Today’s horoscopes - Sunday, June 18


ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you go above and beyond anything asked of you, you will achieve it. Then you will be expected to achieve it regularly. Think carefully before you show off, as it might turn you into an indentured servant.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Not everyone is going to like the way you show up and declare yourself and make room to be you. If you have a few dissenters, it’s in no way a bad sign. In fact, it just might be a sign that you’re doing it right.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Maybe some of the others can’t make up their minds, but you certainly can, and you will today. Don’t let anyone sway your choice. There will be no regrets when it’s yours and yours entirely.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The bird’s wing evolved to find the support of the air, and you have grown to find the support of those who can lift your spirits. Without them, it won’t work. Find them before you launch.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Unless you’re talking about a line at the grocery or a theme park, faster isn’t better. Furthermore, if you’re doing fast what should really be accomplished slowly, you’ll miss today’s big prize.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Curtains will open to a fresh setting, and you’ll delight in seeing some of your favorite people interact there. Truly, an environment can influence people in unexpected ways, bringing out new facets, highs and lows.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Do you need an entourage? Would it benefit you to show up as more of an entity than a person? No. You’ll accomplish more as a lone wolf, free to move where the opportunities are.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What puzzled you will be a mystery no longer. The solution, once revealed, seems like an inevitable one. You may wonder why you didn’t see it before or know it all along.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Don’t worry about having enough time to accomplish your goal; you’ll get all you need, as long as you commit to making adequate use of all the time you’ve been given.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Cynicism goes with cowardice. The brave ones who know what it’s like to make a valiant effort and also to fail for a while before having any kind of success are usually not the cynics in the crowd.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Shakespeare suggested that a loan to a friend usually loses both the money and the friend. To be on the safe side, it’s better to give a gift to your loved one than anything you might want back later.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The current conceptions will be challenged. This is not, in and of itself, progress; however, no progress will be made without it. If you’re censoring yourself, it’s time to look at why — and whether you really should be.
