The sun is waving goodbye and blowing kisses in the final throes of Gemini, and things are about to get less sociable as she crosses into the realm of the crab. The emphasis is on home: where it is, what it means and what we’ll do to protect and serve it. The summer solstice will bring on the cosmic comfort of home.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some say the iris gets narrower as you get older, but your vista is only increasing. Don’t forget to look up from your day-to-day to scan the horizon of your possibilities.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will be tempted to wonder “where did I go wrong,” but what you really should be asking is “how did I go right,” because you’re much better off precisely because things didn’t work out as planned.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s like the forces are aligning to make you more creative. Funds or other resources that were previously available may be limited for unforeseen reasons, and this is a blessing in disguise.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll receive the kind of recognition that people strive for, and it will bring the good feeling you expected for a time. Enjoy it and soak it up before everyone goes back to minding their own business.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve spent too much time of late listening to the music of your own thoughts. Open up and engage with the playlists of others’ minds, and discover some new music.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You give people the proper amount of time for their role in your life. For someone who wants to be more important to you, this will not be enough. Now you have a decision to make. How close do you want to be?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve known places you hadn’t technically visited. When you got there, nothing seemed surprising and you knew the layout. When it happens again today, pay closer attention to what it means.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s like you’re shopping in another country where the numbers on the price tags mean nothing to you because you don’t know the exchange rate. You appreciate the value of things even if you don’t fully understand what they are.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you try to find out what the plan is, it becomes clear that there will be no plan unless you come up with one. You’re qualified to be the “man” with the plan.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Dismay over unhappiness in family relations will turn into delight when you lend a sympathetic ear and make it clear to a special someone that you’re in their corner.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have a particular kind of charge to you today, and the emotional impression you make will linger after you’ve left. It’s worth giving some thought to how people will feel because they mingled with you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your luck will be uncanny. You’ll wander into the right people at the right time. You’ll be handed opportunity — and mostly because you ask for it with smiling eyes.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. This year introduces more love into your life. In July, take what you’re given and run with it, and things quickly will improve. In August, ideals are disrupted when you create something unexpectedly beautiful. An unnecessary purchase seems important, but resist and you’ll attract real wealth in November. Capricorn and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 28, 1, 44, 38 and 50.
WHAT’S YOUR SUMMER THEME? What happens post-solstice will get to the heart of what this summer is about for you. For LEO, summer will bring a feeling of coming into your own. You’ll go away and get perspective on your life. You’ll see what you can no longer tolerate and make a new choice with relative ease because you’re ready. As for VIRGO, this will be the summer of remarkable happenings. Have you ever seen a double rainbow? Burning water? Snow in July? These things and stranger will contribute to the memory of this oddball summer. Always be ready to snap pictures, because you just can’t tell when the zaniness will ensue. LIBRA will have more of a conventional kind of luck. Giddy glee comes from guessing the right numbers or attracting the desirable dance partner. The recovery of lost items will also play into Libra’s happiness. SCORPIO is single-minded at this stage of the year, realizing that what is most needed is to hold one special aim in the center of his or her vision and keep moving toward it. A travel adventure may be the goal that’s juicy enough to drive Scorpio forward, especially if said travels will take Scorpio great distances.
