Happy Birthday: You may have to do a few extra things in order to win favors this year. Pick and choose your battles wisely. Consider your early years and, if you have gotten off track, do your best to start over. It’s never too late to begin again or to give your all to something you believe in.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Put forth your best effort and you will reach your professional and financial goals. This is a great day to make some personal alterations to boost your confidence and enable you to do things that you may have been reluctant to try in the past. Domestic issues may surface.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taking time out to make some much-needed changes at home will pay off. You can add value to something you have to offer. A change in a friendship will allow you the freedom to try something new.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will be faced with far more than you anticipated, making it difficult to carry out your promises. A work-related opportunity will open up, however, compromising your code of ethics may be requested.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Whether you travel physically, mentally or down the information highway, the end result will be the same. What you learn and the people you meet will enable you to flex your muscles in a sticky situation that needs immediate attention.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Socializing will be your thing but refrain from divulging any information that may compromise you late in the day. Keep things light and playful. Romance or improving your current relationship will lead to a brighter future.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Personal problems will complicate your life. Your indifference will be what saves you if someone tries to trick you into doing something you don’t want to do. Make positive changes to your personal life, regardless of what others do.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t give in to peer pressure. If something doesn’t fit your lifestyle, back away. It’s more important that you finish what you start and strive to reach your goals than it is to satisfy someone else’s whims.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Turn on your Scorpio charm. Your fascination with the people you meet will bring about a very special connection, changing your way of thinking and your course of action. Someone you love will broaden your awareness.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Experience may count but so will fresh ideas and the desire to do your best. Take what information you can from the wise and rework what you learn so that it takes on your personality. Confidence and consistency will win in the end.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Take what you want and keep moving. It’s slowing down that will give someone the chance to derail your plans or ideas. Love is in the stars so don’t waste time if someone special wants your undivided attention.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Ask someone you feel comfortable with about a problem you are having at work or with your finances. An honest answer may not be what you want to hear but it will help you get back on the road to recovery.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Tread carefully. Not everything will be as it appears. An older or younger person in your life who has a tough situation to deal with will trigger an emotional change. Your support will make a difference.

Birthday Baby: You are caring and interested in everyone and everything you encounter. You are giving, friendly and changeable and will always strive to do the unexpected.
