Born today, you are in it for the long haul, and no one is likely to keep you from pursuing your dreams and enjoying a long and lucrative career doing exactly what you most love doing. Despite the fact that you may have stumbled into the opportunity that allowed you to pave the way for the rest of your life, you will navigate that course in a manner that is stylish, confident, capable and even quite humble. Despite your abilities, you're not one to believe what others say about you, whether good or bad. You prefer to think of yourself as rather ordinary and down-to-earth -- though anyone who knows you well knows that this is quite an understatement!
You have a keen wit and a rich imagination. The combination of the two is sure to make you unusually communicative, able to conjure all sorts of visions that others will be eager to transform into reality -- either with you, or for you. Your vast knowledge comes more from experience than from books.
Also born on this date are: Ringo Starr, musician; Michelle Kwan, figure skater; Kirsten Vangsness, actress; Satchel Paige, baseball player; Jorja Fox, actress; Doc Severinsen, musician; David McCullough, author; George Cukor, director; Billy Campbell, actor; Robert Heinlein, author.
FRIDAY, JULY 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will want to be part of something started by someone you know only in passing. Resist the temptation to engage in fortunetelling.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can change things for the better in little time, but you have certain responsibilities that may postpone such efforts.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may find yourself traveling outside familiar turf. What happens as a result will provide you with a new idea or inspiration.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Something you've believed for quite some time may be revealed as untrue -- or perhaps only half-true. You must adjust your thinking.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- In an attempt to clear yourself of an unjust charge, you may have to do something that goes against reason and instinct.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A clash of wisdom is likely to take place, with you and another at the center. What exactly do you know that others don't?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must ask certain questions in order to come up with the answers you seek. There will be very little wiggle room.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Something you have long suspected will soon be revealed -- and you will have a responsibility to fulfill because of that.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have a sacrifice to make, but you can keep things under control and possibly give up only a bare minimum.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll have a puzzle to solve before the day is out. A truth that has been in hiding will be revealed to you -- and only you, for now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will remember a past adventure and grow excited about a future endeavor that is closely related. A former partner resurfaces.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll have good reason to say no where you had originally said yes. It's time for you to do more than just observe what happens around you.
