May 2013 Horoscope

Your Best Bet: Yourself!

This month’s solar eclipse (new moon) in Taurus encourages a do-over in our personal financial structure. From the golden calf to Merrill Lynch, the bull has symbolized value systems and its direct effect: money. The bull used to represent solid, basic formulas for growth. Now, it is more of a shield for a huge gambling industry. Playing the market was always a risk, but could be a calculated one. Now, manipulative factors create unknown risks. For success, we must gamble on ourselves and the basic principles of banking. Taurus represents your values. If they are solid, you will prosper. For personal services, e-mail me at

Taurus  (April 20-May 20)
You are an assessor. With an instinct for immediate quality and future growth, you can profit from this cycle. Delay gratification for a greater possibility of success. Investments tend to be slow and steady, almost recession-proof. Basic fourth-grade math provides answers that reinforce your faith in your system — the one built from assessments and thrift.

Gemini  (May 21-June 20)
A year of expansion is winding down. Perhaps you have overextended in certain areas, but if it was toward growth, the returns will be gradual and solid. Avoid overspending, because opportunities to invest in yourself diminish. An increase in your education contributes to psychological growth and greater fiscal potential. Optimism is your weapon.

Cancer  (June 21-July 22)
Though gains are encouraging, your soul demands the largest investment. Feelings that you can translate into theories and share with others are the beginnings of a stronger and more effective interface between you and your good. Tighten up your spiritual skills. The ethereal must become real now. Pay attention. There will be a test.

Leo  (July 23-Aug. 22)
Exploring higher consciousness with an intercultural group can directly increase your cash flow. Networking is off the charts; you are only two contacts away from your objective. Friends and organizations lead you to success. It’s time for accounts receivable. Joyously begin billing.

Virgo  (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Don’t be quick to pay up this month. There are instances where other people’s money is available. Partners have resources they will share. Just ask. What is essential to your progress is not even perceived as valuable to others. Be objective in negotiations. Put yourself in their position. Answers come from balanced analysis.

Libra  (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
In this creative time, you are challenged by a square between institutional status quo and your emerging leadership skills. Your best output now is from your own resourcefulness. Go it alone in preparation for a new and higher-level alliance. Create a new worth from nothing. You will have what you need when alliances share their connections. Ask and you shall receive.

Scorpio  (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
As you search for the real thing, notice a fellow observer who also loves the shadows. At this time, it behooves you to be still and take in. What you absorb will add to what you know, and you soon have the assets to begin a new crusade. Gather like-minded others and share wins. See beauty in the left-brained. Natural allies.

Sagittarius  (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
A king is only as strong as his court. Growth comes from careful consideration of the level of satisfaction from your vendors. Need a new barber, accountant, or gardener? The replacement of an inept servant will be invaluable. Take time to explain, up front, what you expect. Then begin again.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Delegate a labor-intensive job to someone more suited to and contented with the task. Be more effective with your own time. Time is money. Trust your judgment in key players, and resist the temptation to micromanage. In fact, stop with the trust issues, and trust yourself and your decisions.

Aquarius  (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Home and community demand your attention, and you are busy with outings that will broaden your horizons. A matter of slight discipline nags, but the sooner you start, the easier it gets. Be willing to do whatever it takes. If you are truly willing, 90 percent of the toil slips away. You will be rewarded for your willingness and passion.

Pisces  (Feb. 19-March 20)
Enjoy new beginnings. The marketplace cooks, and you have plenty of options. Be generous in sharing the knowledge, and you will attract more to the action. You should spend a little to make more. Minor domestic improvement adds immediately to the bank. Spruce up the real estate.

Aries  (March 21-April 19)
Zooming around the neighborhood, you find others willing to rap about what’s going on. You can use the data infusion. Lean back and absorb. Two professional projects vie for your attention. If you enter with the idea of “no gold watch, just passing through for the experience,” sudden change will embolden you to go your own way. Communicate.
