HOROSCOPES

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 25). This year is a magical crossing. You start out in one territory and end up in an altogether foreign realm, changed. There’s an August priority shift, brought on by a period of greater financial ease. You’ll change your style and enjoy relating to a new group. Family success will be a rising tide that carries all boats. Libra, Aries adore. Lucky numbers are: 8, 3, 19, 20 and 4.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know how to hook up to the internal well of peace within your being. Not everyone has this knowledge. Be patient with those who have yet to find serenity within as they pursue external validation.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To listen well is to give a gift. The tricky part comes when your knowledge of how well you were listening gets tested. It feels as though all hard-won trust is hanging in the balance of one right answer.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are constantly updating your skills. In fact, it’s become such a regular that you don’t give much thought to the fact that you’re learning. Learning is your way of life.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You care deeply about what you’re presenting to the world today. Purpose matters. Sometimes you dress for your own pleasure, and sometimes for your group.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll make it about the other person, not because it’s generous or friendly, but because it’s the smartest way to get what you want. Everything is a trade. Find out what the other person would like to get out of it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What you have is perfectly suited to solving another’s problem. Effort is better spent finding that person with whom you share compatible needs than trying to change yourself for someone who’s a bad fit.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You see yourself as an adviser who wants to help. From this position, you can go so many more places than a person who’s only on a mission to fulfill his or her own agenda.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A single cloud can hide the whole of the sun. One wrong or unhelpful thought could be the equivalent of a cloud. Recognize dark ideas. Flood them with light or entreat the winds of change to blow them away.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll do well to choose your mode and stick with it, as today is all about establishing trust. People will appreciate knowing what to expect from you. Settle into a tone, and then play it through to the end.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s not difficult to convince you to do a good deed. You feel quite acutely the need to serve and be helpful. Just be careful to give to people who need it instead of people who just enjoy the feeling of being served.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you dedicate time and attention to self-care, it’s not really for vanity’s sake. When you look good, you make everyone you associate with look good, too.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No one else can tell you what beauty is, though many try. You’ll be bombarded with images that suggest that one way is preferred and other ways are out. Don’t believe them. Trust your own eyes and heart.
