DIY Astro Guide: What Your Horoscope Means This Week, 5/2/2016
Despite retrograde, you’re feeling pumped to usher in May with an auspicious start. In all aspects of your life, “more is more” has become your new motto. From bringing in more moolah at the end of the work week (it’s time to ask for that raise!) to devoting more time to your métier, don’t apologize for being ambitious. If at first you don’t succeed in getting your way, try, try, try again! Whatever you do, steer clear of personality clashes or petty arguments with people from your past that will only bring you down. Gear up for Mother’s Day with a Sunday brunch date, and scroll down to see what the stars have in store for you in this week’s AstroStyle horoscope.
Put any sibling rivalry on the backburner as you shower your mom with love and affection all this week. Resist the urge to start any petty drama on Mother’s Day by showing a united front or by taking turns wooing your mama. A one-on-one spa date or picnic in the park is exactly what the doctor ordered.
