Happy Birthday: Don’t let impulsive behavior get the best of you this year. A steady pace and a well-thought-out strategy will be your answer to avoiding setbacks. You don’t have to be conventional, but you do have to be open-minded and willing to use unorthodox methods to reach your goals. Discipline and the willingness to take action when ready will pay off. Your numbers are 4, 12, 21, 25, 32, 40, 46.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do what needs to be done and don’t make a fuss. Try not to be agitated by what others do or say. Socialize and have fun during the later part of the day and interesting conversations will result in positive plans. 4 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Avoid an emotional disagreement. Listen carefully and make kind and understanding gestures. It will be easier to get to the bottom of a situation if you don’t make a fuss and you offer sound advice instead of criticism or complaints. 2 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Open up about the way you feel and show the people you care about how much they mean to you. Be willing to offer others help if needed. A change to the way or where you live will encourage a brighter future and greater stability. 5 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotions will swell if you make assumptions. Give others the benefit of the doubt until you get the facts and can make an honest assessment of the situation. A peaceful, simple solution will far exceed an impulsive battle. 3 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Emotional issues will arise out of nowhere. Remain calm and be reluctant to make a change or a move until you have proof that one is required. A steady, moderate and simplistic approach to making progress will help you avoid mistakes. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Question everyone and everything before you make a change that will affect your finances or your ability to get ahead. Helping others is charitable, but before you do so, make sure you aren’t being taken for granted. 5 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Too much of anything will cause a backlash. Don’t let what others do tempt you. An even, well-balanced approach to life will help you avoid situations that have the potential to explode. Avoid excessive or inconsistent behavior. 2 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Easy does it when dealing with outside influences. Not everyone will be as stable as you or as able to control his or her temper. Keep the peace and you will gain respect as well as unexpected rewards. 4 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotional incidents will come at a high cost. Tone down any disappointment you feel due to someone else’s refusal to see things your way. Don’t make a fuss. Head in the direction of your choice and give others the same privilege. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be wary of the urge to be impulsive or the tendency to be around people who are unpredictable. Don’t take risks, spend unnecessarily or neglect to abide by the rules and regulations that you are expected to adhere to. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Plan to have some fun. Whether out with peers, family or your loved one, make the most of your time. The interaction and experience you have will prompt you to start a new project or to make changes that could be lucrative. 3 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Settle any differences you have with others. Be transparent when dealing with anyone who is in an authoritative position. Being honest will prevent you from looking bad or being used as a scapegoat. Get your facts straight. 3 stars

Birthday Baby: You are emotional, assertive and enthusiastic. You are pioneering and distinctive.
