Astrology: Take a look at your daily horoscope
Happy birthday: for Thursday, June 27. This year, you deal with many unexpected events. For example, a new person could land in your life and totally change your direction, or you could get what you want out of the blue. If you’re single, relating to a new person could be challenging but worthwhile, especially if this person opens new doors for you. If you’re attached, you and your partner have a sound friendship as well as a loving bond. As a couple, you go for a long-desired, mutual goal.
TAURUS can be stubborn. You cannot change their opinions.
Aries (March 21-April 19): ★★★★ Use the early hours for yourself or a key project. You’ll accomplish far more than you thought possible in a short period of time. Question an investment or a situation involving your funds. A little care goes a long way. Tonight: Make weekend plans.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): ★★★★ You might be slow to start, but by midday, you breeze through your to-do list. Understand that others cannot always fit into your time slot. If you need to, flow with another person’s schedule. Weigh what’s happening behind the scenes. Tonight: Don’t hesitate to do what you want; let others follow.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): ★★★ Take your time making a decision. You still might not have all the needed information. You’ll gain unexpected insight by dealing with this issue. Use what you learn to empower yourself. Tonight: Keep spending under control.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): ★★★★★ Your point of view later in the day will be different than your waking perspective. Consider and emphasize how much support you have to make a significant change. Weigh the pros and cons of continuing as you have. Tonight: A friend wants to visit.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): ★★★★ Actions taken early in the day demonstrate your savvy and knowledge. You could feel good about the results. If you act later, you could discover that a boss or another authority figure might be interfering and difficult. Tonight: Don’t go overboard.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): ★★★★★ One-on-one relating highlights a misunderstanding and challenges you to find a resolution. First, try to identify with the other party. To find a meeting point, understand where this person is coming from. Tonight: As you like.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): ★★★★ Others remain dominant and seem to enjoy their positions -- for now. A one-on-one discussion draws powerful results that take you down a new path. Understand what another person wants. You might be able to say yes far more easily. Tonight: Dinner for two.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): ★★★★ Others keep appearing at your door, on your cell and in your emails. Clearly, these people seek you out for various and sundry reasons.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): ★★★★ You have your share of work and need to focus on one item at a time. The unexpected tosses your schedule into chaos. Respond to this change with goodwill. Recognize that you can only do so much. Tonight: Clear your desk. Off to the gym.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): ★★★★ Stay centered. You could feel disappointed that a child or loved one seems to cause more trouble than you’d like. Tap into your ingenuity because this interaction easily can be changed and put on another level. Tonight: Time to kick up your heels.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): ★★★★ Basics count, but you tend to bypass them and get more ethereal. You could often find yourself in chaos, not knowing which way to turn at the moment. Use more selfdiscipline when approaching an emotional matter. Tonight: Order in.
