Your Horoscopes for Saturday, May 2nd
by Rick Levine
Our attention shifts away from our personal desires and toward the needs of others when the Moon is visiting diplomatic Libra. Thankfully, ruffled feathers are soothed today while the nurturing Moon creates a sweet trine to peacemaking Venus. Although we are more likely to be considerate of those around us now, our emotions don’t just disappear. In fact, our feelings sharpen when the Moon slips into incisive Scorpio at 9:47 pm EDT.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Although you Rams are sometimes criticized for behaving selfishly, the emphasis is on everyone else today. You might even feel a sense of relief now that you can take a break from focusing on your own personal agenda. Instead of trying to get your way, concentrate on what you could do for others to make them feel at ease. Fortunately, your current graciousness allows everyone to reflect your positive vibes back to you.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
Serving others now can take you down a very sweet path to happiness today as the lovely Libra Moon brings you an abundance of pleasurable experiences. However, you might not feel so great if you choose to only satisfy your own needs. It’s not worth the effort to try changing external circumstances to match up with your personal preferences. Instead, let go of your expectations and offer your assistance wherever you think it might help most. Being someone’s angel is its own reward.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Although complications that are outside the sphere of your control loom close, friends and family are especially supportive now, bringing you joy in the moment. You deserve the respite you may be offered from a rather tumultuous few weeks and the heavier issues clouding the horizon won’t get in your way if you let them slide for a while. Thankfully, taking some personal time enables you to return to your responsibilities emotionally recharged and physically well-rested. A change of pace does you a world of good.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You might not be able to spend the entire day hanging out with your family and friends, but being around those you love revitalizes your spirit while the Moon is camping out in your 4th House of Domestic Conditions. You are eager to show everyone that you have what it takes to be a consummate host now, so round up a few friends and fire up the barbecue. However, entertaining others is only part of the equation; don’t forget to bask in the love of those closest to you while you have the chance.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You don’t have to say yes to every single invitation with your name on it, because you could end up so scattered that your current spark of excitement is extinguished. You may have many tasks to complete, especially if you are in charge of a family or group activity. Rather than running in circles attempting to take care of everything for everyone, try delegating some of the chores to others. Relinquishing control isn’t easy, but it’s the wisest thing to do now for the benefit of the group.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You’re able to keep your feet on the ground today while also flitting around like a social butterfly. You have a particular point of view, but don’t want to waste energy defending it. Even if you successfully hide your current beliefs from public scrutiny, you still can’t escape from the pressing concerns that are weighing on you. Spending a little time on more serious matters may be prudent, but even you conscientious Virgos need to get away from your regular responsibilities. Work smarter, not harder.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Maintaining an objective approach to life isn’t straightforward today as the emotional Moon in your sign activates susceptible Venus. Your insecurities, opinions and biases may leak out, even if you think you are cleverly keeping them out of sight. Don’t fight to hide your natural likes and dislikes; if you bury your feelings, you could end up angry or resentful. Instead of pretending that everything is all right just to please everyone, show up and be your authentic yourself.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You are in touch with emotional dynamics that are just lurking in the shadows but you don’t want to create additional problems in a relationship now, making it difficult to share your concerns. Nevertheless, you also have some significant information you need to express. Don’t tie your disclosure to anyone else’s actions; just put your feelings out there with no expectations. Ultimately, whatever you say can be less disruptive if you say it with kindness.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Kicking back with a few of your best friends might be just what you need today. In fact, the timing could be right for a celebration, since it’s wise to surround yourself with like-minded people while the Moon is currently visiting your 11th House of Networking. Be grateful that you are a part of a growing community. Your sense of belonging to something greater than yourself grounds you in ways that may not be apparent on the surface. When you’re more comfortable with your place in the world, you become a more productive member of society.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You demand respect from all those you encounter while the Moon is energizing your 10th House of Status. Fortunately, doing the right thing elevates your standing in your community. Although you enjoy the company of others, you may be too busy with your own personal agenda to have much to do with anyone who isn’t in your closest circle of friends. Instead of pursuing every social connection now, limit your interactions to those who can move you closer to your dreams.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You may feel as if you’re up for nearly anything that sounds like fun, especially if your friends are participating in the activity. In fact, what you do is currently less important than who you do it with. Although you can get away with following your heart now, you still must honor your previous promises. Nevertheless, there’s nothing wrong with trying to postpone a deadline until tomorrow if it means you can do something special today. Ultimately, you need both work and play to be a happy camper.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You prefer to approach all interactions in a rational manner today. Unfortunately, if someone makes an unreasonable demand, you still might try to fulfill their wishes. Balancing your needs with those of others can be challenging, but don’t be afraid to establish healthy boundaries now or someone may push you too far. Remember, catering to the desires of others doesn’t mean you must give up on finding satisfaction. Be a good friend to yourself.
