Happy Birthday: This is the perfect year to take a position of power among your peers or in your community. You can make a difference with your know-how and problem- solving skills. What you do this year will lead to a prosperous future.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Delegate to other people some of the responsibilities you’ve taken on. Consider what it is you really want to do. You’ve got what it takes to get things done, but you needn’t go it alone.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone you work with or used to work with may pose a problem for you. Defend yourself. Romantic opportunities will be yours if you get involved in something you believe in.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t pay too much attention to negative people. You should be getting out and spending time with the friends or colleagues who you know will inspire you. A little romance should develop.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): If someone you live with is giving you a hard time, work on one of your hobbies or get out with friends. Stick up for yourself, but don’t stick around if it means having someone take advantage of you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A friend or relative will be a good sounding board today. Talk about your feelings and put the negative behind you. Pursue new avenues.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be careful with your cash today. Someone may try to get you to donate to a cause. Joint ventures will be a painful experience. Go it alone.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Step back and take a few deep breaths. Don’t feel obligated to make a quick decision. Frazzled nerves will need to be tamed first.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Lots could be going on behind your back. Don’t take everyone at face value. If you suspect something is going on, do a little investigating of your own. Don’t put up with any nonsense.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can contribute something worthwhile to an organization you believe in. You will meet someone who could turn out to be a very prosperous partner in the near future. Listen to the ideas being discussed.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Not everyone will see things your way today. Let go of your need to have everyone’s endorsement. It’s only your approval that’s required.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The more you can communicate with people, the better you will feel about your own ideas and plans. Travel for business will pay off. Someone you meet could alter your opinion.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Give advice, but don’t leave yourself short of cash by helping others. The time to tighten your purse strings is now. Don’t gamble.

Birthday Baby: You are diplomatic and persuasive, and you fascinate others with your grace, charm and confidence. You will follow your dreams. Success is your goal.
