Your Birthday For July 17, 2020

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Trust your feelings today, and don't let yourself overthink things that are much more basic than they appear. Get to the heart of the matter.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- One who knows you well is willing to make a personal sacrifice in order to help you with something you must get done before this day is out.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The question of how to proceed today is best answered once you've studied the lay of the land. You must not repeat a mistake.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Only you will know when you're ready to take that next dramatic step forward -- and it may be as early as today or tomorrow. Destiny calls!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have a chance to transform the status quo into something that is truly exciting to everyone around you today. This change is long overdue.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Now is no time to be superstitious; feel free to talk about the things that are on your mind without thinking you're tempting fate.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not be quite as focused as you should be -- but it's likely the stars will be forgiving if you pledge to get back on track tomorrow.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone makes a promise that will benefit you greatly today -- if it is kept. You must resist the temptation to check up on him or her.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's a good day to offer help to one who is in a situation you recognize quite well. He or she has much on the line; you can secure a victory.
