HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, May 11, 2017: This year others find you challenging, as you express your feelings clearly and with depth. Once you finish a conversation, people better understand your logic. If you are single, you mix intensity with a love of adventure, making you especially desirable. In the next two years, you will grow and change even more. If you are attached, the two of you grow closer together as you enter a new phase of your relationship. Sagittarius knows how to trigger a strong reaction from you.
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) You might get into a difficult discussion in the morning, which is likely to leave you feeling dissatisfied. Later in the day, you will detach and see a personal situation differently. You might even start to chuckle at everything that went down.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Someone has a way of stepping on you or demanding that you agree with him or her. If you feel uncomfortable, say so. A loved one comes through for you, though you might not appreciate this interference.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Focus on completing as much as you can. You could be overwhelmed by everything. Keep smiling, and refuse to become uptight. A smile will make a big difference to a friend or loved one.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) You could be seeing a situation differently from how those around you see it. What started out as a creative enterprise quickly might become a burden. Focus on the job and on getting the necessary work done. Speak to a friend if you’re feeling off.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could feel pressured about a family issue as well as a professional matter. Weigh the pros and cons of each situation, and assess what needs to happen. A loved one’s ideas might not be as helpful as he or she seems to believe they are.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Conversations could feel out of whack no matter what words you choose. Your creativity emerges when dealing with an imaginative associate or loved one. Find out what a child desires and make it your pleasure to give it to him or her.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Your ability to understand others comes through one more time. Curb a tendency to be possessive or demanding. If you feel insecure, look around and recognize how important you are to others and how cared for you really are.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You smile, even with the confusing energy of the Full Moon around you. In fact, your popularity could be enhanced by this lunar activity. Understand that those in a frantic or touchy mood are likely to seek you out; they need your advice.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) The day gets better as it goes on. Understand what is happening around you. Your imagination will carry you through some rough patches, but only if you can understand where others are coming from. Be careful. You could be accidentprone.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your vision of what might be workable could be disrupted by the fact that someone has given you false information. Your instincts usually guide you, but you would be best off not following your intuitive hunches today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Accept responsibilities and clear them out as quickly as possible. The afternoon presents a wonderful opportunity to get to know someone better. A budding friendship could be developing between you. Some of you will opt to network later in the day.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Reach out to a loved one who can be extremely fussy. Both of you could be suppressing your feelings at the moment; therefore, what you believe is irritating you might not be the real issue. Listen to feedback, even if you do not agree.
