HOROSCOPE

A lack of passion is your greatest enemy and embracing expression is your greatest ally. Take the time to explore different avenues of expression, such as the simplicity of making someone laugh, which was the interest of Bob Hope, who was also born on May 29th. It may even be in your interest to find a cause to stand for, much like John F. Kennedy, another one of your birthday twins. Your gifts for communication may also take you into careers such as writing, education, advertising or pubic relations. Remember that your mental power will give you the chance for success in any field you choose to explore.
