Mercury, planet of the mind, is so strong on your birthday that if you believe that your dreams can come true they most likely will. What happens in the world first takes shape inside your head, so keep a crystal clear vision of what it is you wish to achieve.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):

Something out of the ordinary will happen today, something you will be able to take advantage of. You have never been the sort to be modest about your achievements and a few days from now you will be singing your own praises!

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

Focus on other people’s needs today, because the planets will give you the chance to be of service to someone who does not share your strength of character. And, of course, what you do for others now will, one day, come back to you.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

Today’s sun-Mercury link will do wonders for your confidence and also your popularity. Just remember that it’s not possible to accept each and every invitation, social or professional, that comes your way. There’s only so much of you to go around!

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

Money may not be everything but it has its place in the world and with a little bit more of it you would be able to do some of the things you have often dreamed about. It’s time to start using your talents in a more focused way.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

The planets will give a major boost to your self-belief over the next 24 hours (do you really need it?) and before the day is over you will have started something that has the potential to transform your life. Trust what your heart tells you.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

Cosmic activity in your next-door-neighbor sign of Leo may at times make you doubt yourself but today you have enough mental energy to overcome that negative outlook and do something to prove you’re a winner. Make sure it’s something sensible.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

The planets will bring you into contact with people who share your ideals. They will also boost your belief that you can make a difference in the world and that working with others you can change things for the better. But don’t get fanatical about it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

A career change of some kind is likely very soon. Whether it is a change you make for yourself or a change that is forced on you remains to be seen but if you do feel so inclined then by all means make the first move.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

No matter how busy you may be at the moment you won’t be satisfied until you have booked a vacation or promised friends that you will visit them over the weekend. Travel brings out the best in you. All work and no play just isn’t healthy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

Like everyone else you have fears that can hold you back from fulfilling your potential, but today’s influences will help you confront them and overcome them. There is always a rational explanation for things that go bump in the night.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

If there is someone you want to get closer to emotionally you must not hesitate for even a moment: let them know how you feel. On the work front, too, the more you open up to other people the more they will want to do for you.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

You may be the sort who spends more time dreaming than doing but today the planets will inspire you to take a more hands-on approach. Anything of a practical nature will go well for you, so get your act together and get things done.
