HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, March 13, 2016:

This year you exude stability, openness and the ability to put your feelings into words. Many people find you to be unusually charming and direct at the same time. You might be prone to making a major purchase -- anything from a new cellphone to a car. Do some price comparison before you act. If you are single, so many desirable people start to appear in your immediate circle. You don’t have to commit until you are sure. If you are attached, the two of you often spend hours gabbing away, sharing news and funny moments. Your bond seems to grow as a result. GEMINI can exhaust you.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult


(March 21-April 19)

**** You could be hung up doing taxes or pricing out a new purchase. When you decide to stop, a loved one could become unusually caring. Return the sentiment rather than establish how exhausted you are; otherwise, you could create some hurt feelings. Tonight: Out late.

This Week: Push to complete as much as you can today and tomorrow.


(April 20-May 20)

**** You can’t go wrong if you follow your feelings. You seem to know what to do in order to make a dear friend happy. A feeling of excess surrounds you. Be careful later, as someone could become demanding. Establish boundaries with care. Tonight: Do more listening.

This Week: Use caution with spending.


(May 21-June 20)

*** Close the door if you need to get some work done, or if you want to snooze. You need more personal time. Once you emerge, you’ll be far more caring and will evoke a caring response. You could be in a situation where a partner wants your attention. Tonight: Play it by ear.

This Week: Positive energy surrounds you through Tuesday.


(June 21-July 22)

**** You know how to get your friends to join you. You love get-togethers that are planned around food. Why not invite everyone in your immediate circle to brunch? You will enjoy the food, but also all the news you hear. Plan on retreating later in the day. Tonight: Not to be found.

This Week: From Wednesday on, you’ll hit your peak.


(July 23-Aug. 22)

*** You’ll have to respond to someone’s needs in the morning. You are likely to accept extra responsibility, even though it could take time away from some other fun plans. A friend draws you toward him or her later, which allows for more playfulness. Tonight: Let the party begin.

This Week: Success is yours.


(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

**** You identify with others easily and respond accordingly. You have the ability to see the big picture and can understand where loved ones are coming from. You often open doors for friends. Later on, check in with an older family member. Tonight: Stand up and be counted.

This Week: Others expect a lot from you.


(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

**** You love close, intense moments, and today is no exception. With a loved one, you might act as if this is the first time you’ve ever interacted. Casting this veil of romance will bring you closer together. Make a call to a friend at a distance. Tonight: Off to a movie or concert.

This Week: Look beyond the obvious when making decisions.


(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

**** Others will make decisions that please you, especially as they demonstrate their loyalty to you. Be willing to express your feelings when relating to a key person. If you don’t, this person is likely to express some anger or frustration. Tonight: Encourage togetherness.

This Week: A partner keeps drawing you into important conversations.


(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

**** You might need part of the daytime for a project or some type of household chore. You could be doing taxes or getting into some spring cleaning. At a certain point, you no longer can put off visiting with a loved one. Tonight: Let your feelings be known.

This Week: Others determine events and accept more responsibility.


(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

***** Your creativity remains a source of fun when making plans. A child or new friend appreciates being included in what occurs. You might feel emotionally overwhelmed by everything that is happening around you. Tonight: Change gears, and be more practical.

This Week: Get as much done as possible before Wednesday.


(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

*** Getting going could take some effort. You might decide on a lazy day of being a couch potato. Know that you won’t be able to maintain that status past midafternoon. A friend or loved one seems determined to create some good times. Tonight: Go with the program.

This Week: Taming your wild side could be difficult. Consider taking off.


(Feb. 19-March 20)

*** Make your Sunday round of calls. You seem to have a need for communication. You often are not able to visit certain loved ones, which makes reaching out even more important. Cultivate these ties, and don’t allow them to fall to the wayside. Tonight: Indulge a family member.

This Week: Stay close to home until Wednesday.
