Happy Birthday: Personal matters may lead you to distraction this year. Reconsider your position and how you should proceed. Concentrate on what really matters to you and, in the end, you will make wise choices and leave a lasting impression. Pull in the reins when necessary to be your best.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take a moment and realize that you aren’t alone. You may be feeling a little emotionally spent today but you have more support and help than you realize. If you need to retreat, someone will pick up the slack.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Stay away from people who tend to criticize you. Children or older relatives will cause a problem for you. Be careful where medications, stimulants and socializing come into play.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Deal with the things as they happen and you will be able to control the situation better. A financial opportunity is apparent or a gift or surprise will brighten your day. Too many personal choices will lead to confusion.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t allow others to influence you emotionally. You may feel the need to make a change that will lead to a new position due to a misunderstanding or unfortunate occurrence with a peer or colleague.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone is not telling you the whole story. Find out for yourself before you make a decision regarding a partnership. An opportunity to move forward with a project may not be as cut and dried as you had hoped.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a peek at what’s going on with your children, friends or peers and you will have greater insight into what you can do to help out. Your ability to bring added detail to whatever project you work on will be impressionable. Don’t let anyone take you for granted.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A chance to do things with friends or to get in touch with someone from your past about whom you can’t stop thinking will lead to an interesting idea. You may even change your mind about something you’ve labored over for years.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may think you are ahead of the competition but you are likely to be surprised. Take this as a lesson learned. It’s not too late if you can bring yourself to cut a few corners.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be persistent and stand your ground today. Appeal to the emotions of others if you want to get support. Don’t be afraid to reveal what you have been through in order to change the mind of someone you need on your side.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll be emotional, unpredictable and upset with anyone who can’t grasp what you are trying to do. Retreat and rethink your strategy if you want to come out on top. You must maintain a position of strength.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Deception, disillusionment and dealing with any kind of stimulants may be tempting but will not solve any of the problems you face. Stay true to yourself and honest with others. You can turn this rather confusing day into a creative turning point in your life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Nothing will be the way you think it should be. Don’t count on anyone or anything to fall into place for you. You will be as unpredictable as everything and everyone in your life. Rethink your position.

Birthday Baby: You view things differently and often take the road less traveled. You are wise but also a daredevil. You are organized but you give your plans a unique twist that is unpredictable.
