HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Adaptability will be key if you want to get things done. Listen carefully. Don't allow emotions to sidetrack you or cause you to make poor choices. Offering too much for too little return will be your downfall. Equalizing the playing field will be necessary if you are to maintain balance and integrity while fulfilling your responsibilities. Your numbers are 2, 10, 14, 27, 35, 38, 46.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Slow down -- you cannot be everywhere at once. Accidents and minor mishaps will happen if you are pressed for time. Ask for help if you need it and set aside some time for entertainment, love and romance. Make travel plans. 3 stars
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put a last-minute push on the things you want to take care of before the year comes to a close. Added pressure will make a difference if someone has been falling behind. Someone you deal with will try to take advantage of you. 4 stars
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Emotional mind games are apparent. Don't give in to someone asking for too much or questioning what you are doing. Focus on what you know you can accomplish and what will bring the highest returns. Trust issues will prevail. 2 stars
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look at the responsibilities you've taken on and you'll find a unique solution that will help you handle whatever you face. Less dependence on others will bring you greater freedom to come and go as you please. Don't feel obliged to pay for others. 5 stars
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Step out and interact with people you find interesting. Networking or attending an industry event will help you enhance your reputation as well as your confidence. Spending time with people from different backgrounds will be enlightening. 3 stars
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your personal life will be under emotional pressure and you may need to get out of the house in order to avoid turmoil. A good friend will help you get past any dilemma you are facing at home or with a partner. 3 stars
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Share your thoughts, but don't show your emotions. Problems with peers can be resolved if you are patient and practical in the way you handle situations as they arise. Take this opportunity to stand out for your leadership and diplomacy. 3 stars
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take on additional jobs and find unusual ways to please the people you love. You'll have an opportunity to invest in something that can bring you greater stability. Develop an idea you have wanted to put into play for some time. 5 stars
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll be undecided about friends, lovers and where and what you want to do next. Don't rely on your intuition or your emotions to lead you in the right direction. You are best to take a wait-and-see approach before making a move. 2 stars
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stick to the truth and keep it short, sweet and simple. The less involved you get in what other people are doing, the easier it will be to take over. Keep your guard up even if those around you divulge personal information. 4 stars
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Get whatever needs to be done out of the way so you can relax. Decorating your home or moving things around to better suit your needs will improve your outlook and give you some nifty ideas you can pursue in the upcoming year. 3 stars
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don't overreact. You have to take one step at a time in order to make progress. A lover or someone you've trusted in the past is likely to disappoint you. Loyalty may be questioned. Don't hide facts. Moderation will be required. 3 stars
