Born today, you look upon the world as one vast arena of opportunity. You are never likely to cease learning; you thrive on collecting all kinds of information from all kinds of people living in all kinds of places. Indeed, you are likely to enjoy many lengthy periods in your life in which you are quite peripatetic, traveling here and there to immerse yourself in other cultures. You especially enjoy learning about people by sharing their dining traditions, and you are more than willing to try anything at least once, no matter how unusual.
When it comes to love, you are one of the most stable and loyal individuals born under your sign -- or any sign. Once you have committed to a relationship, you are in it for life. Of course, you demand the same kind of faithfulness in return; you can forgive one or two minor betrayals, but nothing more.
Also born on this date are: Eva Marie Saint, actress; Calvin Coolidge, U.S. president; Gina Lollobrigida, actress; Gloria Stuart, actress; Bill Withers, singer and songwriter; Abigail Van Buren and Ann Landers, columnists; Geraldo Rivera, TV news personality; Andrew Zimmern, celebrity chef; Nathaniel Hawthorne, writer; Neil Simon, playwright.
THURSDAY, JULY 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll want to take any and all precautions today before setting out on a journey for which you can only plan so far. Accidents will happen.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're not going to have the experience you expect -- but you can actually improve the outcome by doing something that goes against the grain.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll want to pay close attention to the things that seem to reach out to you in new ways. There are rules to follow, but only for so long.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you imagine can surely come to pass today. You may need some help laying the groundwork, however.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can help a friend in a way that allows others to believe that you are both making strides. Perception is everything!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don't assume that you can make things happen the way you usually do; there are subtle differences that you'll be dealing with all day.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Trust is an issue today, but you can do well before someone raises a concern that everyone around you must address directly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will uncover what you want where you least expect to find it today -- but once that happens everything else goes according to plan.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There is room in your schedule for a few indulgences -- but take care you're not asking for too much too soon. Don't go overboard!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You don't want to put stock in fortune-telling today, but you will surely want to listen to someone whose experience can anticipate events.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can demonstrate just what is at stake today by upping your game in a way that some might call ostentatious. It's all part of the job!
