Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For April 17, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you believe and what you don't will make a big difference to someone before the day is out. Make sure someone has the whole story.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You and a friend will be walking parallel tracks throughout much of the day. Put your best foot forward, especially when working together.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to get used to something new very quickly today so the transition from what you used to work with is as seamless as possible.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your confidence is on the rise, but you want to be sure that you don't overdo it when you are in the presence of someone with more seniority.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Share what you like with a loved one. You both will find yourselves enjoying it and each other more than others might be able to stand.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Give yourself a break today; you mustn't expect that you can recover from a sudden setback without experiencing any kind of slowdown.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It's time to get a little basic organization done so you don't lose sight of your intended goal today. Keep things streamlined.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What happens before and after may prove more important than what happens when you are in the thick of things today. Keep your eyes open.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Someone you respect may do something you do not understand today. As a result, you'll find yourself grappling with certain unusual issues.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may discover that you're being relied upon today for more than you had expected. Did you sign on for this, or is it an add-on?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're to be forgiven for not keeping up with everything that goes on around you today, as it's an unusually busy time. Follow the news.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be very near the edge today as you walk from here to there, but it's not likely to be dangerous for you until the return trip.
