Happy Birthday: A creative approach to how you do any job you are given will be your best bet. Once you differentiate between what other people offer and what you can supply, you will find it much easier to beat any competition you encounter. Share your knowledge and skills and you will develop a good working relationship with your peers. Your numbers are 4, 13, 20, 23, 31, 40, 48.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may have to appease someone you care about. Emotional matters will escalate if you aren't willing to back down or at least compromise. Helping a cause is fine but not if it affects a close relationship. Pick and choose your battles wisely. 2 stars
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Communicate and you will get your point across. Love is on the rise and making future plans will bring you closer together. Someone is likely to call your bluff or ask for a commitment. Your timing must be impeccable. 4 stars
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Someone will offer you poor advice or information. Do your own research before you make a decision that will alter your reputation. Keep life simple, honor your commitments and you will find workable solutions for any troublesome encounter you face. 3 stars
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Determination will get you where you want to go, but don't be foolish and overspend to make an impression. Only offer what you can afford. Giving in to demands will set you back and cause a problem with someone you love. 3 stars
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A business trip or meeting will pay off as long as you are consistent and stay within your means. A partnership can help you meet the demands being put on you, but only if you are both willing to share responsibilities equally. 3 stars
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Give others a chance to express what they would like to see happen before you make a decision that affects others. Networking will pay off in terms of the people you connect with and the information you receive. Love is highlighted. 4 stars
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't let an emotional situation stop you from doing what's right. Only offer what's feasible and be prepared to do things a little differently in order to reach desired results. An element of surprise will help you grab the attention of someone important. 2 stars
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stick to the people you know you can trust. Sharing information with someone unfamiliar will lead to a loss. Stick close to home and explore some of the creative ideas you would like to flush out and put into play in the future. 5 stars
