Happy Birthday: Be open and upfront in order to avoid misunderstandings this year. You will be able to see possibilities and move in a direction that will help you get ahead. Ready yourself for change – your time to rise to the top is just ahead of you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get your facts and figures straight and prepare to fight back in any situation spinning out of control. Put an end to rumors or injustice. You can win if you stand up for your rights and your beliefs.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take everyone by surprise and make some unexpected changes. Your inconsistency will confuse anyone trying to dismantle your plans. A trip can be planned that will bring you pleasure and connect you with new friends.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your flirtatious personality will attract a lot of attention as well as interested suitors. Be careful not to send the wrong signal. Be open and honest about your status and personal life.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you take things too seriously, you will leave yourself open to ridicule. A show of emotions over a situation at work or with people you deal with daily will put you in a weak position. Rely on someone you trust to give you insight.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Winnings, favors, gifts or money are in the stars. Get out and show everyone what you have to offer and let the rewards flow back to you. You can make a relationship you are in better or find a new lover, if you are single.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): By changing your surroundings or your lifestyle, you will appreciate what you have. Visiting someone you don’t see often will be an eye-opener. Overspending will cause problems and regrets.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t take unnecessary risks or give in to anyone asking you to pay his or her way. A problem with someone you work with may have more to do with the chemistry between you. Don’t give the wrong impression.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may be broadsided by a problem you didn’t realize existed. Pay attention to the people you live with or are close to. Neglect may be an issue if you have been too busy with your own projects or too friendly with someone with ulterior motives.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be taken by surprise when a personal matter results in unexpected changes. You mustn’t take a risk that will cost you emotionally. If you love someone, let him or her know how you feel. This is not the time to play games.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Avoid a confrontation with someone you have to deal with daily. A friend, relative or neighbor is likely to do something that upsets you. Anger is not the answer. Find a solution that will work well for everyone.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Find out the facts firsthand. You have to be willing to listen to both sides of a story. Love and romance are in the stars, so plan an interesting evening with friends, your lover or a singles organization.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Go back and take a look at an old project you never quite got off the ground. You will get a second chance to develop it. Reconnect with anyone you need to have in your life in order to follow through with your plans.

Birthday Baby: You are energetic, engaging and entertaining. You are clever and know how to manipulate situations to suit your needs. You show patience when it is required of you.
