CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t trust everything that someone you are close to tells you. Read between the lines to get to the bottom of a situation that is brewing. A chance to make a change professionally must not be missed due to other people’s needs.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll be in rare form today. You will be emotional, passionate and very in tune with what is going on around you. Deals can be made, lovers appeased and travel plans put into motion. You can take advantage of an opportunity heading your way.
