HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, May 4, 2012: This year you could evoke some dynamic reactions as you alternate between being fair and logical and being rigid and demanding. Incorporate all the above-mentioned traits in your interactions, and your relationships will benefit. If single, you might misread a new friend. If attached, the two of you need to be aware of a tendency to get stuck in your individual thought processes. Scorpio can be challenging. A baby born today has a sun in Taurus and a moon in Libra if born before 7:20 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Scorpio.
