Happy Birthday: Keep a handle on your reactions and it will be easier to get what you want. Opportunities are available to you this year if you take a leap of faith. Trust in what an older, more experienced friend tells you. It will lead to your personal, professional and emotional gains.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your personal interactions may be difficult if you or someone you are close to overreacts. Don’t let situations escalate. Take care of the small but important details but don’t pass up an opportunity to do something exciting.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t waste time trying to convince others. Instead, follow through on a small scale, building something solid that will give you full jurisdiction. Love is in the stars and an evening of playful entertainment should be your intent.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may want a quick fix for a money problem you have but gambling is not the answer. Use your ingenuity and put your ideas in the hands of someone who can help you turn around your finances.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotions will escalate if you disagree with someone you live with or are close to. You’ll have regrets if you react without thinking. Instead, give yourself time to think about whatever situation prevails.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t let a secret come between you and one of your close friends. Getting involved with someone who is already in a relationship will end in disaster. Spend time with someone who can help you earn more, invest more wisely or find ways to pay for improvements.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t sit back, letting others take credit for your expertise. The more entertaining you are, the more help you will muster. Do some good for something you believe in. Donate, offer services or lend a helping hand.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t get into a scuffle with someone who can make your life miserable. Put time and energy into something you enjoy. Self-improvement or learning a new skill will bring you in contact with people who can make a difference to your future.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Trying something new will spark interest in what you are doing and give you some ideas that can be developed into something profitable or at least interesting. Listen to comments made and it will save you financially.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you are relentless in your pursuits, you will make money and gather interest and partners who are willing to put in a fair share. Collecting old debts or paying off what you owe will lead to a helping hand from someone.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Expect someone to cause upset or to disrupt your plans. If you are prepared to go ahead full force, you will avoid some of the anguish caused by people who cannot make up their minds. Be serious about what you want to do.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can make major changes in your life if you use your head, your good ideas and your strength and courage to put your plans in motion. There is a chance that someone who owes you will come through for you, so don’t hesitate to ask.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let someone talk you into leaving work unfinished. Fun is in the stars, so work quickly and you will enjoy the remainder of the day. A strong partnership will form and good ideas will develop.

Birthday Baby: You take your home and family life seriously. You have plenty of charm, are open to suggestions and always follow that small voice within you.
