HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, June 29, 2012: This year, curb “It’s my way or the highway” type of thinking. Move away from it, and you will gain. Understand that no one likes to be controlled. If single, do not fall for how someone seems to be. You are likely to attract someone who’s emotionally unavailable. If attached, schedule a couple of special weekends away together. Sometimes you could blurt out your inner thoughts, to your horror and others’ shock. Scorpio is provocative and alluring. A baby born today has a sun in Cancer and a moon in Scorpio all day long.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Close one-on-one conversations seem inevitable. You’ll get to root out several problems, as long as you do not trigger anyone in the process.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You could feel challenged when others are simply presenting a different perspective or opinion. Try not to react, and stay centered.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You cannot continue with such a heavy pace, because you are only human. Remember that. A partner hits you on all levels to get you to do something he or she wants.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You want to make a difference. Tap into your imagination. Just because an idea might not feel reasonable does not mean it is impossible.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • If you really want to stay home, do so. You will flourish in this environment. Screen your calls, as many demanding people seem to want your attention.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Your inquiries and overtures initially are met with a positive response, yet beneath the surface you could sense a resistance. You want what you want.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You have a way about you that makes all the difference. Listen to someone’s feedback, even if this person doesn’t come from the same mind-set as you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You smile, and someone responds. Your ability to understand others intellectually does not compare to your empathetic abilities.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Be aware that you might be more out of sorts than you realize. It is better to say less than to develop foot-in-mouth disease.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • A friendship means a lot to you, and despite some unanticipated developments, you will have an opportunity to show your caring.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You are full of smiles, as you attempt to see life differently. A boss or higher-up clearly is impressed with your ability to lead and with your diligence.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You want to move forward with a particular idea, but you must look at this concept more completely and be honest with yourself as to any problems with it.
