BIRTHDAY GAL: Actress Minka Kelly was born in Los Angeles today in 1980. This birthday gal is probably best known for starring as Lyla Garrity on "Friday Night Lights." She appears in a recurring role on "Parenthood" and guest-starred on an episode of "Entourage." Her film credits include "The Roommate," "(500) Days Of Summer" and "The Kingdom."
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dust off your discrimination. Some people just love the idea of being in love and aren't too picky about who or what they love. You should be cautious about relationships based on vague romantic notions.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look for lasting treasures, not fleeting fads. Your friendly attitude that treats everyone fairly but formally might spark admiration from admirers -- although not all honeyed words you hear are true.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Unless you are flying a kite and expect to have strings attached, avoid entering into new agreements or contracts. Romantic misunderstandings are possible so make sure you explain every step and detail.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Houston, you have a problem. Your highly original ideas might seem very alien to others. You may be accused of having your head in outer space if you try to lead a revolt against tried and true conventions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Let the past lead you to the future. Co-workers might provide unexpected amusement. You may have more fun talking about joint ambitions with a significant other than hitting the local watering holes.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The ugly truth cannot be airbrushed out of the picture. You may be willing to overlook imperfections and inadequacies in order to meet someone who will fulfill your ideal of love and affection.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Fairy tales are fractured. You might meet a new admirer who has sipped a love potion and is ready to fall in love with the first person met. If you recall your fairy tales, think about how that worked out.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Relax, unwind, clear your mind -- and meditate. Amorous designs may be on the drawing board, but it is best to focus on existing relationships. A new connection formed now could prove troublesome.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): People may seem sympathetic, but you might not know what they really think. Your best tactic under these stars is to keep new acquaintances at arm's length and treat everyone with equal respect.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Darth Vader might be victorious. The Force will not be with you if you make amorous advances or initiate investments. On the other hand, you will do well in group settings or at community gatherings.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It is only safe to do window shopping. An impetuous purchase or a new romantic alliance could prove unsatisfactory. Things that attract you this weekend may not last or turn out to be as advertised.
IF JUNE 24 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Expect an extended period of popularity leading to romantic and career success in the year to come. Avoid taking on new responsibilities, getting involved with new partners or signing agreements or contracts during the last week of July or first week of August. A new job or relationship could turn your life upside down in late August or September. Wait to put your deepest desires into motion during the last week of September or first week of October if you want your enterprises to prosper. You are likely to experience good luck and could receive unexpected help during that time, so it is possible that crucial prayers will be answered.
