Horoscope: May 8

May 08, 2011|Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): Privately acknowledge to yourself that there is indeed a mysterious world inside of you. The one who recognizes that there is something special in you will capture your heart.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You will draw people close to you without consciously realizing what you are doing or why. This natural magnetism is always in you, but you intuitively know when to tone it down.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): You may wonder why you are regularly chosen to take charge. You don't ask for the job, and yet it is handed to you time and again. It's because you communicate like a leader.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): As much as you'd like to contribute to the conversation, your real job will be to manage it, to keep it positively focused and close off the bad options.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Stay with what's going on in the room. It will be exciting and thought provoking, but try not to let the ideas send you off on a fantasy tangent.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Because you are present when the positive feelings are flowing, the warm glow of this good time will always be associated with you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Your diplomacy nets you more good fortune than aggression ever could. Your intention is not to dominate the other person — you only want to live, love and be happy. Others feel your good will and give you what you want.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): The news shocks, inspires and expands you. You'll learn about the world and then reconsider your reality.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You think of the reasons and ways in which you love your current life. The negative and neutral thoughts will pass quickly, and the powerfully positive feelings will remain.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Humans that are basically the same will express themselves in radically different ways. You see the underlying commonalities between people and find a way to bridge communication gaps.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are present to congratulate your loved ones. Being in on their successes makes you feel connected. But you have your own successes to celebrate too.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Because you're the real deal, walking your talk every day, you are always ready to meet and impress powerful people.

Today's birthday (May 8): You find a niche and contribute in a way that you will be proud of for years to come. You take your time in a relationship through the next 10 weeks, and you will get maximum satisfaction because of this pacing. An unpleasant situation turns around completely in June — freedom at last! August brings financial good fortune. Your lucky numbers are: 21, 39, 17, 8 and 34.
