Born today, you know how to make the best of virtually any situation, whether you are collaborating with others or working entirely on your own. You don't really have a preference here, either; you are just as content being a part of a carefully integrated team as being a solo act, as it's not the method that inspires you and pulls from you the best, but rather the intention and goal itself. If you're working for something you deem essential to you or to others, you will work hard to reach that goal; if not, you are better off moving on to something else that is essential.
You never want others to doubt your sincerity, and so everything you do and everything you say is well-intended, well-formed and well-founded.
Also born on this date are: Daniel Radcliffe, actor; Slash, guitarist; Woody Harrelson, actor; Marlon Wayans, actor; Philip Seymour Hoffman, actor; Stephanie Seymour, model; Alison Krauss, singer; Raymond Chandler, author.
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.
FRIDAY, JULY 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's not like you to let a certain someone have something for nothing, but today that's the best plan. Your generosity will be requited.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's time for you to get used to a new reality that has been introduced to you by one who knows you better, perhaps, than you know yourself.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you are able to do depends in large part upon the skills of those who are helping you. Have you let them know what is really necessary?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- An issue of safety is likely to arise today at a most unexpected time. Things are different, however, and a new approach is required.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Is it your attitude that keeps you from getting what you want today, or is it your actions? Examine both, and the answer will soon become clear.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you give up today, you'll surely fall hopelessly behind the competition. Stick with it, and you may not win, but you'll surely be in the race.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- That which at face value seems lacking may, upon further study, be just what you are after. Not everything will be revealed at first glance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- There are plenty of ways for you to get the word out, but you don't want to reveal too much too soon. Some things are best kept under wraps.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- That which you thought was no good to you may, today, be just what the doctor ordered. You learn that not everything becomes obsolete!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll have every reason to remind those working with you that there are certain rules to be followed -- even if they don't come naturally.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- This is not a good time for fantasies. Today you must be willing to deal with hard facts and realities that may not be the most attractive.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may suspect that someone is trying to take advantage of you at this time, but don't rush to judgment. More evidence comes your way.
