Born today, you are always the one to be first in line when an opportunity presents itself, and you will spend your time waiting for things to get started by thinking and pondering and planning -- so that, in turn, when the time comes, you make all the right moves that, in effect, guarantee your eventual success. You were born to do business, all kinds of business, and you are most at home in any environment that allows you to put your always well-crafted plans into motion -- for yourself, or for others.
As far as you are concerned, there is no place for sentiment in the world of business, for sentiment can only steer you wrong and lead to erroneous decision-making. So what are you to do with all those emotions that regularly bubble to the surface? Channel them very carefully, of course, and only at the right times and in the right places -- and around the right people, too.
Also born on this date are: Henry Ford, auto pioneer; Lisa Kudrow, actress; Vivica A. Fox, actress; Christopher Nolan, director; Hilary Swank, actress; Emily Bronte, author.

SATURDAY, JULY 31
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- As you look around to determine what fits and what doesn't, you may be struck by a certain revelation that has you changing some plans.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is not the time to throw more money into a project that simply isn't coming together. Indeed, it may be time to suspend it altogether.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Show another what you're up to, but don't reveal every single detail. You don't want to give up the element of surprise entirely, do you?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The same old thing isn't likely to affect you in the same old way today; you must be prepared for something different. This is significant.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're likely to encounter something unusual today that actually serves to get you in the mood for something that is indirectly related.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll have something of a blank canvas to work with today, and what you come up with may surprise even you. You may be setting a trend!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The ordinary is anything but ordinary today, if you take the time to look more closely than usual. Some details prove quite surprising.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may not be responsible for a slowdown today, but you're surely going to have to deal with it head-on. Some things will be hard to say.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Pay close attention to any and all instructions today; you may learn that your approach to a certain problem has not been well designed.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll be concerned with profitability throughout this busy day. You must be sure that you're getting the maximum bang for your buck, too!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Money matters are in the spotlight, but you're not in a position to do what others are doing, perhaps. You can find a new way to get ahead.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's a good day for you to put more effort into an endeavor that will likely put you where you want to be eventually. Still, you must be patient.
