Merced Sun-Star - - Sports - — EUGENIA LAST

CELEBRI­TIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Jack Os­bourne, 33; Parker Posey, 50; Court­ney Thorne-Smith, 51; Bon­nie Raitt, 69.

Happy Birth­day: Take ev­ery­thing in and con­sider your op­tions be­fore you de­cide to make a move this year. Don’t let any­one up­set you or pres­sure you to do some­thing that you aren’t ready to pur­sue. Tim­ing is cru­cial when deal­ing with mat­ters of a per­sonal na­ture. Know what you are up against and strate­gize the best way to come out on top. Your num­bers are 9, 17, 26, 32, 34, 40, 46.


(March 21-April 19): Be se­cre­tive about your plans. An im­por­tant re­la­tion­ship can be taken to the next level if you are will­ing to make a cou­ple of changes. Speak up and clear up any mis­un­der­stand­ings you might have re­gard­ing joint money or pos­ses­sions. ★★★★★


(April 20May 20): Re­in­force your po­si­tion and your claims. Know what you want. Show in­ter­est as well as con­cerns. The best way to deal with sit­u­a­tions is to be di­rect, fair and will­ing to com­pro­mise. ★★★


(May 21-June 20): Dis­cus­sions will help clear up a mis­un­der­stand­ing. Ex­pect some­one to med­dle in your af­fairs. Take steps to keep per­sonal in­for­ma­tion and de­ci­sions se­cret for the time be­ing. A per­sonal or pro­fes­sional ges­ture will be dif­fi­cult to re­sist. ★★★


(June 21-July 22): Re­view your plans and present what you would like to see hap­pen. Open up a di­a­logue with some­one you have worked with, and they may of­fer in­ter­est­ing sug­ges­tions that will help you pur­sue your plans. ★★★


(July 23-Aug. 22): Make a change and make a dif­fer­ence. In­ter­act with peo­ple who share your goals. Net­work with peo­ple you see as lead­ers and self-starters. Much can be ac­com­plished if you are sin­cere and pas­sion­ate about what you want to see hap­pen. ★★★★★


(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a stance and fol­low through. You can bring about im­por­tant change if you are will­ing to stand up for your be­liefs. A meet­ing, a con­fer­ence or reach­ing out to peo­ple who have some­thing to of­fer will help your progress. ★★★★


(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t jeop­ar­dize your abil­ity to get ahead or to hold on to what is yours. Some­one will use un­der­handed tac­tics if you are too ac­com­mo­dat­ing. Keep your per­sonal in­for­ma­tion a se­cret, and refuse to let any­one bully you. ★★★


(Oct. 23Nov. 21): Be­ing se­cre­tive will be in your best in­ter­est. The less oth­ers know about your plans, the eas­ier it will be to reach your goal. Ar­gu­ing or deal­ing with ex­ces­sive peo­ple should be avoided. Know your lim­its and stick to your plan. ★★★


(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep your story straight. If you get mixed up, you will give the wrong im­pres­sion. Your fo­cus should be on your­self. Per­sonal changes will lift your spir­its and make you feel good. Use your at­tributes to fur­ther your po­si­tion. ★★★


(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t take any­thing for granted. Just when you least ex­pect it, some­one will throw you a curve­ball that will send you on a tail­spin. Stay on top of what’s go­ing on around you and the peo­ple you deal with daily. ★★★★


(Jan. 20Feb. 18): How you han­dle your fi­nances should be changed to suit the eco­nomic cli­mate. Don’t fret over what oth­ers are do­ing. Keep your per­sonal mat­ters sep­a­rate and safe. Walk away from any­one try­ing to per­suade you to take a risk. ★★


(Feb. 19-March 20): Lis­ten, but do not re­act. Some­one tries to co­erce you into some­thing you shouldn’t do. Ex­ces­sive and in­dul­gent be­hav­ior should be avoided. Fo­cus on gain­ing sta­bil­ity, not up­set­ting what you’ve worked so hard to do. ★★
