The Herald

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
WEDNESDAY, MAY 15, 2013 You should be able to notice some steady improvement in several matters of considerable importance. Be content with the speed of your progress instead of trying to rush things along. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Although your prospects for personal gain look good, don’t expect to become a millionaire overnight. Be grateful for the profitable developments that come your way. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Be logical and practical about your financial dealings, but by the same token, don’t discount any of your hunches. Your intuition might be sensing something you’re missing. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A surefire way to guarantee that your friends will speak well of you is to speak highly of them. However, make sure what you say is sincere, not just flattery. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The race will go to the smart and not necessarily to the swift in careerrelated matters. Be sure you use your head wisely, so that you can be numbered among the winners. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Those that aren’t tuned into your wavelength will prove to be a big bore. Try to associate with companions whose likes and dislikes parallel yours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Timing is important when you are trying to promote something that could be financially beneficial. Wait to make your pitch until you have your prospect’s full attention. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you have to make a critical decision, get as much feedback from others as you can. Some of their input could reveal important aspects that you’ve overlooked. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- This is a good day to talk to the boss about some changes that you feel would help the operation. If it makes sense, your superior will be interested. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- When dealing with others on a one-on-one basis, “Judge not lest ye be judged” is a good adage to keep in mind. Your associates will emulate your behavior. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- When in conversation about critical decision, the debate won’t be won by the person who has the last word. Go for quality, not quantity. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You’re an extremely effective communicator, so don’t waste your time on idle chatter. Use your skills to charm people who can help advance your interests. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Someone with your interests at heart will show you a procedure that could strengthen your financial position. It would be smart to follow his or her suggestions.
