Horoscope for May 5, 2012

By Bernice Bede Osol

Try not to get impatient in the year ahead if the fruits of your labors are much slower to ripen than you expected. Time is your ally, and as long as you don't upset the applecart, your crop could be greater than projected.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Unless you have the expertise, don't try to instruct another on how something should be done. Your suggestions could cause complications and make the situation worse.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Trying to be someone or something you really aren't could sour several people whom you're very anxious to favorably impress. Relax and just be yourself.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you find that most people tend to disagree with your opinions, you'd better stop and ask yourself who is in the wrong. You might be the one out of step.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- This could be one of those days when you're far more negative than you realize. Unless you lighten up, it isn't likely you'll find too much to like or enjoy.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Unless you are extremely frugal, economic pressures could come to bear. Buy only that which is essential and don't get anything on an installment program.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- In order to avoid some petty conflicts within the household, you'll need to be extremely tactful when dealing with family members. It will be hard to retract any harsh words.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Take care not to unwittingly pass on any harmful information about a friend that is predicated on hearsay. If what you say ends up being taken as gospel, you'll be held accountable.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Even if you are normally a good manager of your funds, things could easily go amok if you give in to your wants. Try harder to keep you accounts in order.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Normally you're the first one to realize that there are no shortcuts to success, so don't start banking your hopes on wishful thinking. Be prepared to work hard for what you want.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It behooves you to try to see things from the other guy's perspective, not just your own. You might even be surprised at how much you learn from the fresh view.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Avoid being drawn into something of questionable value in which the burden is being disproportionately placed on you. First, make sure it's worth it.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don't look for others to jump in and help you achieve your aims -- it won't happen. It's one of those days when you're all on your own, so saddle up and get going.
