Horoscope May 2008
Time to Restore Order
Aggression, grandstanding and misplaced emotion have led to instability. We have become complacent with action for its own sake. Supposition, conjecture, and outright lies masquerade as truth. Taurus is the bank, requiring investment and collateral. Virgo is the system by which business is run. Capricorn is the administration. Questionable loans, creative accounting, and golden parachutes have contaminated the soil. It’s time to start the cleanup!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Most bulls have kept their head while others have been losing theirs. With notable exceptions, the noble bull has restrained from overindulgence and is exhausted from attempting to rationalize the fiscal meltdown. Keep your own counsel, cut out some unnecessary extravagance, and chill. Your time will come.
Gemini (May 21-June20)
Your sign rules the left and right sides of the brain; there is no mistaking your intelligence. But are you smart? Intelligence is lecture; smart is lab. Break out of your comfortable focus group and go immediately to market research. Hit the streets (the lab) and apply those theories to cash flow. Data is just starting to gather. Take note.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Brilliance now should be under the bushel. Plans will take time and refinement. The time is ripe, however, for maintenance of developed relationships. Give alliances the kudos they deserve for their loyal support thus far. Do not weaken the group by ignoring wheels that don’t squeak. Investors are aware. Give them a reason.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Tip for the month: Take nothing personal. The ego is the force of the lion, bestowing grace and leadership, but the little mouse is needed for the thorn in the paw. The little are there for you now. When it is not the season for kings, they retire to the country to repair/prepare. Obscurity has a regenerative purpose. Chill.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Speculative plans can approach reality now, especially if you limit the time given to gab sessions. Certain understood arrangements really need to be spelled out in black and white. However simple, this paperwork will provide a foundation and assurance that the job will be completed. Leave no loose ends.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You’re having a Peggy Lee moment; those subconscious lyrics rhyme with “Is that all there is?” The old ennui has tagged you. Recognize that your relationships with certain people, places, and things are over and let go. Boredom is also death, so trash the waste in your life. When you return from the spa, you’ll find new beginnings.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov.21)
Your usual steady creativity is in a manic phase, so nothing really gets done. Action is within, where you are contemplating crazy ideas and fascinating new data. Resources you have depended upon become smoke and mirrors, but keep an open mind. Enemies become friends. It’s a bipolar world now. Adjust.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec.21)
A long-held investment is literally worthless, but the time and space its loss will provide you (especially mentally) is the secret of new success. The I Ching says, “He who stays too long misses the ending.” Shine that little light of yours into unknown darkness. Appreciate a (rare) void.
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
See yourself through the eyes of another. Criticism now is a gift. Don’t waste time with emotional reaction. Take the information and apply it to an improved you. An image makeover will be most fortunate, as you are making profound impressions. A colorful wardrobe addition and accessories are imperative; it’s time to invest.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
If you have children, play with them. If childless, be a kid and play. Lighten up, space cadets! Chase a crazy idea into an unbelievable situation and wallow in the fun you’ve created. It’s cosmic recess. Go outside!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
A watched pot never boils, and stop with the woulda, coulda, shouldas. Data overload can make you obsess, and that’s hard on fish energy. A major pain cannot be removed by your efforts. It’s not a flaw in your character, but simply the time that stands against you. When it rears its ugly head, chant, “My life is an ascending spiral.”
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Too much information disintegrates into gossip. You are a magnet for stream-of-consciousness confessions and are understandably uncomfortable. Yet you are supposed to have the 411. Take all the drama with a grain of salt; it’ll be useful in future equations. Hear everybody, but make no promises.
