Horoscopes: Tuesday, May 2, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When the sounds, sights, and tastes that speak to your heart and body are the same as another person's this builds a sense of belonging and comfort.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don't need to forgive anyone or be forgiven for anything. This is a day to accept the way it is and build from there without rehashing or giving any focus at all to the way things were before.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone loves a pretty package. Today, such a promise will intrigue and attract many. You'll be drawn in just like the others. But you won't stay "in" if there's nothing compelling inside.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Sometimes, the unaccepted and seemingly unacceptable thing is the truer thing. You're willing to look at it without taking offense or being astonished.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This electric energy that buzzes in your body when you engage with an exciting idea or pursuit is evanescent - but very real. So act on it while the sensation is alive in you! Otherwise you'll miss out.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You admire those with the means and taste to cultivate exceptional collections, but you will be more moved by those with a knack for beautifully cultivating the ordinary.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What you face today is not a difficult situation, and perhaps that's the problem. Challenge engages you. Create your own secret goal for the situation. That will help you step into the game.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have so much love to give, and today it radiates from you in many forms, including the words of encouragement you lend, your friendly smile and your smile with all the mischief in it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You must fulfill your duty precisely today. If you do more than your duty, it's interference, and it could upset the balance and undermine others. And of course you never want to do less than your duty.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The obstacles of the day will not be big dull rocks in the path. They are living decision-makers, and they are not stupid. They will yield to influence, persuasion and also stern resolve.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You've a kind, soft heart. However, today it will be very wise for you to avoid getting mixed up with the chronically unlucky types who are perpetual victims and bottomless pits of need.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll be so attracted to the person who exhibits opposite qualities from yours - the "yin" to your "yang" or vice versa. You'll swirl together and help one another roll along.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 2). Your identity will shift this solar return. You no longer relate to certain pursuits; other interests will outshine them. Craving the community of like minds, new involvements will change your schedule and your priorities. Your enthusiasm for a team will be highlighted in June and will lead to a subsequent quest. Aries and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 28, 9, 30, 22 and 18.
