CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Joe McIntyre, 36; Val Kilmer, 49; Andy Summers, 66; Anthony Hopkins, 71.

Happy Birthday: You’ll have a much better handle on what’s going on than most people this year but that doesn’t mean you should take advantage of the weak. Don’t let an emotional matter cloud your vision or stop you from doing what needs to be done.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make wise choices. If you don’t feel like celebrating, stay home and enjoy the peace and quiet. Someone may try to intimidate you into doing something you don’t want to do – be firm and say no.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Rethink your strategy if you are having problems with someone you thought you were going to move forward with professionally or personally. Don’t be afraid – pass on a partnership and move on.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stretch yourself as thin as possible if it means being able to spend time with people who can influence your future. Being organized will be the key. Plan some fun for late in the day.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may fear change but that’s exactly what you need. Make sure you are sitting in a good position financially before you leap into the upcoming year.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Money issues are likely to arise. Overspending on your part or the part of someone dependent on you must be questioned and dealt with. Trying to buy someone’s favor will only put you in the poorhouse.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If you haven’t made plans for this evening, join in the end of year festivities. This is a night to start building your momentum for the upcoming year. You will be in demand if you are a participant.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It’s party time and you will be a great addition to any guest list. Be prepared to be inviting, informative and unafraid. The future looks bright.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Pick up the phone and wish the people on your mind a happy new year. The conversations you have today will be very important for your future. There is much to be accomplished, so surround yourself with intellectual conversation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Have plans in motion for the end-of-year celebrations. Whether big or small and intimate, the company you keep today and tonight will mark the flavor of the upcoming year. Change is upon you and it’s you who makes the choices. 4 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may have left important issues to the last minute but you can still talk your way to settling whatever has been left undone. Don’t be afraid to blow your horn and display your attributes for all to see.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look back and judge your past before you leap forward into the future. Someone you once knew will make a difference to a pressing decision you have to make. An offer to utilize your time and your knowledge for something important must be considered.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Close the year with a bang. Make sure you get out with people who can make a difference to your year ahead. You have things to promote and partnerships to pursue, so make the year-end festivities work in your favor.

Birthday Baby: You are open, original and speak from the heart. You are dedicated, caring and sensitive. You are a brilliant strategist.
