Gemini (May 21-June 20)

From your privileged perspective, you will be able to sidestep social mishaps when subtle misunderstandings occur around you. Gatherings could be fraught with unpleasant undercurrents. Take promises with a grain of salt.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You may be sensitive to subtle animosities that are developing. Because you can see both sides, you might be called upon to act as a go-between or a referee for others. Be a peacemaker today.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The spirit of the day begs for family outings and gatherings, but under the pleasant surface there could be strong differences of opinion. Watch out for a tendency to go overboard and squander money.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Hostilities may seethe beneath the surface today, so be armed with logic and objectivity. People who have little in common may be thrown together for holiday parties. Remain skeptical of facts.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

It is a good time for special entertainments and to seek new faces and places. Do something far from the routine to satisfy your urge for stimulation. But be warned that what seems tantalizing now may lose its luster quickly.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Partners will be restless for excitement and may surprise you with sudden changes to social plans. Your ideas may be overly grandiose or too difficult to obtain. Follow the leader today.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Flattery and meaningless promises are in the air. Have a good time, but do not count on proposals that are made now working out. Overly generous impulses will be regretted later.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Divergent opinions could create animosity, and tensions may ripple beneath the surface today. A conservative attitude will be an asset. Maintain a "wait-and-see" outlook about proposals and ideas.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The urge to mingle and socialize is strong this weekend, so plan on attending holiday celebrations. Expect to pay social dues, however, as you could meet up with more than your fair share of insincerity.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

People might rub you the wrong way this holiday weekend. Painting a glamorous picture of your situation or hiding the truth can create confusion. Smiling faces may not mean friendship.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Relationships could be subject to stress as new people on the scene could create hidden animosities. Be as straightforward as possible and skeptical of attempts to obtain sympathy.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Having a little bit of fun that is out of the ordinary or following up on a new love interest can be exciting. Enjoy yourself, but do not expect feelings or friendships formed today to have a lasting quality.

IF MAY 30 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You expect good luck, and therefore are more likely to attract it. You glow with assurance in your own prowess and are a visionary, but you at times may overestimate your abilities because you see no limits. Promise only what you are sure you can accomplish if you wish to maintain the faith of others and want to be known as reliable.
