Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday May 7th
We continue to ride the waves of optimism as the buoyant Sagittarius Moon aligns with joyful Jupiter and sweet Venus. However, we may attempt to reclaim our center of gravity once the Moon enters earthy Capricorn at 2:16 pm EDT. Although we tend to hide our feelings once Venus shifts into self-protective Cancer, her magical quintile to Uranus thwarts our efforts to settle down. An electric kind of love is in the air if we can find it.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You aren’t happy with your busy schedule today, but you’re resigned to take the more responsible path anyway. Nevertheless, you must confront your irrepressible temptation to procrastinate; nothing will be gained by distracting yourself from your current obligations. Thankfully, once you commit to wholeheartedly focusing your intentions, you gain the power to harness your unrealized potential and have a productive day in spite of yourself. Ironically, your mind is your weakest link and your greatest ally.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You are all set to put the finishing touches on a project today, but unless you are very persistent, things might not go according to your plan. There’s a lot of mental interference in the atmosphere now and the noise could tempt you to ignore your agenda and follow a fleeting whim. Hopefully, you can override your need to escape by practicing a little common sense. You have an opportunity to turn a dream into reality if you pick one track and stay on it.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
You may appear quite busy today, but others can’t figure out why you’re getting so little done. Oddly enough, you don’t even notice that you’re wasting energy running in circles. Fortunately, you can regain control of your day by consciously slowing down. Analyzing the consequences of your behavior prior to initiating action is much more effective than flying off the handle in every direction. Less hurry and less worry leads to higher productivity and greater self-esteem.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Although you can be quite cautious when it comes to revealing your feelings, it’s refreshing to skip the never-ending analysis today. Normally, you prefer to contemplate all your options before doing anything. However, making every little decision as if you’re playing a game of chess takes the excitement out of life. Give yourself permission now to react without concern for what happens next. Putting your emotions out on the table might bring more relief than you expect. Take a chance and open your heart.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You might have committed to so many activities today that you don’t know how you’re going to manage your time. Your responsibilities grow more demanding throughout the day and your schedule becomes less forgiving as the afternoon unfolds. Nevertheless, avoid getting so caught up in your own agenda that you can’t see a solution that’s right in front of your nose. A healthy dose of adaptability allows you to accommodate unexpected changes into your calendar with a minimum of disruption. A positive surprise can occur if you give it room to manifest.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Your resolve grows stronger throughout the day, raising your confidence about a current project at work. Unfortunately, being productive isn’t your only consideration today; you also want to enjoy yourself in the process. Be careful; don’t use your personal desires to justify sabotaging your efforts if you’re not having a good time. Stay on course and demonstrate your expertise. Ultimately, the satisfaction you derive from a job well done will be enough of a reason to celebrate.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You’re determined to complete your work but no matter how practical your approach, you still can see beyond the castle walls. Your perspective on life won’t fit into a neat and tidy package now. In fact, you might even recognize how your current efforts merge with your future plans in a way you haven’t yet grasped. You will do your best work in the long run by finishing on your own timetable, not someone else’s. Fortunately, everything should fall into place if you maintain a high level of focus and an unwavering faith in yourself.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You may grow agitated as you strive for perfection, especially if you find it hard to concentrate now. If you are tired from working so many hours on a project, take stock of what you have already accomplished and pat yourself on the back. Simply letting others know what you still have left to do alleviates the immediate pressure. Don’t waste energy on self-judgment. A little extra rest is all you need today; tomorrow you will feel refreshed and ready for anything.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
If you have been lax at work recently, it’s time to reassess your priorities before continuing in your old ways. Although you want to put your life back in order, you could overcompensate and take on too much in order to prove your good intentions. However, the ambitious Capricorn Moon helps you plan your schedule with efficiency in mind. Make your energy last longer by taking a more methodical approach. Managing your time wisely allows you to work less and accomplish more.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Your friends may be surprised with your uncharacteristic emotional intensity today. They might back off from a conversation to avoid conflict even if they think that you are wrong. Thankfully, the Moon’s monthly return to your sign empowers you to express your vulnerable side without losing track of your goals. Nevertheless, do yourself a big favor and tone down your fervor. You don’t have to push others beyond their comfort zone to stay passionately engaged with your meaningful cause.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You could be drawn into a complex drama today and there might not be a straightforward way to avoid it. You may sink into your emotions and the more you struggle to be somewhere else, the deeper it gets. There’s no need to panic; your smartest strategy is to stop resisting. Listen to what others have to say and don’t put up unnecessary walls. Your gift is to be a sounding board now for those who need it most. Thankfully, the appreciation you receive in return touches your heart in ways you didn’t expect.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your obsession with one particular version of the future can impede your progress today. Or, you might grow afraid of being stuck on your current path, especially if you don’t like where it’s heading. In both scenarios, your attachment or avoidance intensifies the situation and makes it more challenging to navigate through the circumstances. Relaxing your expectations allows you to explore more options and regain a healthier perspective. Wider horizons lead to a happier heart.
