Horoscopes for June 24, 2014

By
From page B5 | June 23, 2014 |

You don’t have to be a bank robber or a bungee jumper to know the value of adrenaline. Mars and Uranus engage in a cosmic tug of war increasing our need and tolerance for excitement. The Gemini moon suggests that there’s great potential for excitement in simply striking up a conversation with a stranger.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Stick close to your moral center, as there will be those around you who veer off. It’s better to make someone mad by doing what’s right than to make them happy by doing what’s wrong.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). No music? Start the dance anyway and let the music catch up. In other words, don’t wait around for the good time to start. It starts when you decide it does.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As waitstaff the world over can attest, hungry people are meaner than satisfied people. It’s hard to be patient when you don’t have what you need. But this is the patience that defines stellar character.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Boring people are usually bored. Interesting people are usually interested. You fall in the last category and should be careful to seek the same from your companions.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As the saying goes, choose your battles. Note that the saying does not suggest that you choose only large battles. Some of the small battles well fought will prevent the large ones from occurring.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are so many reasons to spend time with the people who appreciate you “as is,” not the least of which is that you won’t have to constantly edit yourself, which, as you know, gets exhausting.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Part of what makes a game fun is not knowing who is going to win. Uneven matches quickly get dull. On a related note, your personal life will be as satisfying as it is challenging.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The success or failure of your actions is irrelevant. What’s important is that you follow through, honoring your strong convictions. Action increases your confidence.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). While investigating, trust your more spontaneous instincts. If you want unpredictable answers, you have to ask the unpredictable questions.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Offer your gifts without expectation of who will enjoy them – you’ll be surprised who does. Tonight features silliness among friends, and you’ll count yourself among the truly happy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Expectations work best when you’re in a predicable place. But when you’re in a completely new situation, it’s best to let go of your ideas of how things should be and just take in what is.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Socially, you are exceptionally sharp and will remain present to what the moment needs. This quality alone makes you so attractive that you’ll have to manage the attention you get.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You have the support of those close to you, but influences outside of your immediate circle will be the key to your success in July. A mentor will help you understand just how far you’ve come and also help you celebrate this success. The travel you do for work will bring love into your life. August brings a windfall. Leo and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 11, 24 and 15.

VENUS IN GEMINI: When Venus slips into Gemini, love is a fickle mistress with many personas, each more charming than the last. Gemini loves games and will turn romance into a contest of sorts. The question that begs to be asked is: How many winners will there be? This won’t be a very fun competition if the answer is one.

So how do you know you’re playing fair at the game of love? Here are a few guidelines for this Venus-in-Gemini transit:

Pretend within range: Romantic interest has a way of bringing out a version of ourselves we wish we were, or wish we could become, instead of the version we currently are. This can be positive – especially when we rise to the occasion by becoming the person we project. But it also can be deceptive if the chasm between the real version and the projected version is too wide. This is the perfect Venus placement for practicing the fine art of stretching the truth without breaking it.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Mindy Kaling of “The Mindy Project” will star in the upcoming Pixar film “Inside Out” as the voice of Disgust, alongside Amy Poehler’s voice of Joy and Bill Hader’s voice of Fear. Born under the sign of the moonchild, Cancer natives are known for their emotional range, as they shift moods with the fast-changing moon, their ruling planet.
