Happy Birthday: Think before you follow through. Emotions will be difficult to control if you aren’t pragmatic about how you handle personal situations. Don’t feel you have to take care of everyone else’s responsibilities for them. Stay focused on doing what’s best for you. Problems with partners will surface. The trick will be to know when to compromise and when to walk away. Your numbers are 9, 14, 20, 28, 37, 42, 48.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Making assumptions could lead to poor choices. Observe what everyone else is doing. Time is on your side, and gathering information will be in your best interest. Keep your life simple and concentrate on self-improvement, not trying to change others. 2 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Keep an open mind, but don’t agree just because someone is enthusiastic or persuasive when presenting you with an offer. Be on guard at all times and protect your assets, possessions and your financial future. Emotional spending will lead to loss. 3 stars
