Free Daily Horoscope - May 1 2017
● General: Your forays into business are going to be an adventure, to say the least -- and keep in mind that it takes time for any new venture to take off and flourish. Any possessions you're trying to sell are moving slowly, and it's going to take some better advertising to move things along. Get your creativity involved, and you will see some impressive results soon. Your entrepreneurial spirit is inspiring people around you, so it's important to show them you can make it.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: It's a good time for inventory and other means of taking stock. Take your time and consider every asset individually -- you might be able to put some to better use.
● Finances: You want things to move fast, and details just seem to slow things down. You have to deal with them, though -- that or trip over them in your hurry. The choice is yours and the most lucrative one should be obvious.
● Love: You're likely to be bounding out of bed, freshly inspired and looking fantastic. A brunch date goes great. By later in the day, plan for some downtime -- check your email, catch up with an old friend on the phone.
● General: You're feeling pretty good today, fed by the positive comments you've been getting about your appearance and your style. Build on that momentum and get ready to take a few more fashion risks. It's a great time to unleash your artistic impulses, preferably in a joint venture with someone you can relate to. So a shopping trip with a favorite friend is a great way to build your wardrobe, exercise your creativity and have fun!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Don't peer too far ahead into the future. It's a great time to take stock of what you have on hand and think about how you can use it in the coming weeks.
● Finances: Racing thoughts are better than a racing heartbeat. Don't waste time; fix the problem that is causing all the inner turmoil. Putting it off will only make things worse emotionally and add interest to an existing obligation.
● Love: You can't hurry love, or so they say, but your energy's definitely picking up right about now in a very promising way. Put the pedal to the metal by increasing your opportunities to meet new people, online and in real time!
● General: Every one of your questions deserves an answer, but you'll have to go and find it yourself. Today, heed your curiosity and seek the source of the mystery. Ask that person why they value you in their life, and then you will get a better idea of why they are in yours. Then ask yourself what you're most interested in -- whatever captures your imagination is something that deserves further exploration.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Some roadblocks coming up won't be nearly as threatening if you smooth them out beforehand. Settle down your troops and work out all the issues. Don't be afraid to take action.
● Finances: It's not the best day for getting anything concrete accomplished, but you will have the chance to come up with a lot of good ideas if you're open to the opportunity. A casual conversation generates the kind of notes on napkins that are valuable blueprints.
● Love: Get online or on the phone this morning -- whether you're recapping recent romantic stuff with a friend or chatting with a certain somebody, you've got a way with words. Later, lines of communication won't be as open.
● General: You'll have all the energy and opportunity you need to socialize like a pro today, although you might not have as much time as you'd like. It's all about brief, pleasant interludes and snappy comebacks right now. You can save the long, drawn-out conversations for another day. The experiences you have with other people now might feel less substantial, but they are still just as effective at keeping you connected.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You might feel the extra push to get work done early next week, but make sure to take your time and get it all done right, even if it is just barely under the deadline.
● Finances: You're feeling wild on the inside without ever stepping out of character. That's a good thing, because you have a lot to tackle today and none of it would benefit from howling at the moon. Keep it all buttoned up as you go about your business.
● Love: Hold off on communication of the romantic variety (and maybe the platonic and familial, too) this morning -- you're quick to react, but also quick to change your mind. Later on, your powers of persuasion are amazing!
● General: Your tenacity is a powerful force today, and it will help you make lots of progress. Just be sure to fold in some fun and make time to touch base with a friend you haven't seen in a while. You will have time to finish what you've already started, without having to shut yourself off from the real world! It's important to keep a balance in your life between using your brain and using your heart.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Make sure to stretch out beyond your comfort zone and be ready to strike out in a bold new direction. You're reaching a defining moment in your career path and it's time to take some serious action.
● Finances: You get a wake up call, in the best possible meaning of the phrase. Talking to friends makes you realize just how far you've come and it puts your financial troubles in perspective. You're making progress in all the ways that matter.
● Love: Practically anything's a blast through the early part of the day, and when you're having so much fun, it's easy to meet new people along the way. Say hi! By later on, a little R and R is in order.
● General: You cannot be everyone's best friend -- in fact, you can't even expect everyone to like you. So today stop putting so much effort into pleasing someone who clearly cannot be pleased, at least by you. You two are just not compatible, and there's nothing wrong with that. If everyone liked everyone, the world would be a very boring place. Be grateful for your friends and stop worrying about the ones you don't have.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You'll be exactly in sync with your colleagues over the next few days, so take advantage of the situation and spread your vision like a computer virus. A quick business trip might be on the agenda.
● Finances: You don't have time to get down to the details today. You're too busy dodging bullets and putting out fires to be that thorough. If you can make it until sunset, consider it a good day.
● Love: If you've got some sort of romantic goal in mind, this is your golden opportunity to re-envision it in a brilliant way. Caution: This process may involve reorganizing the contents of your heart. Are you ready?
