Born today, you take self-awareness to a whole new level. While others may consider it an essential aspect of their personal or professional lives, you embrace it on an almost religious level, pursuing greater and greater self-awareness with everything you do, regardless of the goals you may be trying to reach or the people with whom you are interacting. You are always eager to learn more about yourself -- the essence of who you really are, which determines what you do, and why, in all aspects of your life. You are able to function at a remarkably high level simply because you are able to look at yourself honestly, assess what you see and work with that reality in a positive, productive fashion.
It is only when you try to deny what you are that you are likely to encounter serious difficulties in your personal life or professional affairs. Any sort of self-deception or ignorance of your identity or purpose -- whether intentional or unintentional -- is sure to turn into a major obstacle in your life.
Also born on this date are: Ashley Tisdale, actress; Lindsay Lohan, actress; Larry David, actor and producer; Richard Petty, auto racer; Thurgood Marshall, Supreme Court justice; Jerry Hall, model; Jose Canseco, baseball player; Ken Curtis, actor; Pierre Cardin, designer; Erin Burnett, television journalist; Margot Robbie, actress; Ron Silver, actor; Hermann Hesse, author; Saul Rubinek, 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.
SUNDAY, JULY 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can derive great benefit from doing less than your usual, provided you can keep yourself from habitual worry!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Others may be interested in what you have to say, not because of the substance, but the style. You have to admit -- it's a start!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've been certain that someone close to you would admit to playing a joke on you over the last several weeks, but it won't happen today.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be asking more of someone than he or she is able to give, and it's time to recognize that fact. You can push only so far.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're not in the mood to follow the rules, yet going your own way can only bring about more trouble than you know how to handle.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you're looking for the best, you may not have to look any farther than your immediate environs. Someone you know may surprise you!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're putting things in the wrong order, but for all the right reasons. Stick with it, and others may adjust to your thinking.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The unusual reigns. Be ready to take in something that will quite possibly throw you completely off balance -- but in a good way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Others may be watching you and judging what you do. To be sure you get favorable reviews, stick to what you know best.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There can be too much of a good thing, certainly. You're likely to find out just what that means, especially to your pocketbook!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Guard against being fooled by someone who would separate you from your money for no good reason. Investigate any seeming "bargains."
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be considering something that is, for you, a bit of an extravagance -- but some would tell you that it is about time!
