Born today, you are able to recognize and satisfy your needs in a way that wins you a great deal of admiration from others -- especially those who fall short when it comes to helping themselves or taking advantage of their own opportunities as they arise. You are always on the lookout for that next big thing, one that may propel you forward at great speed toward a prize that satisfies you more than any other ever has. Winning that prize may be something of a pipe dream, but the truth is that it is most important to you because it motivates you, compels you to excel and drives you onward despite any difficulties you may encounter. Keeping your eyes on the prize keeps you going! You are tremendously sensitive, and you can use your churning emotions in your work in ways that are most unusual and noteworthy.
Despite your healthy ambitions, you understand that to realize your full potential takes time, and you're not one to rush anything that you feel will eventually pay off. You believe in the old saying that "the readiness is all" -- though that doesn't mean you'll never try something before you are absolutely prepared! From the attempt comes learning -- and ultimately readiness for future endeavors.
Also born on this date are: George Michael, singer; Carly Simon, singer; Jimmie Walker, actor; Ricky Gervais, comedian; June Lockhart, actress; George Orwell, author; Sonia Sotomayor, U.S. Supreme Court justice; Anthony Bourdain, celebrity chef; Sidney Lumet, director.

MONDAY, JUNE 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may want to experiment with different methods, despite a friend's suggestion that you stick to what you know best.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're nearing the end of an important personal phase. Before the day is out, you'll start looking back and assessing recent progress.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Now is no time to see things in terms of generalities and broad strokes. Look closely at the details; read the fine print very carefully.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You don't have to approve of everything that happens around you, but neither do you have to adopt any bad habits that others might display.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Things that happen to you are not likely to add up -- at first. Later on, a single piece of information serves as a valuable key.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You shouldn't break under the pressure being exerted by someone else, though you may bend a bit. This is not a sign of weakness.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A partner, loved one or member of your team may object to where you are leading your allies. You must be willing to discuss this openly.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Despite your belief in the healing power of time, you may not be in the mood to wait out what is currently ailing you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone will want you to offer proof of one of your assertions, but you have much more than that to offer. You can win the day.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Pay attention to what you feel beneath the surface. You have more at stake than you had thought, and your instincts will serve you well.
