Horoscope, Wednesday, May 8, 2013

New Moon Eve

The moon moves into Taurus early in the day, breaking the spell of yesterday’s hazy void-of-course lunar energy. Tomorrow brings the new moon and the first solar eclipse of the year. It will be an exceptionally lucky starting date, so if you’ve been planning a project or an improvement effort, consider calling tomorrow “Day One.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll benefit from knowing the motives of others, and you’ll easily figure them out now, too, especially if that someone is a child or seems to have the emotional maturity level of a child.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Of course you know what bothers you, but your expertise will pale in comparison to that of a certain person who seems to thrive on finding new ways to drive you crazy.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). An overlap of interests will influence your love life now. Money, work, romance, power, status, family matters and more will play into the action somehow. You’ll keep a clear head and compartmentalize well when necessary.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Passion isn’t dead; it’s just sleeping. Enjoy the cooling-off period while it lasts. This is what’s needed to recharge your energy. Work and relationships will thrive again once you’ve rested.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Act on your moneymaking ideas, especially if they involve an open invitation to the general public. You have special luck in matters of publicity and your reputation. People want to be around your upbeat energy.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You won’t be deterred by the complexities of romance. The best things in life are a bit messy. Expecting things to be otherwise is naive. You have the gumption to hang in there and try harder to make it work.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The time you spend following your curiosity will be the best investment of the day. It makes for good conversation, which is an absolutely free pastime that will lead to good fortune in many areas of life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are likely to get mentally swept off your feet by someone who strikes a chord in your heart. You’ll try to cover this up to the best of your ability, though, recognizing the benefit of privacy.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). This is the best day of the week to physically touch base, exchange information and demonstrate your genuine interest in others. People will open up to you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Spending more than you earn creates problems, even if it’s just a little more. You’ll keep the balance in check. This has to do with both money and more subtle systems of exchange between people.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll encounter traffic jam-like situations that feel hopeless as they inch along. Movement, even if it’s only a few inches at a time, is still movement. Relax and listen to life’s music. You’ll eventually get where you want to go.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll make friends easily. What will you do together? Investigate the goings on in your community. The best outings do not require you to spend a lot of money.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 8). Introductions this month bring luck. Your most lucrative times are now, July and December. The encouragement and support you give others will boomerang back to you as you apply yourself to a big project in June. Your affection for someone special grows through November, and 2014 brings a commitment. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 5, 42, 38 and 20.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a 17-year-old Taurus with a crush. The guy I like is a Capricorn, and he’s 23. You always say that two earth signs are good together. Is there any chance for us? If so, how can I get his attention?”

I don’t advise it for you this year. I would encourage you to channel your energy elsewhere — for instance, into an academic goal, a creative project or a team sport. While it’s true that earth signs can be compatible, you are at a time in your life when you need to develop yourself as a person before you can be truly happy in relationships. Here’s a weird paradox that happens: The more time you spend developing your interests outside of guys the more attractive you will be when you are ready to explore the world of relationships. You’ll have confidence, things to talk about and the independent spirit that is absolutely irresistible to a quality date.

Of course, it is nearly impossible for a Taurus to stop crushing on someone. Your determination and tenacity will have your thoughts habitually turning to him for a while, but filling your time with adventures and aims will lessen the intensity of your crush, and eventually, you’ll have a different perspective.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Taurus Enrique Iglesias shows off the mad-hot vocal skills his sign is famous for with songs that keep a crowd on the dance floor. The crossover Latin superstar is recording songs for his 10th studio album and is intent on providing his fans all over the world with a fresh sound. Born under a fiery Aries moon, Iglesias is sure to turn up the heat with whatever style he chooses.
