CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Venus Williams, 37; Will Forte, 47; Greg Kinnear, 54; Barry Manilow, 74.

Happy Birthday: You’ll face personal and professional decisions this year that will make you question your past, present and your future. Don’t be too quick to make a judgment call that may leave you in an awkward position. Take care of matters personally and follow through with precision until you are sure there is no room for error or failure. Your numbers are 2, 5, 18, 24, 38, 40, 42.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Talk is cheap when it’s riddled with unrealistic dreams. Listen, but don’t take part in something that may compromise your position, direction or your course of action. Be blunt, objective and prudent if you want to avoid missteps. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be careful how much information you share with acquaintances. Be a good listener and gather information instead of sharing your opinion. It’s in your best interest to be helpful as well as observant. 4 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Listen carefully and decipher exactly what others are saying. Mixed signals will be sent your way and must be carefully considered before you make a decision that may influence your reputation. Leave nothing to chance. 2 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Say little when it comes to emotional situations. It’s what you do that will make the difference to the outcome. If you want to improve matters, be willing to compromise. A partnership will strengthen if you build trust and aim for equality. 5 stars


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep an open mind and observe what’s said and done, but don’t feel obligated to take on someone else’s problems. A younger person in your life may give you insight through an innocent remark. Listen and learn. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t mix business with pleasure. Someone will take advantage of you emotionally if you don’t speak up and make a counteroffer. Fair is fair, and it’s up to you to negotiate until you get the deal you want. 3 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Use your energy wisely. You’ll get ahead if you spend time perfecting a project, your resume or a contract you are considering. Once complete, you will feel like celebrating with the people who make your life worthwhile. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): An emotional problem with children or seniors can be difficult at first. Do your research and make the best choices possible for those who cannot do so alone. Your help will be appreciated in the end. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A neighbor or someone you live with will not favor the home improvements or personal alterations you want to make. Get the go-ahead before you start anything that will have an effect on others and you will avoid delays. 5 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Time spent at home preparing an event you plan to host will encourage changes that will make your surroundings more comfortable. Put love and romance at the top of your list. Choose passion over emotional mayhem. 2 stars


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take care of domestic chores quickly and move on to more enjoyable activities. Doing things with someone who prompts you to make positive personal changes or to try something new will brighten your day. 4 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep your thoughts to yourself and your attention on a project that will improve the way you live. A little romance will help to keep an important relationship moving forward without conflict. Don’t neglect the ones you love. 3 stars

Birthday Baby: You are colorful, dreamy and unique. You are indecisive and ambiguous.
