Daily Horoscopes for May 6


General Daily Horoscope


Today’s friendly Gemini Moon enables us to enjoy ourselves, even if we are quite busy. Though we may feel the continuing stress of so many planets in just-do-it Aries, we are able to accomplish a lot without much effort as the Moon forms supportive sextiles to the Aries planets, giving us much-needed cosmic assistance. Our attention turns toward nurturing our home and family this weekend as the Moon shifts into reflective Cancer at 10:31 pm EDT.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you won’t likely take no for an answer today, you may need to do some fast talking before you receive the approval you are seeking. You might become frustrated if you’re caught up by circumstances you cannot control. On one hand, you shouldn’t give up too soon, for persistence will probably bring you what you want. On the other hand, remaining flexible is essential because your needs are changing faster than you realize.



Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You need time to absorb the changes you have recently experienced, but one distraction after another now can keep you hopping. Thankfully, the energy should begin to settle down by tomorrow, giving you enough peace and quiet to actually hear your own thoughts. Meditation can eventually bring a feeling of contentment, but today you must learn to find satisfaction even while you’re busy.



Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

If you feel that your needs are going unmet today, it’s probably because your moods are shifting very quickly while the Moon is in your fickle sign. You may get exactly what you want, but your desires continue to morph from one thing into another. Fortunately, your friends and associates are pretty easygoing about your current restlessness now, so it’s unnecessary to hide your feelings. Keeping others informed about your process can help to build better friendships.



Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You might think that you need to keep something private, but once you begin telling your story today, your secrecy is overshadowed by your new policy of transparency. Perhaps you realize that you don’t have to hide as much as you usually do, and your current excitement about belonging to an extended family or a social network can have you sharing your feelings before you have a chance to consider the consequences. It’s time to come out of your shell, but don’t overwhelm everyone in the process.



Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You cannot hold yourself back once your attention shifts from listening to active participation. There may be valid reasons for your recent caution, but your progress on several fronts today should win out over your resistance. Don’t try to talk yourself into keeping quiet because the talkative Gemini Moon in your social 11th house needs interaction with others more than you need your autonomy.



Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Making a case for what you want today doesn’t assure that you will be satisfied right away. Nevertheless, this isn’t a sensible time to back down, for your words carry more power these days than you realize. Remember that facing external resistance can be the result of projecting your own internal fears. Overcoming apparent obstacles may prove to be hard work now, but the potential payoff is worth the extra effort.



Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are a bit pushier than usual now, especially if given a chance to tell others about your exciting plans. Your easygoing approach may be thrown out the window as you face the fear of being rejected by a friend or partner. You might believe that turning up your volume is one way to compensate for your uncertainty. Just remember that this impulsive strategy could backfire, motivating others to withdraw. Fortunately, the long-term viability of your ideas is not affected by someone else’s acceptance today. The only opinion that matters right now is yours.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Today’s interactive Gemini Moon provokes you to take a risk and lay your feelings out in the open, whether or not this is the most sensible thing to do. Unfortunately, others may become anxious if they aren’t as comfortable as you are when it comes to handling intense emotions. Nevertheless, suppressing what you want to say will only make matters worse. Seeking the middle path works best; express what’s in your heart without expecting anything in return.



Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The changeable Gemini Moon is illuminating your 7th House of Others, filling the day with one noisy interaction after another. The intriguing folks who enter your life now make it difficult to turn down an invitation to learn something new. Just remember that you don’t have to impress anyone today; all you have to do is soak in as much information as possible and be grateful for the experience.


Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may not be able to shut off your thinking now while ingenious thoughts are spinning your head around. Fortunately, the steady Taurus Sun enables you to pick one good idea and turn it into something tangible. Don’t be afraid to let your mind wander today, since you’ll instinctively come back to center with something positive to show for your daydreaming.


Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

There’s no need to show off your cleverness today, for those close to you already know that you’re very smart. Instead of overstating your case or rambling on too long about your latest great idea, just show up and be yourself. Your intelligence shines through your actions as well as your words, so walk your talk instead of trying to convince others that your plan is the best one.


Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may find yourself exploring new financial territory today, whether you’re considering a major purchase, taking out a loan or making an investment. However, it’s difficult to narrow your focus enough to make a choice as the scattered Gemini Moon aspects several planets in your 2nd House of Money. Remove the pressure by putting off your final decision until you’ve had a chance to gain more clarity on your next move.

Weekend Lunar Love Horoscopes for May 6 – 8

Weekend Love: Lunar Love

by Jeff Jawer

Emotional Lunar Tides

 May 6 – 8

Emotions hover close to the surface this weekend with the Moon in the supersensitive sign of Cancer. This is Luna’s home sign, making feelings stronger and ups and downs more likely. Generally, the nurturing Cancer Moon is good for familiar places, home cooking, cuddling, nostalgia, old movies and all those sweet protective things that make us feel safe.

Friday looks mellow until late at night when the cautious Cancer Moon crashes into an explosive 90-degree square with unsettling Uranus. This planet of shocks and surprises doesn’t flow well with tender Cancer, making this a time when flexibility is essential. Sudden changes of plans and moods don’t foster a sense of intimacy, although a wild night or impulsive fling with an inappropriate person can seem compelling to some.

The road doesn’t look any smoother on Saturday, starting with a snarky Moon-Pluto opposition in the morning and continuing on with a tense lunar square to Saturn later in the day. These transits are more about digging into the depths of our emotions, bringing unresolved issues to the surface or burying them with distractions and denial. Yet this can be a productive day for those willing to tackle tough problems. This cosmic atmosphere lends itself more to responsibility than playfulness as even minor concerns could block out the Sun with dark clouds of doubt.

Several stressful lunar transits give us a lot to talk about on Sunday and, if we’re honest about our feelings, barriers to intimacy could be blown away. Making a fresh start within ourselves and with others is a worthy reward for all this hard work.

Floor Washes

A floor wash is made by adding specific herbs, oils, crystals and other ingredients to water and then using the solution to wash a surface. The reasoning behind this practice is to infuse the surface with the vibrations of the wash, so that it will then attract or dispel the corresponding energies. For example, if you were owed payment for services and the check was late, you might want to wash your mailbox with a money-drawing wash.

Traditional methods call for you to scrub the floor on your hands and knees. The repetitive motion and low concentration level needed allow for a shift in consciousness to take place. Incorporating a chant as you wash will boost the powers of the wash and help your goal to manifest even faster. Remember to be as specific as possible in the wording of your chant.
