- Birthday Magic: The Solar Return Chart. I'm planning on doing some of this.
- Satori: "Linked to Taurus today, this is a reminder that you can access all the fairy dust you could ever need right here and now. Dreams aren’t really of the future. They’re of the now. They are happening now. And if they manifest, that will be now as well… when it happens. But you can always benefit from the now of the vision. NOW."
- Georgia Nicols: "Singer/actress/ director Barbra Streisand (1942) shares your birthday today. You are emotionally expressive. It is in your nature to nurture and protect, which makes you an excellent parent. You also want to share your ideas and opinions with others. Although family is important, you value your career as well. Good news! This year might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Make money!" Hah on the parenting. Also amusing is today's Taurus in general: "You might develop a crush on someone older or more experienced today. Others will enjoy a good working relationship with a member of a group or a friend who has more wisdom and experience. This person might advise you in a way that benefits your future goals." Surprise crush? Hah. I don't go for older, so I guess the other one might go.
- Eugenia Last: "Don't sit idle when getting out and sharing what you know with others will help you advance. Travel, learning, and participating in community events will help give you a say in the way things are done. More involvement will also lead you toward a leadership position. Work hard to form solid alliances with influential people. Your numbers are 4, 7, 13, 20, 27, 33, 43. Birthday Baby: You are energetic, willful and stubborn. You are a leader and a doer."
- Marjorie Orr: "IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time requiring perseverance, patience and a cool head. You'll be inclined to fly off the handle or get too restless. Try to keep your head down and work hard even if you feel you are not getting enough recognition. Your rewards will come. One close relationship will be cool rather than passionate but the strong bonds in your life will stay loyal. After mid year you'll be happier at home, more content within yourself."
- NY Post: "Your attitude to material things will change a lot over the coming year. People will count more with you than money and when you focus on family and friends you will find there are ways to be rich that trump everything else. It’s the true meaning of wealth."
- Holiday Mathis/Houston Chronicle: "This year you'll develop a virtue that will enhance everything you experience: patience. It allows you to find easy solutions, keep your eye on the big picture and be an extremely pleasant force in the lives of others. May, August and October bring financial bonuses. You'll win a race in June. Family grows in November. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 11, 19 and 27."
- Daily Horoscopes: "Because your nature is to avoid disputes and arguments at all cost, when you are pushed into solving problems, you can sometimes solve them so quickly that people return to you over and over again to once more solve the dispute or the problem. Now that you know you leave such a good impression, it may be a good time to let people know that you have confidence in their ability to solve difficulties or mysteries and they must take that responsibility upon themselves. You juggle many projects this afternoon and are quite pleased to see that business is improving month by month. There are several things to celebrate today. Your good works bring you special attention on this special day. Work friends have good wishes. Happy birthday!"
- Horoscope.com: "Happy birthday wishes to you! It's a dream-filled year when your greatest challenge may be to not float away on someone else's cloud. The year starts relatively calmly, few outside world intrusions, taking you into a July where too much fun or over-generosity could cause general dissatisfaction with yourself. Stay low-key and true to your own choices. Old friends and old partners could find you again in November. There's more pleasure in this than you'd first suspect. A big dash of unfulfilled desire could take you off track in January. Dream big in big company in early March. End the year brimming with happiness, love, and clever excitement!"

- Las Vegas Review-Journal: "Romantic fantasies could fill your head during the next 4-6 weeks. A new love interest that endures through October or a financial plan that you begin creating now might have potential to enhance your future. Your fun-loving, friendly, gregarious side is emphasized in August, so that is an excellent time for a vacation. Take full advantage of your popularity, but don't make crucial changes that will impact your income, job, or career. Make your best and most successful business moves in late October or early November, when your professional edge is at its sharpest point. In the beginning of the year, buckle down and attend carefully to obligations and requirements. Don't initiate anything of major consequence, make key decisions, or take on additional debt in late January."
- Cafe Astrology: If Today Is Your Birthday: "Born April 24 - Your Year Ahead
Relationships are in high focus this year, and resolving conflicts can be a large theme. Your social life expands in pleasing ways, but it also steadies and you appreciate the reliability and comfort of close friends. Cooperation brings rewards. Watch, however, for impulsiveness and rash emotionally-driven decision making. Impatience can be costly this year... more"
- And the extended birthday forecast... "The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
With the Sun and Mercury joining forces in your Solar Return chart, it can be a busy year in which the exchange of information is especially important and prominent. Fresh and new ideas for creative endeavors can surface. Your social life is more active, and you may be running many errands and taking a lot of short trips.
Your energy levels run high this year, but you should watch for hasty or impetuous behavior. Remember that haste makes waste. This year is likely to be especially busy. You could be rather wilful and impassioned, and it would be best to channel excess energy into healthy physical outlets. Others might find you temperamental. If you suffer from frequent headaches, it is likely that you are not dealing with your own anger or desire to take the lead appropriately. You feel a great need for action, but if you don't know where you're headed, you might take the wrong turn. As long as you channel the excess energy constructively, instead of wasting your time arguing or getting yourself into conflicts with others, you can accomplish much.
With energy channelled positively, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative, stressed, and hell-bent on having your way! The bottom line is a tendency towards obsessive or compulsive behavior. Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration.
Even so, certain elements of your social life and financial life are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year. You may solidify a romantic relationship or become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or more tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships can figure strongly.
Something big is in the works regarding your love life. You'll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love this year. You're also bound to find new ways of making money.
Relationships are in high focus this year, and resolving conflicts can be a large theme. Your social life expands in pleasing ways, but it also steadies and you appreciate the reliability and comfort of close friends. Cooperation brings rewards. Watch, however, for impulsiveness and rash emotionally-driven decision making. Impatience can be costly this year.
2014 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It's generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice - take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
2015 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice - let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side."
