Born today, you want nothing more than to be known for your contributions -- to your line of work, to your family and friends, and to the world at large. Though you can be quite jovial and lighthearted at times, the truth is that you are a rather serious individual -- or, more specifically, you want to be taken seriously by others. You can satisfy this desire by doing things that matter, that are important, that are memorable -- and that affect others in positive and lasting ways. You want to leave a footprint, to be remembered and even celebrated in some way. How can you make this happen? You must be sure to follow your instincts at all times and do only what is true to your heart and soul.
You can be quite nurturing to others, and your ability to inspire is perhaps unmatched by anyone else born under your sign. This is something you do in ways that are themselves unmatched and inimitable -- and they are often new to you, too, as you discover new facets of yourself.
SUNDAY, JULY 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You and a friend are ready to work together on a project that can really soar when you hit your stride. You must know when to compromise.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What you do at home proves that you are far more involved than others might suppose. You needn't remain undercover.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're going after the sympathy vote, perhaps, but realize that not everyone is going to be on your side no matter what you say or do.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll have your eyes opened to a possibility you have never before considered -- or even known existed. Explore fully!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be facing a challenge that cannot be entirely overcome, but you can still do something that is recognized as worthwhile and useful.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You know talent when you see it, and you're likely to be introduced to someone who both impresses and inspires you. Why not team up?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Give yourself more room to explore, and you'll almost surely come up with a permanent solution to a nagging problem.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Why not simply tell it like it is? There are some who will listen, and they are likely to be on your side for the long haul.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be confused by the mixed messages you are receiving. Ignore them and do what you've always planned on doing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can give someone a much-needed boost. Evening introduces you to two very different possibilities; choose wisely.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not want to spend time doing the same old things, but what choice do you have? Perhaps you're not looking in the right places.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're ready to make a confession of sorts, but take care that you don't reveal too much too soon. You may be able to strike a deal.
