Born today, you are a high-spirited, positive individual, but you are also prone to periods of depression that can be quite devastating if you are not quick to pull yourself out of the depths. Such feelings of sadness can threaten much that you are working toward in life, but if you keep your head above water, you can recover and continue on a course of endeavor that can bring you a great deal of material success and personal contentment. At your best, you are jovial, energetic and inspired. When in the grips of a darker humor, you can be quite the opposite -- sad, sedentary and unenthusiastic about everything. You must learn to control the onset of such moods!
You often feel compelled to do the things that are the most difficult for you, not with the intent of making life harder than it has to be, but rather to challenge yourself in ways that can lead to greater knowledge and personal development. In addition, you simply enjoy the excitement such challenges can bring.

THURSDAY, JUNE 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Giving someone what he or she asks for can make you feel good, but it may not be in his or her best interest. Think twice!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're likely to receive an offer that has you rethinking much of what you've planned for the near future.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There's only one thing that you absolutely have to do, but you want to fit in something else that carries great personal importance.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're about ready to give up on someone who simply doesn't seem able to keep his or her word. Still, such a step is hard to take.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your personal feelings may not be entirely appropriate to the situation at hand, but you are unable to partition them off.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're in the mood to work closely with a certain someone -- or perhaps you have something else in mind altogether. What's going on?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are keeping someone waiting for what you may consider a very good reason, but he or she will surely be after you for an explanation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're in need of some assistance -- not to execute your plan, but to get everything cleaned up afterward. Call a friend.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're in the mood to see things done in an unusual way. Perhaps you can take a leaf out of a mentor's book.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must make a plan and stick to it. There's very little wiggle room, and others will surely be watching you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Despite conventional wisdom, practice isn't likely to make perfect, but there's no reason you can't make some real headway.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Focus on doing the things you really want to do. If you set your mind to it, you can fit them in and get other things done, as well.
