The Washington Post Sunday - - DIVERSIONS - BY JAC­QUE­LINE BI­GAR

HAPPY BIRTH­DAY | May 14: This year you find that al­most ev­ery­thing works out for you, as long as you can tap into your pa­tience. Oth­ers ad­mire your abil­ity to play the waiting game with lit­tle to no ef­fort. If you are sin­gle, this is a year to be re­mem­bered as far as your love life is con­cerned. You also might have a se­cret ad­mirer. If you are at­tached, the two of you en­joy a very easy­go­ing and car­ing re­la­tion­ship. Do not un­der­es­ti­mate the im­por­tance of hav­ing some rest­ful, quiet times to­gether. Capri­corn can be a stub­born taskmas­ter. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might have a change of plans, where you will need to take on more re­spon­si­bil­ity. All eyes look to you as you make fast de­ci­sions and cause oth­ers to adapt their plans ac­cord­ingly. Don’t for­get to make a call to a friend whom you rarely get to see. TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20) News comes in from some­one at a dis­tance. You could be taken aback by ev­ery­thing you have to do. Per­haps you haven’t taken oth­ers’ needs as se­ri­ously as you should have. Be aware of what needs to hap­pen to­day, and clear it out. GEM­INI (May 21-June 20) One-on-one re­lat­ing takes over and pushes you in a whole new di­rec­tion. You might won­der how to get a loved one to agree that you have a good idea and want to join in. Have this dis­cus­sion in a spe­cial spot, per­haps over brunch. CANCER (June 21-July 22) De­fer to oth­ers. You of­ten de­cide to ex­hibit this be­hav­ior so that some­one else can ex­press his or her feel­ings and in­ter­ests. It also is eas­ier to keep the peace that way. An in­vi­ta­tion can­not be turned down; you ab­so­lutely want to join in. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may want to clear out an er­rand or two. You will feel bet­ter once you carry out this chore or project. Once you are clear of this re­spon­si­bil­ity, you will feel free. The plans you make as a re­sult could be ex­cit­ing. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your play­ful­ness comes out with a child or new friend. You might think that you are be­ing too silly or spon­ta­neous. Un­der­stand that it is bet­ter to let go and let your in­ner child emerge. A loved one adores it when you ex­press your true self. LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might want to con­sider your al­ter­na­tives. Fam­ily mat­ters and per­sonal is­sues come out early in the day. The tim­ing is per­fect to re­solve a prob­lem that con­tin­ues to arise. A loved one could be quite un­pre­dictable, which will add to the fun of the mo­ment. SCOR­PIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your conversations with oth­ers seem to have a very se­ri­ous tone. You might won­der what is go­ing on with a dear friend or neigh­bor. Get­ting this per­son to open up could be close to im­pos­si­ble. Set the scene and make sure this per­son can re­lax around you. SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You have been very busy run­ning around as of late. You’ll need to set­tle in and look at the costs of this weekend. Did you go over­board with your spend­ing? If so, you might want to con­sider up­dat­ing your bud­get. CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might find that to­day is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to wind down and re­lax. A child or loved one who is quite ex­pres­sive will join you. You can’t help but be de­lighted. Don’t worry about the time, just en­joy your­self to the max. Try not to go over­board. AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Lis­ten care­fully to what is be­ing shared. Rec­og­nize the im­por­tance of keep­ing this con­ver­sa­tion hush­hush. Re­mind the other party of the role of dis­cre­tion in this par­tic­u­lar sit­u­a­tion. Take some much-needed per­sonal time later in the day. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You can’t seem to say “no” to an in­vi­ta­tion from your friends. Once you meet up, you will be thrilled to be vis­it­ing with this par­tic­u­lar group of peo­ple. Do what­ever comes nat­u­rally. It ap­pears as if you can do no wrong.
