THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAY: You're ready to go out and play. Then you hear those famous last words: "Be careful!" (Like you don't know that, right?) C'mon. Adults want you to have fun. They're just trying to protect you -- like human bubble wrap. So say "OK" and go enjoy yourself; just be . . . well, you know!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You, my friend, are on a roll. I mean, you are at a real high point. In fact, you are so hot you're cool!
Aries (March 21-April 19): Think spring! Get the old bike out and dusted off. Best get yourself in shape, too.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Say there, musically inclined person. Yes, I'm talking to you. You don't have to play an instrument to be considered talented, duh. Sing. Sing. Sing.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): Your kid sibs really look up to you. Not just because you're taller. Because they admire you and want to be like you. Set a good example.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): With the Olympics over, you'll have to entertain yourself. No prob. Pick an interest and get involved.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): What do you mean, you want a job? Uh, hello . . . what do you think school is? You don't get paid in cash, but knowledge is very valuable!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Nothing to celebrate? Have a party anyway. Get pals to bring a dish from their ethnic backgrounds. Your friends will eat it up!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Looking for your niche in life, huh? Hey, no need to limit yourself to one thing. Do it all. Write, take pics, tell jokes.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Welcome back! Not that you went any place that you could send a postcard from. It's like you took leave of you. Don't do that! You're great as is.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You should be proud of the person you are. Giving, caring, loving, accepting and a bunch of other "-ing" words. Here's another one: amazing!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What's another name for your piggy bank? Starvin' Marvin. Feed him! Baby-sit. Walk a dog. Wash a car. Tutor.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Nope, it's not a dream. Things are going OK for you. Gee, don't be so surprised . . . you deserve it! You try really hard. Good things to good folks!
