Happy Birthday: Take a moment to reflect and to consider what’s happened and how you can come to terms with situations that are still bothering you. Move forward with trepidation, trusting in yourself and what your heart tells you. Truth will help you make better choices, and distancing yourself from those who have done you wrong will help you build a better future. Your numbers are 9, 11, 22, 26, 34, 39, 48.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take care of pressing matters the first time so you aren’t stuck cleaning up when you’d rather be out having fun with friends. A last-minute change someone makes will leave you wondering if you should make one as well. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A decision you make will help stabilize your life and get you moving down a positive path. Making a commitment or coming up with a plan to ensure you begin the upcoming year on the right foot should be a priority. 4 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stay focused on what’s important. If you ask for too much, you may only receive the things that won’t have an impact on your life moving forward. Have a plan in place and a goal in mind. Moderation will be required. 2 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take a unique approach to how you celebrate. A meaningful gift will far exceed a fancy token or lavish offering. A physical change will be embraced with compliments and greater confidence. A little romance will highlight your day. 5 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A chance to do something different will prompt you to check out new opportunities in your community. Plan an eventful evening with friends or your lover, but avoid indulgence. A change at home should not go over budget. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The less time spent at home, the better. Don’t become entangled in someone’s bad mood or poor behavior. If you do something questionable, own up to it. It’s best to clear the air so you can move forward without feeling guilty. 3 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Consider what you’d like to do next and start researching your options. Signing up for a course that will help you raise your earning potential or ease your stress will give you something to look forward to. Focus on personal change. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sign up for something that looks interesting. The people you meet will inspire you to get back to basics and explore your creative urges. A social event will make you realize how you feel about someone close to you. 5 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Question anyone and anything that appears to be suspicious. Offer help you know will make a difference, but don’t focus your efforts on those trying to take advantage of your kindness and good nature. Make a positive change to the way you live. 2 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll be weighing choices and considering what you want to do next. Be realistic and don’t make decisions or moves until you have everything in place. A premature change will leave you scrambling. Keep life simple. 4 stars
