CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Charlotte Church, 20; Jennifer Love Hewitt, 27; Kelsey Grammer, 51; Tyne Daly, 60.

Happy Birthday: Don’t let laziness hold you back. You will have the perfect opportunity to do something you’ve wanted to do for some time. A financial gain is evident if you are willing to go the distance. Your own insecurity and lack of confidence in your abilities will be what hold you back.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): If you are on the go from morning to night, progress will be made. Financial gains look very positive. Good fortune and luck are in your corner. You will have the competitive edge.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your kindness and generosity will impress others and lead to greater self-worth. You will gain respect and receive rewards for your selfless actions. Someone may take advantage of you by trying to get you to pay for his or her mistake.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t count on things running smoothly. You will take things the wrong way if you let your emotions get in the way of rational thinking. Rushing to finish something will not prove to be the most efficient means of getting things done.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Love and romance are looking very positive but avoid getting involved with someone you work with. A setback may be upsetting but, if you are determined to succeed, no obstacle will stop you from reaching your goal.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can make things happen that you’ve been trying to get off the ground for some time. Cold calls, interviews, pitching an idea or even just barreling ahead with your plans will bring you good fortune. You don’t have to show off in order to impress others.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may not like what you see but refrain from being critical. Putting pressure on someone you care about will backfire. Self-improvement will bring far better results than trying to reform others. Meddling will lead to a series of negative events.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Visit someone who can enlighten you about something you want to do. Do your own research and carefully cover every aspect of whatever it is you want to do. Be careful – too many things on your mind will result in minor accidents.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The less risk, the better. Don’t let anyone know what your plans are – today is about taking others by surprise. Brainstorming may result in discovering a gimmick that will be marketable. You are on the right track.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Change is upon you even if you aren’t relishing the thought. For now, it’s best to let things unfold naturally. Your motives may be questioned if you aren’t upfront about what you want to do.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you are too open, you will give your competition the upper hand. Drastic measures will not be the answer once a problem is set in motion. Keep a low profile, be observant and stay in control.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Let your humanitarian side shine through. Being a spokesperson for a problem you have had first hand experience with will do you good. Your inventive ideas will help to bring about long overdue changes.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Being cocky about what you know and can do will not impress anyone. You are likely to face an unsavory situation if you let someone corner you about your past. Lashing back or trying to cover up will only make you look guilty.

Birthday Baby: You have an explosive personality. You are a doer, determined to make your mark. You are giving, loyal and a trooper when it comes to lending a helping hand. You have great strength and courage.
