CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Nelly Furtado, 28; Rena Sofer, 38; Lucy Liu, 38; Stone Phillips, 52.

Happy Birthday: Learn to do things by the book or you will have to backtrack this year. Put a reasonable goal and a strategy into place. You have to satisfy your needs before you can do anything to help someone else. If you don’t have some structure in your life, this year will be wasted.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Activities, dealing with people, sharing ideas, concepts and thoughts will be eye- opening. You will have a far better idea what you want to do with the rest of your life if you mingle, research options or travel.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t get angry, get moving. If you give in to someone who wants everything his or her way you will not feel good about yourself. Let your dreams, hopes and wishes be known.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Someone you know through work, school or personally will be keeping secrets from you. A surprise is likely to unfold. An older relative will have something to offer you. A past partner will come to mind.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can acquire some degree of success through the company you keep today. The more involved you become in an organization that offers help to others, the greater your chance will become to meet someone who can help you in return.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t let someone confuse you by what he or she has to say. Judge for yourself. Emotional matters won’t help a decision you need to make regarding your future. Don’t let someone hold you back by using emotional blackmail.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A short trip will help bring a lot of sense to something you’ve been considering pursuing. You are better off looking outside your home and asking for help from people you aren’t related to. The people closest to you will not understand what you are trying to do.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Something you remember from your early childhood will spark a renewed enthusiasm in an activity you want to participate in. Family will be able to help you prepare for what you want to do. A money matter can be resolved.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may find yourself emotionally torn between what you have to do and what you want to do. Get your work out of the way first. Someone you care about may question your motives and your feelings. Be honest.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Children may cause you some worry today. Whether they are your own or someone else’s, you can expect to feel responsible for something that occurs. Have a game plan ready if you are the one put in charge of entertainment today. Your choice will make a huge difference in the outcome of your day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It may be the weekend but deals can be put into play if you check out an investment or something that you feel is a good deal. Inheritance, surrender, rebate or a gift or winning is heading your way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotional deception is present. Try your best to be honest in your conversations. Travel plans are likely to run amuck. Confusion may set in if you don’t keep things simple.

Beware of fast-talking salespeople.
