Born today, you may never be very well known even by those who claim to know you best, having traits more common to those born under all manner of different signs. This is not to say that you are not a Cancer native; on the contrary, you are very much so: You love your home and your family, you are a very private individual and you are likely to battle with your own vaunting ambitions throughout your entire life. What is a defining trait, however, is your inability to control your inner feelings; you are likely to be possessed by your emotions at some key moments in your life. You can be both secretive and an exhibitionist.
It may be a dramatic turn of events -- one in which you may or may not be centrally involved -- that really determines the trajectory of your life. You must always pay close attention to what is going on around you, for what you learn by doing so will enable you to escape your own private sufferings.
Also born on this date are: Benedict Cumberbatch, actor; Anthony Edwards, actor; Campbell Scott, actor; Edgar Degas, artist; Samuel Colt, inventor; Lizzie Borden, alleged murderer; Vikki Carr, singer; George McGovern, politician; Ilie Nastase, tennis player; Lisa Lampanelli, comedian.

SUNDAY, JULY 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You must be willing to listen to what is said to you, especially if the situation is critical. You can learn much and adjust accordingly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have reason to think that someone close to you is the cause of much that is affecting you adversely. Investigate further.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A neighbor seeks your help with a task that is far more difficult -- or at least more complex -- than you think it should be.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your involvement in someone else's affairs enables him or her to shine. You have more than advice to offer.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be trying to repeat a past glory, but the truth is that much of what you do will be brand new this time. Don't get yourself locked in.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're going to require a few clarifications before you commit to a project that could very well bring you much recognition.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A few carefully chosen words will have a galvanizing effect on those around you. Inspiration is what is needed at this time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A portion of what you earn will have to go to routine expenses, of course, but some can be applied to something extraordinary.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may become frustrated by the fact that nothing is written in black and white. You're good at interpreting, however.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You don't want to disappoint someone who has been waiting some time for a reunion that has been arranged for today. Be there!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your native intelligence serves you well throughout much of the day, but once or twice you may actually be too smart for your own good!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you have that others don't is a certain perspective that keeps you from seeing things in a way that could otherwise prove hazardous.
