Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For June 17, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- While those around you anticipate making quick work of something, you know just how difficult it may truly be. It's time to prepare.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Just as you mustn't mistake appearances for the real thing, you mustn't mistake posturing for action. A bold move is required today.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you begin reluctantly today is likely to conclude amid great excitement and enthusiasm -- if you have your way.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have a choice today between doing little or doing much -- and you know full well that only the latter will satisfy you at this time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have little difficulty in getting started today, but keeping the momentum going will prove a challenge until you overcome a key obstacle.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your own enthusiasm may be dampened some today by unforeseen circumstances that make things harder than they have to be. A solution is at hand.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are better to trust in the power of a positive example today than in the force of argument. You know well that words can do only so much.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're going to have to turn a blind eye to the kinds of attractions that can pull you in different directions. You must focus today!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Alternating periods of tumult and quiet will make up your day. You can have a positive influence over others who want to be inspired.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are loath to make a prediction today, as you know just how challenging things are likely to get -- and very soon, too.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Now is no time to say "I told you so," for that will do no good whatsoever. What you can do is put your considerable experience to use.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find yourself quite unhappy in the very place that you expected to find happiness -- or vice versa. Emotions play tricks today.
