Happy Birthday: You may face a little controversy this year if you have been chasing something or someone that can’t be caught. It’s time to put things behind you and realize what you have to offer and what you can do with your future.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep a closer eye on what everyone around you is doing. Someone may unintentionally put you in a compromising position. Stay calm – if you overreact, you will never be able to convince others of your true position.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Everything is turning around for you today. The more you rely on the favors owed to you, the further you will get. You have plenty to look forward to if you just take charge of your future. Love is evident.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may not realize what you are getting yourself into today. Take it slow and make sure you understand all the implications. You may be lacking important information that could alter your decision.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will have the fortitude to undertake a major project. The more you accomplish, the more time you will have to spend with someone you enjoy. Spending time with like- minded people should be your goal.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you really want to accomplish something, this is not the day to be lazy. Prepare for the upcoming week to make the most of an opportunity that appears to be coming your way.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You will have the upper hand today. Doing things with friends, family or children will all be to your advantage. A change in your appearance will bring favorable compliments. Love is in a high cycle.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Not everyone will be looking out for your best interests today. Take note of who does what and why so you have the facts. It is the time to control what’s going on around you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Patience should be paying off today. You should have lots of creative ideas and plenty of opportunities to execute them. Getting together with a good friend will allow you to bounce your ideas off him or her.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be questioning your direction today. If you aren’t happy with the way things have been going professionally, financially or even personally, take time to consider what you can do to turn things around.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Everything may be riding on a decision you make today. Think things through from beginning to end before you proceed. The pros and cons will be close, but once you take a look at the big picture you will realize what’s best for you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Someone from your past will be able to help you follow one of your dreams. The chance to travel or visit some places you used to frequent will lead to a chance meeting with someone who will influence your life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will show your leadership abilities today if you get involved in a group effort you believe in. Your ability to take charge will be noticed by someone who can in turn help you out in other aspects of your life. Romance is in the stars.

Birthday baby: You have a driving force that will always push you to reach your goals. You are insightful but sometimes headstrong. You like to be in control and will work hard to lead the way.
