Born today, you are perhaps one of the most unusual and mysterious individuals born under your sign, and you go through life as if shrouded by something that obscures the "real you" from those you encounter. The question to ask yourself is this: Is this something that happens unintentionally, or is it the product of your will and something that you do for a concrete purpose? The fact is that you may not know the answer, as you are often merely driven this way and that by your own nature or the circumstances in which you may live at any given time.
You see no point in competing with others for dominance -- and this holds true in affairs of the heart as well. If you sense you have a rival in love, you are quick to yield the field and begin to turn your attentions elsewhere.

SUNDAY, JULY 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Pay attention to how your mind and body are connected today. The messages sent from one to the other and back again tell you much about yourself!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- That which others swear by isn't likely to be worth your time or attention -- especially today, when you're juggling so much at once.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You feel quite strongly that you are on the right track today, even though someone who knows you quite well expresses doubts. Talk it out.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your day is likely to be complicated by much that is beyond your control. Still, you can remain in the driver's seat and avoid obstacles.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your priorities may be getting jumbled at this time, and you cannot afford to approach what lies ahead in a confused state. Get things in order!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can afford to approach a certain challenge with a bit more attitude. Remember, the battle can be won before any blows are struck.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be compelled to mount a challenge against one who is recognized to be the best at what he or she does. Are you sure you're ready?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The working relationship you maintain with someone whose methods are very different from your own can provide you with a rare gift today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You needn't reveal all your secrets today; sure, there are those who want to know what you're all about, but let them find out over time!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- As you face a certain obstacle today, you're likely to be given a rare glimpse of yourself from an unusual angle. Do you like what you see?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will be better for all that happens to you today, though you may not like much of it as it occurs. Some lessons are learned slowly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The commitment you've made to another is based more on practicality than on any emotional affinity. Keep things strictly business!
