BIRTHDAY GUY: Actor Tim Daly was born in New York City on this day in 1956. This birthday guy's most prolific role was that of Joe Davenport on the '90s TV series "Wings." His portrayal of J.P. Dolan on "The Sopranos" earned him an Emmy nomination; he currently stars on the series "Private Practice." Daly also voiced the Man of Steel in numerous "Superman" animated films.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Even the least-important transactions may run smoothly. Expect to receive a helping hand just when you need it from someone who anticipates your needs. Make purchases of items of taste or beauty.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your fair share might last a lifetime. Find ways to show solidarity and support for those who put their money or their time on the line for your benefit. Romantic moments can multiply under these stars.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You are smarter than you think. What some people view as evasiveness might work in your favor. In some instances, it is better to escape from a difficult situation instead of facing it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): When you have made your bed, sleep in it. The story of the princess and the pea may bring home a message for you. Too much sensitivity to peer pressure can cause turbulence or misunderstandings.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You offer a desirable package just as you are; no plain brown wrapping paper is needed, as you have nothing to hide. It is quite easy for singles to find a congenial partner under these stars.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A bed of roses shouldn't have thorns. Add some whimsical decorating touches to your home and turn it into your castle. A relationship matter that has caused doubts or worries will clear up.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Friends and lovers should not be confused. Consider it a privilege to meet new acquaintances or to offer help to a stranger. Group activities, however, could distract you from key one-on-one moments.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Groups or organizations can eat up your social calendar. It may be difficult to have some one-on-one time. Someone might prove understanding or intuitively say the perfect thing to put doubts to rest.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Bridges can be built. You might finally understand another person's point of view. A financial investment technique that has been fuzzy might come into focus. Extend a firm hand in friendship.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Charity begins at home. Acts of kindness can make you feel that you are living on top of a pedestal. Take time to approach others with ideas or heart-to-heart talks. Buy items that must be durable.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, so give those eyes something to see. Pay attention to your appearance. Shine your shoes, get a haircut or put together an outfit that tells the world you have arrived.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can never have too much money or too many friends. The problem might be that the friends want too much of your money. The more you share with others, the more you will receive in return.
IF MARCH 1 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your nose won't be far from the grindstone for the next several weeks. In May, be on the lookout for a chance to permanently brighten your life. That is an excellent time to make business decisions or to put financial affairs in order, because you seem to have better judgment when dealing with the outside world of commerce. Stick to friendships this summer - and don't expect a fling to turn into anything permanent. In August, you might be sidetracked by a person or situation that is not what it seems, but by December, your personal guardian angel will help you make a wise decision.
