We have the all clear to do business. The Moon is in Gemini.

If Your Birthday Is June 17

Actor Greg Kinnear (1963) shares your birthday. You fool people because no matter how relaxed and casual you appear, in fact, you take everything seriously. You’re no slouch! You are also persuasive. This is a testing year in some ways. The growth that happens will occur beneath the surface. Do not make major changes yet — wait until next year. Strengthen your financial position by reducing your overhead.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Bite your tongue because power struggles with a female family member are likely. Anger serves no purpose except to make everyone miserable. Something on the home front will test your mettle for the next month. Consider this an opportunity to practice patience, cause you’re gonna need it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Avoid arguments with others because people are ready to fight at the drop of a hat. It’s not so much that everyone is contrary, it’s more a case of them wanting to win. It’s all about ego, power and control. If you express your opinions forcefully — you’ll see what I mean.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Disputes about property, cash earnings and possessions might get you in trouble with someone. But is it really worth it? You will have to see this person in the future, no doubt. Take the high road and just let it go. Be cool.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Emotional conflicts with others, especially partners and close friends, might arise. These could be based on guilt, jealousy or overpossessiveness. The key is to avoid acting impulsively. Another key is not to overreact. (Ya think?) Take your ball and bat and go home.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Someone might do something underhanded or sneaky that you don’t like. In fact, you might not be aware of it initially. One thing is certain — if you think something fishy is going on — it is. Double check everything that others tell you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Difficulties with a friend, or perhaps a member of a group, might arise. Whatever is the base of the argument, the truth of the matter is it is probably a power struggle. Who is going to be in control? And of course, a power struggle is just about ego, isn’t it?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Avoid difficulties and arguments with people in authority today — parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs and the police. This is a very poor day to tangle with others, especially if they have clout. Remain courteous and sidestep whatever you can. It’s called survival.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues because this will quickly fall into a petty argument, or worse. Speaking of which, avoid people who are inclined to be violent because you need this like a fish needs a bicycle.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Difficulties with others might arise over differences about shared property, insurance matters, inheritances, something to do with the ownership of an item or who is responsible for what. Don’t get bogged down in all this. Step aside. (” . . . a lot of men didn’t and a lot of men died.”)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The easiest way to get through today is to be courteous, patient and friendly, especially with partners and close friends. The alternative is to have nasty disputes with someone close to you. Who needs this? Not you. The minute you smell trouble coming — run the other way.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Disputes at work are tiring, anti-productive and demoralizing. There is no upside. If you do disagree with how things are going, wait for another day to make your point. Today will just descend into a power struggle with someone, which is a waste of time.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Parents must be patient with children and young people because your kids will be opinionated and resist direction. Don’t play the heavy. Keep in mind that this is a day that everyone feels over reactive to being pushed around or taking orders from anyone.
