Horoscopes: Friday, June 30, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your mind is working on something important. Cut out artificial noise and false imagery. Solutions are more likely to come from weathered wood and sidewalk cracks than from a digital screen.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Today's problem will bring minds together. There's a riddle to solve, a code to break, or a puzzle to piece together. Teamwork will open the gates.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Most people are afraid to admit what they don't understand, for fear of being the only one. Be courageous enough to speak up: You'll not only learn, but you'll also enlighten others who are too timid.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). How can you keep from being led astray by charismatic leaders acting out of greedy self-interest? Question everything. This isn't the same as cynicism. Be a fact-checker, not a cynic.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Our minds run on images. Images change thought. Thoughts make real things happen. Illusions may not be the same as things that occur in the physical world, but that doesn't make them unreal.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Because you care about helping things grow, you'll go to great lengths to learn the unique environment conducive to growth for each thing you want to help. It will take patience, an open mind, and a zest for experimentation.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When the foundation is strong, the building will weather changes. You can apply this to a project you'll start from scratch. Unfortunately, it won't help the one with the foundation laid long ago.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Marcel Proust suggested that the only paradise is paradise lost. But was that paradise really so idyllic? If it seemed so heavenly at the time that you wouldn't have risked it all for that apple.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You look at the same thing as others and see something entirely different. The world needs your point of view. Maybe you're not ready to share your thoughts yet, but aim on sharing soon. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Be kind to their dreams. If they've given up hope, hold on for them. To keep the faith for another person is a rare and precious gift of friendship. It also helps you hold on to your own dreams.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Don't defer the work until tomorrow. How do you know you'll be in the mood to do the thing tomorrow? You won't. Do it now, while you're also not in the mood. Show "the mood" who's boss.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you're not worried about it, it means you're wise, lucky, or both. "A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone." - H,D, Thoreau

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 30). It's a pivotal moment in your story. In a country of opportunity, much is possible. Reasonable health is all the good fortune you need to create five exciting outcomes over the next 12 months. Some you've been working on for years; two are brand-new. Helpful partners will share your stellar attitude. October brings a windfall. Libra and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 22, 28, and 15.
