If your birthday is today: Stop fretting over what others are doing and start working on your own strategy to build a better life. Ask yourself what you want, and consider what you need to do to find peace of mind and happiness. Don't sit still when it's time to make life choices.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Consider what truly matters to you. It's time to reevaluate your life and direction. Be honest with those who will be affected by the choices you make.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) A change can make or break you. Don't act on impulse or let your emotions lead you down the wrong path. Think before you act; nurture what you love.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Keep moving toward your goal. Refuse to let distractions come between you and what you want to achieve. The shortcut someone offers will lead to a setback. Use common sense.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) He who hesitates is lost. Consider what you want and make it happen. It's up to you to control a situation if you want it to turn in your favor.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Spend more time sorting through your personal papers, and consider your medical or legal options. Refuse to let your emotions stop you from making the right decision.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Take time to consider what's best for you. Running with the fast crowd or letting others entice you to get involved in something that isn't good for you should be avoided.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You'll be drawn to questionable people and concepts. Look for flaws in whatever is being offered to you before you decide to take part. A partnership needs an adjustment.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You'll have too many choices and too many people tempting you. Take a step back and consider what's realistic and what isn't. Look at the facts before you take a leap of faith.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20). Physical action will get you closer to your destination than will arguing with someone who doesn't see things your way. Romance is on the rise.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Put your energy into something unique, original or creative. Refuse to let others' actions stop you from reaching your goals. Focus on achieving, not on getting into a debate.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Personal growth, physical improvements and getting things done on time should be your priorities. Don't follow someone else when you have your own responsibilities to complete.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Get away from anyone who is causing confusion in your life. Surround yourself with positive people who share your beliefs and complement what you have to offer.
