Born today, you do not invest yourself in the problems of others; you remain objective and clearheaded -- which benefits everyone, including those who are relying on you for help! You are always on the lookout for a new opportunity -- not that you get bored easily, for you are able to commit to endeavors for the long-term, but rather that you don't want to miss out on something that might come along unexpectedly. You are able to apply your energies to many things at once, and such multitasking gives you a distinct professional advantage. You are highly creative, but you use that creativity in very practical ways.
Others might find you confusing at times when they misinterpret your words or actions and find that you are not at all what you seem to be. You are likely to win a great deal of praise in your lifetime, and you accept criticism gracefully. You understand that no one is perfect -- and you are always eager to improve yourself.
Also born on this date are: Matt LeBlanc, actor; Walter Payton, football player; Estelle Getty, actress; Iman, model and actress; Walter Brennan, actor; Brad Renfro, actor; Illeana Douglas, actress; Maxfield Parrish, artist.
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.
THURSDAY, JULY 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A "friend" shows his or her true colors and forces you to make a determination about the status of the relationship. Be honest!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Time is passing and there's nothing you can do about it -- but there's certainly much you can do to fill the hours productively on many fronts.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have trouble saying what needs to be said to a Cancer or Leo native who is trying very hard to do what is right.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Despite your best efforts, not everyone is likely to appreciate that you are at the center of the action. Perhaps it's time to step aside.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are able to see the difference between two possible outcomes and are therefore able to steer others in the right direction.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are ready for something new, something that others have been trying to avoid. It's a good thing -- and you can prove it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not have any "magic bullet," but your words of encouragement can help someone who is stuck in a very difficult and stressful situation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Nothing angers you more than not being listened to by someone who has asked you for advice -- especially when the advice you give is sound.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You and another are flirting with an attraction that may threaten to change everything very soon. Are you willing to let that happen?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not be able to do precisely what you want today because of a quickly developing situation that is beyond your control.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The more you try to explain yourself, the more you are likely to find it impossible to make sense of what is really going on.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you can do and what you are willing to do are two very different things; today, you may not have as much of a choice as you think.
