Daily horoscope for May 6, 2021

General Daily Insight for May 6, 2021

There’s an intense yet exciting vibration powering up the skies as pleasure-loving Venus aligns in a harmonious trine with alchemical Pluto at 7:25 am, encouraging us to lead with our hearts, as well as our wallets. We should watch out for power struggles surrounding romance and finances, but it also might become possible to assert ourselves in these areas in ways we normally cannot. Thankfully, the Moon will come together with dreamy Neptune in the afternoon, helping to ease any tension Pluto has stirred up.



March 21-April 19

It appears you’ve become a bit of a workhorse lately, and it's important to take time out of the hectic rat race to give yourself space to just chill. Take this day to focus on self-care and set aside time to really nurture yourself. Even if you can’t dedicate a whole day to spa treatments and meditation, a half hour of quiet time can do real wonders for your spirit. You’ll be able to go that much further in the future.



April 20-May 20

A relationship with a friend may be feeling a bit strained. If there are any people in your life who seem to be walking on eggshells for you -- or perhaps it’s the other way around -- today would be a good time to extend a kind word and see if you two can’t become more comfortable with one another and patch up any misunderstandings that might be bogging you down. There's healing energy in the air that will make it easy to soothe any ruffled feathers.


May 21-June 20

You are skilled in coming up with lots of ways to do something, but if you have too many possible paths in front of you, it may be impossible to wind up exactly where you want to. Take some time today to focus on where exactly you’re aiming to get to, then make sure the path you’re currently on is the best one to lead you there. If it seems you’ve been on the wrong course, then it’s time to make a correction.


June 21-July 22

You get by with a little help from your friends, but today, it might seem like you get by with a lot of help. A pal, or even a number of them, could emerge from the woodwork when you least expect it, offering you the assistance you’ve been needing to make your dreams come true. Even if you don’t feel like you’re lacking in this area, you will be surprised by how much people can bring into your life if you only give them the chance.


July 23-August 22

There is a lot of progress to be made today, and that progress will lead to rewards if you only put in the effort, so roll up your sleeves and get to work. Don’t worry that it is going to be difficult or stressful, however -- thanks to a beautiful alignment between Venus and Pluto in your career sectors, you won’t even break a sweat; not unless you want to. There’s money on the table, Leo, so reach out and take it.


August 23-September 22

There's the potential for drama today, so don’t let anyone pull the wool over your eyes. That’s not to say that someone means to try and trick you or that you need to be overly suspicious, but if someone offers you a deal that seems too good to be true, then it probably is indeed just that. If they press you to take them up on it, ask for time before you offer a response. Don’t let anyone rush you.


September 23-October 22

You are blessed with drive, energy, and passion today thanks to an exceptionally powerful alignment involving your ruling planet, Venus. A very rare opportunity is being granted to you to reach out for whatever you might desire and take hold of it with all your strength. This is certainly not a time to sit back on your laurels; you have the power to move mountains under this energy, so don’t miss this chance to advance your interests.


October 23-November 21

As a Scorpio, you often prefer to do things on your own, but today, you will benefit from partnering up with someone who has qualities that you, yourself, might be lacking. It’s never fun to try and identify our own weaknesses, but push yourself to meditate for a moment on the matters that keep you limited. If you acknowledge them and find someone who compliments them, then you’re going to be that much more effective. Your Wonder Twin is out there.


November 22-December 21

You have a chance to earn a reward for a job well done while both your work and money sectors are supported. Whether or not you have paid work to tend to, make a point to really dedicate yourself to the tasks in front of you. You don’t have to do this by yourself; if you have co-workers or other supporters who can help, then go ahead and ask them; you’ll be more productive together than apart. Don’t let this opportunity get away.


December 22-January 19

The universe wants you to follow your heart today and not let anything keep you from your passions. Whatever you dream of, whatever brings you joy, go on and make it the center of your day. Spend some time being creative, then some time indulging in yourself -- perhaps even changing up your appearance with a few splurges -- then top it off with time with someone you care about. You have a ticket to a cosmic pleasure cruise, so hop on board.


January 20-February 18

Your fantasies are rich and rewarding right now, so take some time away from reality and give yourself permission to daydream, seeking out inspiration in places you don’t normally look. There’s some beautiful nugget of gold circulating somewhere outside of your conscious, just beyond where you can see it, but if you let your mind wander, you may get a better sense of it. Go on and see what magical places you can discover within you.


February 19-March 20

You could have a really lovely time today thanks to a platonic pal, or even a whole group of them. Friendly interactions and the sharing of ideas are especially rewarding now. The universe is bringing bounty your way, so perhaps a friend will turn you on to a new opportunity, be it professional, romantic, or otherwise. If no one is knocking on your metaphorical door, reach out to people in your circle and you’ll be sure to discover something truly lovely.
