Born today, you are one of those rare and fascinating individuals who doesn't seem to fit any one mold at all, but in fact can fit into many, seemingly all at once, so varied is your character. To sum things up neatly and simply, you are both light and dark, both good and bad, both creative and destructive. Which rises to dominance at any given time depends on the circumstances in which you find yourself as well as the mood you may be in and the people with whom you are interacting.
Your emotional well-being is essential to your progress, for if you are feeling emotionally unwell, you are likely to take it out on everyone around you -- without ever pointing the finger of blame at yourself, of course. When emotionally healthy, however, you can do almost anything you choose.
Also born on this date are: Martina McBride, singer; Jason Belmonte, professional bowler; Wil Wheaton, actor; Tim Gunn, TV personality; Clara Bow, actress; Peter Jennings, newsman.

FRIDAY, JULY 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A quick fix isn't likely to be that at all -- and yet there's something in what you're trying to do that makes sense and can pay off.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are seeking progress in a way that others may not be ready or able to, and this sends a message about who you are and what you're up to.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're in no mood to mess around today, and others will be right there with you. It's a good time to ask for precisely what you most want.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Something passes into memory today even as something else makes itself available to you. Both will be important to you in the days to come.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Now is not the time to hold back when it comes to expressing your appreciation for someone. What you say and do will be remembered.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's likely to take you longer to do the right thing today than it will to do something you know is wrong -- but you have no choice!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The more you try to butter someone up, the more likely it is that you will be found out -- and you want to be the one to point out your faults.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- No matter your planning, it's likely you will forget something that is actually essential. You can give someone a solid piece of advice.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You've entered the last phase of a "countdown" of sorts, and you only have enough time to deal with the last essential details.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can do some timely repair work today, but take care that you don't start trying to do some things that are above your pay grade.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll find yourself going down memory lane more than once today -- and one of those trips is likely to teach you something valuable.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be dealing with someone reputable, but the fact of the matter is that what is offered isn't really up your alley. Choose again!
