Happy Birthday: Plunge forward, and embrace the people and the events and activities that bring you the most joy.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Consider every angle of a situation before you get involved. Emotions will be difficult to control, and if left to fester, will result in taking action when it’s in your best interest to simply observe. Avoid physical and emotional stress. 2 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Show what you can do rather than talk about your plans. If you are in active pursuit of your goal, you will reach your destination and receive the praise you deserve for your accomplishment. Positive change is doable. Romance is highlighted. 5 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let someone manipulative take advantage of you. Know the difference between friendliness and meddling. If someone shows too much interest, listen more and say less. Don’t reveal personal information about yourself or someone close to you. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): It’s OK to do things differently. You’ll come up with great alternatives if you rely on experience to avoid making the same mistake. Share with someone you love and trust, and you’ll find your way. 3 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take a look at the offers that come your way, but don’t buy into something without investigating what’s entailed. Protect your assets from anyone who is being nosy or manipulative. An impromptu decision will lead to a loss. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Spread out, investigate and determine what’s best for you. Too many options can be a bit confusing, but sticking to what’s practical will bring you peace of mind. Personal growth will lead to a positive lifestyle change. 5 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do something good for your health. Exercise, physical labor or living a moderate lifestyle will encourage fitness and well-being. Don’t trust fad diets or products that are expensive and promise the impossible. Listen to your heart, not hearsay. 2 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Follow the path that makes you feel most exhilarated and alive to discover where it takes you. You are overdue for a change that will stimulate you to start something new. Travel, learning and emotional and spiritual growth are favored. 4 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be taken advantage of if you appear to be gullible. Listen to an offer, but don’t commit to anything without considering the risk factor. Play it safe when it comes to investments and joint endeavors. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Set priorities, and live up to your expectations. A change at home will lift your spirits, but if someone you live with or near isn’t happy with your plan, alter what you are doing to avoid a dispute. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Only make or agree to a necessary change. If someone wants to head in a different direction, don’t make a fuss. A deal that includes others may not be as good as you are led to believe. 3 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep your life simple, stay focused on what’s important to you and don’t overdo it physically, emotionally or financially. Socializing and romance don’t have to cost a fortune. Live within your means, and avoid adding stress to your life. 4 stars
