Happy Birthday: Size up your situation and make choices that will help you get things done. Focus on the end result, but don’t lose sight of the guidelines offered. Cutting corners may seem wise at the time but in the end will be costly. Use your head and control impulsive behavior. Love is highlighted, but so is excess and possessiveness. Proceed with caution.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Snap decisions, taking on too much and overreacting will all lead to regrets. Slow down, consider what’s at stake and think matters through mentally, not emotionally. Resist anyone trying to push or take advantage of you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep your private matters a secret. Focus on home, family and securing your position personally and professionally. Pick up skills, information or anything that will ensure future prospects. Keeping up with the fast-paced world we live in is essential.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Discriminate when it comes to helping others. Don’t let anyone play on your emotions or blackmail you into doing something questionable. You can offer suggestions, but do so for your benefit, not others. Love is on the rise.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Strive for perfection, quality and uniqueness in all that you do. You will secure your position if you are reliable, entertaining and competitive. Don’t let anger get the better of you. It’s best to sidestep a no-win situation rather than waste time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep moving and improving. You’ll pick up valuable information watching the way others operate. Don’t hesitate to update your skills, appearance or interests. Getting involved in a project will lead to new friendships. Love is on the rise.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep a close watch on your financial, legal or health matters. The information you receive may be misleading. Take a conservative approach and protect what you already have. Now is not the time to take a risk, even if it looks tempting.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t count on anyone. Follow through with your promises, and keep on moving. Idle time will bring you down and lead to trouble. Use your head, your experience and your quick wit to stay ahead of any competition you face. Avoid the past.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Explore new possibilities. Visiting unfamiliar places or people will open up all sorts of possibilities you hadn’t considered in the past. Express your interest, but don’t make a commitment or down payment that will bind you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your keen sense of timing and your abundance of energy will help you make choices and get things done. A personal update to your looks, lifestyle or love life will boost your ego and stimulate your imagination.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stick close to home and avoid any feud with friends, relatives and neighbors. Stick to your plans and focus on taking care of your domestic chores and personal pampering. You deserve a break and should hide out where it’s safe and sound.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Communicate with old friends. Remembering the past will help you move forward. A change in the way you think and the goals you set can be quickly implemented into your routine. Positive, progressive action will lead to a better future.
