Born today, you are one of the most even-keeled individuals born under your sign, as you are almost always calm, controlled, rational and realistic in your views about yourself and the world around you. You are never a slave to your own passions, and you have a calming influence over those around you -- particularly those who know you well and who seek out your company. There may be those who think that you do not hold yourself in high regard because you do not boast, brag or otherwise toot your own horn. This is a mistake, of course, for you are proud and content with who you are.
You believe that everyone has a right to his or her opinion. You can be close friends with one who disagrees with you, and a bitter enemy to one whose principles are aligned with your own. You believe friendship is a product of personality.
Also born on this date are: Jennifer Lopez, singer and actress; Amelia Earhart, pioneer aviator; Kristin Chenoweth, actress; Anna Paquin, actress; Lynda Carter, actress; Barry Bonds, baseball player; Rose Byrne, actress.

THURSDAY, JULY 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to wait for someone else to do his or her part today before you can finally put the finishing touches on a long-term project.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's important for you to reveal only what others need to know in order to progress today. The rest can remain under wraps -- for a time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you are doing requires a little more from you than usual. Today you are likely to be put to the test, from which you can benefit greatly.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are eager to share what you've discovered with someone close to you -- but you suspect that he or she may not react all that favorably.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Now is no time to point fingers and fix blame; rather, you will want to solve the problem at hand and move forward as quickly as possible.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've been assigned a task that must be completed before the day is out. It's likely that you will have to move something else to a back burner.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Others may accuse you of overindulgence, but today you want to give yourself a little more of what you've been enjoying for some time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can weather a coming storm, but you'll have to expend a great deal of energy to protect yourself from a threat to your emotional stability.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be facing a deadline today; do what you can as early as possible, and make room for any additional tasks that come your way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be moving away from something that has been a comfort to you for quite some time. This change can strengthen your resolve.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll get the upper hand today, but is that really the end of it? Chances are, you'll have to continue playing the game for some time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can rely on the tried and true to see you through today. Why experiment with unfamiliar methods when you know what works for you?
