The Moon in action-orientated Aries and it's link to Mars in its retro phase can see us reviewing an idea, especially if we have mixed feelings about it.
However, other connections suggest we may not be as prepared as we think, and that brushing up on our knowledge or skills may be helpful. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Wednesday 4th May 2016 please see below...
Horoscopes Wednesday 4th May 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Lunar links to the feisty energies of Mars and the sobering influence of Saturn may remind you that it's not always possible to have what we want. If you get less than you want try to be content with this. And anyway would this be such a bad thing? The trick for us is down to appreciation, and sometimes the things we have little expectation about, please us the most.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You may have to face the fact that someone might be unwilling to adapt themselves to your expectations, no matter how fervently you wish they would. Indeed, the present planetary picture suggests that it can be more a case of you adapting to them - and even of going to lengths to do so. If money is involved in the mix, look to secure some kind of compromise.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
If a friend or spouse have been reluctant to get out and about of late you may have to charm them to get into the right frame of mind. If this helps to get them involved and included in local activities they may appreciate your encouragement. Then again, if they are genuinely going through a quiet phase, they might just need some time and space to themselves.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Don't be distracted by short term gains. The reason being is that the Sun, Jupiter and Pluto are aligning to form a potent planetary pattern that could set you on a new longer term course. Should you notice a lot of chopping and changing initially, try not to let it bother you, as you may have to sustain your efforts over a longer period of time to see results.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Although today can be an excellent time to showcase your creative abilities, it can also be a chance to improve on them if you wish. You can be motivated by those who are brilliant, which could push you to try even harder. Is this justified, though, Leo? Perhaps, for you might find that a little competition spurs you on to produce some of your best work.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
The Moon's links to Mars and Saturn can make you more aware of certain family traits - and there may be some within you that seem less fitting to today's world and your exact circumstances. We are all moulded by our early lives, atmospheres and influences, but we shouldn't be ruled by these, so if you need to evolve give yourself permission to do so.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
You may be aware that what you say and the way you say it could be crucial to events over coming days and to the balance of a key relationship. But with both Mars and Saturn continuing in their rewind phase you'll also want to avoid putting pressure on yourself. Though it might seem you can easily fulfil a commitment, a degree of leeway may be needed too.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Rushing might not be helpful to you Scorpio, especially as you may have your best insights and do your best work if you can slow down. You may even discover new ways to streamline your affairs and become more efficient by doing so. What's more, it might become clear that one activity hasn't been such a good investment of your time, and you can look to let go.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
The rousing qualities of the Aries Moon may shift your priorities and encourage your love of spontaneity. In fact, your horoscope suggests you might benefit from letting off steam, especially if you've been under pressure of late. While it's important to focus on our responsibilities, there's no reason to begrudge yourself a little light-hearted merriment too.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
The Moon Pluto square hints that certain interactions may be more poignant than usual. In fact, if you need to hold a difficult conversation it may help to be as sensitive as possible. Although this alignment can encourage total honesty, in practice diplomacy may work best, especially if you want to remain on good terms with this person for the long haul.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Although current influences encourage co-operation, it may not be that simple to get the help you need. While others may be keen to pitch in, they might not have much time to spare, so factor this into your thoughts. Plus with Mars and Saturn flipping backwards their input can be hit and miss. Set realistic targets for yourself for the time being, Aquarius.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Lunar ties to Mars and Saturn suggest that although you may be enthusiastic about a plan or goal you'd be best not to act impulsively. If you attempt to go too far too fast, you may have to start all over. Asking others for advice and doing some in-depth information gathering can give you a more realistic and informed picture of what's really involved.
