CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Caitlin Wachs, 17; Sean Biggerstaff, 23; Mark Hoppus, 34; Judd Hirsch, 71.

Happy Birthday: You can be successful this year if you take financial action instead of daydreaming. You must treat each of the little details with care. This is not the year to let others meddle in your affairs but rather the time to protect yourself and your future by staying in control.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Emotions will be difficult to control so it will be better if you let people come to you. You can make some headway on a project you have been trying to get off the ground. The people you need to collaborate with will want to proceed.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There is a window of opportunity today if you jump at a career offer. Have faith in your ability and talent. Someone from your past may be on your mind. Wait a couple of days and then make contact.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t think of anything in terms of being over but instead as another new beginning. You will have some very interesting and unusual chances to turn something you do into an exciting new venture. Don’t look back.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): There are too many good things going on around you right now to let your emotions take over. Stop and think before you spit out something that you will regret. Consider what you can do, not what you can’t.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Friends and relatives will be the ones who help you see your way clearly. You may not like to be so drastic but you will have to be if you want to have impact on the situation. Live by your own beliefs.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can be a mover and a shaker today, both professionally and personally. Keep the momentum flowing and don’t take no for an answer. The only mistake you might make today is letting someone slow you down.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is not the time to stay put. Get out and about, trying new things. The more experience you acquire for future projects, the better. Love is looking good; plan an evening that will allow you to explore that part of your life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t let the uncertainties of the past stand in your way again. You have plenty of ideas and talent to work with so choose your course. You know you can do it, so what’s the holdup?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be walking a fine line both at home and work. Keep your thoughts to yourself and avoid arguments. You will find it difficult not to exacerbate whatever situation you face. Keep a low profile.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Just when you think you have everything done or have heard the last of a situation, phones will start ringing and comments and contributions will start coming in. You will be able to take something you’ve been wanting to do for some time one step further.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will be passionate about whatever you do today. Be cautious about moving too quickly. Think about what you are doing and take however long you need to formulate the best way to carry on.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Everything has been moving a little too fast. If you find yourself unable to process everything, call for a time out. Partnerships may leave you wondering if you really need to be in one or not.

Birthday Baby: You are an opportunist. You know what to look for and how to utilize what you’ve got to its fullest. You are willful, determined and can be pushy if that’s what’s required to get things done.
