Born today, you are often a bit too wrapped up in what others think -- about you, about what goes on in the world and about the world at large. Whether an issue is grand and significant or minute and forgettable, you always want to know what others are saying about it before you formulate your own opinions; this can often prove to be a double-edged sword. On one hand, you are able to fit in nicely at all times because you can mold your views -- and perhaps even your character -- to suit the situation and the crowd you're with. On the other hand, you risk losing touch with your core, with your true self and with the currents that control your own individual thoughts and emotions.
You aren't likely to find a lasting love until relatively late in life, though this certainly doesn't mean that you're destined to be alone through your early years. On the contrary, you're likely to enjoy a great many trysts and affairs, and they are likely to be quite important to you at the time. You take love -- and lust -- quite seriously indeed.
Also born on this date are: Annette Funicello, actress; Sarah Bernhardt, actress; Catherine Deneuve, actress; Jeff Goldblum, actor; Tony Roberts, actor; Timothy Leary, psychologist; Brian Boitano, Olympic figure skater; Karl Jansky, physicist.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Domestic affairs take on a strange new tone. This is nothing to be worried about -- yet. See if new opportunities open up.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll be intrigued by an offer that comes your way through unofficial channels. Explore all possible outcomes.
