Born today, you are one of the most lavishly and unabashedly creative individuals born under your sign -- but that doesn't mean, of course, that you're going to be successful as soon as you step out the door on the first day of work. On the contrary, you may have to stumble and fret on your way to discovering the best manner in which to show off your considerable talents, enduring falls and missteps until you are met by someone who sees in you all that you truly are.
Also born on this date are: Blake Shelton, singer; Sir Paul McCartney, singer, songwriter, composer, former Beatle; Isabella Rossellini, actress; Jeanette MacDonald, actress; Roger Ebert, film critic.
It's not always guaranteed that you will be in the spotlight every moment, and, in fact, it may be beneficial for you to step away now and then to regroup -- especially if you find your personal life suffering because you are so busy professionally. You cannot be truly happy without balancing work, self and family; all of these must be kept in careful equilibrium at all times!
FRIDAY, JUNE 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- While looks can be deceiving, appearances today can serve you quite well -- whether you're coming or going. Be alert to all warnings.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A central issue is not to be avoided today; you must deal with it now, head-on, before it grows into something you cannot control.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A minor change to your schedule today has a major impact -- and you'll want to continue making similar adjustments in the days ahead.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're building up quite a reputation, but today something happens to knock you down a peg or two. Have you been believing your own hype?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may get a little more than you bargained for from someone you thought would be a pushover. Now is not the time to pull up short, however.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're not sure exactly what to ask for today, but something must be done to improve your situation. Have you thought it through?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may find yourself isolated today from the one person who can always help you through situations like the one you're in right now.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It's not the what, where or why that matters today -- but the "how." Indeed, it may be time for you to rethink your entire modus operandi.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You cannot imagine what someone is up to today while you are tending to routine affairs. Take a look and you'll want a change.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Coded messages aren't likely to be deciphered correctly today, so you'll want to be much more direct with certain friends and co-workers.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Take care that you don't give someone the wrong impression today because you aren't careful with your tone of voice. Remain calm and rational.
