Horoscopes for May 29, 2014

By
From page A9 | May 29, 2014 |

If you find yourself responding emotionally to the existence of flowers or celebrating the wonder of clouds, you might blame it on the lovely Lady Venus, who yesterday crossed into one of her favorite parts of the sky. Ah, the beauty there is to behold! The world is visual poetry. Give it a soundtrack, and watch it dance!

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some days are just harder. This is a day in which you are glad for your challenges because you recognize how they shape you, body and soul. You are getting better and better.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are dogs who go wild during storms – chewing through drywall and the like once the thunder and lightning hits. You’ll encounter a skittish soul and bring some comfort to the situation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are people who like you so much that it’s like you have your own fan club. You’ll reward them by taking genuine pleasure in generously honoring their requests.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll gain recognition for your individuality and talent. Making money from this is another story. You have to figure out how to fit your talent with what the group needs and wants.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Once a showman, always a showman – but your venue has changed. Now you’ll entertain people in a different way and glow as if a spotlight is trained on you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Secret clubs and odd alliances are part of the action, which may also involve code words, costumes or keys. It’s fun to feel a part of something bigger, even if that something is ridiculous and inane.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Right now, you’re just trying to get comfortable and learn a little more about the people you’re meeting. But farther down the road, these casual social opportunities will lead to partnership and joint ventures.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some worry that their lives are too ordinary to be interesting. You have the opposite concern. When it’s your turn to talk about yourself, your mind will race to come up with the stories that will help you fit in the best.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Because you’re brave and strong, you’ll be the one appointed to a messy situation. Approach this like you’re cleaning out a junk drawer. Be merciless. If it isn’t essential, it must go.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Some people never learn to listen, and most people find it challenging to listen well. As you work on this skill, know that your efforts will soon help you shine in a highly competitive situation.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What is personal to you will ring true with the general public. Broadcast a bit of what you’re going through on social media, and you’ll be met with encouragement and support.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your desire is to be comfortable and uncontroversial. You’ll connect in an easy, positive and light way, building trust among your peers. Your motto: Relax and enjoy.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Romance takes over your life in June. Singles meet a special someone. Couples connect on deeper levels. You’ll rise in social prominence in July. Add to your skill set in August, even if it’s expensive to do so. This training will start helping people right away and will start paying off financially in October. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 1, 22, 37 and 5.

VENUS IN TAURUS BEAUTY SECRETS: With Venus traversing Taurus, our appetites for luxury are heightened. Taurus is also the sign of money. The weeks to come could be hard on the wallet for those who do not put in place some financial guidelines. The biggest temptation will be to buy the thing that we believe will make us beautiful. Consider these natural beauty enhancers that you can get on the cheap:

Honey: Equal parts milk and honey mixes into a facial that will make your skin glow. A teaspoon of honey mixed with your usual shampoo gives it extra conditioning powers. Mix that same teaspoon with olive oil and you’ve got a mask that can hydrate dry hair.

Lemon: Lemons have antibacterial qualities and can be rubbed on the face to open the pores, eliminate blackheads and lighten scars. Lemon also works to give a sun-kissed look to your locks. Dampen your tresses with a water and lemon mixture and let the sun work on it for an hour or so.

Salt: This earthy substance can be mixed with bath gel to form a natural skin exfoliant. Dissolve it in hot water for a footbath to extract toxins from your body. You can even combine salt with baking soda for toothpaste.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: It is rumored that comedian Daniel Tosh’s tour rider includes the usual necessities of food and drink, with an added request of a book that Daniel might like to read. Gemini people are curious intellectuals, constantly craving mental stimulation. Tosh’s Mercury is in Gemini, too, and he has a bright Aquarius moon, which makes him a voracious processor of information.
