BIRTHDAY GUY: Actor Hunter Parrish was born in Richmond, Va., today in 1987. This birthday guy has played Silas on the hit series "Weeds" since 2005. He's also guest-starred on "Law & Order: SVU," "Close to Home" and "Campus Ladies." On the big screen, Parrish's movie credits include "17 Again," "It's Complicated" and "Paper Man."
ARIES (March 21-April 19): The urge to travel might be irresistible. If you are caught in the grip of wanderlust and a yen to explore, then a trip to a casino to try your hand at a new game or just a walk through the woods might suit.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It's only superstition. Step on a crack and you won't necessarily break someone's back just because it is Friday the 13th. Your companions this evening might be harboring false impressions or fallacies.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Abracadabra. You may feel fit as a fiddle, but even a Stradivarius needs to be tuned up before you can begin to play. Tonight you may be tempted to abruptly change the subject or change your tune.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your plans may be bigger than a breadbox. Your group of friends might encourage you to go out on a limb. Don't start remodeling projects, as your ideas could exceed your practical experience.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Less is much more. Enthusiasm should be worn in minute amounts, like a fine perfume. It might be a very good idea to count to 10 before making sweeping statements or jumping to conclusions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Improve your mind. Utilize a restless need for excitement in a beneficial and fulfilling way. Take a chance on the latest movie, dine at a new restaurant or explore the latest hot spot for a quick thrill.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Friday the 13th could fill you with fear. Throw some salt over your left shoulder, cross your fingers, and continue enjoying some homegrown pleasures. A pizza, some popcorn and a movie might be fine.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You are inspired to be fired up. You are mentally alert, but willing to believe tall tales. Stories about Friday the 13th might send a chill down your spine, so you aren't anxious to test your luck tonight.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You jump through hoops without fear. Think through your ideas before acting. You have a penchant for performing feats of daring, but this could lead others to see you as rash and reckless.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You probably won't worry much about walking under ladders or black cats crossing your path. On the other hand, your luck could change if you take your friends or relatives for granted today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Physical activities dust away mental cobwebs. An acquaintance might hope to take a relationship to a more intimate level. Enjoy a new friendship, but don't commit yourself to anything permanent.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get back what you give. If you have been generous with your time, money and expertise, someone will be glad to lend you a helping hand. Games of chance and competitive sports might be costly.
IF MAY 13 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: As the old musical says, you're the top, and your popularity might grow like a weed during the next six to eight weeks. Your talents as a visionary seem to attract romance, and you heartily enjoy both vacations and creative endeavors. A fresh sense of professionalism or business insights can make you a star in late August and early September, especially in community groups and social settings. You may reach the height of business success in September if you are not distracted by an impossible romantic dream. In October and early November, stringent demands and obligations could test your character, so avoid initiating anything of major importance and sidestep significant changes.
