Born today, you are just the kind of person who can prove to be a hero to others -- quite possibly a great many others, in fact! You are a solid, upstanding, honest, hardworking individual who prefers to be direct and even blunt rather than deceptive in any way. As far as you are concerned, "what you see is what you get" -- or so it should be! You have few fears, and you do not let even them stand in your way; you will charge forward with confidence even when a situation has you facing your fears directly. You believe wholeheartedly in the adage "nothing ventured, nothing gained," and you prove the wisdom of the saying again and again in your daily life. You are often successful in situations that others think are beyond you.
Your charisma and personal magnetism will surely prove valuable in both your personal life and professional affairs, but it is in private that you are more likely to affect others with the sheer force of your personality. Indeed, when it comes to love, there's no telling who may fall under your spell!

THURSDAY, JULY 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Environmental influences may have you straying off course for a time, but you can get back on track before any serious problem develops.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may find yourself moving slowly toward a point of danger for no reason other than that you feel compelled to. Control yourself!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Now is not the time to try to do something in a wholly different way; everyone else is eager to experience it in the way they're used to.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The fact that you so thoroughly understand what you are facing doesn't negate the fear that you feel. You can still progress, however.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Others may be waiting for you to arrive at a conclusion that they already acknowledge. What is taking you so long?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can do your work your way and still win the approval of someone who has traditionally been critical of you and your style.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may feel compelled to request help from someone who, in the past, has been difficult to work with -- but things are different now.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You've got a problem to solve, and only so much time in which to solve it. Someone you've worked with before may hold the key.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may find yourself on the front lines of a battle being waged between two parties who are not considering your position at all.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Give yourself credit for a job well done, even though you may not quite remember what you did! The full effects are only now being felt.
