CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Amanda Peet, 34; Mary J. Blige, 35; Kim Coles, 40; Naomi Judd, 60

Happy Birthday: You have to set your plans in motion and not rely on others to do things for you. This year is about what you can do to make things better. Money deals will turn in your favor but trusting others is not an option. Count on yourself.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Pushing your way to the top of whatever you engage in may not be easy but it will be your intent. You aren’t likely to give up until you get what you want. You will be strong-willed and very stubborn.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t get emotional about your work or the people you deal with daily. You will do yourself more harm than good. Stick to what you have to get done; finish what you start.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep moving today or you will end up sending all the wrong signals to the people you deal with. You’ll be emotional, so stick to your plan regardless of what is going on around you. Nervous energy will be difficult to channel.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): A personal makeover is in order. Take a good look at yourself and decide what changes are appropriate. By improving your outlook you will be able to improve the partnerships you have with others.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): All work and no play will not be good for your state of mind. If you aren’t completely happy with your personal life, consider whether you are involved with the right crowd or personal partner. If someone is trying to hold you back, move on.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can mix business with pleasure and get a foothold on a future position that will bring you far more clout. A residential move may be necessary. This is a great time to make changes.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Being outspoken may get you into trouble but, once the dust has settled, you will be able to go about your business clear of mind and feeling much better about your future. Don’t let anyone who challenges you get away with cheap shots.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The more you do for others, the better you will feel about yourself. You can make a difference to both family and your community. A change in your personal life will be to your benefit. A partnership you have wanted to be in for some time will take a positive turn.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Focus on work and money, not your personal life. You can expect to face trouble at home. A business trip or conference will keep you out of trouble and out of the house. Be creative in the way you handle people.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Believe in your own talent and so will everyone around you. This is the perfect day to show everyone what you are capable of doing. Advancement is apparent if you don’t hold back. Be disciplined and detailed.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Travel or dealing with authority figures will result in problems. This is not the day to push yourself on others or ask for too many favors. Solve problems yourself if you want to keep your reputation intact.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will be very indecisive, especially in personal matters or dealing with friends, relatives or your lover. Say little if you want to keep the peace. Work by yourself if possible.

Birthday Baby: You are bright, articulate and very productive. You are interested in what everyone else is doing but you don’t lose sight of your own goals. You are a teacher, a student and someone who takes responsibility seriously.
