Happy Birthday: Your ideas are good, but they must be kept in perspective so that you don’t overreach yourself and your budget this year. Bide your time and you will reach the success you are looking for late in the year. Do your research and don’t overspend.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Consider getting involved in a competitive sport or anything that challenges you today. You will have the gumption to stay ahead of whoever decides to give you a run for your money.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may find yourself in a tight financial spot if you have loaned money to someone who is irresponsible. Check what legal recourse you might have. Cut your losses and move on.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may not like what you hear today, but don’t let your temper get the better of you. If you have kept secrets, you may be to blame for the way you are being treated.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may find yourself in an awkward position with one of your peers or colleagues. If you feel you can finish a job better by yourself, do so rather than lowering your standards.
