Your Horoscopes for Sunday, May 6th
You’re likely to be busy and more involved than usual today, dear Aries, but also a little high-strung. There is a tendency to act on a whim. However, you’ll be much better off if you don’t allow inner restlessness to set you back. Worries about impending changes related to your career or reputation, concerns about not being on top of things, or a fear of becoming less relevant or falling behind can be making you tense, especially as the day advances and a Mercury-Pluto square comes into effect. Aim to make a plan to strengthen areas where you feel the most vulnerable, and work on this strategy one step at a time. Watch what you say, particularly professionally or publicly, but try your best not to dwell on problem areas. Instead, aim to learn from where your mind goes now as you may be seeing some of your more significant fears or vulnerabilities.
There is some tendency to feel a little rebellious or to pull yourself back as soon as you have what you want today, dear Taurus, with your ruler, Venus, in minor challenging aspect to Uranus. You’d be better off looking within to see what is making you restless instead of blindly following whims. As the day advances, a Mercury-Pluto square comes into play, and you may be dealing with obstinacy or differences in opinion as well as a tendency for everyone to take things more personally than usual. It can be a real challenge to relax your mind today, and some of you could be weighed down by a secret that you can’t reveal or a sense that you’re out of the loop on a matter. Do your best to detach yourself from negative thinking and perhaps even use worry to fuel efforts to fix problems.
Situations today can throw you for a loop, dear Gemini, but they can also result in a greater understanding of problem areas. There can be surprises in your relationships or social life. Do your best not to worry or overthink things to the point that you don’t enjoy the moment. Instead, take a little extra time before sharing news or your opinion. Feeling guilty, after all, is usually a waste of psychic energy, but a Mercury-Pluto square active today does incline you to think in extremes. Doing something about problems, even through small adjustments, is how you win. In fact, feeling a little uncomfortable or vulnerable can motivate you to strengthen areas of your life, and this leads to increased confidence. Allow your thinking to deepen today, but don’t let it cross into obsessive or compulsive territory that wears you down. In your conversations, try to avoid defensiveness for best results.
There can be some feelings of discontent or discomfort that push you to make much-needed adjustments and changes today, dear Cancer. Forward movement may not be instant, but the adjustments you’re making now can improve your life significantly later. Conversations can be loaded, or people are taking things the wrong way. It can be challenging to be objective now but watch for drawing hard and fast conclusions based on today’s perceptions. What seems wrong today may be disproved tomorrow, after all! Surprise elements today can be disruptive but might also lead to breakthroughs. You might come to a better understanding of your ambitions in the process, too. Power plays might seem to dominate in your close relationships as Mercury and Pluto angle towards a square aspect. However, frustrations can be fuel for the motivation to fix problem and vulnerable areas.
Pressures to get things done can interfere with personal enjoyment today, dear Leo, and disruptions can frustrate you. While there is excellent energy with you for new insights now, distractions are plenty. You may experience some unrest or conflicted feelings about a friend, but it can be challenging to follow through on hunches for the time being. Inflexible thinking is one of the biggest potential pitfalls of a Mercury-Pluto square that’s in effect now, and you should watch for wasting too much time on worry. While your eye for detail is excellent right now, it may be at the expense of seeing the bigger picture. Consider, as well, that you may be putting too much pressure on yourself to micromanage something that may very well do fine without the extra attention. Physical activity or other body-focused activities that help reduce stress may be particularly appropriate today.
A Venus-Uranus minor challenge influences the first half of the day, dear Virgo, and this can stir up trouble. It’s better to recognize those things you truly need to change rather than let restlessness control your mood. As the day advances, too, there can be some tensions, and you may want to watch for a tendency to try to over-manage results or situations, as this can be unnecessarily draining. You may be worried about what others learn about you, or you could be feeling threatened if someone doesn’t seem to be catching onto your ideas. Perhaps you’re more invested in your views than you thought! It’s best to work on trying to solve problems that are leaving you feeling powerless. If you’re worried someone might expose something about you, then you might decide to reveal something of yourself on your own terms instead, for example. As well, try to focus on something both enjoyable and productive to take your mind off the negative thought patterns.
