Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

You’ll begin today with your nose firmly affixed to the grindstone, which will make for some solid productivity. Early this evening, the moon drifts into Gemini and your playful third house, ushering in a lively social energy for the next two and a half days. Shift your focus to networking and relationship-building, which are just as much a part of the success equation for your outgoing sign. Refuel your tanks with a chill night in. If you’re craving company, invite friends over to play board games or re-watch your favorite season of Friends. Keep it casual and order a pizza!

Taurus Daily horoscope

Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

As the moon hovers in Taurus until early evening, your powers of persuasion will be at their peak. Don’t wait another minute to pitch a project to a client or float a daring plan by your friends. Need some outside feedback? Gather the hivemind at your “remote conference room” (aka the nearest donut shop) to brainstorm. As you wind down the day, la luna drifts into Gemini and your practical second house for two and a half days. Time to plug all those creative ideas into an actual project plan and figure out if they’re doable or not.

Gemini Daily horoscope

Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

With the moon in your dreamy twelfth house since Monday, it hasn’t been easy to focus or accomplish anything tangible—except perhaps an epic decluttering mission. But this evening, la luna shifts gears, moving into Gemini for the next two and a half days. You’ll be back in mover-and-shaker mode and can easily make up for lost time. Don’t force yourself to be a super-producer during the workday. Instead, tie up loose ends and concentrate on touchy-feely tasks that call for a nurturing touch. You might even take a personal morning or enjoy a bonding lunch with a long-lost friend.

Cancer Daily horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

All hands on deck! Today’s team-building Taurus moon continues the collaborative efforts you’ve been enjoying since Monday. Letting go feels great; just make sure that you’re delegating duties to people who share your work ethic. While you want to be inclusive, don’t feel bad about tossing a bad apple into the cosmic composter with a “Sorry, this just isn’t working out anymore.” With the moon moving into Gemini and your twelfth house of hidden influences early evening, you might discover that someone in your midst has an agenda at cross-purposes to your own. Show ‘em the door, Bull.

Leo Daily horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

Heavy is the head that wears the crown, o’ royal Lion. With the moon parked in your executive suite since Monday, you’ve been shouldering a lot of responsibility. This comes naturally to your uber-responsible sign, but as the day winds down, you’re ready to pass the baton. Fortunately, the moon is shifting gears early evening, moving into Gemini and your teamwork zone for two and a half days. Don’t worry: Sharing the glory won’t steal from your starpower.

Virgo Daily horoscope

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

Before you pick a lane, Virgo, take a side trip down the road less traveled. We don’t have to tell YOU that it’s always a smart idea to check out your options before making your final selection. Keep your GPS set to spontaneity mode while the moon lingers in your adventurous ninth house until the early evening. The workday is about discovery, not limitation. After you clock out, relax, knowing that you can spend the next couple days refining and defining what is truly of value to you.

Libra Daily horoscope

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

The truth may be stranger than fiction, but you’re determined to get to the bottom of an unsolved mystery. Playing detective could become an all-consuming obsession today, so don the Nancy Drew chapeau and dig. But if you find yourself spinning your wheels by the early evening, let it go. Your suspicious mind could lead you down a dark path, Libra, and no closer to cracking the case. Change the subject, explore some new interests, have dinner with friends who know nothing about this situation. Your fixation with this matter could even disappear before your head hits the pillow. Phew!

Scorpio Daily horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

Loyalty ranks high on your list of essential friend criteria, Scorpio. While you want to be open-minded, red flags have been waving about a certain person. Before you block them on all devices and media, assess: Does that kind of punishment actually fit their “crimes”? If you’re on the fence, try talking this through together. Take the risk and get vulnerable, especially after work, when the moon heads into your house of intimacy. You may discover that this person had no idea you felt so intensely about them. Or you’ll get full confirmation that they’re truly not worth your time. At least you’ll know for sure!

Sagittarius Daily horoscope

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

Honesty may very well be the best policy, Sagittarius, as long as you don’t confuse opinion with fact. Today, you may find it difficult to see past your own moral judgments and accept another person’s perspective. If you find yourself preaching, put the subject on ice. Otherwise you could alienate a key ally who simply marches to a different beat. The spirit of cooperation returns early evening, when the moon moves into Gemini and your harmonious seventh house. There’s a thin line between love and hate—and tonight could find you cozying up to the very person you were battling earlier in the day.

Capricorn Daily horoscope

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

Romance before realism? With the moon lingering in your passionate fifth house since Monday, rose-colored glasses have been your favorite accessory. Enjoy this dreamy spell while it lasts…which is until 7:22 PM EDT to be exact. Creative genius is flowing, so block out time for more imaginative tasks. If you’re flush with spring fever, sneak off for a sexy nooner with the object of your affections. This evening, la luna moves on to Gemini and your sixth house of efficiency for two and a half days. Productivity returns then, so you’ll make up for lost time tomorrow!

Aquarius Daily horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

Home is where your heart has been for the past few days, but this domestic groove is making you wonder if you’re losing your adventurous edge. While pajama dressing might be acceptable in the morning, carry a glamorous change of clothes in your bag. When the moon zips into Gemini early this evening, you’ll be back in your element. Get dressed up for a hump day on the town! Happy hour could turn into a spontaneous dinner and some evening cultural activities. Don’t forget to snap a selfie.

Pisces Daily horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 8

You’re well aware that relationships require reciprocity, Pisces. But in your desire to connect with newer connections, have you neglected your rock-steady crew? With the moon heading into your intimate fourth house early evening, hop back on the “best friends and family plan.” If you sense someone’s feeling miffed, make up for lost time. Treat for dinner or have a long phone call this evening. Or maybe it’s time to bring everyone together for a round of happy hour cocktails. Hello, superconnector!
