CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Lance Bass, 28; Jay Aston, 46; Randy Travis, 48; Pia Zadora, 53

Happy Birthday: Make changes that will free up time to pursue some of your own dreams instead of always helping others accomplish theirs. Don’t hold yourself back because you don’t have the confidence to move forward. Stop worrying about failure and focus on the moment instead of the future.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let the unexpected stand in your way. When hit with adversity or change, deal with it swiftly and keep moving. You instinctively will do what’s best for yourself. Love is on the rise.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): An older or more experienced individual will give you some good advice. A money deal can be made or an old debt collected. You will have to take the bad with the good today. Be fair in your assessments of others.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will feel pushed and pulled emotionally and mentally. You will have to take control if you don’t want to be railroaded into something that doesn’t really serve your needs. Focus on home and the changes you can make there.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Something can go desperately wrong if you don’t protect yourself from rumors. Speak up if you want to receive credit for the work you’ve done. Not everyone will be as honest and forthcoming as you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can play the game but you can be sure that you will get a run for your money. You have to have everything in order or someone will take advantage of your weakness and sail past you. Don’t lose out because you aren’t fully prepared.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Watch out – someone is out to get you so be aboveboard in everything you do. Personal problems may preoccupy you but that’s exactly what the competition is hoping for. Don’t lose out because someone is playing games with your head and your heart.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You have to get away or at least do something fun. You will be a social butterfly attracting attention, love and interesting people. An idea you have will gather interest and perhaps even give you an opportunity to meet someone or travel somewhere unusual.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have everything in order and you are more than ready to present what you have to offer. An energetic approach will get you what you want. It’s time to finally get something back from all your years of hard work.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be confused by the reaction you get today, but you shouldn’t be. Think back to what you have done in the past and you will realize that someone you know is getting you back for something you did then. Grovel a bit and put it behind you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A money deal looks good, property investments, renovations, reselling something, settlements, surrenders or rebates are all in a high cycle and should be taken advantage of. Love and romance look very promising.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take a fresh look at an old idea and you may come up with a new way to market it. Don’t let someone you love get you down. He or she is probably going through a tough time and taking it out on you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Secret affairs, private matters and information that shouldn’t be shared will be your problem today. You can’t trust anyone and you should not let your emotions take over, leading you into tempting territory.

Birthday Baby: You are a strong contender and an eager participant. You are steadfast, earnest and very changeable. You are difficult to read and exciting to be around.
