Born today, you recognize that there are two types of people in the world: those who make things happen and those to whom things happen. You will strive your entire life to be one of the first type. You are never satisfied with sitting back and letting the winds of chance buffet you about; you want to be on the front lines making things happen, for yourself and for others, even if it means failing now and then. You insist on being in charge of your destiny! You have little patience with those who seem to think that "destiny" means they have to put up with what the world offers them; rather, you believe that each person makes his or her own destiny -- and that means you will always strive to be your best at all things.
You have a rich imagination, a creative streak a mile wide and oft-conflicting emotions bubbling beneath the surface. To say you are complex is an understatement! You can be prone to dark moods and frustrations that are much more troubling than you allow them to seem to others.
Also born on this date are: Robin Williams, actor and comedian; Don Knotts, actor; Josh Hartnett, actor; Ernest Hemingway, author; Cat Stevens, singer-songwriter; Marshall McLuhan, author; Jon Lovitz, actor and comedian; Isaac Stern, musician; Rory Culkin, actor; Kenneth Starr, lawyer; Norman Jewison, director; Edward Herrmann, 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.
FRIDAY, JULY 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you ask for may not be enough to compensate for the trouble you've recently gone through for someone. Reassess your worth!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What you have promised, you can certainly deliver -- but you may have to be far more creative than you anticipated.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may feel as though you are not in the proper state of mind to support someone as he or she expects. You are misreading your feelings.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have some trouble doing something that you always do. The fact is that circumstances have changed without your knowledge.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be more interested in doing something for yourself than for another, and the choices are many. Still, avoid outright selfishness!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have every reason to believe that someone is firmly on your side. Still, a certain doubt may linger.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're likely to be surprised by the response you get when you do something unusual after being backed into a corner.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may feel you've been caught in a cycle of bad decisions that are not your own. You can break free, but not without some trouble.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It would be unfair to make demands of someone else that you wouldn't make of yourself. See if there is time to talk about the situation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're uncomfortable with how someone is treating a third party, but you may not know how to intervene in an appropriate fashion.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be unable to find the words to express what lies beneath the surface, but a loved one senses what is going on.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be concerned about where your mind wanders when left alone, but those thoughts can lead you to an important self-discovery.
