Born today, you have a way of attracting attention to yourself in ways both good and bad, but it's the good that you really focus on in life, professionally and personally. You don't get bogged down in anything that rings in a negative way; you shrug off criticism and turn away from those who would try to tear you down for any reason. You focus, instead, on opportunity and accomplishment and on being a team player as much as possible. You understand that even solo efforts depend, in large part, on other people, and you're not the kind to overlook those who are so much a part of your victories in life. Your personal contributions are remarkable in themselves, of course, and no one is likely to overlook that fact.
You're driven to do things that others have not done -- not because you want the acclaim that comes with success, but because you want to see what is over that hill, beyond that horizon, and what has otherwise been outside the reach of mere mortals. You want to go farther than ever before.

MONDAY, JULY 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Are you willing to do what is necessary to secure the esteem of those around you? It may involve something you've long resisted.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may think that you're improving things on the homefront, but the fact is that you are actually driving a wedge between you and a loved one.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Domestic affairs take on a strange new significance when you're away from the home. It's almost as if someone is watching you in some way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're going to have to share more than you had anticipated in order to get yourself and others out of a tricky situation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't let anyone stand in your way. You have places to go and people to meet, and time is of the essence.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you wear can make a big difference, especially when it comes to footwear. You don't want to risk a dangerous tumble!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may want someone to be more specific with you than he or she is willing or able to be. You must probe elsewhere for key info.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can impress someone who has been critical of you in the past. The difference is not in strategy, but in specific tactics.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You want to have things your way -- and who doesn't? This seeming conflict of interest can be worked out quite amicably.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're interested in what is going on around you, not because you are nosy, but because you recognize its potential over the long haul.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be pulled in two very different directions over a key issue. It's surely time to make up your mind once and for all.
