CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Drew Bledsoe, 40; Simon Pegg, 42; Enrico Colantoni, 49; Florence Henderson, 78.

Happy Birthday: Avoid situations that bring you down. Distance yourself from negative people. Be selective when choosing activities, groups or courses. Too much of anything or anyone will hold you back or cost you time or money. Open up to new ideas and be receptive to personal or business partnerships that ensure equality as well as beneficial experience.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Follow your dreams. Don’t let anyone interfere with your plans. Get whatever work you are responsible for out of the way and focus on your personal accomplishments. Success is within reach, but you do have to put in extra time and effort.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get involved in new hobbies, activities and interests. Share with others and get to know co-workers, peers or social network friends better. The more diverse you become, the more you will enjoy what life has to offer.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Honesty will be required, especially when dealing with an employer, colleague or interviewer. You have plenty to offer without exaggerating. Using your skills uniquely is your strong point and should be the angle you project.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Refrain from getting involved in an activity, challenge or event for the wrong reason. You have to be true to you. Follow your own path and discover and develop the skills that will help you get ahead personally or professionally.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Forget about an emotional conflict you have with someone so you can move forward. Don’t waste good opportunities sulking or fretting over something you cannot change. Your happiness and success is the best way to let go of the past.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Expand your knowledge and the network of people you share with and you will find a way to change your status and improve your financial position. A change to your residence will add to your comfort, as long as you don’t overspend impulsively.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Look at the facts. Don’t be fooled by what others say or do. Tally up the pros and cons and what works for you. Look at your options and base your decisions on your situation, not someone else’s plans.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Trust in what you do well and promote your talents to a wider range of companies, clients and people in general. A connection you made networking will come in handy now. Don’t be afraid to ask for favors.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Truth is important. Whether it’s you or the person you are dealing with, deception is apparent and will lead to loss of friendship, money or reputation. Precise communication and asking questions when in doubt will spare you unnecessary setbacks.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Think outside the box and you will come up with a surprising plan that will give you an advantage when dealing with friends and colleagues. Your insight will come from past experience. Stick to your principles and plans, even if others don’t.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Keep your emotions out of any decision you have to make. Your choice of people and the path you are considering will not be in your best interest. You can accomplish far more if you scale down and move forward on your own.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Rely on trustworthy people from your past. Information received from outsiders will be sketchy and costly. Concentrate on tried-and-true methods you feel comfortable pursuing. A financial partnership will turn sour. Protect your assets.

Birthday Baby: You are sensitive, responsive and intense. You strive for perfection and completion.
