Born today, you are like many Cancer natives in that you have a deep and abiding interest in domestic harmony and personal contentment. What sets you apart from your fellow Cancer natives, however, is your desire for advancement. You want to position yourself at the top, no matter what it takes, and you will sacrifice your own sense of self to achieve that goal. The trouble, of course, is that once you reach the top, there may be no one to share your success with if you abandon your true self on the way there! So, clearly, you must learn to strike a balance between achievement and personal development. You certainly don't want to be alone!
You are pulled toward others by a kind of gravity that is difficult to resist. When you feel attracted to another, you simply must see where it will lead or you will wonder about "what might have been" for a long, long time. You don't like such questions; you like proof of what is possible -- and you'll do what you must to get it!
Also born on this date are: George Michael, singer; Carly Simon, singer; Jimmie Walker, actor; Ricky Gervais, comedian; June Lockhart, actress; George Orwell, author; Sonia Sotomayor, U.S. Supreme Court Justice; Anthony Bourdain, chef and TV personality; Sidney Lumet, director.
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.
THURSDAY, JUNE 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to pay a higher price today for something that in the past cost you very little. The decision-making process gets tricky.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can care for those in need of care without attracting a great deal of attention -- and that is the best way to go about it for now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You mustn't do anything that is in violation of the rules. Still, you may be tempted to bend them slightly to suit your present needs.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're in a position to demand more today than you might otherwise. When the chips are down, others will be looking to you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You know how bad -- and how good -- things can be. You've been fully prepped and are capable of handling both extremes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your knowledge of "the way things are" will help you arrange the day's events to suit the needs of so many who are relying on you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your willingness to do as you are told can serve you quite well, but at some point you may be compelled to say "no" to a certain request.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It's time to treat those in your care to something a little more fun than the same old routine activities. Use your imagination!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll be privy to certain information that others are eagerly seeking. By day's end, they'll be coming to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're ready to make a certain sacrifice, but you're not going to give another the go-ahead to do something you wouldn't do.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're expecting things to be easier than they've been in the recent past, and they can be, but at least one endeavor will prove complicated.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you have to do today may conflict with another's assigned duties. You can come up with a way for both of you to do what must be done.
