Happy Birthday: Look out for your interests and avoid anyone giving you a hard time or pressuring you into something. A change of attitude, friends or even location can lead to greater stability. Upfront and onward should be your motto. Keep things honest and follow your own path.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take care of any concerns you have that can affect your employment. Don’t let anyone bully you or pressure you to do something you don’t agree with. Rely on experience to help you make the right financial decision now.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll face criticism if you left something unfinished. Put in extra effort and time if it will help sway someone to think your way. Learn from experience and you will avoid making the same mistakes over again. Distance yourself from an old partner.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Think before you take action. Stick to your budget and alter your plans to fit what you can afford. A problem with a lover or child will crop up if you haven’t been honest about your intentions or the way you feel.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Stick close to home and avoid any interaction with institutions, government agencies or authority figures that may give you a difficult time. Concentrate on your personal or professional relationships and you will improve them.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your contribution will lead to a serious proposal from someone you impress. Don’t jump to conclusions; the deal you are offered will improve your reputation more than your bankbook. Proceed with confidence and you will be one step closer to your goal.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Anger will work against you. Remain calm and offer sensible solutions and you will eventually win support. Changes made to your home or your status will be questionable if ulterior motives are present. Strive for self-improvement.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The facts you need to make a decision will not be readily handed over. Observe what others are doing. Rely on your intuition and intelligence to help you make the right choice. Don’t worry if someone disagrees with your decision.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Offer your help, expertise or knowledge, but don’t let anyone take advantage of you financially. Keep your money in your wallet, regardless of the pressure put on you to donate. Success can be yours, but financial rewards will take a little longer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The more you say, the more trouble you will get yourself into. You are best to hear and consider what’s being asked of you before you make a decision that can alter your lifestyle or personal status. Honesty will be required.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may be prompted to make a snap decision. Back away from anyone putting pressure on you. Follow your gut, not what someone else wants you to do. Expect to face opposition and be prepared to state your case and your final decision.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A change at home may take you by surprise, but in the end it will be in your best interest. Discuss the possibility of doing things differently. Prepare to move on and experience new people, places and things.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Problems with a friend, relative or neighbor will mount if you have neglected to do something you promised. Size up your situation and decide if you should back away from someone who has been creating too much trouble for you.

Birthday Baby: You think, you see and you do. You are a passionate participant.
