Born today, you are youthful, energetic and quite visionary; you are able to seize an opportunity and exploit it for all it's worth -- while, at the same time, maintaining fair and honest interactions with all those who may be on your side or who may be competing against you. Indeed, you are nothing if not equitable and fair in your treatment of others -- at work, at play and in the comfort of your own home. You are never one to expect to receive something for nothing; you know that advancement in this world is the product of dedication and hard work. You can be quite quirky, and sometimes your behavior is unorthodox or unexpected -- but those who know you best have come to expect the unexpected from you.
You are highly creative, and you know how to use the rules to increase your own productivity. You have great faith in those who have gone before, and your respect for trailblazers knows no bounds -- but you're not the kind to follow in their footsteps. You will take what others have done and reshape it in your own image to pursue success on your terms.
Also born on this date are: Jaden Smith, actor; Kevin Bacon, actor; Toby Keith, country singer; Anjelica Huston, actress; John D. Rockefeller, businessman; Steve Lawrence, actor and songwriter; Wolfgang Puck, celebrity chef.
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 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have a certain advantage over the competition today, but you mustn't take it for granted or squander it in any way. Stay focused!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be reunited with someone who gets the best out of you in even the worst situations. Your excitement level increases greatly today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have trouble completing simple tasks today because you are so immersed in events that are too complicated. Strike a balance.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must be willing to look at things in a far more detailed way than usual today. What happened yesterday will impact what happens today, surely.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may find yourself pulled in more than one direction today by someone who doesn't understand how involved you really are in other things.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Complications can be explained by day's end, but only after you put in a lot of effort to figure out just exactly what went wrong.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be surprised when the weather refuses to cooperate today. You can make on-the-spot adjustments, however, and see things through.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must work hard to prepare for a coming effort that you suspect will be more difficult than others are anticipating. Ask questions!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The difference between "seems" and "is" will be very clear to you throughout the day, and you may have to make it clear to those around you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are planning to go farther today than you think may be required, but that's good reasoning; you may be delayed somewhat in the days to come.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are eager to see where the current road leads, but you mustn't do anything that takes undue advantage of anyone around you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are eager to get things done as quickly as possible -- but it's all relative! Today, nothing is likely to happen very fast at all.
