This is the week a full-blown Gemini is born. They are an air sign that loves to talk, has a strong sense of humor, needs plenty of space and the freedom that goes with it.
Gemini wants to be known as an intellectual. They are gifted writers, talkers and natural educators.
When a Gemini feels uncomfortable they need to talk about it, to hear the sound of the problem. Once they can talk about things, they feel better and their sense of fun and games returns.
Because they are so cerebral, Gemini is quick to become bored, so they need plenty of variety. You need to be able to keep their attention and the only way to do that is to be able to constantly change the rules of the game.
A Gemini can change their point of view from one day to another. So to get along well with a Gemini you must be flexible.
People born this week: Jane Byrne, May 24, 1934; Bennett Cerf, May 25, 1893; Lenny Kravitz, May 26, 1964; Vincent Price, May 27, 1911; Gladys Knight, May 28, 1944; President John F. Kennedy, May 29, 1917; Richard J. Pollard, May 30, 1939; Brooke Shields, May 31, 1965; and Andy Griffith, June 1, 1926.
Certainly one of the highlights of the Memorial Day weekend will be the start of the summer festivities. It will also feature a full moon weekend as we remember and pay tribute. Just watch your manners as the moon will be full on Saturday and void of course on Sunday, May 26.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) Some of the new energies entering your life now should bring with them a new love and a new life agenda. So get out on the town during the holiday and say “yes” to every invitation. Remember you are in charge of your own destiny. So keep your mind on your goals and move forward this week.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) The feeling of constant challenge should ease up this week as Mars leaves Taurus and goes into Gemini taking any conflict with it. You are urged to keep your eyes open to any new relationship that crosses your path. It could be the soul mate you are looking for. In business as well as pleasure know exactly what you really want to do.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Mars will move into Gemini next Friday, so you can be sure there will be some action around you. Just watch your words by patiently saying little when you feel any negative vibes around you. If you follow that message, life will be much calmer and you will accomplish more than if you participate in verbal combat.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) As you await the arrival of Jupiter in your sign, do some good works and be kind to everyone you know. Otherwise Jupiter will bring you nothing but pain. Remember, what goes around comes around. After all, Pluto the planet of transformation will be doing battle for your mind. It is opposite your sun. So tread lightly.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) This is the week to state your case, to say it like it is. No more taking it on the chin. You need to stand up and be counted. The greatest gift you can give your lover, your family, your friends is your time and of course your love. So get busy and honor your own standards. Then this week will be a treasure for everyone.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) The combination of hard work and play will pay off well this week. The eclipse on Saturday, May 25 offers you plenty of reason to pull the strings you have been playing with and make them pay off. Prepare yourself for a new adventure in the romance department. It may not last forever, but it will be fun.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) This is not the time to assume anything. It is a time to check the facts, make a decision and move on. It may be a challenge to decide, but for your own good you must. Review your needs, what it is you really want to do now and then talk to your pals. Within days you will have the answer and a smile.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) It is time to share your opinions with people close to you and then make your final move. What you decide should be based on a consensus of opinions, but mainly your needs. In that way, everyone will end up happy. Saturn demands responsibility so once you accept that fact, your life will be one of joy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) The greatest gift you can give to friends and family this week is your interest in what they do. So even if you must fake it until you make it, show interest. A new face in your social environment could really turn your head and make you a happy soul. So try to get out on the town, even if it is only a night or two.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) In your bid to get where you want to go you might have to compromise. If you can pull that off you will be surprised how far you can take yourself in your career. Just remember people get upset because of their problems not yours. This week is not the time to take events personally. It is time to play it cool and count your money.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Just because other people are off the wall does not mean you need to follow suit. Test your own faith and detach from some of the nonsense that keeps stirring up around you. There is no reason for you to join the emotionally charged climate. You should be the one providing the calm in the storm. Keep it up this week.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) This is a week to check yourself and make sure you do not bend too far in any relationship you happen to find yourself involved in now. If you are happy with the way life is going then keep it up. Don’t listen to what others have to say. This is your week of love and emotion. So whatever you want, put it in your pocket and run with it.
