IF JUNE 5 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: During the next seven to eight weeks, you may find your social calendar filling up with group outings and activities if you choose. Avoid starting a new romantic relationship or crucial projects in late July when egos could clash and emotional outbursts could trigger you or someone else and create difficulties. The first week of August, however, could be an excellent time to focus on financial stability while enhanced down-to-earth thinking gives you the advantage. Your creative and imaginative ideas could be worth noting in late October when a relaxing vacation or weekend break can give you a chance for romantic evenings. Wait until December, when your judgment is sound and opportunities for advancement are more likely, to put key plans and schemes into motion.
