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.
