Horoscopes: Thursday, June 29, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Boredom lacks the passion of other emotions, but it's just as important. You won't find your peak creativity, originality, or genius without tolerating some.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You lived your story. That doesn't mean you want to tell it to everyone. In fact, you'll be effectively choosey in this regard, waiting for the right audience.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Those who earn big results are the only ones who can afford to talk big, though, because experience has taught them the precariousness of success and the value of modesty, they choose not to.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Love the mess. Frame it as you would the artwork of a beloved young child. In many ways, you are the parent and the child all in one, and you're in need of a little praise and enthusiasm.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may feel you're being put on the spot today. If so, consider moving "the spot" to the side a bit. That will attract a crowd without the same pressures and liabilities of the mainstage productions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The nature of marketing is hype. Since you're being marketed to during every waking hour, use the language of hype in your self-communications. Recognize it for the exaggeration it is.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). True to his methodical, consistent nature, the tortoise wins the race. Plodding ever forward is harder than it looks, especially for the easily distracted (which is everyone) , but it works. You can do this!

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Instead of ruminating about what went wrong, imagine it didn't. Think of yourself as saying and doing it the way you would have liked it to go. This increases your chances of getting it right next time.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you're only partway into the situation, it will take energy from the rest of your life and give you nothing in return. For a proper return, you'll have to ramp up your commitment or get out.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If there's anything you need more of, it's not money or fun, it's meaning. When meaningfully engaged, you become more yourself and more everyone else, melding with the universal mind.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Comfortable ideas about who you are will keep you interacting in a certain way that may or may not benefit you, let alone keep you interested in yourself. Trade comfort for boldness, routine for adventure, worry for curiosity.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you laid down the boundary for your friend, you had a good reason. But the scene has changed and so have both of you. It's time for some new rules that better fit this current incarnation.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 29). You're becoming increasingly informed and in touch with your surroundings and yet you're not completely tied to things as they exist. Parameters change. You'll come into a brand new scene and alter it forever for the better. Affection and devotion will be heaped on you in 2018. Travel figures prominently. Sagittarius and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 3, 38, 34 and 40.
