Happy Birthday: Be ready to take advantage of every opportunity because this year could be a turning point in your life. You will make new friends, discover new interests and expand your mind as long as you explore every avenue available to you. Don’t sit idle and watch life pass you by.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Getting angry will not get you what you want. You have to set your own standards and stick to your plan of attack if you want to be successful. Too much involvement from outsiders will set you back.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take a powerful approach to whatever you do but don’t give away your secrets. You have to walk a fine line today if you want things to move in your favor. Someone will use emotional tactics to cause you to lose focus.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t get involved with poor choices made by others. You don’t want to be blamed by association. Focus on work, your position, your family and the improvements you can make in all areas.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can make some interesting changes at home that will improve your life and your outlook. Be careful not to let someone talk you into spending money on things you don’t really need. Keep it simple.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may be talked into doing something that is far beyond your means or that can lead to trouble within partnerships. Overreacting toward someone you work with or must interact with will set the stage for the next phase in your life.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A change in a partnership will be to your advantage, so don’t fight the inevitable. Observe others’ actions and follow your own path in order to achieve the most. Don’t be fooled by a big talker or a tempting offer.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Not everyone is going to get what it is you are trying to do but that cannot slow you down. Arguments can wait – what’s important is accomplishment. Conservative individuals should be kept in the dark until you have something concrete to share.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may have to be a little aggressive in order to bypass the obstacles in your way. Too many questions will leave you in an awkward position. Keep things simple and push as hard as you can to make things happen.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There are changes to be made and options to be put into play. Be adventurous and try something new. The more inventive you are, the further you will go. If you aren’t true to yourself, nothing will satisfy you in the end.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Tie up any loose ends before you decide to move on. If you need to make a point, now is the time to do so. Right now, the money you make or have should be kept in a safe place for your own benefit and security.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll be a little out of control emotionally, physically and financially. Don’t take on too much or promise what you cannot deliver. Keep things small and within your reach if you want to be successful.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There has been too much left unsaid to move forward with your plans. Your patience will bring you the answers and the approval you need forward. Once you have everything and everyone in position, you will be able to move fast.

Birthday Baby: You are incredibly innovative and imaginative. You are engaging and express yourself well. You are eager to make reforms.
