Horoscopes for May 1, 2014

From page A9 | May 01, 2014 |

Happy May Day, also known as Beltane, the Gaelic holiday celebrating the promise of spring. Bonfires and symbolic rituals around the protection of cattle, crops and people were part of the ancient Beltane celebrations. More recent May Day rituals are less involved, such as leaving surprise flowers at the doorstep of a friend.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Imbalances will be righted, though not immediately. It will take time for equilibrium to settle in, but eventually the excess in one area will flow into the emptiness in another, and all will even out.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You possess a combination of characteristics that keep your love interested, though you might not realize exactly what they are. You’ll be slightly more self-aware now.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Instead of trying to figure out where you went wrong, ask for help. Others saw the mistake. By asking for help, you’ll save yourself time and improve your strategy in one fell swoop.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s better to do more with your presentation than risk being under-prepared or, worse, underdressed. An attitude that’s too casual will send the wrong message.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One way to test the water is to dip a toe in. Another is to ask the people who are already swimming. Your way will be to dive in. Someone has to be the leader. You’re good at it, so why shouldn’t it be you?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you feel vaguely threatened by the others in the room, take that as a good sign. You’ll do your best when there’s competition for the prize you want.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In some way, you’ll have to vote for yourself. Never mind that it’s an awkward position. Take a stand for yourself. If you don’t, you can’t expect anyone else to adopt your cause.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Take a lead from the giant tortoise, who can live far past 100 years. Whether in work, relationships or life in general, longevity has something to do with slowing down.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Try not to be offended by what people say or do out of jealousy. If you can separate your ego from the situation, you’ll see that their reaction is actually enormously flattering.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your agreement and approval can be like a chip that people around you feel they have to earn. Given your current compassionate mood, you won’t want to make them work too hard for this.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Artistic inclinations will be highlighted today, and it will give you a certain pleasure to create a striking visual with your work, environment or presence. You’ll make people think.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You want to agree with someone you like; however, if you listen very closely, you’ll probably find that you can’t wholeheartedly sign off on it. You’re not of the same mind, so speak up.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your birthday wishes have real power. An influx of resources and relationships will start your year off right. You’ll lean on your strengths in June and team with someone with a complementary talent. You’ll get the chance to prove your value to an organization in June. A special relationship will keep you entertained in July. Gemini and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 12, 22, 31, 49 and 25.

VENUS IN PISCES ADVICE: Does love make the heart wise, or is it more likely to make a fool of people? Both. Today we’re still in the “wise” part, but all bets are off tomorrow and the four weeks following, as Venus, the planet of love, slips into impulsive Aries, the sign of youthful folly. While cosmic omens still support wisdom, do some soul searching and set an intention for the next four weeks of your personal life.

Here are some suggestions from Venus in Aries.

• Passion and drama can be exciting and romantic, but they shouldn’t be confused with real love.

• To love someone is to be happy with that person. If you’re not happy, it’s not a loving vibration you’re sharing, and it’s something to look into.

• There is not one person on Earth who was born to fulfill the every need and want of another person. Expecting a magical soul mate to appear and bring on the happy-ever-after ending, while fanciful and romantic in theory, is immature and unrealistic in reality. Hope instead for a mutually supportive relationship in which both people feel inspired to do and be their best.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Multiple Grammy winner and occasional movie star Tim McGraw is bringing his music to fans this year with his Sundown Heaven Town tour and a hit Vegas show to boot. The country crooner was born when the sun was in rootsy Taurus, the sign of the voice, and his moon was in Aquarius, the sign of people, philanthropy and altruism.
