If Your Birthday Is April 30

Actress Kirsten Dunst (1982) shares your birthday. You are professional, strong and reliable. You dominate others but with grace and tact. Family and friends are important to you and you feel great affection for them. Because of a financial accumulation in the next three years, settle your debts this year. To clear away indebtedness is the thrust of this year. Consolidate your affairs for future growth. Get ready.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Discussions with partners and close friends will be practical and sensible, which is why this is a good day to talk to others, whether it’s a personal discussion or a professional one. Sit down with someone and make long-range plans.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You will be productive at work because you are focused and motivated. Furthermore, you won’t mind doing boring, routine work that has to be done. You will pay attention to detail because you will be like the wise carpenter: “Measure twice, cut once.”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is an ideal day to sit down with others to discuss the future education and welfare of children, especially your children. It’s also a good day to make practical, long-range plans about vacations and social events, as well as matters related to the arts.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Family discussions including discussions about family businesses will go well. People are in a thrifty, careful frame of mind and they want practical results. Someone older might have good advice for you. It never hurts to listen, does it?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Any kind of study or writing that requires discipline will go well because you have a disciplined mind. It will not wander. It will pay attention to details. Relatively speaking, it will do what you want. Choose work that needs to be done and get down to it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

When it comes to financial matters, you will be frugal and sensible. You want practical, long-lasting results. Likewise, if shopping, you will only buy practical, long-lasting items. Naturally, this is a good day to discuss business deals in a sensible way.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign dancing with stern Saturn. This puts a different spin on things, and it’s a serious spin. In fact, you might just want to be alone with your thoughts. If not, you will shun frivolous types and seek out older, serious people.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

No doubt, you will prefer to work alone or behind the scenes. It’s not that you’re antisocial; it’s more that you want to be by yourself and get as much done as possible. It will please you to sort out your finances to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Seek out someone older than you or someone who is more experienced for their input on something. You won’t regret this. Why not stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before you? Build on their experience and learn from their mistakes.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

In a way, you are high viz. today. In fact, personal details about your private life might be public. Don’t worry because you will appear sensible, prudent and responsible in the eyes of others. Whatever the case, others will respect you — and you like respect.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a good day to study serious subjects. It’s also a good day to deal with legal matters, filling out forms, applying for citizenship, and dealing with details regarding future travel plans. Someone older might have advice for you, perhaps even a teacher.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Think about how you can reduce your debt and improve your financial standing in life so that you have less to worry about. People put such an emphasis on making more money. But reducing your debt is huge! No debt equals more freedom.
