CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Vanessa Carlton, 26; Emily Robison, 34; Angela Bassett, 48; Robert Culp, 76.

Happy Birthday: Don’t let your emotions get you into trouble this year. Reacting too fast will lead to mistakes. Bide your time and let others lead the way for a change. Learn from the financial and personal experiences of others and you can come out on top.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can make anything happen if you take the right steps. You will be difficult to turn down, hard to resist and should be able to get others to help you. Set aside some time for love.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will feel as if you are moving one step forward and two steps back. Be patient. If you are willing to take a back seat for a moment, you can bypass some of the setbacks you’ve been encountering.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll talk a good story today but you won’t fool the people closest to you. Unless you can prove that family will benefit from what you are trying to do, you aren’t likely to get the go ahead.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The test will be easy as long as you follow the instructions. Put yourself on the line if you believe in what you are doing. A money deal may not be as it appears. Investigate before you make a commitment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You won’t be able to decipher between what’s good and what isn’t today. Avoid making a decision that you will have to live with for some time. Someone you thought you could trust will probably let you down.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Travel or attending an event will lead to someone who can have a great impact on your future. Don’t make a commitment just yet. You will discover that you are worth more and may be able to get the same results on your own.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is not the day to contribute financially to a group pressing you to donate. Put your money into something that will help your own situation or your family. A change in the structure of the way things are being run will leave you feeling vulnerable.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Jealousy will lead to unwarranted problems. Trust the people around you and, if someone lets you down, you will know to move on quickly. A hard decision is evident but, once you it’s made, everything else will start to fall into place.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be tempted to travel but, before you do, see how cost efficient your plans are. If you can get the same results through email or phone calls, stick close to home and avoid additional expenses. An investment will help solve your financial problems.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may find yourself having to travel today to get things done to your specifications. A social event will be conducive to expanding a relationship you are already in or developing a new one with someone you just met.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t be fooled by appearances. Given the opportunity to look deeper, you may already sit in a much better position. Hold on to and nurture what you have.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Partnerships will not pan out the way you hope and will probably lead to setbacks or financial loss. A love connection is looking good. Put more time into making this connection a long-term commitment.

Birthday Baby: You can talk your way in and out of anything. You are outgoing, independent and love the finer things in life. You are not afraid to take a risk and know how to manipulate a situation.
