Daily horoscopes: May 1, 2017


(March 20 – April 19):

Dot all i’s and cross all t’s before proceeding because willpower won’t do it this time.  Do things by the book and you’ll finish it.


(April 20 – May 20):

A short cut winds up falling short of your goal.  Next time you do this (and you will) go through the proper channels.


(May 21 – June 20):

No sooner do you receive a lump sum than you wind up paying it out to someone else.  It may feel like a zero sum gain but paying down debts puts you ahead.


(June 21 – July 21):

Don’t make any claims that you can’t back up while the Moon is opposite Pluto because the other party will check up on everything you say.  And then some.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Don’t worry if a project or venture stalls.  Another element is being added and you need to allow time for this new development to unfold.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

It’s hard to stop short of a complete emotional rescue, but your loved one or friend will appreciate you believing that he can do the rest on his own.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Drastic measures aren’t necessary.  A reshuffling of the pieces in place provides the solution you’re looking for.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

A customer or client increases the pressure, but you’re in the stronger position.  Don’t yield the field when you don’t have to.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

Sometimes it’s not who you know, but how you drop the name.  Do it with aplomb and you’ll be the bomb.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Don’t be too quick to write off a potential client.  This person may sound ditzy, but s/he still brings something valuable to the table.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

You’ve been through weeks of fret and worry so you’ll be delighted to see a certain matter resolved promptly and with minimum fuss.  Let this be a lesson to you in the future to stress less.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

A vote of confidence comes in the form of a raise or promotion.  It may be more ceremonial than substantial, but it’s flattering nonetheless.
