If Your Birthday Is Today

Doctor/TV host Mehmet Oz (1960) shares your birthday. You have lots of positive energy and courage, which allows you to push beyond boundaries. Many of you have scientific minds and like to study one discipline. Go slowly this year. There is something important to learn. The first half of this year will seem slow; but soon, your efforts of the past six years will start to show results! Get out into nature this year.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today is a mixed bag. On one hand, you have a strong, freedom-seeking urge. “I’m outta here!” But on the other hand, you have different rings. Seriously, on the other hand, today is completely unpredictable, full of surprises, detours, delays and potential accidents. Heads up!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

No doubt, you feel restless and a bit antsy. You might know why; you might not know why — either way, you feel this way. Do not let this energy build up within you so that you do something impulsively, especially financially speaking. Give everything a sober second thought.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A friend or a member of a group will surprise you. Someone might say something you least expect or do something that catches you off guard. Alternatively, you might meet a real character, someone who is avant-garde, bohemian or perhaps they’re an open book but the pages are blank.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your boss, parent or someone in a position of authority will surprise you. You might even have a disagreement. Maybe you are the person who is surprises them? Either way, whatever happens — guard against knee-jerk reactions. Don’t quit your day job.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Sudden travel opportunities might fall in your lap; alternatively, plan to travel might suddenly be canceled, changed or rescheduled. Yes, it’s a crapshoot. This same unpredictable quality will bring surprises to medicine, the law, higher education, the media and publishing.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Double check all your dealings with banking, taxes, debt, inheritances and insurance issues because a little surprise awaits you in these areas. To avoid loss or regret, stay in the loop and know what’s happening. Make friends with your bank account.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

A partner or close friend might surprise you by doing or saying something unusual. Or perhaps you (or someone else) suddenly wants more freedom or space in the relationship. Possibly, a more casual friendship will develop into something committed. Whatever happens — you’re leery.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your work routine will be interrupted by computer crashes, power outages, fire drills, staff shortages or equipment breakdowns. If you read this in the morning, allow extra time today so that you have wiggle room to deal with the unexpected.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is an accident-prone day for your kids or children you work with. Similarly, unexpected situations related to sports will occur. On the upside, a surprise invitation to a social event might please you. Something unusual will force you to change your day.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur because something will impact your home routine. It might be as minor as running out of coffee or bread for breakfast, or it could be as major as a power outage or visit from your mother-in-law.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a mildly accident-prone day for you, so pay attention to everything you do. However, your mind is alert and prepared to consider ideas that are outside of the box. This is also the classic day to see new places and meet new faces, because your daily routine is haywire.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Something to do with your finances is unpredictable. You might find money; you might lose money. Keep an eye and your possessions to guard them against loss or theft. However, you might have some clever money-making ideas. Who knows? A sudden purchase of high-tech items is possible.