● General: You are more attractive than you realize, and someone is going to make it their job to help you understand that today. Be happy and gracious when someone calls you beautiful. You should believe them -- after all, why would they lie? Your self-esteem has been taking a hit lately, mostly because you are listening to the tiny voices of doubt in your head. Stop it -- those voices are full of lies.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You'll be feeling better than you have in quite a while, and the good vibe is infectious. Coworkers and clients will get a contact high from your enthusiasm next week -- exploit it in subtle negotiations.
● Finances: It's quality, not quantity, that really matters and that applies to all things today. You can have a lot going on but still feel vaguely empty and dissatisfied. All the money in the world won't buy you entrance to the land of deep satisfaction.
● Love: Love's full of contradictions, even a little more now than usual. Can you look seriously at things romance-related while also keeping them light? Don't get ahead of yourself -- or of a certain someone.
● General: You love to be daring as much as the next person, so why not kick things up a notch today? Fuel the excitement growing in one of your newer relationships by pushing the envelope. Go the extra step of making your desires not only known but also irresistible! Your partner is ready, willing and able to fulfill all your wishes. But beware: When you dare them, they have every right to double-dog dare you right back!
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: One of your most significant work relationships is about to go through the wringer. If you're flexible over the next few days, you can straighten it out and even profit from this sticky situation.
● Finances: There is no such thing as a minor detail today. Every last one of them leads to something unusual if not downright extraordinary. So don't let yourself get lulled into thinking you can only focus on the more glamorous aspects of money today.
● Love: Your already intense powers of passion are looking like they're extra-strength now, and using them wisely involves self-control and a sense of responsibility to the forces of love. Don't make moves randomly now.
● General: You can oblige people today if you must, but don't be an out-and-out doormat. Make sure your opinions are clear -- they need to know where you stand. You can go along with the group plans, and it might be in your best interest to do so right now, but that doesn't mean you should keep quiet about how you would do things differently.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: No matter what your line of work is, you'll act as accountant over the coming week. Roll up your sleeves and go over all the details of your current projects with an eye toward making it all fit together seamlessly.
● Finances: Someone is trying to confuse you, but even being aware of it won't stop them from running rings around you. You just can't think deeply about anything today so don't bother competing on an intellectual level.
● Love: An excursion beyond the everyday awakens you now, so get out and about to experience something unusual. You may just meet someone intriguing, if the stars have their way -- do your part to make it happen!
● General: It's an excellent day to lead people to new places in their lives. You're feeling restless today -- you have been good long enough, and you are itching to break out and run. This could be the start of a long phase when you'll want to test your boundaries and see just how far you can push things. The good news is your irreverence will help give other people a reason to rebel and make changes for the better.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Your creative side is sparking like crazy, but even if you don't get the chance to indulge it today, you'll generate some killer ideas for the coming week and into the future. Everything is good.
● Finances: The people around you have a devil-may-care attitude about their money. You're not exactly in it for the long haul yourself, but don't let their flighty attitudes invade your own way of investing. Clear your own thoughts before you proceed.
● Love: If work's on your mind, check your email or check in this morning, because by later in the day, some rather un-work-related opportunities can come your way. The chance for romance is amped up now!
● General: Interesting news will come from some unexpected places today, and surprises will coming from many different directions. These treats will have a wonderful way of speeding up the day and reminding you that you just never know what the universe has in store for you. So get ready for just about anything -- you'll be surprised at what comes out of peoples' mouths when you're really listening.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: The action has definitely slowed down at the office. Try to stave off boredom by digging up old files or correspondences. You'll discover a gold mine of information and new possibilities waiting to be recycled and re-implemented.
● Finances: Everything you do doesn't have to be new or unique. The middle-of-the-road approach works in the long run, too. Sparks won't fly when you make the right choice today, but know your pay-off will sparkle some day down the line.
● Love: It's all about discoveries now. A little extra exploration makes a big difference now, in who you meet and in what you learn about them -- as well as about yourself. Go on, ask that question that's on your mind.
● General: Get clear about what you see. Just because illusions aren't real doesn't mean they're not powerful. To get the motivation you need right now, picture your success. Imagine what your life will be like once you have reached that summit. Visualize the future, and be sure to picture a beautiful one! Sometimes your subconscious needs your conscious mind to provide it with a map.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Words are especially important over the coming week, and you can create the perfect pitch or resume if you apply yourself. Your gift for selling yourself and your business is about to peak.
● Finances: You may think you have a sure thing -- until you get close enough to examine it. Then you're suddenly not so sure after all. Don't make a big investment based on anything you can only see through the mist.
● Love: You might just want to dream away the early part of the day -- watch for messages from your inner self. Later on, affection, yet more intuition and (yes) romance are favored by the stars. Feel the love!
