CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Halle Berry, 40; Magic Johnson, 47; Gary Larson, 56; Steve Martin, 61.

Happy Birthday: Be careful not to let anyone take you for granted or mislead you this year. You have way too much on the line to take chances. Ask for cash upfront if you are working with someone you don’t know well or who doesn’t have the best track record for paying on time. Look out for your best interests and you will succeed.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t make financial decisions today. This is not the time to gamble or to take on costly, major renovations. Concentrate on your home, family and easing the stress you are feeling.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get out with friends and avoid any personal issues that are causing you grief at home. In money matters, stick to what you know. An investment may be up in the air but, observe what someone else is doing and you will make the right choice.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Travel should be on your agenda. The more time spent networking with people of similar interests, the closer you will come to taking on a project you will really enjoy.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): A chance to do something totally different should be your goal today. A change of scenery or thinking along different lines will help you grow mentally and possibly lead to a new lifestyle, geared toward enjoying what you do and making a living at the same time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is your time to excel. Added discipline and charisma will lead to the success you are looking for. Talk to people who are already doing something similar to what you want to do. The help will surpass your expectations.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Money matters can be taken care of today. Make the changes at home that will lead to a more comfortable and stress-free environment. A change of heart will make it easier for you to make a final decision.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is a perfect time to revitalize, revamp or renew old relationships that have perhaps gone stale. Pleasure trips will bring you greater insight into who you are and what you are looking for on a personal level.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may feel the necessity to make some very quick changes but hold off. Watch what everyone else is doing before you proceed. You may only have to adjust your way of thinking to get things to run smoothly.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Just when you think you have everything under control financially, you will find yourself up against uncertainty and someone who can put a stop to your plans. Get ready for a challenge and expect things to happen quite rapidly.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A partnership may undergo some problems, leading you to want to go it alone. Do what you must but protect what’s yours from the backlash that is likely to follow. Keep everything documented.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Something doesn’t add up. You are probably being told what you want to hear not what is actual fact. Do a little soul searching to understand why you are experiencing a communication breakdown with someone you think you know so well.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You have the knowledge and the information required to put something you want to do into play. A partnership will help. However, don’t give up too much; you have plenty to contribute as well.

Birthday Baby: You have charm, charisma and are a natural at being dramatic. You were born with luck and tend to land on your feet even though you are quite unpredictable in your actions.
