Birth­day Guy: Ac­tor Chris Tucker was born in At­lanta on this day in 1971. This birth­day guy has starred in such movies as “Billy Lynn’s Long Half­time Walk,” “Sil­ver Lin­ings Playbook,” and “Rush Hour.” He is next ru­mored to be repris­ing his role as Carter for a fourth time in the up­com­ing se­quel “Rush Hour 4.” Tucker made his act­ing de­but on an episode of “Han­gin’ with Mr. Cooper” in 1992.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Don’t just tell peo­ple how to do it, show them. You stand out in a crowd be­cause you have an in­tu­itive grasp of how to quickly make valu­able changes. Get at­ten­tion for what you do right, not for what you do wrong.

Tau­rus (April 20-May 20): Take ad­van­tage of ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to daz­zle oth­ers with your ex­per­tise. You may even ap­pear bet­ter than usual and win new sup­port­ers. You can be pro­fes­sional but friendly and warm at the same time.

Gem­ini (May 21-June 20): Dare to share. To tri­umph over im­prac­ti­cal fan­tasies, have faith in oth­ers and re­mem­ber that shar­ing is the ba­sis of all re­la­tion­ships. A part­ner may be en­thused about mon­ey­mak­ing plans even if they are un­fea­si­ble.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22): You may feel there is a con­test to see who can spend the most or land on top by ex­ag­ger­at­ing busi­ness prow­ess. You may spend too much money in an ef­fort to win ad­mi­ra­tion.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Fol­low your bliss. When ev­ery­one else is fall­ing apart, you are able to keep fo­cused on in­ner in­spi­ra­tions. The more ef­fort you put into achiev­ing your dreams the faster they will ma­te­ri­al­ize. Keep your piggy bank locked up.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Count your bless­ings, not your money. There is no need to stray from the truth or to em­bel­lish an idea, as it can stand up to scru­tiny. Re­main clear as a bell when com­mu­ni­cat­ing with fam­ily mem­bers and busi­ness as­so­ciates.

Li­bra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Have a pos­i­tive change of heart. Vague wor­ries and fears cen­tered on your rep­u­ta­tion will dis­si­pate leav­ing you free to take ac­tion. Don’t be shy or timid, as amorous ad­ven­tures are likely later this evening.

Scor­pio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your com­fort blan­ket might be knit with cre­ativ­ity. You have the tal­ent and re­source­ful­ness to amuse your­self while oth­ers twid­dle their thumbs. To cre­ate any­thing worth­while may re­quire phys­i­cal ef­fort. Sagit­tar­ius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Lis­ten to other peo­ple. Gather opin­ions and ad­vice be­fore you make a ma­jor change or cru­cial de­ci­sion. Some­one might have an in­ge­nious so­lu­tion that will solve a prob­lem that has held you back.

Capri­corn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Tackle the tough­est things first. Ig­nore dis­plays of self­ish­ness on the job or from part­ners and be gen­er­ous with your time and tal­ent. A lit­tle ini­tia­tive be­hind the scenes might earn you a healthy pat on the back.

Aquar­ius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Times flies, so it might be wise to cre­ate a flight plan. If there is quite a lot to do, just re­mem­ber that you are the pilot. A lit­tle ad­vance or­ga­ni­za­tion will en­sure that you reach your des­ti­na­tion with time to spare.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You will do no harm if you charm and dis­arm them. Your peo­ple skills are es­pe­cially ef­fec­tive in the work en­vi­ron­ment, where peo­ple will ap­pre­ci­ate and rec­og­nize your loy­alty. Be a peo­ple per­son.

if Au­gust 31 is your birth­day: Peace and pros­per­ity may be yours to en­joy as the next five to six weeks un­fold. You are shrewd about busi­ness mat­ters and have sound ad­vice at your dis­posal, so this is a good time to fo­cus on mon­ey­mak­ing ac­tiv­i­ties. Em­brace any op­por­tu­nity that comes your way this month or in De­cem­ber, as it will have pos­i­tive con­se­quences. Aim to launch your im­por­tant plans for the fu­ture in De­cem­ber when oth­ers are more in­clined to be gen­er­ous and will help you with what­ever you wish to ac­com­plish. In Fe­bru­ary, honor your ideal work ethic and keep your nose to the grind­stone so you will be pre­pared when op­por­tu­nity knocks again.
