Born today, you are no stranger to hardship, as you have chosen a path in life that will bring you face-to-face with the kinds of things that most others would choose to avoid in the course of their daily lives. You are not "most others," however, and you are likely to pursue a life that is quite different from the lives of those around you. You fully understand that breaking the mold and doing things in your own way can be difficult, and you are more than willing to do whatever is necessary to reach your goals, regardless of the odds against you or obstacles that may stand in your way. You are not a stubborn individual; you are, however, ambitious and determined!
You know how to solicit and take advice from those you consider experts, but you always reserve the right to do things the way you think they should be done, even if it means flying in the face of the best counsel and guidance. You will not let yourself be controlled or "handled" by others.
Also born on this date are: Sofia Vergara, actress; Jessica Simpson, singer; Jake LaMotta, boxer; Fred Gwynne, actor; Arlo Guthrie, singer; Arthur Ashe, tennis player; Fiona Shaw, actress; David Brinkley, journalist; John Calvin, religious reformer; Roger Craig, football player; Robert Pine, actor; Adrian Grenier, actor.
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 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There is a certain unique method to your madness, though others are not likely to follow your logic. Keep doing what you're doing!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll have only a very small margin for error, so proceed slowly -- and do so only after you have prepared yourself for all eventualities.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You needn't be too cautious; there are certain benefits to being a little bolder than usual. Enlist a partner if you choose.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your emotions may be more tangled than usual. Take time to sort things out on your own. Avoid the company of someone too critical.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are tempted to engage in behavior that someone else has warned you against. Why are you so eager to put yourself in danger?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are determined, but not highly organized. Once you get things in order, you can surely make headway at a relatively fast pace.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Self-doubt can only work against you -- as always. There's no reason for you to feel as though you cannot do a thing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can benefit greatly from the actions of another that take place behind the scenes. When the time comes, show your gratitude.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- That which is highly personal to someone else may be strictly business to you -- and the contrast will be quite clear.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Others may think that you're unfocused because you are trying to move in two directions at once. This is necessary for you, however.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're waiting patiently for the current phase to come to an end, for only then will you be able to accept a new invitation.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find yourself helping someone else for all the wrong reasons. This will require a little soul-searching to figure out.
