ARIES (March 21-April 19). When you're rested and cared for, your enthusiasm is naturally strong. If you're feeling less than enthusiastic, don't mistake this for intuition or a judgment about the circumstances. It could just mean you need rest.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Lately, you couldn't care less about what people think of you - which is precisely why you are so well-liked. If you dare to extend an invitation, you'll be most pleased with the response.
