HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, May 13, 2013: This year you aspire to accomplish certain life goals. A friend or group of friends encourages you during the times when you are not sure of your direction. Express your gratitude. If single, you are idealistic about romance. Be careful about putting someone you find appealing on a pedestal, as you would be setting yourself up for disappointment. If attached, the two of you might opt to partake in a special activity that fulfills a long-term dream. Remember to stay grounded. Cancer idealizes your stability. A baby born today has a sun in Taurus and a moon in Cancer if born after 2:57 a.m. Prior to that, the moon is in Gemini.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Tension rises because your vision seems to be in direct conflict with what is really going on.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Someone keeps distracting you. In the middle of a conversation, you could find your mind drifting off to other places.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You might be witnessing the aftermath of a very busy period. For some reason, you can’t seem to complete everything that you feel needs to be done.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Your mind might be drifting off to yonder lands, but realize that you need to be present in the moment. Call on your self-discipline.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Take your time with a decision. At the present moment, you might not be seeing the situation clearly, or perhaps you just don’t have all the information you need and want.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Zero in on what you need to accomplish. You will want to think through a question more thoroughly.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You could be taken aback by someone’s unusual ideas and direction. You might want to proceed in a completely different manner.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • You can let go of a difficult situation if you so desire. Only at that point will you be able to detach sufficiently in order to gain a new perspective.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • Deal with a loved one directly, and know full well that you first must get a personal matter resolved in your mind.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • Defer to others. You might want some time to explore a unique idea, and you’ll want to make some phone calls.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • You could see confusion developing over a money matter. You might be wondering when would be an appropriate time to establish stronger boundaries.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You might not be ready to see a situation in its cold, stark reality. Make it OK to see only part of what is happening, despite feedback from others.
