Born today, you know how to wrap your mind around all manner of problems and dilemmas, to the point that you can turn this ability into a major strength when applied to creative endeavors. You understand that creativity itself is often a matter of solving problems that others are simply unable to crack. You're driven to succeed, but more than that, you are driven to improve yourself, task after task, year after year. You are never content with doing the same thing over again; you want to do something new, to stretch yourself, challenge yourself, and in fact change yourself so that you are, at the end, very different from what you were at the beginning.
You cannot abide trivial, unimportant activities; you would rather sit and read a good book -- or simply think great thoughts -- than engage in busywork of any kind. There may be some who find you almost intolerably haughty and aloof, but this is simply a misinterpretation of your propensity toward solitude. You merely like to be alone sometimes.
Also born on this date are: Clint Eastwood, actor and filmmaker; Brooke Shields, model and actress; Colin Farrell, actor; Joe Namath, football player; Lea Thompson, actress; Corey Hart, singer; Walt Whitman, poet; Tom Berenger, actor; Chris Elliott, actor; Sharon Gless, actress; Don Ameche, actor; Jim Hutton, actor; Norman Vincent Peale, 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.
MONDAY, JUNE 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A little more thought and a little less force should get you where you want to be by day's end. Don't let yourself be outfoxed by a rival.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can avoid trouble by minding your own business, but take care not to ignore a personal issue that arises at home.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- One down, three to go -- and you had better get them in the right order, or you may find that you have to start all over again.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're expecting things to proceed according to plan, of course, but someone may inadvertently throw a wrench into the works.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll be warned about something that you know lies dead ahead, yet circumstances may require you to continue on course.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may realize that you're not likely to reach your destination, but that is no reason to change your plans. Momentum plays a role.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to turn over control of a project to someone else, but only temporarily. Soon, you'll be back in charge.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're trying to play out a scene that perhaps cannot be concluded as you had hoped. It may be time to adjust your thinking permanently.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're tempted to do something that others have warned you against for quite some time. You may want to test the waters first.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Things are likely to improve both on the homefront and at the workplace. This is the result of a subtle shift in thinking on your part.
