Horoscopes Sunday 5th May 2019
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The steadying Taurus Moon encourages a pause for thought before taking up an idea that may seem too good to be true. As fiery Mars your ruler opposes expansive Jupiter, you could be persuaded to try something on the basis of a very optimistic conversation. Will it work out? It may do if you take the time to research it properly. Impulsive moves won't help though Aries.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
If you've convinced yourself there is something you must have, it may be hard to settle until you get it. A dynamic aspect could make it easy to believe you can't do without it. With a key blend of energies reaching a peak, it's best not to invest in this item until you have researched it further. Will it really benefit you? An honest appraisal can lead to a more informed decision Taurus.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
You could find yourself attracted to someone, and yet be mildly annoyed by them as well. This is likely down to a powerful opposition between fiery Mars in your sign and Jupiter retro in your sector of relating. They might seem to talk down to you at times, which could be a tad irritating. However, don't dismiss them too quickly, as they could have very useful information to share.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
The Moon in your social sector and its alignment with sobering Saturn and powerful Pluto, suggests you may be invited to a formal event. Whatever its nature Cancer, this is an opportunity to cement ties with those who have influence in your sphere of interest. Your horoscope also reveals that a strong intuitive nudge could inspire you to seize an opportunity that may still be there for the taking.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Has your enthusiasm for romance waned recently? If so, a friend may encourage you not to give up. Should you listen to them though Leo, after all, what do they know? If it is a close friend, there may be times when they know you better than you know yourself, and this could be one of them. Your reluctance might be down to a fear of rejection, and their positive words can help.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Connecting with people from other countries and cultures could give you much food for thought. With a strong focus on your sector of far horizons and lunar ties to your leisure zone, you may benefit from getting to know someone with a wide range of experience. Perhaps they have travelled or lived in far-flung places. If so, there may be something you could learn from them.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
You may want to believe, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you should. A dynamic aspect between assertive Mars and exuberant Jupiter, suggests someone could try to sell you something. And if they are persuasive enough, you might fall for it. Take back control Libra, and don't allow yourself to be talked into something that sounds too good to be true, as it may be exaggerated.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
This can be a good time for firming up arrangements so plans can proceed without a hitch over the coming days. However, as Mars your co-ruler faces off with jubilant Jupiter across your financial axis, it may be tempting to rack up credit so you can purchase something that might improve your life. Wait a few days Scorpio, as there could well be a much better deal out there.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Is someone trying to goad you into action? And if so, are they succeeding? With uplifting Jupiter now rewinding, you may not feel like being pushed into anything. And you may be right, as the coming months could seem to support your views. This is more a time to explore opportunities, rather than be corralled into something that isn't good for you. Trust your instincts Archer!
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Although you likely have a lot to contend with, while also being curious to explore fresh opportunities, you may adopt a philosophical approach for now. It is as though a deeper and perhaps wiser part of you is encouraging you not to rush into anything, but rather to take your time. This might be the better option, as with three retro planets ongoing nothing is set in stone.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
If you're looking for entertainment, you may find your normal haunts less fulfilling than usual, which could be a sign that you're ready for a change. Right now, a desire for something different could inspire you to explore groups or clubs that have more of a pulse. You may be looking to engage with people who have fresh ideas to share, and being a part of this could be rewarding.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
You could go beyond the call of duty by putting hard work into a group or community project, or helping at a committee meeting. And you may be very willing to do so, and see your efforts going to a good cause. But make time to put your feet up as well, as this can recharge you ready for an action-packed weekend. If you're inclined to socialize, it's a good time to get out and about.
