— Happy birthday. This year brings a surge of personal power, and you’ll conquer the fear that once held you back. December sees you rise up along a chain of command. January bonds you with a small group of like minds. Together you will be unstoppable.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Someone is waiting for you to make the first move. Once it’s made, sparks will fly, and there will be no going back. So be sure this is really what you want.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): What should be familiar territory doesn’t seem to be at all. That’s because a new person is involved, and this person changes everything. Pause to come up with an approach that will better suit the current scene.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You know you’re in love when no matter what a certain someone does, you think it’s just adorable. Others may not share your opinion, but you’re so enamored that they’ll probably think you are “just adorable,” too.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): You got where you are by making a series of choices. You’ll break them down in your head to figure out the particular choices that were the most effective. You want to repeat them in order to get to the next place.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll probably need to bounce from Plan A to Plan B. And be sure to make a contingency plan if that one doesn’t work out, either. Luckily, whatever happens will be more fun than any of the previous plans.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ve always sensed that you were the rock in someone’s life, but you’ll feel it more now that he is leaning on you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Being nice is important to you, not only because you think it’s the right way to be, but also because you know that kindness is contagious.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): The one who finds the gold doesn’t have to start the rush.You’ll find a kind of treasure that has great value to you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be learning from someone else, possibly someone intimidating. Having more knowledge doesn’t make a person better than anyone else, but it sometimes makes a person believe this is true.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In regard to a certain relationship, you make it seem like you are letting things unfold according to their own timeline.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A healing process is under way. You can’t speed it along, but you can take good care of yourself, putting yourself in the kind of supportive environment that will allow nature to take its course.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A loved one may openly disagree with you, starting a lively debate. You may actually enjoy the argument and gain something valuable from it. Diverse opinions and talents make a relationship strong.
