Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For April 23, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You cannot afford to do a thing merely because someone else tells you to do it; you must be sure that there is something for you to gain.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone you know is ready to bust loose in some way, and you must not impede his or her efforts. You can answer a few important questions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- How do you know that what another tells you is really the truth? Today, you can -- and must -- catch up on news that you recently missed.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The history of your family not only proves a central fascination to you today, but it provides you with the key to unlock a mystery.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What someone else usually provides is unavailable to you today, and you must be willing to try something new to achieve a familiar result.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's good that you've made yourself learn a thing or two about a topic that is likely to become all-important today. You're ready for anything.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have been resisting someone else for quite some time, and your resolve is running out. Today you may choose to give in completely.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can make an important contribution to a group effort. Focus on something that has you moving in a new direction. Victory can be yours.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You will wake refreshed and ready to take on the day, but something may happen early on that threatens to derail your efforts.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone you know well is eager to involve you in something that may seem, on the outset, to be ill-advised. You need more info right away.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are ready to step out of your comfort zone and try something quite unusual -- at least for you. A friend has your back; give it your all.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're nearing the end of an important phase; what you've discovered about yourself recently can be applied to a new effort almost immediately.
