CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Billy Zane, 46; Debra Jo Rupp, 61; Helen Shaver, 61; Edward James Olmos, 65.

Happy Birthday: Keep your plans a secret if you want to avoid opposition. It will be difficult to get along with people who have a different agenda. Getting worked up will not benefit your cause or impress the people you need on your team. Size up your situation and make clean-cut changes before someone beats you to it.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Settle down before you make a mistake. Misunderstandings are apparent, and emotional upset will escalate. Counteract your impulsive reactions by keeping busy and steering clear of anyone who may get your dander up. Make love, not war.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put more effort into friendships, learning and expanding your interests. The more you do for others, the better you will feel about who you are and what you are capable of doing. A new beginning will change your life.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do for others what you expect in return. Don’t give in to anyone trying to make you look bad. Rise above controversy and make the most of your day by using your skills and charm to win favors and excel.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Follow through with a creative idea, or sign up for a class that will allow you to use your imagination. Communicate to bring about changes you feel are necessary to a healthy relationship with a friend, relative or neighbor.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Live a little, and bring some excitement into your life. A last-minute change of plans or visiting a place you’ve never been before will be a great catalyst to get you moving in a new direction. Love and romance are highlighted.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put more emphasis on money matters and how you can make assets grow and liabilities disappear. Change is required and opportunity is present, so don’t hesitate to take advantage of a chance to stabilize your future.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t give in to intimidation. Take control and make up your own mind regarding what you want and how you are going to get it. Re-evaluate an important relationship. Equality will help rekindle the connection.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Get in touch with people you have worked with in the past. Don’t let the expectations of others get you down. You have to do what works best for you. Experience will help you make the right choice now.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Making a lifestyle change and hanging out with different people will do you good. A chance to try something new or to put your skills to work is apparent. Once you get started, many doors will open. Love is on the rise.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be honest about your capabilities. If you cannot live up to the picture you’ve painted, you will ruin your chance to work with someone special. Your willingness to take direction and learn from others will make a difference.
