Horoscopes for the week of 5/8

From Mystic J; Permanent resident of Room 1313, Hollywood Tower Hotel.

Aries (March 21–April 19)
You cannot avoid modernity. Though you look to the past for answers and the future does tend to repeat itself, not all will be the same. You must see change for what it is.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)
A lot of days you feel like nothing more than a cog in the machine. But what if you had a chance this week to find a new station in life and reason for being alive? Opportunity is closer than you think.

Gemini (May 21–June 21)
Use your internal optimism as a shield against the negative forces the world is going to throw at you this week. That shield and the sword of your internal compass will be your saving grace.

Cancer (June 22–July 22)
This week, you’ll have to work on a project with someone you can’t stand. Life is full of obstacles and you can use this as motivation to do your best instead of just being bummed out about it.

Leo (July 23–August 22)
Befriend an odd duck this week. You will be surprised how much they can not only teach you about yourself but also about how you (and they) see the world.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)
The feelings of friendship you hold are worth considering. Not only do the people you love influence your life but they also have a profound influence on your social attitudes.

Libra (September 23–October 23)
There is no cure for your personality. Anyone who would tell you that you need to change should first consider changes in themselves. You may be abrasive to some, but at least you are who you are.

Scorpio (October 24–November 21)
You can learn a lot by walking a mile in someone else’s shoes. Not only could a transformative period give you a new attitude but it might show you other parts of yourself that you’ve been missing.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Trying to escape your destiny is futile. Though you may have some times in the middle where you seem to curve away from your life, you will always come back to it in the end. You may just be around a mountain.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
What kind of relationship do you have with your significant other? Examine it this week. If it’s all strategy and no love, flip the script and see how it might feel to just love without consequence.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
You may feel like you’re at the end of your rope without a lifeline left. But why is this a bad thing? Your innermost power will be revealed when there’s nothing left to lose.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Love is the most powerful force in the universe. To deny love is to deny the universe itself. If you have the strength, embrace love and think nothing more of it.
