Happy birthday. You’ll deliberately put yourself in opportune situations, and the busyness of the next four months will have the feeling of catching your life on the fly. June brings a stretch of self-reflection.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): There’s a fine line between expressing your own individuality and rejecting the group culture of those around you.

Put the group culture first and you’ll have no trouble finding windows of opportunity to be unique.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You like to concentrate on what needs to be done and can’t see the point of dwelling on what you’ve accomplished. It’s necessary to compartmentalize the past, but don’t forget it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): It’s natural to leave the door of your heart open around loved ones. Being emotionally vulnerable is not always best for your relationships.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Your neighborhood is only as good as your neighbors.Taking care of those who live around you will be part of today’s work and in doing this, you’ll be improving the domestic life of many.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Misinformation will provide a test of your inner guidance system.You are not likely to believe something just because it’s what you’re asked to believe.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Flexibility is not one of your main strengths and yet, you will be willing to do whatever it takes to help your plans bear fruit.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You have one style of doing things, and someone close to you has a completely different approach. The two styles may clash, and someone will have to back down.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Your love takes work now, and your work takes love. It feels so worthwhile, though, as today’s project will provide you with excitement on par with romantic rapture.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You strive to be self-sufficient emotionally, financially and physically. It allows you to say “no” and “yes” to whomever you want.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You are now doing the work that once seemed so beyond your capabilities. Backing out was never an option for you, and now you will benefit from your perseverance.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll enjoy the challenge of being a stranger in a new land for a few hours today, and this experience will teach you something about your confidence.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Thinking ahead is your talent. You’ve witnessed the kinds of difficulties and delays that are caused by a lack of preparation, and you’re determined to do everything you can to get ready for what’s to come.
