Born today, you are an original thinker, but you're not always the first one to decide to do something when something needs to be done. The problem? You have difficulty at times translating thought into efficient and effective action. You come up with one good idea after another, surely, but you may rely on others, more often than not, to put those ideas into motion. Only when your back is against the wall -- or you are compelled to react to circumstances in some other way -- are you likely to step out of your comfort zone and follow up quick and thorough thinking with the kind of action it deserves.
You are not an imposing figure, but you have a way of presenting yourself on social and professional occasions in such a way that you're sure to be remembered, and you are able to change the energy in a room quite dramatically just by walking into it.
Also born on this date are: Jessica Alba, actress; Jay Leno, comedian and late-night host; Penelope Cruz, actress; Ann-Margret, actress; James Monroe, U.S. president; Mary McDonnell, actress.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will be able to identify nearly all threats and challenges today -- but one may escape your notice until you are nearly on top of it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may feel as though you are less prepared than those around you today, but you have one particular advantage that will enable you to win the day.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You must resist the temptation to judge another's performance today. Instead, focus on doing your best as circumstances shift and change.
