Happy Birthday: This year, be the one to step up to the podium and be a leader. Show your desire to actually get things going and you will motivate others to follow. This is a year of honor, fair play and leadership. By taking a strong position regarding what you want to accomplish, success will come your way.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may not be thinking practically but you will pull things off by being determined and refusing to consider that you may fail. Your belief in yourself will count today, so don’t let anyone tell you differently. You will advance.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may feel limited by youngsters or the elders in your life. Incorporate what they can offer you into your plans and you can turn a negative into a positive. Find out more about the proposition being offered.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep your emotions out of whatever you are doing today and you won’t face any setbacks. Someone will not be on your side. Love and romance are in the stars so put time aside for passion.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let someone who questions everything you do stand in the way of your progress. You have options and decisions to make and you must do so of your own free will. This is not the time to give in to someone’s selfishness or jealousy.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Changes at home may be heart rendering but, at the same time, they will bring you peace. A deal can be made, a settlement agreed upon or even a move put into play. Rid yourself of what’s not working.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Talks will lead to a commitment and a positive change in your life and your relationships. A short trip to visit someone who can offer you information about something that interests you will be the first step in a new direction for you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You can make a move that will lead to a better future. Don’t be so afraid of change or letting go of things that are not really working for you any more.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Family, children and socializing should be your focus. Helping someone will bring you satisfaction as well as ensure that you will get help when you need it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t trust yourself to see things clearly at an emotional level. You can expect someone you care about to turn on you or let you know how he or she really feels.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Today is all about your future and making the right choices. Don’t let your own insecurities hold you back or lead you to believe you don’t have enough experience and knowledge. Just go for it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stop confusing matters by second-guessing what you are going to do next. Act on your instincts and don’t waffle. Mistakes happen but at least you will make more headway than you will by sitting and contemplating what to do.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your emotions will cost you financially if you give in to the demands being put on you by friends or family. Your intent should be on making money not letting it filter through your fingers.

Birthday Baby: You have the potential to be a leader. You are honest, care about others and consider what’s best for everyone around you. You are a strong contender but lackadaisical when the interest isn’t there.
