HAPPY BIRTH­DAY for Mon­day, May 22, 2017: This year you ’ll get what you want, es­pe­cially if you re­main fo­cused. Dur­ing the first six months of your birth­day year, you might feel luck­ier and more con­tent than in the months that fol­low. Curb a ten­dency to overindulge. If you are sin­gle, you are likely to meet some­one be­fore fall who could be sig­nif­i­cant to your life’s his­tory. You also could choose to keep this pe­riod light and date sev­eral peo­ple; the call is yours. If you are at­tached, the two of you ex­pe­ri­ence a lot of fun and to­geth­er­ness. Let go of daily is­sues and en­joy what lies be­tween you. Aries can be pushy, but re­ally does care about you. ARIES ( March 21-April 19)

Your fiery be­hav­iour seems tem­po­rar­ily tamed by a softer, more car­ing at­ti­tude. When you en­counter a power play, you take a stand and speak your mind. You say what you think in a force­ful way, per­haps more so than you re­al­ize. TAU­RUS ( April 20-May 20)

Take news with a grain of salt. You could feel un­com­fort­able with some­one at a dis­tance or with an as­so­ciate who opens up a new per­spec­tive that might seem strange. Use cau­tion with your spend­ing, as you eas­ily could make a mis­take or go over­board. GEM­INI ( May 21-June 20)

You might feel as if you can’t han­dle a loved one who sud­denly be­comes con­trol­ling. Know that you can ig­nore what this per­son is do­ing. Avoid a power play, and you’ll come out on top. A child or loved one will try to get your at­ten­tion. CAN­CER ( June 21-July 22)

Deal with a boss di­rectly, even if you are con­cerned by his or her at­ti­tude. You don’t need to chal­lenge this per­son, but you can ask ques­tions. You could be swal­low­ing your anger more and more in the next few weeks, if you are not care­ful. LEO ( July 23-Aug. 22)

De­tach and take an overview. You might not agree with some­one’s per­spec­tive. Try to iden­tify with this per­son’s think­ing in

or­der to un­der­stand where he or she is com­ing from. A con­ver­sa­tion might be less dif­fi­cult once you reach an un­der­stand­ing. VIRGO ( Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Deal with loved ones on a one-onone level. As a re­sult, you will gain greater clar­ity about where they are com­ing from. Be open to new pos­si­bil­i­ties, which could come up in­di­rectly in an ar­gu­ment or a con­ver­sa­tion. LI­BRA ( Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

De­fer to oth­ers in or­der to have the time to get some per­sonal work done. Your car­ing at­ti­tude comes through to a part­ner, and it will put a smile on his or her face. A change to your home or to how you struc­ture your life could be a lot dif­fer­ent. SCOR­PIO ( Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Un­der­stand what is go­ing on around you. You could be­lieve that some­one is be­ing in­or­di­nately dif­fi­cult. Could this per­son be re­flect­ing some of your en­ergy? You can be very pow­er­ful, sar­cas­tic and/or de­mand­ing at times. SAGIT­TAR­IUS ( Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your cre­ativ­ity emerges, es­pe­cially if you run into a fi­nan­cial has­sle. Oth­ers ad­mire your re­silience and di­rec­tion. You will want to in­clude a loved one in the con­ver­sa­tion, as this per­son of­ten has many ideas. Refuse to get into a con­trol game. CAPRI­CORN ( Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might not be tap­ping into your usual self-dis­ci­pline, and as a re­sult, you could have a hard time see­ing be­yond the ob­vi­ous. Rather than tame a way­ward mind, deal with what might be dis­tract­ing you. A do­mes­tic mat­ter could need tend­ing. AQUAR­IUS ( Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Com­mu­ni­ca­tion flour­ishes if you flow with the mo­ment. How­ever, some state­ments made by an as­so­ciate could trig­ger you. As a re­sult, you might pull back. The other pos­si­bil­ity is to land in a con­trol game if you are not care­ful. PISCES ( Feb. 19-March 20)

You know there are costs associated with head­ing in an off­beat or un­ex­pected di­rec­tion. Rec­og­nize what is go­ing on with you and an­other per­son. A sit­u­a­tion takes a twist that you might not have an­tic­i­pated. Try not to re­act; in­stead, take a step back.
