Born today, you approach things carefully, thoughtfully and comprehensively. You don't like leaving anything to chance, and yet chance itself -- or "the stars," if you're so inclined -- is likely to have a great deal to do with your progress through life, the opportunities you encounter and the successes or failures you experience.
You are likely to dedicate your life to some highly unusual endeavors, but you have a way of surrounding yourself with all that is able to keep you grounded and safe. When it comes to people, places and things, you enjoy and appreciate the familiar, and derive great strength from that which is common and comfortable -- even as you explore that which is new and perhaps frightening.
Also born on this date are: Sir Edmund Hillary, mountaineer; Francesco Petrarch, poet; Carlos Santana, musician; Natalie Wood, actress; Omar Epps, actor; Sandra Oh, actress.

TUESDAY, JULY 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A chance encounter starts the wheels turning of something that you're not going to be able to stop even if you wanted to. And you won't want to!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There's more to the niceties between people today than meets the eye. Watch closely, and you'll learn what drives certain negotiations.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be able to use some sleight of hand today to change the minds of those who haven't yet believed what you've done in the past.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have quite a story to tell today, but not everyone is going to take you at your word. Arm yourself with proof before uttering a thing.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Something rather exotic is likely to attract your attention today, but you may fear getting personally involved in something new at this time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today may be the last chance you'll have for quite some time to do for a friend what he or she did for you not so long ago.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're likely to get much better acquainted with someone's way of doing things today -- and soon you may adopt those methods as your own.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be put in charge of a project today that has not yet received the official stamp of approval. Your involvement is a big plus.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A request is made of you today that you're more likely to fulfill if you know the motives of the one making it. Ask necessary questions.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A trip down memory lane does more for you today than you might expect. A new idea will begin tumbling around in your mind very soon.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have more going for you today than you might think. You'll want to take advantage of an unusual opportunity after nightfall.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Getting from here to there is no problem today, but getting back again may be fraught with peril -- if you don't make a solid plan ahead of time.
