Your Daily Horoscope | Friday, May 1

01 May

Aries | March 21 - April 19

A positive outlook is possible today, as long as you focus on the activities that bring you joy. Yes, you can control your feelings, and it’s as simple as choosing the best feeling emotion possible. It helps to listen to online talks from a prominent person you’ve always admired. Learning how they cope with stress can be helpful when dealing with feelings of loneliness or isolation. Additionally, ignore a friend who prides themselves on being the smartest person in the group. Instead of entering a pointless competition, let them bask in the spotlight. 

Taurus | April 20 - May 20

The sentimental Moon makes a supportive angle to Venus, your ruling planet, today. Taking a walk down memory lane could be a pleasurable experience for you now. It’s a great time to sort through photos, read old letters, and listen to music from your childhood. Don’t be surprised if you’re inspired to start a creative project after indulging in a little nostalgia. But you may get interrupted when an authority figure criticizes you in some way; try not to take it personally. It may be that they're feeling pressured and taking it out on you. 

Gemini | May 21 - June 20

Your star power is obvious, making this an ideal day to mingle with as many people as possible. If you have a video chat or conference call scheduled, you're sure to make a great impression. People appreciate your intelligent contributions, as well as your delicious sense of humor. Later this evening, you may encounter a cultural clash of some kind. Resist passing judgment on someone whose outlook is radically different than yours. If everyone were the same, the world would be boring. Eventually, what initially irritated you could melt into appreciation, paving the way to a friendship.

Cancer | June 21 - July 22

Developing a profitable project might be at the top of your list today. You could be toying with the idea of selling your handiwork via an online boutique. People are yearning for goods that aren’t mass produced in an effort to support local artists. Being able to personalize these products will make them even more desirable. However, money concerns may throw you off kilter, but instead of panicking, imagine yourself living the life you desire. If you can cultivate feelings of prosperity, you just might attract the abundance you crave.

Leo | July 23 - August 22

You could be radiating confidence today, helping you attract support from every corner. Contributing to a group project will be especially gratifying now, as everyone will seek to impress you. Unfortunately, the day could take a turn when a pushy person in your life begins to wear on your nerves. You may have gone around and around with them previously, and you’re tired of being pressured to make a decision you don’t want to make. It’s time to set some boundaries, even at the risk of ruffling a few feathers.

 Virgo | August 23 - September 22

If your professional life has been uncertain, that could soon change as a job opportunity may become available today; be ready to apply for it. It's possible this position will not only give you the sense of security you've been craving, but you’ll also have the opportunity to acquire valuable skills. After a full day, beware of burning the candle at both ends tonight. Instead of tackling yet another household chore, opt to retire early. Getting good rest helps you shake off the week, setting you up to have an enjoyable weekend.

Libra | September 23 - October 22

Brainstorming with intelligent people could stimulate your own creativity today. Or, it could be as simple as feeling a burst of inspiration from something someone says in a group text. Take whatever ideas you cook up and run with them. In fact, someone with experience in this field will be happy to give you feedback. Listen to whatever nuggets of wisdom they offer up and be willing to make small changes for the sake of making this creation exceptional. Someone with your extraordinary talent shouldn’t rest on your laurels.

Scorpio | October 23 - November 21

You could command respect at a virtual meeting or interview today. Make sure you look the part of a sophisticated professional, as it may help you attract the lucrative assignment you've been after. Actually, you might find this to be a nice change of pace from lounging around at home in yoga pants and an old t-shirt. But the day won't be all about work when a household duty requires your attention. If it's a repair you've been putting off, make sure to take care of it now. Don’t let a minor problem grow into a bigger one.

Sagittarus | November 22 - December 21

The chance to learn from a talented teacher could fall into your lap today. Sign up for a spot in an online class they're hosting -- you won’t want to miss this fabulous opportunity for growth. This instructor’s warm enthusiasm will help you reach heights of excellence you never thought were possible. This evening, you may encounter difficulties that throw a wrench in your plans. Instead of falling victim to anger, relax and go with the flow. You'll eventually realize this was a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things.

Capricorn | December 22 - January 19

A passionate conversation could put a sparkle in your eyes and a spring in your step today. It's possible you encounter someone online after joining a forum or community that’s dedicated to your favorite subject. The more you talk, the more they may make you laugh with their irreverent observations. It will be nice to find somebody who is as ardent as you are about this topic. On another note, be mindful of filling an emotional void with a spending spree. It will help you save money and heartache down the road.

Aquarius | January 20 - February 18

Your creative juices are flowing like a mighty river, and someone who admires your talent might ask to form a partnership. What exactly it is you work on together is unimportant. The key is to join forces with those who can bring your work to the next level. Seek an alliance with someone who is warm, outgoing, and funny. This afternoon, you’ll be eager to promote your agenda. Don’t get defensive if you encounter resistance. Explain why your plan will work best in a calm, objective way.

Pisces | February 19 - March 20

Concentrating on a labor of love will make time fly today. It’ll be fun to put the finishing touches on a creative project that’s close to your heart. Much of your inspiration comes from childhood memories. A relative, television show, or piece of music will prompt you to make something that is both beautiful and playful. Unfortunately, someone may try to bring you down a notch this evening. Instead of buying into this false premise, make a list of your ten greatest attributes. This will give way to justifiable confidence.
