Born today, you are very much the kind of person who sticks with something once you have begun it, and you are confident that if you keep your eyes and ears open, maneuver swiftly and fluidly when required, and adapt to changing circumstances, that you will come out on top in the end. Of course, that's a tall order, and not everyone is capable of doing it all with ease, grace and effectiveness -- but you are not everyone, and you have a way of accomplishing what others can only dream of or attempt. You can be rather aggressive, but you are also quite affectionate and sensitive. What is most important, of course, is that you are yourself at all times.
You have big ideas and will not willingly give up on something that you think you can turn into something viable and valuable. There are times when you understand the need for thought and reflection, and you are always willing to give yourself the time you need for these invaluable practices.
Also born on this date are: Shania Twain, singer; LeAnn Rimes, singer; Armie Hammer, actor; Jason Priestley, actor; Daniel Stern, actor; David Soul, actor; Luis Guzman, actor; Scott Hamilton, Olympic figure skater; Ben Gazzara, actor; Lou Piniella, baseball manager; Johann von Goethe, author and philosopher; Charles Boyer, actor.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be going through more than one phase at once. You must let yourself be led through them as best you can. Try not to be contrary!
