CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Jesse Plemons, 19; Emmylou Harris, 60; Linda Hunt, 62; Leon Russell, 65

Happy Birthday: Travel, educational pursuits or attending events that interest you should all be part of your plan this year. You will connect better with family members, making your personal life better.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do not allow anyone to have an influence on the choices you make. Confront situations in person if it will give you a better understanding of what you need to do.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get involved in projects or volunteer work that will help others and raise your profile and popularity. Taking an active role will help build your confidence. Trying to replace something or someone will be futile for now.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Use your ingenuity and be innovative in all that you do. Making abrupt changes will not pan out the way you expect. Consider what everyone else is doing before you take on a new partner or project. Restrictions are likely.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): By doing things a little differently, you will upset the people who are used to your being predictable. Give fair warning if you want to move along without interference. Your Cancer charm will allow you to smooth things over.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Financial gains can be made and a quick change of ideas, plans and legal documents will seal the deal. You don’t have to spend money traveling to get things done.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may be tempted to take on more than you can handle financially. Take a better look at what something will cost you before you sign an agreement. Be prepared to do whatever is necessary to protect yourself.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll be sentimental but don’t let that stand in your way or lead you to do something you don’t want to do. Ask for favors if you need help. A creative project will take a new turn.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have to take a chance and do something out of the ordinary. If you keep waiting for everything to fall into place, you will never accomplish anything. Promote what you’ve got and worry about building whatever else is required later on.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you say you can offer something, you had better be able to deliver. You will only get one chance, so be honest, accommodating and ready to make a deal. If you were fair in the past, you will receive help now.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t rely on anyone if you want to get things done properly. You will discover that someone you didn’t expect may be working against you. Get the required information, documentation or legal advice.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will have a chance to make some money, settle a claim or collect a debt. Someone you have been involved with will try to involve you in something that you should probably avoid.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Not everything will be clear but, if you ask for too much or you exaggerate a situation, expect to have to change your tune. Past regrets are a waste of time.

Birthday Baby: You are worldly, entertaining and popular. Your persuasiveness enables you to get your way.
