Happy Birthday: Stop putting your own needs on the back burner and start doing what’s best for you. It’s time to stop being a martyr and start being a winner. This is your year to do what you want to do. You will end up gaining respect from the very people who were holding you back.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’ll end up in an awkward position if you’ve been brutally honest and outspoken. Brace yourself, as opposition is likely if you have been a little uncaring or harsh.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Act quickly and finish as much as possible early in the day. You will have the strength and the desire to outmaneuver any competition you encounter.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You need to save rather than spend money today. You’ve been too generous with others and too extravagant with yourself. It’s time to budget.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will be hard to read today. One minute you’ll be happy and the next you’ll be upset. You are likely to take things the wrong way today. Sudden changes in your home will be a little unnerving.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There is a good chance that someone is just playing with your emotions. If someone isn’t treating you properly, be prepared to cut him or her out of your life.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t hesitate. When you get the opportunity to do something worthwhile for others, take the plunge. Involvement with a group that has the same beliefs and standards as you will be to your advantage.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Be careful what you wish for today. You may be striving to obtain one thing and you may get something completely different. Focus on money, work and getting ahead.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Expand your knowledge and learn about different cultures and traditions. The more you discover, the better you will understand. Your excellent memory will help you with projects.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may have to do a little finagling if you haven’t been paying enough attention to loved ones. It’s time to put everything else aside and nurture the relationships that mean the most to you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This day will get progressively more exciting. Socialize if you wish to meet new friends or lovers, but if you want to nurture an existing relationship, focus on the person you want to impress.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Use your imagination and you will accomplish the most today. Being creative will inspire you to follow a direction that you have only dreamed of in the past.

Birthday Baby: You will always look out for the underdog and you will be there when no one else is willing to go the distance. You will prove your strength of character and will gain the respect of those you encounter.
