Born today, you are a highly creative, energetic and progressive individual with tremendous vision. You don't fool around when you have set your sights on a goal; you work tirelessly until you reach it -- and you never let distractions pull you off course. You do not engage in small talk, and you have no use for gossip or rumors of any kind. You deal in hard facts, even when you are enjoying social situations. You want to talk about the things that affect you in your daily life, and not those things that are merely of casual interest to others. Perhaps it's no surprise, then, that you are very choosy when it comes to the social scene; you prefer to mix and mingle with a choice few!
Also born on this date are: Jennifer Lopez, singer and actress; Amelia Earhart, pioneer aviator; Kristin Chenoweth, actress; Anna Paquin, actress; Lynda Carter, actress; Barry Bonds, baseball player; Rose Byrne, actress; Karl Malone, basketball player; Alexandre Dumas, author; Chris Sarandon, actor; Gallagher, comedian; Elisabeth Moss, actress.
Though you certainly don't want to make things harder for yourself than you have to, the truth is that you will never take a shortcut when you have any doubts about its overall effectiveness. You want what you want and if that requires effort, then so be it!
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.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's time to put your head together with someone else's and work on a problem that has been plaguing you both, separately, for quite some time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The time has come for you to acknowledge one or two possibilities that you have not wanted to accept. The reality cannot be denied any longer.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You have much to do before you can clear your schedule and work on the personal project that really gives you a sense of joy.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to use unusual caution today as you enter unfamiliar territory that is clearly treacherous. Take it slow; don't overreact.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You want answers to questions you don't know yet. That may seem counterintuitive, but it's often the way you approach a new problem.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Doing things in just the right order can make all the difference today. Don't let someone who is not involved call the shots for you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can make arrangements that benefit your agenda today without doing anything to harm anyone else's chances for success.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You sense that you are nearing an important personal goal. This achievement will be something you'll want others to acknowledge, surely.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be reluctant to ask a certain someone for help, but you may find that he or she has actually been waiting for you to ask.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your ability to stay the course when others are drifting aimlessly says much about your dedication -- and your strength of character.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can afford to have some fun today -- even, for a while, at someone else's expense. You'll have to make up for this later, of course.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may want to engage in some experimentation today to see if your ideas really hold water. One thing you do attracts unexpected attention.
