Horoscopes for May 2, 2014

By From page A9 | May 02, 2014

The sociable Gemini moon is a busybody. It won’t be hard to learn what everyone is up to, because most are inclined to talk openly and share widely. Those with a more private nature will find it challenging to hide out or duck attention, but if they are clever, they can effectively divert the focus from themselves to the hot topics of the day.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Usually it is pointless to wonder after the fact whether a deal you made is a good one. However, today provides you with a certain amount of wiggle room and perhaps a loophole that warrants a reassessment.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t have to change to meet the demands swirling around you. You’re the stable rock in the middle now, and more than one person will anchor around you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Do you really need someone to perform a ritual of contrition and appeasement in order to help you move past hurtful history? It may seem like overkill, and yet closure will be linked to a symbolic gesture.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re not worried about what’s in it for you, and that’s precisely why you’ll be promoted to a position of authority. People trust that you’ll make an impact that benefits all.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve already overcome enough in your life to realize that some of the things that people call “obstacles” are merely speed bumps in the road that are best taken slowly, though stopping is unnecessary.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You live in a great moment in history among admirable people. There are those around you who claim otherwise, and you will do well to avoid them and continue searching for likeminded souls.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll lean on your communicative talents. Whatever your role, you relate better to the role of “friend” and “companion” than you do to the title you’re supposed to be filling.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll handle responsibilities and chores with the aplomb of a person planning on running for office. You’re not in it for the glory or the votes, though – you just have a lot of energy at your disposal today.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll inspire smiles and provide relief. You’ll be successful in a dozen small ways, especially if it’s your job to care for, educate or feed people.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Consistency is what matters now. The job at hand is not easy, nor is it hard. It does, however, take a great deal of integrity to keep showing up strong time after time.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s the little things that bond you to a certain person – the private joke, the opinion you share with a glance, the thought that pops into both of your minds at once. There’s magic in these details.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have a soft spot for the oppressed or abandoned and a talent for relating to misfits. Your life will be made richer by your experiences on the fringe.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll be persuasive and outspoken as you take charge of your personal life this year. Because you make proper use of what’s in hand this month, you’ll be given more resources in June. In July, you’ll play a high stakes game. The stylish choices you make in September will lead to special invitations. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 24, 38 and 18.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: The act of trying too hard has a way of killing attraction. The trick is not to care so much – or at least to look like you don’t care so much. TAURUS: You’ll take a risk and get positive feedback. GEMINI: You are in the mood to be silly and make light of events, and your love needs this from you. CANCER: Your flirtatious nature will get you into delicious trouble. LEO: Passion could temporarily hijack your brain. VIRGO: If you hold yourself accountable to a standard, your love will follow suit. LIBRA: Your ability to laugh at your own contradictions is ultra-attractive. SCORPIO: Your free-spirited attitude makes you harder to manage, and that suits you just fine because you don’t want to be managed. SAGITTARIUS: You know what you want out of love. Tenacious and headstrong, you’ll defy opposition. CAPRICORN: Your idea of a fun time coincides perfectly with this weekend’s opportunities. AQUARIUS: You may be inspired to drop everything and live in the moment. PISCES: Don’t let someone put you on a pedestal, because in time, you won’t like the pressure of living up to that.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Tomorrow’s Cancer moon and Taurus sun will amp up the attraction between these two signs. Compatible desires and tastes will make for dreamy dates. The bull respects and adores Cancer’s nurturing ways and will love the crab’s attention. However, Cancer, beware: Taurus will maintain a certain image of what love should be, and there is little flexibility in the matter these days.
