Born today, you are determined to live life according to your own rules, in your own style, doing the things that matter to you, without binding yourself to any sort of expectations that might otherwise be imposed upon you by the rest of the world. This isn't always going to endear you to others; in fact, there are times when you may come under fire for being so independent -- but that's nothing you cannot deal with, privately if not publicly. You treat everyone around you with the same courtesy; even your friends cannot claim to receive special treatment from you, for you try very hard to avoid favoritism at all times. You choose, instead, to treat everyone as equals, as if each person were just as important to you as everyone else.
You have a number of marketable talents, but your interests are significantly fewer. In fact, you are likely to leave many of these gifts unexplored because you feel compelled to develop only one or two to their fullest. Success, for you, is marked by an inner contentment that is very much your own.
Also born on this date are: Prince, singer-songwriter and musician; Tom Jones, singer; Liam Neeson, actor; Dean Martin, singer and actor; Bear Grylls, television personality; Kim Rhodes, actress; Anna Kournikova, tennis player; Paul Gauguin, painter; Jessica Tandy, actress; James Ivory, filmmaker; Thurman Munson, baseball player; James J. Braddock, boxer.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must be willing to expose yourself to a certain danger if you're going to make the headway you had hoped for.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Events of the day are likely to change your mind about something you had thought was a certainty. Other changes are in the wind, too.
