Born today, you are nothing if not patient, and you can surely wait out anyone as you look ahead to long-term successes rather than short-term gratification. Indeed, you always have your eyes on goals that might simply be out of view for most others, but you are so far-sighted that you never feel that even your most distant aspirations will be out of reach for long. You are always thinking, always planning, always dreaming of the day when you will have what you want, when you will be able to live your life as you envision it and -- because you are so generous and philanthropic -- help others do the same. You are never one to think exclusively of yourself, and perhaps that is why you are able to postpone immediate enjoyment for the longer-lasting contentment that will surely result from hard work over the long haul.
Also born on this date are: Nelson Mandela, South African president and civil rights leader; Vin Diesel, actor; Kristen Bell, actress; Richard Branson, entrepreneur; John Glenn, astronaut and politician; Screamin' Jay Hawkins, singer; Hunter S. Thompson, writer; Red Skelton, actor and comedian; James Brolin, actor; Harriet Nelson, actress; Joe Torre, baseball manager; Elizabeth McGovern, actress; Dick Button, Olympic figure skater; Hume Cronyn, actor.
You have something of a temper, which seems to be at odds with your normally calm and cool exterior, but anger is not something that you express freely. Rather, you let it bubble beneath the surface, and you wait -- patiently, as always -- for the right moment to give your feelings free rein and full expression.
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.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not want to keep up with the news, as there's too much going on that you take personally. One item, however, you simply can't avoid.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Tend to things one at a time, and your day won't be too busy for you -- or for a friend who wants to share some time with you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It may be time to get back in touch with someone who has been giving you a lot of space lately. He or she has been waiting patiently.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You should be able to prevent a permanent rift from forming between two parties who have let a trivial conflict grow out of control.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can have all the help you need, but take care that you don't allow just anyone to encroach on certain personal territory.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone close to you will know what's going on, even if you don't share it openly. There is only so much that you can keep to yourself!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone is trying to get in touch with you for reasons beyond your understanding -- but to avoid any contact is to risk unnecessary conflict.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may think you know what a loved one really wants, but you haven't exactly been keeping up lately. Things have changed in subtle ways.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your desires can surely be satisfied, but it'll take the right person to identify them correctly and address them head-on.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An interest you and a loved one share may prove more important in the days and weeks to come than either had anticipated.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Something big is on the way, but you must get yourself prepared before you can take advantage of any opportunities that come with it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll be sought after for your particular expertise even though you are eager to move on to other things. You may need the money!
