Horoscopes Sunday 8th May 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Although the general picture looks to be one of conflicting energies, efforts to find a way through can spotlight new and intriguing solutions which may not have come out otherwise. And while the past few days may have been excellent for setting your intentions, today offers the opportunity to convert obstacles into the springboard and opportunities to flourish.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
The Gemini Moon and its edgy links could make decision-making more difficult than usual - but only if you don't try too hard to please everyone. Over the next day or so you may find yourself pulled in different directions by friends, responsibilities and your own pleasure plans. What should you do? Firstly attend to your most urgent tasks, then let your instincts guide you.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
While the Moon sparkles in your sign, it also opposes Mars and Saturn in your sector of relating which might mean you feel at odds with certain people. This doesn't necessarily mean that you are, but it could cause some discomfort. What might irk you is a feeling you're being talked down to. Yet given the outlook Gemini, try not to take your reactions too seriously.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
The present focus suggests you may be ready for a spot of socializing and a chance to get to know certain people in more depth. Indeed, your curiosity may be aroused by someone who seems to have a lot more to them than meets the eye. Despite diverging perspectives, a mutual interest might not only draw you together, but could spark an animated friendship.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
The situation before you may seem complex, but is it really, Leo? Although it may appear to be a difficult case, with patience it may not be so hard to untangle the knot. If you break this issue down into chunks you might find the answer is more obvious once you give it your full attention. Thinking out of the box could help too, or the thoughts of a friend.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
The present backdrop suggests that whether you're sticking to a healthy regime or not, you shouldn't begrudge yourself the odd chance to indulge. Indeed, with Venus linking to Jupiter you may want to invite friends or a loved one along as a treat. So whether you opt for a massage, a three-course meal or go to see a show, a little luxury could be good for your soul.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
The Moon's link with Mars can help you connect the dots and create a deeper understanding. However, today may just as easily coincide with a conversation in which you seem to be talking at cross-purposes with someone. If you can see the bigger picture it could be helpful to keeping the relationship on an even keel, despite any diverging opinions you may have.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
The present astrological picture could leave you uncertain as to whether you should play the social butterfly or attend to more serious matters. While the Moon's link to Jupiter can bring out your more bubbly side, other influences may leave you feeling guilty if it means you could let someone down. Whatever you decide, restless vibes could influence your actions.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Difficulties around discussing awkward issues are not uncommon, but today's influence encourages a more forward approach. Mind, with Mars continuing its rewind phase a degree of procrastination is probably only natural, but also useful if it helps you re-frame your thoughts. Even so, your mood may be such that you can feel better if you finally do speak out.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
The way the planetary picture is panning out, it would be no surprise if you felt you were falling behind with certain tasks. However, although lunar ties can fuddle your schedule the overall feeling may be a desire to get on top of things by making a concerted effort. Indeed, if the pressure's on you may find you get more done now than you have in the past week.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Current edgy aspects can make you curious to find any answers you need - and fast. A discussion with someone may put an issue of yours into perspective in such a way that solutions begin to bubble up spontaneously. Don't take proffered advice too literally, though. Your horoscope reveals it's wise to check the facts, for with planets rewinding you could be caught out unnecessarily.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
It may be all too easy to lose yourself in thoughts that leave you feeling indecisive and unproductive. Indeed, if you're ready to make the most of the coming days, your best bet may be to focus on activities that require teamwork. However, with a delightful Venus Jupiter tie developing there's also fun to be had with friends, or if you are really lucky, a lovely date.
