Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 14

Posted: Updated:

Polls have come to dominate the media's horse race coverage of political campaigns. Pundits and reporters constantly use them to tell us who's hot and who's not -- but skip over the fact that plummeting response rates and variables like undecided voters and margins of error and often render these polls useless as anything other than lightweight diversions on par with horoscopes and political betting lines. Our HuffPollstrology chart helps keep you up to date on the latest poll results, along with the latest horoscope predictions, and the latest online political betting lines - and will hopefully help the polling junkies in the media keep polls in the proper perspective.

Get ready for a switch-back thought-ride over the next few days. It could be new music, new scents or an apparently outrageous suggestion from someone younger that starts the process. In business, it's likely to be something simple - and which doesn't challenge your technical abilities that throws your brain into another gear. Taurus friends and colleagues may be amazed.

Dramatic flair could bring you attention. The way you dress could get you noticed. It might also be that you see a business opportunity. The next move could be to persuade someone to join you. It's possible that your pulse could race for other reasons: romantically you could be on the way to a high.

Strong colours could have great impact. True, you might just be in the mood to paint the town red - extravagantly and expensively. It's as likely though that you'll be attracted to those who're willing to be bold. Flowers could have similar impact. This might be a cry from deep inside you. It may be that recent dramas have turned you on to the idea that not all drama is bad and that a little actually acts as a pick-me-up.

Neptune in aspect to the Sun today can be wonderful, sensitive, spiritual, and very creative, but not very practical. Sometimes it makes you worry about things that don't exist. It's important not to take whatever you feel for the reality. Keep your imagination under control and keep double checking that you are right along the way. You will believe the best of everyone, and only see what you want to see. This may not be helpful when it comes to practical matters.

If you expect miracles from other people, then you could end up feeling they have not fulfilled your hopes. Maybe you were seeing something which was not offered in the first place. Try to be realistic. You want to be even more helpful than usual, even charitable in the work you do, lending a hand where needed. But you may find your your energy levels and concentration low at times, so do not force the pace, or demand too much of yourself.

Push aside normal demands for the day and just idle along. You are not in a mood to get a grip or be confrontational. So leave practical chores to another day. You are struggling to make your dream of an ideal home and family life come true, and could be feeling a touch let down. What you imagined has not quite come to pass, not yet anyway. Try to sort out misunderstandings as soon as they occur with a little tact and forgiveness.
