Your Daily Horoscope For Friday, May 4


(March 21st to April 19th)

Last week’s full moon in Scorpio brought with it a sense that you are (finally) on the right path.

Hang on to that good feeling as Taurus season continues.

To do: write yourself a note or a short journal entry about what it feels like when something is going right. It will be a beacon on the hill the next time you are struggling with some other aspect of your life.


(April 20th to May 21st)

It’s your season boo!!! Taurus is in the air. It’s time to take stock and evaluate your relationships and where you are spending your time, money, and energy. Are your partners and projects growing with you? Or are they getting in the way of your growth? This is the time to figure that out.

To do: Reflect on the year that has passed since last Taurus season and make goals for the coming year.

(May 22nd to June 21st)

You’ve been thinking a lot about the past this week which has seemed strange with all the fresh air outside and the imminent promise of summer. Don’t ignore your nostalgia, it’s trying to tell you something. What did you have that you still feel like you lost? This next season will bring the opportunity around again, don’t let it get away this time.

To do: Spend reflective time doing yoga or meditating on what you feel like is missing from your life so that you can recognize it when you next have the opportunity to have it.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Full moons are especially powerful for Cancer, a sign ruled by the moon. Last week’s was also in Scorpio, a fellow water sign. If you’ve been feeling more emo than usual (which is saying something), relax, it’s just the normal cycle of the moon having an effect on you. You’ll be back on track soon enough.

To do: Reach out to people who support you, take a weekend off to soothe yourself. Sleep in and catch up on Netflix.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You’ve been focused on your career more than usual lately and it might not seem like it has yet paid off. This is just the result of last week’s full moon in Scorpio stirring up both passion and rare feelings on insecurity in you. As the dust settles this week you’ll find the acknowledgement of your efforts you’ve been waiting for. Be patient.

To do: The best way to combat that unfamiliar insecurity is to make a gratitude list. Make a list of 10 things you are thankful for.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You’ve been feeling like you can’t focus on anything lately, which is uncharacteristic for you. Don’t freak out, this out of sortness is temporary, just a fun little side effect of the full moon in Scorpio. Stick to your beloved routine and all will be back to normal soon enough.

To do: Do something you’re good at, it will cut through the chaos and make everything make sense again.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

The fresh air of spring means something special to you. This is a time of subtle renewal in your life. You’ve been spending less time with friends and more time reflecting on your future. Don’t read into this too much, it’s just a natural cycle and you’ll be back to your old self by the next full moon.

To do: Worry less about what your friends think. They understand that even a social butterfly like you needs down time.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Your mind is usually occupied with all the world domination you’re planning but lately someone else has been popping up. You can blame last week’s full moon in Scorpio, an especially brooding time for you dear Scorpion. You’re reminiscing fondly about someone from the past. If you think it’s at all salvageable, now is the time to reach out. If in the light of day, you still feel like moving on is for the best, stay the course.

To do: Use your full moon energy to be gentle with those around you. A little softness from you will go a long way.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You’ve been feeling lost and unfocused lately. Last week was atypically emotional and though you’ve calmed, you have yet to regain the laid back energy you usually possess. Don’t worry Sag, you will return to your comfort zone shortly, just use this time of unease to identify what, exactly, is feeling “off” in your life so that you can take steps to fix it.

To do: Find balance.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

You’ve been working hard all winter setting the foundation for this year. You can take a moment (or a whole weekend!) to relax. You know yourself, you’ve done a good job. Stopping to smell the roses isn’t going to derail any of the progress you’ve made. Chill out before you burn out.

To do: Have fun!!!!


(January 21st to February 18th)

The significance of last week’s full moon in Scorpio is a newfound sense of purpose. You understand what you want to accomplish this summer and it isn’t lazy day after lazy day. Now is the time to spend a weekend in thoughtful reflection and planning. Write down what your goals are. Reach out to people you want to partner with. Borrow a book from the library that will inspire you.

To do: Don’t procrastinate.


(February 19th to March 20th)

The full moon in Scorpio has you feeling confident and sociable!! You’ve emerged from your normal retreat status and squeezed a month’s worth of socializing into the past week. You might even be worried that you can’t possibly keep up indefinitely — don’t worry, it’s just a cycle and you’ll be back to your independent self shortly.

To do: Congratulate yourself on leaving your comfort zone. Even if you celebrate by spending all weekend journaling and watching Netflix in bed. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
