CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: River Phoenix, Shelley Long, Rick Springfield, Barbara Eden.

Happy Birthday: Your creative cycle is high and you really need to focus on developing your ideas and broadening your business base this year. A tight budget coupled with a strong work ethic and continuous promotion will bring you the credit you want.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Now is the time to get that hobby you’ve been meaning to start off the ground. You should be able to find a bargain if you shop around today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Changes regarding your finances may startle you. Do a count of what you actually have, what you owe and how you can save a little extra.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Emotional matters will surface today. Be careful how you handle any delicate situations that you face.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep a close eye on the people you are working with. Someone may not pull his or her weight. Take charge and delegate — you may not be popular, but the job will get done.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep a low profile early in the day and you will get your way later on. By playing the role of the friendly observer you will gain valuable information and build yourself a strong foothold of support.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Flying off the handle or pointing your finger at someone will not bring favorable results. Problems with family and friends will leave you feeling alone.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may face some opposition from your peers, but continue to move forward with your plans. Talk to a trusted friend before making your final decision.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may be asked to contribute financially to something that may be dubious. Check out the group; you can probably do a better job yourself for less money.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will be eager to spend time with someone who makes your heart beat faster. Make special plans, but be sure that it is something that you both enjoy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may be a little confused by the information you are given today. Prepare to do your own research and keep money matters to yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Lots will happen today if you are interactive with people who have similar interests. It’s up to you to start the ball rolling. This is the perfect day to make new friends.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is not the best day to trust what others try to lead you to believe. Work on something you can do alone and develop one of your ideas or concepts.

Birthday Baby: There are two sides to you: a quiet, observant side and a very adventurous side. You show great empathy for others, but you are also strong-willed and won’t take no for an answer.
