BIRTHDAY GAL: Singer Michelle Branch was born in Sedona, Ariz., on this day in 1983. This birthday gal has released three platinum-selling albums as a solo artist and earned a Grammy nomination as half of the country duo The Wreckers. She also collaborated with rock icon Carlos Santana for the Grammy-winning hit single "The Game of Love" in 2002. This young chanteuse received plenty of exposure when she appeared on the TV series "One Tree Hill" and performed on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Charmed."

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Awaken to the fact that you must be adaptable. Mold actions to please those with definite opinions to gain their approval. A casual friend could be seen in a more romantic light.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Still waters do run deep. Those you love could have hidden depths and it is a delightful time to plumb them. Don't ignore opportunities or offers that drop in your lap from out of the blue.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The urge to keep up with the Joneses could take up every waking moment, if you let it. Deep down you simply want attention and approval; you need others to recognize your good intentions.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Infect others with happiness. You need appreciation, but could be reluctant to seek it. Be confident, as excessive shyness can keep you from spreading sunshine wherever you go.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Let yourself go a little; you'll learn that people will appreciate a little self-confidence and exuberance. There are no chains holding you back from exploring certain attractive alternatives.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Act on your hunches. This may mean making yourself aware of the changes going on around you and anticipating a change in status. A growing closeness becomes evident in a relationship.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Show your true colors. Find ways to improve and enhance the atmosphere. Your ability to be understanding and blend in with a crowd allows others a chance to act naturally in your presence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't merely concentrate on material things. A special someone might prefer to stay unnoticed in the background and be overlooked. You may sense a psychic link with loved ones.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Choose your own destiny. Sometimes any change is seen as "better," but it's time to decide just what "better" means. A close companion can provide a good sounding board.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You never need to lower your standards. However, you might find it advantageous to alter them. Expect the best from others, but be willing to be generous about what "the best" means.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): People often believe what they can't prove. Your sensitivity to atmosphere and surroundings gives you a reliable sixth sense where people and relationships are concerned.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You want and need excitement and intellectual stimulation. There is an urge to tweak things until they work better even if that means upsetting certain apple carts. Focus on being creative.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Maintain your beliefs and have faith in the future during the year ahead. Your fine work ethic will win you the respect and attention you deserve. Find ways to improve yourself through health oriented exercise, diet - or by taking a class this summer. You can put the things you learn to good use in November or January when your efforts could win you a chance to take a step forward and gain additional status or honors. Don't be overly confident next February when you could take too large a gamble. Wait until April when your judgment is better to start any crucial plan or project.
