Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, May 19th

We’re thinking globally today but ready to act locally. The Moon’s entry into conceptual Aquarius at 5:57 am EDT shifts our focus from the individual to the larger community of humanity. However, we may need to handle the frustration of an emotional setback as friendly Venus runs into an awkward aspect with stern Saturn. Thankfully, the Moon harmonizes with action-packed Mars this evening as it turns direct to end its ten-week retrograde period.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Even if you have important obligations to fulfill today, you can probably figure out how to involve your friends and make your work more fun. It’s all about relationships now as assertive Mars turns direct in your 7th House of Partnerships. You could feel like Tom Sawyer, making your chores appear so enjoyable that others want to jump in and join you in your efforts. Everyone may end up having a wonderful time, regardless of the work at hand. Ultimately, it’s the feeling of camaraderie that makes this day a memorable one.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You would like to demonstrate your intelligence today so others see you as a masterful leader. Staying two steps ahead of everyone else enables you to command just enough authority to be in charge. However, you might have a challenging time with all the responsibilities that come with the territory of being seen as the top dog. Figuring out your next move requires patience because you’re not sure about the choices you have to make. Worrying won’t make anything better, so just decide the best you can and move on.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Thinking about your future fires up your imagination while the evocative Moon travels through your 9th House of Faraway Places. However, everything grows more complicated if you have to include others in your dreams. At first, you may enjoy the idea of developing a strategy to get someone else involved, but executing a concrete plan is more challenging than it appears. You might even grow irritated because your friend isn’t interested in playing by your rules. If the frustration level escalates today, don’t be afraid to just take the high road and proceed on your own.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You have managed for a while to pull off a balancing act between your personal needs and your public responsibilities, yet now a conflict with a close friend or partner complicates things even more. You don’t care about the superficial aspects of what’s happening; you need to share on a much deeper level now. Nevertheless, it’s not easy to open up if you are afraid of being hurt. Revealing your emotions without being overly attached to the outcome is no easy task, but it can alleviate the pressure, enabling you to overcome your fear and speak from your heart.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Even if you’re very hopeful about a new relationship today, you still may experience wide mood swings as the emotional Moon activates your 7th House of Partners. There is no reason to allow your fear of abandonment to stop you from connecting with others; don’t over-personalize a situation if someone inadvertently excludes you. You are best off trusting your friends and giving them the same freedom now that you want given to you.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Although you may be feeling a bit anxious today, setting priorities and concentrating on the most practical chores should help to soothe your nerves. Unfortunately, maintaining your focus isn’t a simple task because you can see so many possibilities ahead, making you more resistant to the upcoming changes. Bring your thoughts back to the here and now, since the present moment is the only place where you can create a real impact. Don’t worry about the inevitable; your future will arrive exactly on schedule

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Looking back over the past couple of months might reveal less progress than you expected while energetic Mars retrograded in your sign. But now, as the action planet turns direct, you could be envisioning a big leap forward. Just remember that it takes time for the momentum to build, especially when coworkers are part of the picture. Ultimately, your interactions with others give you a mirror with which you can see into your own soul.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Mistrusting your feelings is your natural reaction while the emotionally detached Aquarius Moon visits your 4th House of Security today. You’re uncomfortable when your rational thoughts are all but commanding your heart what to do. And you’re particularly vulnerable if you lose touch with your feelings. Finding balance is tricky now because ignoring your passions leads you further from your truth. Nevertheless, take time to reconsider your response before doing something you may instantly regret.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your friends and associates might find it nearly impossible to accept the fact that you’re so confident now. They may think something is lurking in the mysterious twilight behind your bright and friendly smile. Luckily, they are wrong. Although profound issues can unexpectedly rise to the surface over the weeks ahead, you are quite capable of handling them on your own. Don’t worry about what others think; just be true to yourself and follow your heart.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Financial uncertainty has crept into your life and nothing you do seems to make sense of your current fiscal picture. Even a simple decision about a straightforward purchase could set you on a path that culminates in the realization that you do not have an endless supply of money. Although you might understand how to manifest abundance now, it may take a while before you have enough cash to buy what you want. Fortunately, your patience is the key to achieving the prosperity you seek.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Sometimes you don’t realize how much of an impact you have on those around you. However, it’s useful to contemplate the results of your actions before you undertake something that wastes your time and energy. No matter how good your intentions are now, you still might come on too strong. It’s counterproductive to annoy someone who normally supports you. However, you could raise suspicions if you are overly cautious. Your smartest strategy is to acknowledge your own power, but wield it only if necessary.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You are enamored with your own fantasies today as the reflective Moon drifts through your 12th House of Imagination. You might even forget when to return to reality if you get lost in your mind. Although floating off into your dreams is often a rejuvenating activity, you aren’t allowed to turn your back on your responsibilities now. Planning a temporary escape to another dimension can work as long as you cover your bases in the real world first.
