Born today, you are always one to give others the benefit of the doubt. Even in the face of overwhelming suspicion, you will throw your support to someone who has earned it or who has been there for you in the past. You are nothing if not fair, but you are certainly not blind; you have taught yourself to deal evenly with all people, even those who might warrant harsh judgment from someone else. Why is this? It's simple: You recognize that no one is perfect, that everyone can transgress and that even a sinner has something of the saint within him or her. You see the world this way because you want to be seen this way, too -- and you want others to treat you the same way that you treat them.
You are comfortable either in the spotlight or behind the scenes, and though you can surely shine brightly when all eyes are on you, you often contribute most when you are playing a supporting role. Highly perceptive, you see all, hear all and are aware of all that goes on around you -- most of the time.
Also born on this date are: Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, U.S. first lady; Jim Davis, cartoonist; Elizabeth Berkley, actress; Sally Struthers, actress; Beatrix Potter, author; Joe E. Brown, actor and comedian; Rudy Vallee, singer; Vida Blue, baseball player; Lori Loughlin, actress.
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 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've been counting on someone else to be there for you for quite some time. He or she may not have what you need today, however.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're eager to get started on a project you've been looking forward to for some time -- but you can expect at least one false start.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your association with a certain person or organization may be coming to an end. This is not something to prevent; it's a necessary next step.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be tempted to show your generosity in a certain way, but second thoughts keep you from doing what you had originally planned.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have trouble determining, at first, who is really on your side. You'll devise an accurate "litmus test."
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll receive help from an unusual source, but you must realize that this will not be available to you every time you need it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Take the time to watch how things develop. It's important for you to understand the inner workings of a certain key system in your life.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be looking at something literally when, instead, you should examine it for its metaphoric or symbolic meaning.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll be challenged, but you have what it takes to acquit yourself well -- even if you are surprised by someone's unfair tactics.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- For now, you'll be on top simply because you have the skills required to do what is necessary. Can that be maintained indefinitely?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be vacillating between two valid points of view. Try to avoid making a decision until you are more certain.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Winning and losing are both part of the day's experience. Which you do more of will depend on your ability to be fluid and flexible.
