Horoscopes for May 6, 2014

From page B7 | May 05, 2014 |

The Leo moon brings out the theatrical lighting as we watch the dramas of our lives unfold in scenes. The tendency toward exaggeration will be excused, but if there’s one thing that is inexcusable, it’s dullness. “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” — Marilyn Monroe

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a job with your name on it, and you’ll do this as only you can. Your signature style won’t emerge as a creative effort; rather, it’s the natural outcropping of your work.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You bring an elusive quality to your work this week, and even though no one will name it and it can’t easily be described, it’s what distinguishes you from the others.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Handle a niggling responsibility. It’s like a tiny pebble in your shoe: It may seem insignificant, but if you’re continually stepping on it, it will become the foremost thing on your mind.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Someone you know acts differently depending on the venue and who’s involved. This is normal and true of everyone to a degree. However, when the inconsistency is glaring, beware the red flag and proceed accordingly.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The work you are doing may be serious, but you don’t have to match that seriousness with your attitude. You can’t build relationships from a rigid stance. Rapport is a kind of play, and it requires you to stay flexible in the moment.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You know better than to share your First World problems with those who have seen real hardship in their time. You like such people. They help you keep a proper perspective.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). One who lacks confidence and command is actually highly accomplished and knowledgeable with much to offer you. You’ll also encounter the opposite scenario: one who knows nothing and does so quite loudly.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It feels as though you can’t help a certain person, but you can. You don’t have to do much. Just show up. Small assurances can in no way make up for the vast, empty enormity of unanswerable questions, but they are something.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Everyone loves a mystery, even those who insist you give them all of the information because they hate surprises. Let the suspense build. Do not reveal all that you know.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re in a position to close the deal, so don’t procrastinate. When you seize the moment, you make a positive impression. Be confident – if not for you, then because they need that from you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Unimpressive exteriors have been known to hide truly impressive interiors. You’ll train yourself to stay open-minded and to ask questions instead of assume.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Not only do you think before you act, but you also think about what you think about. There is no danger of over-thinking things now; you’ll get clearer with each new idea.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You connect with an interesting new project and happily let it take over your world in May. In June, remarkably, everyone on your team will agree, and you’ll build something together that will last for many years to come. July is for making over your domestic life. Organization and simplicity lead to good fortune. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 23, 44, 49 and 50.

MERCURY IN TAURUS: Tomorrow, Mercury will leave the realm of Taurus with one final reminder: Anything worth doing is worth doing right. It takes diligence.

The current zeitgeist doesn’t readily support diligence. An endless supply of immediately gratifying distractions makes diligence seem like an antiquated virtue. Yet, when the devices and media are turned off, it becomes clear that what we build in the real world takes careful and persistent work.

The thing in your life that you have built through diligence will be a source of confidence and identity, a symbol of strength and a guide for future creations.

The enemy of diligence is having too many things to do to commit to doing any of them exceptionally well. This is an excellent time to pull back and look at your life and roles with an objective eye. What can be axed that you wouldn’t miss? Look for activities that have lost their luster, interests that might be retired and all of the clutter of material possessions that come with them. Paring down will liberate new sources of energy to be applied to the things that really matter to you.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Actor, director, activist, producer and style icon George Clooney long has been lauded for bringing old Hollywood glamour back to the world of movie-star menswear. His sign is ruled by Venus, and with communication planet Mercury in Taurus, as well, Clooney is drawn to all things timeless and classic. Currently, Clooney is filming the time-travel pic “Tomorrowland.”
