Horoscope: May 9
Aries (March 21-April 19): Beware of those who would benefit from your thinking the solution is beyond you — for instance, a drug company, life coach, politician or makeup manufacturer.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Something you once wanted to do now seems like the opposite of fun. Perhaps the risk/reward ratio is askew, or perhaps your mood has changed.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): You do exactly what you say you’ll do. This is made even easier if you don’t say you’ll do anything, freeing yourself up completely.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): You’ll wind up at a magical destination, all because you listened, understood and followed your heart’s dictates.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): The distance between what they want and what you want may be too wide to bother with. You can’t get on the same page if you’re not even in the same book.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When it’s important to you, you’re strictly hands-on. You’ll impress someone with this attitude today.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You may wonder whether you should do the job yourself or enlist someone else to do it. The question will be answered in a way that you can’t help but take it as a sign.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You know which jobs are important and which are so crucial that it really doesn’t matter how long the job takes, only that it gets done.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take time to sit with loved ones around the table this evening, and your time together will be infused with humor and fun.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll take your personal feelings and put them directly into your work. That’s what makes it good, and it’s also what makes it challenging.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You could live in a palace and still feel poor inside. You realize this on a deep level and will make choices that only the truly rich would make.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Be mindful of your involvement. Step back, because perspective is necessary.
Today’s birthday (May 9): You’ll be serious about your fun this year. You will purchase tickets well in advance for special events and make plans that are bigger than any you’ve executed in the past. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 33, 15, 49 and 1.
