Born today, you are clever, quick, adaptable and always willing to try something new if a pattern of behavior proves to be less effective than expected -- for any reason whatsoever. You are more keenly aware of the world around you than most other Cancer natives, and you are able to adjust how you think and what you do in order to make the most of the opportunities that the world has to offer. You are honest and straightforward, and not as secretive as some -- but neither are you the kind to reveal everything to those around you.
You are almost certain to forge a career path for yourself that allows you to follow your own rules, do things your own way and schedule your activities to suit your needs. There will be times in which you must fulfill the expectations of others, but you will work hard to keep them to a minimum. You certainly prefer to march to the beat of your own drum!
Also born on this date are: Harrison Ford, actor; Sir Patrick Stewart, actor; Yadier Molina, baseball player; Cheech Marin, actor and comedian; Nathan Bedford Forrest, military leader.
SUNDAY, JULY 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be putting yourself in a vulnerable position by taking what someone else tells you at face value. Do a little digging!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are quite flexible today, and as a result you can avoid the kinds of situations that result when you dig in your heels.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can recognize the many advantages you have today, but you may still be focused on situations that seem to put you at a slight disadvantage.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to do a little investigating on your own in order to get to the bottom of something today that's been troubling you for some time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone in charge isn't likely to be in the mood for games today; you must keep things moving in the most direct, unsurprising manner possible.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your first efforts today may not win the results you're hoping for; only after a second try will you be satisfying expectations.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Others are waiting for you to make a decision today, and you can be sure they will be happy with whatever choice you make -- for now.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll see things more clearly than others today, especially when it comes to opportunities and the disguised hazards they may present.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What you've taken upon yourself may be quite daunting, but if you pace yourself, you can surely come through -- and satisfy the "boss."
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You will want to be sure that others are on board with you before expecting anything from them. Not everyone is playing by the same rules.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your ability to second-guess someone in charge will serve you well today, and keep you out of situations that are not good for you right now.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may wake to find that someone has gotten the jump on a situation you were afraid would get the better of you both. You can lend assistance.
