CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: LL Cool J, 41; Emily Watson, 42; Faye Dunaway, 68; Andy Rooney, 90.

Happy Birthday: Push to finish off whatever is unfinished. It will be getting more for less that will count in these economic times. As long as you stick to a budget, you will do fine. A pending settlement or contract can be closed but only if you are persistent and fight hard for what you deserve.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your hard work will eventually pay off but, if you are expecting rewards now, you will be disappointed. Do what you can for people who can help you in the future. Look at the big picture.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If you are willing to stick to your plans and not allow anyone to tempt you to deviate and go over budget, you will succeed. You must be strict and stick to a safe schedule.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let emotional matters stand in your way. Focus beyond if you want to accomplish. Look at your options and learn by past mistakes and you will make the right decision. Someone you used to regard highly may be able to shed light on a situation.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take action instead of waiting to see what everyone else is going to do. A change may not be your idea of a good time but, once you make the move, you will realize it was long overdue. Emotional matters can be dealt with.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Impulsive responses will not get you what you want. Sit back for a change and let others make the first move. A deal can be complete if you take an approach that is different from what your competition is offering.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll be up and down and emotionally erratic if you don’t put things in perspective. Rely on your practical sense to get you through whatever dilemma you face. Once you clear up any uncertainty, everything will work out.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you can size down or cut corners, it will ease the stress created by overspending. An idea you have may be more marketable than you realize. Talk to someone with experience and you will get good solid advice.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t trust anyone, not even the people closest to you. Intentional or not, someone will cause you grief by letting unauthorized information leak. A change in a personal relationship will be emotional but to your benefit.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may have to take on a second job or develop a service that is in demand. Taking a chance or overspending in the process will defeat the purpose. Put travel and dealing with superiors on hold for now.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have to go where the money is. It’s time for you to take advantage of the situation – as bad as it may be for someone else, it can be a gold mine for you if you are swift to pick up the pieces.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Contracts, legal matters and settlements can all be put to rest if you follow through with what’s required of you. Love may be going through some uncertain times but talks should help to rectify any problems you face.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Someone may withhold important information you require to make a decision. Don’t let anyone force you to move forward when you aren’t certain or ready. Emotional issues will surface, causing confusion and internal problems.

Birthday Baby: You are sensitive, emotional and caring but aren’t taken in by anyone who wants a free ride. You are a thinker and a doer. You are discerning.
