In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Tuesday, May 5, 2009
Planetary Outlook: Tuesday, May 5, 2009: The moon’s entry into Libra this morning brings relationships to the fore of everyone’s attention. A competitive atmosphere may make connecting with a significant other difficult during the day; wait until later in the evening to have a heart-to-heart. Today is the day to accomplish important tasks. Taurus and Virgo natives will have the easiest time of buckling down and really meeting goals today, thanks to a harmonious boost from the Sun and Saturn. This evening, matters related to the arts, writing, creative pursuits, redecorating, or fashion get the green light.
Today’s birthday: Bettys born this day will have lots of luck in the romance department. If you are in a committed relationship, tensions will finally clear up this year and improve relations between the two of you. If you are single, this could be the year a budding relationship deepens or that you meet that special someone you’ve been waiting for. You share you birthday with Tammy Wynette (1942), Chris Brown (1989), and Danielle Fishel (1981).
Taurus: Today you want to be surrounded by beautiful people, places, and things as the moon enters Libra, and enhances your innate aesthetic sensibilities. Appreciation of art and beauty may prompt you to attend a performance or other exhibition this evening. Bring a friend along if you’d like, but if you go alone you may meet someone interesting.
Gemini: You want to spend time with the children in your life today; take the afternoon off and take a spontaneous trip to the zoo, a museum, or the park for a picnic. You’ll have so much fun and really enjoy the carefree innocence only children can bring out in you.
Cancer: You Cancers are always homebodies, but today you’ll be torn about whether you should just stay home doing your chores as usual. Indulge a compulsion to go out this afternoon; you deserve a break from the routine. You are stimulated and inspired by natural surroundings; take a walk in the park, go for a hike in the woods, or do something else that will enable you to appreciate nature.
Leo: Today you may have a small tiff with a co-worker or other professional associate; don’t let that Leo temper get out of control. Count to ten and take a deep breath before you say something you regret. This evening, unwind with some entertainment; meet a few friends for Margaritas at your favorite Mexican restaurant. You’ll forget all about work-related stress once your closest friends get you laughing and enjoying yourself!
Virgo: You may receive good news today concerning a financial matter, such as the approval of a mortgage application or the long-overdue receipt of funds for a fledgling business. The relief of resolving a financial shortfall will get you in the mood to celebrate this evening; go out on the town and celebrate your success. You made it through a really tough time; but your work isn’t over yet – it’s just beginning.
Libra: Today the moon enters you Sun sign, Libra, and marks your once monthly lunar cycle high; a period when your confidence soars and things just seem to go your way. You look and feel great, and people are just drawn to you. Take advantage of your current charismatic appeal to make new friends and connections by going out and socializing this evening.
Scorpio: You and your special someone may be considering making a move toward solidifying your relationship; perhaps even tying the knot. Today the moon in Libra makes it the perfect time for you to verbalize your feelings about a relationship to your special someone.
Sagittarius: Work is on your mind today, and you’ll be able to accomplish a lot if you force yourself to concentrate. You Sags can be so easily distracted, so turn off the cell phone, close Facebook, and no Twittering! By the end of the day you’ll make so much progress on a project that you may decide to put yourself in communication quarantine for the rest of the week so you can finally finish the job!
Capricorn: You are in a romantic mood all day long; you can barely concentrate on your work. You’ll count the hours until you are done for the day, and can get home to your special someone. If you are single, today is a good day to go out with friends – you could meet someone special.
Aquarius: You Aquarians are very idealistic individuals, but you need to maintain a positive outlook in order to be at your most effective. Today, you’ll get a surge of optimism from the moon’s entry into Libra, and you’ll rip yourself right out of that rut that you’ve been wallowing in for weeks. You’ll be so satisfied with today’s mental accomplishments that this evening you’ll celebrate with an impromptu gathering at your place with your nearest and dearest.
Pisces: You need to really think through an important decision today. Don’t rush into a situation without thinking it through. Boost your confidence in your ideas by bouncing them off a trusted confidante this evening.
Aries: The moon enters Libra today and you’ll work best with a partner, particularly in a one-on-one situation. You should do your best to work with some whose talents and abilities are a complement to your own. Don’t be overly aggressive with co-workers or over-identify with a group project or you’ll just succeed in frustrating yourself.
