Happy birthday. Your worries dissipate as your strength and flexibility of spirit develop. You are like a ninja in the fight. Whatever is thrown in your path or directed at you, trust that you can use it to your advantage. This month and next increase the love flowing through your life. Financial luck is optimum in June and October. Leo and Libra people adore you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Some look at the scene and declare that there is little to be done about it.You’re more likely to roll up your sleeves in the spirit of determination than to throw up your hands in defeat.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t worry about pleasing the audience or the critics. Even your best efforts may not win them over, and even if you do, the victory will be hollow unless you first please yourself.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): It is easy to discount the learning you do when you are having fun. It feels so effortless that you hardly think to give yourself any credit. However, don’t be too modest, or you’ll miss an opportunity.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): There will be outside factors to challenge you and obstruct your path, so do not create extra impediments. Keep making the effort, and avoid making excuses. Stay strong and be ready.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The end is always the best place to start. Embrace the closing of a chapter, and stay alert to loose ends, unanswered questions and the like. The unresolved bits will lead you into the next adventure.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): However nice it feels to be envied or thought of as “cool,” it’s nothing compared to the feeling of helping others, making the world better and giving your love where it’s needed.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): It will be tempting to volunteer, but this is not an optimal moment. Any extra hours you have would be best used recharging. You’ll perform better at life when you’re well rested.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Your theory doesn’t need to be tested in order for you to know it’s correct. Don’t waste time trying to prove something to yourself or others. Trust that you know what you’re doing, and move forward.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You feel compelled to create. Although you may use your talents at work, your creativity is broader than a professional calling. Honor your creative spirit by indulging it beyond what you’re paid to do.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Centuries ago, new shoes were a much bigger deal to acquire. Now it’s commonplace to update your “kicks,” but you still get a thrill from this effort - or from any effort to help you walk the earth with grace and style.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Getting along with the opposite sex is easy once you stop expecting them to have the same strengths, manners and behaviors that yours does. Embracing differences makes for smooth sailing.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you have to. You feel open to new possibilities. You’ll blow past the former limits that once described you.
