Happy Birthday: Don’t wait and ponder over what you should do this year. Use your head, your talent and your ability to communicate with others to get projects off the ground. Rely on yourself and you will have far better luck with friends and lovers. The year ahead will be full of both good and bad surprises.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): A change going on around you will lead to a way out of a sticky situation. Be quick to take advantage and make your move. Someone who feels the need to direct you will ask questions. Do what you consider most beneficial for you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Emotional, over the top and not too clear about what’s going on around you should be reason enough to keep things plain and simple today. Avoid getting into any deep discussions with a partner.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): By changing your attitude to suit the people around you, it will be easier for you to get things done your way. An emotional reaction from someone you have to deal with can be avoided if you listen and compromise.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): It’s important for you to talk about your ideas and share your insight and vision with the people around you. Good suggestions will be made and a partnership is likely to form. Love will take on an interesting twist. Don’t get angry or upset.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may think you are getting your point across but the people who actually have to get it are questioning what you are trying to do. Expect conflict and even some deception. This is not the time to open up about your feelings.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may be wondering how you can align yourself with people who are walking down a different path. A draw toward a different profession or a need to explore an interest you have in more depth must not be ignored.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you see a career opportunity, jump at it. A change may not be what you want initially but, once you make your move, you will realize you did the right thing. Don’t let laziness or procrastination stop you from moving forward.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t feel limited by the changes that are taking place around you. Watch what’s going on but don’t let insecurities put you in a vulnerable position. An emotional change shouldn’t overshadow what you are supposed to be doing.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be sitting in the line of fire if you have been pushing everyone around you to do things your way. Back down and worry about your own future, not everyone else’s.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your good will may help out when it comes to doing business but, if you are overly helpful, you will be taken advantage of. Charity begins at home, so don’t overlook where you can do your best work.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Focus on deals, health and legal matters. You will come into something you don’t expect. An idea you have will pay off. Exaggeration will get you into trouble no matter whether it’s you or someone else stretching the truth.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Money is heading your way – collect old debts, make an insurance claim or ask for a loan. A love connection may take on an interesting new direction. You will attract exactly what you are looking for from your partner.

Birthday Baby: You have charm, grace, determination, luck and a relentless courage. You are interested in a variety of hobbies, pastimes and vocations. You are creative, original and a wonderful conversationalist.
