Born today, you have many natural talents, but you're unlikely to develop all of them to their fullest because, at an early age, you discovered that one or two can bring you the most immediate gratification and material reward if you focus exclusively on them. Does this make you cheap or shallow? Some may say so, but the truth is that it merely makes you a realistic proponent of success. You know what can bring you success, and you will develop that faculty fully and pursue the opportunities it presents to you without hesitation. You do not always take the easy route; you will, however, take the route that brings you to the threshold of accomplishment -- whether it is easy or not!
Also born on this date are: Tom Cruise, actor; Thomas Gibson, actor; Sandra Lee, celebrity chef; Kurtwood Smith, actor; Montel Williams, television personality; Moises Alou, baseball player; Hunter Tylo, model and actress; George M. Cohan, songwriter; Betty Buckley, actress and singer; George Sanders, actor; Tom Stoppard, playwright; Ken Russell, director; Aaron Tippin, singer; Olivia Munn, actress; Laura Branigan, singer.
You don't put a great deal of stock in what others say about you; if you did, you would never be able to dig in and accomplish as much as you do, since you would have to spend all of your time refuting opinions expressed by those who do not know you well. You have a few close friends whom you trust to tell you how things really are.
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 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You know where you can find precisely what you need, but carving out enough time to go and get it may prove tricky.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're ready to take a chance on someone -- at long last -- and you know just how much is on the line. Success is not guaranteed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're eager to explore new personal or professional territory. The opportunity presents itself to head in that direction.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may want to check and double-check your work before you consider it complete. Any missing component can prove disastrous.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A simple endeavor may become more difficult because of the rules you have to follow and the hoops you have to jump through.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone close to you is in a position to do you a big favor, but you may not be able to ask for that favor directly. You'll find a way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're able to capitalize on someone's mistake, but take care that you don't go to such extremes that you do any emotional harm.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Appearances are important, so you must acknowledge the authority of someone who actually knows much less than you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Success depends upon your ability to say the right things in the right way so that the gears are oiled and egos are satisfied.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- This is a good time to revisit an old project and see if you can make some small adjustments to bring it back to life.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be trying to do something that few have done before. Your chances of success are far greater.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Someone may ask you a question that renders you entirely speechless. It's not that you are stumped, exactly -- or is it?
