Happy Birthday: This is a great year to look at your options and find the best course of action. Professional gains are possible if you take the necessary actions. Added discipline and a broader outlook will contribute to your success and lead you to a challenge that can turn into something spectacular.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Shake off anyone’s attempt to make you feel bad. An emotional response will only give the person you are at odds with the upper hand. If you are professional and do your job to the best of your ability, you will get ahead.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Think big, follow your heart and don’t be afraid of what others may think or say. In the end, you will win the support you need and enhance your reputation. Don’t be distracted by someone’s jealousy.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t be too sure of yourself. A problem with love, money and a job you are working on will make it difficult to meet your deadline. You’ll be moving fast but, in doing so, you will make unnecessary mistakes. Empty promises are apparent.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let emotional troubles hinder your personal judgment or your professional goals. You are likely to take things the wrong way or give the wrong impression. Once you make a transition, everything will get back to normal.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put any troubles you face behind you and get out with friends. You can’t change what’s going on at home, so avoid getting into deep discussions that will only make matters worse. Solutions can be found if you distance yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make alterations to your personal life and your living arrangements. A residential move will give you a new lease on life and help you to revive some of your old ideas. A long-time partnership will benefit from changes you make.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Nothing will be easy to resolve, especially if you are having difficulty getting along with others. Promises you may not have fulfilled will come back to haunt you. Changing your vocation will not rid you of the problem you are facing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Give more time to the people and things you enjoy most. You deserve a break and the opportunity to fulfill your dreams. A creative idea you have will be shared with someone who can turn it into a masterpiece.
