Happy Birthday: Don’t let the uncertainty you are feeling stop you from following through with your plans. Consider how you can overhaul your look, your lodgings or even your love life. It will only turn into a wasted year if you don’t discover a new direction. Rid yourself of all that isn’t working for you anymore.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You are sitting in a much better position than you realize. Trust in your abilities instead of thinking that someone else can do something better. Social activities will lead to valuable information.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your stubborn nature will get you in hot water today. Because you won’t take no for an answer, you aren’t likely to get what you expect. Be clever in your approach to others. The impression you make is likely to affect your future.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make plans to visit someone you find interesting. You can make some adjustments where your career is concerned to ease some of the stress you’ve been feeling. As much as you like to keep the peace, a business associate may force you into an awkward position.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): As long as you don’t overspend on entertainment, friends or family you can enjoy your day. If you aren’t happy with your current position or direction, find out what your options are. You are overdue for a change.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It won’t take much to get yourself in trouble with family or your lover. Keep a lid on your opinions today. Flirting will only lead to more trouble, so try to be considerate of others.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Speak up and let others know your intentions. What good are your thoughts and ideas if you don’t put them into play? Your strong convictions will encourage others to join in and support you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You have so much to offer so don’t be lazy or you won’t reap the benefits. Act promptly if you want to come out a winner. Everyone else is rooting for you and waiting for you to take action.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take things one step at a time. Make sure you have made concessions for anything that could go wrong. You are walking a fine line but not one that you can’t manipulate in your favor. Progress is apparent.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotions will flare, giving rise to some interesting conversations. Get rid of old grudges and work to fix whatever hasn’t been working for you. Money can be made and deals struck if you are honest.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Consider what you can do to make your personal life better. If you have neglected the people who care about you, now is the time to let each of them know how much you appreciate the support they give. Plan a family outing.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There will be lots to contend with at a personal level. The outcome will depend on how you broach the situation. Now is not the time to be aggressive but it is the time to be firm.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get in the groove and you will soon see how much of a difference you can make. A deal that could potentially make you money is apparent. Property investment, your own small business, winnings or gifts are all looking positive.
