Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For April 17, 2021

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is no time to shrink from the responsibilities that you have shouldered for some time. You know how to get it all done once you start.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Adjustments you make to your work today will be in response to what you've seen happen to others, and you can avoid any serious setbacks.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've been in the dark about someone's situation long enough. Today you must be willing to ask the questions that beg to be asked.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- As doubts set in today, you may be required to do something that doesn't sit in your sweet spot. You must struggle through as best you can.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be asked to justify your actions today -- which will be no problem at all provided you have given them even the slightest thought.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are in no mood for the kinds of distractions that you know you're in for if things stay the same. You must make a few valuable changes.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll have your hands full today, that's certain -- but you mustn't neglect your basic needs. Focus on that which keeps you balanced.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must keep your private reactions under control today, and be sure that how you respond to another's actions is completely "in proportion."

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll be doing yourself a favor today by saying no when someone close asks for one. You can be generous another day, not now.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have trouble getting your timing right today, but that's not really your fault. See what others are doing, and adjust accordingly.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be inspired by someone at one moment and ready to part company the next -- and these two reactions are in no way interrelated today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your turn is coming, and you mustn't rush things. You can use the time to lay the groundwork for a coming effort; assemble your team today.
