Horoscope Weekly: May 9 – 15
By Samantha Perkins
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – You’ll find exciting and unexpected opportunities for meeting new people and trying new things at the beginning of the week, which suits your adventurous spirit perfectly. Your week will slow down as it continues, though, and you’ll need to rely on your charms rather than your can-do attitude to make things happen. Even though prom’s going on this weekend, try to make some time for your family. They’d love to spend a few hours with you.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – It’ll pay off to be patient on Monday, even if you’re feeling the urge to rush around and make things happen. However, you won’t need to hold back the rest of the week. You’re full of energy and enthusiasm, which could turn out to be an attractive combination. Over the weekend, take some risks and let others know how you feel. Maybe you’ll get that special dance at prom after all.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 21) – You’ve got good instincts on Monday, but things might turn out even better for you if you seek out guidance from some close friends. You may find yourself being a little flighty throughout the rest of the week. That’s okay, just be sure to concentrate on any obstacles that may pop up. Over the weekend, don’t get moody if you don’t get what you want. Compromise and focus on having fun.
Cancer (Jun 22-Jul 22) – Your brain will be in high gear at the beginning of the week. You’ll have a quick wit and an impressive memory, just be sure to think before you speak. You wouldn’t want to accidentally offend anyone.
Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22) – On Monday, find an opportunity to learn something or meet someone new. It’ll do you good. Throughout the week, you may find yourself obsessing over ego and status. A little self-confidence is good and healthy, but be sure you’re doing things for the right reasons (not just to show off). Over the weekend, meet up with friends and follow your intuition.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22) – The beginning of the week is a good time to reflect and embrace new priorities, but just know that your renewed perspective could bring you into conflict with others. Throughout the week, look for chances to travel, even if traveling consists of a trip to a new park. Over the weekend, enjoy some socializing. Prom is this weekend, after all! Just be sure to make a little time for your family.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22) – On Monday, be sure you’re finding a balance between selfishness and selflessness. You need a little bit of both to lead a happy life. Throughout the rest of the week, your best traits will take center stage. This weekend, avoid making decisions without getting advice from trustworthy friends and family members and try to keep your head down.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21) – You may find yourself butting heads with someone on Monday, but a little selflessness on your end could ease the situation. Throughout the week, you may find that a lot of ideas and plans are clashing with yours, but it may be wise to compromise. The weekend looks to be a little hectic, so it’s best to just go with the flow and be flexible with any plans that may pop up.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21) – You’ll have a huge burst of energy on Monday, enabling you to accomplish a lot. It’ll be impossible to be anything but productive. Throughout the week, your cheerful adaptability will be put to the test. Over the weekend, don’t be too concerned if you can’t get a lot done. You’ll be incredibly busy with social obligations, so chores and work may fall to the wayside. You’ll make up for lost ground in no time, so just enjoy the fun.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19) – Make your family a priority at the beginning of the week. You’ve been busy recently and haven’t allotted a lot of time for them, so sit down, have a family dinner, and maybe play a game or two. A few hours of your time will mean the world to them. Throughout the week, your creativity will soar, enabling you to find innovative ways to get things done while having fun doing them. Over the weekend, don’t take any criticism personally.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) – The beginning of the week should be an excellent time to put some of your amazing ideas into action. You’ll be preoccupied with new and innovative ideas all week, actually, even if it’s only to keep your mind entertained. Over the weekend, take care of small details in your plans and then stick to them.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) – The beginning of the week may start with a puzzle you feel the urge to solve, but it’s nothing you can’t handle. Throughout the week, show your more affectionate and compassionate side, even if that just means telling someone how you feel. Over the weekend, maintain your flexibility. You don’t need any plans nailing you down.
