Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Misunderstandings could thrive in the fertile ground of imprudent expectations. Stick to getting things done that require physical exertion, and bypass expensive shopping expeditions.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Drive and enthusiasm will keep you hopping, but a lack of funding or cooperation might be problematic. Pessimistic attitudes can attract dissension over the next several days. Hold off on important decisions.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You could be tempted to celebrate the summer solstice with too much enthusiasm. Curb your appetite for rich foods and wasteful spending. Outdoor sports or a long walk will burn calories and prevent arguments.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Restlessness could pervade the home front, and you could be lured into spending too much to assuage your boredom. Family may drop in without notice and attack your pantry.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The urge to splurge can cause you some trouble if you allow whims to have the upper hand. Agreements can flounder in a sea of misunderstanding, so hold off on crucial discussions. You are susceptible to flattery.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Too much of a good thing can put a whammy on your piggy bank and cause others to lose respect. Restrain the itch to go overboard with indulgent luxury items. Now is not the time to mend fences with others.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your charm and beaming personality can draw others to you like moths to a flame, but they may have ulterior motives. Avoid making agreements and wasting funds on impulsive purchases.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You could be subject to a negative attitude over the next few days, so wait until next week to start new projects or pursue the person of your dreams. If called upon to socialize in the public eye, avoid overindulgence.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Worry about financial security could creep in and spoil your weekend. It is best to put off major decisions and expenditures for at least a week. Keep a stiff upper lip and tread water until the cosmos shift.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Guilt and worry can dampen your enthusiasm. If you feel boxed in by circumstances, avoid scheming to escape as plans may backfire. That black cloud hanging over your head will dissipate by next weekend.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Sweet-talking people may appear to agree with you but are not likely to follow through on promises. Tread cautiously, especially where your money is concerned.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Battle the impulse to indulge in whims as you could be attracted to things and people that are not good for you. That extra piece of cake will taste better tomorrow.

IF JUNE 20 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You will enjoy more sunshine than anyone else since your birthday falls on this year's solstice, so celebrate with some sporting events or outdoor pleasures. Burning off some excess energy will brighten your outlook. Partners may shower you with gifts but might not be in the mood for love.
