TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 26). Go into this solar journey with a passionate flame in your heart. The next two months are a blur as you share excitement and ignite the spark in others. You’ll soon have a whole team helping to make your vision come to life. November brings something remarkable home from your travels. Virgo and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 40, 23, 14 and 49.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The rivalry going on may not be your own, but it matters to some people you love. Emotions are high. Alliances are drawn. You may root for someone despite your best intentions.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ve picked up wisdom as well as pithy sayings, fun jokes and interesting anecdotes. You’ll make friends and do well in business.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Simple patience looks like waiting around, but it’s not the same thing as inaction. Patience is an inner stance, accept the circumstance, look for the best.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Group situations can bring out the best in everyone, or cause people to relax into the illusion of safety in numbers. You can’t help but influence the next person.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The drive to create fun is important and the priority of the day. Bits of life turned into humor will make life sweeter.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Good ideas don’t take hold any faster just because they are good. Any idea at all must be exposed several times before it’s adopted. Present the option again. Help people, but it could take a while.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). History has its own recipe. The truth gets mixed in with needs and wants of those relaying the story. A mythology slowly forms as facts change.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your imagination is going strong, and you may not be sure whether to correct or assist it. Much depends on the direction your thoughts are flowing. Happiness depends on imagining in a good direction.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). To be satisfied or discontented with oneself is more a matter of decision than of reality. Self-esteem is nothing more than a judgment you make, and you can change your mind about it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Truths are often half-spoken. It’s like we know how potent the truth is, and therefore, the first form it comes to us in is usually a whisper or a hint.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s the same with people and machines — you have to first learn what buttons to push, then it will be obvious what to do and what to avoid doing.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your tenacity of purpose is strongest when you know you’re right. It would be nice if such were an innate feeling, it’s not. Check, question and doubt to realize what is right.
