GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take casual assurances about a business matter with a grain of salt. A partner or friend may be anxious to avoid conflict and agree with just about anything to keep the peace. Accept that there aren't any ironclad guarantees. 

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Tie up loose ends so that your routines are easier to handle. Look around for unique entertainments or events that will get a partner up off the couch and give the two of you something to enjoy as a couple.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: During the upcoming two to three weeks, your circle of friends will keep your social life humming along. By November, you may be in the mood for less talk and more action. Your extra energy can be funneled into constructive activities such as clearing out the garage or building cold frames for the garden. December may offer a break from the ordinary because you have time for a vacation or a family visit. You may want to maintain a low profile in January and February, as your fortune is at a low point. In January, your ability to make financial decisions is impaired, so don't make investments or changes to your business plan. In February, authority figures could be more exacting than usual, so be sure to follow the rules.
