The Aries moon is a hothead, suggesting that fireworks that fall from the sky will not be the only kind seen on this American Independence Day. Tempers flare, but so do passions. The intense energy can be used for good when you take control and guide the action toward a higher purpose. People want to be involved in a fulfilling service to others.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Going forward doesn't always mean going alone. In this case, you have a friend who will go with you to offer assistance and insight. It's a good thing, because this is a task you can't do by yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You might not always have the right thing to say, but you always try. Sometimes your effort prevails, and sometimes you fall flat on your face. But then you have a good story. Today your effort prevails.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Like a pair of vintage shoes that completes a perfect ensemble, your past makes your present personality all the more loveable. You're a good egg, but a real egg, and everyone likes that.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). At this fork in the road, you can see that one path continues, smooth and flat. The other immediately starts heading uphill. Both are fine choices, but one will offer a better view when you get to the end of it.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Reminiscing about old times is like watching your favorite TV show with you as the star -- or at least as one of the main characters. Today a fond memory will tap on the door of your heart.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your reflection in the mirror must have slept well, because it looks great today. A perceptible aura of good health and positive energy is hovering around you, in your eyes, your skin and your smile.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You've been working steadily to repay a debt. You're not there yet. Sit back for a moment and congratulate yourself on the progress you've made thus far. A fiscally conservative indulgence might not be out of the question.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Potential attitude-dampers abound. However, your mental activity is strong enough to overcome your physical state. You'll get more energy because you'll think energetic thoughts.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). "Living on the edge" is a better phrase than it is a life plan. When today you see someone behaving recklessly, you are reminded of what you used to be, and of what you're not now.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Like a pesky mosquito, there is an irritating problem hovering around that you just can't seem to defeat. Wait a moment. It will play right into your hands, and you'll get it for good with one swipe.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). World affairs may be a mess, but at least your own household is running smoothly. If more people had your good habits, the world would be better off. Someone notices this aloud.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You decide to swallow a witty but potentially off-putting comment before it leaves your mouth. There's a time and a place for mischief, but offending the wrong person can have lasting consequences. So, wise move.


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 4). Even though you enjoy chunks of leisure time this year, you will mostly be in a highly productive mode. You'll motivate others, who see you achieving your goals. New people are attracted to your warmth in September. You could join a club, church or political party. There will be an important wedding in December. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 33, 15, 44 and 18.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Uranus takes an average of seven years to travel through one zodiac sign. That is why he is considered a generational planet -- the energy of this slow, frozen giant is reflected in the attitude of entire generations. His current mood -- having newly entered the sign of Aries, the warrior -- is rambunctious. Babies born after May 27, 2010, will have no shortage of energy and passion to pour into their endeavors, especially when those endeavors involve shaking up the status quo. Yes, Uranus is wily these days, and he'll reverse on July 5 just to prove the point. He's only at the starting point of the zodiac wheel, and already he's ready to review what's happened and make a better plan. Uranus in Aries will be surprising -- if not chaotic and tumultuous -- in its rebellion against the old ways. So it will be a bit of a relief when Uranus slips back into Pisces in August for a mellower journey and doesn't return to Aries until March of next year.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: It is customary in many countries for women to take on the surname of their husband, and the rule seldom goes the other way. Never the conformist, moonchild Jack White, who was born "John Gillis," took his former wife, Meg White's, last name and has kept it ever since. This mysterious Cancer musician and record producer was born under a soulful Cancer moon.
