BIRTHDAY GUY: Actor Gerard Butler was born in Paisley, Scotland on this day in 1969. This birthday guy has starred in such movies as "London Has Fallen," "Gods of Egypt," and "Law Abiding Citizen," as well as voicing the role of Stoick in the "How to Train Your Dragon" franchise. Next up for Butler will be reprising the role of Mike Banning for a third time in the upcoming 2018 sequel called "Angel Has Fallen."
ARIES (Mar 21-Apr. 19): Little things mean a lot. It will be your careful attention to the details that will be the difference between a project being a triumph or just so-so. No matter what you choose to do you will most likely give it an artistic flair.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Rally others to your cause. Others will be more likely to follow your lead if you make it worth their while through incentives and benefits. Bolster someone's confidence with encouragement as being critical could prove caustic.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Let the good times roll. Now is the time to accomplish as much as possible while energy and enthusiasm is running high. Surround yourself with those who are upbeat and positive and there will be no limit to what you can get done.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Speak your mind. Being open and honest in conversations will get others to share their thoughts and ideas that may prove valuable and insightful. You could shine out in intimate situations and charm a new acquaintance.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Two heads are better than one. Approach difficult problems logically but it could be someone else's fresh perspective that sheds light on the issue. Maintain a highly disciplined approach to finances and stick to it for the foreseeable future.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Obstacles are meant to be overcome. Don't get discouraged if something is keeping you from reaching your goals as a solution or shortcut can easily be found. Go with your gut instinct to reach hard decisions quickly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22.): Put excess energy to good use. Physical outlets such as a trip to the gym, yoga or just a brisk walk can help keep body and mind in tune. You may find yourself the center of attention with a romantic interest after the sun goes down.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be a beacon of sweetness and light. Quell the urge to make snide comments or insults when someone gets on your nerves and just flash a friendly smile. A positive attitude and a bright demeanor will rub off on those around you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Know your limits. Talk it over with a friend or loved one before starting something new and you may find that you are getting in over your head. There's no shame in admitting that something is beyond your means or skill.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Think outside the box. Conventional wisdom may not work for you while abstract ideas could be just what the doctor ordered. A love interest could find your off the wall approach to things interesting and fun, for today at least.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Tackle your to-do list head on and resolve to get as much done as you can while you are full of vim and vigor. Approaching problems from a different point of view could be enlightening.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Don't waste inspiration. If something gets your creative juices flowing, then use it to motivate you into taking action and doing something constructive. Your energies may wane later so get going while the going is good.
IF NOVEMBER 13 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You may feel more popular and sociable during the upcoming five to six weeks. This is an excellent time to network and add new friends to your social media lists. You may be physically energized after the first of the year, making it a good time to begin an exercise program or join a gym. In late January, and early February, you could be easily distracted by romantic fantasies and overestimate your abilities. Enjoy optimism and peace of mind, but wait until April when you are more down to earth to make major decisions and changes or to launch crucial endeavors. Your negotiation skills and shrewdness with business matters is at its best during July.
