Born today, you are a force of nature, but not the obvious kind. While you could be loud, outspoken and constantly on the move, you are instead rather soft-spoken and unobtrusive -- but you are always thinking, and you possess a kind of charisma that is impossible to ignore. Others are affected by you in many ways, even when you are doing little or nothing to influence them -- such is your natural power. You can change the dynamic of a room with nothing more than your presence; even when you are trying your best to be overlooked, you are sure to be noticed -- so it is virtually impossible for you to hide in a corner! You are contemplative, reflective and unusually quiet for someone with such personal magnetism and talent. You are remarkably capable and can do almost anything you set your mind to -- though there are times when it may take you more than one try to get something right.
You enjoy dreaming of things that have never been. Like a great many Cancer natives, you are able to turn many of your dreams into reality -- but those realities are surely not for everyone! Indeed, what is right for you is often wrong for nearly everyone else, and that's something that you must get used to and accept.
Also born on this date are: Julianne Hough, actress; Carlos Santana, musician; Kim Carnes, singer; Natalie Wood, actress; Omar Epps, actor; Gisele Bundchen, model; Sandra Oh, actress; Sir Edmund Hillary, mountaineer; Gregor Mendel, botanist; Judy Greer, actress; Diana Rigg, actress; Reed Diamond, actor; Donna Dixon, actress; Petrarch, poet; Adam Godley, 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 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You need to connect to those who have not been supportive of your ideas or actions in the past. Where is the common ground?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have an ax to grind, but that sort of thing can only stand in your way as you try to move forward in a new and creative way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone may be making fun of you, but that only means that you're on his or her mind. This is not a negative situation at all!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You don't have to be dependent on the system. What you do entirely on your own is likely to be far more valuable in many ways.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Are you available to step in for someone who is out of commission? You'll have to make a firm decision one way or the other before the day is out.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Those around you are eager to hear what you have to say about current trends -- and what you think should be done about them.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You mustn't forget your primary objective! Distractions abound, and you will be involved in other endeavors -- but stay focused!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be concerned that past actions will prevent you from taking the right road. You've been bearing a certain burden long enough.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are in no need of guarantees, but a fair shot would certainly make you happy! You know how to make things work for you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you have to say is likely to increase your popularity -- but not with everyone you know. Some will disagree fundamentally.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your strategy is becoming clearer to everyone in your camp. Some still harbor doubts, but they're in the minority.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your willingness to undergo hardship for others will serve both you and them very well -- and your recovery should be quick.
