Billy Campbell turns 52 on Thursday. Campbell has everyone swooning as Darren Richmond in The Killing.

Mercury in Leo, cranking up egos and voices, is at the end of a “yod” with Pluto and Chiron. The real challenge is to shut up, listen and adapt to difficult new realities. Venus making a T-square to Uranus and Pluto stresses relationships, forcing major adaptation. Your work is cut out!
CANCER Jun 21-Jul 22
Venus in your sign makes you more attractive, but not necessarily to whom you want to attract. Stick to your standards. A philosophical sense of humor gets you through awkward advances.
LEO Jul 23-Aug 22
Clear the air and explore new ideas. Just be careful when and where. Once you have those ideas honed and polished your boss will probably love them.
VIRGO Aug 23-Sep 22
Whatever you’re worried about, face it directly. Discussing it with your partner could solve it. If words fail you, try round one in the bedroom.
LIBRA Sep 23-Oct 22
Worrying about family and relations holds back your career, but understanding them will strengthen you. It’s all in your attitude and knowing how empowering your roots really are.
SCORPIO Oct 23-Nov 21
There is pleasure in getting to the truth of the matter, but doing so is disruptive to personal and work relationships. Conspire with your potential allies in your search for understanding.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 22-Dec 20
Be challenged by new ideas. Consider them and see how they might be constructively applied. You love your theories, but practical experience is what proves truth and value.
CAPRICORN Dec 21-Jan 19
Asserting yourself creates disaster at home. Pay attention and be ready to adapt. It may take sacrifice, probably of some aspect of your ego, but willingness to transform will save you.
AQUARIUS Jan 20-Feb 18
Pay close attention to what your partner has to say. You don’t have to agree; you do have to think about it. Affirming roots gives you the strength to make necessary changes.
PISCES Feb 19-Mar 19
Changes at work are a blessing in disguise. Friends’ advice that you don’t like will prove most helpful. It may need more discussion for you to fully understand. Keep an open mind.
ARIES Mar 20-Apr 19
Brash overconfidence gets you into trouble. You have what it takes, but consider what your strongest virtues are. A little humility will give you perspective and enhance your strengths.
TAURUS Apr 20-May 20
You get away with anything, but second-guessing yourself ruins this lucky streak. Don’t get trapped in dawdling. Stay clear on your ideals and they will pull you through.
GEMINI May 21-Jun 20
Your mouth gets you in trouble. Trust in your friends for appropriate guidelines. Meditative reflection is helpful, not just for verbal discipline, but for clarity in professional goals and partnership.
