Happy Birthday: Your desire to learn all you can and to apply it to whatever you pursue this year will lead to the kinds of results you have been missing out on in the past. You will be in the right frame of mind to make personal improvements. That will enable you to make a greater impact on those with whom you share your ideas, plans and intentions.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take the smart approach today and keep your findings to yourself. The less time you spend talking and the more time doing, the further ahead you will get.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone you used to have a crush on may come into your life if you frequent places you both used to go. Get involved in the politics of a cause you believe in. A new you is evolving.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Avoid controversial topics today. This is not the day to question someone you work for or live with. Focus on what you can do by yourself and don’t labor over poor relationships.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take time out to do something special with someone you love. This is a perfect day to recycle some of the ideas you had many years ago. Take a short trip.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll be very astute and likely to pick up any negative response sent your way. Be careful how you handle the situation. Listen to complaints, but don’t be critical.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Tread carefully: Someone will not be thinking of your best interests today. Prepare to deal with unpredictable individuals. You can make a financial gain if you check out property investments.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Business deals or new jobs will spring from nowhere today. Sudden changes will take you by surprise. Be prepared. Your insight should give you an edge.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep it to yourself if you don’t have something nice to say. Compassion and support will bring far better results even if you don’t feel much like offering either.

Birthday Baby: You will never back down from anyone or anything. You believe in yourself and your dreams. You are a thinker and will always create your own unique strategy.
