Free Daily Horoscope - May 2 2017
● General: Keeping things on a lighter note now paves the way to smooth communication. Of course, if you want to address some heavy stuff, that's your prerogative. Before you get into it, though, make sure you have what you want to say crystal-clear in your head -- thinking it through one extra time wouldn't hurt. And while you think your position is the only viable one, don't be surprised if you get an argument about it.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You're attuned to the flow of money and might be able to dig up some new cash where none existed before. So consider your income -- either as it pertains to your business, company or even just your own salary.
● Finances: Throwing money at your problems usually won't solve them, but this time the approach might actually help. New computers, programs, phones or apps will throw a bit of gas on your financial fire, and that's just what you need now.
● Love: Charming is your middle name today, so put it to go use when chatting with your current crush. No need to lay it on thick. Just be yourself and let your inner charisma do the work.
● General: Indecision may not be your usual state of being, but you can definitely make it look good on you. Spin it as an impulsive, exciting mindset in which anything goes -- the odder and newer, the better. Those around you will doubtlessly find it noteworthy and even thrilling when you start to diverge from your preset itinerary. And if they go along for the ride, well, they might be surprised by what you have to say.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You have stamina for days and you'll be able to set yourself to even the dullest drudgery with elan. So even if you're not ordinarily a workhorse, show off your chops.
● Finances: You're not yourself today. That could work to your advantage if circumstances are right, but you risk losing a lot of money if they aren't. If you're usually conservative in your spending, be ready for impulses to buy, buy, buy.
● Love: You're feeling great and it shows! Share your positive energy with someone who could use a serious dose of sunshine. Someone special may appreciate your smile today.
● General: Expect lots of motion in your world right now -- backward, forward, lateral, even exciting loop-dee-loop-type maneuvers. While it can be a bit chaotic, you're just the type who thrives amid chaos, converting it into fun and opportunities to shine. Watch for a chance meeting that will lead to a very intriguing discussion. This, in turn, will inspire the generation of some great ideas. Make some notes so you don't forget!
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Dig deeply beneath the surface when dealing with rivals or potential clients. You need to find the dirt on this one. Information is there that could be easily missed, but if you catch it, you'll win big.
● Finances: There hardly seems any point to all the talking when nothing is done afterward, but communication is always valuable even if there's not much follow through. You'll learn something you can put to good use today, even if no one else makes a move.
● Love: Your busy work schedule has left you wondering when you'll see your posse of pals again. Make a point to catch up with friends before they completely forget what you look like.
● General: Between the internal discussion you have going on and all the input you're getting from the outside -- not to mention a pending deadline or project -- you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed. Find a good way to blow off a little steam -- get some exercise, have a late night with a good friend, heck, maybe you could do both!
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: No matter what you do, the boss won't like it. Does that mean give up? Of course not -- just expect to have to make revisions. Your best bet is to tune out the negative noise.
● Finances: Your internal chatter runs the spectrum from sports announcer to heckler to confidential adviser. Your hardest job today is to separate the mindless cheering and jeering from the wise counsel.
● Love: Remember when someone broke your heart like a pinata? The next time your friend has to pick up the pieces, offer your empathy and hug. Sometimes that's all they need to feel whole again.
● General: It's time for party season to shift into high gear, and you're definitely at the fore of the festivities. Any social event you grace with your presence is lucky to have you; you're polite, funny and smart. Don't be surprised if you encounter people who match you in all areas -- make sure you get their contact info. You're making great new friends, maybe more.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: It's a good time to clear away old business to make room for tomorrow's opportunities. Wash your hands of unprofitable projects and connections. Settling lawsuits might work to your advantage.
● Finances: You have no time to sit around and chew the fat with your friends. Don't kid yourself that it's a brainstorming session. The work you need to be putting in is of the old fashioned variety. If it doesn't involve sweat, it doesn't involve money.
● Love: Be generous with your time when a friend needs your undivided attention. Nothing is more insulting than someone who offers help but doesn't concentrate on the details.
● General: You're good with the details now, and any logic problems are a total snap. When it comes to looking at the overall scenario -- at work, in a relationship, financially -- you're not quite as on top of it at the moment. Try consciously to do your best with this big-picture stuff now. It's quite possible you're not seeing the forest for the trees.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You have two missions: go in deep philosophically and kick butt productively. It might seem hard to think about long-term vision while pushing paper or processing data, but you can do it.
● Finances: You'll have to think on your feet today, so be sure your mind is clear and your body is relaxed and ready. You could make this a profitable day if you react swiftly and gracefully to whatever is thrown your way.
● Love: Revel in your hedonistic side by searching out the sensual nature you've been suppressing for way too long. No need to run naked through the streets, but now's the time to shed your shy exterior.
