Happy Birthday: You’ll have to work hard this year but the rewards will be well worth your efforts. A location change or a trip that initiates either mental or physical change is evident. Your openness toward others will enable you to move along without concern. You may have to walk away from someone who is forever throwing a wrench in your plans.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): If you are waiting for things to happen, nothing will get done. You have to go for it today and not worry about what anyone else is doing. Someone you care for will probably cause you grief.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll have to look at things realistically, especially when it comes to dollars and cents. A financial mistake will snowball into a series of difficulties. Focus on making your money grow instead of on risky investments.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A serious approach will win you points and buy you time. A chance to develop something that will help others is looking very positive. Love is in the stars, so don’t forget to put time aside for someone special.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You won’t have trouble handling anything that comes your way today. Sudden changes can be expected but the end result will work in your favor. More responsibility and higher wages are coming your way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may be inclined to go against the grain today but, before you do, consider how little you will gain. This is not the time to get bent out of shape over something that really isn’t that important.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have the right idea and the timing to forge ahead with your plans. Don’t let someone who is inconsequential in your plans put you in a bad mood. Go after what you want.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You have a lot more to lose if you take chances today. You may have some interesting ideas but right now you are not going to be able to sell them to anyone. Listen to someone you trust.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will have everyone eating out of your hand today. Your research will pay off and your expertise will not be disputed. You will be able to make the appropriate changes to follow through with something you’ve wanted to do for some time now.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be careful – just when you think everything is OK, you will be stopped in your tracks. You have to be upfront if you don’t want someone to oppose your every move. Stick to the people you can count on.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look on the bright side and you will be surprised how much you can accomplish. A positive attitude will be all it takes in some cases. Be careful regarding health issues. A social event will lead to a new proposal.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can rely on friends or relatives to help you out. Deal with any matters that have to do with institutions. A lie will lead to a whole lot of explaining and disappointment late in the day.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can make a deal today that will help clear up old debts and help make some money. An interesting job will get you moving in a new direction. If you are lacking something, it’s time to implement it into your everyday routine.

Birthday Baby: You are caring but practical in the way you help others. You are dynamic, aggressive and to-the- point. You are open to other people’s ideas but not easily swayed.
