Last Day of Taurus Sun 2013

The Scorpio moon is in danger of taking himself too seriously on this the last day of the Taurus sun. Lighten things up by making someone laugh. Tip: Humor depends on the nuances of a surprise. If a surprise veers too far from what’s expected, the effect is random instead of humorous. It has to be just outside of what’s expected to get the laugh.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). While others seem happy enough with all that’s going on, you can’t help but notice the subtle slipups and details missed. That’s why you’re the perfect person to be in charge of quality control.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll easily find the gift inside the moment. Instant gratification does not always come with a backlash of consequences, especially when you’re pleased by simple, natural pleasures.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Even though you’re exposed to the same environment as everyone around you, your thoughts about what you experience will be highly original. The independent thought you demonstrate will surprise a few people.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When was the last time your expectations were not only met, but exceeded? The one who makes this happen will earn a place on your “favorite people” list and stay there a long while.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll take ownership of what you do. If you’re going to sign your name to something, you’ll sign it at the top so everyone can see. Knowing that you’ll be associated with a project keeps you striving to do your best.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may feel beholden to someone, but this is not really true. An alternative view of the relationship shows that you have given more than enough of what the other person wanted and needed.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Learning is more important than winning now. There’s little to be gained by getting to the finish line too fast. Slow progress will be best for today’s endeavors.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It is only natural to want reassurance, but needing it too much is a sign that you don’t yet understand how things work in an environment and how you fit into the scene. Instead of validation, seek knowledge.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your domestic scene will get the once over by someone whose opinion you care about. It could be an inspector, an in-law or a discerning friend. You’ll be pleased by the assessment, and you’ll learn something, too.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Even though you care about the scenery and the activities going on around you, what matters to you most of all is the people. One charming person is all it takes to ensure your good time.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People sometimes assume that there is blame to assign, when really what’s needed is to simply figure out what happened and what needs to happen differently the next time.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s important to relax, but you don’t want to relax too much. Good company prevents you from being lazy. Interacting with people you admire reminds you of who you are and who you aspire to be.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 19). The people you meet this year seem destined to bring you up. One special relationship in particular stirs the music that lives inside of you. It will be as though you are participating in a tribal dance. June and July bring a chance to work with family for the greater good of all. Lifestyle changes in September improve your health. Aquarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 2, 22, 29 and 17.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Tomorrow, the sun moves into Gemini, where it will traverse until June 20th. Even though Gemini energy is known to be intellectual, bright, clever and communicative, the role of instinct cannot be dismissed during this transit. Gemini people are known for their charm, and when the sun is in this sign, many people find the charm in even the most ordinary things — an ability that is charming in and of itself. It should be noted that no one is truly enchanting who does not rely on a strong social intuition for what people want and what they will find interesting or, better yet, fascinating. Under this sun, it’s not just the information that is delivered; it’s how the information is delivered that matters. Short attention spans are the norm these days. Anyone who can command attention and keep it will have an edge. Those who instinctively tease and build mystery and/or prestige into a message will be admired, followed and paid well for their talents.

The week ends with a full moon in Sagittarius and a lunar eclipse, to boot. This moon could see people behaving in extraordinary and atypical ways. We sometimes have to try things that are so “not us” to discover who we really are.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Taurus rocker Pete Townshend recently revealed the details of his life and times in the autobiography, “Who I Am: A Memoir.” The guitar god has been credited with inventing such basic tenets of rock ‘n’ roll as the Marshall stack, feedback and the concept album. Townshend was born when Venus and Mars were in passionate, high-energy Aries and the sun was in practical Virgo.
