CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Haley Joel Osment, 19; Mandy Moore, 23; Ryan Merriman, 24; Steven Seagal, 56

Happy Birthday: Gauge situations and conversations carefully this year. You aren’t likely to receive the help you require, so prepare to do for yourself. Once you learn to totally deal with each issue as it arises, you will discover it has always been other people holding you back.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Travel, communication and networking will all lead to advancement. Follow through with your plans and present your ideas. A serious look at exploiting what you do in a new way will work wonders for you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Realize that not everyone is ahead of you and you can take a little time to think matters through thoroughly. Someone will come to your rescue when you need help but may want a piece of the action in return.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t be fooled by someone offering you something that may not live up to what he or she is telling you. Someone from your past is heading back into your life. Call and make the connection.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can open up doors that will lead to bigger and better opportunities today. A chance to do something different or to start a little business of your own on the side should be in the works.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Why are you playing when you should be industrious? You have so much potential to actually get ahead if you are on top of things. A chance to hook up with someone who can complement your talents is present.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can win the prize or go the distance or even overturn a decision that was made if you push the right people. At the same time, there will be no recourse once you step over the line. A relationship may be in jeopardy.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Someone is likely to give you a hard time if you have been spending too much time doing your own thing. Rethink your strategy, especially if you are not 100 percent sure you want to pursue a partnership that is being offered.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Think, plan and organize but don’t let others do these things for you. Stay in control or someone more aggressive will take over and take credit. Set the guidelines and give everyone an outline of what you expect.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Pick and choose wisely to whom you will listen today. Someone you least expect will lead you in the wrong direction while someone you don’t know but who has experience, will give you the input you require to make the right decision.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Now is not the time to lose your cool. You will be a little on edge regarding a deal or partnership that means a lot to you. Don’t let someone or something from your past intervene. Finish what you start today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will have to make some serious decisions if you want to keep things amicable. Someone may tempt you to do something you shouldn’t take part in. Discipline will be required. Trust in your ability to say no.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have a bird’s eye view of what is actually taking place that could potentially dismantle something you want to pursue. Move fast and you may be able to do a little damage control and save the day.

Birthday Baby: You act on impulse with an incredibly inventive way of doing things. You are easy to like but difficult to compete with.
