SHARE Georgia Nicols horoscopes for May 8, 2017

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions after 5:45 p.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Libra.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Oops! This is a tricky Monday, so be on guard. For starters, the Moon is opposite your sign, which means you have to compromise and cooperate with others. Expect the unexpected. Avoid power struggles with partners and close friends. Definitely zip thy lip today!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your work routine will not flow smoothly today. Just accept this. Computer crashes and equipment breakdowns are likely. Therefore, allow extra time so that you have wiggle room to deal with the unexpected today. Fortunately, with the Sun in your sign you are favored. (That’s something.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Be patient with family members at breakfast. Be particularly vigilant to avoid accidents with children. However, this is a classic day for hissy fits with kids, so do be patient. Likewise, sports events and romantic relationships will have bumps and blowups. Yikes!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Do what you can to promote mellow feelings at breakfast and with family members today because people are impatient. Hiccups and delays will frustrate. You might burn the toast. You might run out of coffee. A low blow indeed! Avoid arguments. Keep the peace.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be alert today. You’ll avoid making a verbal gaffe or having a physical accident today because both these things are possible. Therefore, go slowly and be mindful and aware.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Keep an eye on your money scene today because something unusual might occur. Weird way to begin your week! You might find money; you might lose money. A financial argument about shared property, taxes,  insurance or even an inheritance might occur.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is an emotionally up and down day, which is a tough way to start your week. Therefore, have a second cup of coffee and get in the right frame of mind so that you can steer your day. Expect detours and emotional entanglements. Stay chill.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

There will be interruptions to your day. But hey, this is the case for everyone as well as you. For your sign, the interruptions will be more private and behind the scenes. Others might not be aware of them but you will feel an emotional hiccup. Oops!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

At some point today, you might have an upsetting exchange with a friend or a member of a group. Something unexpected will trigger it and then lead to an emotional blowup. Yikes! Or it could be something milder. The bottom line is you have to go slowly today and be patient with everyone.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Use tact and diplomacy when dealing with parents, bosses and VIPs today because things could quickly get out of hand and someone will be in a snit! You don’t want this. Do not wake the sleeping giant. Remain low-key and keep everyone happy because life is easier that way.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Travel plans might be canceled, delayed or changed today, so do be aware of this. In fact, dealings with foreign countries and other cultures might bring surprises and disputes. Similarly, discussions about politics, religion and race issues could be explosive. Keep a low profile.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Avoid disputes about shared property, debt and inheritances today because they will be nasty and emotionally draining. (You need this like a fish needs a bicycle.) Be as low-key as possible so that you can start this week in a pleasant way.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Singer Enrique Iglesias (1975) shares your birthday today. You are sensible, intelligent and direct. You like to plan for the future. This year will bring excitement, adventure and more freedom than you have experienced in recent years. It’s a time to move away from old routines and feel loose and free! For many, a major change will occur, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2008. It’s time to test your future!
