HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, June 27, 2012: This year you will work through certain issues, as well as your changing perspective about money. Stay true to you. Win control games by not playing. If single, a significant person to your life history knocks on your door sometime around your next birthday. If attached, heal your relationship’s wounds through more intense one-on-one time. Libra has a way of creating tension within you. A baby born today has a sun in Cancer and a moon in Libra all day long.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Someone tests your commitment to a concept or project. Though you might respond with a strong answer, take a second look to see where there is room for improvement.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Maintain a sense of direction, no matter what. You could be exhausted and tired, especially if you encounter a difficult situation or person.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Let your creativity flourish, and allow greater give-and-take. A loved one could be testing your limits to see your reaction.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Go back to basics rather than struggle with an existing situation. You could feel as if you pushed too far with an important partner
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Make an effort to get to the bottom of a problem. A superficial bandage might work for the moment, but not in the long run. Listen to your instincts with a difficult associate.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Allow greater creativity to flow between you and someone else. Sometimes you can be overwhelmed by how demanding a loved one could be.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Honor what is happening within your immediate circle. Give yourself some space from a controlling individual, and you will feel much better; nearly everywhere else you are appreciated.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Pull back if you keep hitting an impasse. You do not need to do/say something over and over to convince someone of how right you are.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Focus on the possibilities, especially those involving a friendship and/or a long-term objective. Caring will be expressed at the appropriate moment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Others appreciate your efforts. Take a stand for what you believe is right. Remember that what feels right for you often might not be so for others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You might feel quite huffy and/or controlling, but detaching to take a view of the big picture is worth it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Deal with people on an individual level right now. You could be overwhelmed in a meeting and unable to present your ideas with the same power.
