YOUR BIRTHDAY by Stella Wilder
The coming week will inspire a great many to look forward eagerly to what is coming next -- and for some, that promises to be something very big, indeed. It's important, however, for everyone to be sure that prior commitments have been met before the focus shifts forward -- this will require a creative combination of past and future concerns as individuals prepare themselves for challenges that are fast approaching. All must realize that there are only so many days in the week and so many hours in a day; he or she who ignores the passage of time will run out of it before having a chance to deliver the goods. Those who have experience with juggling their affairs may have a distinct advantage.
There is an emotional component to the week that cannot be ignored, but putting too much emphasis on feelings can also backfire and work against those who are deeply committed to the work at hand. There is no time for knee-jerk reactions or self-indulgence, but there is no room for robots, either.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Rather than ask yourself how it happened, you must get to work right away solving a problem that has developed slowly over time. (April 5-April 19) -- Your assistance is likely to be sought by those who know what has to be done without knowing how to do it. It's up to you!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Getting things done is as easy as one-two-three, as long as you address the issues that arise in the proper order. Prioritize. (May 6-May 20) -- You're in no mood to do things in the same old way, but a new idea may not be near at hand. Be patient.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Though someone else may advocate patience, you realize that what everyone needs is a heart-pumping, fast-paced approach. (June 7-June 20) -- You're afraid that your ideas may not be embraced by others, but by week's end you'll see just how valuable they really are.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You'll feel charged up and ready to go as the week opens, and nothing is likely to stand in your way if you remain enthusiastic. (July 8-July 22) -- You have little time to waste! You must swing into action at the earliest opportunity and keep moving until your work is done.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're able to work with all kinds, but you may encounter someone who brings out the worst in you. It's only temporary. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- If you're still not able to see the results of your efforts, it may be time to move on to something else. You're ready for the change.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may attract some criticism for a decision made under pressure. Take a breath when you can, and revisit the situation. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Your study of a certain situation is likely to lead you to a surprising conclusion. Soon, others will be on your side.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You are looking ahead, not back, so you are anticipating what's coming without appreciating what you've done. You must do both! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're waiting until the time is just right before making a move that you've planned for some time. A friend is waiting with you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may need more information than that which has been made available to you. You must pursue all realistic leads. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may be getting bogged down by a situation that is completely irrelevant. Focus on what matters.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- It's time for you to modernize your approach, but this doesn't mean that you give up your old-fashioned aesthetics. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You've done some good work, and it looks like you know what you're doing, but looks can be deceiving. Prove yourself!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- A change you've recently made is likely to make a big difference to those you encounter throughout the week. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You can enjoy a new beginning of sorts, but don't get carried away! You have some work to do, and an old concern remains.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You'll want to clarify your limits as well as another's demands. Don't proceed without knowing what's expected. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- A creative solution to a nagging problem frees you up to address an issue you've been neglecting for some time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Change is in the air, and it must start with you. If you're afraid of where it might lead, you'll never make your mark. Embrace it! (March 6-March 20) -- You may feel that you've been dragged down by routine affairs. You'll have a chance to enjoy a new beginning.
