Born today, you seem to maintain a positive, bright, humorous attitude toward life -- even, according to some, one that is far too casual or cavalier. While you seldom appear to take things as seriously as you might, this often disguises the fact that you are, deep down, quite sensitive and quick to respond emotionally to the world around you. You try very hard to protect yourself from the kinds of injury that can leave long-lasting emotional scars -- and one way of doing this is to laugh at the world and what happens in it, despite the fact that you feel things very deeply. It is not so much that you can control your emotions, but rather that you are able to keep them from controlling you.
There may be times in your life when you find yourself embroiled in situations that you cannot fully understand. Indeed, sometimes you will choose to follow a path that leads you into personal danger; this feeds a certain adventurous spirit that dwells deep within you.
Also born on this date are: Forest Whitaker, actor; Linda Ronstadt, singer; Diane Kruger, actress; Rembrandt, painter; Jesse Ventura, wrestler and politician; Alex Karras, football player and actor; Brigitte Nielsen, actress; Clement Moore, author and poet; Jan-Michael Vincent, actor; Kim Alexis, model.

THURSDAY, JULY 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The information you seek is very likely available at your fingertips, but that doesn't mean that you'll find it immediately!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can discover something important about yourself that others seem to know already. A meeting of the minds is expected by day's end.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone is keeping something from you, and it will take more than friendly persuasion to get him or her to reveal it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're going to have to repeat yourself once, twice, perhaps even three times before you have made yourself crystal clear.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your admiration for someone will come across in your words and actions. He or she will express something akin to admiration in return.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can get much out of laughing at even the most serious of situations. Someone gets the point for the very first time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You mustn't reveal how you are feeling until the moment is just right. Anything said prematurely may backfire on you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You know just where you are going, but you may not have chosen the most direct path. Someone you know well sets you straight.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can explore many exciting places, and as a result, a loved one will likely want to start something new with you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You know how to do the right thing, but circumstances may be complicated by the presence of something or someone wholly unexpected.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be trying to do too many things at once, which means that you are perhaps unable to do any of them to the best of your ability.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Bargains abound, but what you most want may not be available at a discounted price. You'll have to wait a little while longer.
