Happy Birthday: Heartfelt dialogue and honest communication will be what count this year. Being objective and looking for solutions that don’t have hidden downsides will help you reach your goals much faster. You can accomplish and make the changes you desire as long as your approach is a sincere one. Don’t hide behind your fear — speak up and follow through.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Not everyone will agree with you, but that is no reason not to voice your opinion. Once you have all the facts, you will be able to make sense of a personal or financial situation that is bothering you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Make a point to get involved and participate in events that can affect your community. Don’t be afraid to speak up and offer original solutions. Express your concerns and expand your ideas to reach a wider audience. Make an impression.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It won’t be easy to think clearly or be realistic when dealing with situations that require cooperation and interaction with others. Emotional blackmail is likely to cloud a decision. Stick to the truth and ask for the same in return.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have more going for you than you realize. Set your goals high and focus on what you know and do best. Your success will far outweigh any problems caused by someone choosing to go in a different direction.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Money, contracts and medical issues are likely to surface. Try not to get caught up in what others do or say. False information abounds. Research will reveal that you are better off making a decision based on your own intuition.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Relationships will confuse you. Getting out and interacting with people who can shed light on your situation will help keep you grounded. Emotions could be misleading. Rethink your strategy and plot your next move.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Look for unique ways to change your life. Making new friends or getting involved in a hobby or venture will help you rejuvenate. A special relationship will grow if you are attentive. You’ll find a great bargain if you go shopping.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): An unusual interest will help you expand your knowledge and your friendships. Use your creative imagination and you will find solutions to the problems that require your attention. Change isn’t always the right choice. Let your intuition guide you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Nothing will be as it appears. Double-check any information you receive before getting involved in a joint venture. Keep your money tucked away in a safe place and focus on your home and comfort and making positive changes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Moderation and practical applications should be your strategy if you want to come out ahead. Not everyone will agree with your conservative approach, but you have to do what makes you feel comfortable. Don’t give in just to avoid an argument.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Changing the way you do a job will turn out well if you follow through. Don’t procrastinate when it comes to contracts, negotiations or financial matters. Do the best you can and explore any opportunity that may lead to improvement.
