CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Lindsay Lohan, 21; Michelle Branch, 24; Jose Canseco, 43; Richard Petty, 70.
Happy Birthday: You are about to enter a new phase. Good things are heading your way and the only way to gain experience will be to forge ahead. Love, romance and intrigue can all be yours if you are willing to open up and take a chance.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take the weight of the world off your shoulders and realize you don’t have to go it alone or take on everyone else’s responsibilities. Delegate who has to do what and although you will be faced with some disgruntled helpers, everything will turn out fine.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will be emotionally up and down, putting the blame on everyone but yourself. Forget about getting things organized or done and, instead, cut yourself some slack. Spend the day in ways that will calm you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can do no wrong if you pay extra attention to someone in need or to an organization you are affiliated with. You will feel the need to become more serious regarding your love life and where you see it heading this year.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t take anything too seriously today. A lighthearted approach will enable you to size up what’s actually going on and how everyone around you is reacting. Avoid impulsive purchases and emotional decisions.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may feel anxious but don’t let that cause you to do something irrational. Bide your time and let things unfold naturally. Make social plans that will allow you to hook up with people who can help you further your goals.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone may cause problems by changing his or her mind and your plans. Have an alternative in place. Someone you have been able to count on in the past will come to your rescue if you ask for assistance.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may confuse some people and get a rise out of others today but, if you don’t make waves, you haven’t done your job all that well. Don’t procrastinate or back down if there is something you really want to do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may not like what you hear or what you see today but that doesn’t mean you should fight back. Don’t waste your time on someone who isn’t going to budge.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take another look at your credentials. It’s never too late to make a change or a move but be sure you understand what you will get in the end and that you truly want it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you can’t fix something with relative ease, consider what you can do instead. Putting more into something that isn’t working will be a waste of time and money. Emotional confusion will only set you back, so let it go.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Someone may be looking for a commitment or an answer from you today. Do your best to explain your situation but don’t show anger, disappointment or frustration.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Something is probably going on behind your back or you are trying to keep secrets from someone else. Either way, it spells disaster. Take the straight and narrow approach so you don’t end up looking bad.
Birthday Baby: You are quick to react and rise to whatever occasion beckons you. You are a lover and a doer – captivating, passionate and eager to please.
