Born today, you are never particularly happy doing only what you are told or satisfying only the demands of those "in charge," but rather you want to be free to do what you are compelled to do, for whatever reason, and satisfy those needs and desires that spring from your very core. Of course, such an approach to life is not always possible, and there are even times in which it is not wholly advisable, so you will have to come up with a way to strike an effective and acceptable compromise between your own natural desires and the expectations and dictates of others.
You may learn that now and then there is joy to be had in satisfying the needs and wants of others -- and this will be particularly true for you in love and romance. Love is a giving proposition as far as you are concerned.
Also born on this date are: Selena Gomez, singer; David Spade, actor; Danny Glover, actor; Bobby Sherman, singer; Alex Trebek, game show host; A.J. Cook, actress; Don Henley, musician; Willem Dafoe, actor.

FRIDAY, JULY 23
CAPRRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're getting to the point where you won't need to ask others for instructions, directions or clarifications. You'll be on your own!
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're not going to react to routine things in routine ways today, simply because of a new personal variable that you haven't yet considered.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A matter of policy demands your close attention today. It may be time to make a change that affects all those doing business with you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have some trouble today keeping up with someone who is finding more joy in a current endeavor than you are. What's keeping you down?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Something that used to be as simple as one-two-three is likely to take up far more of your time and brainpower. This may require careful study.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're likely to learn more about yourself today than about any subject you may delve into -- especially if you follow where your instincts lead.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may find yourself putting off until tomorrow what you would have preferred to do today, simply because of a mixup in communication.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Information you receive from a trusted source may disappoint you today, leaving you with no other choice but to go in a different direction.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're eager to find out just what the impact of a certain decision might be -- but you're not likely to know for sure until you make it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are more than willing to do what you are told today -- but you must be sure that the instructions are clear. Ask questions!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Information you receive about an ongoing financial liability is likely to please you more than expected. You can begin to make new plans.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to wait for others to come through with their end of an arrangement today before you can swing into action. Don't be hasty!
