Happy birthday for Friday, May 1, 2009: This year, your family, home and immediate circle gain in significance. You develop a skill for ironing out difficult feelings. Efforts to help others or to work through an emotional issue are not only significant but also successful. If attached, the two of you might want to nestle in. If single, you’ll meet people far more easily in 2010. January on, you could meet someone who’s significant to your life history. Leo serves as an anchor and sometimes an albatross.

Aries (March 21-April 19) •••• Use your ingenuity to complete work and errands. You will want a clear period of time for something else or to start the weekend early. Concern over personal finances might be important to prevent a problem.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) ••• If you can work from home, please do. Understanding takes you to a new level within your home or familial life. Your ability to create a happier environment comes forward.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) ••••• Return calls and schedule meetings early. Your ability to come to terms with a different situation is called upon. Someone needs your help in revising a situation. A friendship will heat up considerably if you allow enough time and attention.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) ••••• How you deal with someone could make a big difference. Listen to another’s words. Understand what must happen with a boss in order to make everyone feel OK. Don’t forget someone’s birthday or special day.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ••••• Continue to seek out new solutions. You could feel as if you cannot do enough for someone you care about. Consider what would be most touching to him or her. You might find you can easily maintain your budget.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••• Be willing to take a back seat and do something very differently. Someone might make quite a few overtures, but you just might not be ready to make a decision. Listen and share; just don’t commit. Think positively.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••••• Don’t do anything halfway. You discover a commitment might be important, at least from someone else. Meetings, friends and groups seem to be more your cup of tea. What starts as a serious meeting could become a party.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) •••• Take a stand if need be. You discover that others respond to your ideas and leadership. With others seeking you out, it could be a very long day. Do only what is absolutely necessary if you want to leave at the right time.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••••• Reach out for others, as only you can. Investigate and look at opportunities that come in from out of left field. Your humor and lightness break a serious mood and remind everyone that the weekend is coming your way.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) •••• Work with individuals rather than many. You will get a better audience. Others hear you loud and clear when you are focused. A child or loved one could be acting up. Know where you need to spend some time this weekend.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••• Your popularity soars, especially if you are willing to lie back. Understand what is happening with a key family member or roommate. He or she might not be trying to be difficult. Think “possibilities.”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ••• Toss in your energy where it counts. You could be tired or disgusted with a situation. Think through a decision that could impact your work. Could you be justifying an expenditure just because you want to make that purchase?
