Horoscope: May 24
Aries (March 21-April 19): Usually, when someone keeps you waiting, you see it as a sign of disrespect. Don’t take it personally, but do heed the message.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): You close an emotional distance. You embrace a loved one and forget about whatever it was that kept you apart.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): The problem you thought was handled comes sneaking back. Give this niggling bother a new name — a label that will allow you to laugh at the ridiculousness of it.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): Keep in mind that not everything has to be deeply profound. You’ll get a kick out of the silliness a playful person brings to your world.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You cannot buy self-esteem with money, and yet there is a cost. Right now, that cost is called “follow through.”
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll probably find yourself fighting for something you never intended to defend. You got all wrapped up in things, and now you care more than you wanted to.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Creative endeavors are wonderfully involving. Collaboration brings about a happy outcome.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Changes are happening fast. When the old way collapses, you switch gears. Get back out into the world and meet new people.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are part nurturer and part mediator, using your communication skills to acknowledge each person.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You demand a lot. You are willing to do whatever you ask others to do. They sense this and respect you.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If you’re afraid to talk about something, there’s a good reason. Maybe it’s a secret you were asked to keep or a situation that makes you feel guilty or powerless.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You have a holistic view of things now, and you see how each person’s contribution is vitally important to an organization’s success.
Today’s birthday (May 24): You’ll enjoy life, and it gets easier for you this year. In June, you’ll reduce expenses and increase your income. July brings an exciting meeting. You’ll form a deep connection with a gentle and patient someone in September. Scorpio and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 23, 10, 50, 39 and 28.
