Born today, you are so clearly a Cancer native that those who know you best aren't likely to demand anything of you that doesn't come naturally; they know that you are not likely to take to those things that require you to step out of your comfort zone. Indeed, you are sure to excel when you are doing those things to which you are suited -- physically, mentally and psychologically -- and you are not likely to find anything like happiness or contentment doing things that you are forced to do either by circumstance or by other people. You must be you, at all times.
You can be quite critical of yourself, but you are so fond of a certain few of your own key qualities and traits that you never let your own self-criticism get you down. You can recover from any kind of setback quickly, and you are never one to hold a grudge. Your default mood is a rather lighthearted and optimistic one.
Also born on this date are: George Michael, singer; Jimmie Walker, actor and comic; Phyllis George, beauty queen and sportscaster; Carly Simon, singer and songwriter; June Lockhart, actress; Sidney Lumet, filmmaker; George Orwell, author.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be feeling something of a financial crunch at this time, but a close friend shows you how to get something for nothing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have no reason to stand in the way of someone else who is trying to make his or her mark. In fact, you may be able to offer assistance.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What has worked for you in the past may not be working for you now, and you'll be forced to come up with a new way of doing certain things.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- There may be something secretive about what you are doing today that attracts the attention of those who usually don't pay you any mind.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Once you begin, you're going to have to work through faithfully to the end, without interrupting your efforts in any way. Are you ready?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be called upon to do a favor for someone who has, in the past, done you similar favors. There's no real reason to say no.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be remembered today not so much for what you do, but for what you refuse to do. Your principles are what set you apart.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not have as much time on your own to tend to certain business as you had hoped. Reorder your day and you can get it all done.
