Born today, you always seem to be at least one step ahead of the crowd, no matter what you may be doing or what project you may be working on -- and it's likely that you will reach the finish line first on many important occasions. You'll be recognized for your fearless pursuit of all that is new and untried; you are obsessed with the idea that anything you can think of can be made real -- and in most cases you will prove that you're correct.
Though you project a great deal of personal strength, you can at times be quite vulnerable -- mostly when you are around friends and loved ones. They know you as one who is as susceptible to emotional injury as anyone else, and they are always there to support you when you need it. You are defined in part by a deep sensitivity to beauty.

FRIDAY, JULY 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be surprised at how many people are hanging on to your every word today. The question is: Do you have something valuable to say?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can start the day in a routine manner, but later you'll have to adjust very quickly to a dangerous, rapidly developing situation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's a good day to do things around the home that give you and yours a real sense of harmony. You must do all you can to avoid real arguments.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You mustn't take a minor upset too much to heart. Someone you know well is going through something more serious at this time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your relationships will almost certainly be affected today by a chance encounter -- and what you do immediately after. Surprises are in store.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have more than one decision to make today, and the alternatives presented to you at this time make you the envy of many. Would you agree?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Those at cross-purposes today will almost surely find their work harder than it should be; those in agreement have an easy time of it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Someone is waiting for you to chime in and share your opinion about a group effort that must soon be submitted to someone in charge.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your contribution is deemed essential today, and you'll be given the go-ahead to delve into unknown territory to see what you can find.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must make use of every free moment today; you have much to do -- and your reputation is on the line, whether or not you know it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone may submit a piece of work to you today for assessment -- but you are in no mood to pass judgment. Still, your opinion matters.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must spend more time setting things up "just so" today before you put anything into motion. Jumping the gun exposes you to danger.
