Your Horoscope: Wednesday, May 20, 2009
Planetary Outlook: Wednesday, May 20, 2009: Today is a red-letter day with a series of planetary aspects that get most of us going, but could also cause some to feel under pressure. Right at the outset of the workday, Mercury retrograde squares Neptune, which could cause some confusion and difficulty when it comes to communication and writing projects. Re-read and edit any documents carefully. A difficult aspect from Venus, planet of money, and Saturn, planet of professional matters, could indicate some friction at the workplace. The Sun’s entry into Gemini this evening is a welcome burst of fresh energy and a revitalization of matters involving writing, transportation, and communication.
Today’s birthday: Bettys born this day have a dynamic year ahead full of changes. The key to success this year is to go with the flow and try not to resist changes over which you have no control. A blossoming romance or established partnership will deepen in intensity. You share your birthday with Cher, Joe Cocker, and Jimmy Stewart.
Taurus: Today is a fairly pleasant day. You may be looking forward to a special plan for this evening. As a result, concentrating on your work could prove difficult. You are in the mood for fun and diversion this evening. Have fun with friends or spend some one-on-one time with your romantic partner this evening. Just don’t stay out too late; you have a big day ahead tomorrow.
Gemini: You are in a detail-oriented mood today; you need everything to be exactly right, whether it involves a work project or your home environment. Avoid obsessing over minute details.

Set out to adjust your priorities over the next few weeks so that you can maintain balance in all areas of your life.
Cancer: This morning you are full of exuberance and optimism, and group activities are favored. This afternoon you may initiate an overhaul of your daily work routine.

Initiating these changes will improve all aspects of your life, so get to it!
Leo: This morning you’re disciplined and dedicated to taking care of serious matters. You may make real an abstract creative idea that’s been floating around in your head for a while. Come up with interesting and innovative ways to communicate your concepts. Tonight let your imagination run free and a current project may advance by leaps and bounds. New and interesting people may attract your attention tonight; socializing is one way to make progress professionally.
Virgo: Today you may be frustrated about your inability to bring associates on board with a new idea you are eager about.

You’ll be inspired creatively tonight, especially about a solo project you’ve been working on after work.
