HOROSCOPE

While it is always difficult to find the right career, your natural abilities will give you several options to explore. Traditional careers such as teaching, business or public relations could pair well with your intellect and gifts for communication. If you are drawn to the world of entertainment, you may share in the irresistible qualities of Angelina Jolie, who was also born on June 4th. In whichever career you choose, use your charms to create laughter among your coworkers, much like Russel Brand, another of your birthday twins.
