Horoscopes for May 25, 2014

By
From page D4 | May 25, 2014 |

The sense of anticipation is palpable. The upcoming week brings the new moon and a sign change for Venus and Mercury, all aspects that will come with their own unique opportunities and challenges. Physically working off some of the high energy that comes compliments of the Aries moon will prevent you from getting pre-game jitters.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). They come to you because you give them a problem that’s interesting to solve. This is how you engage people without even meaning to, and it’s why you’ll find yourself with an audience this afternoon.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Points of logic, statistics and analysis will affect the numbers of a deal, but it’s the emotional element that ultimately will determine whether or not this one closes.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A credible person will try to influence you. Don’t assume that just because a person has a title he or she is knowledgeable enough to fulfill your needs. Do your own research, too.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll learn much just by being attentive to the way others are experiencing you. Your awareness will be so strong that you’ll almost be able to hear what they are thinking as they interact with you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Make sure the stories you share are yours. Other people’s stories are either gossip or are too far removed from the source to be interesting to your audience.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Put extra emphasis on you-to-you conversation. Prioritize “you” time. What’s needed most is a good pep talk in front of the mirror and then another one a few hours later.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It makes no sense to let bad feelings keep you isolated. Those are the very same feelings you share with so many around you. Opening up with both the good and the bad brings connection.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There may be some pressure to conform and pretend, but funnily enough, it triggers you to go the opposite way. Instead, you’ll be in the mood to create and rebel.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know what you like, but you sometimes defer to those around you, letting them have their way and going with the flow. Your flexible attitude helps keep things exciting.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The bad stuff exists and always has. The question is: How deeply are you willing to engage with it? If the answer is “not so much,” this day will mostly make you smile.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Part of your day will involve assigning people to jobs. The one who is unconcerned with the outcome should not be put in charge. Neither should the one who is overly concerned.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have the potential to really help people through your instruction. Check in and ask for feedback. Otherwise, you may be surprised at what people are taking away from your conversation.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Write down what you desire today, because your written birthday wishes will have real power when you blow out the candles. June ends a battle favorably. You’ll love the creativity and new business that comes in July. You’ll use other people’s money to do something remarkable in September. Pisces and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 20, 44, 49 and 37.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The Memorial Day weekend started out as a high-energy adventure, and Saturday’s trine of Jupiter and Saturn suggested the rules might even be bent to facilitate some of the fun. If that led to a little too much wild energy, the moon slips into Taurus this evening to tone things down. Monday will have a lazy feel. Those who are able to achieve deep levels of relaxation will be in a better position when the action kicks back up on Tuesday.

The new moon on Wednesday will be the sweet spot of the week. This sociable, intelligent aspect is a ray of sunshine and a source of ease that helps to set us up for the games of the rest of the week. This is a lucky moon for making a deal, a friend, some mischief or, better yet, all of the above. Also on Wednesday, lovely Lady Venus slips into one of her favorite homes, the sensual realm of Taurus. In this part of the sky, she may as well be Marilyn Monroe singing “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” as love, money, music and sensuality get all wrapped up into the same musical number of our lives. Enjoy the glamour and pop of beauty that come with this transit, but don’t forget what really matters. How good of a best friend could diamonds really be? They rarely hold up their end of the conversation.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Mike Myers, who said that fatherhood has made him the happiest he has ever been in his life, has recently been blessed with a new baby girl. This versatile, witty Gemini was born under a Cancer moon, which favors home life and nurturing relationships. Myers has Mars in entertaining Leo – an aspect sure to shine through the next “Austin Powers” sequel rumored to be coming together.
