Leo: Too much at stake right now


CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Eric Lively, 26; Dean Cain, 41; J.K. Rowling, 42; Wesley Snipes, 45.

Happy Birthday: Stop holding back: Let everyone know where you stand and what you want if you expect to have things turn out to your liking. It’s time to rid yourself of the people who have been slowing you down. An opportunity to get ahead financially is apparent this year, so don’t lose out because you are afraid of change.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Money is what you should be thinking about. An opportunity is present or cash will come to you from an unusual source. Either way, be prepared to follow through responsibly.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t be stubborn or difficult if you want things to happen. Taking positive action will help you along the way but, before you invest too much time and energy, make sure that your ideas are sound.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Everything you put your heart and soul into will bring unusual results. The more you can do to spin the outcome in your favor, the further ahead you will get. Strive to be different if you want the competitive edge.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): It is apparent that you can sign a deal or come into some money you weren’t expecting. You don’t have to share your rewards. Invest in yourself and where you see yourself heading over the next few years.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There is a good chance that someone is leading you astray. Find out for yourself. There is too much on the line to make a mistake now. A friend, lover or child will have an impact on your life.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Talk to your peers about what needs to be done and you’ll quickly discover who is on your side. Your ability to get things done quickly may leave you with the brunt of the work. Don’t get angry; keep things in perspective.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Travel short distances if it will help you finalize something. As long as you are strong about your position, you will drum up whatever help you need. Emotional matters can be resolved.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t kid yourself. If you want to know what’s really going on, ask. Be careful who you deal with and how you handle the people in your life, especially those who are older and demand respect.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may know what you want personally and even professionally but the changes you are inclined to make today will not get it for you. Slow down and reevaluate the process it will take to get where you want to go.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Not everyone will be as sure as you are, so you may have to play hurry-up-and-wait. Don’t let that frustrate you: Do a little financial investigation and you won’t feel like you are falling behind. Love, health and money are all in a high cycle.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Help others and you will get the same in return. Your creative input will help bring about an interesting chain of events. Don’t push others to join in – the fewer people involved, the better it will be for you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You may want to look a little deeper into a relationship you’ve had in the past. If you feel you need to resurrect it, do so, but don’t go over the top. Keep things simple and spell out what you want and how you see things unfolding.

Birthday Baby: You are a perfectionist. You are serious, interested in getting ahead and attracted to the unusual and the unfamiliar. You take action and follow through.
