CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Gerard Depardieu, 57; Cokie Roberts, 62; John Amos, 66; Tyler Nelson, 23

Happy Birthday: You have everything going for you, so make your move this year. Don’t think – do. You won’t be sorry if you stay active and accomplish while others are sitting around waiting for the year to come to a close. Jump-start your chances and you will achieve the success you are looking for.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is not the time to sit back when there is so much you can accomplish. Get yourself geared up for the future and put all efforts into what you need to do to secure a brighter and better year ahead.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Watch what everyone else does. This will give you a good indication of what you can do and how you can do it better. Emotional matters will crop up, so be ready to put someone’s mind at ease.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Traveling will be in your best interest. The more people you get to see and talk to, the better. You will learn a great deal from the encounters you have and be able to get a handle on what it is you want to do next year.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will be at an emotional high, so take advantage of this and let others know how you feel. Be open, honest and to the point, and you will feel so much better about your own future.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may have a lot of questions on your mind, but now is not a good time to ask. Sit back and let nature take its course. To pursue something new today will only end in defeat and disappointment.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You won’t be able to sit still, so don’t bother trying. Make this a day to remember by doing things with someone you want to make a more important part of your future. You don’t have to divulge your plans just yet.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A chance to try something altogether new will get you thinking about your future. Don’t hesitate to follow through and check out the possibilities. This is a great day to implement your new year’s plans.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may have put on a couple of unwanted pounds during the past couple of days. Spend some time at the gym to ensure you will move into the new year in great condition, able to wear those new outfits.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your changeable mood will bewilder some of the people who are closest to you. Don’t keep secrets – get other opinions before you unleash your new enterprise or the lowdown on your plans for the future.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Talk to someone about your plans and you will get valuable information. You will be able to prove yourself if you take the initiative and follow through. It’s time to stay ahead of the competition.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can expect to have some problems with the people you hang out with today. Keep things in perspective and avoid arguments at all costs. You can’t win today, so keep things light.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will be working through things and will have a better idea of what it is you want to pursue in the future. This is a day to rid yourself of what isn’t working in your life and start fresh with the new year.

Birthday Baby: You have a certain intrigue that draws others to your side. You are industrious but also creative, and this combination makes you unique. You tend to think and do things on a large scale.
