Happy Birthday: Distance yourself from the emotional melodrama and do what’s best for yourself. The changes you make now will set the stage for the future.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Consider making a change that will help you expand in an area you feel will better suit you. A trip will be informative but could lead to some problems if you don’t have your personal papers in order.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll have plenty of energy to burn but, if you don’t put it to good use, you may become anxious and emotional. Added responsibilities may be pushed your way but, if you are adamant about getting others to pitch in and help, you will get the job done quickly.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Accept the changes that come your way but don’t initiate them yourself. Consider how you can make your home more comfortable and the people who depend on you feel secure.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Rely on your memory and your past experience to get ahead now. An older friend, relative or associate will have an interesting way of describing something, making you want to get involved.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Put your heart and soul into something you enjoy doing. Extra cash will come from an unusual source but be frugal. A social event will result in a new idea, partnership or love interest.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make a contribution to something you believe in. Being active will lead to opportunities you don’t want to miss out on. A new job or a course that will allow you to earn more money looks positive.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Just when you think you have everything and everyone figured out, you will discover you don’t. Your emotional confusion could cause your being misled by someone. Being observant will serve you best today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have way more happening than you realize. Don’t get caught up in the little things or with people who want to hold you back. Be responsible and you will be able to turn something you’ve worked on diligently into a profitable endeavor.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone will give you a hard time if he or she doesn’t like the personal or financial choices you’ve been making. Communication will run amuck if you don’t spell things out but being blunt will also cause trouble. Travel will lead to problems. Stay put.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stick to your original plans, regardless of what’s being dangled in front of you. Someone may put pressure on you financially or legally – don’t fall for it. You are more in control than you realize.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will be too stubborn to see what’s actually going on. Getting jealous or trying to hide the truth will only get you into more trouble. Avoid overspending, overreacting and overindulging.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t change your lifestyle because someone else does. If you aren’t happy at work or with your financial situation, you can make a change but do it smartly. Don’t leave one place without having somewhere else to go.

Birthday Baby: You are determined, proud and stubborn. You know what you want and aren’t afraid to go after it. You are creative, entertaining and expressive but sometimes unreasonable.
