If Your Birthday Is June 23

Actress Emmanuelle Vaugier (1976) shares your birthday today. Romance and affairs of the heart are important to you. You deeply value your closest relationships. You also love art, music and literature and all that is enchanting. Because of this, you sometimes make what others would consider to be impractical choices. This year is the beginning of a fresh, new nine-year cycle for you. Open any door! Start a new business activity.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful in communications with others because Mercury, the planet that rules communications is at odds with fuzzy Neptune (smoke and mirrors). Because your mind is in a bit of a fog, you will be daydreaming and absent-minded. Caution regarding important discussions. Ya think?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You are the financial wizard of the zodiac, which is why it’s important to know that financial negotiations are likely to be impeded or compromised because of confused communications. A classic example would be acting on an assumption. Double-check everything!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today your ruler Mercury is in your sign (fortunately, no longer retrograde); nevertheless, it is at odds with fuzzy Neptune. This is a bit like having Vaseline on your lens. The meaning of your words is cloudy or foggy. Make sure you know what others expect from you — don’t just assume.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Devious secrets are floating around you. You might be aware of this; you might not be. You might stumble onto secret information or learn something very private about someone. Be careful because you like to gossip over the fence, as it were. Be respectful of the privacy of others.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

When dealing with others, especially in group situations, make sure you are on the same page with everyone else because this is the classic day for confused assumptions. Be clear about what you want from others. Be clear about what they want from you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a tricky day for important discussions with bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs because communications are confusing. People can leap to conclusions or misunderstand what they hear. Be extra clear in your communications especially when dealing with authority figures.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

A powerful teacher or guru-like figure might hold you under his spell. You will be quick to fall for fancy words related to religion, politics or racial issues. There’s a lot of psychobabble going on, so you have to keep your wits about you. Don’t fall for “pie-in-the-sky” thinking.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a poor day for important discussions about inheritances, shared property or disputes about insurance issues because you might not be able to defend your best interests. Yes, this is unusual but it’s true. Your expectations might also be unrealistic. Postpone these discussions for another day.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

In discussion with others, especially partners and close friends, you might let someone get away with murder. For some reason, it’s as if you’ve lost your backbone and you can’t stand up for yourself. You almost want to believe stories that are dubious. Don’t get sucked into anything. This is reality, not a rehearsal.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

At work, be careful about negotiations and business dealings because you could be misled or be the victim of misrepresentation. Wrong information could be due to confused communications, errors or possibly, intentional deception. Yikes!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Romance, parties and social occasions, sports events and playful times with children are subject to confusion and, possibly, deceit today. Someone might choose to withhold information from you. Or you might do this to someone else. Don’t believe everything you hear.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a poor day for important family discussions because, “It’s lies —all lies!” Naturally, this is an exaggeration but family discussions will be confusing, misleading and possibly — yes — possibly stretching the truth. Don’t fall for crocodile tears — something about which you know a thing or two.
