CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Shawn Ashmore, 27; Rachel McAdams, 30; Toni Braxton, 40; Simon Cowell, 47.

Happy Birthday: Travel, change and learning should take precedence this year. The knowledge you gain will be the driving force behind what you can accomplish and how far you can go. Money will be the result if you play your cards right. Don’t wait for someone else to lead the way – you must lead if you want to reap the rewards.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): If you haven’t been getting along with someone, let him or her know your concerns. Talk to an older friend or relative who can offer an experienced point of view to the situation you are facing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may have added responsibilities or concerns due to younger or older relatives. Dealing with health issues or institutions will be emotionally difficult but, if handled correctly, will lessen the stress you are feeling.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may have a lot riding on what you have promised or said that you can do. Go the distance and you will surprise the people who don’t believe you. This can be a day that brings the sweetest revenge and the coolest rewards.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you let your emotions lead the way, you will make mistakes when dealing with loved ones. You may find yourself in a bit of a dilemma if you are attracted to someone who isn’t available or if you are already involved with someone else. Do what’s right.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can get a lot done if you work from home today. A chance to develop an idea you have can turn out to be a valuable asset in the future. Don’t exaggerate about what you can and can’t do. Help will be offered and a chance to move into a position of strength is apparent.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Everything will hinge on what you have, what you can have and what you have to do to get what you want. By following your instincts you will make the right choices and see through bogus offers. Be smart.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Everything will be riding on how you treat others today. If you are kind and thoughtful, you will get what you want. A romantic proposal will take you by surprise. Someone you least expect will want to help you bring about change and reform.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): So much will be riding on how you handle your responsibilities. Money can be made, businesses developed and deals put into place if you write out all the ground rules.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Everything is pointing toward having a jolly good time and expanding your interests, knowledge and friendships. Take on whatever challenge comes your way. Commitment and security can be obtained.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You might as well focus on work, money and professional gains. Anything to do with home, family, travel or dealing with friends, relatives and neighbors is likely to turn out badly. You can put together an important presentation.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Money, winnings, gifts and benefits that you don’t expect will fall in your lap. You will be able to rethink your professional strategy or your retirement. An older relative will make an important point. Listen to him or her.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will be lucky with deals and money. Don’t push your luck in relationships, however. Anger, upset and jealousy appear to be staring you in the face. Play it safe.

Birthday Baby: You have a sophisticated outlook and a drive and determination to follow through with your life plans. You are strong, emotionally in control, unique, unpredictable and extremely clever.
