HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, May 25

This year you display more black-and-white thinking than in previous years. You also tend to weigh problems from opposing views. You seem to go back and forth from being emotional to intellectual. Where has the levelheaded Gemini gone? You are exploring new ideas and broadening your horizon. If you are single, you might attract someone who really likes one side of your personality. As you switch from that side to the other, this person might not be as loving. If you are attached, your transformation could throw your sweetie for a loop. Be more open, and enhance the mutuality between you. SAGITTARIUS understands you better than you do.

(March 21-April 19)

**** Try to get away from it all. A break could be just what the doctor ordered. You know how volatile the last few days have been. Go for a drive to the country, and enjoy the scenery along the way. Visit with an out-of-town friend if you can. Tonight: Finally, you can relax.

(April 20-May 20)

***** Rethink a decision made in haste. You even might wonder why you made that choice in the first place. Confusion and pressure often force others’ involvement. An unexpected change could feel uncomfortable. Find out what’s going on behind the scenes. Tonight: Where the fun is.

(May 21-June 20)

**** Go along with a change of pace. You’ll want to open up to new possibilities after recent events and join friends who are more easygoing than you typically are. You also might decide to let go of stress that could be affecting your well-being. Tonight: Togetherness is the theme.

(June 21-July 22)

*** You will be weighing the pros and cons of getting involved with a certain project. You could realize that you would rather just take some time off. Be a couch potato, if that makes you happy. You might be bored soon enough, but you also will be well rested. Tonight: Indulge yourself.

(July 23-Aug. 22)

***** You’ll re-energize through some flirtation and fun. You know what you need. Find a fun friend and start the process. You might be confused about a situation; release it for now. Over-indulging is OK as long as you know when enough is enough. Tonight: Lead the party!

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

*** You might not realize how tired and/or stressed out you are until you slow down. Decide to do nothing and stay close to home. Whether you take a nap, watch some TV or read a book makes no difference, as long as you are able to relax. Tonight: Happily at home.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

**** You could be overtired and withdrawn by recent events. You will want to catch up on neighborhood news and meet a pal for dinner. Don’t be surprised if, at some point during the day, you nod off. Tonight: Stop acting like Superman or Superwoman — you’re only human.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

**** You might want to see what happens if you put up your feet and relax. Before you know it, you could nod off. You have a desire to escape. Some of you might decide to join a friend or two and party. Some of you will go way overboard. Tonight: Be your wild self.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

***** You feel full of energy and ready to deal with whatever comes your way. Socialize to your heart’s content. Someone might be unclear about your intentions. Listen to news with a grain of salt. Everything can change before you know it. Tonight: Honor spontaneity!

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

**** You might want to move right past a personal issue. Understand that you can’t keep pushing like that. Sometimes you need some time away from thinking about an issue. Give yourself some space. When someone shares a secret, keep it a secret. Tonight: Not to be found.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

***** You are the sign that is associated with friendship, and that is exactly why you need to surround yourself with friends. As a group, you will reinforce what is good about one another. Don’t hesitate to share your grievances with a trusted friend. Tonight: Where the action is.

(Feb. 19-March 20)

**** Think through a decision involving an older friend or loved one. Spend some time with this person, and perhaps get some feedback on what actions you are considering taking. Listen to his or her thoughts carefully, and your opinion could change. Tonight: A must appearance.
