Horoscopes for May 9, 2014

By From page A9 | May 09, 2014

Tensions mount as an opposition of the Taurus sun and Saturn in Scorpio starts to line up. The full force of this aspect will happen tomorrow. The distribution of attention and goods is the theme. The difference between “having” and “having not” becomes clearer by the hour. Lessons will be learned through deprivation or through avoiding it.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you let a conversation go on for too long, it will seem like you don’t have much else to do. There are many benefits to maintaining your status as a busy person, so seem busy whether or not you are.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). For a caveman, being the focus of attention was dangerous and usually occurred while under attack. Therefore, it’s only natural that performing to a crowd is a primal fear – one you will bravely overcome tonight.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are busy, and you put a high dollar amount on your time. That’s why you expect so much from both your work and your leisure hours. Those expectations will help put you in a prime location tonight.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will extend a secret generosity and will not only be uncredited, but you also won’t be around to see the reaction others have to your gift. Just know it’s favorable. To do the right thing is moral. To do it anonymously is noble.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People must earn your trust over time. Anyone who rushes the process will only be raising a red flag that will cause trust to take even longer to build than it otherwise would have.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll lead with your free spirit and colorful imagination. Try not to meddle in your friends’ business in the process. Design an adventure that doesn’t trespass on private property.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re not sure you can afford what you want. If you take the leap, you won’t be sorry. The money will show up. Tonight, be sure to leave with the same company you walked in with.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When considering how you’d like to spend your time and with whom, think about how different people highlight different aspects of your personality. The people who bring out your sense of play will win out.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People will forget what you tell them, but they won’t forget what you help them understand through action. Wherever possible, create a multi-sensory connection.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Everyone is weak in some way, but not everyone has the courage, drive and tenacity to overcome it. Greatness starts with winning a victory over your own weakness.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve always gravitated toward the jobs that make a difference, and there’s one that needs you desperately today. You’ll fight the good fight, and you won’t lay down your arms until the battle is won.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Friends and loved ones will try to switch things up, but stick to your original plan, and send a message that you like to live life deliberately and on your own terms.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll sweat to achieve the purpose you’ve longed for. Whether or not it pays, it’s still work, and it will lead to great benefits in May and June. You’ll share the wealth and be invited to wonderful places in July. You’ll heed warnings and skip over dangers in September. August and November bring blessings to family. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 24, 27, 11 and 34.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: When you choose to see people as interesting, they become more so. TAURUS: You won’t have to do much to cause a change in a relationship. Because of the way you observe your loved one, this person will change. GEMINI: You don’t prioritize leisure and pleasure as highly as some, but you’ll like how they influence you anyway. CANCER: Once you place your trust in someone, you’ll keep it there awhile. The whole point is to get comfortable. LEO: The one who makes your responsibilities seem important is the same one who makes your burden seem light. VIRGO: Ask for the straight answer – this will make a difference in your future plans. LIBRA: Physical attraction isn’t everything, but it sure will seem important over the next three days. SCORPIO: Someone longs to be listened to and taken seriously, and you’ll provide that act of love this weekend. SAGITTARIUS: You once saw a certain person and you strolling along, hand in hand, old as the hills. What’s your vision of the future now? CAPRICORN: You’ll shine in a tough group, further proof that you thrive when challenged. AQUARIUS: Are you really going to remember with satisfaction the temptation you resisted? PISCES: Feeling out of your league is no fun. You want to feel comfortable but stretched.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The Taurus sun will be reflected in the Libra moon – both signs that are ruled by Venus. Taurus and Libra will bond in their shared aesthetics and appreciation for the beauty found in nature and art. Music and romance fill their hours together, which feel like they are occurring inside a storybook or painting. Take pictures so that when the weekend is over and the spell is broken you can conjure the memory.
