined to be your own boss and soar to ever greater success.
Also born on this date are: Bill Cosby, comedian and actor; Topher Grace, actor; Richard Simmons, fitness guru; Cheryl Ladd, actress; Erik Per Sullivan, actor; Kristi Yamaguchi, figure skater; Christine McVie, musician and singer; Milton Berle, actor and comedian; Henry David Thoreau, author; Oscar Hammerstein II, songwriter; Andrew Wyeth, painter; Van Cliburn, musician; Louis B.

SUNDAY, JULY 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll have to make small adjustments all day long in order to keep pace with someone who seems able to outmaneuver you at every turn.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The day may pass much more quickly than expected; it's not the clock, but your own perceptions that are running faster than usual.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's a good day to practice those small courtesies that you learned when you were young, including that old favorite "share and share alike"!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A friend or loved one expresses disappointment at something you did or did not do. You can make up for this oversight.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're well on your way to accomplishing something memorable, but you're going to have to overcome at least one remaining obstacle.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your search for something dear to someone else isn't likely to amount to much, but soon you'll realize where it's best to look.
