HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, May 5, 2012: This year you discover how very full your life could be. You often are juggling many different concerns. Others clearly are drawn to you. If single, your charisma could be a problem, as you have too many potential suitors to choose from. If attached, make it OK for the two of you to pursue some interests separately. Scorpio certainly knows how to present the other side. A baby born today has a sun in Taurus and a moon in Scorpio.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Relate directly to a loved one or child. You might take off together to hike or go to a flea market.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • The full moon highlights your relationships. You might be pushed to the max when dealing with others. Establish limits, but at the same time detach if possible.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Whether you have a spring project to do or are looking at a fun time of playing games, there is an intensity that runs through your day.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You might see a situation a lot differently if you permit greater fluidity and change. Be aware of a tendency right now to become a bit rigid.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Let go of rigidity, and honor a better sense of self. You might not want to go far or change what you are doing. Others might push and prod you to get a certain response.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Return calls and think carefully when putting plans together. You might not see a situation in the same way as someone who could make a big deal out of the same issue.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Curb a need to be possessive or have your way. The response you receive could be equal to your own initial implicit demand.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • Others respond to your requests – for now. You’ll seize the moment, but you have no idea what the outcome will be.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Know when you are having an off day, and make it a point to kick back. A loved one has a strong reaction to the momentary you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • Friends encourage you to follow their footsteps regarding plans. Sometimes you need to let go and be fancy-free. This moment in time is a good example.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Check in with an older relative or friend. He or she will appreciate all the attention. A natural rigidity seems to occur today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Keep reaching out for someone at a distance. If you cannot meet halfway in the near future, plan a get-together as soon as possible.
