Born today, you are a rather uncomplicated, straightforward and forthright individual, and you rarely if ever feel the necessity to hide the truth about yourself, what you think or what you do from the outside world. You are an open book, and as such you can be quite easy to "read" -- and that means, of course, that you can be taken advantage of by those who are immoral, unscrupulous or simply ill-meaning.
You feel that you are something of an underdog, and you will never forget where you came from, and no matter how successful you might be or how high up the ladder of accomplishment you might climb, you're not one to forget what it took to get there. You are proud and carry yourself with a certain dignity -- though you always keep your feet solidly on the ground.
Also born on this date are: Selena Gomez, singer; David Spade, actor; Danny Glover, actor; Bobby Sherman, singer; Alex Trebek, game show host; A.J. Cook, actress; Don Henley, musician; Willem Dafoe, actor.

TUESDAY, JULY 23

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You needn't extend things today; keep your efforts short and efficient. Someone may try to stand in your way, but only temporarily.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be wondering what happened when all is said and done. Don't let your bewilderment undermine your efforts; think things through!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're going to have to part with someone today, whether or not you like it. You both have separate goals to reach and must move on.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to put in a little extra effort today in order to undo what someone else has done incorrectly. Don't point fingers!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The technical assistance you were expecting may not materialize today. You'll have to trust your instincts and experience.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- When you are asked what you are doing -- or, more importantly, why you are doing it -- you'll want to tell the truth and nothing but the truth.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must take the time to think through what you are facing before you are forced to make any decisions one way or the other.
