Horoscopes for May 4, 2014

By
From page C4 | May 04, 2014 |

Though Cinco de Mayo will come tomorrow, there are a number of people nursing the effects of margaritas this morning, with last night being a popular time for early festivities. In any case, the moon in Cancer maximizes the appeal of sticking close to home, handling domestic duties and readying ourselves for the busy week to come.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Don’t be so quick to dismiss situations that look stressful or difficult. The best things will be hard won. Tension and friction are precursors to exciting movement and change.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It may take a while to make up your mind today, but once it’s made up, you’re highly unlikely to change course. Therefore, you are wise to let every little consideration count.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You admire someone who will later come to admire you. Once this person feels accepted and reassured, he or she will open up. Later developments start in the spirit of reciprocation.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Just because the clock is ticking and you can’t turn it back doesn’t mean that time is an enemy. Try to think of the long and short hands as gently nudging you toward new adventures.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be a king or a queen, changing the rules of the land to suit your moral stance or fit your needs. You have every right to control your immediate environment. If you stretch further, boundary issues will come into play.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There is often a very fine line between friends and enemies. An ill-informed friend who means well could persuade you to do something that is not in your best interest. Stay alert and check the facts.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are open to a new perspective on the old scenery, but you’d prefer to witness new scenery and then let that experience marinate a while to see where it leads your perspective.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don’t get hunches every day, so when you get one now, you should definitely follow through. By honoring your instincts, you invite them to chime in more often.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Curiosity kills boredom and leads you to new environments. If you hang out there too long, though, overexposure kills curiosity, and then it’s back to square one: boredom. You’re happiest when you keep moving.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Why shouldn’t humor and amusement be something sacred? Laughter is essential. Finding a reason to laugh is important. Whatever time you spend on the lighter side of life is time well spent.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). At work, you will experiment with new ways of handling problems. You also will change your style of communication and model the behavior you would like to see in others.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Trust yourself to navigate your own love life. You don’t need directions to find the way to someone’s heart. You’ll figuratively put out your arms and feel your way there.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Over the next 10 weeks, you’ll use your augmented charisma and considerable powers of diplomacy to create a change that the world needs. A mentor will help you choose the alliances that will best serve you, and by June, you’ll be well on your way to a big bonus. A personal goal will be met in August. Aquarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 24, 33, 29 and 15.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Messenger planet Mercury is the main attraction this week as he moves into the realm of Gemini, his favorite part of the sky. From May 7th until May 29th, Mercury will take on the characteristics of the twins. There is excitement and fun in daily events, and this is largely due to the new trends that start to show up and take hold. Mercury in Gemini is bright and curious energy, and there’s a certain boldness to it, too. People are not afraid to ask the hard questions, but they do it with a degree of levity that makes everything more acceptable. Striking up a conversation seems easy under this planetary influence, even to a shy person. Being in communication will feel more natural than being out of communication.

Commerce also will be favorably affected by the Gemini transit. Deals go down quickly and are less complicated, as there is much good will and a reduced need to cover all bases with legalese. Products that serve “business at the speed of now” will do well, as no one has the patience to wait around while Mercury is in Gemini. What doesn’t make sense or provide entertainment in the short term will be ignored, while items that are flashy and fun will fly off the proverbial shelves.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: More than 20 years after her death, the world still mourns iconic movie star Audrey Hepburn. Born when the sun and lucky Jupiter were both in Taurus, Hepburn embodied the Venusian qualities of her sign: beauty, grace, a lovely voice and a patient way. The rest of Hepburn’s chart is widely varied, suggesting a well-rounded individual who succeeded in many areas of life.
