Your horoscopes for the week May 2 – May 8, 2016
Aries – March 21 to April 20
Are you an Aries spendthrift? With the New Moon stimulating your cash zone, you’re in the mood for a spontaneous spending spree. But is that a smart idea? When it comes to business matters, if you are patient [and put in the hard work required] then you’ll be able to capitalise on the lucky breaks that come your way later in the year. It’s all in the timing and preparation. Just remember Rams – with Mercury reversing through your cash zone – slow and steady wins the money race.
Taurus – April 21 to May 21
Bulls love their dependable routines. But you’ll be jolted out of pedantic predictability on Tuesday, as Jupiter shakes up your perfectly planned day in the most delightful way. New Moon Friday is a fabulous time to rejuvenate your physical appearance, plus revise your plans for the next 12 months. Adventure, travel and personal transformation are highlighted on the weekend, when you share good times with local friends and make some influential new international connections.
Gemini – May 22 to June 21
The astro-emphasis is on formal volunteer work, or just providing spontaneous assistance to people around you who are sick, in trouble, or less fortunate. So your mantra for the moment is from birthday great, Audrey Hepburn “As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” And there’s no room for negative self-talk. Mercury might be retrograde but you can still have fun and get a lot done, as long as you are patient.
Cancer – June 22 to July 23
Are you being a cranky, impatient Crab? With Mars and Saturn both reversing through your work zone, professional projects aren’t progressing as quickly as you’d like. This week’s stars encourage you to perceive delays as opportunities to review, revise and reboot. It’s also a great time to work on group projects and formulate goals for the future. But are you being too stubborn about a relationship issue? Perceptive Pluto urges you to orchestrate a subtle shift in attitude.
Leo – July 24 to August 23
Get set for a wonderful week, as Jupiter boosts luck and your confidence levels go through the roof. So it’s time to think big, especially when it comes to your professional plans for the future. Pluto also helps you power ahead with personal changes that have the potential to transform your life in stunning ways. You must be a brave Lion though! Your motto for the moment is from birthday great Harry Truman “You can always amend a big plan, but you can never expand a little one.”
Virgo – August 24 to September 23
With prosperity planet Jupiter jumping through your sign [until October] a personal project shows great promise. But don’t let negative self-talk hold you back Virgo. You have to be your Number One fan. If you don’t believe in yourself [and your talents] why should anyone else? Long-distance travel is likely over the next 12 months, as the New Moon activates your adventure zone. If you carefully nurture your international contacts, then the possibilities are endless.
Libra – September 24 to October 23
You have a natural knack for making others feel comfortable but this week, be extra careful when posting comments online. With Mercury retrograde [plus Mars and Saturn reversing through your social media zone] it will be very easy to send the wrong message to the wrong person. And are you having problems with a family member? Superficial solutions won’t work. If you examine the issue in a much deeper way, then you’ll know what to do. Trust your wise inner voice.
Scorpio – October 24 to November 22
Transformation is the name of the game this week, as Pluto [your patron planet] boosts your personal magnetism, and your ability to rise like a Phoenix from the ashes of a difficult situation. Or a close relationship has the potential to be reborn into a much more positive partnership. But you must release old grudges, let go of the past, and move into a bright new future. And you’ll find the right words – spoken at the right time – really can transform the lives of those around you.
Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21
The focus is firmly on your physical health, as the New Moon activates your wellbeing zone. So it’s the ideal time to shake up your daily routine, improve your diet, plus find fun ways to boost your fitness levels. Professional progress is also a priority, as Jupiter encourages you to power ahead with a challenging work project. [Nothing ventured, nothing gained!] And some singles will be attracted to a colleague, customer or client. Who said that work and romance don’t mix?
Capricorn – December 22 to January 20
Capricorns are practical people but it’s your creative side that can really take you places this week. So use delicious daydreams, creative visualisation and active imagination to help you set goals and plan for the future. Don’t dream small … make sure you go for gold! With Mercury and Saturn both reversing through your privacy zone, solitude is soul food for you at the moment. You’ll find solo pursuits – like meditating, reading and writing – will help settle your irritability.
Aquarius – January 21 to February 19
Aquarians can be very disorganised. This week’s stars encourage you to establish some sort of domestic routine, which will help you complete tasks in a more streamlined fashion. Thursday’s Moon/Uranus connection increases your impulsive side, and makes you more accident-prone than usual. So avoid rushing! From Friday onwards, you’ll start to see a family member in a fascinating new light. Perhaps it’s time to build bridges with loved ones and let bygones be bygones?
Pisces – February 20 to March 20
The New Moon highlights your travel and study zone. But with Mercury in retrograde mode, it’s time to plan a holiday or revise written work [rather than take a trip or launch a brand new project]. And with Mars and Saturn both reversing through your career zone, don’t take anything for granted at work. If you want to minimise problems, then check and double-check everything. You’re also keen to help someone in need but don’t promise more than you can actually deliver.
