CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Carson Daly, 44; Cyndi Lauper, 64; Meryl Streep, 68; Todd Rundgren, 69.

Happy Birthday: Look at your life from a distance and size up what’s going well and what isn’t. You can make changes if you put your mind to it, so don’t wallow in negativity or a defeatist attitude before you even begin. If you are prudent, you can make alterations that are unique and will have an impact mentally, physically and financially. Your numbers are 2, 8, 17, 25, 28, 33, 41.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Observe, assess and think twice before you say something you may regret. You can bring about changes, but before doing so, make sure you have the approval of anyone who will be affected by the choices you make. 4 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your appeal will grow if you are willing to try new things and share your experiences with others. An honest look at your current situation will make it easier for you to come up with a solid solution. 3 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your emotions are likely to take you down a slippery slope if you let them interfere in the way you handle things. Pour your energy into something that will bring improvements to your lifestyle and your important relationships. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look at alternate routes when it comes to mini-vacations, educational pursuits and communicating with others. If you take a different approach, you will attract greater interest in what you are trying to do. Use your intelligence, not pressure. 3 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your open approach to helping others will make people gravitate toward you. Expand your own interests by helping people who have experience in an area that you want to find out more about. Your steady progress will lead to positive feedback. 4 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen carefully, but don’t react. Manipulation on your part or by someone you are dealing with will only make matters worse. Choose to be honest and expect the same in return. Have your facts ready before airing your differences. 5 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can offer to help someone, but not at the expense of neglecting your own responsibilities or by paying for someone else’s mistake. Stick to the truth and only do what you feel is honorable. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Consider what’s being said and where the information is coming from before you make a comment. Go about your business and take care of your responsibilities instead of getting involved in someone else’s affairs. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll be in the mood to have fun, but before you cut loose, consider what it will cost. Pick and choose your friends carefully. If someone is a poor influence, take a pass. A one-on-one romantic encounter is favored. 3 stars
