Happy Birthday: Take a good look around you and you’ll realize it’s up to you to do the work this year. It will be your adaptability that will help you rise above everyone else. You’ll have the knowledge you need to get what you want.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): If there is still work to be done, forget about its being the weekend. You are better off getting ahead and avoiding criticism. A change of plans may lead to a change in your position. Don’t get angry or upset.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Go out antiquing or rummaging around garage sales. You are bound to find a good deal or a real treasure. You can make some changes to your looks, warranting compliments from people you socialize with in the evening.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let a change of plans send you into a tailspin. Use your versatility and you can work around any adversity that develops. You will be competitive enough to hold on to your position and to keep everyone at bay.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Stick close to home where you feel the most comfortable. Don’t let anyone you live with make you feel guilty. Interference is likely to develop emotionally. Don’t let anyone coerce you into an argument.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Travel, a little shopping, and listening to older individuals with more experience will all play an important role in your life today. Don’t get sucked into the moment, however, and make promises you may not want to keep.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): All the things you’ve been thinking about doing in your personal life should be put into play. Do things by the book so that you won’t have to backtrack later on. Clear up matters that have been holding you back.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There will be a lot going on that you don’t know about. Reserve judgment for now and take a wait-and-see approach. You should be able to get someone interested in a creative project you are trying to pursue.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will know exactly what to do to help others but, when it comes to your home base, you may feel helpless. Just being there will be enough, so stop being so hard on yourself. Your support is what counts.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be torn between what you want to do and what you should do. Regardless, you can expect to be criticized. Someone you care about will disappoint you. Ask a trusted friend for advice.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will find a good deal that will please your pocketbook. A chance to invest in a piece of property or to get involved in a potentially profitable financial deal is in the stars. Gifts, winnings and coming into unexpected cash look promising.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may be forced to trust your basic instincts today but don’t make a move that you can’t reverse. Someone will lead you to believe that a situation you face is much worse than it really is. Take a practical approach.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll be very excitable today. Don’t let your enthusiasm deter you from paying proper attention to the people in your life who mean the most to you. Money is heading your way but you are likely to spend it as fast as you get it.
