Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For July 17, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can be anything you want to be, as long as you take the time to fully prepare and equip yourself with all the right tools.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Agreement is not the be-all and end-all today, but debate can surely improve everyone's awareness of certain key issues. Lead the discussion.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You shouldn't have to give up on a dream today. Do what you can to further your plans, and someone else will benefit as well. Stay on schedule.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A decision made early in the day pays off quite handsomely. If you are forced to delay, however, there may be a heavy price to pay.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You know just what has to be done today, and you're ready to do it. Someone reminds you that something else must be accomplished simultaneously.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Certain pressures mount today, but you can take everything in stride -- provided you are not pushed out of your comfort zone by a rival.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- How you view a coming trial will make all the difference today; you'll want to remain positive, confident and forward-thinking at all times.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You mustn't let anyone tell you you're not doing something for the right reasons. You are, though you may be the only one who knows it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Travel is in the picture, but you may be heading off in a direction that is quite different from the one you had originally planned.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- All manner of influences keep you from doing something the way you had anticipated. Still, you can get it done on time and under budget.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may adopt one or two very unusual methods today, but they are likely to prove more effective because you are the one employing them.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be surprised at how fast things happen all around you today. You can keep up, surely, but you may have to make one small sacrifice.
