Horoscopes for May 3, 2014

From page B5 | May 03, 2014 |

There are no known intrinsic healing properties in milk and cookies. In fact, some would argue the combo is downright unhealthy, though the sweet and soothing feeling that accompanies this treat tells a different story. The Cancer moon mulls the pluses and minuses of this and similar comforts, settling on what works even unreasonably so.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll get the sneaking suspicion that your efforts are being wasted on someone who can’t appreciate them. Pull back and look around for potential new fans.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You quite simply accept yourself for who you are, and what you say will reflect this. You’ll make someone laugh by admitting your vulnerability – and that takes real confidence.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Doing a bad thing is not the same as being a bad person. Once you make the distinction, it will be easy to forgive and forget the one who has wronged you and move on to a lighter, brighter mood.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You won’t be satisfied with the same thing that amused you last weekend. You correctly sense that there’s more out there for you, and you’ll keep moving until you find a place where the choices are better.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A changed environment will have you starting over in some regard or getting a feel for new people. The way you interact will be a kind of negotiation. Be aware that an order of status is being established.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have skills that you hold back for special occasions. When you want to – and you’ll want to tonight – you’ll turn on the movie star swagger and come up with the lines to match.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Finish what you start. If you make that your first priority of the day, you’ll love the good fortune that follows: an opportunity that could be seized only by someone with your particular bag of tricks.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Most wrongheadedness is born out of an overactive ego. The trick is to humble yourself, and you’ll see everything clearly. You’ll know without a doubt your strongest next move.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You wouldn’t have thought there is such a thing as too much support, but today you’ll see that there is. If you accept all the help offered, you won’t be as strong as you need to be.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be drawn to the person whose interests are so different from yours that you’re sure to be stretched beyond your comfort zone. Pretending to be brave is often the first step to actually being brave.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). To get what you want, you have to want it badly. Being unsure leads to a weak commitment and unsatisfactory results. When you’re sure of your aim, you’ll apply your whole self to reach it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re not looking for new friends, but you’ll find them anyway. You’ll share something unique and personal about yourself, and others will open up and feel immediately connected to you.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Dealing with right now instead of worrying about the future will expand your good fortune. This month, the business you do with a close friend will make things right in your slice of the world. Commitments will change, and a new talent will blossom because of what you agree to. Finances are best in June, August and January. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 14, 3 and 49.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I had to move to a small town for work, and it’s painful to live here after living for years in the city. I’m going to move as soon as I get a new job. In the meantime, I’d at least like to meet someone nice to spend time with, but I’m having trouble meeting anyone here. Do you have any suggestions for a Libra with sophisticated tastes in a small town?”

Having sophisticated tastes doesn’t mean you expect and are only satisfied by the best service and the widest array of choices. That’s being narrow and snobbish, which is different from sophistication. Sophistication is a level of discernment that helps you better appreciate the unique qualities of everything you deal with. In other words, sophistication is not demanding that the pizza is made Chicago style. Rather, it’s knowing how pizza is done in five different places so you’re better able to compare, contrast and appreciate how it’s done where you are. That doesn’t mean you have to like the result, but you appreciate what goes into it. You’ll have an easier time meeting people when you can relate in a positive way to the environment you share with them.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Outlaw country artist Eric Church was born when the sun and Mercury were in Taurus, an ideal placement for country music crooners because Taurus is a down-to-earth sign that rules the voice and is symbolized by the bull (ideal for cowboys). Church’s moon and Uranus in Scorpio indicates the energy of a rebel who can relate to “The Outsiders,” which is also the name of Church’s new album.
