Born today, you are able to bide your time and wait for an opportunity to ripen before taking full advantage of it and enjoying all that it makes available to you. You understand, too, that simply waiting for the time to be right is not enough, but that you must use that time to your advantage, planning your strategies, honing your skills and readying yourself for that one key moment when you must act decisively in order to make your dreams come true. You are keenly self-aware -- far more so than most individuals -- and this will prove an advantage to you in both your professional affairs and your personal life.
When it comes to love, you can be something of a mystery. Others may not be all that covetous of their privacy and will let the world in on what is happening to them romantically, but you are far more likely to keep that part of your life a secret. This can be tricky, however, and it can occasionally backfire on you.
Also born on this date are: Elizabeth Gillies, actress; Sandra Bullock, actress; Mick Jagger, singer; Kate Beckinsale, actress; Kevin Spacey, actor; Helen Mirren, actress; Vivian Vance, actress; Stanley Kubrick, director; Dorothy Hamill, Olympic figure skater; Gracie Allen, actress and comedian; George Bernard Shaw, playwright; Aldous Huxley, author; Jason Robards Jr., actor; Carl Jung, scientist and psychologist; Olivia Williams, actress.

SUNDAY, JULY 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Just because you claim to be speaking the truth, that doesn't make it so. You'll be expected to back up any unusual assertions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Nothing you do today is likely to threaten your reputation. Personal issues come to the fore and require immediate attention.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're in need of more in the way of guidance and advice than you have been in the recent past. A subtle shift leaves you off balance.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may benefit from new surroundings. If you find yourself in a place you do not know well, take some time to go exploring.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You know what is in store for you about as well as you know what is in store for the person next to you -- and that isn't much!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The difference between "seems" and "is" may be quite remarkable. You'll want to get the whole story from someone who was there.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're ready to give yourself over to an idea whose time has come. Now you will find that certain something to motivate you fully.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have mistaken another's intentions so thoroughly that when they are revealed, you will be thoroughly surprised.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may hit upon a new way to get places. Whether literal or figurative, this creative approach is highly beneficial.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll be counting your blessings before the day is out, even though you may consider several events to be negative developments.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll be reunited with someone who brings out the best in you, professionally and personally. It's time to make new plans, perhaps.
