However, the transit will release more critical energies, so try not to allow negativity to overwhelm you today. Express.co.uk reveals your horoscope, star sign reading, astrology and zodiac forecast for May 10.
Amongst battling potential critical energies, we’re also blessed, less fortunately, with Mercury turning retrograde.
When Mercury is in retrograde, it appears to go backwards in its orbit, with energies known to significantly impact communication and technology while it takes place.
Mercury’s retrograde is due to last until June 3, starting in the sign of Gemini and ending in Taurus. Prepare for thinking to turn inward as you might feel more inclined to review and reassess during this period.

“Minor breaks in the mechanical aspects of communication and transportation can reconnect us to other, possibly more meaningful, means of connecting.”
The times due to be more difficult will stir on the days of the shifts themselves, so today and June 3. In the days in between, we tend to grow more accustomed to the motion, which allows us to deal with it better.

The Jupiter-Aries transit will encourage you to make your own opportunities, and you’re more likely to thrive when taking the lead.
You might also more naturally feel an urge to initiate, inspire others, and demonstrate more enthusiasm.
Cafe Astrology said: “Prosperous areas are ones that allow us to head, lead, and innovate.
“Faith is strong in our ability to reinvent our lives and confidently move forward.”
This newfound confidence can bring about favourable circumstances, so make sure to use this time to focus on and make efforts to actualise your personal goals.
Cafe Astrology said during this time, we likely “believe that “life is what you make it,” and “we enjoy competition as it pushes us to do better.”
They add: “Our belief in ourselves brings a spirit of the pioneer.”
However, take care not to take any of these things too far, as a bolshie prioritisation of yourself in certain scenarios can be insensitive and uncompromising, and can be mistaken for arrogance, which could lead to missed opportunities.
Try to make extra effort to balance self-confidence with empathy and a more measured approach to excel during this period.
