If Your Birthday Is May 16

Actor Thomas Sangster (1990) shares your birthday. You have an amazing imagination. Sometimes you shock others because you are so colorful and uninhibited. The fact is you simply like to enjoy yourself. You are passionate, yet soft-spoken. This year your success lies with others. People will benefit you. Therefore, make friends and join clubs and organizations. Help others because you will also be helping yourself.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a wonderful day to entertain at home, so invite the gang over because everyone will feel warm and sympathetic to each other. You might also enjoy redecorating your digs, which is another reason you might want to have people over so that you can show off your Aries talents. “Clever me!”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Discussions with siblings, relatives and neighbors will be warm and friendly. Because your ability to converse is gentle and interested in all things artistic, this is also a great day for those of you who write, teach and act. Even your sales pitch will be extra smooth!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You’re pumped today! Because you feel confident and energetic, you might enjoy buying something beautiful that you have been wanting for a while. However, you might also come up with excellent money-making ideas — let’s not forget this. Oh thou clever wordsmith.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a great day for you to schmooze because you feel friendly to everyone. In particular, you will enjoy creative activities, or you will appreciate the creativity of others. You will also be unselfish in your dealings with everyone and will welcome a chance to help someone.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your feelings of sympathy and empathy are so strong that you will not hesitate to put their interests ahead of yours. You’re not being a martyr. You’re simply responding with consideration and generosity to those who need your help. Bravo. Would that there were more in this world like you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A friendship will become very special for you. You feel truly caring for this person. You might also meet someone who is artistic and creative, who in turn, inspires you and possibly, even influences your future goals. Be open to others.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Someone might approach you to ask for your creative input about something — design, layout, furniture arrangement, gardening or even how to mediate something. You are the perfect person for the job right now. Don’t hesitate to speak your peace. (Or your piece, if you have it memorized.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Travel for pleasure will delight if you can possibly swing this. Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened, you will also love to see museums, art galleries, beautiful boutiques, architectural buildings and pristine parks. Enjoy your day!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Others might be generous to you either in a literal way through gifts, goodies and cash, or perhaps they will extend you their time, their advice and an attentive ear. Physical romance will be affectionate, passionate and sensitive. Ooo la la!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Because you are unselfish in your relationships with others, you will deal with people with great compassion and tenderness. Romantic relationships will be the stuff of movies. It might be dreamy and unreal — but at least it’s right now; and now is good.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Others will praise you at work and they might even promote you or give you a raise. At the very least, your relations with co-workers will be mutually sympathetic and supportive. You will also enjoy making where you work look more attractive.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a dreamy day for romance — and it’s definitely Pisces romance. Ah, yes. Enjoy the arts, creative escapes, playful times with children, fun sports and yes, candlelit dinners. New love that begins now will be seductive, alluring but possibly, a temporary fantasy. Hence, the Pisces reference.
