CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Jennifer Jason Leigh, 45; Christopher Guest, 59; Barbara Hershey, 59; Roger Staubach, 65.

Happy Birthday: No matter how you feel about the people around you or the work you are trying to do, you have to follow through. No one said it would be easy but you have it in you to finish what you start. When you do, the accomplishment will set the standard for the entire year. You don’t have to be perfect – just live up to the standards and goals you set for yourself.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You need to gather more information before you make a decision or take action. This is not the day to jump to conclusions. Chances are good that you are overreacting to a situation that is not out of line.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Learn to say no. You don’t have time to waste getting other people’s work out of the way. Focus on your own tasks and you will make an impression on the very people who can help you advance.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Watch who you are dealing with. Avoid people trying to get you to contribute, donate or give up your time. You have to be honest – if you give someone the impression that you are willing to do something, you will be held accountable.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have no time to waste today. You can make some interesting personal changes to yourself or your home that will leave you looking pretty efficient. Love is on the rise.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Gambling, poor investments and, in general, overindulgence will have a far-reaching affect on you. Clear up unsettled business with friends, relatives or your lover. Now is not the time to let things linger, so clear the air.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let your emotions get the better of you. Take a closer look at what the people around you are doing and reassess your situation. This is not the best time to hire contractors or to renovate your home. Conserve, don’t spend.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will get some support from friends and relatives, with favors being granted. A child or older relative will do something unusual that can help you avoid a problem.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You should be out discovering new things or making new acquaintances. The more networking you do, the better. Personal issues will confuse you. Someone you are close to will probably not tell you everything you need to know.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Travel and communications will be problematic today. Take a wait-and- see attitude before you make a decision. Someone will withhold information, leaving you blindfolded regarding personal matters.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can test your talents today and win. Any challenge you face will be a game in progress and you will play to win. Money can be made but someone may try to take advantage of your efforts and rewards.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Be honest with yourself and others and you won’t have a problem taking care of the emotional issues that arise today. If you hide your true feelings or withhold information, you will face an even greater obstacle.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Taking on too much, indulging too much or promising something you can’t possibly deliver will all lead to trouble. An event or activity that requires physical skill will help you get rid of some of your anxiety and frustration.

Birthday Baby: You are a perfectionist who must learn to be less self-critical. You are an adventurer – inventive, original and with plenty to contribute to society.
