Happy Birthday: If you work hard, you will receive the rewards — it’s as simple as that. Self-improvement will be a good place to start this year. If you feel good about yourself, you will do a much better job promoting what it is you want to accomplish. You will show everyone exactly what you are made of.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let a deal that sounds too good to be true put you in an awkward position. Take a safe route. A creative project could lead to a new relationship.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t pick a fight with someone you live with. Your stubborn attitude will lead to more trouble than you realize. A change of scenery will do you good.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A friend may need to lean on you, so prepare to give him or her a little reassurance. Popularity will result if you offer suggestions and advice to people who are at a loss.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get moving before you miss out on an opportunity to make some cash. A new job or a raise is apparent if you take the initiative to go after advancement.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t neglect your responsibilities or family members will be extremely upset with you. Spend some time pampering yourself but put family first today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Double-check everything that you are responsible for because someone is likely to make you look bad on purpose if you don’t. Romance will be yours if you take time to engage in a little one-on-one time.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your involvement in organizations will be exciting. Don’t let those who oppose your ideas stop you from following through. This could be the start of something new but prepare to work hard.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t jump to conclusions or react too quickly today. Things will not be as they appear. You can assess the situation with plenty of time to correct anything that needs it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be ready to take on whatever comes your way today. The information you pick up will contribute to what you can do to make extra money.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Proceed with caution today. A contract that someone is offering will not be in your best interest. Hold off and you will do much better.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You probably won’t be too willing to compromise today but, if you do, you will discover how much easier it is to get along with others. Don’t blurt out something that could be offensive to colleagues.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your astute observation will lead to hands-on help and some very worthy introductions to people who may be able to help you with your future goals. Mix business with pleasure.

Birthday Baby: You are sincere, helpful and always concerned about everyone else. You are dedicated and loyal and can easily find a solution to any problem that may crop up.
