In the wonderful world of the Taurus, security is the one basic need.

Take away the home, the family and the very soil the Taurus lives on and you will have one unhappy person.

Taurus is loyal and they depend on loyalty from everyone who wants to be involved in the life and good times of this fixed-sign person.

Taurus will stay with a project, a relationship, a job until it is completed to their satisfaction. This brings the Taurus to the life lesson of any fixed sign. They must learn to let go with grace and honor.

Once a Taurus learns to let go, there is no telling how far they can go in life.

People who were born this week: Dr. Benjamin Spock, May 2, 1903; Bing Crosby, May 3, 1903; Audrey Hepburn, May 4, 1929; Tammy Wynette, May 5, 1942; George Clooney, May 6, 1961; Gary Cooper, May 7, 1901; Billy Joel, May 8, 1949; and John Corbett, May 9, 1961.

Once again emotions will start to ride high by Wednesday, May 7. After all, the next full moon in Scorpio will happen on Wednesday, May 14. So with the energy of Uranus, Pluto and Jupiter still pushing us around, the word is be careful. There could be plenty of road rage, so be kind and ignore the negative few that might cross your path.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) When it comes to the opinions of others concerning your life, it is now time to listen and then do your thing. Change for you is just around the corner, so start your planning and then make the move. You have problems when you move first and then make a plan. Just do the reverse and it will work.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Your business ideas can be very productive once you let go of the fear of failing. It is time to know that, if you have a well worked-out agenda, you can’t miss. Just don’t bring too many advisors along for the ride. Too many voices can ruin your creative ideas, so keep the extra folks to a minimum.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) This is a month when changes will be made. Either you will make them or they will be made by someone else. So get busy with the work that needs doing before you take off in a new direction. Even if you stay in place, you will mentally take off. So be ready for a new look from the inside out.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) One lesson you must have learned in the past months is you can change the pace, but you have to change the mind. The pressure you may be feeling this week is calling for a change of pace. Once you change the pace, your life will start to sparkle. Above all, you will love the new you.

Leo (July 21 to Aug.20) It is time to get on the same page as your pals, otherwise change your pals. You are facing some serious ventures that will make you plenty of money, so the motto should be don’t look back. You know the game plan. It is up to you to play it. A new friend could help swing things your way.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Your loyalty to your friends needs some review. If you get yourself tangled up with a negative character, you can expect negative results. The lessons of the past have always been to use your inborn discrimination. Try listening to wise advice instead of going off alone.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Avoid making judgments ­– even if you think you are right – because it won’t improve your popularity. Stick with what you know and leave judging to others. In that way you will make and keep more friends. Your spiritual life is really helping you to get where you want to go. Stick with it.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Life is too short to continue trying to please everyone. The answer is to spread yourself out and include more people in your life. In that way your good works will continue to grow and be known. Your social responsibility will continue to serve others in a good way.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) As far as this fire sign is concerned, you are happy when you are out of town. So keep moving and make a friend wherever you land. That is one way to make sure your life is going in the right direction. Find some fire signs – Aries and Leo – to hang around with. They understand you best.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20)  Anyone born under this Saturn-ruled sign, know about the money chase. And you should be right in the middle of the chase this week. You work hard and play even harder so the money chase is merely a game. You can win if you play fair and keep trying even if the going gets tough.

Aquarius  (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Keep marching to the beat of a different drum and you will stay happy. It is when you try to be like everyone else that you fall off the path. The goals you have set for yourself will be met if you just hang in there and listen to your inner self and no one else. You can’t be anyone but you. Look for a new love.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) If you are looking for a new romance or want to rekindle an old one, you are on the right track now. Your life is going your way and will continue as long as you stay away from artificial substances. That could be your Waterloo right now. So stay on the clear path.
