Daily horoscope for May 5: YOUR star sign reading, astrology and zodiac forecast TODAY

Sunday is an extra special day with all the planets rising in the east. The Moon, Sun and Uranus are all in the Taurus star sign. Mercury, Venus and Chiron are in Aries, while not too far from there is Neptune in Pisces, with Pluto and Saturn retrograding in Capricorn.

Marina Stoichkova, an astrologer from MarStars, believes there a number of aspects making today “extra special”.

First of all is an opposition between the planets Mars and Jupiter.

This is an interesting occurrence as it only happens approximately once every two years.

She said: “This is a time when will you experience a strong competitive streak.

“We may feel we need to take a difference action in order to get the desired result.

“Or we might be more motivated by others, either by their example or their success.”

However, this aspect also arrives with some risks, such as losing your focus today, or wanting to take on too many things at the same time.

Ms Stoichkova said: “You may over-estimate your own ability or even under-estimate the time needed to achieve your goals.

“But even the oppositions of Jupiter can be positive, for they may provide the motivation and ambition necessary for success.

“Sometimes you may require the support of others, but eventually you will find success.”

Today will also see a quincunx between Mars and Pluto.

This aspect can make you more powerful as well as being important for transformations and boosting confidence.

However, all of these positives can only be achieved through effort.

Today’s final aspect is the semi-sextile between the planets Venus and Neptune.

The MarStars astrologer believes this is a very romantic combination which can help emotionally connecting with other people.

She said: “You should also feel inspired so it is a wonderful aspect for exercising your artistic side.

“So overall Sunday is a very interesting day in an astronomical sense.”
