Horoscopes for June 17, 2014

By
From page B5 | June 16, 2014 |

Some say they can’t live without beauty, that they need it to live as much as they need food. What do you think? Is beauty the fuel that keeps you producing and creating? If so, you will find sympathizers, allies and new sources of loveliness once the moon slips into artistic Pisces this afternoon. Make beauty your quest this evening.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It truly is better to receive criticism than praise. It doesn’t feel better. In fact, it sometimes stings. But it makes you better, and therefore, it’s a far greater gift. Count on it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are so full of information and ideas that it will be hard to hold anything back. Good news, though: If you give away everything you know, it comes back to you threefold.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll either be filling a position or assessing the choice you made to fill it. Bad habits can be corrected or compensated for, so don’t be too quick to judge today’s imperfect contenders.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Maybe you don’t have to fight for freedom in the same way that your ancestors did, but you’re still fighting for it in some way – a way that will be important to your ancestors.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Today feels like a game of limbo in which you’re being asked to bend backward as far as you can without hitting the limit or falling down. You’re flexible, indeed, but should they really be asking this much of you?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What you do to work out your mind will be just as crucial to your well-being as what you do to work out your body. Because you plan so well, there will be time to get it all in.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People say that internalizing emotions isn’t good for you, but you have your own sense of timing and will open up only when you are good and ready. Much depends on your decisions about whom you can trust.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will attract that which you focus on. It’s like you know what you were meant for and are perfectly aligned with having it. Therefore, the day’s challenge feels like a no-brainer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll work well with people who are very different from you. You can be quite productive together without sharing the same sensibilities. You’ll mesh in interesting ways.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Forethought leads to good business. Avoid forgetting the name of someone you should know well. Before leaving for an event, think about whom you might run into and what you might small talk about.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t expect the energy to center on you, and yet it will – maybe because you have so much to give these days and the others are eager to check that out.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There is no point in trying to make your life predictable. It can only be as predictable as the rest of the world, whose predictability level varies between delightfully spontaneous and mildly chaotic.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Go on and tackle the goal you weren’t quite able to reach last year. You’re smarter this time around, and your hard work will culminate in an August win. July sees you buying or selling something big. Sweet connections become dearer in September. Friends will envy your position in October. Taurus and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 11, 28, 37 and 1.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My wife is a Taurus, and I’m a Sagittarius. She believes that money is meant to be spent and that if you have extra money after you’ve earned enough to survive you should use it to enjoy your life.

”I believe that material things don’t make your life better; in fact, they make it worse. Everything you buy makes you spiritually heavier, and the accumulation of things is like a jail cell. You have to maintain all of this stuff, and you’re not free anymore. You have to think twice before you decide to go off on an adventure because ‘who will guard the house and take care of the pets?’ You can’t up and move anywhere because you have 10 tons of stuff, and it’s too much of a hassle.

”I feel trapped. How can my wife and I come together on this?”

As the sign of money, Taurus has an appreciation for quality things and will assign deeper meaning to them than you do. It’s not just “stuff” to her. Try to be sensitive to the material expression of her values as you come up with a financial plan that suits both of you. If you can agree on a plan and stick to it, you will once again feel free.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “Duck Dynasty” was the highest rated show on television last year, which changed the life of Gemini reality star Sadie Robertson in interesting ways. She even got to sing with Alison Krauss on her family Christmas album, Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas. Her sun and Mercury in Gemini indicates quick wit, bright levity and a communicative personality. Sadie is happiest when talking and sharing.
