CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Kiran Desai, 37; Charlie Sheen, 43; Valerie Perrine, 65; Eileen Brennan, 76.

Happy Birthday: Don’t let anyone put one over on you. Take care of your own personal matters first so you can cater to your dependents or anyone else for that matter. Shake off anyone who is leaning on you so you can take advantage of some new possibilities within your reach. You will be much more effective in the lives of those you love if you achieve your own goals first.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You should probably question a business or personal relationship you are in. It’s time to request answers if you don’t understand exactly what’s going on and why the boundaries of a situation you are facing have changed.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Emotions will be skyrocketing and troubled waters will make you wonder how secure you are. Stick to what you know and don’t take on too much to compensate or save someone else’s neck.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Ignore comments made out of anger, jealousy or spite. Keep your head clear and your mind alert. Love is in a high cycle. If you put a little effort into your relationships, you will have fun and stabilize your situation.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may feel like speaking out but, in your emotional state, you will probably say something you’ll regret. Demands, ultimatums or pressuring others to do things your way will backfire. You won’t win if you fight.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can talk anyone into anything if you have your facts straight and your ideas ready to present. A trip, meetings or something you believe in will secure your position in a competitive market. A friend or experienced ally will help you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Shyness will hold you back. Let everyone see what you can do. Advancement is in the stars, if you aren’t afraid to present what you have to offer. Change is heading your way; prepare to jump at any opportunity.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Overreacting and causing a fuss before realizing the beneficial changes that are taking place will be your downfall. Relax, wait, and then comment, make alterations or back away. Time is on your side.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can rely on the old, experienced people watching over you to come to your rescue. Trust in the advice offered. Your reactions will reassure your supporters that you are still worth backing.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Falling for someone you meet through work or getting closer in a personal relationship you’ve already established will do you good and help to stabilize your life. Don’t let someone’s negativity hold you back or tamper with a decision you make.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Fuzzy thinking will result if you take on too much. Don’t give away information that can jeopardize your expectations. Expect someone to take advantage of you if you don’t protect your ideas. Caution is your best defense.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You have a good idea that will help your finances out, so stick to it and watch your money grow. Set up a budget that can help you out in business, even if it does restrict your playtime activities. Stay with it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t leap when it is clear that too much could potentially go wrong. Someone with experience will teach you the ropes and help you make the right decision at the right time. You don’t have to go it alone.

Birthday Baby: You are charming, eloquent and can make a statement with appearance alone. You are opportunistic, aggressive and will always reach for your ultimate goal.
