Happy birthday. You make relationships a priority, and as a result, they thrive. This month you’ll show your strength through tenderness. You’ll be lucky with making long-term decisions. A deal that goes down in December will pay you in July. January shakes up your social scene with new blood. There’s a move in August.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make healthy choices and plans in the morning. And when it’s time to implement those decisions, there’s no choice to be made.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Consider the obstacles you might face so that you can proactively deal with them. The more prepared you are for the outcomes you don’t want, the less likely they are to occur.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): The goal is to win someone over to your side without making them think they’ve crossed some kind of line. You’ll do this with your charm, friendliness and humor. Laughter is a kind of agreement.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Like a little bird that has broken out of an egg, you have made it past a barrier but are still not ready to fly. Let people take care of you while you gather the strength you need to take the next risk.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you would rather be doing something else, the task at hand won’t be fun. You can make the present seem less like work by reminding yourself you may as well get into the spirit of it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When it feels like too much work has depleted your good mood, dreaming will invigorate you. You’ll get energy from making goals and/or imagining your improved life.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You always try to move upward on the morality scale, so people around you behaving badly will hold no sway over your actions. Peer pressure is very real to you. Avoid problematic associations.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Because you have moxie, you know what it is. The people who don’t have it don’t recognize it in you. Don’t blame them, but don’t give them an important responsibility, either.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You intended your life story to go one way, and now it seems you’re living it another. Whether the versions are close or drastically different, just know that every life story goes through this.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re a regular productivity master. If it’s been done by someone else, you’ll choose a different task. Duplicate work, ideas and opinions aren’t helpful, and that’s all the reason you need to be yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Once you do all you can do, the next step is to determine that it was enough. Don’t forget that step. Give yourself the satisfaction of acknowledging that you gave it your all.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): If you’re not sure how to judge a situation, look at the people involved. What’s their mood? Do they seem happy or malcontent? If you’re not sure how to judge a person, look at his friends.
