ARIES (March 21-April 19). Take a picture or videotape yourself. The results will help you project the image you want to project.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your concentration may not be what you want it to be at all times, but you have greater focus than many around you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are so confident in your ability that you don't even have to think about what exactly you are doing.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Take your time in the planning of your schedule and projects. A creative approach will make everything more fun.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A project seems to be going on for a long time. Still, it's important to finish with a bang. So gather enthusiasm as you head for the finish line.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Decisions have been made without you. This will be a happy occurrence because you'll like the direction everyone is going now.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There's someone you need to confront. The first thing you say to this person will be very important.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may not want to show people your work because you believe that it's unfinished. But a project that is completely finished is lifeless.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Now that the newness and strangeness has worn off, you see your situation clearly.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you don't want to fall "out of the loop," you have to close the loop. Make sure the people around you are accountable to you, and you to them.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have an inquiring mind, and your curiosity will be flattering to others, as long as you know which questions to ask.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 7). The way it worked in the past is not the way it will work in the future. You are bright, adaptable and ready to adjust in whatever way necessary to be successful. This month, your public persona blossoms. July features freedom from something that's been a pressure for years. September and November bring adventure. Aries and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 47, 8, 27 and 24.
