HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, May 18, 2012: This year you seem more integrated into the social scene than before. Your personality emerges even more and draws many special people toward you. If single, the world is your oyster. If attached, curb a tendency to be a little too me-oriented. Your partner needs your time and attention. You are grounded, practical and charismatic this year. Your creativity weaves in and out of issues, plans and important relationships. Use this time well. Don’t go to battle with a fellow Taurus. He or she is as willful as you are. A baby born today has a sun and moon in Taurus all day long.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You become more aware of what you have to offer. Be sure to maintain your needs as well. Your budget could become an area for scrutiny.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You smile, and others cannot help but respond. Do you have your wish list nearby? If so, you might want to zero in on a coveted item.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • A lot might be going on around you, especially in your community or workplace. You might only be seeing one facet of a situation.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You might have difficulty staying anchored. A key person in your life might not mean to be so vague – he or she is just hard to pin down to get answers.
