CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Amanda Peet, 39; Mary J. Blige, 40; Kim Coles, 49; Naomi Judd, 65.

Happy Birthday: You don’t have to push when all that’s required is a little charm and diplomacy. Keep the peace and you will get your way in the end. This is not the year to make demands but instead to be happy that you are capable of handling whatever comes your way. Being humble will give you far greater appeal and bring better results. 

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Broaden your vision and it will be easier to see past the obstacles that stand between you and what you want. Figure out your costs before you make a decision regarding a high-ticket purchase. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taking on too many obligations or trying to please too many people will not allow you to do what needs to be done. You will come up against roadblocks but, if you have done your research, you’ll find alternatives. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look before you leap, especially when money is involved. Protect what you have but don’t be afraid to buy into a sure thing. You can improve your relationships if you enhance your knowledge and meet people from different walks of life. 

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can advance as long as you are consistent. Being calm and surefooted in your approach to whatever you do will put you in the spotlight and bring you responsibilities that will buy you the freedom you need to excel. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your bold approach to life, love and happiness will be inspiring to others. Make personal changes or connect with a person or group that can help you reach your goals. You have everything to gain by taking action and sharing your views. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a stab at something you’ve never done before. You will find it stimulating and ego-boosting. Your abilities will not go unnoticed and an offer or proposal is likely to fit into some underlying plans. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll have to divide your time and attention carefully. Someone in your personal life will challenge you and you will meet with competition in your professional life. Don’t let a burden that doesn’t belong to you cause you to miss an opportunity. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take on a challenge and you will find your niche. Your skills are far greater than you give yourself credit for and, if you implement them into what you offer others professionally, you will advance. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Move ahead with caution. Take care of small but important details. There is much to be grateful for and to accomplish if you work diligently to make your world a better place for you and your loved ones. Focus on home and family. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Emotions will stand in the way of good judgment. Ask a trusted friend to help you if you don’t feel you can make a suitable choice. Problems with authority or while traveling can be expected. Don’t take a chance; rely on experience. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Love is in the stars and with a couple of suggestions you will find that you have more in common with someone you care for than you realized. Working as a couple will help you achieve a stable lifestyle and a secure future. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick to your word. If you start to change your mind, you will add to the confusion and cause others to see you as unstable. Consistency will count. Overdoing it will lead to loss. 

Birthday Baby: You are emotionally impatient and earnest in your pursuits. You are bright, articulate and do everything with intensity and passion.
