The most common reaction to you is the simple exclamation "Wow!" -- and you enjoy leaving people with surprised, amazed or even astonished looks on their faces. You tend to live your whole life as if you were in the spotlight -- and quite often you are.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must act quickly today if you're going to be in a position of authority tomorrow. What you do right now will be rewarded -- and remembered.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to search far and wide for the one piece of information that has not been made available to you by others. This will pay off!
