Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For July 16, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The "official" rules and regulations seem devised to stand in your way, but you're taking personally something that is entirely random.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are playing an important role at this time, but not everyone understands what you have to gain by doing so. You can explain!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can surely be remembered for what you do today, but you must be sure it is for all the right reasons. You want to be famous, not infamous.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may feel your self-control slipping away as the day progresses, but you must do all you can to keep yourself from lashing out.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have been making many small changes lately, and not everyone is going to be supportive. It's time to deal with the naysayers.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to weigh your chances with great care today before putting a new plan in motion. Your critics are silenced by day's end, however.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You've been trying to reach someone whose attention has been elsewhere -- but that's likely to change today. Your skills make a statement.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- How you get along with teammates and rivals will make all the difference today. You don't want to be forced to behave out of character.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can win now, or you can win later -- but "later" brings with it one or two additional gains. This decision will be tough to make.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll want to listen to someone who is eager to share all he or she knows about this, that or the other thing. You'll learn something!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to step in and separate conflicting parties today. Use care, and do all you can to keep yourself and your teammates safe.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- An early start yields results almost immediately, but that doesn't mean you'll be ahead of the game all day long. You can expect a delay.
