Happy Birthday: Emotional deception will play a role in the way you react and the way others treat you this year. Look past what you want and see people for who they are. Center yourself and make the changes that will position you well for the future. Let the facts, not emotions, be your guide.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Challenge yourself physically to get your heart pumping. Getting together with friends will boost your morale but it will also present you with emotional questions regarding someone you have known for some time. Stay out of an argument.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Allowing yourself to get exhausted will leave you in a vulnerable state mentally, physically and emotionally and could lead to life-altering mistakes. Pamper and protect yourself and learn to say no.
