Horoscopes for May 5, 2014

By
From page B5 | May 05, 2014 |

Cinco de Mayo is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, but in the United States, it is considered a prime opportunity to celebrate Mexican culture and heritage. The festivities will be guided by a Leo moon that favors drama, color and entertainment. The moon forms a lucky trine with Venus in the evening for extra emphasis on aesthetics.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your smile makes people feel comfortable. The more comfortable people feel the more likely they are to go easy on their personal rules and regulations. Your smile grants you access to private worlds.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have a certain way you like to be treated. Reward those who do the right thing once, twice, three times and more. Behaviors have to be practiced to be learned.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re in the mood to take a risk, but you also know where to draw the line. You’ll gamble a portion of what you have, but not all of it and not what you don’t have, as many gamblers tend to do.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you’re wondering why people are opening up to you, telling their stories and sharing the intimate details of their lives, it’s because your smile is the sign of welcome they’ve been waiting for.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll tackle the most difficult problems first, and the other problems will either suddenly seem like non-issues or will actually be non-issues because they are handled along with the natural proceedings.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Those in your company will enjoy your charm and personality. Social graces alone won’t be enough to persuade people to give you what you want, but they sure won’t hurt your position!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Hardships may be what strengthen people, but this concept is far easier to accept after the hard times are over. Your confidence will build as you look back at all you went through to get where you are.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A person who loved you long ago still loves you. Even though you don’t have the evidence of this affection in your daily life, by quietly questioning whether this is so, your feelings will confirm the truth of it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you constantly are feeling like you are in a down position, it’s because you have more on your plate than the people around you. It is simply not fair to make comparisons when the game is stacked like this.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Wish crazily. There is something of value in even the silliest-seeming dream. Let yourself be whimsical. You can always go back later to find the value in your whims.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There are jokes that only you and a very select number of others would appreciate. The person who can make you laugh with this kind of joke will have your heart.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your travels will bring you face-to-face with someone you wouldn’t have chosen to interact with, and yet you’ll learn and solve much through contact with this person.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Goals will take less time than you think to accomplish, so dive in and get things done this month. The good feelings carry over to June when you’ll share an adventure with a special friend. Education becomes increasingly important, and you’ll make money quickly with what you learn in August. Capricorn and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 3, 33, 14 and 11.

MERCURY IN TAURUS: On May 7, Mercury will leave the realm of Taurus to spend time in Gemini. Though Mercury does feel at home in Gemini, there are also advantages to the Taurus transit to be utilized before the change. For instance, while in Taurus, Mercury likes to remind us of the importance of virtues like patience, humility and diligence.

Patience will be the focus today. If you aren’t a naturally patient person, learning the habits of patience will be the next best thing. This starts by identifying the source of your impatience. At the heart of it, there is a reality you are not accepting. What is it? Naming it might not be easy. Some digging might be required before you can get at the thought that is causing you to lose your cool. In this case, it helps to ask yourself leading questions. Why do you want to rush? Is there too much on your to-do list? Do you need to manage your expectations? Could you delegate? Or perhaps there is another trigger. Write about what makes you feel frustrated and anxious. When you are more conscious of your thought patterns, you will know when to stop and relax.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: It has been three years since Adele released a record, and her upcoming new album is highly anticipated. The Grammy-winning Taurus also has lucky Jupiter in Taurus, the sign that rules the throat and vocal cords. Her moon in Capricorn suggests an excellent head for business and a love of challenge. Her Mars in Aquarius indicates the important role of philanthropy in her life.
