Moon Alert

We have the all clear to do business. The Moon is in Aries.

If Your Birthday Is May 14

Actress Cate Blanchett (1969) shares your birthday. You are modern, up-to-date and even futuristic. You constantly push yourself because you seek perfection. You have confidence in your ideas and are not afraid to break with tradition. This year something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new. Take it easy and learn to serve others. This is a good year to travel.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

There is a frustrating element present because you want to express yourself about something; yet, for some reason, you feel muzzled. You have strong opinions but you cannot voice them. If you channel this energy into mental work, you’ll feel better.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Disputes about financial matters or something you own might get your goat today. The problem is you’re not happy with what’s happening, and yet, you can’t really say it. Perhaps you have to put on a happy face, but underneath everything — you’re growling.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You’ve had easier days. You might feel cut off from others today and lonely. You might also feel displeased or annoyed with someone, but you cannot say this out loud because you’ll look petty or insecure. Try to forget this, and just work industriously.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might be suspicious that someone is working against your best interests. You might not know who, but you sense that a “hidden enemy” is active. Don’t waste time worrying about this. Instead, focus on work that requires concentration and meticulous care.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will need all your Leo charisma to deal with friends, especially groups. That’s because others will be difficult to deal with today. Knowing this ahead of time, just get the best out of this situation that you can. Someone will block you because this is par for the course.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is not the day to make your pitch to an authority figure or to ask for approval. Quite the opposite. Authority figures will challenge you or block you in some way. Therefore, cope as best you can. If someone is critical of you — don’t take it seriously.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Bad day for discussions about politics, religion and racial issues. No matter how you want to push forward studies, legal matters or making travel plans — you will be blocked. Naturally, this frustrates you. Later, you’ll have another chance to address this.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Disputes about inheritances and shared property will be a Mexican standoff. Therefore, postpone these kind of discussions for another day. Not only will you not be successful, you will also feel at a disadvantage. Play to your strengths not your weakness.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This continues to be a contentious time dealing with those who are closest to you. That’s why arguments might break out, or you feel annoyed with someone. This is a hard day in particular. This kind of stress only comes along every two years. Good luck.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will experience difficulty dealing with others at work. “Talk to the hand!” You might feel cut off from them or ignored. Don’t let this get you down. Instead, use this same energy to focus on details and finish routine work. You will be excellent at this.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Romance is in the toilet. Lovers are unhappy. Similarly, a tough influence makes it difficult to deal with your kids as well. Even social situations will make you feel shut out and ignored. This is a brief dark cloud on your horizon — relax.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Don’t be too ambitious about pushing through your plans and ideas at home or with family members because it won’t work. Instead, pull your energy in and focus it on one job and get it done. You have endurance and you will do well at work that requires attention to detail.
