Born today, you see things from a fresh and unusual perspective -- often, indeed, one that is entirely your own. You can be, at times, quite a slippery customer, one who, wittingly or unwittingly, turns others in knots as you navigate tricky situations in ways that are unexpected and sometimes unsanctioned by those in charge. You are never malicious in what you do, however, you are simply looking for the right path for yourself -- and you never insist that anyone else try to follow you.
You have a way of making yourself seem somehow "mysterious" to others -- and that is certainly part of your charm, appeal and hold on all kinds of individuals, whether or not they know you well. Few really know if you are telling the truth at any given time, for it is just as likely that you are telling a tall tale as a story pulled accurately from life.
Also born on this date are: Venus Williams, tennis player; Barry Manilow, singer and songwriter; Greg Kinnear, actor; Igor Stravinsky, composer; Thomas Haden Church, actor; M.C. Escher, artist; Joe Piscopo, actor and comedian.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
THURSDAY, JUNE 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may suddenly realize today that you've become disillusioned with something that not long ago was the "be-all and end-all" to you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A loved one's sudden honesty strikes home today, and you will have some work to do to ease resulting tensions. Not all is as it seems.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- First one thing, then another -- today, you're going to have your hands full, and you're going to have to turn to a trusted friend for help.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to pick up the pace today before you are ready to do so. Someone is pushing you to take on more than you had planned.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You discover that the help you've been resenting lately is actually quite necessary, and you'll likely change your tune very quickly today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Keep your eyes on the road and your ears open for any indication that things are not running smoothly under the hood. You make good time today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The more literal you are, the less information you will impart. You must adopt a mode of communication that allows for codes and symbols.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Urgency has you running on all cylinders today, and yet you may not know until day's end just what it is you have at stake during this period.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're eager to take part in a group activity today, but that may not be possible because you are likely committed elsewhere.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What is it about doing something under the table that is more exciting than that which you can do aboveboard -- and is this good for you?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Confusion results from an inability to set things in motion according to a schedule agreed upon by all. Correct this and all will be well.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are eager to show someone what you're capable of, but he or she is already a fan and isn't likely to be surprised by your abilities.
