Happy Birthday: Don’t let anyone talk you into spending your cash unnecessarily. You may be torn emotionally, especially if everyone expects different things from you. Take a look at what’s important to you and follow that path rather than trying to please everyone else this year.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Set the stage for the way you want things to unfold today. You can make things happen according to your agenda by taking control.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t mix money and finances with romance and personal partnerships. You stand to lose a bundle if you aren’t careful how you spend your cash.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You won’t be fooling anyone if you think you can hide the way you feel. A love relationship may be up in the air and a little effort on your part will be required.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be careful what you offer others. You may be taken advantage of or face some unnerving changes if you are too accommodating. Focus on what you need to do.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ve got everyone eating out of your hand so what are you waiting for. Present and promote whatever your latest idea or craze happens to be. Your entertaining ways will capture the interest of someone who can help you get ahead.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You will have to proceed with caution if you don’t want to make mistakes. Let others divulge what they are thinking or doing before you decide to. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ve got everyone’s attention, so use this rare opportunity to your advantage. Travel, communication and getting what you want are in the stars, so don’t hold back or back down.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There may be too many choices and not enough information to make the right decision. Look for guidance from someone who has experience. Being practical may not be what counts this time.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is probably not the best time to travel or to speak your mind. Too much will be riding on what is said or happens for you to force issues. Take a wait-and-see attitude.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look for the silver lining or the pot of gold and you will find it today. A chance meeting will bring you closer to something you’ve wanted for a long time. Money is in the picture and a chance to get ahead looks good.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Learning and observing will be the key to staying out of trouble, especially when dealing with partners. You will be preoccupied and this can lead to mistakes, mishaps and minor accidents.

Don’t let money be the motivating factor in a decision you make.

Birthday Baby: You can find a solution for anything. You are sensitive and emotional and this can lead to uncertainty. You are a creative communicator and skillful at getting things done.
