Horoscopes for May 8, 2014

By
From page A9 | May 08, 2014 |

Projects start out fun, glistening with potential, and each step is a brand-new effort. Then comes the middle bit – where many find themselves today – which can be bleak. It’s too soon for results, and there may be little evidence that the project was ever a good idea. The hardworking Virgo moon says, “Believe and keep going.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be caught up in dreams of what you could create with another person. In truth, you could create these same things alone or with someone else. It’s just more fun to share this vision of the future with your certain someone.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Sometimes objectivity is easily obtained, and sometimes not. Knowing this, you won’t expect another person to abandon attachments and see things from your point of view, even though you’re able to do so without effort.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The results of preparation will either make your journey more comfortable or more cumbersome, depending on how much your precautionary measures weigh.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll increase your influence as you focus on what others need. Explain how you can help another person reach their desired outcome, and you’ll make a friend or earn a customer.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You won’t make people guess who you are; you’ll spell it out with a story. You’ve told it before, and you’ll repeat it to a new audience, telling it better than ever.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may get caught up in the excitement of meeting new people and should be mindful not to let this lead to over-promising. What you would naturally be inclined to offer is more than enough.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s no need to overhaul your approach – one small change to your game will lead to a victory. Change too much at once, though, and you will lose sight of what is working and what isn’t.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As for your next move, you are way beyond the mental processing stage. Whether the move is foolish or wise seems beside the point. The move is an inevitability, arising from who you are at this time.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There should be no pressure to lock down a relationship, sale or other specific end result. If you concern yourself primarily with having a good time, the people you encounter will find this appealing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). An attractive someone makes otherwise boring circumstances an absolute joy. You’ll find yourself wondering and planning to make this kind of encounter happen more often.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Get a better understanding of what your loved ones do when they are not with you. Time spent at a child’s school or at a family member’s workplace, for instance, will benefit your relationship.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t have endless supplies of energy to give to relationships. Friendships have to make sense in your overall scheme. You’re likely to make plans with those who seem to require similar energy levels.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll be applauded and promoted for originality. You won’t always do things the “right” way, which will cause people to question whether their notions of “right” need to change. Next month brings improvements to your domestic flow. Travel and excitement occur in June and July. Your teachings will transform someone in October. Aries and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 1, 22, 38 and 4.

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. 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 your toward the lighter side:

• Stick to the rules of polite conversation. Choice of topic is key. Politics and religion are out, as is anything that conjures fearful imaginings. Rule out anything that belongs on the evening news. Rule out anything to do with your health or hygiene. Rule out your intimate personal feelings and secrets. What is left? The other person, for starters. If you stick to that and listen well, you can’t go wrong. More suitable topics include hobbies, sports, children, pets, travels and the larger plot points of your personal history.

Some will connect over shared media. Chitchat about technology, how you use it and your favorite apps is definitely favored when Mercury is in Gemini. Avoid, however, recounting the details of music, television and movies. It simply won’t translate or be as interesting as other topics.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: International superstar Enrique Iglesias has a habit of making odd bets on the World Cup, resulting in daredevil feats to delight and entertain his massive fan base. With more than 100 million units sold, his adoring fans can’t wait to see what this Taurus will do next. Mercury and Venus in his natal Gemini promise his playful, mischievous nature won’t disappoint.
