Born today, you will appear on the scene -- whenever and wherever that may be -- with a dramatic flair that is sure to win you the admiration of many, and perhaps inspire the envy of others. You will seem, upon any first meeting, to have a great deal going for you. You carry yourself with confidence and pride, and you exude a kind of comfort -- with yourself, others and the world around you -- that allows you to have your way in many situations. Indeed, you may have what you want simply by asking for it, especially while you are young and first making your way in the world. Later in life, you may find that things come at a higher price, but that is only because you will have entered a realm of greater competition! Have no fear -- when it comes to any one-on-one, you have what it takes to prevail.
You are likely to enjoy a long, lucrative career, though you may not always be in the limelight -- and this actually doesn't displease you. Despite your knack for attracting attention, there are stretches of time when you wish to be left alone.
Also born on this date are: Edie Falco, actress; Huey Lewis, singer; Katherine Helmond, actress; Georges Pompidou, former French president; P.T. Barnum, circus entrepreneur; Jean Cocteau, novelist; Jenji Kohan, television writer and producer.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be able to visualize things just the way you want them, but that doesn't make them so. You must work hard to realize that vision!
