Happy Birthday: Serious problems need serious action. You should be able to come up with a workable solution to mend the past and position you well for the future. There is nothing out of your reach – only your indecisiveness or lack of confidence to move forward.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Know what you are talking about before you enter the forum. Confidence and knowledge will help you excel. Once you have convinced others that your ideas are sound, you can succeed.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Raise standards by setting good examples. A door will open that can lead to greater travel, education and a change in your current direction. Listen to what others have to offer but don’t give away too much.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Hold back when it comes to emotions and what’s going down in your personal or social scene. The more you say, the more difficult it will be to avoid the fallout that comes with uncertainty. Don’t give in to demands but avoid anger.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get serious about your home and family. Change your residence or make adjustments or purchases that will add to your comfort zone. A partnership you are in will flourish if you work toward a common goal.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t give in to pressure being put on you by someone who doesn’t really know your situation. Book yourself in to your local spa or have some fun with friends but, most of all, keep things light. A little shopping will get you into the spirit of giving.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Communication will be the key. You can clear up any concerns you may have by putting a halt to things you do not like. A special evening will result in meeting someone who captivates you or discovering something new about the person you are with.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It’s important to stay on top of things, especially in your personal life. Overspending is apparent, especially if you are trying to please someone you love. If someone is pressuring you, stop him or her quickly.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A love relationship you are in will be encouraging and will lead to more confidence in your everyday decisions. Discuss your plans with colleagues. Don’t hesitate to make some critical changes at home.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be prepared to face opposition and possible disappointment if you aren’t well versed regarding what you want and how you can achieve it. By showing no signs of concern, you can move quickly once you get the approval you need.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Start to tie up business that needs to be complete before year’s end. A commitment or promise you make to someone will help to push through a deal you’ve been working on. Love is opening up to new levels.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look into your future by researching your options. A new skill will help you begin the new year on the right foot. Check out the possibilities and you will not be disappointed with your prospects for the future.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Worthy causes will introduce you to a host of interesting people who will continue to offer you something in return in the new year. Don’t be afraid to speak up about your plans, especially to those who have an understanding of things you need.
