BIRTHDAY GUY: Actor Ryan McPartlin was born in Chicago, Ill., on this day in 1975. This birthday guy currently plays Carter Covington on "Hart of Dixie," though he may be better known for his portrayal of Devon "Captain Awesome" Woodcomb on "Chuck." He's also appeared on episodes of "I Hate My Teenage Daughter," "Necessary Roughness" and "Rizzoli and Isles." His film work includes "The Right Kind of Wrong" and "J. Edgar."
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Drive rings around everyone else by being an innovator. Friends can inspire you to consider home improvements or donate time to a worthy charity. You might learn how to recycle something you usually throw away.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Might doesn't always make right. Someone could throw their weight around, but you don't have to react. You may need to do some serious soul searching to decide on the most ethical course of action.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Rein in your greed. Funds you invest today could do a disappearing act, so wait for better timing to try to turn a profit. Misunderstandings are possible so avoid confrontations or initiating any major undertakings.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take pride in your passions. Some things are falling in place and by pushing very hard you can make at least one important dream a reality. By pushing too hard, however, some relationships could break apart.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone could be so riveted on a project that you feel left out in the cold. Keep yourself busy and don't be so thin-skinned. Plan to spend quality holiday time with loved ones when a more relaxed pace guarantees harmony.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A little effort can pay off in big ways. You might not feel like you're in the driver's seat, but on a subconscious level you know you're doing exactly the things that will bring you the biggest benefit in the long run.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): All your sweetness and light could hit a sour note. Someone could be determined to win at all costs and turn the tables on you. Wait out a brief period of turbulence before making irrevocable changes and decisions.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may be pushing hard now to achieve goals and willing to expend extra energy to fulfill your ambitions. It may be best to wait a few days if you need to ask for help from key associates. Work independently.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A fool and his money are soon parted, with the emphasis on "soon." Take your time about making crucial financial decisions and delay major purchases. Don't let anyone provoke you into action without careful forethought.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You're fixated right now, so this isn't the time to start a new hobby or project, or to be demanding with friends and family. Fourth of July celebrations might interrupt your work flow.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Heightened ambitions might grab hold. Some people may expect you to be more businesslike. Streamline your schedule so you have fewer responsibilities and concerns. It's important to maintain a pleasant working environment.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Use your powers of visualization. Mentally picture the way you'd like your life to be, then follow through. You'll make the best impression on others in group settings.
IF JULY 3 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: In the upcoming 6-8 weeks you may adopt a more ambitious and results-driven attitude. Now, and again in late October, you may be so focused on getting ahead that you bulldoze over the objections and sensitivities of others. Partners or loved ones could be put off by your ruthless determination. You could find key relationships difficult to sustain. Late August and early September is the best time to make crucial decisions about your job and money. That said, this is not a good time period to open your own business or put all of your resources on the line. Don't get carried away by wild enthusiasms in early November. You'll be in a much better position to make plans later in the month, and in early December.
