Born today, you are considered by many to be the classic representative of the Cancer native: shy, reserved, uncomfortable in public and only seeming content when surrounded by the comforts of home. You choose to share your "true self" with only a very few friends of your own making -- and you may even avoid the company of family members more often than not! You cannot abide small talk, but you will engage in conversation over important issues when circumstances require it. You would usually much rather write things down than talk about them, and you have a way of expressing yourself through the written word that is remarkable indeed.
You do not make a good first impression, usually, and when it comes to love you must accept the fact that only through patience and perseverance are you likely to win the object of your affections. You enjoy the company of those who enjoy your company, but you're not one to go out of your way to make friends of strangers.
Also born on this date are: Benedict Cumberbatch, actor; Anthony Edwards, actor; Campbell Scott, actor; Edgar Degas, artist; Samuel Colt, inventor; Vikki Carr, singer; George McGovern, statesman; Ilie Nastase, tennis player; Lisa Lampanelli, comedian.

SATURDAY, JULY 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You and a partner are bringing much of value to the table, but you may feel as though an unfair burden is being placed on you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to put in a little extra effort today in order to see everything come out as expected. A certain obstacle slows you down.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may want to shift your perspective some today in order to get a better look at what others insist is quickly coming your way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A familiar strategy pays off handsomely today. You have the opportunity to welcome a new player to your team and improve your game plan.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You want to raise the bar and increase your productive output. A friend or partner is ready to unveil a new plan that you can implement today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can learn much from a younger compatriot even as you teach him or her a thing or two about what is coming up. You're in this together!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not like the sound of something you are told by an "official," but your own investigation uncovers a few surprising truths.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A new strategy needs a little "massaging" today before it really starts to yield results. You can perhaps use some extra "training," too.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're suspicious of someone who is working behind the scenes. See if you can increase the level of direct communication today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may become more excited today about something that isn't likely to affect you for some time. What you foresee gives you a boost.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not have much help today, but if you simply establish and maintain a comfortable pace you can get almost everything done.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You cannot afford to drift too far out of your comfort zone today. What you are told in a moment of stress gives you food for thought.
