Horoscopes for May 16, 2014

By
From page A9 | May 15, 2014 |

If the forward-reaching Sagittarius moon is still not enough to create the momentum you need, at least it will inspire you to investigate, gather more information and lay the groundwork for later. Mars is still retrograde, but after the weekend, this changes and it’s “game on.” Start packing your bags for the adventure.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When only half of the marching band is playing the right notes, it still sounds more or less like music. There’s a lot wrong with the large organization in today’s dealings, but the overall effect should still work.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Media can be misleading. You’re too savvy to let some Hollywood representation of events hype your expectations or play into your fears about what will happen.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Too often you carry more than necessary. Carry only what you’ll need today. Better yet, carry only what you’ll need this hour. By refusing to lug around future worries, you’ll stay light and effective.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). A good outcome depends on not only knowing what you’re trying to do before you do it, but also knowing why. If your “why” is solid, everything else will fall into place.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s someone you still need to forgive if you are to live and love freely. You don’t have to make a formal thing out of it. An internal acknowledgment may be enough to get unstuck.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t let insecurity get the better of you and make you believe that it will take some grand gesture to impress. The small things you do to show you care are the ones that will make the deepest impression.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Make a list of five things you could do to move forward, and execute it. Even if they are the wrong five things, you still will progress and learn enough to choose a more effective list tomorrow.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). While it’s true that most people are attracted to looks, money and power, the thing that makes you most attractive is what you contribute other than your looks, money and power.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Wary of new people, you’ll meet someone who causes you to drop your guard. You’ll be sold on the small things you have in common — a song you both like, a story that connects or a similar circumstance.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The thing that will make you better in business will also make you better as a person. That said, it will be work — and not the kind you enjoy, either. Worthwhile work, but work.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You admire those gifted conversationalists who can actually keep up with you, though they may be few and far between now. There will be a benefit to trying to include and engage those outside your circle.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll do more with less. The frugal choice will be the wise one, but you’ll have to be decisive and act quickly. One positive change will continue to make sense for years to come.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 16). You will be better tuned in to your body in the next four weeks, and as a result, you’ll enjoy a boost to your health. A research project or mission ties you to distant prospects in June. You’ll be signing papers atop a highrise in August. So much attention and affection will come your way in September that it may actually be hard to bear. Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 18, 44, 37 and 11.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You’ll think and say the best about others, and your optimism will be beautiful. TAURUS: A difficult person is nonetheless more interesting to love than a predictable one. GEMINI: In order to get the truth out of someone, you must first make that person believe you are on the same side. CANCER: Talking about all you’ve done together can bond you to another or cause this person to take a step away, depending on your intensity level. LEO: The oddly romantic ideas will be the most fun to execute. VIRGO: Arrange to do nothing with the person you love. LIBRA: Just because someone is single doesn’t mean that person is lonely. SCORPIO: Be coy. Feel out a situation before jumping in. SAGITTARIUS: The flirtatious one likes to cross acceptable boundaries at a distance that’s never more than a few steps over the line. CAPRICORN: One heartfelt experience will stand out against a thousand generic exchanges. AQUARIUS: You might be surprised by who is thinking about you and how. PISCES: You may feel like you need a rescue, but don’t act like it.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: As the Capricorn moon reflects the Taurus sun, these two earth signs are once again reminded how easy it is to get along. There is nothing lazy or unintentional about these two. Favorite bonding activities will include building and growing things. When they get together, they immediately fall into a pattern that works to create results they both can be proud of.
