Today’s daily horoscope for May 14, 2024

Just Before a Mercury Change

Those who have empathy, a conscience and a rounded understanding of concepts like indebtedness typically extend care and a sense of responsibility to their colleagues, teammates and employees. Not everyone shares the same suite of human neurology, though. Do things the formal and legal way, with contracts and the boundaries that keep everyone honest.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can’t plan everything, and even if you could, you would still leave room for fate to put a hand in. Today, you give fate an open-ended invitation, resulting in something uncanny and delightful.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The more you mull over an idea, the more you doubt it’s any good. It could, in fact, be an utter waste of time. But if you’re compelled to do it, there’s a reason — and that reason will set off a fortuitous chain of events.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your loved ones know that you love them whether they’re up or down, wrong or right. You’ll give your unconditional kind of love today and hold back the urge to say, “I told you so.”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re still figuring something out that will affect your days going forward. And though this seems like a crucial decision, what matters is not the decision itself but that you made it. Whichever way you go, you’ll be freer.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Dwell not on proving your rightness; it’s nobler to simply be right. Besides, the ones who matter will see clearly how you serve an idea or relationship. They will appreciate your dance with the truth at hand.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As an approachable leader, you’ll learn much more than the type who rule from on high. You’ll find out what motivates your team, and you’ll be in touch with the reality of the group — the pressures in play and what resources there are to draw on.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll advocate for those who need help and commit to seeing things through to their conclusion. However it turns out, this is an empowering experience. What you think of as a small act is heroic to someone else.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Treasure is often hidden in terrain that is also hiding trips and traps. But whether you risk the quest or not, at some point, everyone falls. More times means less fear of falling, and more practice getting back up.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When someone hurts your feelings, even if it’s only a little, this is worth taking on. Letting it go might leave you open for future slights. Small offenses are best dealt with in equally small countergestures of defense.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Stick to the main matter and work it until it’s done — no tangents, no switch-up in tools or company, no significant pauses. This is how you’ll make today the most productive one you’ve had in weeks.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t have a problem with authority, but you’ll only do what you’re told if the directive aligns with what you have in mind for yourself. You will not fulfill a request blindly just because it comes from the top.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll get evidence that you do your best work when you have a looser grip and let the chips fall as they may. A project is taking a different shape from how you’d originally envisioned it, and this is a good thing.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 14). You’ll answer the call to matters of depth and importance and be rewarded for your valor with adventures in the lighter side of life. Your impressive growth in a short amount of time will earn you a position. More highlights: a reframing of your story that makes new avenues accessible to you in social, professional and personal realms. Your people will make you proud. Virgo and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 22, 4, 11 and 16.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: In the mini-series based on the Renee Knight novel “Disclaimer,” Cate Blanchett plays a documentary journalist in a precarious position. Deeply complex and morally ambiguous characters are a specialty for the Taurus star with a well-aspected natal Neptune, indicating grace through emotional highs and lows. Her Mercury in the roving sign of Gemini makes her a keen observer and communicator of the human experience.
