Born today, you are the kind of person who attracts attention wherever you go, but this may not always be the best thing for you or anyone around you. There are times when you might want to take more of a soft-pedal approach to your endeavors, one that will give you a chance to learn, evolve and tailor your thoughts, words and efforts to the situation a bit more effectively. You are so instinctive that almost everything you do is a knee-jerk reaction to the words and actions of others -- you often act quickly so that you may come out on top and win the day. You are fiercely competitive, and you will brook no criticism when you are on the front lines doing what you believe in and know how to do well.
Your internal rhythms are quick, and your energy runs high. You are never one to hold back when you feel compelled to do something -- you simply don't have that kind of self-control! What you do have going for you is your ability to sell an idea, to convince others that it is the best course of action, perfectly suited to their needs as well as your own.

THURSDAY, JUNE 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Stay calm, focused and nimble. Don't let anyone tell you what is important. You can solve a logistical problem on your own.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The ordinary and the extraordinary will clash, and you'll have to choose which will take up the majority of your time. It's not easy!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will want to stop what you are doing and look closely at all fine print before continuing according to plan. You want no surprises!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you set in motion will involve far more than your inner circle of friends when all is said and done. Are you ready?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be able to enjoy a victory lap, but you mustn't rest on your laurels! A challenger will step from the shadows almost immediately.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to use more than the usual common sense to persuade a certain someone that your way is the best way. This won't be easy!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The plans you've made recently may be upset by an unforeseen circumstance over which you have absolutely no control. Make adjustments.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You think you've been open and honest with everyone, but the truth is that you've left someone out -- and he or she is feeling resentful.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Those in charge may be critical of what you are doing, but not the way you are doing it. Can you dedicate your efforts to something else?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone may be cramping your style quite by accident, but the effect is the same as if he or she were doing it intentionally.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may experience something of a slowdown after a period of accelerated activity. You may actually find that this is a good thing!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can say yes or no, but you must realize that you'll have to live with that choice for some time to come. This time it's for real!
