Birthdays: David Boudia, 29; Kelly Clarkson, 36; Cedric the Entertainer, 54; Barbra Streisand, 76.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Step up and do something that will make a difference to the people you love, your peers or your community. Getting along and offering hope to others will put you in a good position when you need something in return.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t feel you have to follow the crowd or make physical changes you cannot afford. Use your intelligence and skills, not your appearance, to help you get ahead.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t do anything drastic. Changing your look will not turn out quite the way you want, and will only make matters worse.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Secrets are best kept that way. Someone you thought was like you will disappoint you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can make your current situation better if you aren’t excessive and don’t jeopardize your financial status. Practicality will weigh in heavy when it comes to easing stress and feeling secure about your future.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The changes you see going on around you aren’t a mandate for you to follow suit. Consider what’s best for you and surround yourself with like-minded people who can help you advance.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen to the voice of reason and put practical applications into play. Going with the flow instead of against it will prove to be in your best interest.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Overspending is not the way to win someone’s affection. Put your wallet away and use your personality and charm to turn heads.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Handling your relationships with colleagues or friends will be emotionally difficult. Be careful not to send the wrong message with your actions or words.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you want to make a positive change, do something that will lower your overhead. Emotional problems will spin out of control, causing stress if you can’t find a workable solution.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t feel you have to pay for someone else’s mistake. Offer suggestions but don’t physically or financially step in and take over.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let an offer confuse you. A change may be tempting, but find out exactly what’s expected of you.
