Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, May 3rd
Mercury turns direct in your sign today, dear Aries. Mercury has been retrograde for over three weeks, some of the time in your resources sector and part of the time in your sign. In the coming weeks, recent indecision is likely to clear up and recent contemplation to pay off! Gradually, you’ll make more informed choices as new information comes in. Be extra mindful of details and instructions today as the shift occurs. Finances, communications, transportation, and work-related delays should lift going forward. A Sun-Neptune connection today helps you relax and let things be, and this helps your intuition kick in. Taking action on a private matter or putting a problem behind you may be in focus. Adding creative flair or imaginative touches to a project can be satisfying and successful now.
Mercury began its retrograde in your sign over three weeks ago, dear Taurus, but then retreated into the sign just behind yours. Now, Mercury turns direct, and you’ll see some recent problem areas untangle. Choices become clearer in the weeks ahead. While you can continue to keep some things to yourself as Mercury moves through your privacy sector (until the 16th), you’ll find it easier to make decisions and to deal with private matters. Avoid big launches or new beginnings now, as the shift itself can muddy perceptions. Helping you with this is the Sun in your sign in happy aspect with Neptune today. This influence opens your heart and your mind to new possibilities and encourages looking at things and people for their beauty rather than their flaws. Dreams and ideals assume particular importance to you today. Helping others can be rewarding.
Mercury turns direct after more than three weeks of retrograde motion, dear Gemini, and although problem areas may feel magnified now as the shift occurs, you’ll see some real progress in the days and weeks ahead as Mercury regains speed. Information may emerge that helps you make decisions or choices that left you confounded while Mercury was retrograde. Delays seem to lift. Your friendships or place in a group seem clearer. Helping you go with the flow rather than push ahead too quickly is a Sun-Neptune aspect today that encourages relaxation, retreat, and imagination. The creative side of your projects holds more appeal than usual, and you’re particularly good at seeing (or bringing) magic in/to your pursuits. People are noticing you for your kindness.
Mercury turns direct midday today, dear Cancer, after over three weeks of retrograde motion, first in your friendship sector and then in your career and reputation house. Delays and limbo related to any of these things are likely to break in the coming weeks. Career planning and goal-setting, reputation, status-related issues, and mental health matters gain clarity and then momentum. Be particularly mindful today and tomorrow due to this change in direction that confuses things. Helping you take a break from overthinking so that you can rest your brain is a Sun-Neptune connection that inspires you to dream and imagine wonderful possibilities. Look for refreshing changes of scenery or activities that promote emotional refreshment. Friendships might develop, or you could connect with interesting people and ideas now.
Mercury turns direct today after more than three weeks of retrograde motion, dear Leo, and while the shift itself today can be disorienting, you’ll see forward progress with work, travel, and educational plans or endeavors in the coming days and weeks. Delays or problems related to transportation and communication may lift. Plans you’ve been rethinking now seem clearer. You’ll gain more motivation and clarity with schooling, career, creative direction, and friendships. Wait for an easier day to address big topics or make important decisions, but tune into the creative, imaginative energy generated by a Sun-Neptune influence. Channels for self-expression open with increased faith. Research and development benefit from your intuitive approach. You easily gain others’ support for your goals or plans today.
Mercury stations and moves direct today after a three-week retrograde, dear Virgo. This has the effect of moving things forward and speeding up mental processes. However, easing back into things is best now as the shift occurring today can point to some confusion. Be particularly vigilant with business moves, intimate relationships, and finances. However, these very same things are set to clear up, move forward, and unblock in the coming days and weeks. Delays may also lift on educational, travel, or publishing efforts in the coming weeks. You’ll see a relationship more clearly and matters related to support clarify as well. While it’s not a great time for focus on details, it’s a fine day for creative activities. Patience and a feeling of connectedness with others can be in focus. Something spiritual, romantic, or otherwise inspiring can lift your spirits and improve your outlook. Feeling on the same page or understood can have the same effect.
