HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, May 18, 2018: This year you will see a big difference if you keep your long-term goals in mind. One of your closest friends will inspire you often. Indulge others rather than criticize them. If you are single, you will attract quite a few potential suitors during the next six months. Some of you might want to play the field, but many of you seem ready to settle down. If you are attached, you will want to cheer up your sweetie, as he or she might be somewhat withdrawn. Understand that your loved one could be going through his or her share of changes. Cancer draws you in.
