Horoscopes for May 18, 2014

By
From page C4 | May 18, 2014 |

The sun crossing through the final stages of Taurus stresses the importance of persistence. Tenacity wins out — not every time, but surprisingly often. Hang in there. Believe that you have what it takes, because you probably do. Tomorrow, Mars will end the retrograde journey and unleash a surge of fresh momentum.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You won’t do everything on your list today. Be sure to put the less pressing items on the schedule, though, so they don’t fall through the cracks. Thoroughness will count more than you think.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Energetically, yearning affirms what you don’t have instead of what you do. So it’s important that you do not yearn for what you want. If you really want it, the thing to do is to act as though it’s already yours.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your success will depend on the way you apply yourself mentally. If you can stop yourself from thinking about the wrong things and get your head in the game instead, you could actually win this.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your sign mate Helen Keller has the best advice for you today: “Security is mostly a superstition. … Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. ”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Talking about what you want is the first step to bringing it into existence. Good, supportive friends will be able to hear your plans without being threatened by them in any way.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want your life to have structure but not to be so rigid that there’s no room for change, spontaneity and creativity. All will respect the standards you set today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll have several ideas about promoting yourself, and one of them will work brilliantly. But which one? Talk with a savvy Capricorn or Virgo to figure it out.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Stick close to the people who help you stay emotionally centered. Avoid fixating on one narrow aspect of life. Focusing too intently and too small will blind you to the many opportunities that exist around you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll accomplish what needs doing if you don’t let yourself do anything else until the hard tasks are completed. Being strict with your schedule now will set you up for success later in the week.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The thing that’s worth doing can’t be done alone. The enormity of the task will force you to reach out in ways you normally wouldn’t. By the end of the month, you’ll consider yourself richer for these new connections.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). While you’re feeling strong and secure, document the moment. This way, when fear comes to visit (and no life is exempt from this occasional visitor), you’ll be ready to do battle.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your struggles may be a sign that you’re not well suited to a task, which is not your fault. Life suddenly gets easier when you use the talent that naturally energizes you.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 18). When you are passionate about something or someone, there is little that can stand in your way. You’ll invest your heart this month and watch life change to accommodate your wishes. New friendships are struck next month. July brings the resolution of a battle. September brings spiritual growth through a process. Aquarius and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 22, 35, 48 and 38.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: On Mars, the days last only slightly longer than Earth days, and yet the years are more than 668 days long, and so the seasons stretch on and on. This past retrograde of Mars in Libra felt particularly long for those whose ambitions seemed to be stalled or put on hold for one reason or another. Mars retrograde in Libra featured some stagnant social energy in the form of expectations that weren’t quite met and trouble connecting or building together because of misunderstandings. But whatever went awry, it can all be sorted out with the freshly direct Mars cycle that begins on Monday.

These are the last days of the Taurus sun for 2014. On May 20, the sun’s trip into Gemini will seem to alter the barometric pressure. Gemini brings levity and trend chasing, trying different kinds of fun and refusing to be too serious. Relationships are forged fast under these communicative skies, and all it takes is one friend to make everything change. This week will make last week seem like a long nap.

Jupiter and Saturn align on Saturday, May 24, for the last of a series of three good-will gestures. Hope fills skies and hearts.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Comedy force Tina Fey was born when the sun, Mercury and Saturn were all in Taurus, suggesting amazing stores of patience and persistence. Libra energy is also a prevalent force in her natal chart. Both Taurus and Libra are ruled by Venus, making “girl power” a theme in the life and work of Fey, the first female SNL producer and the creator of “Mean Girls” and “30 Rock.”
