Horoscopes for June 21, 2014

By
From page A7 | June 21, 2014 |

The sun moves into Cancer beginning a new season and a fresh game. This day is filled with potential. Playing your cards right usually starts with some knowledge of what “right” really means. Not today. Though having a good overview of the rules and the odds might make you feel more in control, much is determined by the luck of the draw.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you tell people more or less the expected thing, they will hold it in their head for a few minutes and promptly forget it. So don’t be afraid to give your news an odd headline to keep the level of attention you need on it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Everyone wants to be entertained. If they think you’ll make them smile, you’ll have their attention. That’s why this weekend it’s far better to put on a show than to give a talk.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The solar power may be leaving your part of the sky, but you’ll make up for this with a surge of inner determination. You’ll push forward without hesitation and take an energetic stance, facing life head-on.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Stay measured in your estimation of what matters. Every act counts for something, but no one act counts for everything, so there is no reason to feel overly pressured.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Staying healthy is about prevention, eating right, sleeping long and being happy. Later, you’ll be glad you put today’s energy toward creating better habits around self-care.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In a backward and unexpected twist, your act of humility draws attention to you. The spotlight you were trying to avoid will seek you out. The more you run the more it tries to warm you in its glow.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You sense that someone wants you to fulfill a role you are not well suited for, and yet there is something strangely compelling about the need. You might even feel willing to try on the role for a while.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). No one can give you confidence, because confidence comes from your assessment of yourself. Only you can bestow your trust in your own abilities. Once you do this, you’ll radiate self-assurance.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will be in your glory for the next three days. Many will want to be around you, and the few who get your undivided attention will feel truly lucky to have earned it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Intolerance and pretentiousness lead to a stiff, awkward environment in which no one feels comfortable being themselves. You know the social secret: The more accepted people feel the more fun they will be.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You warmly try to include everyone, make introductions and promote togetherness. Whether it works is not entirely up to you, but you can feel good about the efforts you make in this regard.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A relationship that has been slowly forming over the course of several years will now reach a comfort level that changes the whole game. Consider turning this into a deeper commitment.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You will create something that helps many, possibly by healing, informing, connecting or entertaining people. Next month’s love connection will have a favorable impact on your domestic scene. In August, you’ll pour your time and efforts into a project that brings hope to the hopeless. Bonus money comes in November. Leo and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 21, 24, 39 and 18.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: Yesterday a Libra asked how to make faster decisions instead of agonizing over the options.

On Thursday, we discussed how the first step is to reduce the pressure by recognizing that most decisions are not matters of life and death and will not even matter in the long term. The second step is to accept our fearful and grave feelings and work through them with self-talk that keeps things in perspective.

Furthermore, minimizing the amount of personal upset associated with making the wrong choice will help you come to a conclusion with less stress. Consider that when the options do not have to do with life-threatening matters, you really can’t go wrong. Some choices lead to the intended results, while others lead to an education. There are also choices that send you on an adventure, give you a funny story or align you with a destiny you wouldn’t have considered. Recognizing that there are many categories beyond the so-called “right” choice may help you relax and pick the one you find interesting, instead of the one you think is correct.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The minutiae of their royal lives is something of a public fascination, and so every few hours of the day or night, news is posted about Prince William and his lovely wife, Kate Middleton. Are they updating a country house? Attending a graduation? Vacationing? If it’s about the Cancerian prince, it’s reported. Luckily, the hard shell his sign is known for keeps him somewhat protected.
