TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (June 28). It may seem like the con­se­quences of one di­rec­tion or the other will al­ter life dras­ti­cally. Don’t let this par­a­lyze you. The re­al­ity is that you’ll come out smil­ing ei­ther way. Lighten up and choose. Com­pan­ion­ship is rich, though Septem­ber calls for a solo mis­sion. Pro­fes­sional break­throughs hap­pen in Jan­uary and June. Gemini and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 9, 20, 4, 44 and 15.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). This week fea­tures the cos­mic equiv­a­lent of an in­vi­ta­tion to a fancy din­ner in which you’ll be around new peo­ple you’d be keen to im­press. Your choice of at­tire will be equally im­por­tant to the top­ics you pull out of your con­ver­sa­tional hat.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s hard to “hate the sin and love the sin­ner,” when both the “sin” and the “sin­ner” hap­pen to be for­ward­ing your in­ter­ests. Take a look at what you might be com­plicit in by sim­ply want­ing what you want.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The reck­on­ing your soul longs for may be with some­one from long ago. That mo­ment has passed, and it will be im­pos­si­ble to get back to it, but there’s still a way to make things right go­ing for­ward.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). While the wel­fare of oth­ers is a wor­thy in­vest­ment, don’t give your re­sources out of a sense of guilt or obli­ga­tion. Any­one who makes you feel like you’re in­debted is in­cor­rect and pos­si­bly con­ning you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It may feel as though you are ton­ing down some­thing about your­self to avoid chal­leng­ing, up­set­ting or of­fend­ing peo­ple around you. It’s true that what you re­ally want will cause waves, but it’s noth­ing you can’t han­dle.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The uni­verse will be per­sis­tent with you. What starts out as a sug­ges­tion, if not taken, will later be pre­sented to you as a chal­lenge. If you still do not take on the idea, it will present as more of a de­mand.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If your leisure time doesn’t pro­vide the stress re­lease you need and your work keeps ramp­ing up the tension, per­haps both need a se­ri­ous look. Don’t pas­sively live out the de­fault ver­sion of your life. Go for the juice.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The words that help you rea­son your way through a prob­lem will mean noth­ing to your emo­tional brain, which speaks a dif­fer­ent lan­guage. To get your whole mind on board, en­gage through your senses.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Peo­ple will of­ten go to greater lengths to avoid bore­dom than they will to avoid pain. You can use this fact to your ad­van­tage and get good re­sults by ap­ply­ing your knack for en­ter­tain­ing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It will take more than hard work to win at this game. Mo­men­tum will help. It’s a mat­ter of re­duc­ing fric­tion and align­ing your­self with max­i­mum con­gru­ence; get all the el­e­ments aligned in the same di­rec­tion.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). More than any other time in his­tory, peo­ple have come to ex­pect to be en­ter­tained at ev­ery junc­ture. Find­ing rea­sons to be en­gaged (in­stead of wait­ing for the ob­vi­ous cap­ti­va­tion cues) is a sign of special in­tel­li­gence.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In those times when your life feels com­pletely filled up and yet oddly un­ful­fill­ing, iden­tify the ac­tiv­i­ties that are the equiv­a­lent of eat­ing junk food — i.e., quan­tity rich and nu­tri­ent poor. CREATORS SYN­DI­CATE
