HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, June 24, 2010: This year, focus on your daily life, personal habits and work. If single, someone special enters your life. Remain confident. If attached, the two of you tend to indulge each other a lot. You will be happiest not planning any big trips, but just hanging out together. Sagittarius gets the job done.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Don’t allow grouchiness in the early a.m. to mar what could be an excellent day. Attempt to detach through a walk or whatever works for you. Fatigue also adds to your mood.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • A partner or associate wants to hear more of what you think. This person could try to trigger you to spill the beans. Are you going to let him or her do this?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Others approach you in a very challenging manner. Your ability to understand what could be a very vague suggestion plays out. News from a distance could be confusing.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Someone could be distorting the big picture. Understand that this is this person’s perspective, and some facts could be left out. Be willing to ask questions, and note what is left out.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Your fiery spirit comes out. The Lion is prone to excess more than any other sign, and you just might indulge. Ask yourself if you can afford the damages.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Pressure builds with a personal matter. You could flare up early in the morning. As a result, you will be doing the kiss-and-make-up dance. Don’t make anything heavier than it needs to be.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Often, you keep your feelings in, causing enormous problems for yourself and sometimes others. You could blow up at someone who doesn’t deserve your anger.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Be aware of the costs of a friendship. You might express anger and explain your feelings, but it is unlikely that you will be heard. A money matter needs close monitoring.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Just when you think you are on cruise control, you discover otherwise. You might keep tripping if you take a situation for granted.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • Know when to turn the other way. You might not like what you hear. Consider your options more carefully, though others might try to stop the process. You might wonder what is next.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Make sure to go to an important meeting. Someone you care about most could distract you. This person alternates between being stern, depressed and angry.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Take a stand, and be willing to take action to back up this stance. You might wonder about someone in your life who is negative, tired or angry.
