GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Emotional situations will be difficult to deal with if you aren’t completely honest from beginning to end. Leading someone on or pretending to be something you are not will backfire.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): It’s OK to be different, but pick and choose where, when and why. It may not go over as well among your peers and colleagues as it does at home with family.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get together with the people who share your interests and concerns. Your ability to stabilize a situation that is teetering on shaky ground will put you in charge.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Refuse to be coaxed into a debate that you don’t want to have. Arguing will cause an emotional backlash and leave you feeling down.
