SHARE Georgia Nicols horoscopes for May 1, 2016

Moon Alert

After 9:45 a.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” to do business. The Moon is in Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You might be tempted to spend money on big-ticket items today, which is fine if you can afford it. But make sure you don’t buy something impossibly luxurious and then later regret it. (Veni, vidi, Visa. We came, we saw, we went shopping.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You feel warmhearted to friends or people in group situations. This is why you will be sympathetic to the needs of others and willing to help them. Your energy level is rather laid-back today. This is not the day for a herculean bike ride.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Feelings of sympathy for those who are less fortunate might motivate you to help them today. Even in little ways, you might work behind the scenes with a private gesture to help someone because you care. The Dalai Lama said, “Kindness is the most important thing.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You will find it rewarding to work with a charitable organization today to benefit those who are less fortunate. Or perhaps, you might join forces with others in a small way to help a friend. The bottom line is your sympathy for others is aroused.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

People see you in positive terms today. They admire you. This is why you might be approached by others to do a favor for them or be supportive in a critical way. Because your idealism is aroused, you will probably respond.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The lure of adventure appeals! If you can’t be off on an adventurous escapade, then you will be equally thrilled to learn something new that is exciting and mind-blowing. Basically, you want to escape into different ideas, different places and a new headspace.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

If you have to divide or share something with someone today, you will be more than fair because you feel sympathetic to others, especially if they are needy. Nevertheless, you have to respect your own needs and boundaries. Don’t be a doormat. Don’t give away the farm.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Relations with others will go well today, especially those who are closest to you because you are finely tuned to the needs and wants of others. (You have your Spidey sense working today.) Listen patiently to what someone close to you wants. You’ll know what to do.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Those who are at work today will be sympathetic with co-workers, which is why they might come to you with their troubles. They know you will listen. Furthermore, you might even help them. Others will have a warm, tender moment with a pet.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Romance can blossom today because this is a romantic day. Even if you don’t have a main squeeze, this is still a romantic day. Enjoy social occasions, a pleasant brunch, a walk in the park, hanging out with good friends — because life is a Merchant-Ivory movie today.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a lovely day for a family get-together because people feel warm and gentle toward each other. Family discussions will be mutually sympathetic. Someone might offer to help you with a redecorating project or a home repair. Help is so nice when you need it.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might spend time daydreaming today because your imagination is heightened. All your dealings with others will be more delicate and sensitive, in part because your ESP vibes are strong. You sense things about other people without them saying anything.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Director Wes Anderson (1969) shares your birthday today. You are calm, realistic and yet imaginative. You like to observe your surroundings and communicate these observations to others. Good news! You are now heading into one of the most powerful years of your life — a time of accumulation. This is a good year to buy and sell. Whatever you have done in the past will now ripen because it’s your time of fruition. At last!
