Born today, you are so open and approachable that you're not likely to have any trouble making friends at any time throughout your life, no matter what phases you may go through or how you may be navigating success or failure. You enjoy people, and you are never afraid of letting someone get close to you. There are those, however, who may suspect that all of this is merely a ruse, a way of living your life that you have cultivated intentionally to get what you want out of other people. Nothing could be further from the truth, for you do not have a deceitful or duplicitous bone in your body!
You can be quite sensitive to criticism, and so you are all the more willing to work hard to be the best that you can be at any endeavor you choose. Indeed, what people say about you can be a great motivator, and you are likely to remember even the slightest criticism or praise long after it has been offered to you.
Also born on this date are: Julianne Hough, dancer; Carlos Santana, musician; Kim Carnes, singer; Natalie Wood, actress; Omar Epps, actor; Gisele Bundchen, model; Sandra Oh, actress; Sir Edmund Hillary, mountaineer.

SUNDAY, JULY 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your power is on the rise, and your influence is being felt far and wide. Take care, however, that you don't start thinking you are invincible.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The bigger they are, the harder they fall -- or so goes the adage. Today, you witness a demonstration that teaches an invaluable lesson.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may come across someone who isn't ready or willing to listen to reason. If it comes down to a contest of wills, you've got the edge.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Stepping a little outside of your comfort zone today can actually prepare you for a challenge that is fast coming your way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must be ready for some intense interaction early in the day. Once this period has passed, you can do things in a more routine manner.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You and a rival may realize that there's more value in working together than against each other. Is this possible? Can it start now?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A new project beckons, but you may not feel prepared just yet. A little reading and a little experimentation give you the boost you need.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be fighting against certain influences that have only recently begun being felt. You have a sense of where this is all leading.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Things are likely to continue along their current path for a while, but you'll have the chance to try something new before the day is out.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be quite restless today, but there's little you can do now to feel more productive. Things are likely to change tomorrow.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone in your care may not be following instructions, and you have only so much time in which to teach the importance of doing so.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can approach certain tasks and responsibilities in a new way today, and not only increase your own enjoyment, but your productivity as well.
