CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, 35; Mariska Hargitay, 45; Gail O’Grady, 46; Richard Dean Anderson, 59.

Happy Birthday: This is your year to make strides and put the past behind you. Progressive action will impress the people who have watched you slip and slide over the years, and you’ll receive greater respect and the anticipation of good things to come. Don’t look back.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t take chances in any aspect of your life. Saying something you’ll regret or making a snap decision will both lead to problems. Take a look at what you can reform in your life.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can go after advancement and challenge anyone who stands in your way but don’t take on too much or make promises you can’t deliver. Someone in the background is watching and will step up to help if needed.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A trip will pay off in experience and learning. This is an ideal time to reassess your lifestyle. Don’t let anyone drop responsibilities in your lap that don’t belong to you. Sometimes saying no works best.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can’t slow down or stop now when it comes to your future. Personally and professionally there are decisions to make. A change at home will be worth its weight in gold, so don’t scrimp when the outcome will be so beneficial.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A little forethought will give you the edge when dealing with people who can help you. A trip can lead to closing a deal. Don’t let a relationship with someone you work with take priority over a decision you must make.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can talk and network your way to the top. You will make an impact on the people you approach and will be inspired by the response you get. Don’t hold back when you have so much to gain from promoting and presenting.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Look at both sides of every issue that arises before making a decision or taking sides. Not everything will be as you think. Before you get involved or move ahead, observe and evaluate the long-term effect.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Play to win. Not everyone will be fair but, as long as you are prepared, you will outmaneuver whoever steps in front of you. Love is in the stars – and you can make a difference to someone who has been there for you in the past.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t let anyone fool you into thinking that he or she is going to do you a favor. Do your own work and solve your own problems. A demand may lead to unwanted change but, in the end, you will benefit.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t be afraid to show a little emotion. You have as much right as anyone to get caught up in a moment of joy. A romantic encounter will lead to so much more if you follow through. A decision made now will alter your future.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s time to get rid of old debts whether they are financial, emotional or physical. Don’t be afraid to admit you have made mistakes – you can clear a path that will lead to a brighter future.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let greed get in the way of doing the right thing. Go through the proper channels and avoid trouble later on. A personal deal will influence a business deal, so consider all areas of your life before making a final decision.

Birthday Baby: You are bighearted, outspoken and intellectually engaging. You are adaptable, passionate and a believer in fair play.
