Horoscope Weekly: May 2 – 8
By Samantha Perkins
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – Nobody is competition for you at the beginning of the week. You’ll be at the top of your game and others will look on admiringly. As the week continues, your ambitions will find even more support. Now is a great time to form alliances. You may have trouble getting things done towards the end of the week and into the weekend, but don’t let that get you down. You got a lot done at the beginning of the week, so it’s okay if you want to spend the weekend relaxing or hanging out with friends.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – At the beginning of the week, you’ll be in a really great state of mind. Your patient, open-minded attitude is paying off and the first few days of the week should go exactly as planned. Try to be flexible the rest of the week. Over the weekend, spend some time hanging out and chatting with friends.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 21) – At the beginning of the week, you’ll have to work hard to eliminate confusion. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself influenced by very persuasive (and maybe crazy) ideas. Don’t let yourself back down from any good arguments. Over the weekend, your head will be in the clouds, but while you’re up there you may think of some creative ideas. Paint a picture, draw, write some music, do something to get those good, imaginative ideas down.
Cancer (Jun 22-Jul 22) – At the beginning of the week, you may have a hard time making yourself clear. It may be wise to lay low in order to avoid misunderstandings. You’ll have a much better time with communicating after Tuesday, though. Over the weekend, you may find yourself with some wanderlust. Go on an adventure, even if that adventure is as simple as going for a walk in the park.
Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22) – On Monday, there should be plenty of opportunities to achieve your goals, so if you know what you want, go after it! Throughout the rest of the week, try to ease back on your ego. Your pride could lead you into conflict. Over the weekend, try to learn something new. Learning helps you grow as a person, and you should have a little fun doing it.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22) – On Monday and Tuesday, you’ll find yourself feeling unusually outgoing and optimistic. This good mood should carry for the rest of the week. Over the weekend, watch out for problems in a relationship of some sort. Don’t be too critical of the people most important to you.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22) – On Monday, you may find yourself feeling overly sentimental, but try to toss that to the wayside and remember how optimistic you typically are. Once your depressing mood is behind you, spend the rest of the week meeting new people and trying new things. Over the weekend, expect your routine to be interrupted. Things won’t go as planned, but that can be a good thing as long as you go with the flow.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21) – At the beginning of the week, you’ll feel very ambitious. Your willpower and assertiveness will be at an all-time high, and it’s a great time to make commitments. However, your work with others could become less harmonious as the week progresses. Over the weekend, look for opportunities to show off your selflessness. You don’t show that side of yourself very often, and it’d be a good time to let people see the gentler, kinder side of you.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21) – You might be focused on some money problems at the beginning of the week. It’s always difficult when you’re strapped for cash. Just try to find creative ways to save some money and you should be fine. You may find yourself having trouble focusing on school throughout the week. Just be sure to pay attention during the important stuff. You’ll be full of energy over the weekend. Go out and have some fun with your friends.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19) – At the beginning of the week, expect to get a lot done, and to get a lot of praise for it. Throughout the week, your creativity should blossom. Get your new ideas out there through whatever creative medium you choose. Spend some time with your family on the weekend. It is Mother’s Day on Sunday, after all. Your parents will appreciate it.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) – You may be confused by something on Monday or Tuesday, but just go with the flow. Let things unfold and adapt as necessary. Once you’re past the first couple days of the week, you’ll find yourself at your confident, charismatic best. Others will admire by your brilliance. Don’t be afraid to be yourself over the weekend.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) – You’ll find your leadership skills come in handy on Monday. Don’t be afraid to take the helm on a project or adventure. Throughout the rest of the week, you’ll find yourself overwhelmed with thoughts and ideas. Take with your friends and figure out which ideas are good, bad, and crazy. Spend the weekend figuring out how to make your good ideas a reality.
