Happy Birthday: It will take your undivided attention coupled with not letting up to make the things happen as you want this year. Change and sacrifice will be necessary. This is not the year to second-guess yourself but rather to focus on your goals and to be relentless in your pursuits.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Things may be a little dicey in your personal life if you have taken on too much or made promises that are hard to keep. A chance to take a short trip or to do something you’ve always wanted to do is likely to come into play.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get together with friends, relatives or neighbors. The discussion you have will help you make the right choices in dealing with those individuals putting demands on you. Be unique but practical.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t get all blown out of shape because not everyone agrees with you. Take the bad with the good and let everyone follow his or her own path. A love issue that has to do with commitment may need to be resolved.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look inward and you will find the answer you are looking for. Personal and professional changes may be required in order to feel satisfied with your life and your future.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Money can be made if you are unique in the way you invest. Cash will come to you through unusual means today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It will be difficult to figure out what the people around you want. You aren’t likely to get a straight answer or be given any reasonable options.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Be willing to take action, not just give orders. It’s what you do, not what you say, that will make a difference today. Love is in the stars and something special will develop.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t follow what everyone else is doing. It’s your uniqueness that will help you get ahead. Put your ideas on paper and plant them firmly in the minds of those who can help.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will have to ride the storm if you stick around home or around the people with whom you are most familiar. Take a breather from your normal routine and branch out for a change. New ideas will help you grow and make better choices.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll be pulled in several different directions today. Emotional issues may not be your favorite to deal with but, if you don’t, you aren’t likely to get anything else accomplished. If you do, you can make a good impression.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t worry too much about what everyone else is doing. The more you do to comfort a loved one or to put a partner’s mind at ease, the better it will be for you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It is your turn to make a few changes that will improve your position, your home and your lifestyle. Don’t be afraid to let others know how you feel and, if someone doesn’t like it, let that person move on.

Do what’s best for yourself.

Birthday Baby: You are a dreamer, an explorer – powerful and imaginative. You are changeable, fickle and well-liked for your brilliance, lust for life and insight.
