Your Horoscope For The Week Of May 5


Aries (March 21-April 19)
Lather, rinse, repeat has never been your holy trinity, Aries. You’re the restless Ram and crave constant variety. Wednesday’s solar eclipse helps you diversify, especially when it comes to your career. Your daily bread could be delivered from a new “bakery” this week. Or, you could find a clever way to reshuffle your workload so your focus goes to engaging tasks rather than ones that bore you to tears.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Now on the mainstage…The Taurus Show! A solar eclipse in your sign (the first in nine years) pushes you into the public eye. You have two choices here: You could scurry away modestly or you can seize the moment and proudly reveal your tour de force. Just so you know: People are interested in watching you in action. This eclipse could also reset your aspirations, revealing a new obsession with a career path to match.


Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Hello, gorgeous! Venus, planet (and goddess) of love, beauty and harmony, sets up shop in Gemini from May 9 until June 2. Sit back and enjoy the ride. Your magnetism draws a fleet of admirers. The hardest choice you’ll have to make is which one to meet for dinner first. Midweek, keep pen and paper, sketchpad, guitar, or laptop near your bed. Inspiration strikes, rousing you from your sleep. Capture these seeds of genius before they fade into the dreamscape.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Heavy is the head that wears the crown…and frankly, your shoulders are starting to ache, too. Massage away the tension by turning a solo mission into a collaborative effort. Your dream team should be revealed near Wednesday’s solar eclipse. At the very least, you’ll feel inspired to get out of your crab shell and start the search for your tribe. There are others like you, Cancer. Seek and you shall find.

Leo (July 23-August 22)
Wednesday’s solar eclipse opens a propitious window. You’ll get a chance to advance your career, but time is of the essence. A bold demonstration of your dedication is required. Roll up your sleeves and put in the extra hours. People will sing your praises if you play your cards right. Welcome to the executive suite!

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Refill those two-ounce shampoo bottles. You could be hopping on a plane unexpectedly this week, courtesy of a solar eclipse in your travel house. This might be a work thing, especially if you’re in hot pursuit of a new account or developing an entrepreneurial venture. It could also be a play thing, especially if a long-distance attraction has been percolating. Log out of Google Chat and test out your romance in real time.


Libra (September 23-October 22)
You’re a fierce and unflinching contender this week. Such a change from your kumbaya MO, Libra. Let’s get real, handing over the trophy to your so-called competition was a habit you needed to break. But check yourself so you don't veer into cutthroat terrain. Winning feels great when you earn it fair and square, but not so much if you sneak around or play it shady.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Your love light is visibly beaming, forcing you to come clean about a crush. Whose name have you been doodling in that heart, Scorpio? This person’s potential is revealed, for better or for worst. Here’s hoping your feelings are mutual. If not, the fantasy ends here. It has to if you don’t want to miss out on a reciprocal romance with someone else.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Love planet Venus sounds the call for commitment. The idea of choosing “just one” can strike as much fear in your heart as it causes a fluttering sensation. Relax! Just take things one day at a time instead of freaking about how you’ll feel about each other 40 years down the line. An exciting work offer comes near May 9. It will keep you busy, but it could also bring major industry cred.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Love has been known to take you by surprise. This week, it could leave you in a state of utter shock. Chalk it up to an extra-romantic solar eclipse, which may herald proclamations of undying affection, sparkly princess-cut engagement baubles, and (if you’re in baby-making mode) a little pink line on that test. If nothing else, you’ll be motivated to dive back into the dating scene.


Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Style star Venus color-bombs your sensibilities, turning life into a costume party from May 9 to June 2. Rocking an outré style might raise a few eyebrows, but your clothes will also become conversations starters. Good thing, since this Venus cycle makes you a major flirt. Fly your freak flag with pride. It’s the best way to attract someone who will love you for you.

Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Wednesday’s eclipse nudges you to sign on the dotted line and make a dynamic duo official. From shared leases to joint business ventures to marriage certifs, you’ll feel so much better when you put it in writing. For a change, you need clarity, Pisces, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing exactly where you and the other person stand.
