Horoscope for May 7, 2012

By Bernice Bede Osol

The more knowledgeable you become in your chosen field of endeavor during the next year, the greater your possibilities for success. Do what you can to prepare yourself well, and opportunity will knock loudly.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Watch how you phrase your requests, or they could come out sounding more like demands than appeals. Try to see things from the others' perspectives.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Strive to be a bit more comforting than annoyed if your mate is in a grumpy mood. Calming words could be the elixir that would work wonders on fraying nerves.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The only way you'll have anything worthwhile to show for your time is to apply industry, not apathy. Nothing will get done if all you do is voice excuses and neglect your duties.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A lot of discipline will be required in the management of your resources. To make matters worse, an additional dosage may be necessary in the handling of others' funds as well.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Unless you're careful, you could stoop to taking out your frustration on those for whom you care the most, only because you know they're the ones who'll take it without complaint.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don't attempt to use flattery, subterfuge or insincerity when trying to make a pitch for something you want. Those you deal with will be able to perceive your motives.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If your judgment is based on pure emotion, you may have trouble distinguishing between those to whom you should be generous and those who don't deserve anything.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Be careful that you don't wrongly cater to someone who never has and never will do you any good, while barely acknowledging one who has helped you out previously and would again.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don't let yourself become entranced with someone who is already committed. You'd be asking for trouble if you trespass in forbidden territory.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Treat all business endeavors seriously, but especially those involving people you know socially. Unless that distinction is clearly marked, you'll be asking for trouble.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Should you find that your companions are only partially in accord with your purposes, causing you to attempt to manipulate them into agreement, they'll be even more disenchanted.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Persons who are under your directives might need some skillful handling. Unless you can find a way to inspire them, they aren't likely to accomplish much of anything.
