Happy Birthday: The obstacles of the past have lifted so start putting things in place. Don’t labor over what you’ve lost in the past or what didn’t work before. Focus on what you can do in the future. A positive attitude and hard work will pay off this time.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Money may be a concern but, if you spend too much time worrying about it, it will be a waste of valuable time. Instead, drum up more business, change jobs or work on an investment that will make your life easier.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The more you talk to people about your plans, the closer you will be to achieving your goal. This is a great day for travel and setting the record straight. You will discover who is on your side.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Secrets must be kept today if you want to prosper. Money matters will develop and the information you have will be a key to making things turn out well. Keep your business and personal life separate.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): A creative idea can turn into a moneymaker. Changes or renovations to your residence will pay off. Be willing to compromise. Something you enjoy doing can turn out to be quite lucrative.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Forget about trying to sort out personal problems. Put your efforts into work, investments and getting ahead financially. Money can be made, deals and contracts signed and security and confidence gained if you are steadfast about getting ahead.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a bit of time to do something nice for yourself. Shopping or pampering yourself will put you in a better frame of mind. A new hobby will bring you in contact with someone who shares your interests. Love, romance and socializing should be high on your list.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Not everyone will agree with you today. Take a second look at your options. You may not like the idea of making a move or change but, if it can help you out financially, consider doing so. Talk to people who can give you an objective opinion.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It’s your own uncertainty that will hold you back today. Sometimes you have to trust in yourself. Second-guessing will not lead to stardom but jumping in with both feet probably will.
