TODAY’S BIRTHDAY: This is your year to excel financially, personally and emotionally. You will be able to think big, yet do things on a shoestring — getting the most bang for your buck. Ingenuity and common sense, mixed with originality and desire, will help you attract the help and attention required to be successful.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep your thoughts a secret, especially if they have to do with financial moves. You have been helping too many for too long, and it’s time to help yourself for a change. Don’t give in to what someone else is pushing on you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Emotional matters will surface, giving you plenty to think about. You are better off not making a move until you feel things have settled down around you. Avoid excess of any kind.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Work hard and don’t give in to temptation. You may have to ward off a few people who are trying to get you to take on responsibilities that don’t belong to you. Choose your projects with care.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can make some fancy moves, alterations and decisions that will help you shape your future in a positive manner. You will start to see everything fall into place. This is your time to get ahead personally, financially and professionally.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may feel as if everyone is against you or that things aren’t going your way. Don’t overreact, overdo or overindulge. It will not help you balance your life or build your future.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may have a hard time figuring out how to deal with all your relationships. Give some thought to what you have to offer that doesn’t cost financially but can be effective in more important ways. Offer services or your time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Have fun with friends. Something very puzzling about your direction may make you question if you are on the right path.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t let your personal feelings interfere with work. There is no time to waste, and getting all worked up over something you can do nothing about will not help matters.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be misinterpreted or given false information if you aren’t specific about your needs. Someone in a position to stand in your way will make an effort to do so. Know your boundaries.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You are the one in control, so make your moves and state what it is you expect or want from others. You set the goals and the budget. You will gain respect, achieve what you want and impress someone who has something to offer in return.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let the little things people say get to you. You can find love or enhance a relationship you are already in if you are open about the way you feel.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Let the past go and stop worrying so much about what others think. Strive to master your skills, and offer your services with pride. Be strong: It’s a new day and you can have it all if you put your mind to it.
