CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Vin Diesel, 40; Martha Reeves, 66; Paul Verhoeven, 69; Nelson Mandela, 89.
Happy Birthday: Communication, travel, education and uprooting yourself, if you must, are all in the picture this year. Getting away or learning something new will lead to a host of ideas, directions and greater stability in the end. A chance to make a difference to someone or something you believe in is apparent.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Look for the obvious and avoid any discord. If you are smart and quick, you can avoid trouble. Money is heading your way, so collect an old debt or consider selling something you no longer have any use for.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You should be spending time with friends, relatives or your lover. It’s time to be sentimental and offer whatever you can to the people who count. You will have plenty of energy, so put it to good use and finish something you left undone.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t fool yourself into thinking everything is perfectly fine when it’s not. Face what’s going on and don’t run from your problems. Nothing will be resolved if you mask or ignore what is taking place.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Change is good and your choices will definitely make a difference to where you find yourself heading in the future. Pick up information, take a course or look into a service or product that you may be interested in as an investment.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Once you get a clear picture of what others are doing and what’s expected of you, you can launch your own unique way of achieving things. An opportunity to hook up with someone who can contribute to a cause you believe in looks promising.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may find yourself going in too many different directions. You can’t do everything, so set priorities and take care of the most important details first. Avoid overindulgent people.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It’s not how much you do or spend, it’s what you do that will genuinely help others. A few quick changes on your part and you will discover that advancement isn’t out of reach. A creative approach to whatever you do will raise interest and the help you need.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Not much will surprise you today. Your determination and unique way of seeing and doing things will lead you to victory. Keep a positive attitude and you will succeed.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be careful what you say to whom. You will get yourself into trouble if you embellish a story or situation. This is not the day to question what others are doing or to be a follower.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you push for what you want, you will get it. Now is the perfect time to negotiate. A financial gain is apparent and the chance to partner with someone who is an excellent candidate for future projects is possible.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t give up on someone you love. Compromise to make things work. Be reasonable and find practical solutions. An opportunity to make a little extra cash is apparent.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You aren’t likely to see things rationally, especially where partnerships and work- related matters are concerned. Before you go to a point of no return, consider what you will be giving up by being stubborn.
Emotions must be kept out of your decisions today.
Birthday Baby: You are practical, in tune and very analytical. Your memory serves you well and your ability to make things happen is second to none.
