For Thursday, July 26
Those with birthdays today: This year you often feel challenged by those you care about most. Take what you hear with a grain of salt. Your creativity and ingenuity come into play as you attempt to defy certain precepts or understand more of what is going on. You have been serious if not demanding, wanting more from your life. If you are single, you have many admirers. Do you really want to remain the lonely Lion? You have a choice. If you are attached, you will enter a new, romantic phase of this bond. SAGITTARIUS always encourages you to take the next step - be it a project, situation or relationship.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
