CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Andie MacDowell, 47; Tony Danza, 54; Iggy Pop, 58; Charles Grodin, 70
HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Be fully prepared before you leap into something you've never tried before. A power struggle is likely, and if you don't know your stuff, you may find yourself at a loss. This can be a fabulous year, but only if you put everything you've got into what you are trying to accomplish. Your numbers are 8, 22, 29, 36, 38, 44
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Avoid any sort of emotional upset. If someone is doing his or her best to pressure you into doing something, back away. You have plenty of other choices. An opportunity to meet someone who is good for you is apparent.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The more involved you are today in activities you enjoy, the better. Love is looking positive. Start something new, and it will open your eyes to a possibility for the future.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do something to please yourself because you won't be able to please anyone around you today. A massage, a hair appointment or a short trip to a mall will spark your imagination.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may like to spend time at home, but today you will do far better if you get out and do things with friends. A little romance will perk you up. You will discover some very interesting information.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): No matter what you are working on it will be important to finish on time. You need to prove something to yourself and to others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may have a change of heart. Love is certainly in the picture, but how you handle it will be the question. Take a look at your past relationships, and you'll know what to do.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put your money into your residence or home comfort. Get involved in any opportunity that is competitive or challenging.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will have the discipline and the inventiveness to pull something off, far beyond anyone in your field. You will know exactly what you have to do, so don't hold back today. Love can be yours.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may think you have everything under control but, in truth, you probably don't. Don't be surprised if something unexpected pops up at the last minute, leaving you in a dilemma.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A short trip or attending a trade show or conference will result in some fascinating ideas and opportunities. Love will be in a high cycle, so don't forget to include your partner or, if single, someone to whom you are attracted.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Money, health and legal concerns should all be taken care of quickly today. Make some changes to your home that will make your life less stressful.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Engage in family discussions. Someone you are close to will want to introduce you to a new friend. Relationships are looking good, so don't hold back.
