Born today, you are not always one to play by the rules, and when it comes to traditional roles -- especially those defined by gender -- you are likely to cast off any expectations or rules and go it alone into new territory that provides the kind of inspiration, excitement and confirmation of "self" that you are always looking for. This doesn't mean you cannot be happy doing ordinary things with ordinary people!
At some point in your life you may want to back off and settle down for a time. It could be that you sense a danger ahead and wish not to expose yourself or someone else to it at that time. When your instincts speak to you in this way, you must listen, and know that there will come a time later for you to tackle the given challenge.
Also born on this date are: Jennifer Lopez, singer and actress; Amelia Earhart, pioneer aviator; Kristin Chenoweth, actress; Anna Paquin, actress; Lynda Carter, actress; Barry Bonds, baseball player; Rose Byrne, actress.

SATURDAY, JULY 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Others may not be able to make sense of certain developments today, but what you make of them helps you formulate a solid new plan of action.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What you want and what you need converge today in a most productive way -- and you'll be surprised when you receive approval for a new scheme.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Temptation may prove too much for you today, which only means that you're going to have to double down on a past commitment come day's end.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Recurrent themes and phrases have you thinking of something today that hasn't been in your mind for quite some time. What's afoot?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have less to do today than you may think -- but that's only counting hands-on activities. Your management duties are many, of course.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept 22) -- You must face more than your share of "slings and arrows" today -- but once you survive the first barrage, you can consider yourself home free.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The back and forth between you and a rival heats up some today, but you mustn't let things take on a more serious tone than they already have.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Oct. 22) -- It's easier than you think to get in touch with someone from afar in order to collect the information you need today. Choose your method!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- After laying the groundwork for quite some time, you can finally do the one thing that gives you a lasting advantage over a rival.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A figure from your past reappears today -- if not in person, then virtually. You once more have to deal with a long-forgotten issue.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- An idea begins to take shape today that previously was nothing more than a bunch of disparate notions. You now see where this is headed.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You receive a shock today that has you questioning much that you thought was certain. This can be a good thing every now and then, surely.
