Born today, you are likely to lead a life of vivid contradictions, the most dramatic of which is sure to be your seeming confidence and willingness to give almost anything a try as opposed to the self-doubt that so often keeps you from enjoying your own accomplishments. This is the central paradox of most Cancer natives, and in you, it sits as a kind of defining element from which you will never escape.
Your private life is, as far as you are concerned, nobody else's business -- and yet even in this you are destined to suffer a striking contradiction, for as much as you cherish your privacy, you're likely to attract a great deal of attention throughout your lifetime. You may, in fact, reach a point in your life at which you must bid a sad farewell to anonymity.
Also born on this date are: Randy Jackson, producer and TV host; Jason Mraz, singer; Selma Blair, actress; June Carter Cash, singer; Wilma Rudolph, Olympian; Frances McDormand, actress; Bob Fosse, director and choreographer; Clarence Thomas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice; Bryan Brown, actor.

FRIDAY, JUNE 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Because you are feeling more creative than usual, you may run afoul of someone who insists that everything be done by the book today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You know how things work -- or you used to. Today, you may be confused by something that would have been simple to you not very long ago.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Don't forget to consider any possible long-term effects of what you do today -- especially if what you do flies in the face of convention.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Two paths seem to converge today, and where they meet, you'll likely be presented with the kind of choice you thought you'd never have to make.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Something that no one else around you is willing to try falls into your lap, and if you choose to attempt it, you will benefit in untold ways.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've been away from the center of things for quite a while, and today you may be able to return -- without fanfare, of course. Do you dare?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you give another with enrich you as well. Decision-making proves easier than expected, especially if you front-load key activities.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It may be time, once again, to double down on something that only you seemed to believe in. Today, however, you can attract support.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You've not been taking care of yourself in the way you've been encouraged to by those around you. Do they care more about you than you do?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your choice is simple today: You can either help someone with a difficult endeavor or get out of the way. Don't be an obstruction.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may find yourself involved in a bit of mischief today, and though it wasn't your idea, you'll wind up having to share in the cost.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Guessing is likely to prove a costly mistake today; you'll want to deal at all times in that which is accurately quantifiable.
