By Mariana Rivas

A baby born today has a Sun in Taurus and a Moon in Scorpio if born before 11:19 a.m. (ET). Afterward, the Moon will be in Sagittarius.

Happy birthday for Tuesday May 1, 2018:
This year you seem to get past many of your issues because of a willingness to relate intensely and take smart risks. You will gain insight as a result, and also put a problem or two to bed. If you are single, you will attract a different type of person than usual. Take your time getting to know this person before committing. If you are attached, the two of you become much closer, as you are more willing to let your feelings be known. Your vulnerability appeals to your sweetie; he or she finds you absolutely charming. SAGITTARIUS helps you see the big picture when you seem confused.
