Born today, you are an intelligent, strong-willed, often rather opinionated individual. You have a great deal of foresight and understanding of both people and events, which will give you a tremendous advantage in your professional life. As strong as you may be in your work, however, you may not ever feel quite as balanced and capable when it comes to your personal affairs. Perhaps this is because you are mainly driven to excel in ways that count in the professional arena; perhaps it is because you can, at times, take friends and loved ones for granted -- but then, who doesn't? The likelihood is that a combination of both results in your inability to be personally content.
You know how to take others by surprise, and how to use humor to good effect. You are at your best, however, when you can stand among a receptive audience and simply speak the truth, offering up that which is recognized as important and lasting. You want, more than anything, to be taken seriously.
Also born on this date are: Benedict Cumberbatch, actor; Anthony Edwards, actor; Campbell Scott, actor; Edgar Degas, artist; Samuel Colt, inventor; Lizzie Borden, alleged murderer; Vikki Carr, singer; George McGovern, politician; Ilie Nastase, tennis player; Lisa Lampanelli, comedian; Jared Padalecki, actor.
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.
MONDAY, JULY 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Someone waiting for you to make a firm decision is going to have to wait a little longer, as the info you require has yet to be received.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are likely to find yourself in a tough situation if you insist on doing something that doesn't come naturally to you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are closing in on an important personal goal. A loved one is willing to make a concession that can make all the difference.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can certainly accentuate the positive, but eliminating the negative is something you'll need help with.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone who doesn't know you well is likely to make one or two demands of your time -- and you'll have no choice but to oblige.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're on the way to getting it all done, but there may be a few obstacles in your way that only you can surmount.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You should be able to improve your lot merely by doing what the situation demands. You can move up very quickly!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're likely to come to terms with something you haven't been able to shrug off in the past. It's time to move on -- alone, perhaps.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to alter the rhythm again and again throughout the day in order to keep things fashionable -- and interesting to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're not about to free yourself from a situation that was originally of your own making, but you can improve it considerably.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll get a kick out of watching someone try to figure things out. You have the answers, but you're not ready to share them yet.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have reason to seek out a rival and explore the possibility of working together on something that can benefit you both.
