Happy Birthday: You are in control even if you don’t think you are. If something trivial needs to be done, be willing to let someone else handle it while you focus on the big picture.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t give in to demands. Instead, choose who will accompany you. Jumping to conclusions or letting your outrage get the better of you will not bring results or help you depict a good image of yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll be fine-tuned when it comes to picking up information if you listen to the pros and cons of a different philosophy or lifestyle. Pick and choose which aspects of what you have learned can be incorporated into your day-to-day life.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Try not to succumb to pressure from a colleague using emotional blackmail to manipulate a situation. You are better and smarter and, if you are truthful and go to the top with your objectives, you will be the one to break ground in the end.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Step outside your world for a moment and you will see clearly that you are dealing with someone who isn’t thinking straight. Get away from the madness. Sign up for anything that will take your mind off your personal troubles.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ve let others hold you back for too long. Get involved in new friendships but, most of all, learn to say no to the people dragging you down. Recognize who’s causing the problem and do something about it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make alterations that ensure your success. If you aren’t the one to make the changes, someone else will make them for you. It’s better to stay in control than to be saddled with what someone else wants for you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
Get on with your plans before it’s too late. Procrastination will lead to disrespect and cause you to fall behind. Don’t give in to demands. Stop waffling and start producing.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If you gave your all trying to keep the peace or bring people together and it didn’t happen, move on to safer territory that has the potential for you to be successful professionally and personally. Change will be rewarding in the end.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Not everyone will be on your side. Look at the big picture and decide if something is worth your while. Refuse to let someone make you feel you owe him or her something. Turn the tables – you can win.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Show your emotions and you will gain popularity. If you can make others feel a part of something, the rest will fall into place. Relate by using your own life stories and, before you know it, others will come on board.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let your emotions lead you down the wrong path. You may feel sorry for someone but you cannot bail this person out. Be the one who listens and makes suggestions but don’t do what needs to be done on your own. Stand your ground.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A false impression may prompt you to do something uncalled for. Wait until the dust settles and you have a clear picture of what’s to come. Someone with familiarity will be able to tell you when and how to make your move.
