CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Verne Troyer, 38; Dedee Pfeiffer, 43; Rick Hurst 61; Don Novello, 64.

Happy Birthday: It’s your hard work that has brought you this far.

This may be a year of change for you but, once the transitions are complete, you will be in a much better place. Good things are heading your way but everything takes time, effort, courage and determination.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Pull together the information you need to accomplish your goals this year. Travel and visiting with friends, relatives or neighbors will turn out well. An older or younger person’s point of view will challenge you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Relax and ponder the year gone by. Talk to trusted friends about your ideas and intentions for the upcoming year. Don’t promise someone something you will have difficulty fulfilling.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This may turn out to be a highly emotional day if you aren’t careful how you deal with loved ones. Accommodate elders in your family. A great idea shared will lead to a prosperous new beginning.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may prefer to stick around home today but you should be visiting friends or family. Your thoughts will be a welcome addition to any conversation and will probably help you decide what you should be doing this year.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may still be going strong from last night. Your bring-in-the-new-and-toss-the-old attitude will make you the life of any get-together you attend. You will be high-spirited, helpful and will probably overdo it today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be careful how you handle family members. One slip of the tongue and you could easily start a feud that will take years to correct. Keep things friendly and do what you can to help others.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take a trip or even a short ride to visit friends or family. Don’t let a relative who rubs you the wrong way upset you. Starting off the year on a happy note will be the route to take.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Visit someone you didn’t see enough of last year and start the year off right. If it was someone you love and you just too busy working, put today aside for the two of you. Be sure you don’t neglect this relationship any longer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be doing things in a big way and probably overdoing. Try not to consume more than you should or you may pay for your indulgences. Overindulgence on all fronts will be what stops you in your tracks this year.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may be thinking about all the things you want to accomplish this year but put your plans on the back burner and give your family a special day together. A look at the possibilities and fulfilling each of your loved ones’ dreams should be your goal.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You should be hosting a little gathering for friends and family. The need to help others should be the message you are sending today. It’s time to jump to the next level of responsibility.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t travel or venture into territory that could be a letdown or, even worse, a potentially upsetting situation. Keep the people you trust and love close to you. This is not the day to push your luck with authority or to take risks.

Birthday Baby: You are a doer and a provider.

You have strength, courage and the desire to turn everything you touch into something worthwhile. You are an inventor with a vivid imagination.
