Happy Birthday: Not everyone will be on your side this year so pick and choose carefully. If you don’t say no to far-fetched ideas, it will cost you emotionally and financially. Have confidence that you, not others, know best. You are much better off taking the safe route this year.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The more entertaining you are, the better. You can convince anyone of anything today. Money matters are looking good and you can expect to receive an old debt, winnings or a gift.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Stick strictly to business and you’ll do great. If you mix business with the social, you are likely to suffer emotionally. A change in plans may leave you feeling uncertain. Keep moving forward.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s a changing playing field and, regardless of what you do, you will have to adapt. Somewhat unstable circumstances should be treated like a new beginning and welcomed. Someone you’ve grown to rely on will probably let you down.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): An opportunity is evident so don’t pass it by, thinking it’s nothing. You can count on someone you know to come through for you. Talks will lead to a prosperous deal. A short trip will pay off.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): As long as you don’t let someone talk you into something costly, you will be able to have a great day. Entertainment doesn’t have to put your bankbook in the red. Spend time with someone you like and think before you spend.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let confusion cause you to make a mistake. If uncertainty sets in, back away and leave your decision-making for the time being. An emotional matter is likely to occur with family members. Listen but don’t meddle.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Talk to anyone and everyone who shows an interest in what you are doing. This is a fabulous day to pick up information and to sell one of your ideas. Favors will be granted so don’t hesitate to ask for help.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Conflicting signals will cause confusion today. Stick to the people who have always been on your side. If you venture into new territory, you will meet individuals trying to knock you down, take advantage of you or steal your ideas or even your friends.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be tempted to move in a direction that may not be in your best interest. Someone will appear to be able to offer you exactly what you need in your life; chances are it won’t turn out as planned. Think twice before you give up something.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ve got a handle on everything today. You know exactly how to turn a penny into a dollar and you will dazzle your peers with your ingenuity, talent and driving force. This is a great day to get your way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Good things can come from turbulence. Sometimes you just have to get through the storm in order to see the calm and the goodness. Trust in the people who have always been there for you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll find it difficult to sit back and take it easy today. The more you take on, the less likely you are to do a good job. Focus on what really matters to you instead of running from what’s important.

Birthday Baby: You are a thinker and a doer. You aren’t afraid of change and will welcome any challenge. You are creative and original and will not be pushed around. You can be forceful when necessary.
