CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: LeAnn Rimes, 28; Carly Pope, 30; Jason Priestley, 41; Shania Twain, 45.

Happy Birthday: You are on a rollercoaster ride that can lead to greatness or throw you off-guard. Every move you make will be crucial to the outcome. It is necessary to be in control at all times and to make decisions based on facts and figures to get you where you want to go. This cannot be a year of chance. 

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Problems with the way things are presented to you will arise in both your personal and professional dealings. You can advance but only if you cover all the material that is expected of you. Research and preparation will pay off. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Plan to have fun. Dwelling on what you didn’t get done will not help matters. You need to look forward, not back. You will learn something valuable from someone you encounter through a friend. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look for alternative ways to entertain someone you love. Your spontaneity will capture attention and impress someone who can offer you favors. You’ll be emotional, so stay busy. 

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Refrain from reacting to something too quickly — it may not be easily reversed. Not everyone will have your best interests at heart, especially when it pertains to love, children or an older family member. Don’t let anyone push you around. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Listen to what others are telling you and you can make a wise decision. Friends, neighbors and relatives will play an important role in your life. Include the people you love in your plans. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let someone from your past cost you. Try to collect or pay old debts so you can start with a clean slate. Don’t get angry over an emotional matter that cannot be altered. Walk away from any situation not likely to be good for you. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll have mixed emotions regarding a personal relationship. Try not to be too hard on the person you are dealing with, but don’t act as a doormat either. It’s important that you keep the peace until you decide what’s best for you. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take a good idea you have and work it until it amounts to something. A change will do you good, so don’t hesitate to make a move or relocate for the weekend. An opportunity you come across will help you make a decision. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Count your blessings and work long and hard to complete what needs to be done. You have plenty to gain by putting in extra time. Your own small business will show some potential and that will encourage you to diversify what you have to offer. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t push your luck when dealing with others. Travel will be riddled with delays, detours and frustration. It’s best to stay put. There is money heading your way. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Spend time with an old friend. Looking back and sharing memories will remind you of ideas and goals you can still put into play. With a little streamlining and updating, you could turn something you once enjoyed doing into a lucrative endeavor. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It’s best to listen to the arguments being made to help you get a better view of what’s going on. You can avoid a terrible mistake when it comes to both personal and professional partnerships. Don’t lead someone on. 

Birthday Baby: You are emotional, passionate and strong-willed. You don’t like change and you strive to keep the peace. You are bound by tradition.
