CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Caroline Corr, 33; Mia Hamm, 34; Rob Lowe, 42; Kurt Russell, 55.

Happy Birthday: Give yourself this year to expand and grow, allowing yourself the time to work on creative ideas and projects. Don’t let someone who is forever making you feel guilty stifle your plans or ruin your attempt to reach your goals.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your past relationships have deadened your sense of worth and stagnated you emotionally, so get out there and meet new people. Get involved in something you are passionate about and don’t be afraid to rally for a cause you believe in.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may be called upon to do something that takes advantage of you. Weigh the pros and cons and, if you aren’t going to get something out of the deal, walk away. You will impress someone who really does have something to offer you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Not everyone will see the value in what you do, but the ones who do will make it worth your while. Someone may not be as trustworthy as you think. Don’t share your secrets or thoughts regarding your personal situation.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may not be doing all that well emotionally but, if you can bring yourself to get out with friends or involved in something that interests you, it will take your mind off your worries. You may even get over whatever or whoever is making you so upset.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get out and expand on your ideas and beliefs before you start changing your lifestyle. Yes, you are ready to make alterations but not before you check things out. Evaluate your motives.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone you have to deal with today is likely to cause trouble. Be prepared to counteract, change midstream or completely walk away from a situation that doesn’t feel quite right. A poor partnership will hold you back.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Getting out and about will do you the most good today. Sticking around home or trying to deal with your peers will be a waste of time that leads to discontent. Interact with new people or get involved in a new pastime.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will be torn between your personal life and your creative dreams. Take advantage of whatever comes your way that has the potential to lead to new and better use of your talents. Anyone who tries to stand in your way isn’t a good friend.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may want to secure your financial situation as best you can. It will be important to act fairly in your personal situation. Once you can put this behind you it will be much easier to move forward in a positive manner.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Money matters will draw your attention. A chance to do something totally different will excite you. You can make some strategic moves regarding your career. Your openness will impress someone who can make a difference.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Start doing something that will help you establish a better financial future. Make some alterations to your living arrangements and you will end up saving yourself some much-needed money. Avoid letting anyone take advantage of you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Problems at home will set you off. Don’t consider dealing with contractors or making substantial changes to your surroundings. A chance to come into a gift, winning or collecting an old debt is apparent.

Birthday Baby: You are dramatic, sensitive and quite good at getting your own way. You are secretive about your personal life but open about your abilities. You have uncanny timing.
