Born today, you are one of the most forthright, honest, plain-speaking individuals born under your sign. Never phony, you insist that others treat you with the respect that you give them as a matter of course, and that they discuss openly any matter that merits discussion. You don't like beating about the bush or avoiding the "elephant in the room"; you want to have things out and address the problem as soon as possible, to ensure that it will be a problem for as short a period of time as possible! You can be tough with your critics or anyone who comes up against you at work or at play, but because you don't take things personally, you are not apt to lash out intentionally in order to hurt anyone's feelings. In your presence, everything takes on a businesslike character.
You can sometimes be overconfident, but strangely enough, you are far less bold in matters of love and romance. You are often reasonably successful when it comes to such things, but "playing the game" doesn't come naturally. To you, finding love can seem quite difficult!
Also born on this date are: Jane Wyman, actress; Diane Keaton, actress; Suzy Amis, actress; Clancy Brown, actor; January Jones, actress; Ted Lange, actor; Pamela Sue Martin, actress; Jeane Dixon, astrologer; Marilyn Manson, singer; Juan Carlos I, king of Spain; Walter Mondale, politician; Zebulon Pike, explorer; Bradley Cooper, 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.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A change in circumstances may have you feeling as though you no longer have the support that you once counted on. Set that fear aside.
