CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Maggie Gyllenhaal, 29; Oksana Baiul, 29; Tammy Lauren, 38; Dwight Gooden, 42.

Happy Birthday: You don’t usually ask for favors or help but this year you must. Let key people know what you are trying to do and you can move forward. This time, take the help that is out there. It’s all about seeing how far you can get this year.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let your emotions cause you to make a fuss over nothing. If you take a moment, you will realize you may be acting out of jealousy. Spend time concentrating on what it is you are supposed to be doing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will find it difficult to hide the way you feel or to deal with people who challenge you. Added responsibility will develop because of an older relative, child or a love gone awry. You have to make wise choices.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Think big, put yourself on the line and look for any means to advance, make positive changes or learn something for the future. A social connection made today may turn into a business opportunity in the future.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Someone might not like the choices you are making but you have to be honest with yourself. Don’t lead someone on – it will only hold you back or cause you to miss out on getting to know someone who can make a difference to your life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone will come to your rescue and, if this person suggests you rid yourself of some things in your life giving you grief, do so. This is a good time to buy or sell items or property. It will help you clear the air and move on.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a unique approach to whatever you do today. A partnership may be changing slightly but this can actually be to your benefit. Lay down some new ground rules and speak honestly about your feelings, your plans and your intentions.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t try to put the blame elsewhere. Own up to your mistakes and you can turn things around quickly. A vehicle that will allow you to express yourself emotionally will help and guide you to do the right thing.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t let someone push you around by professing to know more than you. You may be younger or less experienced but you also have a good sense of what you can do and how you can accomplish things.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Nothing will be easy for you to see today. Don’t let someone give you a false impression or push you to make a decision you aren’t ready to make. Be sure of where you are headed before you burn bridges.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t let your emotions influence your decisions. Look at your future. If you aren’t clear about something, ask questions but don’t make your mind up based on an assumption.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stick to the rules and the truth. A problem with technical equipment will cause a misunderstanding. Money can be made if you are straight about the way you are going to make it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take a trip or get involved in a group that will make you think about your current lifestyle. It may be time to get involved in a bit of a health regime. A good idea can turn into a cash growth.

Birthday Baby: You are proud, reserved and observant. You are strong-minded and will stick to whatever you believe is right. You are a mediator, peacemaker and a protector.
