Happy birthday. Projects and assignments pour in, and you’ll turn it into cash in December. February shows you adding to your family and changing your schedule to accommodate the new addition. January features a commitment, contract or lasting bond.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Vague hopes without a plan will stress you out. Get specific. Your optimism will return when you make a few small, achievable and measurable goals.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The best talkers don’t always have the best ideas.That’s why you can’t always trust the most charismatic person in the room, even though everyone else is listening to him.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You may feel that you have to prove yourself in a crowd of strangers. But the key to winning them over is in dropping that feeling and join your own side. What’s in it for you?
CANCER (June 22-July 22): The others are not trying to get in the way of your work, and yet their presence may be keeping you from concentrating. Make a getaway.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):You like to try things before you make a judgment. Someone will foot the bill for you so you don’t have to assume the risk.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Which achievements give you the most pleasure: the tangible ones that come with certificates, money and material evidence, or the intangible ones that happen in a person’s heart? You’ll enjoy a taste of both today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You are once again caught between two options and trying to make a decision.Your light heart refuses to be weighed down by indecision.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Social skills are important, but they are not the only important skills. Quietly tuning in to your own private muse is also a skill.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be entering into new relationships. This is the time to be mindful of pacing. It’s also the moment to really make sure another person has interests that complement your own.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you initiate a new deal now, you’ll likely be held up while too many people deliberate on the terms. Consider going paperless for a while. A lot can be said for an old-fashioned handshake arrangement.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s as though you dive into a pool of intense, focused energy and go for a nice long swim. When you emerge, instead of being exhausted from the exercise, you’ll feel cleansed.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The machinery of your life is humming along unimpeded. This is a fi ne opportunity to stockpile the product of your efforts. Save something for a rainy day.
