Happy Birthday: If there is something you want, grab it and hold on tight. Now is your chance for the happiness that has eluded you in the past. Someone of importance to you will make a difference to your future if you make the first move. This year is about mixing the past with the future.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Impulsive actions will be costly. Problems while traveling will cause delays and can affect your well-being. Focus more on what you can do for others and you will reap the highest returns.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t base what you have to do on what others say. Reach inside and discover what really matters to you. A change is in the stars and your best response is to move on.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a great time to explore new avenues, learn a new trade or make a move that will enhance your chances of getting ahead. Past acquaintances will be of help now, so don’t hesitate to reconnect. A short trip will pay off.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let an old love cause problems in your current relationship. Being pushy or having to deal with someone who is will be upsetting. Before you get all wrapped up in the melodrama, be an observer instead of a participant.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may have taken on too much. Relying on someone you have partnered with will help but it won’t fix the long-term problem. Express the way you feel. Good suggestions will be offered and can lead to a workable solution.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Investments must be based on facts and figures, not emotions and hearsay. Fast-cash schemes will lead to losses. This is not the time to invest in others or to make changes, unless it is sizing down or setting a strict budget.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll be given the means to make considerable changes that will alter your personal life. Children will have an impact and so will someone from your past. Put time aside for the ones you love and discuss future plans.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your emotions will be difficult to control. You have much to digest and to do if you want to stay afloat. Be willing to change your lifestyle in order to maintain what you have and to be fair to the people who have given you so much in the past.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Home, friends and family will be what count. Someone from your past will have a suggestion or proposal you cannot turn down. Don’t let your own uncertainty hold you back. It’s a new day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t let love get you down. Show compassion and understanding but don’t give in to unreasonable demands. Now is not the time to show your emotions. Listen but refrain from making a decision or promise.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are right on target and ready to get on with your life. The developments that have occurred will enable you to make a go of something you’ve always wanted to do. Consider how you can implement the past with the present. A partnership looks good.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep things to yourself and you will avoid setbacks. Don’t let someone else’s uncertainty be your concern or stand in your way. A pushy person may try to lead you in the wrong direction.

Birthday Baby: You are a giver, a lover and a just and fair person. You offer solutions, good advice and honest opinions from an unusual perspective.
