HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, May 2, 2013: This year a sense of great understanding emanates from you. Many people find this energy to be magnetic. Your career and commitments take top priority, so start working on your wish list. If single, you meet people easily. Someone could emerge who might become very special to you. If attached, make sure that your close bond remains a high priority in your life. Go out on an old-fashioned date once in a while. Aquarius is as stubborn as you are, but he or she is more experimental. A baby born today has a sun in Taurus and a moon in Aquarius.
