Aries (March 21-April 19): Be vigilant in protecting your freedom and autonomy. Don't let the noise of friends taint the development of something new.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): You may be the only one who understands you today, but don't take that as a negative omen. It means that you are either far ahead of your time or thinking on a deeper level than others.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): There is someone who dotes on you, and it's nice to know that you come first in this person's mind.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): Mercury's current transit has you feeling loose and lively, which will be more appropriate for some relationships than it is for others.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You have self-control when a relationship is proceeding nicely. But bumps in the road may cause you to seek external security.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You make sense of illogical and disparate ideas. The random thoughts a friend expresses will prove to have some semblance of order.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You take orders well and follow the rules as much as possible. Circumstances do arise from time to time that require immediate action.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You want to go where the sun is hot and the sunbathers are cool. There is work to be done before such leisure can easily happen.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are open and ready for new experiences. You will look back and know that you did something fantastic.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Fun is contagious. Unfortunately, it is equally subjective. What one person thinks is hilarious may fall flat with the next person.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You do not always feel generous with your resources, but if you have something to give, it doesn't feel good to hold it back.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You are a master of understatement. Do not let this tendency lead you into total silence.
Today's birthday (June 16): Dare to speak up about what you want. You have influence over others, and the better you get at expressing yourself the stronger this power becomes. Finances look bright in July. Travel happens in September and December. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 25, 12, 39 and 18.
