Horoscopes for May 27, 2014

By
From page B7 | May 26, 2014 |

This is the final day of Venus in Aries in the current cycle, as tomorrow she sheds her Joan of Arc armor for flowing silk gowns. Venus will luxuriate in Taurus, the sign that she rules, and though the past weeks have been uncomfortable for the love goddess, important work has been accomplished. Hopefully we learned what’s worth fighting for.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re thought of as influential and interesting in your group. It didn’t happen by magic. You earned this with years of experience in a particular area. Don’t deflect the praise; just say “thank you.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Personal and professional passions will intermingle in one particularly juicy challenge. This one won’t be easy, but it’s so worthwhile and will bring about your very best efforts.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The day’s events will highlight the gifts of your genetic heritage, and there is much to be glad about in your DNA. No one gets a perfect code, but focusing on the positives puts you at an advantage.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ve set your boundaries, and for now you won’t have to do too much to enforce them. This is the perfect time to ease up on the people around you and just enjoy their natural inclinations and tendencies.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). What you want will come in packaging that’s different from what you expect. In fact, you might overlook it for just this reason. Assume you already have what you want, and you’ll find where it’s hidden in plain sight.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s a good deal of laughter flowing through your life now, and you’ll appreciate funny friends. Tonight calls for temperance and moderation in all things.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Time management and money management will go hand in hand. Since you treat time and money like the precious commodities they are, you will seem to have more of both.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As a savvy socialite, you have learned to balance your emotions while making your personal and friendly agenda happen. Friends may throw you for a loop, but they won’t knock you too far off course.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will excel at self-direction. Choosing your own goals and sticking with them, you’ll stay focused on doing what challenges, grows and excites you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Inspiring others to greater productivity is the name of the game today. Don’t wait to be invited to be the leader. Take the reins and make it happen.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You feel a bit wild today, and you’ll have much more fun with this within the context of your usual life. Stick to the behavioral and appearance guidelines for the groups you’re in, but let your heart and mind go free.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your drive and desire is to be No. 1. You want to master the skills that will make you competitive with those you admire and then go beyond that and far surpass the competition.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You know that you are not your physical self, and yet what you do for your body this year will make you feel more alive and confident. You’ll be promoted because you show you can manage resources wisely and influence your team in a positive way. You’ll be honored in July. Family will travel to be with you. Sagittarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 25, 44 and 16.

VENUS IN ARIES WRAP-UP: Fighting for love seems like a contradiction, and yet struggling against the thing that keeps us from the ones we adore helps us prove that relationships are worthy of our most valiant efforts. When love wins out in the end, it is an even more precious and powerful force than it was before the fight. These are the lessons of Venus in Aries.

As we say goodbye to Venus in Aries for now, it’s the perfect time to reflect on our relationships. Prompts to illuminate and guide your future approach:

How have I been heroic in love? How have I been the victim?

What about my relationship is sacred? What is worth fighting for?

While Venus is in Aries, love can at times seem positively cinematic in scope. But looking back at what happened from a more mature place, one might wonder, “Why all the drama?” Much of it was probably unnecessary, but that’s Venus in Aries: young, impulsive, unreasonable, all the stuff that makes a good love story.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Golden Globe-winning Gemini Chris Colfer is also a bestselling author, a ninja sword twirler and a movie producer. Gemini people are known to be versatile, and Colfer’s Venus in fiery Aries indicates an extraordinarily high energy level. His moon and Mars in water signs suggests an artistic, deeply emotional inner world under that outgoing, self-assured social persona.
