This week is all about manifesting and breaking down your big goals into actionable and achievable tasks. Don’t hold back and go for it. Here’s the horoscope for May 2-8.
1. Aries (March 21–April 19)
Dear Aries, it is time to get some cash in that bank account of yours and that won’t happen till you find yourself a job that actually pays you well. Just because you are comfortable in your current position, you are not seeing that there are bigger and better avenues waiting for you. So, remove those rose-coloured glasses and start seeing the red flags around you including your toxic work environment. Also, any kind of relationship, personal or professional, needs some evaluation from you this week.
AAE Pro Tip: Work on nurturing your mind and stay away from anything that holds you back, like your mom or an ex.
2. Taurus (April 20–May 20)
My darling Taurus, a very happy birthday! While the birthday month is all about splurging and making yourself feel important, we must learn to draw some boundaries. Treating yourself to nice things is a great idea as long as you don’t end up broke by the end of the month. So, let’s focus on budgeted festivities and luxuries because being practical about these things can help you enjoy them without crying once the birthday month is over.
AAE Pro Tip: Be wise and send your G-Pay code to all rishtedaars so they can send in some generous birthday wishes.
3. Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Even though it is Taurus season, the limelight will somehow be on you, Gemini, so be on your best behaviour. This is also a great time to let go of any fears or insecurities that have been holding you back. Because when life gives you centre stage, you don’t squirm around behind the curtains. Instead, you go up there, put on a brave face, and take on whatever comes at you fearlessly. So, have faith in yourself and you’ll be able to pull through the week gracefully.
AAE Pro Tip: Cracking jokes as a defence mechanism in awkward situations is a great idea this week.
4. Cancer (June 21–July 22)
The horoscope for May 2-8 brings a refreshing change for you. Now that you have started to keep yourself distracted and away from addressing your emotions, things might seem a bit brighter. But emotions have a way of creeping back in, so this week, you might slowly need to give in to them. This is a great way to take down your walls and set yourself free from any emotional baggage that is weighing you down. Don’t be afraid, Cancer, you’re surrounded by people who love and support you.
AAE Pro Tip: When things get insufferable, a dash of whiskey in your coffee can be really helpful.
5. Leo (July 23–August 22)
You’ve been off track for a bit, Leo, and it is okay to wander aimlessly sometimes. But the horoscope for May 2-8 will finally bring you back in the game with a turn of events. You’ll start to realise that you have been holding back from going full steam ahead and not utilising your potential. And the Taurus season is here to give you that little nudge and set you off in the right direction. There is a lot of work that needs to be done in order to achieve your goals, so get ready to give it everything.
AAE Pro Tip: Get back to spending some time doing things that you enjoy and letting yourself be.
6. Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Big changes are in store for you, Virgo, and I know you are always prepared to tackle anything. But just because you’ve dealt with similar stuff before, it doesn’t mean you can’t take a minute to process it. Change can be scary, my dearest, so taking your time instead of rushing into things will make sure you don’t regret your decisions. The weekly horoscope asks you to put your mind and heart into whatever you are doing so you don’t end up feeling overwhelmed.
AAE Pro Tip: Be vocal about your concerns, no matter how small you might think they are.
7. Libra (September 23–October 22)
Chop chop, Libra, it is time to get back to work and take some important decisions. The horoscope for May 2-8 asks you to encourage the people around you and make them feel comfortable talking to you. This will help you understand their perspective and even get you some fresh ideas that you can try. The week ahead brings some turbulence, but if you stay true to yourself, you’ll be able to make it through without a scratch.
AAE Pro Tip: There’s plenty of fish in the sea, so go fishing and catch yourself some!
8. Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
You get what you deserve in life, so you better let the universe show you what you deserve and not lower your worth for anyone. You’ll be appreciated for just being yourself and that is what you need from the people around you. And if someone can’t value your time and emotions, you really need to take out the axe and cut some ties. It’s easier said than done, my love, but deep down, even you know that’s the right thing to do. So, trust your instincts and make the right decisions for your own sake.
AAE Pro Tip: This week calls for some important decisions and the best decisions are made drunk, so sip away!
9. Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
The horoscope for May 2-8 tells me someone is living their best life by not having a care in the world! Well, good for you, Sagittarius, because Taurus season is all about giving yourself the best treatment. You’ve come a long way in your romantic relationships and you have evolved. But this week, I must remind you to be honest and not run away from communicating whatever is on your mind. Because communication is key, quite literally for you this time.
AAE Pro Tip: When things go south, you must mute, block, ignore, and focus on doing your thing.
10. Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Looks like someone’s bucket of emotions is overflowing and you clearly don’t know how to handle the spill. My darling Capricorn, the only way out of this crisis is to deal with things rather than shutting yourself down. It won’t be easy, but it will help you in the long run at least. You are in charge of making your choices, so don’t worry about anything other than what makes you feel sane. Create your own path and choose the battles that are worth fighting and let go of the ones that don’t deserve your time.
AAE Pro Tip: Let your creative side out and reconnect to an old hobby for a little escape from the ordinary.
11. Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
The horoscope for May 2-8 tells me that work has been getting dreadfully exhausting and it is time to take a break. So, cut yourself some slack and take a back seat to observe what is happening around you. Participate in discussions and conversations that pique your interest but let that be it. Don’t get into it too much or you might end up with another project and a dramatic breakdown on your hands. So, slow down and only pick what you can actually deliver.
AAE Pro Tip: Some drama might be unfolding in your life and an ex might show up uninvited, so be prepared.
12. Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Dear Pisces, you know you have it in you to make big things happen but something keeps holding you back. Is it your uncertainty, the fear of judgement, or lack of faith in yourself? Because, this week, you’ll get plenty of chances to make the final call, and if you are unsure about things, you might miss some really major breakthroughs. So, focus on trusting your instincts and don’t think twice if you feel something could be worth it.
AAE Pro Tip: The kitchen is the only place where trusting a cookbook more than your instincts is a good idea, bb.
Have a great week, gorgeous people!
