Born today, you are not always one to share what is going on with those around you, and you are likely to cultivate a strong public persona that often belies the inner sensitivity that is part of the "real you." You don't like others to know that you are not really as ambitious or as knowledgeable as you seem to be, and you will go to great lengths to create a kind of "role" that you can play when you are in the spotlight. There is much that you keep under wraps; indeed, you will no doubt come to believe that it is your secrets that truly make you who you are.
When it comes to fear and insecurity, you are as prone to these feelings as anyone -- and yet because you are so adept at hiding them you may at times fall prey to them in ways that others do not. This can result in long periods of emotional turbulence from which you may find it very difficult to recover.
Also born on this date are: Al Pacino, actor; Renee Zellweger, actress; Jason Lee, actor; Talia Shire, actress; Hank Azaria, actor; Meadowlark Lemon, basketball player; Oliver Cromwell, English statesman; Edward R. Murrow, newsman; Joe Buck, sportscaster; Paul Mazursky, director.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A reminder to others also serves as a reminder to you -- and you mustn't get defensive about it. Everyone needs a little help now and then!