Do your best to avoid dwelling on things that make you tense today, dear Libra, although this can be a bit of a tall order today with a few tense aspects challenging your relationships and attitude. Today is active for high levels of mental energy, and if you can focus, you can find the right motivation to tackle problem areas. Even so, people can be testy today. If someone touches a nerve with you, take particular note of this, as it is pointing you in the direction of a vulnerable area that needs work and special attention. You could be mulling over issues, and this can serve you good purpose only up to a certain point, beyond which it is only harmful and exhausting. An examination of your fears can help you to adapt to changes. Try not to come down heavily on someone for not agreeing with you or for not holding some of the same values as you do. Your mind may be going to darker or deeper places than usual today, but the process can lead to good ideas about how to better manage your life. Try to shake off obsessive thoughts and work on solutions to problems.
You may experience problems counting on others or on social plans in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio, when people can be a little elusive or unreliable. Try to treat interruptions or changes of schedule as unimportant in the long run. As the day advances, you can be suspecting a hidden agenda, or you could be questioning others’ motives. It would be a good idea to avoid taking on too many or too demanding activities so that you don’t feel like you’re running behind. A good rule of thumb today is to strive to be gentle with others and yourself as much as possible, which means be careful with what you reveal or expose. It’s important to avoid focusing on one particular train of thought or critique if it’s consuming too much of your time and energy. Consider, too, that your words have more energy and impact than usual, so it’s a good idea to give things more thought before verbalizing them. Aim to represent yourself well.
There can be some distance or rebellion in your social or love life to deal with today, dear Sagittarius, but it’s temporary. You may very well merely need a small change of pace to feel back on track romantically or emotionally. Communications are tricky. You may be second-guessing your first impression or past choices. Restlessness can lead to unusual whims or desires. Watch for an attraction to a big purchase or commitment that can interfere with your freedom down the road. As the day advances, look out for negative thinking, hurt feelings, or manipulative game-playing with a Mercury-Pluto square in effect. If an ongoing issue is resurfacing, you might want to handle it once and for all. Use today’s intense energy constructively by discovering your passions and fears rather than worrying too much about what others are thinking and doing.
A couple of influences active today can stir up a bit of tension, dear Capricorn, but nothing you can’t handle! In fact, you can find them very revealing. This morning, consider that you need a change of pace, and try to make small changes in your routine rather than deny the need. This can be a time to make little updates that refresh you. Another influence points to troubles communicating and difficulties with trust. Minor problems can seem larger than life, as you may be giving more power to a matter than it deserves. Watch for a tendency to micromanage or to act upon fears of losing your clout. If others are not exactly on board with your ideas or opinions, try not to take it personally, since it’s highly unlikely that it’s an offense to your intelligence or value. You might want to choose a more settled time to present your case.
There can be a lot going on in your inner world today, dear Aquarius, including vivid memories or breakthrough discoveries. A Venus-Uranus minor influence can quicken the pace or leave you feeling a little restless and impatient. Look for ways to deal with making constructive changes rather than random ones for best results. You’d be best off letting things unfold naturally rather than make drastic or bold moves right now. Initial perceptions need a second look, too, with a Mercury-Pluto square active, as fear or guilt can distort them. You may be expecting the worst with someone, but fear may be leading you to negative conclusions. Past problems can emerge or moments of insecurity tend to drive negative patterns of behavior. Try to focus on uncomplicated or straightforward activities and resist the tendency to make more of something than it deserves. Saying the wrong things can lead to unnecessary tension, so aim to think twice before speaking out today. Work on resolving frustrated feelings or resentments.
Breaks in the routine are likely today, dear Pisces, and can be quite distracting. There is an element of randomness or rebellion to the energy of the day, and you may be tempted to follow a whim. Aim to clear out psychic junk so that you can clearly see what you need to change. Complications or contrariness in a relationship can figure strongly now, or people in your life are giving off very mixed signals. Even so, overthinking things can lead to unnecessary trouble. You may be better off putting the big decisions on hold until your head is clear. As much as possible, disengage from negative thoughts by replacing them with positive affirmations. Challenges or conflicts faced today can lead to creative solutions and positive improvements and changes. For now, keep things simple. Try not to lose too much time on trivial matters.
