Jordan Knight turns 42 on Thursday. The New Kids on the Block lead singer recently took to Twitter to respond to actor Kirk Cameron’s recent anti-gay comments back in March. Fellow NKOTB member and older brother Jonathan Knight came out publicly last year. The two recently have been on tour with boy band contemporaries Backstreet Boys.



A lunar eclipse in Gemini has people blabbing about feelings, revealing too much. Be quiet, attentive and philosophical. Learn what you can.


ARIES  Mar 20-Apr 19
Long bottled-up energy comes out like gangbusters. Focus that into constructive work and exercise, but overdoing it is harmful. Give yourself a break. You need them more than you know.

TAURUS  Apr 20-May 20
Focus on the root of your anxieties and explore constructive solutions and improvements with a confidante. Sometimes things have to unravel a bit to be properly mended. You’ll be OK.

GEMINI  May 21-Jun 20
When little things that worried your mother come back to haunt you look at how her anxieties have seeded your own. Facing that can be challenging, but clarity can make you a lot stronger.

CANCER  Jun 21-Jul 22
Anxiety about your career is exaggerated. Your friends paint an optimistic picture because they’re your friends. Schedule time in the coming weeks for long, warm, soul-nurturing soaks.

LEO  Jul 23-Aug 22
If too much work has you neglecting your partner, make some changes. A recent good run on the job may have ended with you hitting a brick wall. Some time off will give you a fresh start.

VIRGO  Aug 23-Sep 22
You score more points for confidence than for accuracy. You will realize your mistakes even if nobody else does. When you really want to challenge others with information challenge yourself first

LIBRA  Sep 23-Oct 22
Competitiveness pushes you to your limits. Quick reparations will give you credit for honesty and grace. Stewing over problems can undermine your health and credibility.

SCORPIO  Oct 23-Nov 21
Finding others who share your bleak view offers assurance now, but they’ll drag you down later. Find a creative outlet, perhaps scribing a romantic tragedy or dystopian sci-fi story.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22-Dec 20
Honesty with your partner reveals more than either of you wanted to know. Keeping your relationship together requires revising agreements. This will improve things in the long run.

CAPRICORN  Dec 21-Jan 19
Whine about your job with your friends. Take responsibility for your share and then take that back to your boss and colleagues. Well-considered, constructive observations will be appreciated.

AQUARIUS  Jan 20-Feb 18
Make an effort to be kind and thoughtful. The Golden Rule holds up, believe it or not. Some of your insights may reveal more about you than you’d intended.

PISCES  Feb 19-Mar 19
Find friends who will at least listen to your bleak foresights and maybe even believe them. At least get it all off your chest with someone who can sympathize and help you make a plan.
