CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Pete Yorn, 33; Maureen McGovern, 58; Bobbie Gentry, 63; Jerry Van Dyke, 76.
Happy Birthday: As long as you use your head and control your spending habits, everything will fall into place for you this year. Stick to basics and walk away from anyone holding you back. Surround yourself with positive people who are willing to pitch in and help.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today you’ll be lucky in moneymaking, deals, winnings, gifts or finding cash. Have some fun with friends or plan a trip. Pressuring yourself to get things done will lead to anxiety.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ve got everything going for you, so don’t listen to someone nattering about what you should or shouldn’t do. Get together with friends, relatives or neighbors or make travel plans that allow you to mix and mingle with new people.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): An older friend or relative will offer worthwhile guidance. A money idea is likely to pan out if you follow it through to the end. Don’t get involved emotionally with the wrong person.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may have to take a wait- and-see attitude when dealing with a friend, relative or your lover. Finish what you started before you decide to call it a day. Work has to come first, even though you are heading into a weekend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Chill out, relax and take a much-needed break. If you don’t, you will have problems controlling your anger. Keep a lid on the way you feel about things at work. A money deal is not likely to pan out.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A change in a personal life may leave you surprised when really you should be thanking your lucky stars. You have plenty to look forward to if you can only rid yourself of the responsibilities you should have never taken on in the first place.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Prepare yourself for opposition. Not everyone will agree with you or want your advice. Don’t let that stop you from following through on your own. It may be more work but will turn out in your favor.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your life may need an adjustment. Reevaluate your position. Your ability to share your thoughts and articulate how you see things in the future will help you improve your situation personally and professionally.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be your own worst enemy today. Problems while traveling and when communicating with others will keep you on your toes. Your outlook may not be that realistic, so you may want to question your motives and your plans.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is a money day for you. Real estate ventures, a gift-winning or settlement all look positive but don’t spend before you have the cash in hand. Your high energy and active part in family affairs, renovations or household chores will be impressive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Talks may very well lead to arguments if you aren’t willing to budge. Be fair, especially if you are dealing with someone who has been going through a rough time. Offer help, not criticism.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): An opportunity looks good but negotiate your position and hold out for what you want. The distance that you have to travel may play an important role later on, causing you financial worry. A change of heart will put you in a better position personally.
Birthday Baby: You are astute, observant and can change quickly to suit whatever you face. You are a doer who never gives in when you truly believe in what you are doing. You are forceful, attentive and affectionate.
