TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (June 9). The start of this so­lar re­turn comes with a feel­ing like you’ve landed on an­other planet. You’ve lit­tle in com­mon with your sur­round­ings and the be­ings who share them. There will be many ben­e­fits to learn­ing this alien cul­ture, and you’ll cash in on what you know. Au­gust fea­tures prom­ises ex­changed. Capri­corn and Aries adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 7, 40, 22, 15 and 38.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your pow­ers of imag­i­na­tion are so mighty these days that they can be used as tools to over­come fear. A vivid pic­ture of the fu­ture you’re cre­at­ing will mag­net­i­cally over­ride your trep­i­da­tion.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20). You might feel com­pelled to ex­plain, de­fend or jus­tify your choices to that per­son who seems to think he or she is owed a re­sponse. But the thing is, no one is owed any­thing from you to­day. Maybe you should pro­ceed in si­lence.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 21). Emo­tions seem to visit you from ev­ery­where: the pass­ing clouds; the pic­ture that trig­gers a mem­ory; a bale­ful pas­sage of song; or an ex­u­ber­ant melody. It’s all ripe for in­spi­ra­tion.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). To put one’s head in­side the croc­o­dile’s mouth isn’t bold; it’s fool­ish. Maybe it’s also fool­ish to put one’s heart in the hands of an­other and hope for mercy. Un­for­tu­nately, it’s love’s na­ture.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you could put to­day’s prob­lem into a box, it would be a re­ally tiny box. The key is to look at it as it re­ally is, with­out let­ting your mind do fun­house mir­ror trick­ery on the sit­u­a­tion.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s go­ing to re­ally take some time and a ma­jor ef­fort for your cur­rent en­deavor to be fruit­ful. Are you OK with hav­ing noth­ing to show for your ef­forts for a long while? If you are, you know that this is the right pur­suit for you.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Ex­pe­ri­ence is the main goal, and a wor­thy one at that. When you do some­thing for the sake of do­ing it, your ex­pec­ta­tions of your­self ad­just ac­cord­ingly and you can re­lax into the very ful­fill­ing process of learn­ing.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Maybe you’re the most qual­i­fied per­son to as­sess your sit­u­a­tion, and maybe you’re not. It would be wise to ask for other points of view. An out­sider will help you un­der­stand some­thing you didn’t be­fore.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s not so hard to make the choice to be kind to your­self. Even if this is not your first in­stinct, you’ll take to it and quickly un­der­stand why most progress is made by the self-en­cour­ag­ing.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You think any­one could do your job, but the truth is that it wouldn’t be so easy to re­cast you. Even if some­one pro­fi­cient stepped in, it wouldn’t be the same. Any­way, to­day it just has to be you.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This un­help­ful thought you’re hav­ing: Did you have it yes­ter­day, too? And the day be­fore that? Its re­cur­rence isn’t an in­di­ca­tor of its va­lid­ity; it only means that it’s more of a habit than a thought. Habits can be bro­ken.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Don’t be afraid to make the first move. As you make new friends you’ll help oth­ers get to­gether, too. Your good cheer will re­duce peo­ple’s so­cial trep­i­da­tion and fear of re­jec­tion.
