Happy Birthday: You are the grand master of the art of getting what you want this year. You will know how to challenge any situation you face. You are bright and articulate and can win the hearts and favors of people who can help you get ahead. Weigh what it is you really want before you jump in with both feet.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t give in to idle threats brought on by emotions. Taking a loving and understanding approach will help to mellow out the situation and allow you to rectify the problem. Don’t let discord escalate.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Cooperation, restraint and understanding will be required if you are forced to deal with added responsibilities. Someone older may try to take over. Before giving in, evaluate how logical it is to put your life in his or her hands.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make special plans for the weekend. Good fortune, good times and good results can all be yours if you take charge. An opportunity will develop if you talk to your boss, a professor or a friend who needs a partner with your skills.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You cannot count on someone to cover your back. Stress in a relationship will cause you to make a decision you may regret. Take more time to see how things unfold before you make your move.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Good things are heading your way both personally and professionally. Network with your peers and you will get wind of something that interests you. A move or change in your living conditions is evident.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may have to use a little force to get what you want but, in the end, you will succeed. Pitch in and work hard. A new hobby or activity that takes your mind off your worries will help you in more ways than you realize.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Love is on the rise, so open your doors and your heart to someone you care for. The future looks bright if you reconcile anything from the past that you’ve left undone. You can then move forward without hesitation.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Let the past go so you can focus on the here and now. A problem while traveling or discussing family matters will result if you have been wishy-washy about what you can offer. Rethink your motives before you proceed.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Love is within reach – all you have to do is make the first move. You will have greater insight into what you are capable of doing and how far you can go. Consider retraining, additional education or starting your own business.
