HOROSCOPE

While choosing a career path is always difficult, your mixture of practicality and compassion open up a variety of successful career choices. If the politics are your ambition, you may be well suited for office on the community level of higher, very similarly to John Quincy Adams, who was also born on July 11th. While business could also be satisfying, your creative inclinations may make a career in the arts ideal. If so, look to the work of iconic actor Yul Brynner, another of your birthday twins, for inspiration.
