Your Stars This Week by Stella Wilder

Your Stars This Week For May 02, 2021

ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may not understand fully just what is going on around you this week, but experimentation can yield a few timely and important answers. Don't be afraid! (April 5-April 19) -- You are more concerned with labels than you need to be -- and it can actually do you harm if you keep it up. You can dispense with this and one other bad habit this week.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- A shock to the system must not push you too far away from yourself this week. You must always be aware of where you stand and what you have to gain or lose. (May 6-May 20) -- You'll enjoy doing a routine thing in a new way this week -- and this is likely to lead to an increase in productivity. Someone is waiting for you to deliver the goods.

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You can pull things off with a little more "polish" than usual this week. Others will be attracted to you for reasons other than the obvious, surely. (June 7-June 20) -- You'll be compelled to do certain things in ways that are out of character this week -- but you'll discover something important about yourself in the process. Keep it up!

CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may find yourself waiting impatiently this week for certain developments that will allow you to put a new plan into motion. Be sure it's not too late! (July 8-July 22) -- You may be startled by someone's opening move this week, but you can surely follow suit and find you have a winning hand. You may want to join forces with this "rival."

LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Keeping secrets is not such a good idea this week -- especially when the information you have is essential to another's health or safety. Share what you know! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Your prospects are good this week, but you may not be feeling quite as confident as you had hoped. This is when a good long look in the mirror will help you out, surely.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Working with others will not only help you shore up your collaborative skills, but it will also teach you something you need to know about your "inner life." (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Keep tabs on what another is doing this week, as you may be required to jump in and lend a hand when things get tricky. You're affected by interpretations of facts.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- It's a good week for you to face what you've long tried to avoid or ignore. Believe it or not, the work you've done recently has prepared you for this moment. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You'll want to review a recent job and assess the quality of your work even after you've received glowing reviews. You'll surely notice things that no one else can.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Someone may be throwing things in all directions this week in order to shake you up some -- but you know what's going on and can maintain your equilibrium. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You're not about to play the victim this week, nor are you well-equipped to take on the role of martyr. You must resist any attempts to confine you to such definitions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may be deceived by someone who is playing his or her role better than you are. This won't last long, however; you'll soon know the truth. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- When you speak with others, you will want to speak the truth and avoid any kind of descriptions that invite misinterpretation. Straight shooting is rewarded this week.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may be feeling a little less prepared this week than usual, but when it's time to begin you will have to -- ready or not. Your state of mind matters! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You will want to make clear distinctions this week between what you see and hear and what you know to be the truth. Much depends upon your willingness to explore further.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Your pragmatism will be put to the test this week, and many of your endeavors will require you to keep your feet firmly on the ground. Avoid flights of fancy. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You'll want to avoid any sort of generality this week as you examine the world around you. Dig deeply and you may uncover a truth that only you will recognize at first.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 6) -- You can add things to the mix this week that will both accelerate your work and improve your accuracy. Don't get used to this, however; it won't last forever! (March 7-March 20) -- The rules and regulations will apply to you this week perhaps more than anyone else. You may find yourself steered by circumstances more than usual -- and you must adjust.
