Earth is 4.54 billion years old, and yet it feels new as the sun explores bright Gemini. Everyone is talking about the latest trends and other mentally stimulating bits of fun. Gemini energy is about zippy communication, bold ideas and some mischief, too. The moon floating along the Piscean Sea sprinkles beautiful imaginings into the mix.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). One fix will solve multiple problems, but not all of them. Be strong, though, and don’t allow the little things to discourage or derail you. Each change has its own unique set of challenges.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Strong friendships are flexible friendships. They will last through life changes, physical moves and social shifts. You’ll get the chance to demonstrate your emotional flexibility.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Blame keeps people stuck in negative patterns. As you break a cycle of blame by accepting more responsibility for the way things are, another person will do the same and meet you halfway.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Focus on the ending. You want to leave people with a good feeling. You’ll succeed in this as long as you put some thought, planning and practice into it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You fear monotony the way some people fear spiders. That’s why you’re determined to change things up. Lead with your love of variety and knack for finding or creating entertainment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may start out feeling stuck, but a few small efforts will be all that’s needed to free you up. Consider the mix of people around you. Go where the decision makers are, and you’ll impress.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are the expert. Own it and do not make apologies. People need you to be strong. You may not have years of experience in the topic of the moment, but you do have a unique perspective worth sharing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll make choices as to how much you’ll reveal about yourself and when. These choices may appear to be made casually and in the moment, but you’d be wise to put some serious thought into the matter.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be aware of how the people around you are influencing you. You’ll gravitate toward those who help you develop your natural strengths, and you will want to spend the best of your time and energy with these people.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Quote yourself rather than others. You know more than you give yourself credit for. Make determinations and draw conclusions. People are looking to you for help.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You need a great coach – someone to think ahead of where you are and help you plan and do all it takes to get to the next level. Keep this in mind, and eventually you will attract the right person.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are smart, motivated, unique and inspired. Believe it. Let nothing you say count against you. Value yourself and your services highly, and others will, too.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You have an excellent sense of where your true talents lie, and you won’t allow yourself to drift off course. Next month, your friendship circle will get bigger, and you’ll entertain many. A mission begins in July. August brings a payoff from something you planned many years ago. The love plot is exciting in September. Leo and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 38, 2, 33 and 16.
TRINE OF GOOD FORTUNE: You’ve heard stories about lottery wins gone sour. You’ve read about movie stars with looks, talent and money who lose it all to drugs. The superficial things that people think are going to make them happy often just don’t. Money and fame can be lucky or unlucky.
Truly fortunate occurrences often don’t seem like much when they first show up and can even come in the form of major problems. May 24th will bring an auspicious trine between Jupiter and Saturn and the kind of rich good fortune that is much more than a happy circumstance. It is an opportunity to become a better person, to grow into the person you want to be, to shine in a different setting, make new friends and generally see yourself with greater clarity. If you thought that May 24th was going to be the luckiest day of your life, what would you do to get ready for it? Take the next two days to straighten up, work on your presentation, tend to your relationships and the like.
