CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Cate Blanchett, 38; Tim Roth, 46; David Byrne, 55; George Lucas, 63.

Happy Birthday: Don’t count on things running smoothly. Be prepared this year to fight for what you want. Additional responsibilities will be dumped in your lap but, if you are selective in what you take on, you will fare well. Don’t be fooled by what other people tell you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): If you have something to present, promote or to push, you will have a captive audience. Make contacts through the Internet that can help you further your goals. Don’t let someone close to you stand in your way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Plenty will be hidden so don’t base your decision solely on what is apparent. Dig deeper for the details that could cause you grief should you take a risk. Listen to someone with more experience but don’t act on what anyone tells you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): There will be opportunities but things around you will move rapidly and you will have to think on your feet if you want to make the right choices. Avoid any situation that is subject to sudden changes that could affect your position or the dynamics of a group you are working with.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may be fed up and thinking about going in a new direction but, if you stick it out where you are, things will settle down, leaving you in a good position. Time is on your side. A few simple changes at home will brighten your day.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will make a great impression on the people you encounter today if you follow your heart and show your dedication to whatever cause you are pursuing. Your competitive drive will not let you down. Love is in a high cycle but avoid secret affairs.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may want to do one thing but be pushed in another direction. Stand your ground but be nice about it. Avoid disputes with family, friends and most of all, your lover.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take a short trip or spend the day with someone you love. Family gatherings or neighborhood street parties will inspire you to make some much-needed changes in your life. Broaden your circle of friends but don’t gossip.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put a little time aside for a creative project. This is a great day to finish something you’ve been working on for some time. A romantic relationship can develop or be taken to the next level.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sticking around home or dealing with family will lead to friction today. You need to spend time with people who don’t judge you and who will listen to your ideas with enthusiasm. A trip to a place you find exhilarating will help you jump-start a new project.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Tell someone how much you love him or her. A look at what you’ve done in the past, professionally, will give you greater vision into what you should be doing in the future. Change is heading your way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a great day to talk to people in the know. Community involvement will pay off in the connections you make. Appeal to the emotions of others and you will be heard.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take a look around you and you will soon realize that you are in a better position than you first thought. Love is on the rise and personal changes can be made as long as you don’t overreact or overspend. You needn’t travel to accomplish things.

Birthday Baby: You are unpredictable, exciting and imaginative. You are intelligent, affectionate and goal- oriented. You are passionate, explosive and powerful.
