Happy Birthday: Move fast to make the most of the opportunities that you come across this year. Strive to be unique and to contribute something that will set you apart. There is plenty to gain if you are smart, efficient, keep your costs down and fine-tune what you produce.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t stop or slow down when you are so close to getting what you want. You have some fabulous ideas. A friendship that offers information, guidance and equal opportunity is available. Don’t misinterpret the possibilities.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll lose out if you let someone you have an emotional attachment to ruin your plans or hold you back. Call the shots instead of letting someone else rule your world. Mingle with people offering mutual benefits.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep any information that may work against you hidden. You have to be smart about the way you approach what you want. A little Gemini charm will get you into some interesting conversations. Don’t limit yourself.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can make a difference if you take your best shot at something you believe in. Your ability to pull things together and be responsible for the outcome will prove your leadership skills. Demonstrate your efficiency.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is not the time to gamble or make promises that will leave you short emotionally, financially or personally. A lover’s spat can be expected if you have fallen short on a promise you made. Don’t let anyone bully you into overspending.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put time aside for someone you enjoy being around or from whom you can learn. A great experience will lead to some interesting changes at home, making your life easier. Communication must be honest.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The time spent relaxing and enjoying a little time away from your regular routine will do you good and inspire you to start something new. Don’t let someone’s jealousy ruin your time or your plans. Put yourself first.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t rely on someone to come through with a promise. A twist in a relationship or partnership you are involved in will upset your world but, in the end, will push you to get involved with someone who can offer you more, creatively and financially.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Question your motives before you get into something you may not want to finish. A change at home will leave you with little choice. Visit someone who may be able to help you out initially and give you suggestions for attaining your goals.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Think about how others will react before agreeing to a life-altering choice. A move or renovation to your premises will raise your assets. Build a space to accommodate some of the projects you want to work on from home.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may get caught in a lie if you agree to help someone without having all the facts. Not everyone around you is trustworthy. You’ll find it difficult to hide your feelings if someone disappoints you. Get things out in the open.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your need to jump from one thing to another will annoy someone counting on you for help. Try to address the issues succinctly. Not everyone will be as quick to catch on as you. Don’t judge or criticize what others do or say.

Birthday Baby: You are creative, innovative and a great storyteller. You are aggressive, strong-minded, unpredictable and secretive.
