Today’s Birthday (05/10/12)

 Things are lining up for you this year. Income could rise after June (and expenses, too, so budget for it). But it’s the people who share your time and space that matter. A lifetime duty could get made or strengthened.

To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today is a 7 — There’s lots more money coming in (and going out). Use your creativity to make it work to your benefit. Continue to build with what you’ve got. Good news comes from far away.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today is an 8 — It’s an excellent time for romance … an afternoon date, perhaps? Others believe you can succeed. You’re attracting the attention of an important person.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Today is a 7 — Choose your path. Your prospects are excellent. There are offers pouring in, as is romance. Stay alert, flexible and keep track. The more you finish, the better.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Today is an 8 — Adjust schedules with your partner. Someone questions your judgment. That’s okay. Notice financial advice from an authority figure.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today is a 9 — There’s great news financially. You may be tempted to take a break, but now’s not the time to slow down. Acknowledge your partnerships, and run a question by a smart but distant friend.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today is an 8 — Conflicting information could make it difficult to decide. Access your creative side by drawing, painting or doodling. A dream helps you figure it out.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today is a 6 — Offer your peacemaking skills. Dig and uncover a surprise. Work with the resources at hand to improve your abode and your neighborhood.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today is a 9 — It’s not a good time to travel. Better stay at home with family or visit friends close by. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. A “no” is at least an answer.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today is a 9 — You may encounter unexpected expenses. No matter how unfair they may seem, try to minimize the damage and make the best of it.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today is a 9 — Find inspiration in the most unusual places. Create something beautiful from the chaos. Worrying about the money doesn’t help.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today is a 6 — If you lose your balance, get back on the horse and ride to your own personal victory. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it made you a better person.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today is a 7 — You’re a master at handling chaos today, but it will require extra imagination and organization. Failure could lead to new opportunities for income.
