Happy Birthday: Let your emotions play a role in what you do this year. Be true to yourself, even if it means disrupting the world around you. Not everyone will like your plans but, if you can see your way through the maze, you will come out unscathed and feeling good about who you are and what you’ve accomplished.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let love bring you down or cost you emotionally when you should be experiencing what life has to offer. You are in a high learning cycle and it’s important to try new things.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Pick up something unique for someone you love. Emotions may be hard to hide but, in the end, others will see how sensitive and compassionate you can be. Don’t make an impulsive purchase.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can present and promote a great idea and will easily drum up interest from someone who can contribute to your cause. Serious help from someone with experience will be a bonus.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get organized at home. Do a little decorating or preparation for the festive season. A change in plans will help you out financially. Talk to someone you’ve been responsible for in the past and see what he or she has to offer.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t let your generosity limit your financial situation. This may be a good time to pick up the perfect gift for someone you love but be prudent and stick to a budget. You can show you care in a creative way that isn’t costly.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your ability to think outside the box will make you a contender for advancement. Take work home where you will have the privacy and the peace and quiet to come up with some really good ideas. Love is in the stars.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Qualify your position regarding what you expect to see happen with some of the plans you have been discussing with family. It won’t be clear sailing but you can work toward a compromise and, ultimately, a solution.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is no time to get involved in talks that can be misinterpreted. Love and romance are apparent but changing partners may or may not be what’s required. You need to stabilize your situation, not make it more complicated.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Talk to as many people as you can about your plans and ideas. Change will come about if you are willing to push for what you want. Be aggressive, persuasive and to the point about your needs and wants for the future.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t let someone talk you into volunteering for something you don’t believe in. Choose the cause you are going to support and you will get far more out of it in terms of the people you meet. Finalize legal documents.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is not the time to exaggerate or to give your own spin to the way you see things. Stick to basics and you will accomplish more. Firm up a decision you’ve been asked to make and move forward.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A surprise is in order and will put you in the spotlight when revealed. Plan a trip that will bring you closer to someone you care for. Getting serious about your future intentions will help to stabilize your life and give you greater vision.
