Born today, you are a forward-thinking individual with a great love of life and an affinity for any endeavor that is modern, futuristic and progressive in all aspects. This is not to say, of course, that you are ignorant of the past. On the contrary, you are keenly aware of how you are linked to those who have done so much before you, but you never rest upon those borrowed laurels. You insist on taking firm steps that move you, and those with you, into a tomorrow of your own imagining. There may be some who label you irresponsible, and even some who look upon you as a radical of sorts, but you will always have the support you need to further your cause successfully.
You do not always reveal all aspects of yourself to those around you; indeed, there is much about your private life that you jealously protect, believing whole-heartedly that some things are simply no one else's business. You are usually quite soft-spoken, but you can erupt with great passion upon occasion.
Also born on this date are: Jane Lynch, actress; Gerald Ford, U.S. president; Woody Guthrie, singer; Dale Robertson, actor; Polly Bergen, actress; William Hanna, animator; Gustav Klimt, artist; Ingmar Bergman, director; Harry Dean Stanton, actor; Rosey Grier, football player and actor; Jackie Earle Haley, actor; Joel Silver, producer; John Chancellor, journalist.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The usual give and take is unlikely to be easy; you must be willing to make an unusual sacrifice in order to make progress.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's time for you to assert your independence once again. Someone who has been trying to control you is in for quite a surprise!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've been putting off the inevitable for long enough. You'll soon recognize a golden opportunity -- and make the most of it!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have a chance to redeem yourself after a recent mistake set you back quite a bit. A secret admirer may come to the rescue.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're expecting matters to get complicated, but in fact, someone has control of things in a way you could never anticipate. Go with it!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's time for you to step out of the shadows and claim the credit that should be yours by rights.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you see is what you get -- at least during the first part of the day. A rival is trying to catch up to you, and things may heat up.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're putting too much emphasis on issues that are not central to your experience. Get to the heart of the matter.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're giving someone else every reason to continue along his or her current path -- and a rendezvous isn't far off.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You've heard the word "no" from the same stubborn source quite enough. You must work harder to change his or her mind.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're nearing a turning point, but you may not understand what is at stake until a friend points out the obvious.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You've been giving someone else everything he or she wants for long enough. It's time to ask for a little of the same in return.
