ARIES (March 21-April 19). Part of you still feels you need more. The voice of need will lessen its grip on you when you refuse to buy in.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have a choice to cooperate with a smile, or fight what's going on. If you choose to fight, that might also be best accomplished with a smile.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You probably won't feel that you've come out on top in an exchange, but you will receive a priceless lesson in professionalism. You're learning what won't be taught in school.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your warmth is affecting. You can bet that you're on someone's mind even as you read this.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Being born under the sign of show business, you relate strongly to the maxim, "The show must go on." And "go on" you do.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The person who only wants to get close to you has a weird way of expressing this. That endearing quirkiness piques your curiosity.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's easy to come up with answers that will suit your ego. The answer that serves the very highest good, however, is simply to love what is.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It may seem selfish to ask, "What's in it for me?" To be more conscious of how and why things are exchanged isn't selfish at all - it's responsible.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Be careful not to give anyone too much significance. They don't hold the key to your life - you do.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will feel the surprising grip of your ferocious will to achieve. Hunger moves you, and all you have to do is let it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are scheming up a mutually profitable arrangement - so go for it!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Open your heart to possibility. Make room for unexpected joy to move in.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 11). You have a dream. And anyone who has a dream knows the conundrum of trying to fund it and devote time to it while doing what it takes to merely survive in the so-called real world. Your birthday gift from the universe is a bona fide "break." Yes, you'll get an opportunity that allows you to focus on what you really want to do. Aries and Leo support you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 35, 31, 44 and 29.
