ARIES (March 21-April 19). Instead of wondering how things are, make it up in your head the way you prefer it to be.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don't have to explain yourself to anyone. Just do what you do, and the others will adjust.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It will be too easy to overindulge on a day like today. Exercise and some pampering will combat the temptation.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your confidence has been waning. In the whole spectrum of things, your contributions are excellent and necessary.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Because you make the rules, you must decide how you are going to enforce them. Knowing this lessens your chances of having to do so, which will calm you down.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are learning where your boundaries are in a friendship and how to stay within them. Soon you'll get into a comfortable groove.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You've performed in the way you do, and people liked it. Now, just try to repeat yourself and keep it fresh.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You might spend the whole day organizing. It may not feel like you've done anything important, but you have.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you send a message to someone, you want a fast answer. But your messages tend to provoke thought, which takes longer to process.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Happiness finds you naturally when you pay attention to where you are. There are thousands of reasons for you to be ecstatic just waiting to be claimed.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People tell you one-sided stories, and it's up to you to figure out what the missing information could be.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will turn your experiences inside out and give them a good shake. Then you'll collect the fallen bits and make something wonderful from them.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 14). Relationships that develop over the next six weeks will launch exciting projects. You may travel as a result. In August, you'll feel as though you are walking your path alone, but this will come as a feeling of liberation instead of a fearful realization. You are free to go where you want in life. Family additions happen in January. Aquarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 30, 1, 33 and 29.
