Happy Birthday: Be careful how you handle situations and people this year. Manipulation, deception and underhandedness may play a role in your life if you aren’t on top of what’s going on. It will be an on-edge type of year. However, take control and you will have everything to gain.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): A trip or getting together with peers will bring you challenges, helping you realize how much you actually have to offer. Your ability to think and act fast will impress. Physical activities will give you a sense of accomplishment.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Children and relatives, the ones you love the most, may upset you today. Try to concentrate on studies or professional goals. Now is not the time to delve into the personal problems others are experiencing.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): An attraction is apparent and being intimate with someone you are serious about looks promising. You can develop a much deeper relationship today or revive a partnership that has suffered for some reason. Nurturing will be essential.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Rid yourself of negativity and give everything and everyone around you a positive spin. The reaction and results you get will make you realize how easy it is to have your way through the power of positive thought.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will find good deals when shopping – possibly too many. Gauge yourself so you only buy what you need. Someone you love may play emotional games with you. Don’t get dragged into a no-win battle.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may think that you have satisfied any situation that has been brewing negativity but, without making significant changes, it isn’t likely to be resolved. Go back to the drawing board and come up with something unique and original that will appease all involved.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): An older or younger person in your life is likely to cost you money if you aren’t careful. Offer advice, your services or time but refrain from paying for someone else’s mistakes. Love and romance look promising.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Nothing appears to be going your way but only because your focus is too narrow. Step outside your situation and talk to people who can give you an objective point of view. You will actually be able to do something about your situation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t donate to an organization you know little about. Instead, spend your time enjoying the company of like-minded people, traveling or putting yourself in a setting that will ensure you learn something new. Leave room for someone you love.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): All work and no play will get you into trouble but a little work will go a long way. Get your priorities straight, stay focused and organized and you will have the best of both worlds.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t get all worked up and emotional if you don’t have the whole story. You may be subject to someone who just wants to cause trouble in your life. Go to the source and ask the questions you need answered.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take a look at the important details of a deal or do a little medical research that will help you feel better. However, don’t get involved in a secretive matter that could get you into trouble.

Travel and communication will not be easy for you today.

Birthday Baby: You are popular, engaging and can be a very good storyteller. You are expressive, dynamic and colorful in all that you do. You strive for freedom and cannot survive in a stifled environment.
