Horoscope for May 8, 2018


Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or major decisions from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Aquarius into Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

An excellent day for business and commerce! One tiny caveat, however. If you think something is too good to be true, this might be the case. That’s because things are great, financially speaking, but there is a suggestion of things being “over-the-top.” Capisce?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You will enjoy your dealings with others today, especially with partners and close friends, because others are upbeat, happy, gregarious and generous. (You wanted more?) Be grateful for good times and luxurious moments (with a slight caution about going overboard).

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a feel-good day! One way that you feel good is you feel uplifted and inspired about something. You have greater faith in your future or greater faith about something that you might have doubted. So reassuring! A promising future is what you need!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Enjoy hanging out with friends today plus relating to clubs, groups and large conferences. Whatever the situation, you feel confident, friendly and sociable! Be careful not to promise more than you can deliver or to accept responsibilities that might later be challenging. Don’t be a superhero.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’re basking in the praise and admiration of others, which always buoys your Leo soul, and relations with friends, especially artistic, creative types, are smooth and supportive. Nevertheless, exercise caution about going overboard or taking on more than you can handle. You want to deliver — not disappoint. Always.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Travel plans are thrilling! Others might be equally thrilled to explore opportunities in publishing and the media or something to do with medicine, the law and higher education. (Perhaps an exciting course or chance to learn something new?) Relations with bosses are solid. (Maybe cozy?)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You’re involved in discussions about inheritances, shared property or something with red-tape issues. Things look very good. But be careful you don’t overlook an important detail because you are concerned with the broad picture. And don’t give away the farm!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is an excellent day to schmooze with others. Not only are you up for friendly interaction with someone, you will also attract people who are upbeat and fun-loving. Enjoy a long lunch. Make plans to meet someone for Happy Hour. Have fun with your family. Do it!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Work-related travel will delight you today. If you can’t travel, then other good news will come your way because something will happen to make you feel happy. It might expand your world at work, your ideas or your ability to learn new things. Enjoy the ride!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Make plans to socialize with others today. It’s Tuesday, but think Friday. Enjoy schmoozing. Enjoy movies, the theater, the arts, sports events, fun-loving times with friends and family plus playful activities with children. A new romantic interest could be “different.” Hmmm, an interesting learning curve?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an excellent day for real estate. It’s also an excellent day to entertain at home. Family businesses will be profitable and upbeat. However, do be aware that if you have a niggling feeling in the back of your mind that something is “overboard” or “too much,” then you should heed that warning.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Short trips, spontaneous excursions and discussions with others (especially with people from different backgrounds and other countries) will please you today. Do anything that expands your horizons and your experience of life. You will love to learn something new that inspires you!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Author-social activist Naomi Klein (1970) shares your birthday today. You’re sensitive. You are intelligent, organized and fond of planning for the future. Although serious, you see the funny side of life. This year is about personal responsibilities, family and service to others. Take care of yourself so you can help others. Explore the arts. Enroll in a class. Nurture relationships you value. Personalize your home with memories of these relationships.
