Happy Birthday: Mix things up a bit. Stop doing what hasn't worked for you in the past and take a vested interest in developing a skill you enjoy using. What you do to invest in your future will bring you to a much better place personally and professionally. A change is required that incorporates your happiness and your attributes. Your numbers are 7, 12, 22, 25, 34, 37, 43.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't let impulsiveness get you into trouble. Think before you act, or you may find out you have jeopardized a relationship with someone who can influence your position. Make personal, financial and emotional changes that will raise your living standard. 4 stars
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be careful what you share with others. Keep your personal thoughts a secret and fixate more on what others are doing and thinking. Power will come to the person most aware of everyone else's position. Take charge -- it's time to be a leader. 2 stars
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Search the job market, even if you aren't looking to make a change. An interesting prospect will give you an idea for a way to make extra cash. A partnership opportunity can make a difference regarding personal and professional success. 5 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Problems on the home front will escalate if you aren't diplomatic. Steer clear of any form of indulgence, or you may end up in a precarious position or have to apologize. Get out and shop or do something that calms your nerves. 3 stars
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The more you move about, travel and communicate, the better off you will be. Idle time is the enemy, and negative encounters with someone trying to control you will not lead to a resolution. Concentrate on your best interests and the ones you love. 5 stars
