Born today, you have a curious and adventurous spirit that will lead you into one complicated, possibly dangerous endeavor after another. Many of these will not even present you with the promise of reward at the end, but only the experience itself as the ultimate benefit. You are eager to study the ways of the world and to learn all you can about other places and peoples, and you're willing to travel far and wide in pursuit of that knowledge. You aren't likely to follow the guidance of others or take suggestions that are safe or conservative; you are determined to do precisely what you want to do, what you feel compelled to do, what you know you must do to satisfy your cravings for involvement, personal growth and development. You are not one to follow a single path; to you, contentment lies at the end of many roads.
You are highly creative, and you know how to inspire others and tap into their creativity as well, encouraging and fostering it. There are some who may suggest that you are merely taking advantage, but you offer too much of yourself and too many rewards to those around you for these relationships to be considered at all one-sided.
Also born on this date are: Jennifer Lopez, singer and actress; Amelia Earhart, pioneer aviator; Elisabeth Moss, actress; Kristin Chenoweth, actress; Anna Paquin, actress; Lynda Carter, actress; Rose Byrne, actress; Karl Malone, basketball player; Michael Richards, actor and comedian; Simon Bolivar, Venezuelan leader; Ruth Buzzi, actress and comedian; Alexandre Dumas, author; Robert Hays, actor; Chris Sarandon, actor; Gallagher, comedian.
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.
TUESDAY, JULY 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be feeling pressured by those working against you and the clock, but only one can be harnessed. Use time to your advantage.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can inspire others and, in the process, inspire yourself. Someone you've long looked up to will provide you with a new motivation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can enjoy some much-needed relaxation, but only if you work hard during the first of the day to address key responsibilities.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Those who choose to move closer to you will do so because you offer something that no one else can. This will all start to make sense to you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- One phase ends and another begins, but not in such an abrupt fashion as it sounds. Things will blend smoothly from one to the other.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to face certain challenges that are not presented to others, but this says a lot about how the powers that be see you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Put nothing off until tomorrow that you can do today -- it's time to get things done! Keep a tally of what is and is not completed.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may not be in the room when someone else makes a decision that affects everyone, but you will contribute when the time comes.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Calling on someone else to do what you feel you should be doing yourself will not improve your state of mind. Accept responsibility!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your emotions are likely to run the gamut between harmonious and tempestuous -- and all because of something you did or did not say.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The day progresses in an unusual fashion, perhaps, but not in a way that prevents you from keeping up with your own development.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Use any spare time to make and perfect a plan that can be implemented tomorrow -- or perhaps as early as the end of business today.
