For Monday, May 1, 2017:
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Financial implications play into professional and personal issues. You could feel as if someone who has clout is being unusually manipulative. Decide to change your approach and not get caught up in other people’s issues. Tonight: Make it OK to be more impulsive.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Reach out to someone who makes a big difference in how you view situations. Get feedback, and perhaps a new path will reveal itself. You might have to break past certain barriers, which seem to stem from your background or childhood. Tonight: Speak your mind.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Listen to your inner voice, especially when a financial decision is pending. You could have a difficult time coming up with the right solution. You might feel as if you have to convince an associate of why you are correct in following a certain path. Tonight: Take some personal time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You know what you want, and it will come out in a meeting or gettogether. Understand your limits, which might be defined by other boundaries. You might consider adding more spontaneity to a key interaction. Let the other party see the real you. Tonight: Where people are.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Your intuition tells you to hold back, yet your mind believes you should forge ahead. Weigh the pros and cons of a decision before deciding which approach to take. If possible, seek out a trusted friend for his or her feedback. Tonight: A close loved one gives you a minor jolt.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Your creativity flourishes. You are likely to see a difference in others’ responses to you; even a child delights in your imaginative ideas. Do not overthink a problem. You might need to take some time to process your feelings. Tonight: Do some exercise to alleviate your stress.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You might want to isolate a problem and get past the immediate implications. A family matter is not likely to support your exit. You will need to stop and handle this situation, even though you probably don’t want to. Tonight: Spend some quality time with a friend.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Respond to others’ questions. Your openness allows you to understand that something else is going on. Talk through a problem more openly, and find out why you resist what is considered to be the obvious solution. Detachment helps you to move forward. Tonight: Accept an offer.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You have little choice but to approach a situation differently. A conversation might be brisk, perhaps even difficult, but it could be a source of unusual ideas. You’ll pounce on one idea that is brought up. Start working with those involved. Tonight: Choose a favorite pastime.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Do not allow yourself to be charmed and talked into a solution that might not feel right or good to you. Toy with it during the next few days and see how you feel. A close friend or loved one could be a source of some interesting feedback. Tonight: Let the fun begin!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You might want to see life from a new perspective, but perhaps you can’t decide how to get there. Someone close to you will play devil’s advocate and help pave the way. Start sharing more, and more feedback will come forward. Tonight: Make it an early night, if you can.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
A conversation becomes the foundation of some fun and perhaps a spontaneous get-together. You might want to laugh at the silliness of the moment. Your popularity is particularly high right now, so take advantage of it. Tonight: Make the most of the moment.
