May 4th, 2015

Overview

The willful Sun makes a square to excessive Jupiter today. Being overly self-indulgent can cause financial and romantic problems. Try to exercise moderation. People born under the signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius especially may be tempted to binge. Instead of indulging in excess, it may be better to enjoy simpler pleasures. Reading, communing with nature and spending quality time with a pet can be effective ways to ignore cravings. It's also important to fulfill obligations and do chores. Neglecting work could cause big problems for relatives and colleagues. Being cheerful and cooperative will pave the way for better relationships at home and work. Looking ahead, affectionate Venus will enter nurturing Cancer. Caring for loved ones can be tremendously rewarding, especially for people born under the signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

Aries

sun_in_aries_68
You're hot with rage right now, and in dogged pursuit of the person or situation that has wronged you. These are intense feelings you're having, and maybe you're in the right. Still, this isn't a good combination of emotions, and you need to get yourself under control. Take some deep breaths and calm down. You can figure out a subtler approach, one that will actually help you get what you want.

Taurus

sun_in_taurus_53
A fever consumes you now. You're hot under the collar, or you have a bee under your bonnet. Comments that normally wouldn't even register on your radar are now like burning cinders. But don't allow yourself to get sloppy with this. Instead of getting all worked up over nothing, channel your energies toward a relationship or a project you really believe in. At least then you'll know it's worth it, even if things get a little messy.

Gemini

sun_in_gemini_36
This could be a long day. You want what someone else has. Why haven't you gotten yours yet? It's so frustrating to wait, not knowing whether your due will ever come. You'll just have to wait your turn, no matter how intense your sense of need might be. It's just not your time yet. Or maybe all this excess wanting has actually prevented you from being satisfied. Try focusing on what you have instead of what you lack.

Cancer

sun_in_cancer_43
You're imbued with rising self-confidence today. You're filled with a deep, elemental sense of your own power. Being self-assured makes you even more appealing and trustworthy than you already were. And here's something you may not be aware of: Someone in your life truly believes in you. Whatever you want to accomplish, you can make it happen now, because you have all the energy and support you need.

Leo

sun_in_leo_37
Today you could be a little bit self-absorbed. That isn't a criticism, by the way; it's simply a fact. You aren't in the most confident frame of mind now, so it's natural to become more preoccupied with your own issues. Remember when you get all worked up, judging other people's behavior isn't a good idea. Maybe it's you not them who needs an attitude adjustment.

Virgo

sun_in_virgo_78
If a relationship or something important seems up in the air now, don't worry. You don't need to make a decision right this second. It's perfectly fine to reserve judgment for another day, so you can investigate things a little further. There's still plenty under the surface that you don't know about yet, and you can learn a lot through some simple sleuthing and fact-finding. In fact, this could turn into a fun project today. Don't be afraid to lose yourself in the joy of discovery.

Libra

sun_in_libra_75
Don't worry if problems come up today at home or in your work. You'll manage them like a champ. You're all about balance, and that's the talent you should rely on now: keeping things fair and within the bounds of reason. Everywhere you go and everything you do, you're making improvements, whether you're conscious of doing so or not. This must be a measure of the passion you feel for the life you lead.

Scorpio

sun_in_scorpio_2
Passion and intensity come bubbling up from the depths of your soul. Something is really moving you now. Whatever it is, your subconscious tries to seize control today, and turn all your careful plans into the work of pure instinct. Let your intuition guide you toward that fantastic future you've envisioned for yourself. Stop trying to control all the factors and just go with the flow of the universe.

Sagittarius

sun_in_sagittarius_39
Today, try not to be discouraged if your activity and output might seem to lead nowhere. That doesn't mean it isn't working. Of course, if you truly think you're putting in good effort but reaching zero results, it may be time to rethink your approach. Perhaps it's time to focus on strengthening your foundation. Usually, when a relationship or a project isn't working out, it's because some core issue needs to be addressed.

Capricorn

sun_in_capricorn_51
Your hidden reserves of energy are impressive on any day, but right now, they're phenomenal -- vast and seemingly limitless. Thus, it's time to access that energy and apply it to something that means a great deal to you. Your mood and intentions are aligned with the universe, and you've got a great chance now at success. Another day of persistence will bring brilliant results, and you'll be glad you kept trying.

Aquarius

sun_in_aquarius_60
Revolutionary ardor is burning within you, and you're rallying the troops to fight. But what's the problem, exactly? More to the point, are you sure you're starting an important movement and not just instigating trouble? Because today, it might be hard to tell the difference. For that reason, do only what's necessary. If, in a few days, you still believe some part of your life is in need of radical change, then you can set about making that happen. But not right now.

