Happy Birthday: Take a long hard look at your situation — be prepared to jump ship if necessary or take on whatever appears to be your best bet financially. Rely on your personality and good track record to get you what you want. A personal decision regarding your health, well-being and lifestyle will ensure you stay in good shape for things to come.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Quiet time must be scheduled in. Pace yourself and don’t turn down any help being offered. Someone will criticize you if you spend too much or take on too many duties.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): See as many of your friends as possible. Book a trip or surprise everyone with an early arrival and you will gain some quality time with people you love. Now is the time to have fun.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Love and romance are in the stars. Share your joy and your plans with someone who is just as much into you as you are into him or her. If you are single, you are likely to meet someone new through an old friend or relative.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t worry about the money aspect of the holiday season if there is nothing you can do about it. Enjoy what’s being offered and offer what you can in return. This is not a contest, it’s a time of love, peace and sharing.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t be tricked into thinking that someone is on the same page as you. Consider if you have been fair in the way you presented your intentions. A little space may be required to get a clearer picture of where you stand.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Enjoy the younger people in your life. You may want to get back into an old hobby or activity. A couple of quick changes and you will have everyone you wanted to do something nice for covered. Don’t get involved in a family feud.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Visit friends or get out with colleagues. Staying home or dealing with personal problems you haven’t been able to resolve will be a waste of time. Overindulgence will set you back personally, emotionally and financially.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Volunteer your services or donate to a cause you believe in. Your generosity will enhance your reputation and introduce you to people who can assist you in the future. Open your doors to friends and family.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Spending time with people who mean a lot to you will give you an opportunity to show how much you care. An opportunity to get involved in something different will help you down the road.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let your emotions give away a secret you must keep. You have to be fair to the people who count in your life by sharing with them and them alone. Your strength will help someone you care about do better.
