Happy Birthday: Don’t be too eager to get involved in a joint venture. You will do much better fending for yourself and, thus, reaping the rewards. If you lack confidence and think that you need someone else, you will end up losing out. Trust your own abilities to lead you to success.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): It won’t take much for you to stay ahead of the competition but you may offend someone close to you if you are too busy to be sympathetic to his or her needs. Jumping into something without including loved ones will cause stress and tension.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You are likely to become emotional about issues you strongly believe in today. Reforms can be made and you should use your expertise, experience and stubbornness to do something about the things you don’t agree with. You will face opposition but will receive satisfaction.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A change in your current direction may be daunting at first but, once you start moving down that path, you will become energized. Move ahead swiftly and show everyone how easily you adapt to whatever comes your way.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look on the bright side of things. You may not like what’s going on around you but, if you look a little deeper, you’ll realize nothing is really changing – it’s just progressing a little fast for you. This is not the time to hibernate.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will be inclined to take on too much, promise too much and overindulge. Curb any temptations before they get out of control. Focus on your creative side.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can get ahead if you concentrate on the job you are working on. An opportunity to do something with someone you truly admire is likely to develop. Put your ideas into play.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Doing things with children, friends or co-workers will turn out well. Take charge and make all the arrangements. You may face some confusion about your belief system or philosophy; don’t make any drastic changes for now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You are likely to be a little mystified about your personal life. If you aren’t able to sort matters out, ask someone you trust for his or her opinion. Resolve these issues swiftly.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be careful not to make a move based on false information. When in doubt, do not make any noise about what you are going to do. Watch to see what everyone else is doing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stop being so focused that you miss out on some truly good times. You owe it to yourself and to the people who care about you to relax for a change. Make special plans that will take you out of work- mode and put you into a playful and stress free frame of mind.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Anger will cause problems with friends, neighbors or anyone who doesn’t see things your way. Refrain from trying to convince others to follow your path. Instead follow it yourself; you may change your mind once you get started.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Talk to the people you know have a good handle on your situation and you will get answers to questions you haven’t been able to solve yourself. A problem with someone you work with may come to a head if you don’t do something quickly.

Birthday Baby: You are emotional, sensitive and very intuitive. You react quickly to whatever is going on around you. You are an advocate of doing what’s right.
