CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Katherine Heigl, 31; Damon Evans, 60; Dwight Shultz, 62; Pete Best, 68

Happy Birthday: You really need to get away, if not physically then mentally. Explore new people, places and possibilities. You don’t have to spend money to discover — just be open-minded and eager to learn. Change is upon you, so embrace what’s to come and ignore those who just don’t get what you are trying to accomplish.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): It’s your Aries speed, constant motion and reluctance to stop that will enable you to excel. Don’t give anyone, including those in charge, the chance to ponder what you are doing until you are finished and satisfied with the results.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Consider how you can please the people you care about. You will be inclined to spend a little more than you probably should but, if you set a budget first, you will have a better chance of sticking to what you can afford.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will be exuberant about the things you want to do but, if you go at it too aggressively, you will face opposition that will slow you down or stifle your plans altogether. Be positive you can handle the heat before you put pressure on others.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Being positive, loving and willing to compromise will make all the difference. A journey that connects you to your past or someone you once knew will turn out to be a lesson. A change in your current responsibilities is evident.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do whatever is required of you with passion, spirit and the desire to do the best you can. Volunteering your services will turn into a networking affair. A geographical change will help you out when it comes to job hunting.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Counting on someone else will be a letdown. Love is in the stars and an emotional issue can be dealt with quickly so you can move forward. There are changes to be made in your personal life.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A unique encounter with someone you enjoy talking to will turn into a much bigger deal — adding options to your current plans. Consider what’s happening at home and make the necessary adjustments

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Self-deception will be the enemy. Look beyond what is most apparent and ask yourself the tough questions regarding your feelings. Stop complaining and do something about the things that bother you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You know what’s required of you and how to bend and compromise when necessary, so get your diplomatic personality working. Don’t get involved in anything you don’t have time for or you will do a poor job and face complaints.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will be expected to take on more than you want. Your personal papers will reveal something that needs to be taken care of before year’s end. Secure your financial position and don’t let anyone take advantage of you financially.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your confusion will show if you start to venture down the wrong path. Don’t make a move without considering everyone involved and the circumstances you face. Someone is likely to be deceptive to get you to do something questionable.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Concentrate on doing things for others instead of making promises you have no intention of fulfilling. Assess your past relationships and consider why they didn’t work. You may be just as much to blame as the people you have been involved with.

Birthday Baby: You are bright and articulate. You are an adventurer, willing to explore different philosophies, traditions and beliefs.
