HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, June 16, 2013: This year you often send out mixed signals without intending to. You might want to relax more, yet you will make a fuss when people make a mistake. If single, and you’re seeking a partner, this behavior could push others away. If attached, you will hear about your critical manner. Try accepting yourself and your significant other. Neither of you is perfect. Libra can be very romantic. A baby born today has a sun in Gemini and a moon in Virgo if born before 6:19 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Libra.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Make today a day of rest. Leave work to other days. Invite a friend to join you in a fun outdoor pastime. Whether it’s a ballgame or something else makes no difference.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Plan a day with a favorite loved one. It might seem as if you cannot get enough time with each other. Do not worry so much about everything being perfect.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • You might be more comfortable at home than out and about. The good news is that this situation is about to change. Communication flourishes, at least on the phone.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Schedule some one-on-one time with a child or loved one. You could take a trip to the zoo or share a different experience of a similar nature.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Take the day to rest, pay bills, read the paper. Make plans for late in the day. You could enjoy a movie with friends and perhaps grab some dinner afterward to discuss it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You could be in a position in which others are taking their cues from you. Be aware of what you are doing. At times you might be a little too carefree.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You might want to mellow out and postpone plans for as late in the day as you can. You might want to catch up on others’ news.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Get back to the basics with friends. Do make a point of encouraging a brunch where everyone can catch up on each other’s news.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Make plans to spend the day with an older relative. You can’t replace this person’s wisdom; he or she knows more than you do.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You could hear some news that makes you want to meet a friend halfway. Make the call, but choose a new place to meet this person; you’ll like the change of pace.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • You will not deny yourself the pleasure of spending time with someone you really care about. In fact, make some personal time with this person a priority.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You have many offers and invitations, yet you might have other plans that you want to follow through on. Just go with the flow of the situation.
