Born today, you are very much the kind of person to whom others turn in times of trouble, for you are thoughtful, instinctive and capable of maintaining a calm approach to even the most critical problems. You are often so soft-spoken that others may mistake your tone for a lack of care -- but this is certainly not the case! You care deeply about your affairs and the affairs of those around you. You are sympathetic of any cause promoted by the "underdog" and will do all you can to ensure success -- and often the mere mention of your name in support of someone's efforts does the trick! You have a great many friends and admirers -- and very few enemies.
Though you covet your privacy, there is nothing in your closet to be ashamed of; indeed, you live your life in the open, and care very little if you are the subject of conjecture, speculation or rumor. You are loyal, generous and genuine. With you, others know very well what they're getting.
Also born on this date are: Tom Hanks, actor; Jack White, singer, songwriter and guitarist; Courtney Love, singer and actress; Fred Savage, actor and director; Jimmy Smits, actor; John Tesh, media personality and musician; Kelly McGillis, actress; Chris Cooper, actor; Richard Roundtree, actor; Donald Rumsfeld, statesman.
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 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you think of a certain tradition may be put to the test today as others expect you to join in. What does it really mean to you?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not have the funds to make a certain purchase today -- but if you play your cards right your coffers will certainly expand very soon.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A misunderstanding is easily made right today when you undo something that needn't have been done in the first place. It is up to you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You mustn't give up on what you want, as it is likely just beyond your reach today. A good friend comes to you with two or three suggestions.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What gives you pleasure today may be something that rubs someone close to you the wrong way. You can reach a workable compromise, however.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may get an ultimatum from a friend who is betting that you will cooperate. You can do the right thing when all is said and done.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are seeing someone else in a new light today, but this doesn't have to affect the relationship in any appreciable way. Not yet, anyway!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You receive a compliment from someone who has never before been a big fan. You have no reason to believe he or she has an ulterior motive.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A situation arises today that requires you to consider an option long ago dismissed. Your prior experience will see you through.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It's important for you to strategize today; you mustn't simply hope that everything works out for the best.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A life change is on the horizon if you continue along your current path. You have several immediate options to consider first, however.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can put two and two together and come up with something very different from what you and others expect. You have a magic touch!
