Here we have a birthday person born on the cusp of Taurus and Gemini. This is a combination of the practical, fixed sign of Taurus with the mutable air sign Gemini.
Now this twosome may find it a challenge to bring these two energies together into one persona. Mixing the determined, patient Taurus with the totally flexible, fun-loving Gemini can present an awesome task. But once the native learns how to handle the flexible and determined, you have a person who is a joy to know.
Folks born this week are bright, chipper and always ready, willing and able to tell a great story. They enjoy travel as long as they have a home base and a family.
This birthday person is a born communicator. They like anything to do with telling the world how they feel. So often you find these people in the business of communication.
People born this week are: Genaro Hernandez, May 10, 1966; Prince Royce, May 11, 1989; Emilio Estevez, May 12, 1962; Dennis Rodman, May 13, 1961; Cate Blanchett, May 14, 1969; Emmitt Smith, May 15, 1969; Megan Fox, May 16, 1986; and Craig Ferguson, May 17, 1962.
In case you follow the cycle of Mercury and its retrograde periods, the next Mercury retro will be at 9 a.m. on June 26. So you have plenty of time to plan around it. Buy your car or computer before the end of June. If you can arrange your buying times, life will flow much better. A retrograde item can often be a super challenge.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) With Mars the ruler of Aries in Taurus until May 31 you should notice how you are able to steer away from arguments and voicing opinions. This is a glorious week to work toward making any changes you would like to see in your life. Do it now and it will really work in your favor.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) The highlight of this week should certainly be achieving the goals you have been patiently working toward. Remember Mars in Taurus offers you the time and energy to get where you want to go. Take advantage of the moment and work toward your ultimate goal.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) It would be smart to use your energy to achieve your ultimate goal. If you have no goal, then it is time while the heavens are on your team to set some goals. Otherwise you will miss the adventure of a lifetime and will be sorry when the good times pass you by.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) The time has come to face the reality of your relationships. If they are working and you feel good about the people in your life, then stay on the path you are on. Otherwise take a turn and make some changes in direction. The time has arrived to live a happy life.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Just because certain pals don’t agree with your ideas that is no reason to head on a new relationship journey. The idea is to stand firm, but to stay loyal. Just remember life without drama is no life as far as you are concerned. Keep up the good work and your ideas will become a reality.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) With the heavens beaming down on your newly tuned life you should be smiling and feeling proud of your accomplishments. If you have given up the control issue then look for a new lover to turn up and add spice to your life. An unexpected message could also spice up your life.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Don’t let the chatter of former pals cause you any problems. They are in the past and have no meaning to you unless you give them meaning. Your new journey is the best you have ever experienced, so embrace it. A newcomer in your life will have real meaning soon.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) If you can lend a helping hand to an old friend, don’t hesitate to do it. You will feel so good about remembering the hard work you do now that there will be a payoff big time in the near future. Don’t ignore anyone who could sometime help you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) This is no week to let anyone dampen your dreams. You are on the right path to the success you want for yourself. So stay on it and don’t look back. It is a waste of time and energy. A new BFF could become even more than you ever wished for or wanted. Keep looking.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Stand your ground and don’t give up. When it comes to your needs at work, try to tone them down just a little. Avoid bringing your business needs into your personal life. It can do damage that you don’t want right now. Just be who you are and you will win every time.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Spending time alone now is a valid use of your time and could force you to confront some of the issues you may have been avoiding in the past. When you need some mental and physical stimulation call a buddy and spend the night on the town. Take your new life in stride.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) The time you use to develop your creative ideas is time well spent this week. Look for a new BFF to pique your interest this week. Just don’t make the big move too fast. You need time to ponder what it is you really want in your life. Try waiting another week or so and then decide.
