Happy Birthday: Know in your heart what it is you want to pursue and don’t wait around for an OK from anyone. You must follow through with your plans this year rather than waiting for someone else. Don’t be afraid to step into the limelight.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Consider your options and think about your future direction. Talk to people who can offer you sage advice about which route to follow.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can impress others with your innovative and proactive approach, so don’t waste time. Line up meetings or at least map out your ideas for future presentations.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let jealousy enter the picture today. Work on yourself. The more you do to lift your spirits, the better you will deal with others.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t try to impress someone you’re interested in with lavish gifts or stretching the truth about yourself. If you aren’t liked for who you are, the person in question probably isn’t for you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Taking a position that will force issues will be to your advantage. Someone is likely to be impressed by what you are trying to do and offer you assistance, friendship or even a partnership.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your personal life will leave you in an emotional mess if you haven’t been taking care of the little things that matter to the ones you love. Consider what your priorities are and make alterations.
