Welcome to the last day of the season. It's the final countdown to the movement of the sun into Cancer. The summer solstice has been such a big deal historically that it's been celebrated with monuments built by ancient cultures all over the globe. Thousands of years ago, people just like us started gathering in anticipation of tomorrow's event.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll put quite a lot of thought into a gift. You want it to be appropriate and yet slightly surprising. Take your time. Think it through, and you'll hit just the right note.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You balance your independence and interdependence so well, operating as a one-person operation when you need to and a cog in the wheel of humanity when you don't.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your powerful radar extends from your heart to the hearts of those around you. You don't have to know a person to recognize their pain and be a part of their healing.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your attention is a precious commodity that you nonetheless give quite generously to your loved ones. They are, in fact, spoiled by the many benefits bestowed by your listening ears and the pupils of your eyes.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As dancers know, in a kick line, it's important that the entire chorus of dancers hit the same mark with their leg extension. It just looks better that way. In the name of conformity, you'll save your high kicks for later.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Though you are always communicating, you're not always aware of what. Your message will be imparted without words now. You say it all with action and lifestyle.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're tough and resilient. Why? A lot of it is your sense of humor. It's hard to say which came first, the laughs or the hardship, but you've found a way to bring them together.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). All the good jobs will go to the eager volunteers. You'll be one of them. Responsibility doesn't scare you. Your hand goes right up. Do well, and this is only the start.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don't know what connects you with someone, though you can be sure there is an important and mysterious reason you converge in this same place and time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Doing what is responsible doesn't always seem like a lot of fun, but there's a way to make the medicine more palatable, Mary Poppins style, with a spoonful of sugar.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Willpower can be hard to come by, which is why today's starry boon is wonderful. An infusion of cosmic willpower will help you ignore the discomfort of self-discipline so you don't have to suffer the pain of regret.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Dented cars show their history of collision while the patched cars move on as if nothing bad ever happened. You're wise to be on the lookout for signs of repair.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 19). You are as young as your dreams, which happen to be particularly youthful. It's as though you never lost the innocence of your first imaginings of what you would be in this life. This year proves you will fulfill them yet. Next month brings a surprise that sends you on a new trajectory. Friends help with a vital project. Virgo and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 4, 13, 2 and 18.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Love sends you on a mission that may include exercise, reading, meditation and extreme self-care. TAURUS: Your heart caries a question of love, and your mind finds a way to answer it. GEMINI: Sometimes you have to investigate the extremes of culture to realize how normal you are. CANCER: To understand what you do for another person is to understand love. LEO: Playing together builds bonds. Working together builds bonds even stronger. VIRGO: Just as the value of gold is measured in pounds, the value of words is measured in the emotional weight they deliver. LIBRA: For an event to be a memory, it has to be different from anything that comes before or after it. SCORPIO: Nothing good comes of forcing yourself into a situation to please those around you. SAGITTARIUS: You're a new person when new people are in your presence. That's why getting out, even digitally, is so interesting. CAPRICORN: You cannot unlive any of your love life, but you can think of it differently, which is what you'll do now. AQUARIUS: You'll take a trip down memory lane, and it will be a little like cropping a picture and keeping the best parts of the image in frame. PISCES: In love, learning from your mistakes is everything.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Can two Cancers make it as a couple on planet Earth? Sure! The secret is that two moons are better off with a common orbit. There are plenty of planets with multiple moons. Mars has two. Jupiter has over 60 and counting. Common interests are the common orbits that apply here. A double-cancer couple will thrive with the glue of a joint hobby or responsibility, desire or obsession.
