Happy Birthday: Use your charm, ingenuity and good memory to help you get ahead this year. Take advantage of the good timing you are experiencing and get things all tied up before the end of the year. You may have to do double duty but it will be worth it. If you get off track or let things go on too long, you may have the tides turn on you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You aren’t likely to please everyone but, the people who truly care about you will understand. A break will do you some good and allow you to rethink your strategy. Then you will be back on track and hard to stop.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Look at your options and choose whatever promises to keep you away from any personal problems. You will have trouble with older relatives and will feel anxious about unresolved issues and added responsibilities. Someone you meet will take your mind off your worries and offer good advice.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may have to look at your life a little differently today. There will be some hidden issues that may confuse you. Time spent at home will allow you to resolve matters that deal with the people you live with.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may be offered a position but, before you jump at the opportunity, consider how good a deal it really is. Get more information regarding what the job actually entails. Romance, a shopping spree or doing things with youngsters will highlight your day.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone is probably trying to use you to get information or to meet someone you know. Don’t see this as being totally negative – just make sure you get something in return. Don’t get involved in joint ventures.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can make your move and rally up all the support you need today. Although there will be some opposition, it’s you sitting in the driver’s seat, so keep the momentum flowing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Use your charm, intellect and intuition to guide you through any legal or financial matters. You can win in the end if you are well-informed. A new proposal will make you aware of your potential and the possibilities that exist.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Travel and communication will lead to helpful information for your next move. A chance to show how adaptable and versatile you are will be impressive to someone who can help you get ahead. A relationship may take you by surprise.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If an idea or plan isn’t sound, don’t get involved. You already have enough on your plate and adding a project will lead to additional stress. Stick to what you know; now is not the time for change.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Social events should include networking with people who can contribute to something you are already involved in. You will gain popularity through your ability to please others and your confident way of expressing yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The more you can do by yourself, the more you will accomplish. Someone may misdirect you unintentionally, causing a setback. It’s time to reevaluate what you want to do next. Change is a must.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will captivate the imaginations of others through your vision and perception. Your ideas and workable budget will draw an interest you didn’t expect. A connection can be made that goes deeper than a workable partnership.
