Happy Birthday: Don’t be afraid to take a different approach to the way you do things. Your ability to be unique will draw the attention and results you are looking for. It’s time to get things out into the open and start living your life the way you want. A personal or professional partnership will pay off. Your numbers are 6, 10, 17, 22, 35, 37, 46

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Challenge yourself. An unusual proposal will lead to travel and excelling at a skill that you need to develop. Don’t let someone’s needs hold you back. Focus on how best to benefit the people you are closest to. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A friendship may be a risk because of how you dealt with a situation. An unrealistic view of what needs to be done to fix what has gone wrong will lead to greater controversy and questioning. Don’t let a misunderstanding get in the way of an important relationship. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stick to basics. As soon as you venture off the beaten track, someone will stand in your way. Abide by the rules and take the advice given by those in a position to make or break you. 

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll find it difficult to concentrate. Emotions will be hard to contain. Relationships with friends, family and partners will have to be dealt with upfront. Voice your true feelings in order to get what you want. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Proceed with caution, especially when dealing with emotional issues. Secrets are being kept and the only way you will know where you stand is to ask. A previous agreement may overrule your demands. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone you have worked with in the past will be able to contribute to the task at hand now. Don’t settle for second best. Your skills and talent are all that’s required to achieve the success you’ve been striving for. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There will be many options and it will be vital that you do what’s required, for the right reasons. Your task isn’t that hard but, if you let love and emotions take precedence, you will lose ground. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do not use emotional manipulation to get what you need or you may have to give back more in the end. Making changes that take others by surprise will allow you to feel out the climate of a situation you face. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It’s time to wheel and deal your way to the top. Make the most of any tidbit you get wind of. The people who know you best will question what you are doing and want substantiating evidence to back your claims. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stop being so generous with someone who has used you as a safety net. The more you do to build your own assets, the better positioned you will be in the future to take care of those who mean the most to you. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Do what’s required of you. By taking action, you will motivate others to do the same. Find ways to help a cause you believe in or to reach out to someone who faces problems you have experienced in the past. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t believe everything you hear; do some fact-finding on your own. Love and romance are looking good but you mustn’t let your personal life or emotional state alter a decision you must make. 

Birthday Baby: You have determination and are hard working. You are serious-minded and will do your part to keep things running smoothly.
