Born today, you do not consider yourself "star material," and yet you are likely to be thrust into the public eye because of your professional successes. You have the kind of life that others would like to have. Many are jealous of your good fortune, forgetting that most of what you have you worked hard to attain, and that your successes didn't just happen, but were the result of planning, process and performance. You are able to take criticism very much in stride, and you don't let praise go to your head; you see yourself in a very realistic light, and you consider yourself no more special than anyone else.
Your natural creativity is perhaps your single greatest strength, and it will serve you well in both your personal life and your professional affairs. Indeed, your entire career is likely to take shape because you are able to approach your daily responsibilities in such a creative manner. You do things your way -- or not at all.
Also born on this date are: Tupac Shakur, rapper; Phil Mickelson, golfer; Stan Laurel, actor and comedian; Geronimo, Native American hero; Irving Penn, photographer; Joyce Carol Oates, author; Jack Albertson, actor; Erich Segal, author.

SUNDAY, JUNE 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're hoping that you're invisible while you deal with an uncomfortable situation, but it's likely that everyone knows what's really going on.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may surprise yourself when you decide to go for broke. Your ability to meet a challenge head-on kicks in at just the right time today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're going to be expected to do more than you usually do on days like this. Express yourself openly if you find yourself backed into a corner.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can glean much from those operating in close proximity to you -- but take care you're not learning the wrong lessons!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll want to get closer to someone who has been in your shoes in the recent past. He or she has much information to bestow at this time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- An awkward situation is only made more so by ignoring the elephant in the room. You must be willing to talk about all pertinent issues.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your immediate environment is likely to influence you today in some unusual ways. Someone in charge is willing to give you a second chance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The possible and the impossible are both looking attractive to you today -- but only one shows any real promise. Do what can be done!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't try to do something sneaky or devious today, for you're sure to be found out. Keep things aboveboard at all times.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're in need of an emotional boost, and you know just who can give it to you. He or she is not able to read your mind, however!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Adjustments made today can prove even more valuable to you tomorrow. A rival is ready to make his or her move -- but you know the drill.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your ability to see things the way they really are, without being blinded to reality by anyone's attempt at deception, serves you well today.
