Set your standards high and put your time, effort and energy into worthwhile projects that will bring you the returns you desire. Controversy will surround you but, the result of what you do and say will be much-needed reform.

 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Interact as much as you can with friends, peers and neighbors and you will accomplish some of your goals for change, reform and implementing new activities. Love is on the rise and will take you on an emotional but worthwhile detour.

 TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take care of business and do something nice to ensure that an old relationship you may have taken for granted is solid, secure and growing. Consider how you can cut back at home and make an effort to bank more.

 GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Focus on friendships, sharing information and traveling about looking for items you need to further a project. Networking with people who have something to offer in return will make your job that much easier. 

CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you are too sensitive, you will end up in an argument that can make you look bad. It’s what you accomplish that will count. Don’t let a personal matter cause you to overlook something that needs your attention. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A sudden turn of events will give you the boost you’ve been waiting for. Good connections and informative discussions will provide you with an edge. Love is in the stars. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Taking something you do well and giving it a unique appeal will lead to profits. Uncertainty will be the enemy. Your help will be well received and will, in turn, bring you the support you need to follow your own goals.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take any opportunity you get to make changes to your home and routine. A move or property deal will bring benefits you may not be able to see at first. Change is heading your way and you must embrace it with open arms. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Productivity should lead to a better situation at home. A financial deal can turn things around for you if you don’t spend unwisely. Love is on the rise and can lead to an entertaining evening if you aren’t too pushy. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Slow down and you will avoid making a costly mistake. A problem with someone you are close to will leave you wondering what to do or say next. You’ll get caught in the crossfire if you take sides or meddle. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s time to shake things up. If you look at your past, it will be easy to see what needs to be done. A new chance at love is apparent if you let your charm lead the way. You can achieve greater security and stability in your life with a little effort.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Avoid getting involved in a heated and very emotional discussion that will lead to personal indecisiveness. Consider the cost involved. You can gain some clout by using reverse psychology and your Pisces charm. 

Birthday Baby: You are a doer who welcomes a challenge and thrives on change. You are intelligent, aggressive and will not back down. You are a born leader.