Mercury ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Libra, and we come to the end of a period of mental reorientation. Keeping in mind that communications can continue to confound us during the shift now, you can nevertheless look forward to more clarity and forward movement related to your relationships, educational pursuits, partnerships, finances, intimate connections, and negotiations. These might turn a corner now, or results come in that offer you more clarity and make it easier to make informed decisions. A connection between Sun and Neptune adds creative flair and a nice touch of imagination to the day. It also helps you to “go with the flow” rather than rush or push things. There can be intuitive hunches that lead you to the right information and creative ways to improve your work or health. Supporting others or self-improvement efforts can be rewarding now.
With Mercury’s direct movement today after several weeks of retrograde motion, dear Scorpio, you’ll begin to see some delays lift and plans move forward in the coming days and weeks. Because Mercury is currently making a shift in direction, you don’t have the green light for big decision-making just yet. As more information comes in, you’ll feel far better equipped to make decisions, particularly related to work, health, partnerships, and finances. Missing links fill in, and these get the ball moving with projects that were put on the back burner. An easygoing aspect between the Sun and Neptune today helps you take things easy. You have faith that things will unfold as they should, and this can help you to relax and open your heart. There can be greater understanding and acceptance in a relationship now. Connecting with others can lead to nice opportunities, and creative efforts are particularly successful.
Mercury ends its several-week retrograde today, dear Sagittarius, and while things may be a little wonky during the shift itself, you’ll see certain problems clear up and delays lift going forward. You’re likely to see forward movement or come to a turning point related to creative projects, romantic relationships (or signals), partnerships, negotiations, and work or health matters. A Sun-Neptune influence today helps you to see and focus on the benefits or beauty of a venture more than its flaws. Inspiration to improve your work or health can lift you up high today. There may be opportunities to bring more creative flair to your services or the job you do. Family relationships can improve, or you enjoy your domestic life more than usual now. Peace, beauty, and harmony in the home can be therapeutic for you.
With Mercury turning direct, dear Capricorn, you’re likely to see some forward movement or more apparent progress in certain projects or endeavors related to home, family, hobbies, and your dating life. There can be more clarity and possibly improved communications in your personal life. Keep in mind that results of Mercury’s direct turn are not immediate and, in fact, life can feel particularly confusing as it changes direction today and tomorrow. Revisiting conversations or problems that confused you or left you with more questions than answers is likely in the days and weeks ahead, but this time you’ll know more variables or have all the information you need to make easy decisions. A Sun-Neptune influence today helps relax you as it fills you with faith and patience to let life unfold before you rather than attempt to push it along when it’s not ready to move! Fortunately, you can express yourself in wonderful ways without the limitations of words alone. This is a time of creative or emotional inspiration.
Mercury ends its retrograde midday, dear Aquarius, and while this points to increasing clarity and forward progress in many areas, the transition itself can feel a little muddled. As new information comes in, you’ll feel better equipped to make firm decisions in the days and weeks ahead. Transportation, learning, educational, family, home, and communication difficulties are likely to pass. Whether an idea or project is now more or less attractive with new information, you’re in a clearer position. Connecting, traveling, and communicating become simpler and more straightforward. Take new projects and developments slowly. You’ll find it easier to relax as the day moves forward, as a Sun-Neptune connection supports your faith and vision, making it natural to relax and go with the flow. Focus on activities that produce spiritual rewards. Imagination and intuition enhance financial and domestic ventures.
Mercury turns direct after more than three weeks of retrograde motion, dear Pisces. Gradually you’ll enjoy more clarity with communications, transportation, personal finances, partnerships, and family or home matters. Today and tomorrow require extra care with communicating, purchases, and facts or figures as Mercury’s apparent speed is very slow. Ease back into decisions and projects. A Sun-Neptune aspect today helps you feel very much in your element, however. While strictly speaking the words you’re choosing may not be perfect, you’re communicating with imagination and unique flair. The emotional and spiritual elements of your life assume particular importance to you today. Others notice your finer qualities today.