Pisces

sun_in_pisces_57
Gain mastery over your dreams and visions. You're in a state of lucid dreaming: Whatever you envision becomes reality, if you believe in it wholeheartedly enough. If you invite beauty and creativity into your life, they'll come. But it isn't magic that creates this phenomenon, it's pure and simple science. Put your thoughts toward positive projects and intentions, and you'll be that much closer to making those things materialize.
May 5th, 2015

Overview

The empowering Sun forms a trine to transformative Pluto today. This is a great time to launch a self-improvement program, especially for Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. A sensible diet or exercise routine may yield impressive results. This is also a perfect opportunity to break bad habits and establish good ones. Adopting a more positive outlook is the best way to attract love, luck and career success. Opening a savings account is also favored. Get into the habit of putting a set percentage of each paycheck into an investment portfolio. Even a tiny amount will add up to a handsome sum over time. Looking ahead, the structured Capricorn Moon will make supportive angles to Neptune and Pluto. This is a good time to take practical steps toward realizing a dream. The Moon will also form a square to Uranus, warning against hasty decisions.

Aries

sun_in_aries_68
It's a great day to launch a new endeavor. You have the brash confidence needed to push forward into the unknown. Even if you have no idea what you're doing, that's no problem. You'll just make it up as you go along! Not many people have that kind of daring, you know. You should definitely use it for all it's worth. You'll learn from making mistakes and blazing a new trail.

Taurus

sun_in_taurus_53
Rules and limits get tossed right out the window today. Some folks love this unbounded energy. But it might make you feel a little unsettled. After all, your whole perspective is based on knowing things in concrete terms. When everything is left open, and all decisions are yours to make, it can be disconcerting. But try to enjoy it. A taste of this sort of freedom may leave you craving more.

Gemini

sun_in_gemini_36
Mentally speaking, you're extra flexible -- and today, perhaps a little too much so. Right now you're willing to believe anything, as long as it holds your interest. This is great for expanding your mind and wrapping it around new, unfamiliar concepts. But when it comes to gullibility, you're wide open to anyone who wants to take advantage of the fact that you're easily taken in. A smidge of skepticism is a healthy thing.

Cancer

sun_in_cancer_43
On a day when lots of other people's instinct is to head out of town, yours might be to stay home. The very phrase 'parts unknown' could make you nervous! Or maybe you're just comfortable enough in your own, familiar surroundings that you feel no need for new experiences. But that's just the reason why you should seek out something new and different. You'll gain a fresh perspective.

Leo

sun_in_leo_37
You have a deep sense of faith in the world today, and in yourself. You trust yourself to handle any plot twist that arises, any unexpected turn in the road that may appear. Where does all this confidence come from? That doesn't matter -- just use it and enjoy it while it lasts! This is the kind of day when a seeming mistake could turn out to be the luckiest move you ever made.

Virgo

sun_in_virgo_78
Be a little bit spontaneous today. Go on, let your hair down! There's no reason life has to roll along in exactly the same groove every single day. The current cosmic energy is perfect for a little adventure. Instead of sticking to your usual routine, seek out new faces and experiences. Challenge yourself to embrace the unfamiliar and unexpected. You're actually quite flexible, and now you have a chance to use that quality.

Libra

sun_in_libra_75
The big picture becomes apparent to you today. Suddenly, something broad in scope, such as a philosophical concept or a universal truth, becomes clear. It's like the sun dawning over a valley. The truth is laid out like a tapestry of interwoven facts and theories that finally make sense. Has your mind expanded in the space of a day? You've certainly reached a new level of appreciation for life.

Scorpio

sun_in_scorpio_2
The thrill of excitement beckons today. You're extra curious and you crave mental stimulation. This can be found in a variety of places and sources. New acquaintances have a lot to offer. They represent a wealth of experiences and knowledge that's as yet unknown to you. You could make a new friend by the end of the day. After all, everyone likes answering questions that make them feel fascinating!

Sagittarius

sun_in_sagittarius_39
You're in your element today, and your optimism is off the charts. Whatever you can dream up, you have complete and utter faith in yourself to carry it out. Of course, you may not end up manifesting all your dreams and visions. But that won't set you back in the least. You're flexible enough to roll with whatever life sends your way. You're most comfortable when you aren't restricted by a plan.

Capricorn

sun_in_capricorn_51
It's a great day to get out of town, or at least away from familiar surroundings. Don't worry about making a plan. Spontaneous acts are favored now. You could surprise yourself by actually having fun without a map or a list of places to go. Following your whims or instincts certainly makes life more interesting! Be flexible and trust yourself to go with the flow, and you'll have more fun than you could imagine.

Aquarius

sun_in_aquarius_60
You're soaking up every bit of knowledge available today -- and that's a lot. Your mind might be spinning with everything you're learning! And you wouldn't have it any other way. A big question may be answered for you now, as you broaden and define your own values or faith. Or perhaps big questions are just beginning to be asked. This is an extremely important phase of your personal journey toward truth.

