Happy Birthday: Be smart if you want to end the year with a profit or on a high note. The end result will be directly linked to what you promise to do and how much you actually accomplish. Instead of trying to do it all, do less but do your very best.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): There is so much going on that you aren’t aware of. Network and make contact with individuals who are in the industry or activity you are trying to infiltrate. You can be successful but you have to work for what you want.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may have to deal with situations you’ve been avoiding if you want to move on. Don’t donate or offer your services to a group you aren’t that interested in. Your strength comes from knowing what you want.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Empty promises are likely. This is the time to back off and regroup. Knowing what you are up against is half the battle and, once you realize what everyone else wants, you can start to make headway.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Things are beginning to turn in your favor. This is a great day to go for an interview, ask for a raise or offer a service for cash rewards. Changes to your surroundings will make you feel more at home and comfortable.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You don’t want to throw good money away by investing in something that isn’t a sure thing or by purchasing something on impulse that you don’t really need. Don’t overspend to impress. Just be entertaining and stick to a budget.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may feel pulled in two or more directions. Everyone will want a piece of you or your time. Don’t even try to do it all. It’s time to say no and delegate the tasks at hand.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your mind should be on the ones you love. Make plans to do something entertaining or engage in something that will inspire you to follow your dreams. You can probably spark some interest in an idea you have.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It’s time to drop everything and pay a little attention to your home and family. You may be preoccupied with a project you are working on but it isn’t worth losing the respect and love of someone you care deeply about.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be heading into trouble if you haven’t been honest or have tried to get away with something in the past. Problems and delays can be expected. Someone will call your bluff and let you down. Be on guard.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Get on with what needs to be done so you can enjoy the ones you love and have a little fun. You may be questioning your future direction and considering other options. By limiting yourself you will miss out on financial possibilities.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Too much of anything won’t be good. If you offer your time or services to outsiders, the people closest to you will be disappointed. Avoid being enticed by indulgences you have given into in the past.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep things in perspective and you will do just fine. If you overreact, take on too much or try to blame someone for your own doings, you will face trouble. Someone in a position of authority will not believe you.

Birthday Baby: You like to be a participant and will have fun no matter what. You are quick, inquisitive and very good at sizing things up. You have a strong intuition.
