BIRTHDAY GAL: Actress Mimi Rogers was born in Coral Gables, Fla., on this day in 1956. This birthday gal has appeared in the recurring role of Robin on "Two and a Half Men" since 2011. She's also guest-starred on "The Client List," though she may be better known for her vast body of film work, which includes roles in such movies as "Hope Springs," "Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery" and her critically acclaimed performance in "The Rapture."

ARIES (March 21-April 19): For a few hours you might doubt your worthiness or feel somewhat isolated and cut off from others. Keep your confidence turned up high and your worries will dissipate. Find solace in communications with a sensitive friend or lover.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can't win the race if you're too busy looking behind to see who's catching up. Quit worrying about the competition and focus on doing your job to the best of your ability. It isn't whether you win or lose that actually counts.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can make a difference without being different. Follow your inner instinct and take charge of a situation. Don't be afraid to interject an opinion and offer solutions. This is not a good day to get a haircut or buy fashionable clothing.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your feelings may be hurt if you try to compete at a higher level than you've prepared for. Don't pretend to be more than you are. You'll find that honesty is the best policy, even when there is a temptation to stretch the truth.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Strut your stuff and show you are tough. If you fulfill responsibilities to the hilt without hesitation, you'll enjoy the greatest satisfaction. This will also give you time to enjoy the fruits of your efforts without any nagging guilt.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Monetary gain will seem elusive unless you examine pros and cons more carefully. Study all the angles before making a final decision. This is not the time to rush into the fray and demand your due payment, but for contemplation and planning.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You'll shine when given a chance to interact with groups of people and explain your views. Your business sense can be accentuated in a positive way if you're objective and fair, but others may be put off by outright ambitions.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Those who forget the past are destined to repeat it. You have a difficult choice to make, but know that doing the same things you've done before without success is fruitless. Take your time; wait a few days to make key changes.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A brief bout of pessimism might undermine your confidence just when you need it the most. Only spend money to replace things that have fallen apart or worn out, but don't buy clothing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Some things can't be perfect, including you, so don't struggle to make yourself appear to be infallible. Be tolerant of the mistakes of others and take a moment to think before making judgmental statements.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Friendly messages can brighten your day. This can be an excellent time to reach out to someone who's drifted away, out of your circle. Old friends will seem like they never left and new ones are even better.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You have the strength that lies in your convictions. Sensitive people may feel more deeply than others, but there's no need to think that makes anyone weak. You can be sensitive to the good that lies within everyone.

IF JANUARY 27 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Keep paper and pen nearby during the next 6-8 weeks so it will be easy to write down ideas and thoughts as they occur. If you have an artistic nature, you could be inspired to dabble in new techniques. If you're single, you might find an exotic vacation with a congenial companion appealing. In May and early June, your judgment could be off base and your ambitions could outstrip your common sense. Hold off on making major decisions and crucial changes until September or early October, when Lady Luck will be there to help you. Opportunities for advancement or improvement could appear and help you become better situated in your chosen field.
