Born today, you are, quite simply, something of an enigma -- and always will be. Like many Cancer natives, you tend to be a loner, despite your ability to work and play well with others for extended periods of time. Your social abilities notwithstanding, you are always compelled to withdraw back into your shell eventually, leaving others to wonder what is really going on, and why you would choose to isolate yourself rather than live among friends and loved ones in a world that may well be considered your oyster. The truth is that success itself is not something that can pull you away from your center; you will be who you are, no matter what your accomplishments or how much you may be rewarded for them.
You harbor many hidden desires beneath the surface, guarding them jealously lest someone else discover them and exploit them in some way. This, of course, is the result of a certain level of insecurity; it may be that you are afraid to explore where those desires will lead you.
Also born on this date are: Robin Williams, actor and comedian; Don Knotts, actor; Josh Hartnett, actor; Ernest Hemingway, author; Cat Stevens, singer-songwriter; Marshall McLuhan, author; Jon Lovitz, actor and comedian; Isaac Stern, musician; Rory Culkin, actor; Ken Starr, attorney; Norman Jewison, director; Edward Herrmann, 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.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't consider anything a "sure thing." Wait until you have all the evidence before passing any sort of judgment.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Mistrust may prove a key issue. Don't get entangled in an ideological brawl with those who are not really communicating.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Now is no time to doubt your intentions; trust yourself and stay the course. You'll receive a vote of confidence from an important figure.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're likely to have questions about an idea that others are pushing; you may not feel it is really ready to go.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll enjoy a surge in popularity, but you'll still find it necessary to court someone who has a seeming glut of resources.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you thought was a clear advantage may appear to be a disadvantage, at least during the first part of the day.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can shift things around a bit in ways that will benefit those around you as well as yourself. Something good is just beginning.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are critical of the way someone else is handling a key issue, but you may not have a better idea just yet. Keep thinking!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be tempted to rejoin a fight that you bowed out of some time ago. What's different now? Strength is derived from various sources.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll want to address a key issue head-on, which is something that no one besides you is willing to do right now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have much to consider before you announce your intentions aloud. You may find it difficult to overcome a certain personal obstacle.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You risk standing in your own way. Flexibility and maneuverability are key to your success at this time. Don't get stuck!
