HAPPY BIRTHDAY Tuesday, May 28, 2013:

This year you go back and forth between having an avant-garde mindset to a very conventional way of thinking. You can’t be put in a box — you are a free thinker. Others enjoy seeing how you work with concepts and apply them to your life. If you are single, you could form a close bond with a foreigner or someone who is very different from you. You’ll like learning about this person’s culture and ways. If you are attached, the two of you often speak about a dream trip; start planning it this year. AQUARIUS piques your interest.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES

(March 21-April 19)

**** Your anger and frustration seem to bubble up. After listening to someone’s needs, you could feel put off. Do not respond if following through makes you uncomfortable. Make calls and reach out to a neighbor or sibling. Good news heads your way. Tonight: Hang out.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20)

***** You will discover what is possible if you relax and become more forthcoming. Your appraisal of a personal matter encourages you to take a leap of faith. Be sure to do much-needed research. By afternoon, you’ll feel as though it is time to take action. Tonight: Make it easy.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20)

**** Engage in a conversation with a partner. You might not come to an agreement easily. Take an overview and see what facts you are missing. Get to the bottom of a problem by taking in the whole picture. Suddenly, you could see the right path to take. Tonight: Use your imagination.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22)

**** Others let you know what they want. The problem might be that you are not sure of your choice yet. In some way, you could feel as if someone is running right over you. Share your feelings with this person. Tonight: Chat with a partner or dear friend. Speak your mind.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22)

*** You could be taken aback by someone’s efforts. You also might find that you are angry or frustrated with an older friend or boss. Why not address the issue directly? This person’s response could take you by surprise. Be prepared. Tonight: In the thick of a situation.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

**** Have a talk with someone you respect, especially if this person is acting as if he or she is peeved. There probably is a good reason for this behavior. You won’t be able to work anything out until you know the problem. Count on your ingenuity. Tonight: Burn the midnight oil.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

**** You could view an important matter very differently from a partner. Listen to what this person shares. He or she means exactly what he or she says. You will have to be very charming and nurturing to surf this wave and come out unscathed. Tonight: You know what is best.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

**** Sometimes you push so hard to have your way that it is difficult to come to terms with a different point of view. Try to listen more to a key person in your life. You both will be a lot happier as a result. Consider taking a walk in order to clear your mind. Tonight: At home.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

*** You might be finalizing some details regarding a purchase or balancing your finances. You will perk up considerably in the afternoon. Make calls, schedule meetings and — most importantly — catch up on a friend’s news. Tonight: Run errands on the way home.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

**** You might want to rearrange your schedule in order to make time for an important conversation in the morning. Understand where others are coming from, and listen to their logic. Tempers run high, and you can do little to change what is going on. Tonight: At a favorite haunt.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

*** You could be dragging in the morning and feel unsure as to which way you want to go. Alleviate a problem by talking it out; otherwise, you could be walking on eggshells. You have a greater chance of clearing the issue later in the day. Tonight: Make yourself happy, first.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20)

**** Zero in on your priorities. You could be surprised by how strong-willed you need to be in order to get your point across. Later, you might want to spend some quiet time dealing with a project or going over this conversation in your head. Tonight: Catch some extra zzz’s.
