Born today, you tend to be rather solitary, and you are likely to be known for your natural reticence. You don't like small talk, rumor or innuendo; when you choose to communicate with others, whether for personal or professional reasons, you do so in a direct and businesslike manner and get to the point in no time at all. You are likely to surround yourself with a few loyal and loving friends and steer clear of those whom you suspect would do anything to further their agendas without respecting your own.
You are quite attractive to others -- but not necessarily in a way that could be considered traditional or "classic." Indeed, there is perhaps something quite unusual about either your appearance or your manner that attracts a great deal of attention and admiration.
Also born on this date are: Queen Elizabeth II of England; Tony Romo, football player; James McAvoy, actor; Iggy Pop, singer; Tony Danza, actor; Charlotte Bronte, author; Andie MacDowell, actress; Anthony Quinn, actor; John Muir, naturalist.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be able to assess someone's true intentions today, but you can certainly deal with the effects of his or her actions.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A game of hide-and-seek results in much more than you may have bargained for, as something valuable is gained while something else is lost.
