Daily Horoscope for May 5, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino
If Today is Your Birthday
The Moon and Neptune joining their energies is guiding you to use your imagination in a new way. This applies to all facets of your life, from your most creative expressions to your intimate contacts to your work-a-day affairs. Soften your mind and stretch yourself into the possibilities. Once you do that even a little, you'll unleash an astonishing creative flow. You share birthdays with Nellie Bly, Tammy Wynette and Craig David.
Aries (March 20-April 19) -- Lately you've seen the consequences of not being fully honest with yourself. This has taught you that staying out of denial is the only sane way to live your life. That takes devotion each and every day. Resolve to make this a firm commitment to yourself for the next few weeks. Get instant access to your Aries reading!

Taurus (April 19-May 20) -- You can blend fantasy and reality in an unusual way; which is to say, take some opportunity to live your dreams. That might mean expressing yourself in some way, or initiating an experience that you actually make happen. Then keep experimenting until you have a breakthrough.

Gemini (May 20-June 21) -- Sidestep your insecurities or self-judgments and take a positive view of yourself. If something you said yesterday is bothering you, offer it up and be grateful people have plenty on their minds. You don't need their approval; you need your own bold endorsement of your life and choices.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -- As one of the great political masterminds once wrote, "It's not what you say. It's what people hear." That holds true for you today. When assessing the impact or influence of any words that you speak or write, consider carefully how they will come across to others.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) -- Ensure that others are being honest with you about money. The only way to do that is to make up a list of questions and get clear answers; and to do a thorough review of the figures over time. Make sure you study the whole column of numbers, not just the bottom line.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) -- Imagination is more powerful than knowledge because it addresses what does not yet exist, or what is not yet understood. Imagination is the fiery edge of awareness. Open your eyes and let it light your way forward and into the unknown. The life you want doesn't exist yet.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) -- The worst things you fear about yourself are not true. It would be fair to say, though, that you know you're self-critical, even to the point of perfectionism. What you must remember is that nobody has the power to judge you, even if they pretend to. Not even you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) -- No matter how much you try to control your image, it won't work. You may as well just be who you are and forget about how others perceive you. That's a useless endeavor that will only distract you from handling some tricky territory at work. Keep your wits about you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) -- You might varnish the truth or leave out a few details in order to keep the peace and get the job done. Not everyone is entitled to all information anyway. Currently, the only "need to know" basis applies to the information you need to help you get a grip.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -- Be careful that you're not haplessly wandering into a thicket as you take a fresh, new attitude toward your family. This is not about whether they're wonderful, charming people who were so kind as to give you food as a child. It's about what you want to do with your life.
Aquarius Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- The truth matters, and you need to be more skeptical of what you hear. Today in particular, believing anything on faith, or believing at all, may prove troublesome. Set a higher standard, such as, "based on the available facts, this seems to be true, at the moment."

Pisces Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Leave certain others to their own devices and they're sure enough to unravel. Yes, this has something to do with how they're experiencing your energy, though don't take credit for it. You can choose to hang out with people who like to have the same kind of fun as you do.
