Aries (March 21-April 19)

One of the finest gifts you can give is the opportunity to acquire your knowledge and wisdom. If you offer this, you'll have many takers. Choose the most receptive and willing.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You're proactive, and that's why you'll save yourself and those around you time, energy and money. For instance, you won't wait until something's broken to fix it. Continue to anticipate problems, and therefore, prevent them.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

You can appear wildly confident and talk the great talk, but there's no amount of posturing that can make up for not getting a promised result. The answer is either not to promise or to make sure you can deliver.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

"Hermitic" would be a good description of your social life about now. Not for long. The stars favor you coming out of your shell and making a public appearance. Your company has been missed, and your return is celebrated.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Romantically you are attracted to that cool person who seems to have all the right lines -- however, the only line that matters is the bottom line. Is this person someone you can entrust your tender heart to?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your presence has a soothing effect on the lives of others. So, spend some time with loved ones, even if you're just eating a meal together or watching TV. You will also feel healed by the communion.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

Keeping things in perspective is overrated. While this may be a detriment at times, your friends are flattered when you show more enthusiasm for their success than they do themselves. Everyone loves the cheerleader.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Overextending yourself financially bruises your bank account and strains your mental peace. Cut back on frivolous expenditures. Be your own barista by morning and personal chef by night. Side benefit: Cooking skills improve.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Jupiter ruled, you tend to be luckier than the average Joe or Jane. But this week, your brand of luck means putting yourself on the line and risking rejection every day! You'll be handsomely rewarded.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It's better to relax and think things over now than to act prematurely. A boxer who throws 100 punches but doesn't land any is useless. To make sure your "punches" hit the target, you need the benefit of a broader perspective.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

It seems you spend the whole day looking for things -- from your car keys to your heart. And where's that kind person you can trust to guard your feelings? You'll find the ally you need.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The cosmic clock says it's prime time for a family gathering. Harmony and communication are at a high, so it's safe to bring conflicting personalities together without fear of an argument. Take advantage of this photo op.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY June 26: A fantasy becomes real! Your persistent thoughts manifest in the material world within 10 weeks. So, make sure you're thinking specifically about what you really, really want. Mid-summer, you'll be celebrating love. Romance alights, but it's the friendship part of this relationship that transforms your world. Love signs are Capricorn and Virgo.
