Your Horoscope For The Week Of May 12



imageAries (March 21-April 19)
Someone you’ve idealized takes a tumble from the pedestal early this week. It’s painful to watch, but in truth, you shouldn’t have hoisted ‘em up there in the first place. Give the ones you love more room to be human.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Rock the boat on Monday, instead of going along with the gang. You need to sound the wake-up call before everyone makes a costly misstep. Money-making opportunities start to flow in midweek, proving that it really is all about who you know. Let your friends in on your career objectives. If they can’t hook you up directly, they will introduce you to someone who can.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Give it up to the pros early this week. Someone who has mastered what you’re trying to learn can teach you a thing or two. You might even work alongside him/her, Celebrity Apprentice style. Expressive Mercury — your ruling planet — zips through Gemini from May 15 to 30, blessing you with the gift of gab. Promote, perform, propose! People just can’t say no to you now.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Go retro, Cancer. If you lived through the '90s the first time around, here’s hoping you saved a few cropped tops and flannel shirts from their en vogue days. If not, viva la vintage shops! This blast-from-the-past energy isn’t just style-based. Think back to a time you felt the most confident and revive that spirit, Crab. This may even involve a reunion with an old friend or love interest.

Leo (July 23-August 22)
Mean girl alert! The price of admission into that group could cost you the true friends you already have. Steer clear of exclusive circles if cattiness is part of the code language. Besides, Mercury brings a “down with the people” vibe from May 15 to 30. Making your motto “the more the merrier” could attract a fateful connection this weekend.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
If you’re feeling weighed down by responsibility, you might be leading the wrong flock. Another possibility? You aren’t doing a proper job of delegating. Redistribute the load this week and save yourself from burnout. Others will step forward as the star players in this quest. Let. Them. Help. You.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Shhh! Be discreet, Libra, especially when it comes to your works in progress. You want to be seen as someone who delivers, not the “all talk, no action” type. Buckle down and make it your mission to have something tangible to Tweet about before the weekend. With Mercury moving into your fame sector from Wednesday until May 30, you’ll be able to generate a major buzz for your talents!

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
The sky is the limit. Your drive to succeed is impressive this week, and the impresarios are taking note. Charm your way onto guest lists and into VIP rooms. The brass ring is yours for the taking. If you want to keep it, however, you’ll need to play nice….or nicer. Try not crush people in your climb to the top.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Nosy neighbor alert! Friends have a little too much to say about your life this week, but that’s kind of your fault. Stop opinion polling them and start making your own decisions. Midweek, Mercury could messenger lasting love to your doorstep. P.S. Your summer love could be someone who’s been lingering in the friend zone.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Yes, you should give that document another read before you shoot it off. The details could make or break a deal this week, both in professional and personal affairs. Spiff up presentations with sleek graphics and fonts. Let friends weigh in: does that e-mail sound beguiling or a wee bit desperate (eek!)? Polish. Edit. Perfect. Then, hit Send!

Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
You’ll feel thoroughly randomized early this week — trés frustrating! Relax. The universe has an agenda that simply doesn’t line up with yours. Go with the flow. You’ll discover a Plan B that trumps your initial vision. Mercury glamourbombs your world on Wednesday. Bye-bye messy braids and denim vests, hello shiny waves and statement heels!

Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Give your peeps room to breathe, Pisces. You might feel guilty about stepping back, but you do worry so. Trust that you are doing enough; in fact doing any more could heap pressure on a relationship. Tend to your own backyard…literally. Mercury calls forth your inner Jonathan Adler from May 15 to 30. Refresh your space with new décor. Plant something in a garden, terrace pot, or on your windowsill.
