CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Gillian Anderson, 38; Deion Sanders, 39; Melanie Griffith, 49; Sam Elliott, 62.

Happy Birthday: You have lots at stake this year so don’t be sidetracked by what others want you to do. Focus on what’s important to you instead of overloading your schedule. Being a jack-of-all-trades will not get you what and where you want. Focus for success.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let someone shut you down before you begin. Not everyone will agree with you today but, if you feel strongly about something or someone, follow your own instincts. Keeping a secret will be in your best interest today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Stick close to home and to the people who have always supported your efforts. Someone who causes you grief will use emotional blackmail. Don’t complain but don’t make promises to compensate this person. A change in a partnership will give you a boost.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll be able to maneuver your way through anything today. Your original and unusual way of handling things will draw attention. Not everyone will agree with you but don’t get defensive and you will come out on top.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let things get to you, especially if someone has been less than honest. A money deal may be stifled – view this with relief, not as a loss. Be patient and another moneymaker will come along.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If someone is being aggressive, he or she is probably trying to hide something from you. Don’t overreact – bide your time and observe. A real estate or money deal looks good. Change the dynamics of your living arrangements.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Caution must be taken when dealing with anything or anyone professionally. Someone may be judging you harshly. Prove your worth and show your ability if you want to turn things around. Change is in order.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Everything is starting to go your way, so stop living in someone else’s shadow. A fuss may be made if you branch out on your own but that shouldn’t stop you. A new connection can be made if you take part in something creative.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t take anything for granted. If you don’t have a promise in writing, it probably won’t happen. Lifestyle changes will pay off. Not everyone will like what you choose to do but it will be best for you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Travel plans can be put in place. Someone you meet will spark a new idea. Get people involved in what you are doing but don’t give up control. Don’t be aggressive, just have a good explanation for why you are taking this action.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Reflecting your past, present and future will help you to change your direction. Develop a partnership with someone who thinks as you do. Money can be made but be sure to have the proper paperwork in order.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotions will be difficult to control today, especially if you are trying to work out problems with someone you love. Honesty will be the key. It may be time for a change of scenery as well as friendships.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Money deals can be finalized. You will be lucky but you will also have to be smart. Don’t let anyone take advantage of your good fortune. An opportunity should not be swept under the carpet. This is not the time to feel guilty.

Birthday Baby: You make your move in a big way and light up the universe with your personality. You are quick, unpredictable and fun-loving. You are playful and possessive. Nothing is too big or too small for you to take on.
