HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, May 23, 2018:
This year you see many excellent options. You communicate with precision and are fortunate because of that ability. If you are single, now through summer you will meet people with ease. Take your time making the choice of whom to date, as they all will seem like excellent options. If you are attached, you and your sweetie might decide to spruce up your home or buy a new home. The two of you will settle into your domestic life and enjoy the warmth of togetherness. VIRGO can sometimes be demanding.
