CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Mark Messier, 45; Kevin Costner, 51; Bobby Goldsboro, 65; Jesse L. Martin, 37.

Happy Birthday: You may be tempted to help someone out for the wrong reasons this year. Don’t lend someone money or even your time before you take care of your own business. The opportunity to do something that you’ve always wanted to pursue is now – stop thinking about it and go for it.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Consider the promise you made yourself at the beginning of the year. If you haven’t stuck to it, take the time to get back on track. Don’t let other people’s agendas take precedence. Stick to your game plan.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t wait for others to do things for you. Take the initiative and you will get results. Today is not about standing in someone else’s shadow. A connection can be made with someone professionally and personally important.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may be led astray by someone who has his or her own motives. This is not a good time to spend money or to try to make personal or physical changes. A fast decision will be based on false information.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Home will be where the heart is today. You should make a few adjustments to your surroundings that will make you more comfortable. Take the time to deal with someone you love in a positive way. You will avoid unnecessary upset later.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t even think about taking a break. You have to put your heart and soul into a job that requires your undivided attention. By following through with a business plan, you will get things moving in a positive direction.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You really should be on vacation or at least doing something you enjoy today. Time spent with children, family, friends or your lover will be worth its weight in gold. This is a perfect day to make adjustments to your life.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are likely to be ridiculed for whatever you try to do around the house today. Money matters can be resolved and making a change to one of your investments will be wise. Renovations may cause some worry.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Get on top of things, especially partnerships. You can win in the end if you are articulate in the way you describe your plans. Your position must not change, regardless of the circumstances.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It may be difficult for you to keep what you are trying to do a secret but you will stand a better chance of accomplishing your goals if you do. Someone will cause trouble if you are too trusting or open.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You see it, you want it, you take it. That should be the flavor of the day. Rethink why you have been watching out for everyone else. Don’t forget to make special plans late in the day.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t believe everything you hear. Someone may be trying to convince you of something by being complimentary. Steer clear of overindulgent people and distance yourself from a partner who has caused you grief in the past.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Listen to someone who is fighting for a good cause. You may want to join in. Getting involved will take your mind off your own problems and the changes taking place in your life. Develop one of your many talents.

Birthday Baby: You are sensitive, caring and a do- gooder. You are a problem-solver. You are a thinker and a reactionary who is responsible and reliable.
