HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, May 17, 2013: This year you will curb a tendency to be grumpy or touchy, as that behavior could undermine the quality of your year. You will hit a financial high, but with more money coming in, you also might increase your spending. If single, you have great potential to meet someone you really can communicate with. This relationship could evolve into more, if you choose. If attached, both of you enjoy your time together more and more. Make time for special dates and getaways as a couple. Leo remains a loyal friend. A baby born today has a sun in Taurus and a moon in Leo.
