Happy birthday for Thursday, May 7, 2015: This year you open up to many challenges, which ultimately will turn into exciting opportunities. You learn to pull back and keep your eye on the big picture when deciding what is best for you. Though you can be very giving, you also must remember to put yourself first more often. Travel could play a substantial role in your year. If you are single, you could meet someone quite dynamic. Depending on how you feel, this bond could become long term. If you are attached, the two of you often delight in going away together where you will not be distracted by your day-to-day life. Capricorn is more reluctant to try new experiences than you are.
