Aries (March 21-April 19)

It doesn't matter how many positive thoughts you have now unless you are also feeling passionate and alive. Sing your heart out, jump up and down, dance wildly -- whatever it takes to get juices pumping through you again.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The best way to pay tribute to the paternal influence in your life is not with expensive gifts. A list of the contributions you are most grateful for will be a treasure forever. Dig down deep, and pour your heart out.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

There are days to listen and days to quietly do your own thing. This is one of the latter. Other people's opinions can be a detriment because they sway your own, which happen to be right on.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

You've had your issues with authority in the past, but today you feel nothing but thankful for the guidance you've received. Mentors and teachers are not above you. They are simply equals who have walked your path before.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

It's not the best hand you've ever been dealt, but you still must decide how to play your cards to win the game. Once you accept where you are, you'll do well . . . no, more than well. You'll be spectacular.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

To claim your birthright, you must walk through the fire. Vonda Shepard sang it best: "All of the happiness you seek, all of the joy for which you prayed, is closer than you think, it's just a hundred tears away . . ."

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

It's been said that a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing. It's also been said that the more knowledge one acquires, the more one can affirm he/she knows nothing. It's not too early to act on what you've learned.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Reserve a little tenderness for the people in your life who come off as tough. Your wisdom tells you that the bravado is just a facade covering up a secret, sensitive heart that's afraid of being found out.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Memories are a source of strength to you -- the more specific the better. Share them with the family, and you'll be amazed at how everyone has a different version of what happened.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If your dad tells you that you can or can't do something, you're likely to believe it. It's a fine time to contemplate the messages you got along the way and how you're still enacting them.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Many times in your life you have been stuck in the expectation of living and thus not really living at all. Today, stay with the moment, even if it feels as though you're doing nothing. It's better than living in the future.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

There are so many ways to show your love. The best ideas spring from your affectionate heart, as opposed to your keen intellect. So don't think too much. Feel your way through.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY JUNE 19: Your impact over the years has been incredibly significant, and this year, you'll really notice how grateful your loved ones are. They show you in big and small ways this month. Devoted love is a treasure. Get out into the world together in August. Changes in the marketplace inspire new ventures in September. Love signs are Pisces and Aries.
