Happy Birthday: Put yourself on the line this year. Happiness does not come without work. Now is a time of initiation but do not go overboard. A chance to get back into something you always wanted to pursue will be possible.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may get stuck doing all the work if you let someone take advantage of your experience, enthusiasm and quick response. Look out for your own interests and refuse to give too freely, even if you are asked.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There may be a lot going on in your head but this isn’t the time to let things fester. Discuss what’s really bothering you and solutions will be found.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Talk your way into a new group and you will experience a lifestyle change that is long overdue. You have just as much to offer as the next person so believe in yourself.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re a softy but, if you give in to someone, he or she will want even more from you. Offer your advice and guidance but don’t do the work for others.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Temptation must be kept at arm’s length. Question anyone who is too willing to sacrifice his or her position or reputation. An indiscretion will cause personal problems with family.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Share your concerns with someone you trust and you’ll come up with a solution to a family problem that has been keeping you awake nights. Honesty is the only way to clear these matters up so you can move on.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are probably not seeing things clearly so, before you say something you may regret, busy yourself with hobbies, pastimes or unfinished business. Problems with loved ones will escalate.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Taking a serious position regarding something you believe in will help you hook up with like-minded people. Someone considering you for a particular position will recognize your compassionate nature.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be the one to take advantage, not the one being used to benefit others. If you or someone you are close to has gone over budget, find ways to raise extra cash. It could turn into permanent income.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will be left dangling by someone trying to get you to pay for or join something that may not be the best for you. Don’t commit to anything that isn’t ironclad and to your advantage.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t be upset or angered by someone who is continually changing his or her mind. A love interest will develop with someone who has a lot in common with you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): By helping others you will position yourself for success. An unusual development will occur regarding a gift, something you find or an inheritance or settlement.

Birthday Baby: You are sensitive – a humanitarian, a Good Samaritan and a loyal friend and lover. You aren’t afraid to take an unusual route and question anyone who fears the unknown.
