Born today, you have strong principles, high ideals and the ability to combine both into actions that can really get things done -- including making the impossible possible. You have a kind of Midas touch, in that you are able to make things happen and maximize your rewards and the rewards of others in such a way that contentment and tangible benefits seem to rain down upon you again and again. You are not the kind to say that something is too hard, too far or too frightening. You have what it takes to work harder and go farther than anyone else to get what you want, and to ignore your fears and the outright dangers you encounter along the road. You like it when others challenge you, and you like it even more when they underestimate you and find you somewhat mysterious; you thrive on being just that kind of person.
When pressed, you can be quite demonstrative as you reveal your innermost feelings, but much of the time you prefer instead to keep things under wraps -- except when it comes to the few people who are most important to you. These individuals are privy to everything: your secrets, weaknesses, doubts -- and even your more unusual tastes.
Also born on this date are: Elizabeth Gillies, actress; Sandra Bullock, actress; Mick Jagger, singer; Kate Beckinsale, actress; Kevin Spacey, actor; Helen Mirren, actress; Vivian Vance, actress; Stanley Kubrick, director; Dorothy Hamill, Olympic figure skater; Gracie Allen, actress and comedian; George Bernard Shaw, playwright; Aldous Huxley, author; Jason Robards, actor; Carl Jung, psychiatrist; Olivia Williams, actress.

THURSDAY, JULY 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have more power today than you have had in the recent past, so you must take care that you don't run roughshod over anyone.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Interact with others carefully and take the time to assess their motives as accurately as possible. You know who your friends are.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can come up with an idea that others will accept as perfect, but one of your critics may insist that even this plan is impossible.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The choice is not easy, especially since you want a little of what each option can give you. A friend's advice will come just in time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've been focusing on what others consider important for you, but today you'll have the chance to recognize what you alone think is important.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are waiting for information from someone who seems to have left you in the lurch. Perhaps you can find it on your own. Start looking!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must keep track of your own progress and not expect anyone else to tell you where you've been or where you're going. It's up to you!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may feel as though someone has turned his or her back on you. In fact, it's you who have abandoned a friend or loved one.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are eager to be somewhere you're not, but getting there will take more than get-up-and-go on your part. You must plan carefully!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Two friends come to you with two very different requests, but there is only time for you to fulfill one of them. The decision is yours.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You've been watching so closely for an opportunity to arise in one area that you've neglected those that have come up elsewhere. Be more aware!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You and a friend may be close to a falling-out, but you can preserve the relationship by suggesting a compromise. Don't wait!
