Saturn, Venus and Mercury bring the cosmic luck to activities involving teamwork, learning, striving and competing at the levels that will challenge without crossing into terribly stressful territory. A bubbly, social rhythm keeps things marching forward though the progress itself isn’t as important as the fact that we’re all getting there together.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you repeated the actions of the day a few dozen times, what would you get? Your cosmic gift of the day is the impulse to think of the long-term effects of an action with reasonably accurate projections.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s strange, but if today is proof, it seems you can aggressively ignore someone and it will actually make that person more interested in you. Whatever works, works.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). What one person calls manipulative behavior, another considers to be clever managing of complexity. You’ll hit gray areas that tap into your talent for navigating nuance.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your life and work are made up of what you notice. Today’s choices range from bright and cheery to shadowy and mysterious and beyond. Your focused and specific investments of attention will shape the day.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve had more than your share of obstacles on this journey, but the current test is a little harder, perhaps because it’s self-created. Don’t worry, you’ll overcome this one too.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Of course, there are more stars of your life than just you, but as the main character, if you give too many of the scenes over to the whims of your co-stars, the story will get away from you. Get back in control.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The compliments of flattery can be true or untrue, as flattery is more about motive than factuality. That someone sees the benefit of singing your praises has merit in and of itself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People will connect with and build upon your ideas. What emerges is better for all. Just be sure to remain true to your priorities, or you’ll wind up serving someone else’s.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It might not go to plan, but it will all go better because you have a plan. Your social instincts are spot-on. Heavy karma will be worked out in lighthearted exchanges.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People will work for your approval, ask for your advice and make plays for your attention. You’ll take it as a show of respect, which it most certainly is.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). When people are chased, they run. You prefer your relationship take the form of a dance, with lots of back-and-forth action, rather than a straight chase.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It will take a lot of confidence to ask for what you want today because it’s something bigger than you would usually ask for. You’ll use what you receive to improve things for many others.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 16). Observant and prescient, you’ll anticipate interactions and prepare to make the most of them. This and your sharp social reflexes will land you in a prime position for making fun and money. More highlights: a surprise payday, a platform for your discerning taste and a chance to give someone an opportunity you never had. Sagittarius and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 44, 21, 13 and 6.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Apache hero Geronimo was among the greatest Native American military warriors and leaders. His adaptable Gemini sun is aptly positioned by a Sagittarius moon, the symbol for which is the bow and arrow. The words he uttered on his deathbed were representative of Mars in Cancer, the sign of home: “I should never have surrendered. I should have fought until I was the last man alive.”
