Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 10

Posted: Updated:

Polls have come to dominate the media's horse race coverage of political campaigns. Pundits and reporters constantly use them to tell us who's hot and who's not -- but skip over the fact that plummeting response rates and variables like undecided voters and margins of error and often render these polls useless as anything other than lightweight diversions on par with horoscopes and political betting lines. Our HuffPollstrology chart helps keep you up to date on the latest poll results, along with the latest horoscope predictions, and the latest online political betting lines - and will hopefully help the polling junkies in the media keep polls in the proper perspective.

News concerning finance could reach you. It may be that something that was a speculative investment is starting to pay off. Even so, you might be unclear as to the exact gain involved. This could cause you to look closely at bank statements about the financial papers. Just as important could be communications from four different people, each of whom has important news. Their different reactions might offer something of a soap opera - but give you valuable information for a meeting tomorrow.

True, you could overspend. However, you could just enjoy window-shopping or strolling through marketplace or bazaar. You could also initiate contact with a large network. Your distributing abilities could be put to the test. If packing, you could get into a real muddle. The resolution of a financial conundrum could be urgent before Monday. Setting aside time to talk to someone who's good at budgeting might be wise - though this could interfere with your social life!

Now that you've identified what needs to be done, your job today may be to delegate. Finding the right people might not be easy, however. Four people may be needed. Someone born under your own design would undoubtedly offer excellent support - as you could do for them. However, you might also need a Capricorn, a Sagittarius and one other to tie up loose ends. All this could leave you well-placed for tomorrow's activities.

Act on your instincts today, dear Leo, and you will not go wrong. You may need to give up a bit of control and put logical thinking aside for the day. Let the wind take you where it wants you to go. Explore your mind and its interaction with others. You will find that it will be just about impossible to solidify any plans. You are better off exploring options and comparing notes with others. Don't pigeonhole yourself into only one way of thinking.

You will find today that you are the missing puzzle piece that people need in every situation, dear Virgo. Engage in light conversation in social arenas and feel free to turn your charm dial up to turbo. You have the ability to make favorable impressions on just about everyone today, so make sure you set the day off on the right foot. Get out of bed earlier than normal and get your blood pumping with a brisk walk around the neighborhood.

You should be able to evaluate your emotions from a very neutral and detached perspective today, dear Scorpio. Use this opportunity to take action based on what you feel. Make sure that your actions aren't reactionary and that you are not simply acting rash in response to someone else's hasty maneuvers. Think before you make any sudden moves. You will be amazed at what incredible things can develop if you simply use your head a bit first.
