Happy Birthday: If you are practical in the way you approach things this year, you will find an angle that works. Keep in mind that you don’t get anything for nothing. Hard work, ingenuity and putting yourself on the line will work as long as you don’t overindulge in any way this year.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can reach your goals if you are careful in how you present things. You will have stamina and discipline and will know what will interest the people you are dealing with. You can make financial gains if you are smart.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Change can be good and, in this case, you have to trust in your own judgment. The decisions you make to put the past behind you are right-on. Partnerships on all different levels can be gratifying.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The good will outweigh the bad if you don’t let your emotions get in the way. A chance to do something that can turn into a new position or advancement must not be looked at lightly. Don’t let a scheme that is not viable ruin your practical plans.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): It may be hard to part with things but if you really aren’t using them anymore, give to those in need. You will be praised for your kindness. Someone from your past will show interest.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take a close look at partnerships or any agreement – be careful to read the fine print. Someone is likely to be dishonest with you. Don’t get angry – outmaneuver whoever is trying to take advantage.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Personal and professional relationships appear to be changing so adjust your position in both cases. Someone you work with will cause problems for you. Don’t overreact – remain calm and you will stay in control.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do something that will perk you up or make you feel more confident about yourself. An idea you have for a project will take flight. Don’t count on everyone being enthusiastic – especially loved ones.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Use your charisma and finesse to get what you want in your personal life. But when it comes to an important business arrangement, you may have to bend more than you think. A passionate encounter is apparent.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t be fooled by a big talker. Today you will be vulnerable to other people’s agendas. Deception in business can be expected so protect your interests by refraining from making a commitment.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can get a feel for what the competition is up to by keeping a watchful eye and listening to what everyone else is saying. A change in your professional direction will do you good. Don’t let someone dictate what you can and can’t do.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Talk may be cheap but today it will have an impact on you emotionally. Be careful not to retaliate or to say things you’ll regret later. Keep your guard up but don’t take action just yet.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your need to interact with others can be satisfied if you volunteer to help a cause you believe in. Money can be made if you are smart with your investments. Approach someone who owes you money – it’s time to collect.

Birthday Baby: You are sensitive, caring and willing to go beyond the call of duty. You are curious, inventive and easily upset if someone doesn’t get what you are trying to do. You are a little ahead of your time.
