my new mercury retrograde horoscope thingie… yeah. I think I signed up for this. 😛

Squaring some things away may be the name of the game for you today- mind your priorities and you’ll be just fine. Though communication mishaps may occur, if you breathe a bit, before you respond- in addition to those Merc. Retro Gemini action, there’s a bit of Venus and Cancer influence to help you draw on those warmer feelings under the aggravation that may help you to know what to say, in a much better way. Just be sure you’re taking that step back and not reacting. Respond, not react is the way to go throughout any Mercury retrograde cycle- but especially in Gemini.

Tuesday, the 19th of May, 2015 is the 139th day in 2015 and in the 21st calendar week.
General Events:
National Asian and Pacific Islander (API) HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
May 19, 2015 in the World
National Asian & Pacific Islander HIV/AIDS Awareness Day was first observed in 2005. The Banyan Tree Project plans and implements this observance with support from the CDC. The 2015 theme is “Saving face can’t make you safe. Talk about HIV for me, for you, for everyone”.
Being silent about HIV can contribute to HIV infections. HIV stigma hurts individuals and the community as a whole. People are discriminated against, disowned from families, and fired from jobs. But by understanding its cause and listening to others’ experiences, we can help end HIV stigma through knowledge and action.
It all starts with talking about HIV and listening with compassion. The more knowledge you have about HIV stigma, the easier you can prevent it and help those who are living with HIV.

National May Ray Day
May 19, 2015 in the USA
Celebrated each year on May 19 is May Ray Day, an “unofficial” National holiday. This is a day to be outside, enjoying the sunshine and soaking up some rays.
There are many ways to enjoy the outdoors and the warmer days as summer approaches.  A picnic in the park, a walk along the river, volleyball in the sand, swimming at the beach, gardening, or just lounging on the deck are just a few ideas on how you may choose to spend National May Ray Day.
If perhaps the weather does not cooperate and it is cloudy or rainy where you live, the alternative would be to look at photographs of sunshine and imagine yourself feeling the warmth of the suns rays.

National Devil’s Food Cake Day
May 19, 2015 in the USA
“Devil’s Food” cake is rich, divine chocolate cake.  It differs from a regular chocolate cake by its darker color and tends to be more moist and airy.    A difference in preparing the “Devil’s Food” cake is that hot or boiling water is used as the main liquid.  Cocoa is typically used in the batter, as opposed to chocolate, and coffee is added for a special flavor.  A rich chocolate frosting usually accompanies the cake.
It is believed that the “Devil’s Food” cake was invented in the United States in the early 20th century.  There is a recipe for a “Devil’s Food” cake as early as 1905.
It may be that this cake was named for its contrast to the snow-white “Angel Cakes” that were being made prior to the “Devil’s Food” cake.
“Devil’s Food” cake is one of the country’s most popular cakes.
