Born today, you are not always going to be in the spotlight, necessarily, but you know how to influence others and the world around you even when you are playing a supporting role or working in the wings. You have the ability to get right to the heart of an issue and to reveal it to others with clarity and gusto. You can almost always convince others to think the way you do and desire the things that you desire. It is not that you are always forceful or aggressive, but that you can be whatever the prevailing circumstances require you to be -- loud or quiet, aggressive or laid-back, forceful or retiring. Your instincts are keen, and you always know which "you" to put on display to the greatest possible effect.
There is a sadness deep within that you may never be without. In your youth you may have fought against it daily, but this is not a struggle you're likely to win. Later in life, you will have learned to live with the part of yourself that is enveloped in dark clouds, for you will have come to understand how useful, even necessary, it is to you in so many ways.
Also born on this date are: Tupac Shakur, rapper; Phil Mickelson, golfer; Stan Laurel, actor and comedian; Eddie Cibrian, actor; Geronimo, Native American leader; Crash Craddock, singer; Joan Van Ark, actress; Joyce Carol Oates, author; Jack Albertson, actor; Erich Segal, author; Laurie Metcalf, actress; John Cho, actor; Daniel Bruhl, actor; Nathan Parsons, actor.

SATURDAY, JUNE 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The fact that you know someone inside and out may actually become a liability. It may be time to give control to someone else.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're facing a closed door behind which lies a golden opportunity. Is it better to knock and ask for admittance -- or break it down?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have a moment to yourself during which you can relax, regenerate some energy and reflect on how far you've come.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your separation from a friend, partner or loved one may become almost unbearable, as you want to share something quite important.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You and a friend may be able to relive a past glory, but that's not all! Something brand new will make itself available to you both.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be unusually skeptical -- and unusually superstitious. The combination may prevent you from scoring a win.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You mustn't let your feelings stand in your way. You want what you want, even if it puts you in an uncomfortable position.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't want to break stride, so keep on going despite the messages you may receive that suggest you consider opting for something new.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may overlook the obvious as you search for signs of something that lurks beneath the surface. Heed a friend's warning.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're in a good position to see what's coming, but are others going to believe that you're any different from anyone else?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have your mind on something that just won't release you from its grasp, so why not commit to its pursuit? You have nothing to lose.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A key situation cannot be controlled in the usual way, so you're going to have to trust someone else to do what must be done. Can you?
