If Your Birthday Is May 5

Singer Adele (1988) shares your birthday. People often ask you for advice. This is because you are observant and informed. In turn, you are happy to teach and inform others, and you do enjoy an audience. This year something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new because you are beginning a new nine-year cycle. This is a good year to travel.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you’re humming, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” Yesterday was a great day to start your week off but today, hmmm, things are a bit grim. Traffic snarls, delays, obstructions plus encounters with difficult people will create some challenges. Just cope as best you can.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Always remember that you are the financial wizard of the zodiac. However, today this might not help you much because dealings with about inheritances, banking matters, insurance issues and shared property are stalled in the water. People are not cooperative.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Because this is a poor day to deal with others (especially friends and partners) don’t push the envelope. In fact, pull in your reins. Pessimism, negativity and criticism are what you will encounter whenever you suggest something. Oh well, the road of true anything never runs smooth.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Tread carefully when dealing with co-workers because people are critical and pessimistic. Instead of seeing why something can be done, they are too quick to point out why it cannot be done. In addition to which, an element of confusion clouds everything as well. Oy vey.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Romance is in the toilet. Social plans might be changed or canceled because something looks like a bummer when it comes to fun activities, including sports. Children might be an increased burden. Be careful about financial speculation because all is not as it seems.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Family discussions are discouraging because someone in a position of authority is not on board. Furthermore, not only are you encountering obstacles and negativity, there is also some genuine confusion about everything. To stay safe, keep things simple and low key.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

It’s easy to fall into negative thinking because things appear to look bleak. Furthermore, others might challenge or block you, especially teachers. Travel restrictions might also impede your progress. But in the bigger scheme of things, this is minor. Small potatoes, really.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Something to do with your financial situation or possibly, something that you own, might depress you. Why is there always so much month left at the end of the money? Don’t let this get you down because ironically, tomorrow is a great day! Would I kid you?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today the Moon is in your sign lined up with stern Saturn opposite Mercury. This means you will put duty and responsibilities first. However, you might also feel cautious to the point of feeling inadequate or tongue-tied. Don’t worry — tomorrow is a fabulous day.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today you feel alone or off from others. Who knows? You might be the person who is erecting barriers and fences? Nevertheless, many people feel this way today, so you are not alone. Don’t worry. Tomorrow is a lovely day. Don’t make a big issue about anything at work.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Increased responsibilities with children are likely. Furthermore, someone older or more experienced might be critical of you for some reason. (Dontcha love it?) Refrain from overreacting or making a sarcastic come back because all of this caca is temporary. Tomorrow is a great day!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a poor day to ask authority figures for permission or approval for anything. Their reply will likely be, “Talk to the hand.” People are hung up on rules, duties and responsibilities. No leniency. No flexibility. Fortunately, tomorrow is a fabulous day!
