HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, May 19, 2013: This year you will be very fortunate with matters involving money and success. You naturally grow and expand your thinking. The more open you are, the easier the year will be for you. If single, you could meet someone very different, possibly even from another culture. You will enjoy relating to this person. You need to decide how far you will permit this bond to evolve. If attached, the two of you might opt to take that special vacation you often speak of. Virgo can be a lot of fun. A baby born today has a sun in Taurus and a moon in Virgo.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You might hear from someone you respect. You could feel as if you have too much happening around you, as there are so many options to choose from.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You have a lot happening very quickly with a child, partner or potential sweetie. You will need to rethink how you handle a situation that comes in from out of left field.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Your optimism and happy attitude carry you through the day. Others find your mood contagious, and they feed off it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You might feel pressured by all of the requests coming in, but you will manage to respond to nearly all of them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Be aware of what you might have offered in a simple gesture, as someone could be counting on it. Disappointing this person will have certain ramifications.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You naturally know which way to turn. Be spontaneous, and you will note that everything comes up smelling like roses.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • Opt to spend some time with a loved one whom you don’t often get to see. It will strengthen the bond of the relationship even more, and you’ll be happier as a result.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Touch base with a loved one at a distance. Keep your focus on what is important to you in the long run. You have an opportunity to zero in on something you have wanted for a while, and it just might involve this
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • You might want to reconsider your plans as they could break the budget. For instance, you might want to pick up the tab for several people.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Go with a suggestion that places you far away from your normal activities. Take a drive in the country, or visit a place that you have wanted to explore.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • A partner understands a lot more than you are sharing. You can forget about pulling the wool over this person’s eyes – it can’t be done.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Even if you had plans to be alone, you can be sure that others will not allow this to happen. Your efforts make a difference.
