CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Nick Cannon, 30; Matt Damon, 40; Sigourney Weaver, 61; Chevy Chase, 67
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY: Don't fear competition. Instead, incorporate your own unique twist to whatever you do. You are in control if you do what's required of you to take charge and do the groundwork. Position yourself strategically where you will get the most coverage.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may feel split about what you should be doing and what you want to do. You can push someone to contribute to your end goal, allowing you to enjoy both accomplishment and celebration. Love relationships can bring changes in the way you live.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There is plenty to gain by observing what others do, say and propose. Consider ways to make someone you care for feel special. Don't be afraid to show your emotions; the response you get will make you feel secure about your current situation and your future.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Give more time to the young and the old in your life. Use your creativity to dazzle those you encounter with smashing ideas and brilliant plans to turn something you do well into a profitable endeavor. Serious talks will bring long-lasting results.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You'll feel torn between two options and two groups of people. Your heart will lead you in one direction and your responsibilities in another. Share your dilemma with someone you respect and you will come up with a workable plan.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Now is a great time to interact with friends, neighbors and relatives who have just as much to offer as you. A pleasure trip will spark some ideas. Serious talks will bring results but expect someone to question and push you a little in the process.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don't let someone from your past or an old memory stop you from making progressive moves. You cannot stay put because of someone else's needs or jealousy. A change at home may be necessary for your own emotional well-being.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Shake off the negativity. There is always a balance in life; look beyond what isn't working for you and you will discover what's available. Not everything has to run according to your plans.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can delegate work but keep a tight watch over what everyone around you is doing. An unexpected opportunity may conflict with something already taking place. Negotiate wisely. Don't pass up a good deal.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't let personal relationships cause you to miss an opportunity. Unexpected changes at home will be to your advantage in the end, even if at the moment you feel a little lost or left out.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put everything you've got into work and you will make headway. Too much thought and interaction with people who don't think the same way as you will interfere in your productivity and progress. It's about accomplishment, not what everyone else thinks or does.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put your emotions aside and focus on the real issues. You cannot give someone the benefit of a doubt, especially if it could cost you emotionally, personally or financially. Arguments will develop if there is jealousy.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You have the potential to negotiate deals, resolve settlements or to make a long-lasting and meaningful commitment. There is good fortune heading your way, making this an ideal time to invest in something solid, like property or one of your talents.
