Born today, you are never content to rest on your laurels, no matter how spectacular any given success may be. You always want to forge ahead, strive, seek, find and never yield! The reaching of a goal, to you, is never the result of a long process, but merely something of an "intermission." This is a time for you to look back, assess, enjoy the fruits of your labors and plan for the future -- and it is a short time, at that!
To say that you are ahead of your time is surely an understatement -- but it also misses the point. You are very much of your own time, and you are not bound by traditions or expectations that shape those who live in a time defined by others. You march to the beat of your own drum, and you will not be defined in any way but that which pleases you.
Also born on this date are: Sylvester Stallone, actor; George W. Bush, U.S. president; John Paul Jones, war hero; Frida Kahlo, artist; Burt Ward, actor; Nancy Reagan, U.S. first lady; Geoffrey Rush, actor; Merv Griffin, TV mogul and talk-show host.
SUNDAY, JULY 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- New ideas come to the fore today, and you can begin to apply them to your personal situation almost immediately. Others follow your lead.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be the subject of certain accusations today that, by nightfall, will be revealed to be utterly baseless. Don't overreact.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You aren't likely to do things the way anyone else does them today. Who's going to learn from whom? You'll benefit from paying attention.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your intentions may clash with those of another today. See if you can work this out by coming up with a mutually acceptable alternative.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What you want and what you need are two very different things right now, and the day's events seem designed to prove this to you once and for all.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You don't want to engage in a competition with someone who is unable to play by the rules. This can only be frustrating -- and dangerous, too.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may find yourself at wit's end today as you struggle with a professional dilemma. The solution may well be right in front of you!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are in the middle of something far trickier than anyone might have foreseen -- but you have the tools you need to deal with it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- How you approach a certain problem today depends on how well you are able to see yourself through someone else's eyes.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you're not able to give a certain task all you've got, then why try doing it at all? Now is no time to put in a second-rate effort.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not be able to understand what someone is trying to tell you until you are doing precisely what you've been warned against.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Professional responsibilities and personal needs may conflict somewhat today -- but you can come up with a suitable compromise.
