The time of the Gemini has arrived and anyone born from May 20 on is a Gemini.

Birthday people from May 16 to 19 are officially Taurus, but will be more relaxed and talkative then a Taurus born in mid-April or early-May.

The combination of Taurus and Gemini is refreshing and rewarding because they are practical and know how to handle money.

A true Gemini is often known as the butterfly of the Zodiac because they are capable of moving from one interest to another in a heartbeat. They love change and unless there is plenty of it, they quickly become bored. But one thing anyone born this week really enjoys is a good joke.

People born this week are: Megan Fox, May 16, 1986; Craig Ferguson, May 17, 1962; Tina Fey, May 18, 1970; Grace Jones, May 19, 1952;Cher, May 20, 1946; Mr. T. May 21, 1952; Apolo Anton Ohno, May 22, 1982; and Drew Carey, May 23, 1958.

If you happen to be a Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces (water signs) and have a plan you have been working on or at least considering, it might be wise to get serious. Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, will be in Cancer until July 16. Mercury will be retrograde from June 7 to July 1 so that eliminates most of June for a good start. So the best times for new starts are one day after the new moon until a week before the full moon. If you have a valid plan ready then it might be your time.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) It is time to be your charming self. You can be sure you will have every opportunity to be charming now. Venus in Aries and Mars in Libra this week will test your charm. So think before you open your mouth. And remember, you can charm the birds out of the trees if you try.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Your own needs will be in the spotlight this week. So be sure you are aware of your goals and any new direction you might be considering. If you decide to adopt a new philosophy in life, that takes time. Make sure you can achieve your goals while making the changes.

Get Planting: Spring Has Sprung

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Your life is about to turn upside down, and if you don’t slow down, you will regret it. So decide just what it is you want and then go for it slowly. There is no need to hurry because you will change no matter what happens. It is good and will work well if you go slowly.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) You have made a few decisions in the past and you are now paying the price. The lesson now is to learn that making quick decisions is not your cup of tea. You do not like the results. It is time to remember that haste in your life makes waste  –and you don’t like that idea. So stop.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) It is a perfect time to find yourself in a relationship bind, so watch yourself. To avoid some of the nonsense you have endured in the past just take one moment to remember. This will help you to avoid them in the near future. Think about it and then move on in a new love direction.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) This is no time to be thinking serious love. It is a time to eyeball your work goals. A romance here and there is fun, but your serious brainpower should be focused on your career opportunities. Set aside a few hours a week for romance and then concentrate on your need for success in the marketplace.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) There is plenty of planetary action moving your life around this week. So grab yourself a partner and head out to a party scene. Don’t look for chaos because it will find you. After all, this is your time to find your own place in the sun. This is a week that could bring some fast change to your life.

Restaurant Review: Undici

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) If there is a relationship that needs some tender loving care, this week would be a good time for it. Otherwise, try letting any problem go until you have more time and energy to deal with it. There could be a new and more rewarding turn in some personal business deals. Watch it closely.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Freedom of expression remains high on your list of relationship needs. So make sure to listen closely when new people come into your life. Make sure they are not too needy and, if they are, run the other way. Your travel schedule should increase in the coming months. That is why you need the freedom.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Life in the fast lane is never for you. So don’t even bother to give it a try. Your style should continue to be money and power – and that comes slowly and easily to you. A newcomer in your circle could prove to be interesting. Just keep your eye on the price of real estate.

Aquarius  (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) This is a great week to remember when one door closes, another one opens. Just keep looking for the open door and keep closing others. You are making a good change both inside and out. Keep your promise to yourself and stay out of relationships that go nowhere. You have had enough of them.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) Your new look will pay off big time once it is complete. So stay with the idea of the look and smile. Neptune can really put you in a tailspin, but only if you let it. This is a perfect time to start meditating and maybe some yoga. A new BFF could also be in the works, but continue to treasure your time alone.
