Born today, you are perhaps the single most curious individual born under your sign, and this will certainly give you an advantage in your more important endeavors -- though it may also bring you face to face with danger quite often. You insist on being given the freedom to do what you want, when you want, not so much because you are particularly willful, but because you believe this is the best way to experience the world, and the only way that allows you to learn everything you need to know. You will go at a thing until it is conquered, until it is yours, until it has given up all its secrets and bestowed you with the experience you desire. You will never give up on an endeavor as long as you feel there is something to be gained by going in that direction.
You may, on at least two occasions in your life, look back and wonder why you made the decisions you did, and how they could possibly have led you to where you stand. This is a fine exercise, and it can yield much information -- but it's not something that should stop you in your tracks for long. You must always move forward, ever forward, into the future.
Also born on this date are: Maya Rudolph, actress and comedian; Jonathan Rhys Meyers, actor; Jerry Van Dyke, actor; Betty Thomas, actress; Taylor Schilling, actress; Peggy Fleming, Olympic figure skater; Norman Lear, television producer; Maureen McGovern, singer; Christopher Dean, Olympic ice dancer; Johann Bernoulli, mathematician; Keenan Wynn, actor; Leo Durocher, baseball manager.
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 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your questions are likely to fall on deaf ears during the first part of the day, but later on you'll be heard and answered. Be patient.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take no offense where none is offered. You mustn't misinterpret another's words or deeds. Give a third party something to think about.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can lead someone to what has been a foregone conclusion in your estimation for quite some time. He or she is ready to join forces.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to lay down the law to someone who has been playing fast and loose of late. Once this is done, you can work closely together.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Any greetings you give are likely to be interpreted in ways other than you intended -- even when you're dealing with loyal friends.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to point out to others what appears obvious to you, more than once. Are they not paying attention, or are you not being clear?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- An argument will ensue after you make an offer that is not what was expected by other parties. Let tempers cool and negotiations begin.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're ready to make a deal, but not everyone is as up to speed as you are. You'll want to take some time to provide key information.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are going to want some clarification before you commit to something that you can't undo. What are the ground rules here?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You mustn't be tempted to go back on your word. What you promised, you must give. Remember that others may be watching you closely.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have some advice to give a youngster, but it may fall on deaf ears -- or be a bit too late to be effective.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find yourself playing ball with someone who doesn't know all the rules. It's best to demonstrate, rather than lecture.
