HAPPY BIRTH­DAY: This year a se­ri­ous at­ti­tude sur­rounds your spend­ing and your will­ing­ness to go over­board. This might make you happy be­cause you feel more in con­trol. If you are sin­gle, you will meet some­one who knocks your socks off. How­ever, the two of you might not have the same goals or life­style. If you are at­tached, you and your sweetie enjoy be­ing to­gether more and more. Know that your part­ner might have a dif­fi­cult time ad­just­ing to the more dis­ci­plined you. Capri­corn sup­ports you in man­i­fest­ing a long-term de­sire.

The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-dy­namic; 4-pos­i­tive; 3-av­er­age; 2-so-so; 1-dif­fi­cult.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ You’ll re­spond to a re­quest. While off do­ing er­rands or vis­it­ing a friend, buy a lot­tery ticket. The un­ex­pected can oc­cur around money and funds in gen­eral. You will want to be lav­ish with a loved one. Make sure you have the bud­get to do just that. Tonight: Busy with hol­i­day fun.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20) ★★★ You might de­cide to make a phone call to some­one you rarely speak to. Not only does this con­ver­sa­tion give you a sense of well-be­ing, it also al­lows your imag­i­na­tion to change sce­nar­ios and top­ics. Buy tick­ets to see a play or a con­cert. Tonight: At a fa­vorite place with loved ones.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ You know you have no rea­son to com­plain. Oth­ers seek you out. A loved one’s mood of­ten gets to you. Ei­ther go out or do some­thing that will help you move past this per­son’s is­sue. You might be sur­prised by some­thing some­one tells you. Tonight: With your fa­vorite per­son.

CAN­CER (June 21-July 22) ★★★ If you need time to bake, wrap presents or ad­dress hol­i­day cards, put other tasks on the back burner for now. In­vite a loved one to join you. Both of you will have more fun cre­at­ing an ex­pe­ri­ence to be re­mem­bered. Tonight: Con­sider ad­ding to your hol­i­day dec­o­ra­tions.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★ You man­age to squeeze nearly ev­ery good mo­ment out of life that you can. It’s no sur­prise that you might be drag­ging. Stop. Do ev­ery­one a fa­vor and take care of your­self. Sched­ule a mas­sage, take a nap — you know what works. Tonight: Grab a fa­vorite dessert on the way home.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ You tend to be overly se­ri­ous with a key per­son in your life. This per­son might love all of the at­ten­tion you are giv­ing him or her. A call that in­volves travel is likely to re­sult in plans for the two of you. Be sure that you both want to par­tic­i­pate in this. Tonight: Hang some mistle­toe.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ You al­ways make fam­ily a high pri­or­ity. You might not un­der­stand why one of your fam­ily members seems ir­ri­tated with you. What this per­son seems to be pro­ject­ing onto you could have noth­ing to do with you. Take a step back, if need be. Tonight: Time for eggnog.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★★ Re­turn im­por­tant calls quickly be­fore so­lid­i­fy­ing your plans. You might find that you want to do some­thing to­tally dif­fer­ent. Visit with oth­ers, or per­haps go off and get into a beloved win­ter sport. Clear­ing your en­ergy re­news you. Tonight: Reach out to a neigh­bor or rel­a­tive.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★ Be­fore you make plans, take an hour or so to go over your bud­get, bal­ance your check­book and make sure you have paid your bills. Only then can you go out and get tick­ets to a hol­i­day event. You will feel much freer if you pro­ceed in this man­ner. Tonight: Meet up with a rel­a­tive.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ Oth­ers might won­der where this sud­den abun­dant en­ergy is com­ing from, con­sid­er­ing how you were yes­ter­day. You are an ex­cel­lent ex­am­ple of what R and R can do for some­one. Know­ing that the world is your oys­ter, make plans that will de­light you. Tonight: Out late.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★ You eas­ily could catch a case of the bah-hum­bugs. What can you do to avoid be­ing such a grump? Only you know what works best for you. Go off and do just that. Those around you will be de­lighted once you recharge your bat­ter­ies. Tonight: Share a se­cret with a loved one.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ Per­haps you are aware of how down a friend tends to get around the hol­i­days. You of­ten com­mis­er­ate with this per­son, yet it does not help. Per­haps change the sce­nario by drag­ging him or her out the door to go ice skat­ing. A movie also might work. Tonight: Now the fun can be­gin.
