Here's your horoscope for Monday, May 6

It's a slow and sleepy start to the week, as the moon won't appear until late afternoon. If you don't have time to hit the snooze button throughout the day, at least consider having an extra glass of iced latte.

Everyone will feel more productive once the Moon enters grounded Taurus in the late afternoon, so catch up on any unfinished tasks from earlier in the day and start thinking about your intentions for tomorrow's new moon.

By evening, talkative Mercury is conjunct healing comet Chiron, so if you're socializing tonight, be extra sensitive to people's feelings and remember not to take anything too personally.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It's normal to feel sensitive, vulnerable, unproductive, or all of the above—so take care of yourself today and prioritize some gentle self-care. Aries like to work hard, that's true, but sometimes relaxation is the best medicine.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

If you're in nap mode today, give yourself permission to slow down, but use the late afternoon burst of energy to tackle any unfinished tasks from the day and get clear on what you want to manifest under tomorrow's New Moon.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Even the strongest social batteries need recharging sometimes, so keep interactions light at work or with friends today, and prioritize some solitary introspection in the evening. A little alone time can go a long way.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Say yes to happy hour drinks or an after-get off work gathering with friends, but use your unique social instincts to make sure the conversation stays light-hearted. Tonight is not the night to discuss any hot-button issues.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

If you could eliminate all self-doubt and pursue any goal you wanted, what would it be? Start visualizing the path you need to take to achieve your highest desires, because insecurities should never get in the way of your talents.

Virgo (August 23 to September 22)

If deep emotions come up today, don't run away. Standing in your truth is a powerful practice. Tonight is a good time to share your thoughts with someone you trust or to put your emotions on paper.

Libra (September 23 to October 22)

Is there anything you're afraid of committing to? A bit of indecisiveness is a sign of Libra. While you don't need to settle on anything just yet, you should examine why you're feeling hesitant about current opportunities.

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)

Your to-do list may be long, but there’s no use trying to burn the candle at both ends. Be realistic about your bandwidth today and put your well-being first.

Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)

What passion and creative projects have you put on hold? What insecurities are holding you back from pursuing them? It’s time to address the hard questions and start making plans because the world wants to see your vision.

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)

If there is drama between you and your family, or problems arise that make your home life stressful, don't ignore the stress you're feeling. Tonight is a great night to pick up the phone and talk out any hurt feelings with compassion.

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

Is there anything stopping you from saying what needs to be said? Collect your thoughts today and identify what makes you hesitant to speak your truth because those around you could benefit from your perspective.

Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

Put today's stresses into perspective and focus on some ways you can create more abundance in your daily life. Taking a long bubble bath or cooking yourself a nice dinner might be just the indulgent treat you need.
