Horoscopes for May 7, 2014

By
From page B7 | May 07, 2014 |

Day-to-day events take on a new spirit of levity as Mercury skips into the realm of the twins, which happens to be the realm he rules. Mercury feels like a king in Gemini and therefore entitled to make whimsical demands and unreasonable proclamations, many of which turn out to be surprisingly doable.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’d rather not have to tell your story. You’d rather gather all of the information you need and more by listening to others. But you have to tell at least a little, or they won’t open up!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Get resolution, even if you know that the problem is all in your head. It’s important to get a handle on mental friction, because however minor it may seem, it still detracts from everything you do.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Unless you are a therapist or a customer service agent, avoid letting people air their grievances and problems to you. There’s no time to waste now as you busy yourself with building a better future.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ve modeled yourself after someone you admire, and now you’ll see the first signs of success. Now that the likeness is being achieved, the next step is to share in the kind of results your model enjoys.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The situation at work will be new, unpredictable and potentially tricky. Whether you’ve done it before is irrelevant. Believe in yourself, and you’ll do fine or even better than fine.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Listen to what people give you in conversation. Perhaps what they mention isn’t deliberate, but there is still an underlying reason for it. Doors will open for the good listener.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People will make offers to you all day long. Some you’ll accept; some you won’t. It’s not personal. You’re just responding to what interests you. You’ll make an offer, too, and if it is a good fit, it will be accepted.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll meet a few new people and should take an easy, laid-back approach. It would be a mistake to focus too much on getting a result from each interaction.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will be more aware of your choices in how to respond to others. By not answering every request and not picking up the phone every time it rings, you will take control of a relationship.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Being disciplined in one aspect of your life proves that it is possible for you to be disciplined in the other areas. Address a weakness, and take a step toward turning it around.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There is quite a lot of busywork to handle, but don’t let the surface-level stuff take up your whole day. Take the time to get into what really matters to you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Naturally, you can’t blame people for their wealth and attractiveness, but that doesn’t make it any less irritating when you are in direct competition. Trust that there are those equally irritated by your many remarkable assets.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your personal life will ride a happy groove, and you’ll then focus on business. Excellent influences come along this month, and you’ll absorb them and pay it forward, too. Bright ideas turn into June projects. Developing the potential of others is your forte in August. The best financial months are May, July and September. Gemini and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 22, 38 and 42.

RULES FOR MERCURY IN GEMINI: The sun enters the realm of the twins and will dance through this part of the sky until May 29th. Conversation will flow, commerce will happen quickly, and trends will gather support and momentum. The cosmic tone is lighthearted, and the best developments occur without worry or fear. Mutually satisfying deals are struck in the moment and without accompanying legalese. Forwarding your own interests in the weeks to come will depend on the levity of your attitude. Here are a few guiding principles to steer you toward the lighter side:

Connect with animals. Animals are experts at being in the moment and are almost never thinking about their income taxes instead of being present to the here and now. Playing with an animal is a fine way to sync with the current reality.

Play pointless games. The fact that there is no prize for winning or consequence for losing will allow for a perfectly playful mindset. The more time you spend in this relaxed but active state the better you’ll be able to access it when you need to. You’ll excel when you can play high-stakes games with the same comfortable approach.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Alexander Ludwig received a Teen Choice nomination for “best villain” for his portrayal of Cato in “The Hunger Games.” In the television series “Vikings,” he continues the trend toward tough, athletic and demanding roles. The tenacious Taurus was born when Mercury and Mars were in Aries, the high-energy sign of the warrior.
