Happy Birthday: The more you enjoy what you are doing this year, the better you will do. Put an end to trying to please everyone else and start pleasing yourself. This year is about undertaking something truly meaningful to you. Develop an idea you have that can make you extra cash.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): If you sit around letting everyone else make a move, you will lose out. You should be pursuing contracts or clearing up any settlements or legal concerns you have. The sooner you take care of business, the better it will be for you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t wait for someone else to give you a signal. You can make some very important changes regarding friends, lovers and children. Be strong, stick to what you want and you will come out on top.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let someone at home or with whom you are involved mess up your mind so that you miss out on something that could alter your financial future. An older colleague or friend may be a problem.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You should be planning a social event that you can enjoy with your lover, friends or your children. Getting together with a group of people will be satisfying and allow you to voice your opinion with positive responses.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone will try to hold you back or control what you are trying to do. Problems regarding your home, residence or any changes that have to be made will be trying. Take a wait-and-see attitude.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Find out whatever information you need to know by surfing the net or going to the source. You won’t be able to take anyone’s word today so don’t try to cut corners. A change may not be welcomed but, in the end, it will be the best thing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t consider “why not” when you are working on something creative. Look at “why and how” so you can proceed. Publishing, travel or talking about your plans will bring about greater interest in what you are trying to do.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Not everyone is on your side or looking out for your best interests. Be prepared to make alterations that will suit your current direction. Sometimes letting go of the past is the only way to move forward.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can make significant headway if you plow through whatever needs to be done and push for what you want. You will win favors if you show others that you are willing to compromise. A little giving will go a long way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Listen to what others have to say but don’t give in to brainwashing or pressure. It’s important to keep a low profile and not to upset the applecart when dealing with partners. Travel will be costly.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look for the path of least resistance today. If you try to go against the grain, you will be faced with challenges that will leave you at a standstill. Cautious, conservative and calculating will be what’s necessary.
