CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everyone just wants to feel better, including you. You're in a good place, so you're willing to do the hard work that will make this happen.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's your instinct to use the element of surprise to entertain others. In your book, it's a sin to be generic and boring.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you have a lot on your mind, as you do right now, you appreciate the kind of people who get right to the point.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is a difference between wanting to do what's right and being afraid of the repercussions that could happen if you do what's wrong.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The business of creating codes can be tricky. The answers that seem obvious in the moment may prove difficult to recall. All is saved by writing things down.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your self-definition is constantly changing these days. Challenge is essential to your happiness.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're familiar with today's ultra-focused state of mind. Frequent breaks will help you maintain a healthy perspective.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your overactive sense of duty may have you working on projects that are not likely to forward your own interests directly or immediately, but you'll never regret fulfilling your obligations.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You can't decide where you want to live today. You'll bounce between Earth and ethereal realms of thought and feeling. Record what you come up with.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 6). You'll form your own theories from the rushing stream of information and ideas that flows your way this month. Experiment in June. A breakthrough in the early stages will be followed by a new source of funding that opens up in July. Someone who appeals to your tender heart will win your loyalty in September. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 50, 36, 28 and 16.
