Happy birthday for Saturday, May 2, 2009: This year, prioritize, as much will drop on your plate. Often there is confusion about what you must get done as opposed to what should get done. You will feel as if you are doing a juggling act. Details count. Don’t take any shortcuts. If single, you will meet people with ease. That special person could appear by your next birthday. If attached, the two of you need to focus on a long-term goal. Start working on making it real. Virgo adds to the fun and often makes you smile.

Aries (March 21-April 19) •••• Use the daylight hours for a lighter or more playful activity than your norm. Tap into your imagination. If you are artistic and create your life’s masterpiece, you might want to focus, as your creativity is brewing.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) ••• Family members let you know how much they enjoy your company. Take time for those who are closest to your heart and/or hearth. Though you might feel like there is no limit to over-indulgence, you still might need to direct your energy differently later today.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) ••••• Invite a loved one or roommate out for brunch or some other fun get-together. Everyone will be happy just swapping ideas and catching up on news, sharing gossip. Maybe going to the movies fits the bill.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) •••• Do some price comparison, and decide what is the best quality buy per dollar. If you are looking for a fun item, enjoy. Worry less about others’ judgments. Let go of negative feelings like jealousy or possessiveness.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ••••• Forget any thought of a quiet few days, afternoons or even hours. That is what your popularity causes. Try to squeeze in all the people and invitations. Confirm a get-together, as misunderstandings happen out of the blue.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••• If you feel like closing your door and ignoring the world around you, do so in the daylight hours. Finish off errands and focus on completion and/or naps. Consider taking a walk or getting a little exercise.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••••• Socialize to your heart’s content. You might have a lot of ground to cover and so many friends to visit. Enjoy yourself. Slow down and refuse to push yourself or drive yourself to distraction. Perhaps a quality visit is more important.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••• Whether you are going to work or handling some other key situation, others look up to you. Still, understand that enough is enough and liven up plans late afternoon and tomorrow. You need some fun time too.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••••• Take off for a day trip. Whether by car or public transportation, you can opt for an adventure or something different. Explore an art show or a historical area. Listen to your instincts in a conversation that might not be totally connecting.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) •••• One key person absolutely wants and needs your time. The intensity builds as the two of you share more and more. In some way, it is as if you can see no one but each other. Help each other relax.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) •••• Others seek you out. Make it easy to make plans and just go with others’ preferred choice, even if it is not yours. There will be other days and times. Schedule special time with one person.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ••• Complete work or a project. You could be surprised by how much you accomplish if you focus. Consider a spontaneous get-together at your place. Pick up the phone and start making plans. Allow a friend to pitch in.
