CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Scarlett Pomers, 21; Jon Stewart, 47; Judd Nelson, 50; Ed Harris, 59

Happy Birthday: You will set the stage and direct what plays out this year. This is not the time to reevaluate but rather to push forward. Changes at home and to your personal life must be put into play in order to stabilize your position in the future. Home improvements, financial gains and being true to yourself are what it is all about this year.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Shopping will lead to some excellent buys for gifts. A settlement or debt can be expected. Your luck is changing and the chance to get involved in an interesting pastime will lead to a good friendship.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Tie up any costly, unfinished business by the end of the year. An investment you’ve been watching will lead to financial gains if you act now. Visit someone you respect who could use your assistance.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Challenge anyone who stands in your way. Use your knowledge and intelligence and you will get the upper hand regarding changes you want made at home and at work. An interesting proposition will give you something to think about.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you let your emotions take over, you will not get your way. Don’t keep changing your mind or you will make any competition you face look good. Put yourself on the line if you want to get ahead.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Plan an adventure or at least a trip back to places you enjoy. Getting together with old friends and discussing plans for the new year will help you know what you can expect. Make sure that, if you get involved in a partnership, both of you are offering equally.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do whatever it takes to stabilize and secure your future. Talk to the people you know you can rely on, but don’t give away too much information. Listen, observe and reassess your situation. Get your personal paperwork in order.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Have a little fun, get out with friends or colleagues and you will meet someone who interests you. A new partnership will get you thinking about an adventure you’d like to take part in. Get involved in a benefit or community service you believe in.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There are changes coming your way, allowing you greater creative freedom and the help you need to finish a project. Talk about your plans to someone interested in what you have to offer. There is money heading your way.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Decorating or making a physical move from one place to another will pay off. There is money to be made and the possibility of coming into cash or a very nice gift is likely. Don’t sell yourself short.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Take your time. You don’t have to give someone an answer just because you are asked. Added responsibilities are likely to develop due to older family members. Emotional matters will escalate.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t stop now because someone you are emotionally attached to is trying to stifle your progress. Jealousy is apparent. A partnership that is far better for you is heading your way. Don’t settle for second best.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It’s not the best time to form partnerships but, if you can build a tangible concept into something worthwhile, you will get interest from someone looking for a good idea or plan. Get whatever you discuss in writing.

Birthday Baby: You are aggressive, popular and willing to go the distance. You are a good friend, a loyal companion and a crusader of good causes.
