Happy Birthday: Start to look at things the way they truly are. Once you realize what you can do, nothing will stand in your way. Changes do have to be made, and a clear view of what you want must lead the way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do something special for an older friend or relative. Taking a responsible attitude will help re-establish what kind of person you are in the eyes of those you care about the most.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): As much as you are going to want to believe everything you are told today, it’s best to keep your guard up. An emotional issue will take you by surprise.
