Horoscopes: Thursday, June 22, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The examples and ideas that come to mind are the most available, not necessarily the best or most accurate. For the best results, question and test everything.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Perhaps there is more affecting the outcome than you imagine. Try not to get too attached to a particular vision of the end result. Once you free yourself from expectation, you'll be able to handle and enjoy what comes.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To be literal in your interpretation of what is directed to you is to miss the intention of almost everything. People rarely say what they mean. Feel the tone.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Attraction is the glue of the universe. Desire brings things into being. If you feel needy, if you are wanting, if you are a slave to your cravings, find the creative force in this and let it power you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes we don't want what's good for us. The more we want something, the less wise we become. Back off. Don't ask, "Will I?" before you ask, "Should I?"

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you learn from every scenario, the more scenarios you live, the more you'll learn. So when the question of whether to go or stay arises, if your aim is to be wiser, the answer is usually to go.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though you value sincerity, you also see the value in its opposite, which today amounts to someone's creative way of assembling the information in order to accomplish the greater good.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You admire those who are better prepared, but don't let that stop you from jumping in and doing your best with whatever you have and wherever you are.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Conversations have a way of getting off track as people keep talking to try to make a connection that may never be. Keep it brief, say what you need to say, and then leave and let it sink in.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Tremendous rationality can have dull your senses. This has been a theme for you lately and the cosmic challenge really comes to a peak today. Use your feelings; choose your heart.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This is no time to start falling in line. You could save the day by marching to your own drum. Give yourself the leeway to mess around, try things on and poke your nose into the parts of it that don't seem meant for you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). To rebel is a natural urge. Without it there's no progress. Remember this when - for reasons you can't explain - you want to overturn the authority (even if said authority is only a voice in your own head).

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 22). Peace comes with this solar return. You will trust in the benevolence of the universe, and your trust will be well-placed. Next month brings a creative wave. A political change (perhaps along the lines of neighborhood or family politics) will favor you in September. You'll make money in August and March. Scorpio and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 28, 50, 11 and 34.
