Born today, you are nothing if not outspoken and bold. Though your penchant for insisting on being heard may get you into trouble with others from an early age, it will also secure your place in the hearts and minds of those you encounter later in life who look upon you as a role model. You are an original, confident and diligent visionary who will work tirelessly to ensure that what you see in your mind's eye doesn't vanish there.
You may never be first, but so long as you are not last, you will be happy. Indeed, being second often inspires you to work harder than you might otherwise, and thereby achieve things not thought of by others. You succeed because you will yourself to do so -- and that is true in all aspects of your life, including love.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Communication must remain open all day long, and it'll fall to you to ensure all parties are available. You know what you're doing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You don't want to make a target of yourself, so steer clear of those who are in a critical mood. You must make a decision sometime after dark.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone in charge thinks he or she knows how you should occupy your time, but this is likely to result in a difference of opinion, surely.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- How you interpret signals that come your way today will make all the difference -- not to you so much perhaps, but to another you know quite well.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll see what's approaching before anyone else -- but that doesn't mean you should take any action just yet. Wait and see what happens.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you know and what you think you know must be sorted out today before you do anything that is irreversible. A friend has a suggestion.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be waiting for something that you're not likely to recognize when it comes your way; you must pay attention to all warnings.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The difference between a policy and strategy is highlighted today -- and you'll be caught between the right and the wrong approach. Decide!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What you do is neither good nor bad, though some may want to label your efforts to suit their own agenda. Try to avoid a knee-jerk reaction.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must try to determine which way the wind is blowing today before doing something risky. What's happening behind you?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have a knack for knowing what someone will do before he or she does it -- and it's something that will serve you well all day long.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It'll fall to you to keep things organized today -- but your definition of "organized" might differ from that of another. Don't ruffle feathers!
