Happy Birthday: You have a lot to contend with this year. Step up and take responsibility for whatever situation you find yourself in. This is not the year to complain, overreact or put the blame elsewhere.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): There is no point in getting upset over something you can’t change. Focus on something that interests you and do things that will help you get ahead.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get involved in the history of your family or take a trip to visit friends or family you haven’t seen for a while. You will discover valuable information about your past.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t trust an offer that is too good to be true. Giving up a position without securing where you are heading will leave you scrambling.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll be sensitive toward what others say and do. If you are uncertain how to respond, hold off even if it means missing out on something. Another opportunity will come along shortly if you are patient. Be strong.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take an exotic vacation or do something out of the ordinary that will inspire you to take on a project or learn something new. Keep what you are up to a secret in case you change your mind mid-stream. Follow your heart and see where it leads you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Romance is in the stars. Put everything else aside in order to nurture the most important partnership in your life. If you are single, get involved in something you feel passionately about and you will meet someone who shares your dreams for the future.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t put too much emphasis on what others want you to do. Someone will criticize you, putting a damper on your plans.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are going to have to deal with some past issues in order to spare yourself financial losses in the future. Get whatever you need in writing.
