CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Natasha Hamilton, 25; J. Michael Straczynski, 53; Phoebe Snow, 55; Donald Sutherland, 72.
Happy Birthday: You have a way of putting things that will get you further ahead, so don’t keep things to yourself. Speak up and don’t be afraid of change. You don’t have to do things on a big scale but subtle moves will take others by surprise and make a huge impact.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Pay attention to detail. A change regarding your work or someone you work with will put you on guard. Don’t underestimate the size of a job or the cost involved. Do your research.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taking a fresh look at something or someone will help you determine what you should do next. An emotional problem with an older or younger friend or relative will occupy time. Allow yourself room to maneuver.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look for alternatives before you give in to something or someone you don’t fully agree with. An opportunity to partner will only be to your advantage if you don’t have to give up too much. Work from home if possible.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may be tempted to take off or to visit someone you haven’t seen in a while. Do so for the right reasons and you won’t be disappointed. If you can mix business with pleasure, you will be that much further ahead of the game.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): People around you will be willing to help you but, before you take anyone up on an offer that sounds too good to be true, find out what’s required of you in return. Your efforts alone will bring a good return.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may not be able to control what’s going on around you but you can forge ahead and do your own thing with confidence. Work hard and you will avoid some of the turmoil going on in your personal life.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen to what others have to say. Help is on the way but, before you accept it, determine how much of your own time you want to contribute and if it is worth your while. Follow your intuition and you will make the right choice.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take a stab at something you’ve wanted to try for some time and you will be surprised how well you do. You have to have more faith in your own ability. Now is the time to go it alone, not carrying someone on your back.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t even consider doing something that is going to cost you. You will get yourself and those you care about into trouble financially if you are frivolous. Travel or dealing with authority figures will not turn out in your favor.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Money can be made and deals struck today. Change will be good and will help support your beliefs and what you see yourself doing in the future. Love is in the stars.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are probably in need of a change personally, physically and mentally. Don’t stop short of doing what’s necessary because you are lazy, afraid or unsure. Ask a trusted friend for a little hands-on help and you will be able to go the distance.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will be unpredictable, changeable and unable to make up your mind today. Don’t sell yourself short but also don’t miss out on something because you are too stubborn. Overreacting, overindulging and overspending will be your downfall.
Birthday Baby: You are independent and quick to jump from one thing to another. You assess quickly and do whatever is necessary to fix any problems that come your way.
