ARIES (March 21-April 19). A loved one will go on about something that doesn't interest you and then doesn't want to listen when it's your turn. You need to find some common ground.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Deadlines whiz by. It could be something like missing the mailman. The effect will be minor.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll be making a memory, so do it up in a way you'll be proud of later.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There's someone you'd like to contact, but you'll have trouble hooking up for the call. It's just a matter of timing.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll accept your loved one as he is and in the process realize he's not who you thought he was. It's going to work out.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Everyone needs your kindness. The one who looks like he has it all together might be struggling. And the one who's not so nice will be put into place by your attitude.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you and a loved one were stranded on a desert island, what would you do? The conversations you would have are excellent activities for today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Those who don't warm up to many people will feel safe around you. It's not so much what you say but the way you say things that is most effective.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There is something in the way you deal with people that intimidates a colleague, who is used to a softer route. You prefer to get to the point.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). An expert will give you some constructive criticism. If you apply it, your positive results will be immediate.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your contribution to a young person's life may not be appreciated in the moment, but you can be sure that it makes a difference.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You might ignore the irritating thing your loved one is doing. The behavior might end on its own, but if it doesn't by Monday, bring it up.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 11). Your influence grows through the year. In July, you'll curb your ambition in order to tend to the needs of loved ones, especially those younger than you. This generosity you bestow will have a long-term impact on the lives of others. A financial perk comes in August. New transportation makes life easier in October. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 10, 25, 49 and 31.
