HAPPY BIRTHDAY Tuesday, May 14, 2013:

This year you encounter some touchy situations yet manage to remain held together. Sometimes you get involved in power plays, even when you have no interest in them. Try to figure out why you do this. If you are single, you could meet someone easily and experience the most euphoric beginning. Give yourself plenty of time before committing. If you are attached, as a couple, you have had and continue to have issues over power and control. Accept each other as you are. CANCER seems understanding and nearly always receptive to your energy.

(March 21-April 19)

**** Whether it happens in reality or in your dreams, you’ll awake with an unusual insight and a need to push in a certain direction. You have a lot of power and energy behind you, and you could feel nearly unstoppable. Be more aware of your public image. Tonight: Let the fun begin.


(April 20-May 20)

**** You will be on a mission from the moment you wake up. You could have something you want to say to someone, but this person might not be ready to hear it. Detach, and try to see the whole situation from a different perspective. Tonight: Let yourself relax with friends.


(May 21-June 20)

*** Be more aware of your possessive and materialistic side; otherwise, you could find yourself caught up in a shopping spree that might be nearly impossible to stop. Your sixth sense tells you when to stop, so make it a point to listen carefully to it. Tonight: Indulge a loved one.


(June 21-July 22)

**** You are capable of creating what you want. You could be dealing with a contentious friend right now, or perhaps a demanding and unpredictable situation. Instead of running from fire to fire, stop and center yourself. Decide what your priorities are, then act. Tonight: All smiles.


(July 23-Aug. 22)

** You sense that more is going on behind the scenes than others are willing to acknowledge. Observe more, and get to the root of a problem. The unexpected occurs when you least expect it, but the experience opens you up to be more adventuresome. Tonight: Vanish while you can.


(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

***** You will want to keep your focus and not get distracted. There is something going on that could be deterring you from staying centered. A loved one might have pushed beyond normal limits. Avoid a power play by not playing, and remain unresponsive. Tonight: Ever playful.


(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

*** Pressure builds. It seems as if an authority figure has high expectations for what you can do. Truth be told, you might be focused on a personal issue that is taking up a lot of your time. You could be egging on the other party, but a fight might clear the air. Tonight: Try to stay centered.


(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

**** While others run around in circles, you have the unique ability to stay focused on what you need to do. Though you are an emotional sign, you know when to detach and see the big picture. You will do just that right now. Avoid a power struggle. Tonight: Go for something unusual.


(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

*** You could be trying to do something very differently. Realize that you need to work closely with one person in order to succeed. Don’t allow a situation to intimidate you. Someone could be trying to make you feel insecure. Just be assertive. Tonight: Chat over dinner.


(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

**** Others have the intention of running the show. Aren’t you a little tired of this scenario? You might want to be more involved. Perhaps you need to start your own project and not let others in. No one questions your competency. Tonight: Let your creative genie out of the bottle.


(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

*** Know what you want. You will want to put an extra effort into maintaining your desired pace. Someone might throw a boomerang in your path. Don’t spend too much time wondering why. Just continue as you have been. Tonight: Happy when you finally get home.


(Feb. 19-March 20)

**** You are so creative and dynamic that others can trigger your imagination with a simple comment about the weather or something similar. You might want to stay on top of what is going on. Jot down your thoughts if you’re being hit by too many ideas. Tonight: Fun and games.
