Happy Birthday: If you try to get things out of the way too fast, you will miss an important detail. A job opportunity will allow you to put your creative skills to work.

Your numbers are 5, 13, 22, 27, 30, 33, 45.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Welcome the unexpected. You will be in your element, acting fast and taking care of every little thing that comes your way. The emotional turmoil created by someone close to you will be a telltale sign of what you should do next to make your personal life better.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone will interest you with a new hobby or activity. Tag along and you will discover you have lots in common. A potential to make a little money with this joint venture is apparent.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take the initiative and deal with any pressing matters immediately. If someone is not pulling his or her weight, you may want to intervene. Be determined and strong about what you want to see happen.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Speak up and let your feelings, thoughts and intentions be known. If you don’t say something now, it will be too late to make a difference later on. Let your emotions lead the way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t be shy when it’s so important to keep things out in the open. Talks will lead to change that you may not want but, once you get used to the alterations being made, you’ll realize how beneficial this new set of circumstances is for you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A little pampering or self- improvement will go a long way for you. Someone you care about can share your enjoyment or you should meet late in the day for good food and conversation. Enjoy the moment.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Rid of yourself of any laziness. Procrastination will make you look bad and cause criticism. Open up to new trends and incorporate your old ideas with a different twist.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Observing the people around you will be eye-opening. You will discover something that helps you identify what you want to do in the future. You will be invigorated by what you contribute and the response you get from others.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotional matters will escalate if you try to run away or avoid a personal problem. Face the music and put what is bothering you in the past. Put your effort into work, not play, if you don’t want to be pressured. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Take care of business. The demands being put on you emotionally will pose a greater problem the longer you wait. Moneymaking opportunities are looking good but check the deal out personally, rather than trusting someone else. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t make waves, start fights or antagonize someone who can influence your future. Your foggy outlook will cause you to misjudge a situation, leaving you in a vulnerable position. Assess things realistically and respond in a practical manner.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Initiate entertaining events or activities with friends or someone you love. A commitment made today may be based on a changing situation. Before you make a promise, consider the outcome from several different angles.

Birthday Baby: You have a strong sense of who you are and what you can do. You are sensitive, charming, thoughtful and sincere.
