CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Shawn Ashmore, 29; Rachel McAdams, 32; Yo-Yo Ma, 53; Simon Cowell, 49.

Happy Birthday: You will be inclined to take things the wrong way, especially in your personal life. Judge carefully your motives and those of others.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): If you try to do things that you know little about, you will fall short and feel bad. Listen to someone who is doing some good for the community or a group you are involved with.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Personal and professional partnerships can be altered or developed if you are diplomatic. You’ll be surprised how much you can gain just by using common sense, being practical and making the people around you feel good.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Pause before you make a move. It will be difficult to reverse a mistake. You will need to back up your claims with facts. Chances are good he or she will think you are a spendthrift.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can make a personal and professional change that will better suit your needs and your lifestyle. Don’t worry about the little complaints you get at home. Believe in yourself and follow your heart.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t give in to demands or to someone trying to manipulate your time. You have a great way of putting things today, so tell it like it is. Stretching the truth will keep things colorful but don’t go too far or someone will be upset.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put some pressure on the people you need to do their fair share and it will happen. Children or youth-oriented activities will give you ideas for helping your community.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Calm down and focus on something you enjoy doing. Don’t get dragged into a fight or meddle in someone else’s business or overreact to emotional issues. Strive for perfection.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take a turn at something you have ignored or avoided in the past and you will discover you have the skills required to do a good job. Offer your services to a group or organization that has something to offer you in return. Love is taking on a whole new meaning.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t let your stubbornness cause you to make a professional mistake. Don’t count on something happening until it actually takes place. Let everyone else make his or her move first. Being last can sometimes be best.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t give in to emotional whims. You are far too practical to get yourself involved in something with too many variables. Talks will be misleading because whoever is handing out the facts is probably not being realistic.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let love cost you financially. Set up a budget that will encourage both you and your loved ones to save so you don’t suffer the stress that comes with having difficulty paying your bills.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Someone may offer to help you out but, before you accept, consider your colleague’s motives. You can bet you will be asked to give something in return and you may not be willing or able to oblige.

A change in your financial status is apparent.

Birthday Baby: You are loving, compassionate and willing to make sacrifices. You are an effective communicator and adapt well to change.
