HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, May 5, 2010: This year, you change directions professionally or spread your wings. Use an innate talent or gift with the arts or people to enhance your situation. If single, you will be noticed. Make wise choices. If attached, involve your sweetie more in your work and community activities. Aquarius can push your buttons.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) •••• Use care with your funds if you want to get the spectacular results that you are capable of. You don’t need a last-minute snafu.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ••• Tension builds, and you seem to demand so much from yourself. On the other hand, so do others. Will you make the grade?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••••• You seem to jump every hurdle, every difficult moment, and come out with a greater understanding. You are in the process of tremendous growth and change. Trust yourself.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) ••••• One-on-one relating helps you gain another’s attention. The fact that this person cannot focus is not a reflection on you but on him or her. Learn to be more dramatic.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) •••• Others can be challenging. Others do you a favor by playing devil’s advocate, whether they intend to or not. Say “thank you” more often.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) •••• You could be plagued by an unusual amount of thought and worry. Maintain a busy pace. Push comes to shove quickly if you are feeling pressured by anything more.
