ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll be even more of a nonconformist than usual, perhaps triggered by the fact that a loved one is taking the opposite approach.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are likely to pay people more than is fair. You would benefit from pulling your purse strings slightly tighter.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). An "every-man-for-himself" attitude isn't callous, it's necessary.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are a high-spirited mischief-maker, in the mood to raise eyebrows. Unleash your playful madness on a horribly boring task.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Are you frustrated with your work? Simplify your process and do not take things too personally. Relax and then try again.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The horizons are broadening. Distant lands continue as a theme in connection to your work.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have lots of options, but that doesn't mean you should investigate them all.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Stay in the game even when you know the odds are stacked against you, and you'll be amazed by what you can accomplish.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Today affords you energy to tackle tasks that on a normal day might wear on you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Even though you've made a few mistakes lately, you don't regret them. You're still figuring out the way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your interests may reside outside the influence of the mainstream, but you'll get plenty of attention for them now.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This is an exciting day. Stay on your toes. There will be a surprise reversal.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 15). Your innate desire to keep improving will drive your soul this year. Since you're willing to put in some sweat and hard hours, you will receive a wonderful prize in August. New friends come into your life in September. There will be a financial bonus in October. You change course in December and may move to new digs, too. Taurus and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 3, 20, 44 and 16.
