CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Heath Ledger, 28; Craig T. Nelson, 63; Maya Angelou, 79

Happy Birthday: Be ready to take advantage of any opportunity that comes your way. If you are bogged down with other people’s problems, you will not be able to advance this year. Your high expectations can be reached.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may question your beliefs, your partnerships and your direction. Honesty will help you find the answers. Keeping an open mind and heart will give you the discernment required to make the right choices.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If something is on your mind, speak up and you will find it much easier to move along. Help others or volunteer in some fashion. Be careful if someone from your past asks for your assistance.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If someone asks to borrow, the answer should be a simple “no.” Do whatever is necessary to secure your personal life, your home and residence. An older relative may be a burden but, with give and take, the relationship can be good.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Stop being negative. If you play your cards right you can advance, find love and make new friends. Networking will lead to a good time and some interesting information.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Getting out and having some fun may be an outlet for you but it won’t please everyone in your life. You will probably run into someone you never quite forgot. That may be exciting, but it will cause problems with your current relationships.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Travel will take you away from home and all the worries that you face each day. You need a little time and space to figure out what you really want.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): What you want to do may be stifled by responsibilities. Be creative in finding solutions and you will have the freedom to do the things that you enjoy doing most.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can get a lot out of the way today. Let your creative energy lead the way and you will develop something very interesting. A chance to make some money is apparent by picking up additional work or offering a service. Love is in the stars.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone will come to your rescue – if you ask for help, you will get it. Changes to your residence will help you enjoy the comforts of home a lot more. Don’t make a hasty decision regarding a friend, relative or neighbor.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can make money today by doing things a little differently. The time to put your plans into play is now. You can mix and mingle with people who will understand what it is you are trying to do. Don’t be fooled by empty promises.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If your actions might hurt someone’s feelings, rethink your options. Be careful not to upset anyone you care about or the damage may be irreversible. Emotional confusion is apparent, so don’t make snap decisions.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can turn something you are thinking about doing into a moneymaker. Invest in yourself and your ideas, not someone else’s. A love connection can be made but make sure your motives are honorable.

Birthday Baby: You are dedicated, loyal and forceful in the way you approach people. You are willing to do what is necessary to fulfill your needs. You are sensitive, intuitive and innovative.
