Born today, you seem at once to be disarmingly simple and straightforward, and yet at the same time there is something of the politician about you -- one who can see and appreciate all sides of an issue and highlight that aspect of your personality that is most suitable to whatever situation you may find yourself in. This can result, of course, in some consternation among those who think they know you well, for you can be quite difficult to define or pin down. You may, in fact, be mistaken quite often for a Gemini native, so clearly delineated seem the two -- or more -- facets of your complex personality.
While you are quite clever, there are times in which your emotions may get the better of you. You sometimes find that you need to have someone you trust by your side to see you through life's difficult patches.
Also born on this date are: Nelson Mandela, South African president and world civil rights leader; Vin Diesel, actor; Kristen Bell, actress; Richard Branson, entrepreneur; Red Skelton, actor and comedian; John Glenn, astronaut and statesman; Hunter S. Thompson, writer.

FRIDAY, JULY 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can get more done during morning hours than you had planned, leaving you with ample time to indulge in a personal pleasure later on.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to do something in a very strange way today in order for it to have the effect you desire. Use your imagination!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- While trying to maximize your stability, you may encounter someone who threatens to overturn the entire boat. It's time for you to step in.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may experience something of a rough ride today, as you stop and start quite suddenly to address the unexpected.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're likely to receive the support you expect -- and, by all accounts, deserve. Take care that you don't become complacent, however!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're getting used to something that is in no way advantageous, but you should continue working toward its eradication.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Tension rises today, and you're in a position to ease it when you can. No one else is likely to have quite the right touch.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Overindulgence today is sure to win you more than physical ills; the criticism you receive may be harder to deal with than anything else.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are creeping closer, ever closer, to a precipice. It's a personal situation, but one you may want to share with a friend.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Everything makes a difference today, and that which you ignore or overlook is likely to do more to slow you down than anything else.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You don't want to be alone when dealing with a certain tricky situation, but all you really need is for someone to watch your back.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can keep things carefully in balance throughout much of the day -- until an unexpected guest throws things out of whack.
