Happy Birthday: You may find yourself in a push-pull situation this year. Consider what you are trying to accomplish before you start moving in too many different directions. There will be lots of opportunity but picking and choosing what is best will be tricky. A practical approach will bring the highest returns.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may find yourself putting in extra time on a project. Perfectionism isn’t a bad thing if it gives you the edge and helps you get what you want. Concentrate on your future goals.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone may try to talk you into spending or donating to something that you really don’t need or believe in. Someone you work with or for will recommend you for a better position. Love is in the stars.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Someone may use emotional blackmail on you. Don’t give in to lame excuses or exaggerated information. It may be upsetting, but you can’t let anyone get away with yanking your chain. Enough is enough.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can get so much done today if you put your mind to it. Family gatherings or spending time with close friends will bring about meaningful conversations of your past and the people in it. Travel or visit old familiar places.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Luck is with you today but that doesn’t mean you should spend money unnecessarily. The luck has more to do with networking and travel that will allow you to promote something you believe in. Don’t restrict yourself when there is so much you can accomplish.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t get all worked up over nothing. You should be focusing on love and family and doing things you enjoy. Changes at home will actually turn out to be better than anticipated.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t worry about the small stuff but, instead, look at what really counts. A unique approach to the way you do things or the way you handle people will give you the edge. It’s best to be secretive and a little mysterious.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re on a creative roll so don’t waste time. Do your best to pull things together and present and promote your work. Keep in mind that you don’t have to go it alone. Love is on the rise.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take baby steps. If you move too quickly everything you are trying to do will spin out of control. This is not the time to give false impressions or empty promises. Stick to facts.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Money, investments and upping your property’s value are all favorable today. You can add to the comfort of your home or entertainment center. This is a great time to spend with family or a loved one.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Community events or volunteering to help an organization that interests you will all lead to meeting new people who can help you out in other ways. A partnership that forms will be better for you than you realize. A lifestyle change is apparent.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t get sucked into someone else’s melodrama or blamed for something you didn’t do. Stick to facts and don’t believe everything you hear. Love is in the stars, so plan something special.

Birthday Baby: You are sensitive and changeable emotionally but very practical when dealing with finances or something that could influence your position. You are forward-thinking but not one to take a risk.
