BIRTHDAY GAL: Actress Bonnie Wright was born in London, England, on this day in 1991. This birthday gal has played the role of Ginny Weasley in eight "Harry Potter" movies, three video games and one short. Her other film work includes "Before I Sleep," "After the Dark" and "The Sea." In 2012, Wright wrote and directed the short film "Separate We Come, Separate We Go."
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take advantage of a situation. Someone close could surprise you with offbeat concepts or make a sudden about face. There's no time like the present to remember the adage, "strike while the iron is hot."
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Networking can produce valuable business connections. Good judgment is yours when dealing with others in professional settings, but when dealing with personal problems, it's easy to let emotions interfere with clarity.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put a shoulder to the boulder and you can move at least part of a mountain. Immense drive and determination are the tools to use for success in any important undertaking. Work hard and play even harder.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Go for the gold. Your instincts can be right on the money in any financial or career endeavor. Consider purchasing the proper tools you need to make money rather than using money to buy useless trinkets.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You won't need to boast about your business braininess. Set your lively mind loose on any problem or concern and come up with a perfect solution. Take the time to change things that have outworn their usefulness and start fresh.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): News or fresh information could tempt you to re-evaluate a business deal or rethink a social obligation. Give others the benefit of the doubt, and don't act too quickly, as a bothersome concern will evaporate in a few hours.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It's a good day to ask others for an educated opinion, especially about business and career. Your dissatisfaction with your possessions or place in life may send you off on a search for items of elegance and refinement.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your mind is like a steel trap, but just be sure it doesn't snap shut. Remain open minded and you can go far. You have a knack for finding the drawbacks with design and details, especially when applied to business.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Fame and fortune can be achieved by making important new contacts. Take a break from routines to clear your head and reassess priorities. Win friends by being independent and looking at situations objectively.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dull routine could try even your patience for a few hours, but the thought of doing something more exciting hums in the background. Act on your intuition and buy that special someone a pleasing trinket.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Others in close connection can provide dynamic examples, so play a game of follow the leader for the best results. Join forces with others to shrewdly deal with unsettling changes or to implement business plans.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick to the status quo and avoid the temptation to indulge in frivolous fantasies. You might feel someone is harboring a secret agenda or you may ignore one that exists, but in either case, your judgment could be out of kilter.
IF FEBRUARY 17 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Build an extended family by joining a local club or participating in an organization during the next 6-8 weeks. May is the very best time to make crucial business or financial decisions and changes because your shrewdness and strategies are at their best. Take advantage of golden opportunities to mingle with influential people in the community during July. Your star shines a bit brighter as helpful people give your most important dreams a solid thumbs-up. Your horizons may broaden even more because the fickle finger of fate could send beneficial influences your way.
