CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Masaharu Fukuyama, 38; Axl Rose, 45; Natalie Cole, 57; Tom Brokaw, 67.

Happy Birthday: This can turn into a money year for you if you are intent on making some progressive investment moves. Any opportunity that comes your way has to be seriously considered and should probably be put into play.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Quit sitting idle and hop to it and you will set the standard for everyone else. Don’t be aggressive or pushy with others. You have to move along at your own pace regardless of how slow others are.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): An aggressive move on your part could put you in a better position but don’t leap without the proper information. Take the back door to get somewhere – that way you will surprise the people who may want to block you or hold you back.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let anyone get away with emotional blackmail when you should be concentrating on your own goals. A younger or older person may be able to help you in a way you least expect. A creative idea will bring you financial gain.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You should make changes even if someone you are close to doesn’t agree with your decision. You may take on too much. Be careful that you can reach your deadlines and promises made so that you don’t look bad.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You don’t have to travel to find a little excitement and entertainment. Make plans that will lead you to a challenging, inexpensive activity. The more you can do for less, the further ahead you will be at the end of the day.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may feel as if everyone is trying to tell you what to do and how to do it and they probably are. Some of the suggestions made will be worth listening to but, if someone tries to use force, align yourself with someone less aggressive.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): All sorts of possibilities will unfold if you try your hand at something new. A short trip will pay off in the people you meet and the information you discover.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone you are close to may withhold information you need to make an emotional or personal decision. A romantic opportunity will leave you feeling good about your future. Don’t give up or in to what others want.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t be fooled by what you hear. Rumors and gossip will lead you down the wrong path. A chance to make a professional change or look into a vocation that interests you will raise your spirits.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll be inclined to let your emotions lead the way, causing mistakes that will be difficult to fix. A love relationship will test you and challenge your ability to give as much as you receive.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Money should be on your mind. You will have a great idea and, if you can keep it small to begin with, you will be successful. A partnership will prove to be beneficial.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There will be just as much going on behind the scenes as there will be out in the open. Bide your time and watch what everyone else does before you make a decision.

Someone may try to trick you into taking action that isn’t warranted.

Birthday Baby: You were born with luck, intuition and the power of persuasion. You are a doer and organizer who can get others motivated. You are a mastermind and a born leader.
