If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Jesse Plemons (1988) shares your birthday. You are idealistic and sometimes childlike. Others love your sincerity and your fascination with your dreams. Ta da! This is the year you have been waiting for. It’s a time of expansion and great activity. Take advantage of opportunities. A major change might take place, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2005. It’s time to try your wings!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a playful, creative day. It’s a fabulous day for a date or social occasions. Enjoy sports events and fun activities with children. Try to use this feel-good day to accomplish something good and useful for yourself. Don’t waste your good luck!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You have a warm feeling in your tummy. In fact, this is a good day to take stock of your life and give yourself a report card in general. How are you doing at the art of living? What new ideas would like to explore?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a great day to schmooze because you enjoy the company of others and they will love to see your face, too. Talk to people about your hopes for the future. Interaction with younger people is likely. Meanwhile, secret romance swoons dizzily along.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are high viz. now, and today in particular, you look fabulous! This is why people are attracted to you. This is also why you might suddenly have an opportunity for work-related travel. Whatever you do will expand your circle of admirers. (Trust me.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You can expand your horizons. Talk to people from different backgrounds. Go somewhere you’ve never been before because you want to travel, learn new things and feel excited about your world. And get your ducks in a row to be ready for opportunities in publishing, medicine and the law.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Although this is a poor day for important decisions, especially financial decisions, you can do your homework. Research arrangements that will ultimately benefit you in terms of shared property, loans and mortgages. Wait until tomorrow to do the deal.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a lovely day to schmooze with friends and partners. You’re in good spirits and will enjoy the company of others; they will be happy to see you as well. Quite likely, you’ll make big plans with someone; however, wait until tomorrow to finalize things. Check the Moon Alert.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a positive day at work. Some of you will have work-related travel. Dealing with foreign countries and other cultures will be successful. Nevertheless, this is a poor day for major decisions. Just coast and keep to business as usual, but hey — everyone is in good spirits!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Romance, sports events, parties, social occasions, the arts, the theater and playful activities with children will be a great success. Make the most positive use of this energy that you can. Because of the Moon Alert, don’t shop for anything other than food and gas.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will enjoy entertaining at home. You will also enjoy cocooning at home. (Your choice.) Something to do with home, family or real estate makes you enthusiastic. Please note: This is a poor day to make an offer on real estate or shop for your home. Wait until tomorrow.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

It’s true what they say about the power of positive thinking — it’s positive! Your thoughts are constantly creating your universe. That’s why you are so upbeat and happy. This is a creative day for writing but a poor day to shop or make important decisions.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You have a strong focus on money now, and you have big ideas! Please know that today is a Moon Alert, which means you will be wise to postpone purchases until tomorrow (except for food and gas). Write down your ideas because they might be valuable.