● General: A light-hearted chat may suddenly take a deeper turn now. You're in a sharing mode, and that includes some emotions you don't generally talk to anyone about. Whom you share with could be rather surprising as well -- and the connection you make or deepen may be unexpectedly sweet. The intensity might even have some romantic overtones -- but where you take it is up to you. Abandoning your boundaries could be premature.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Now's not the best time to initiate workplace struggles -- a lot more is already going on underneath the surface than you realize, and if you add fuel, it might erupt into something ugly.
● Finances: You have enough energy for two today. Unfortunately, it's not all good. You might make an important person mad today, but all is not lost. If you handle it well, you can salvage a good business relationship.
● Love: You long to experience ecstasy with someone new, but it won't happen if you never go out and socialize. Grab a friend and hit the trendiest hotspot to meet people outside your usual crowd.
● General: A little part of the big picture you're not taking into consideration right now could really trip you up. Read the fine print, watch out for hidden fees, check carefully between the lines and be hyper vigilant about the seemingly insignificant stuff. If it's an interpersonal situation, one of your best friends is waiting to help you see the angle you're missing.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Give up your attachments -- right now that's the best advice for your current situation. You'll free yourself for the new opportunities coming. Besides, it's high time you offloaded some of those old issues.
● Finances: Feeling especially cautious is a good thing. Your instincts are right on the money, so be sure to be careful in all your business dealings today. The temptation to be reckless is there but fleeting.
● Love: Today you'll be passionately inspired by a random event. Put your other tasks on hold and follow this big idea all the way to the end. Recruit someone you trust for help.
● General: A ghost from the past may make an appearance, just as you're getting comfortable with things. Adding your own collision of emotions on top of it equals a fairly overwhelming situation. It's time to rely on your support system -- family, friends, maybe a favorite coworker. You may feel a little out of control, but it's only temporary, and your people will help ground you.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: No schmoozing, no brainstorming: there will be room for fun later. It'll be hard, but you'll have to work on the boring stuff for now. Just make sure all the paperwork gets done right and on time.
● Finances: Not everything is under your control, but be sure to pay close attention to the things that are. There's no point in controlling the purse strings if you never use them to open or close the purse. Be judicious in your spending today.
● Love: Let classic romantic films inspire you to find the magic in the present. The plots might not be realistic but the passion is. Allow yourself to fantasize about the possibilities.
● General: Most people respond to a tragic situation by looking at the bright side. You're smart enough to know when it makes more sense to face reality. Get rid of the things that are muddying the waters and clouding your thoughts -- this might include unsolicited advice, excess chatter or unnecessary information. Let your mantra be 'Simplify, simplify, simplify,' and watch as clarity follows.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Your ability to get things done is almost limitless right now. You're feeling great and tackling piles and piles of work. Try to remember to take a few breaks and chitchat with your colleagues, just to keep things light.
● Finances: Your thinking is crystal clear today. If it were a vista, you'd be able to see for miles. Use that ability to make long-term investments, because your ability to think this logically won't last forever.
● Love: Borrow that same drive you have to succeed at work in your approach to dating. Make realistic goals towards what you want to achieve. Allow for mistakes and celebrate milestones.
● General: You're all over the map right now: socializing, errand running, and in all likelihood, some rather interesting romantic developments. Losing your head is one response, and so is getting so stressed out you can't enjoy the good elements of this busy season. Luckily your powers of communication are amped up, letting you vent in ways that keep those around you intrigued and amused.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Weirdness abounds -- so you can be in your element if you want. Even if you're the one who gets all the crazy customers or outlandish sales pitches, take on more of the same and you'll come out smelling like roses.
● Finances: You're in love with someone for their brain, not their money. Your conversations turn to intellectual topics today and the sparks fly. Don't let thoughts of cash intrude on your special connection.
● Love: Bored with your dating life? Spice it up by taking tango lessons. Dancing partners are never lacking and you might meet someone who shares your love for the beat.
● General: Being at home nesting probably sounds better to you than going out and tangling with the hustle and bustle, and you should definitely heed your instincts. Even if you get an invitation to go out and about, you probably won't be able to decide whether it'll be fun or not. Still, the moment you're home alone with your coveted peace and quiet, you'll probably pick up the phone to chitchat or invite someone over.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Let the drudgery take care of itself and get busy figuring out how to transform yourself, your workplace or even your industry. Creativity is everything for you now, and you can't lose no matter what you come up with.
● Finances: What seemed like a good idea yesterday suddenly doesn't seem like such a good bet. Don't be too busy with commitments you made in your head yesterday. Focus on what things look like today.
● Love: Your inner beauty shines brightly, today. Get out and about so everyone can fully appreciate your bubbly personality. Smiling goes a long way to making someone's day.
