Born today, you are not always willing to do what is best for you. In fact, there may be times when you actually act in a way that is in direct opposition to your best interests. So what is this all about? The fact is that you feel compelled to do whatever appeals to you in the moment, in an impulsive, even knee-jerk fashion, without taking the time to assess any risks you might encounter in the process. This is not always your way, however; when working or playing with others, you tend to be far more careful, for while you may not care if you endanger yourself, you're not about to endanger others in the same way. Still, you may want to learn how to make critical decisions in a more thoughtful way -- for your own good!
On the flip side, you can be quite guarded when it comes to your personal affairs. Indeed, you are often cautious when it comes to revealing yourself or opening your heart to another. You can be sociable, but you often enjoy solitude best -- or the company of only one or two special friends.
Also born on this date are: Jaden Smith, actor; Kevin Bacon, actor; Toby Keith, singer; Anjelica Huston, actress; John D. Rockefeller, businessman; Steve Lawrence, actor; Wolfgang Puck, celebrity chef; Jeffrey Tambor, actor; Marty Feldman, actor; Hugo Boss, designer; Nelson Rockefeller, politician.

SATURDAY, JULY 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Something is missing, and you know just how important it is -- to you and to those closely associated with you. It's time to mount a search.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It matters not where a good idea comes from, only that you are able to make valuable use of it -- in a manner that is aboveboard.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're being directed by someone who may not know the way. You will know when it's time to break free and go off on your own.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not notice what is right in front of your eyes until someone alerts you to its presence. Things may soon heat up!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- In attempting to deceive someone, you may only be deceiving yourself. Why not come clean and allow things to calm down a bit?
