HOROSCOPE

Patient and determined, your natural abilities will give you several career opportunities to explore. Your compassion and patience would be well served in education, counseling or mediation. On the other hand, your business sense and independence could make you a successful entrepreneur, which was the path of Mark Zuckerberg who was also born on May 14th. If you take time to cultivate your artistic vision, you could be successful in media or film, not unlike George Lucas, another of your celebrity birthday twins.
