The week is dominated by one very harsh aspect and one incredibly positive one. And a lot of this energy is around Jupiter the planet of growth and the traditional planet of optimism and good fortune. Yet if we set our sights too high, and without the right amount of hard work and application, our hopes may come to nil. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 2nd May 2016 please see below...
Weekly Horoscopes 2nd May 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
With Venus having just arrived in the sign of Taurus this can help to fend off the potentially more limiting influence of Mercury's rewind in the same location. A slice of financial fortune is possible, but around everyday expenses and transactions continue to be observant, as oversights can affect you though career prospects can evolve really well.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
With the New Moon in your sign this week, and your guide planet Venus getting a toe hold in Taurus, this is a fine time to dazzle people with your individuality. This may see you give yourself some kind of glamorous new makeover, or spark more creative strands into greater life. Just be aware that some hopes may be a bit stop start, with Mercury still in retrograde.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
People see you as highly personable and outgoing, and you can be. However, this week can see you demonstrating a much different side of your nature, one which can see you enjoy life's gentler pursuits. However, it could feel that others are keeping you at an arm's length, but the chances are you may be less inclined to interact than is usually the case.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
If you have been feeling an overwhelming sense of obligation to others, the good news is that this can ease now. When and how you connect this week, is much more likely to come from free will and because you enjoy doing so, rather than feeling you have to. That said, despite bright social stars, factor in the potential for some alterations and last minute changes of plan.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Your expenditure can still put a strain on your incomings, but there is an opportunity to grow your worldly worth too. This is because your natural talent for shining in public and professional situations can be boosted as Venus advances in Taurus. This is a time when charm can work wonders, but with Mercury still backtracking, sincerity will be essential too.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
The concept of spreading your wings or showing a more derring-do side can really appeal. You may even check out some exotic travel destinations. However, circumstances closer to home may not be creating quite the environment to do so and this could then see frustration build. Fortunately, this week's astrology throws up a wonderful New Moon can still catapult you beyond any tricky limitations.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
The good news is that Mars is no longer tangling with Neptune. If you have been feeling particularly drained by everyday situations you can feel more liberated. It is though true that with Mercury in retrograde, extra care is needed around financial transactions and planning. However, this can also be a time when you have a stroke of good fortune too.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
A conversation you have this week can be truly illuminating. In fact, there's a very good chance that the person you connect and share ideas with can be someone who has a profound impact upon you. Perhaps it'll be a common interest that draws you together. Then again, there can certainly be the chance to harmonise all sorts of ties - if you choose your words with care.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Those tiny details that can sometimes bore you take on an even greater relevance with Mercury continuing its retrograde. Yet the more you grapple with these and any other everyday matters, especially around diet, life organisation, work, health and fitness, the more you have to gain. Your emotional energy and close relationships can also seem less bogged down.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
As much as you can dazzle people with personality power, perhaps not everyone will swoon. But being the realist you are, you are unlikely to be too disappointed for too long. And even if some hopes don't go exactly to plan, others can actually exceed your expectations. Some anxieties that have seemed oppressive can also lift as Jupiter goes forwards this week.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
That DIY project that you have been promising yourself that you'd tackle, may become hard to resist now. In fact, any home or garden based pottering can bring you a great deal of pleasure. If this also creates some thinking time, you may enjoy moments of solitude or at least peace and quiet. Just don't let any worrisome issues circulate around your mind too much.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
You can be buzzing with possibilities and with the Sun also linking brilliantly to the transformational Pluto, as the week wears on, some of your conversations can be to do with long term plans, friendships or strongly held values. Mind, there may be the odd glitch along the way, so when it comes to your everyday communications stay alert and tuned in.
