Happy Birthday: Be careful what you invest in this year. Back something that you can control, like your own personal interests instead of someone else’s. An emotional issue that has been hampering a partnership must be resolved. You are a little behind schedule but, if you act fast and deal with matters head on, you will get back on track.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You will get a lead that you will have to pursue today. Whether it has to do with learning, traveling or even taking an active role in a group you find interesting, you must follow through. A lifestyle change will enhance your life.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t get pulled into a difficult emotional situation. If you meddle, you will bear the brunt of the blame. Being a good listener can serve you well today and help you avoid trouble.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you can refrain from letting your opinions lead the way, you will do much better. Keeping an air of mystery will spare you some responses you probably don’t want to hear. A relationship is likely to cause you some heartache. Focus on helping others.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let negativity hold you back. Recognize the opportunities and take advantage of them. Your creative ability is at an all time high and projects can be completed and presented. Expect rewards for your hard work.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone may try to weasel in on something you are doing. Protect your interests by trusting no one but yourself to do what needs to be done. Networking will pay off.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t start a war at home. You can get talks out of the way and resolve issues but only if you are willing to keep things calm and running smoothly. Compromise will be the key.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Consider where you see yourself heading over the course of the next few years. If there is something you can do or someone you can align yourself with to fulfill those dreams, start the ball rolling today. A unique spin will seal the deal.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Follow your own path. Don’t let anyone lead you astray. Take your creative ideas and run with them. Try to maintain as much control as possible without losing the deal.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will be privy to secret information today that will enable you to make money. Investments, winnings, settlements are apparent but don’t be too outspoken. Someone will be eager to talk you into doing something that will be a waste of cash and time.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Money is in the picture and advancement can be yours. You can make some changes at home that will make your place more user-friendly. This is a great day for change and starting something new.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Be careful what you ask for. Someone will get the wrong impression, leaving you to deal with an emotional situation. Limitations and frustrations can be expected where relationships are concerned and having more than one love interest is likely to confuse you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Think about your future and what you really want to do. Now is the time to make some changes to your home and to look at the possibilities that can develop should you decide to put some of your talents to work for you. Financial matters can be resolved.
