CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Taylor Hanson, 23; Billy Crystal, 59; Quincy Jones, 73.

Happy Birthday: You can move mountains this year. A relentless drive to finish what you start and get what you want will help you achieve your goals. This is a money year for you and, although you will be able to make some serious investments, you should also put your professional strategy into play.

ARIES (March 21-April): Put more detail into your work today. The little extras you do will be what count. Someone you least expect will be talking behind your back. Don’t let this bother you – you will come across as extremely capable.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can make some very interesting observations and changes in your career direction. The opportunity to talk to people with knowledge about a position will turn out well. Don’t stand still – you can make a difference to your future.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Set your own pace and refuse to let anyone get you running in circles. Be firm but not nasty if you want to get through this rather awkward and unpredictable day. Don’t let emotional issues surface.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): An original approach will lead to all you want. Don’t be afraid to share your thoughts or to organize a group to help you achieve your goals. Changes at home will be advantageous in the long run.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You should do your research well today, before you decide to jump into something with both feet. A change of heart regarding a personal relationship is likely. Don’t say anything until you have decided how and what to do.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take any opportunity you get to talk to people in the know. A neighbor or good friend will shed light on a current situation. A good idea can turn into a profitable deal. Be careful how and to whom you present your work.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Find a way to treat yourself to a relaxing experience where you can spend some quiet time considering your motives. A slight alteration in your plans may be all that’s required to get you back on track and headed toward the winner’s circle.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The people closest to you may be trying to protect you from something or someone they know little about. Step outside your circle so you can see clearly. Baby steps will be the answer – drastic changes will come back to haunt you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may think you know what you are doing but you aren’t in any position to make a clear decision today. Back away from anyone trying to corner you into making a commitment. Avoid getting upset or angry.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can make some very important moves today that should bring things to a head. Money issues can be dealt with and should help bring about some much-needed change. A work-related matter could lead to a new opportunity.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Sudden changes are apparent. Don’t take things to heart. A partnership may take a turn you weren’t expecting. Make the necessary changes to your living arrangements that will help you financially and emotionally.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Think before taking action. You will be drawn into a controversial situation that could lead to an act of aggression. Be careful while traveling or operating a vehicle. Protect yourself from letting things spin out of control.

Birthday Baby: You are aggressive, determined and not likely to back down. You know what you want and you know how to get it. You are a force to be reckoned with.
