Born today, you are destined to enjoy remarkable longevity, though not always the kind of recognition or notoriety that is so precious to you. You are the kind, however, to do your best work whether in the wings or at center stage. The fact that you may be a background player for quite a while makes no difference -- you are compelled to learn, evolve, hone your skills and be the best that you can possibly be, regardless. The truth is, of course, that you suspect you are destined for great things -- eventually -- and that you must use all the time available to you, taking advantage of every opportunity, in order to prepare yourself fully for what you believe is coming.
You are not always the most sociable of individuals. Rather, you do not always play by the same rules as others, and you therefore maintain a fairly distant relationship with those around you. But it is this aloof quality that can actually help you excel in your professional endeavors.
Also born on this date are: Harrison Ford, actor; Sir Patrick Stewart, actor; Yadier Molina, baseball player; Cheech Marin, actor and comedian; Nathan Bedford Forrest, Confederate military leader; Colton Haynes, actor and model; Bob Crane, actor; Robert Forster, actor; Ken Jeong, actor; Cameron Crowe, filmmaker; Paul Prudhomme, celebrity chef.

TUESDAY, JULY 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You know exactly who is where, and what each position means in the grand scheme of things. What your own role is, however, may be a mystery.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone is trying to maneuver you into a position of vulnerability, but you'll have none of it. Stand your ground!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll bring something new and exciting to a gathering that promised to be merely routine at first. Things may begin to move very quickly.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll recognize more options in front of you than you had expected. Focus on those things that you know to be true.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You and a friend are involved in something that will mean more as time passes. For now, however, you can enjoy it for the pleasure it brings.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're almost certain that something big will happen, but you're not at all sure why. Let things develop organically; don't force anything.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're going to have to tend to some pressing matters, yet routine affairs have their place as well. Balance is everything.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're not likely to see things as clearly as someone else. You'll do well to wonder why -- and ask that someone for clarification.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Progress can be made in an unusual way. Don't expect things to happen merely because you want them to, however.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your thoughts as the day begins may prove to be somewhat prophetic, but there's only so much you can do to change the outcome.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone with whom you work closely is waiting for you to supply an important element of a fast-developing project. Try to deliver.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're traveling a road that has been traveled before, but you're bringing something new to the journey this time.