Pisces

sun_in_pisces_57
Your interest in new people and experiences soars through the roof today. You want to venture out into the great unknown and make it your own. Take a trip, whether scheduled or impromptu. You'll have a wonderful time processing all the fresh sights, sounds and flavors. If a vacation isn't an option, there are plenty of ways to step outside your routine right in your own home town.
May 6th, 2015

Overview

The adventurous Sagittarius Moon forms trines to both Jupiter and Uranus today. An impromptu trip could be in the cards. Traveling to an unusual destination may be exhilarating. A generous relative could purchase plane tickets or help with hotel expenses. Alternately, the opportunity to stay with a friend or relative who lives abroad could become available, especially for Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Buying appliances is also favored under this influence. Search for good deals on dishwashers, refrigerators and stoves. You could get a significant discount if you buy several machines at once. Being able to do household chores quickly and easily will be a welcome change of pace. Looking ahead, mental Mercury will make a square to deceptive Neptune. Daydreams could interfere with work. Meeting deadlines could be challenging.

Aries

sun_in_aries_68
Adventure, anyone? You need a lot of space to pursue your interests today, so avoid restrictive people and situations. Too many rules or expectations will just have you rebelling like a teenager! It's a lot better to seek the freedom you crave and channel that energy to explore. Find positive ways to flout the rules. Be your daring self, and take risks that pay off. And have a great time doing it!

Taurus

sun_in_taurus_53
Big, broad-reaching concepts take center stage today. Your values and principles may come into play in a way that's unexpected. If so, do your best to roll with it. Spontaneity may or may not be your strong point, but right now it's your golden ticket! When you let go of your own expectations you're free to enjoy life more. Surprising truths may reveal themselves to you. Be ready for their wisdom!

Gemini

sun_in_gemini_36
You're open to just about anything and anyone today. That's a good thing, since it ensures that you're also open to learning something new. The current energy is all about discovery and strokes of insight. Your mind feels wonderfully full and deliciously stimulated! You may find it hard to focus on one thing at a time, but no matter. Live with your eyes and ears open. Make sense of it all later.

Cancer

sun_in_cancer_43
Get ready for an exciting day today. Of course, you might not want any excitement. You can do without unexpected thrills, or so you think! But being a little bit adventurous will take you far. Consider the realm of your own thoughts: Stretching your idea of what's normal, acceptable or true opens up a whole new world. At the very least, it's fun to play around with ideas and see what develops!

Leo

sun_in_leo_37
It's a great day to be spontaneous. You have a taste for impromptu activities and whimsical pursuits. What fun, to chase down your impulses as they arise! And freeing yourself in this way is a wonderful use of the current cosmic energy. If you can take a trip someplace new, or plan one for the future, so much better. Even just daydreaming about the places you'd like to go is fun and productive.

Virgo

sun_in_virgo_78
Free your mind today. Break out of your own standard ways of thinking about and perceiving the world. Gain a new perspective, preferably a broader one than you're used to. This may feel challenging. But good things will come from making the effort to be extra tolerant and flexible. And flexibility is in your nature. Put it to use now, and see what interesting developments occur.

Libra

sun_in_libra_75
Today you're interested in everyone you encounter and every idea that occurs to you. You'll greet each and every one in the spirit of inquiry. And that's the best way to tap into today's open-minded, seeking energy. You won't limit yourself to just one way of thinking or just one path. You're just too curious for that! And instinctively, you realize that your best luck will come from diversifying.

Scorpio

sun_in_scorpio_2
Your mind turns today from personal, emotional matters toward more global issues. Your vision turns outward and your mind opens. At least, that's the best potential of the current influence! Make an effort to step outside your usual perspective and experiences. This is no time for narrow thinking or routine activities. Instead, seek fresh experiences. Tap into your ideals and see if you can manifest them in real life.

Sagittarius

sun_in_sagittarius_39
Flexibility is one of your best characteristics. It's also one of the traits that sometimes complicate your life. Today is a case in point. You're wonderfully open to any twist or turn life presents. On the other hand, it's hard to focus on the task at hand. And following a particular path, well -- forget it! But maybe this is a blessing in disguise. Going with the flow can take you to some pretty wonderful places.

Capricorn

sun_in_capricorn_51
Venture outside your carefully structured life. Court experiences and people unfamiliar to you. This may not be your thing, but that's exactly the reason to do it. Today is perfect for broadening your horizons. Take a risk of some kind! Knowing you, it will be one you've calculated carefully. And no matter how it turns out, it's important to remember it's still an opportunity for learning.

Aquarius

sun_in_aquarius_60
Today your inner philosopher comes out to play. And yes, this should be a fun and lighthearted process! That applies even if you're exploring serious topics. After all, developing a new theory brings a burst of mental stimulation. You're all about interesting mental processes. And what's more fun than finding out whether your ideals hold up in the real world? Use today's cosmic energy to gather ideas or test out a theory.

Pisces

sun_in_pisces_57
The world is full of fascinating people and ideas today. Lessons and insights lurk around every corner. Or maybe you're just more open to them than usual. Either way, the sense of discovery that fills you is exciting in the extreme. Don't pressure yourself to draw any firm conclusions just yet. Right now should be all about learning, testing and seeking. Trying to act decisively is just a losing battle!
