Happy Birthday: You may still be recovering from all the setbacks you had in the past but don’t let things you can’t change now hold you back. This can be a very important year for you to rebuild, rethink and replenish. Get back into the mainstream; it’s your attitude that will make the difference.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may face some opposition today but nothing you can’t handle if you keep your wits about you. If you have built your reputation on solid ground you have nothing to worry about. Be very creative in your description of what’s fact and what isn’t.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There will be lots going on behind closed doors. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for anything that will help you form your own opinion. Get your own facts firsthand and stay in control.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep things simple. It’s when you flitter from one thing to another that others will view you as not having a set goal or direction. An unusual idea, if executed properly, will bridge a gap that has been difficult for you in the past.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The very person who is critical of the way you do things will enforce his or her will if you get too far ahead of yourself. Slow down, do things right and don’t let anyone put words in your mouth. An interesting partnership can develop.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A chance to take an idea and turn it into a profitable endeavor is looking very positive today. Let your industrious side take over. Put in whatever it requires to stand above any competition you come up against.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ve got some very interesting prospects going on around you. Don’t be a bystander – get involved and you will prosper. Listen and do your research before contributing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may be torn between your emotional and practical side. Listen to both and try to find some middle ground. You will probably have disagreements with loved ones or the people you reside with.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The more meetings you can schedule or interviews you can go on, the better. Do not let your emotions get into the mix. Someone from your past can play an intricate part in your life today.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Expect to have some problems at home. Someone is likely to oppose you and your plans. Discussions about buying, selling or renovating will backfire. Focus on your profession if you want to get ahead today.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Keep your thoughts to yourself and avoid traveling if you can. Focus on changes that will please everyone. A change in your current direction may be upsetting at first but ultimately will be to your benefit.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Something to do with your early childhood and your current earning potential will leave you bewildered. Try to make sense out of why you do or don’t want to try something new. Step beyond your goals.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Someone may not agree with what you are doing but, if it makes sense to you and you feel strongly about pursuing your direction, you have to do so. You may need to learn a lesson — going through the process may be the only way you can do so.

Birthday Baby: You tend to stick to conservative methods to get what you want. You are emotional, giving and sometimes hide behind your beliefs. You are strong, persistent and a little stubborn.
