Born today, you have what it takes to take the world by storm -- or, at the very least, the professional world of your choosing. You have been endowed with tremendous talent, and you have what it takes to stand alone at center stage and make the most out of any opportunity that comes your way. While you understand that no one is an island and everyone needs help now and then, you nevertheless do your best work entirely on your own. You enjoy homework and study, and you can often be found sitting up late at night, alone, working to finely hone the details of your next project. You leave no stone unturned when you are digging for information and answers; you are thorough, hardworking and highly critical of your own efforts -- and this, of course, enables you to be your best again and again.
No matter how hard you work, there are times when you are able to cut loose and enjoy the society of others in a free and unregulated fashion. You don't tend to display the innate timidity in large groups that plagues so many other Cancer natives, but that is only because it is something you have learned to control!

FRIDAY, JUNE 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll recognize something of yourself in someone who is trying to do something new and possibly dangerous. It may just pan out.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You've been spending far too much energy staying angry with an old friend whose unintentional offense has been long forgotten by others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're likely to find yourself in exactly the position you were trying to avoid. By day's end, you may have to make a dramatic change.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will perceive a clear similarity between what you are trying to do and what someone else has already done. This is not a bad thing!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Repeating mistakes is the one thing that can ultimately keep you from attaining the status you desire. Nothing happens by accident!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Dynamics in and around the home are affected by what is happening far afield, but you are the only one who sees the connection clearly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You don't want to stop prematurely, lest you become unable to get going again when the time comes. You must keep things moving.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have your eyes on something that you've not noticed before -- and now you're wondering if you will ever be able to call it yours.
