Aries (March 21-April 19)

What some people would call a luxury, you call a necessity. There's no need to feel guilty for the lifestyle you've become accustomed to. After all, you created it, and a Gemini can help you create even more of it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Mother Teresa of Calcutta said it's easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness of someone unloved in your own home. The stars favor dedicating yourself to the needs of those closest to you.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

As long as life is colorful and varied, you feel all is well in your world. So plop yourself right in the middle of the action -- it's never far from where a Sagittarius is -- and enjoy the sense of well-being.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

You're so in love with an idea that you risk making a fool of yourself in order to get others on board. This is a big deal to someone as deeply feeling as you. Reward yourself tonight.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The planets encourage you to ponder your place in the social order. Do not be frightened of what makes you different -- it is also what makes you beautiful. Scorpio intrigues you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Some questions, once asked, are like opening the door to a whirlwind. Today, before you inquire, be sure you really want to know. Libra and Pisces look to you for leadership.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

It's easy under this sky to confuse love with other things that masquerade as love -- such as ego gratification, the settling of old scores or the answer to a shortage of capital. Hold out for the real deal.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Friendship is the only asset that matters today. When you are true to a relationship, everything else falls in place. There's little that can't be accomplished now with an open smile and a glad expression.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Everyone seems to be searching for something, but you know better. The best reason to embark on an adventure is not necessarily to find something but to create something!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The planets cause you to think differently about what has been passed down to you. In regard to your forefathers, it doesn't matter who they were so much as who you remember them to be.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A little victory is a bigger deal than you think. In small acts are the seeds of greatness. Share your joy, and it will compound. If you keep it to yourself, it fades quickly.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You're in such an exuberant mood, you may even believe that moderation is for sissies. Luckily, infectious enthusiasm is what's needed to get others involved in your domestic project.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY JULY 3: You have impressive standards this year, and people live up to them, including you. You earn enough extra money in the next five weeks to stash away savings -- seed money for a lucrative venture ahead. You'll steal hearts in August. Travel in September is a thrilling adventure -- perhaps a honeymoon! Love signs are Scorpio and Sagittarius.
