For Friday, May 25

Those with birthdays today: Understand when to pull back this year. Often responsibilities could demand too much of you. Emphasize your personal life, and you will be much happier. The whirlwind of life creates pressure and demands. Decide on your priorities and continue, unwavering, down that path. If you are single, the need for closeness and more togetherness defines your choices. Let your hair down. If you are attached, evaluate the plusses and minuses before you make a decision. Your partner needs to be part of that process. The more quality time spent together, the stronger the bond. VIRGO understands more than you think.
