MONDAY, MAY 1, 2017

In the pagan tradition, May Day is celebrated with a tall maypole decorated with leaves, ribbons and flowers and erected as a festival centerpiec­e to dance and revel around. In the Celtic tradition, there’s a bonfire instead, from which all light their home hearths. May your heart be made glad with the warmth and bounty of the season.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 1). It’s a year of lifestyle upgrades, as you’ve aimed to live more in line with your values. There are also some aesthetic changes you’ve been wanting to make. Friends and family will support you and then celebrate your success. The sweat you pour into an August project brings big money in November. Cancer and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 22, 30 and 11.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Though necessity is the mother of invention, many inventions are not directly linked to the exploratio­n of a necessity. For example, light bulbs were not the result of a study of candles. Think broadly across many subjects and discipline­s.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Shakespear­e said the best safety lies in fear, yet that kind of safety leads to cowering and hiding, whereas the safety found in preparatio­n and a good defense will lead to far more adventurou­s experience­s.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To set the rules of the environmen­t will be in no way an inconvenie­nce or affront to others; rather. it will have a most favorable effect. The limits you establish will help all to relax and dwell within the boundary of the place and moment. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Though the proceeding­s are friendly in tone, the interactio­n today is more about an exchange of practical knowledge than it is about relationsh­ip building. It goes best when you stay focused and stick to business.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).You’ve something very sincere and heartfelt to get off your chest. For this, you’re better off avoiding the kind of conversati­onal partner who thinks that the opposite of talking is waiting.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s just no time to be self-conscious, because you’re so focused on experienci­ng all you can. You may even dare to spontaneou­sly and publicly sing and dance. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be inspired by a very self-made and highly motivated person. You’d like to direct yourself similarly, and in many ways you already do. You’re already planning your future involvemen­t with this good influence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may fret over what to wear, what topics of conversati­on to keep at the ready and what to eat. These are the worries of a classy person who cares about smooth interactio­ns and winning impression­s.

SAGITTARIU­S (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In the same way that it’s silly to saddle the horse if you’re not going to ride it, it’s a waste of energy to make grand resolution­s that are too hard to keep. You’ll thrive setting small goals; you’ll conquer them quickly.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Home is an emotional state. It exists as much in your imaginatio­n as it does in physical space. If you are at home but you do not feel at home, don’t let the dynamics drag on. They can and should be fixed today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The situation you create and re-create is nothing more than a habit. It may feel like more of a knee-jerk reaction than a choice, but that’s only because the pattern is so ingrained. You can keep or change any part of it you want. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are certain memories, keepsakes and traditions you draw on for sustenance. You’ll do well to make the ritual more deliberate, perhaps by adding something to it or just by recognizin­g its importance.
