CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Lily Allen, 25; David Beckham, 35; Dwayne Johnson, 38; Christine Baranski, 58.

Happy Birthday: You can make headway this year if you put your time, effort and know-how into contracts, deals and investment opportunities. This can be a lucrative year if you take a different approach to an old goal or reunite with someone from your past. Your intuition will not lead you astray but someone who doesn’t have your best interests at heart may.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t isolate yourself because you are so intent on being first. Spending more time on looking your best and flirting and socializing will be a much better way to spend your day and improve your life.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Experience is the spice of life and, right now, you need something inspirational to happen. Different cultures, lifestyles and traditions will help you revisit your own beliefs and decide what and whom you want to keep in your life.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t be afraid to make some financial changes. You will have insight and can make a decision that brings you profits in the future. A property investment will bring you a sense of security and stability.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Prepare your work for the upcoming week — it can make all the difference. An interesting proposal can be yours if you are willing to diversify. Adapting to change will put you in the lead.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t take a chance or say something that might offend another. Watch and observe instead of being the center of attention. A friendship with someone who needs your help will be uplifting and will help spin you in a practical direction.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A new friendship will develop from an activity or event that brings you in touch with like-minded people. Enlightening talks will make you question what you want to do with the rest of your life.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): An acquaintance will realize your potential. Present your ideas, along with a budget, and you will entice someone to take part in your plans. Don’t allow someone who is close to you to stand in your way.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Networking with people striving to reach similar goals will reveal valuable information, helping you jumpstart your plans. Invest in your talent. You have lots to offer and often sell yourself short.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make your move but not at the expense of a friendship or partnership. Change is required if you want to make things better. Be aboveboard and honest about your intentions. A concern about your financial situation will be raised.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Emotional matters must be dealt with immediately. Deception about someone from your past will lead you in the wrong direction. Find out firsthand before you make a decision that will be difficult to reverse.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t get involved in something you don’t want to participate in because someone else wants you to. You can make extra money if you offer a service you feel comfortable doing. Avoid taking part in a joint financial venture — it will lead to a tight and uncompromising spot.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t take too long to dwell over the ins and outs of something that needs to be done. Give whatever is required of you. Your sincerity and compassionate nature will help you help others. The potential to meet someone important to you through an organization you join is likely.

Birthday Baby: You are willing to work hard for what you receive. You fear little and possess enough confidence to see any matter through to the end.
