simpler times

Horoscope - May 4 2015

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You must make a decision today as your desire to demonstrate your love conflicts with more practical pursuits. It’s as if your gesture of affection could cause negative ripples in other parts of your life. Nevertheless, you might choose to proceed as if you didn’t care what happens next. Be careful; there’s no reason to push an unstable situation past the point of no return. Your plans will only fall apart if you go overboard in your drive to experience pleasure in the moment. Observe the edge without going over it.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Everything seems more complicated than necessary today. People may tell you more than you deem appropriate and knowing too much isn’t a comfortable position for you. You might want to retreat in your mind to a simpler time, but going back to the past won’t prevent the future from arriving. The wheels are in spin and you can’t stop them even if it all feels like too much. You have the best chance to positively influence the future when you fearlessly act with good intentions. Instead of closing down your heart to protect it, keep returning to a place of love.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may be so busy today that you don’t have time to get anything done. Part of the problem is your frantic need for personal interaction. You might spend more time at the water cooler sharing your weekend adventures or on coffee break exchanging gossip with your coworkers. Consider why you’re avoiding your work before you land in trouble with your boss. There are smarter routes to expressing your independence than baiting authority by goofing off. Maintain your reputation by setting clear priorities and sticking with them. Less talk and more action is the key to your success.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might employ complex tactics to keep your emotions off everyone else’s radar screens. Unfortunately, the logic that drives this evasive strategy may be faulty to begin with. If you try to steer clear of expressing the wanderings of your heart, you could get drawn into an argument about your core values, anyway. If your insecurities start to show, your passions will rise and you’ll likely slip and say more than you intended. Believe it or not, it’s less stressful if you just speak your truth right from the start.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Being the identified optimist in your group can be a blessing because people like to bask in your enthusiasm. However, too much of a good thing may backfire today. Blind faith won’t get you to your destination any faster; it will only have you running off the road with your eyes closed. The power of positive thinking works for you as long as you apply small doses of self-restraint along the way.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You might believe that angels will swoop down to rescue you today – and maybe they will. But, unfortunately, maybe they won’t – and this isn’t a risk that’s worth taking now. Even if you have helpers in other dimensions working on your behalf, it’s still smart to go through all the motions as if you were on your own. Positive intentions and rigorous follow-through will likely be rewarded. As the Arab proverb says, “Tie up your camel first and then put your trust in God.”

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your vision of the future is wide open today; you feel as if the sky is the limit. However, you may push your luck too far and the price you might have to pay for your bad judgment isn’t worth the possible rewards. People may mean well when they encourage you to act on your dreams but be wary of anyone who says you can do anything you want now. Even if you’re more capable than you admit to yourself, acknowledging both your strengths and your weaknesses makes the difference between failure and success.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your passion for your work overcomes any reservations you may have about turning down a new project. However, just because you can talk yourself into saying yes, this doesn’t make it a good idea. Don’t be a fool and rush in so fast that you lose sight of the common sense that should be guiding your decisions at work. A tried and true tactic is to make a list of all the pros and cons of the venture. Making an informed choice is only possible after you objectively assess the opportunity from all angles.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Expressing your creativity today might require you to step so far out of the box that you can’t even remember what containment felt like. Exploring your imagination is enticing, but it’s not without its complications. Admittedly, traveling out of the realms of certainty and into the world of unrealized inspiration is a gamble. There are no definite cause-and-effect guarantees in the Land of Vision. Nevertheless, your current attraction to the potential of the unleashed mind may be irrepressible now. No one can take this journey but you.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your friends can’t see the weight of responsibility you are carrying on your shoulders now. They might expect you to be more happy-go-lucky than you actually feel. However, you have neither the time nor the energy to stop and explain yourself to every person you meet along your way today. Don’t let anyone talk you out of your current plan of action. You mean business, but your optimism is strongly at work beneath the surface, motivating you to do great things. When you reach for the stars, you have the power to change the world.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Breaking out of a rut has consequences today, but you’re willing to wager on your future. Taking a calculated risk is admirable, assuming you have actually done the logical analysis first. However, you could miss your opportunity to make a knowledgeable decision if you don’t even stop to think about the ramifications of what you say or do. Limits are not meant to hold you back now; instead, they can clarify what is important and what is not. Free your mind and the rest will follow.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You are hopeful that your compassionate nature will get you through a difficult obstacle course today. Fortunately, your inspirational objectives are a tremendous help, but they are not enough to save the day by themselves. You can see the top of the mountain, but must have a concrete plan to reach the summit or you will fall short of your mark. However, once all the pieces are in place, you still need to come through with the goods. Realizing your goals requires a methodical execution; there is no rest for the ambitious.

You know those smells that remind you of simpler times

The smell of a warm upstairs room when the air conditioning is off reminds me playing sonic heroes on the game cube in fourth grade.

Remember when the most people had to be angry about in regards to Nat was when they changed her hair? Simpler times.

tbh in 2010 “promposals” weren’t even a thing yet like one day my friend turned to me in health class and was like “hey, neither of us have prom dates, wanna go together?” and like 5 years later we’re living together

which also makes me wonder if the actual marriage proposal will be just as underwhelming like we’ll be getting groceries and he’ll grab some yogurt and be like “hey let’s get married” and i’ll be like “might as well”
