Family or real estate get rocked April–June, but your position in love or money elevates in July. July 13– 30 are auspicious for intimate discussions, contractual negotiations and social engagements. Try focusing on the notion of creating and maintain heritage in whatever you do; this will help elevate intentions beyond immediate squabbles. Explore the music, cuisine and dancing of the June 11 Carnival Houston in Downtown which exemplifies Caribbean, Brazilian and New Orleans cultural ability to establish enduring legacy. Travel, learning and business negotiations keep you busy during May, but not without small hiccups in the plan which remind you to rely on your natural ability to think things through carefully. Luck is on your side after May 10 when Jupiter, planet of good fortune, moves ahead in your zodiac sign. You may feel like an adventurer spontaneously navigating twists and turns as you go for the gold. Take a lesson from Indiana Jones, film’s most famous adventurer, July 1–2 as the Houston Symphony celebrates the 35th Anniversary of this iconic film with a live performance of the soundtrack while the original movie reel plays on the big screen. A decision between personal ambitions and relationship desires is fast approaching by the fall, and for some Librans a relocation might even be a part of the process. Organizing financial matters to facilitate these decisions is key, so reshuffle accounting priorities and terminate any contracts which might restrict you moving forward. Libra rules beauty and relationships, so listen to Texas-born siren Selena Gomez’s heartfelt ballads June 15 at the Toyota Center. Her look and famous relationship journeys should speak to Libra’s own situation. Return of the ex! May is the time for letting go of relationships which have outlived their purpose, and for some this may mean revisiting a romantic scenario with a former flame for closure or to determine if there’s hope for love in the future. Notice what’s happening in romance around May 6 and trust your intuition about what to do next. Scorpio is the sensual sign of the zodiac, and summer is definitely going to sizzle. Turn up the volume with red-hot songstress Teyana Taylor who is signed with Pharrell Williams and Kanye West’s labels for her Unplugged Tour on May 5 she will definitely light your fire. may 16 | L O C A L 71
