ARIES (March 21-April 19): Pats on the back may be few and far between, but it's still important to do your best. A negative outlook makes every mistake look worse. Find something good about even the worst things.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Past experience may have made you overly cautious in a social situation. Tact and diplomacy may be taken to such extremes that someone doesn't trust you as much as he or she should.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): No one is going to spare your feelings. You may be challenged to a duel of wits with a straight-shooting conversationalist. Some romantic amusements might show up on your doorstep tonight.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Flying off the handle could land you in hot water. Aggressiveness could be in the air, so be polite and as even-tempered as possible. Your financial judgment is better than usual, but don't make major purchases right now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Problems may not be as bad as they seem. Keep an eye out for the silver lining in every cloud and an opportunity to improve your position. There may be an object lesson in a financial crisis.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Concentrate on faithfulness to a job, a cause, or a person. Relationships can take wing and soar to new heights of happiness when you put heads together, as well as hearts.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Practical matters take the cake. To get the most notice, make sure your shirt is pressed and your shoes are shined. You'll be able to spend time fine-tuning an absorbing creative activity.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your outlook will improve if you keep a smile on your face through thick and thin. Tread water if minor setbacks prevent you from reaching goals. Don't make mountains out of molehills.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stay home and watch TV or sew a missing button back on a favorite shirt. Avid attention to friendly spectator sports or keeping your hands busy will prevent disputes and arguments with others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Every time you lose it means you're that much closer to a win. Small failures almost always precede a big success. It is possible you'll experience a letdown of some type.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Loyalty to loved ones never leaves you in the lurch. Charm and attractiveness give you the upper hand in relationships, but it's mutual commitment and trust that bind couples together best.
IF JUNE 7 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You're inspired by your surroundings and could get caught up in fantasies during the next 6-8 weeks. A weekend getaway or vacation might soothe your soul. You have the passion to make a success of anything. Don't be distracted by a lack of response from loved ones in August, when it's possible to blow things out of proportion. You could experience some ups and downs in relationships and even your job until the first of the year. Graciously accept the gifts, assistance and advantages showered upon you in January and use that time to set any relationship problems right.
