If Your Birthday Is May 13

TV host/political satirist Stephen Colbert (1964) shares your birthday. You are playful, and you have a great appeal to others. People like you. As a result, you often have influence over others. Good news! This is a year of accumulation, and perhaps one of the most powerful years of your life. You will reap what you have sown because it’s a time of fruition and a good time to buy and sell.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Avoid rash actions, in the next month. By nature, you’re impulsive, but you’ll be particularly aggressive with others because in the next month, your world will be full of silly errors and mistakes. Do what you can to avoid ending up with egg on your face.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

In the month ahead, financial errors and goofy mistakes with money or anything related to your possessions might occur. Meanwhile, despite this propensity, which should normally make you go cautious and slowly — instead, you want to be brash and hasty.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Both Mars and Mercury (which is slowing down and about to go retrograde on the 18th) are in your sign. Tread carefully because you could unwittingly be the proverbial bull in the china shop. Confused situations might trigger aggressive behavior, which is not wise.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

There will be a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes for your sign this month. Do be careful because it could mean that those who do not have your best interests at heart are busy. Yes, this means you have to watch your step. Especially with enemies from the past.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Old friends will be back in your life in the coming month, and you might feel competitive with one of them. Alternatively, you might be physically active with a group. On the positive side, you will be a leader; but on the negative side, you might be too pushy. Be aware of this.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You want to go for baroque in the month ahead because Mars will be at the top of your chart arousing your ambition. However, close by, Mercury will turn retrograde, bringing you into contact with bosses and authority figures from your past. Look your best!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Because you feel passionate and intense, avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues because things will escalate! Instead, focus on travel plans or something to do with publishing, the media medicine and the law.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You will aggressively defend your best interests in the next month if you have to dispute inheritances or anything to do with shared property, taxes and debt. This intense energy will also express itself sexually, even though you will be busy sifting through red tape from the past.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Mars is opposite your sign for the next month testing your patience because you will feel annoyed with others, especially those who are closest to you. Be a sport. Look on the positive side. By July, this influence is gone. Until then, patience is your best ally.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your work routine will be under assault in the month ahead because of silly errors, delays, cancelled meetings and minor confusions that frustrate you. Be careful not to jump the gun because you are keen to accomplish and ready to delegate.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Although home and family issues are a top priority for you at this time, past issues related to children and possibly old flames will demand your attention. Competitive sports will have your attention in the month ahead as well. Go team go!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Many of you are tackling repairs and renovating or redecorating projects at home in the next month. Relatives will be camped on your doorstep and hopefully, they will pick up a paintbrush and dig in. Do what you can to keep peace in the family.
