HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, May 20, 2011: This year, frequently evaluate and consider your options. Your circle of friends is supportive, though one person could be unusually insightful. Value that immediate circle. If married or partnered, your significant other might be uncomfortable with your strong set of friends. You might need to work on keeping the situation less tense. If single, take your time integrating a new person into your circle of friends. Capricorn presents a very different point of view. A baby born today is a Taurus Sun and a Moon in Capricorn.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You could wake up feeling somewhat tired. Your dream life is active. Keep your priorities out in front, or you could be easily derailed otherwise.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Be willing to walk in another person’s shoes. You’ll see a situation far differently as a result. Through identifying and sharing a common experience, you can work better with this person.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • You might feel dwarfed – a rare experience for you. Know what is going on. Be willing to extend yourself more.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • So much is happening that you could be overwhelmed. Don’t lose sight of what you want and expect out of a situation. A meeting could be significant today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Get into a project. Energy and ideas simply flow between you and another person. If you want to let go of a problem or a negative situation, you can.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Remain more playful and direct in your dealings. How you view a child or new love interest could be subject to change, but most likely in a positive manner.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You could be a bit depressed or off. How you handle a personal matter in your present mood versus when you are more upbeat could be most different.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • Keep talking through an issue. Be willing to brainstorm with others. Your sense of humor emerges when dealing with a close friend.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Curb a need to be possessive or to demand your way. This type of behavior won’t help a situation; it will only make it more complicated.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • You could be more vulnerable than you realize. You might want to change directions. A brainstorming situation might be a necessity.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Others might find you to be distant, but in reality you are simply working through a lot of feelings and re-evaluating. The status quo might not be working for you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Meetings could be inordinately significant. Someone might have an unusual insight. Know what you are dealing with before you move to an agreement.
