ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are so accustomed to certain liberties that you do not even know you are free. Increase your awareness of the ways in which you are uncontrolled.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may be going through a slight burnout at work, questioning your career choices. Blow off the grunt work to focus on the thing about your job you love.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're in the thick of an important decision. Make a list of pros and cons - not because one side will outweigh the other, but because it will get you centered on what matters.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll get an insight into the part of a relationship that is not working. It's great because this is probably a minor issue that can be easily handled with few choice words.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Doing different kinds of work will keep you engaged in life. When you get discouraged with one thing, move to reinvigorate yourself.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The project you're into now won't provide an immediate payoff. Your dreams and visions of the glory days ahead of you will be a reward in the short term.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When faced with the choice of being a skeptic or a believer, you are wise to choose the latter. At least right now, there is no harm in it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). An interesting challenge might be called an "issue" or a "problem" - but not by you. You're more likely to name this something grand like, "my greatest adventure to date."

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Address those who hold a viewpoint that opposes your own. Your well-phrased argument might have an impact.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There is something you know you can accomplish, even though there is not a shred of evidence to support you. Never surrender to doubt.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Use your "no, thank you's" often today. Furthermore, walk away from all unwanted influences.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Someone who comes across as supportive and involved may also be more controlling than you'd like. Lay boundaries.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 9). You give generously of your talents this year and sharpen them in the process. The work you do increases in value - new customers pay a fair price. Your love life sparkles this month. Scorpio and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 44, 42, 7 and 20.
