Happy Birthday: Don’t give in to pressure this year. Keep things simple and don’t allow temptation to cost you a bundle emotionally or financially. Set a budget to ensure a safe and worry-free year. Handle sudden and unexpected changes with discretion. Don’t spend irresponsibly in the year ahead.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Rethink your strategy and make inquiries that help you chose the right course of action. You can obtain goals that were not accomplished in the past. Success is just around the corner.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The people you have to deal with professionally and personally will test and challenge you. Listen carefully to what’s required before you put your time and effort into what’s being asked of you. Don’t feel guilty if you don’t want to participate.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t take chances when it comes to getting things done and dealing with others. Changing your mind will lead to conflicts you can do without. Don’t lead someone on when you have no intention of accommodating the requests being made.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your intuitive insight will enable you to choose what will work best for you. You will be able to see the possibilities that exist if you make some changes. Love and romance will be beckoning you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It’s the generosity and kindness you offer the underdog that will help you realize what’s truly important to you. Socializing with people you don’t know well will bring you the greatest returns and lead to new friendships.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Getting together with old friends will give you a better perspective on your present situation. Greater personal growth can be expected from the experiences you engage in now. A much clearer view of what’s ahead will develop.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You have to think matters through carefully, especially when they have to do with your financial future or position. You have to find out first hand before making a promise or signing up for something. Rely on your own resources.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone who is withholding information or who is difficult to deal with will confuse you if you are too gullible. Keep your distance in order to finish what you started so you don’t disappoint someone who is depending on you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Temptation will set in, causing you to get involved in something that may be dubious. Consider how the choices you make will alter your future as well as the future of the people close to you. Don’t get involved in something questionable.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Combine business with pleasure and you will leave a lasting impression. You will discover the importance of following through with your plans and enjoying what you do. Get in touch with someone from your past.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Keep the peace, no matter how hard it is. If you overreact or do things that someone doesn’t like, you will pay dearly for your lack of consideration. Exaggeration will lead to conflicts.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t brag. Someone you know will be jealous and cause problems. You will have to defend yourself in order to save your reputation. A cash payout is heading your way — be quiet about your good fortune if you want to hang onto it.

Birthday Baby: You are quick-witted and fast to make a decision. You are determined and dedicated to your own cause and can easily get others to follow you.
