By Tamia Banks

A baby born today has a Sun in Taurus and a Moon in Leo until 1:35 a.m., when the Moon enters Virgo.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, May 2, 2020:
Observant and productive, you will spend the year perfecting a masterpiece of your own. Opportunities to buy or sell property will also come to you. You’ll make a successful impact on others if you remain tactful. If single, you prefer continuing to spend your valuable time alone. If attached, you both enjoy luxuriating in the warmth of the life you have built together. VIRGO is as smart as you, but in a different way.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

This is, of course, an auspicious time for home-based businesses and, today, also those who deal with homes and property. Unique and visionary ideas take root as long as you can curb impatience or bossiness. Tonight: Read between the lines.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

The urge to speculate or take a chance might seem powerful today. Use caution, however, where money is concerned, lest losses occur. Dealings with children are also favored, and pregnancies are likely. Tonight: You can’t help but impress others now.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Today you know where you stand in terms of your future domestic life. A situation that might have had you teeter-tottering becomes more easily resolvable. Take time to mull over decisions, as thoughts are cloudy and your mind is a bit restless. Tonight: Early bedtime.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Your local scene will be the focus today. Love might be found just around the corner. Let siblings, neighbors, or friends fix you up. You could meet an intriguing, intelligent newcomer with a worldly bent. This person could broaden your horizons considerably. Tonight: Celebrate.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today brings exciting opportunities on the financial front. Although much money might be spent, it’s just as possible that a large sum comes your way. Those in teaching, publishing or travel-related occupations fare best. Tonight: Listen to a friend’s qualms about a personal matter.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will want to have it all today, but choose wisely, especially if it’s a love or money choice. Do not be surprised if an old love pops back into your life, forcing you to reexamine motives and values. Tonight: As you like it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You want time for solitary pursuits today. You will not feel lonely but replenished by this. Sleep, meditate, or begin work on a secret project in your spare time, just so long as you devote energy to personal needs. Tonight: Get a good night’s sleep.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Power struggles among friends or within groups could mar important relationships. Others might be argumentative. You will feel out of sorts and restless. Do not let anyone pressure you. Resentment will surely build. Tonight: Not to be found. You take the night off.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You certainly will not be bored today, as new ideas become action. Your only problem might be in biting off more than you can chew, as multiple plans come to fruition all at once. Your mate and job vie for your attention. Tonight: Celebrate.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A fresh outlook and new attitude are found today through higher thought processes. Friends cheer you with uplifting ideas, and physical energy is high. Those of you who are creative do outstanding work now — work that even you cannot criticize. Tonight: Slow down.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

While opportunities for you or your partner to earn extra money are plentiful, the money might disappear just as quickly. It is not the day to take risks of any kind. Things are not as they seem — even yesterday. Tonight: Talk it through patiently.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Although a friend’s romantic difficulties somehow benefit you, be cautious about making commitments. Have alternate social plans made in case of change, which is likely today. Associates just cannot seem to make up their minds. Tonight: Add more fun to the moment.
