CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Channing Tatum, 30; Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, 40; Michael Damian, 48; Carol Burnett, 77.
Happy Birthday: Opportunities are open to you but you must get the ball rolling. Don’t let your own uncertainty hold you back. There is plenty to gain if you stay mellow, do your own thing and refuse to get involved in other people’s petty problems. Keeping a level head and staying focused on your own endeavors will lead to your success.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): The easier you are to get along with, the more you will accomplish. Put your efforts into doing a good job and being a team player and you will make gains far beyond your expectations. Listen and you will learn something valuable.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You don’t have to make a fast decision or follow what someone else is doing if you feel uneasy. Minor mishaps can be prevented if you are careful. Being self-sufficient is a must.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look at the bright side of any situation you face and you will sway others to think the same as you. Laziness or trying to get others to do things for you will be your only mistake. Do your best and you’ll attract contributors and assistance.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t get worked up with the excitement going on around you. Watch, listen and base your moves on what you want to see happen. An emotional issue can cloud your vision, causing you to miss out on a great opportunity.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your communication skills will not be stellar so, before you confront a situation that is bothering you, think matters through thoroughly. Once you disclose your ideas and thoughts, you will be open to criticism. Networking will be worthwhile.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t shy away from a responsibility that has the potential to bring you more clout and control. An opportunity to make a financial gain looks promising. Make a couple of changes to your portfolio and a partnership.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Be careful not to reveal too much information. Emotional matters will escalate if you discuss your plans with someone who doesn’t agree with you. Concentrate on a creative project that will take your mind off your worries.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t waffle when you should be moving full steam ahead. Your fear is holding you back and, until you are ready to put that aside, you can’t move forward. Sitting idle will be your downfall.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may have to take care of responsibilities that don’t belong to you or make changes that will limit your time. Look at the bright side and realize the positive side of your situation. You are likely to meet or start collaborating with someone who complements your plans.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Now is not the time to push or pick fights. Efforts put in at home or to improve your surroundings or your financial situation should be at the top of your to-do list. Talk with a trusted friend.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Good fortune and a favorable connection with someone you find interesting can change your life positively. It may be time to change your lifestyle or at least to look into ways that you can improve your current situation. Love is in the stars.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Uncertainty will prevail but that shouldn’t stop you from checking out alternatives and potential opportunities. A close relationship you have may be in jeopardy if either one of you is not being completely honest.
Birthday Baby: You are hardheaded, aggressive and know what you want. You are a loyal friend, have strong beliefs and maintain your values.
