BIRTHDAY GAL: Actor James Le Gros was born in Minneapolis on this day in 1962. This birthday guy has played the recurring roles of Bruce Moran on “Person of Interest” and Wade Messer on “Justified.” He’s also appeared on episodes of “Billions,” “Battle Creek,” and “Constantine.” On the big screen, Le Gros’ film work includes both the original and the remake of “Point Break,” “Vantage Point,” and “Phantasm II.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Follow hallowed traditions that act as a suit of armor to protect you from criticism. Stick with the program; follow a schedule to the letter. Look forward to pleasurable mental stimulation over the weekend.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take advantage of the feast on the table where your social life is concerned. Relationships flow smoothly at the moment but financial affairs and issues may require some careful evaluation and strategizing.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Whistle while you work. A cheerful attitude will keep you at the top of your game and promote a positive team spirit. Watch out for time wasting activities if there is a crucial deadline looming on the horizon.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Use good business sense to ferret out inconsistencies in a plan or scheme. Rely on your people skills to obtain good advice from people in the know. Spend your precious pennies in the most sensible ways.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are the shining light at the center of your own universe. You are “it” in the game of life. Grease the wheels of progress by touching base with old contacts and making new ones. Achieve ambitions through social activities.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be happy and content. Your heart might be bigger than your living room so maybe you shouldn’t try to adopt every stray dog who tries to follow you home. Enthusiasm is your key to success at the workplace.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ve got friends in high places. There’s no need to beat around the bush or to pretend you are something you aren’t. Speak your mind honestly and gather all the support necessary to progress to the next level.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): All you need to do is ask. Big jobs get smaller very quickly when you bring along a pair of helping hands. Innocent flirtations can make time fly by pleasantly so don’t make the mistake of trying to go it alone.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Radical changes won’t solve a problem. There is no need to waste time exploring uncharted waters. You can find a solution through the simplest conventional means. An unlikely ally will come through for you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put your pennies back in your pocket. Beware of a tendency to squander your gains on something that is not logical. A false sense of infallibility may cause you to spend money on items that aren’t quite as advertised.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Earn as you learn. You may be getting the hang of a new technique or routine but don’t spend all the anticipated earnings before the check arrives. The future may look rosy but there could be pitfalls ahead.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Do something constructive rather than complaining about a situation. It is too easy to pay lip service to what you think “should be done.” If you are proactive you will take the initiative to see that it is done yourself.

IF APRIL 27 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your rosy dreams for the future can only be realized if you are willing to work hard to achieve them during the next two to three weeks. You are easily distracted by friends and social obligations and could lose out. July is a great time for inspiring day trips or a romantic vacation. Your obvious friendliness will attract new people. September is the best time to contemplate your financial situation and to make crucial decisions about major purchases and investments. That is when your street smarts and business savvy are at a peak. An opportunity that knocks on your door during November might entail extra responsibilities or stressful conditions. Things may not be as good as they appear so avoid a romantic entanglement. AMX-2017-03-23T18:30:00-04:00
