Born today, you always seem to reflect the world around you in some way, in your everyday behavior, in the work you do and in the decisions that propel you through life's journey. It is not so much that you are a product of the world in which you live -- which is, of course, rather commonplace -- but rather that who you are is a result of your constant reactions to that world, whether grand or minute, and it is by watching and assessing those reactions that others can get to know you at least a little.
Despite the fact that you are likely to enjoy remarkable success in life, both personally and professionally, it's likely that you will be haunted by ghosts that keep you from fully enjoying that success. Your challenge, then, is to keep those ghosts at bay as much as possible so that you don't succumb to irreversible frustration or sadness.
Also born on this date are: Ernest Hemingway, writer; Don Knotts, actor; Robin Williams, comedian and actor; Juno Temple, actress; Isaac Stern, violinist; Jon Lovitz, comedian and actor.

THURSDAY, JULY 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may find yourself waiting for someone to give you the go-ahead today when he or she is expecting you to take the initiative.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're going to want to take advantage of an unusual quirk in your own personal timing today in order to finish a once-and-done job.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may fear that you're falling behind in some way, but help from another keeps you competitive. You'll want to show thanks in a special way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A little bit of the showoff in you will find an outlet today -- but take care that you don't overindulge in this opportunity to shine.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your attention to one problem is likely to risk making another related problem worse -- so you're going to have to balance your approach today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can satisfy another's need for involvement today without stretching yourself too thin. You must make it clear that you have certain limits.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You cannot trust another to handle a certain situation without some oversight today -- but that may be trickier than just doing it yourself.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The time has come for you to turn plans into action, as there are those who aren't going to stick with you if you don't make a move very soon.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- If too much depends on things happening all on time and in a coordinated manner today, then progress will be stunted. Don't be so strict.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You should be able to give a friend or work partner a little more room to do things today in a way that differs slightly from your own.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not know how to address a certain situation that develops quickly and without your prior knowledge today. Get an expert opinion.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's a good time for you to replace that which is outdated and fix that which is broken. Your methods combine efficiency and effectiveness.
