Born today, you are far more solitary in nature than your seemingly sociable demeanor can reveal, and despite the fact that you can, as they say, "work and play well with others," the truth is that you prefer your own company, or at least the company of a precious few individuals, to that of any group of people -- even those who share your outlook, beliefs and ambitions. You do not like to talk about the things that are most important to you.
What does matter, of course, is that you are allowed to go about your business unchallenged in any way -- but that's not likely to happen as long as you say and do things that rub others the wrong way. And that, really, is your greatest challenge -- determining when it is appropriate to say and do things that are uniquely "you."
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.

SATURDAY, JULY 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What is it that someone has that you don't? That's the question you'll be asking all day -- and the answer is right in front of you!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll be able to do more than planned today even though you may think you have less to work with. Your talent for multitasking pays off.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're desperate for a creative outlet, and today it's likely to come to you after an unexpected encounter. You're open for almost anything!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can solve a problem for someone today, but that problem you've been facing yourself will still stand. Someone else holds the key.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can recover from a false start today, but you're likely to be watched more closely because you made it in the first place. Be extra careful!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Early activity will yield more fruit today than anything you start later in the day. Energy ebbs and flows with greater irregularity right now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A new friend offers more than a new experience; you'll find yourself immersed in a situation that can bring out your best very soon indeed.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Set goals for yourself today and be sure you meet them. You're not likely to progress if you don't approach your work logically.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're eager to let someone see what you've been up to -- but who? That answer will be clear to you once you've given a certain "test."
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Questions and answers will not seem to be closely related today, but if you take the time to put them together, a clear picture will emerge.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Care for others is tantamount to self-care today. You want to put yourself in a position in which you can make one or two key decisions.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The new and untried is quite attractive to you today, but someone who knows you quite well is likely to warn you against branching out.
