Your daily horoscopes for Wednesday May 1, 2024

Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

Recruiting candidates for Team Ram? Think twice before you hold an open casting call. Today’s obfuscating angle between open-minded Venus and conniving Pluto in your collaborative eleventh house can make it tough to discern people’s true colors. Someone who appears like a top-notch contender could turn out to be a real viper in the grass. Tune your gut, and don’t fall for first impressions. There’s more here than meets the eye. So either do a deep reference check, or wait until the end of the week when the stars are more supportive.

Taurus Daily horoscope

Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

Everyone wants to steal your swagger, Taurus but it’s only powerful when you know how to turn it on AND off. Today, with domineering Pluto body-checking charismatic Venus in your sign, you’d do better to pull those peacock feathers in. People are rarely charmed by an egomaniac, so find more subtle ways to exude confidence. Stay humble, praise your teammates, and even if you’re in charge, make a point of shining the spotlight on anyone but on yourself.

Gemini Daily horoscope

Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

Warning: System overload! Today penetrating Pluto in your expansive ninth house clashes with generous Venus, and threatens to crash your personal OS if you don’t free up some bandwidth and memory. If you’ve been burning the candle at both ends and taking on WAY more than you can realistically handle, this cosmic confab can help you offload some of the excess. Start by scaling back and simplifying. Then, do what all smart managers do: delegate!

Cancer Daily horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

With garrulous Venus in your collaborative eleventh house, you’re an open book with your friends and teammates, Cancer—which can make for some lively conversation! But punishing Pluto in your zone of intense emotions fires a warning shot: Be careful whom you pour your heart out to today. That chummy co-worker may actually be a frenemy who’s gunning for your job. Gossipping about the boss is never good office politics. So keep your cards to your vest, and try to keep talk light and breezy.

Leo Daily horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

If ONLY love conquered all, Leo! Alas, that old chestnut is more aspirational than factual. And today, with possessive Pluto in your relationship house sending a harsh beam to passionate Venus, you may have to face some unpleasant truths about a business or romantic partnership. Suck it up and initiate a frank discussion about your visions for a shared future. If you’re not headed in compatible directions, you may have to consider a major compromise or else ease off the accelerator as you consider the gravity of that choice.

Virgo Daily horoscope

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

Pump the brakes, Virgo! With idealistic Venus orbiting your boundless ninth house, you don’t know the meaning of too much. If a little is good, too much is NOT better! Today obsessive Pluto locks into a challenging angle with the love planet, illustrating the consequences of overindulgence. So step away from that carb-crasher muffin and absolutely forget about sending that uncomfortably emotional text. While these things might feel good in the moment, fast-forward to an hour from now. The life (and dignity) you save by not acting impulsively may be your own.

Libra Daily horoscope

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

How deep is your love? WAY deep! But it’s not enough to be a romance magnet, Libra. You want to be attracting the right people and situations into your sphere of influence. Today’s faceoff between your radiant ruler, Venus, and seductive Pluto in your amorous zones is powerful bait, but you could easily reel in the wrong catch. You may not realize how powerfully alluring you are now, but try to be mindful of where and to whom you flash your beams. Be a sharp, focused laser, NOT a wide floodlight that draws a swarm of moths.

Scorpio Daily horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

Newsflash: Things don’t actually go away when you sweep them under the carpet. They may be out of sight, but they’re probably not even out of mind. Today’s tangled angle between Venus in your relationship zone and control freak Pluto makes it impossible to ignore that mountain of emotional detritus that’s taking up all your psychic space. No one wants to face their demons, Scorpio (least of all your peace-loving sign), but until you come to grips with this inconvenient reality, you’ll always be settling for second best.

Sagittarius Daily horoscope

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

Skeptical—or cynical? It’s one thing to approach new people and situations with a healthy dose of “let’s wait and see.” But if you take that a step further and assume people have ulterior motives or are out to get you, you cross the line into toxic cynicism. Today, as penetrating Pluto faces off with rosy-eyed Venus, it may be hard to give folks the benefit of the doubt. At least TRY, Sagittarius! Could it be that you’re throwing up defenses to avoid getting too close—or taking a risk in the game of love?

Capricorn Daily horoscope

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

Tighten the grip on your wallet today, Cap. Money could run like water through your fingers, thanks to a faceoff between pleasure-seeking Venus in your glamour zone and controlling Pluto in your house of finances. While you may WANT to shop ’til you drop, something seems to hold you back. And that’s a good thing! If you have some fiscal goals for the year—new car, dream vacay—you’ll need to exercise some serious self-discipline in the spending department. Compromises in the short term can lead to great satisfaction in the long run, so start practicing moderation NOW!

Aquarius Daily horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

Grab your shovel, Aquarius! You may find yourself on a big emotional dig today, thanks to an edgy angle between Venus in your sentimentality zone and excavator Pluto in Aquarius and your house of personal expression. Your cool exterior may crack a bit as deeply buried emotions are unearthed. You could get to the bottom of something that’s been bothering you for a while, but it may unsettle certain family relations. Approach this with love and compassion, and be the first to forgive.

Pisces Daily horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 1

Your powers of observation are sharp today, Pisces but don’t keep them to yourself! With subterranean Pluto in your unconscious twelfth house clashing with sensitive Venus in your communication corner, you could easily slip into a suspicious, paranoid state. As an open-hearted Pisces, you normally have no problem expressing your fears and concerns. Under today’s intense starmap, though, it’s much better to ask questions instead of pointing the finger. In fact, your candor in an awkward situation could win you admiration and strengthen a bond with a friend or coworker.
