Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For May 04, 2020

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The cause of your current emotional malaise is identified. See if you can make a minor change that will yield a major gain. Don't waffle.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Giving someone precisely what he or she needs, no strings attached, will benefit you as well -- in ways you have not foreseen.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may think you need no guidance or advice today, but the fact is that one or two of your skills would improve if you accepted such help.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll get more bang for your buck today by taking the direct approach. Don't be too clever, either, or your efforts will backfire.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Trying to get something done without being noticed today is like trying to catch a fish without getting wet: It's possible but not very likely!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to set someone straight today about what it is you will and will not do -- and how much it will cost. Don't sell yourself short.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The waiting game proves more advantageous to you today than to someone who is also eager for the chance to shine. You're likely more ready.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may not understand every nuance of what you are told today, but the central issue will be clear, surely. You must act accordingly!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A warning comes your way today that you're likely to discount at first -- but a series of seeming coincidences serves to change your mind.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What goes around comes around today, and you can use this basic truth to your advantage. You know what may happen better than a rival.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It's time to get down to business with someone who, so far, has been all talk and no action. Today is the day you can get things started.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You needn't sugarcoat any news you have to impart today; tell it like it is, and trust that those around you will react in a suitable manner.
