Happy Birthday: You may have to take a back route this year if you want to get to your destination unscathed. Be very clear in your communications, don’t promise more than you can deliver and be practical in all your partnerships. Don’t give the impression that you can get something for nothing.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Leave the talking to someone else. Anything you say will be held against you and will cause you grief. You have enough support to take care of any pressing matter.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The more you express your likes, dislikes, ideas and plans, the more support you will get and the closer you will come to making your dreams a reality. Don’t miss an opportunity to pick up skills to enable you to earn and enjoy more.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may have some great ideas that can earn you some extra cash or help you win a settlement or contract. However, sharing what you want to do with too many people will work against you. Go it alone, using your own style and finesse.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Concentrate on your ideas and creative skills, as well as, your social life and the people who can help you advance. Trying to push your will on someone with whom you don’t agree will not help resolve the issue.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Let go of any personal affront against yourself or a loved one. If you waste your time and burn your energy on revenge, you will miss out on an important opportunity. Enjoy the people you are with. The collective effort will pay off and bring you higher status.
