CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Apolo Anton Ohno, 28; Ginnifer Goodwin, 32; Naomi Campbell, 40; Morrissey, 51.

Happy Birthday: Aggressive action may be required regarding financial matters. If you focus on the gains to be made without jeopardizing what you already have, this will be a winning year. Don’t let your emotions take over or cause you to bail out someone who doesn’t deserve your help. This year, it’s every man for himself and that includes you. 

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do your research. Diplomacy will help you do what needs to be done without disrupting your relationships. A change in your personal life is probably overdue. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can make a difference in your community and to your friends and neighbors if you resolve issues and fight for the rights of the people you care about. Love is in the stars. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t fold under pressure. Instead, do what’s expected of you and you will avoid criticism or complaints. A change of plans will cause some emotional upset but, as long as you are willing to carry on alone, you will not suffer a loss and will probably get more out of the experience you have. 

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will get far more done at home if you enlist the help of family or friends. A change is heading your way and should enhance your relationships as well as your surroundings. You can improve your associations if you discuss problems. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Impulsive acts will cause problems from an oversight on your part. Make your plans carefully. Delays and frustrations will result while traveling or when dealing with people trying to add to your responsibilities. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Shake things up a bit by visiting places that will take your mind off pressing matters. Distance yourself from stressful situations in order to get a different perspective. Emotional and financial issues can be expected but avoid impulsive action. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take the initiative to do what needs to be done without asking for help. Property purchases, changing your residence or even moving your furniture around will help you feel better about your surroundings and your future. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If you need something, call in a favor. You can accomplish a lot if you are upfront and ask for what you need to achieve success. Forcefulness and persistence will pay off. Strive to be your best. Love is on the rise. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Face problems head on and be upfront and honest. Now is not the time to make up excuses when a simple apology or kind gesture is what’s required. Put the negative behind you and start anew. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Getting together with friends or taking part in an event or activity that tests your skills will bring out the best in you. Have a heart to heart talk with someone you care for. A change at home will bring great results and help you to ease your stress. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may face scrutiny if you haven’t been honest with someone who has always had your back. Clear the air so you can lessen the tension and start moving down the right track. Your charm will attract lovers. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can work well with others as long as you are straight about who is doing what. Lots can be accomplished and a greater understanding between you and a partner will bring positive changes. An added responsibility will be a blessing. 

Birthday Baby: You are practical, patient and prudent. You are determined, reluctant to back down and ready to take on whatever comes your way.
