Your Horoscopes for Saturday, May 16th
Our dreams are entangled with reality today as romantic Venus conspires with illusory Neptune. Our fantasies can be so sweet that we grow infatuated with our visions of the ideal love. This easy trine between sensual Venus and mystical Neptune adds a spiritual dimension to our personal desires. The reflective Moon enters earthy Taurus at 3:02 am EDT, enriching our attractions to the metaphysical realms without any interference from the mundane world.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You have a romantic plan in mind that includes someone you love, but he or she might not be all that cooperative when it comes to manifesting your dream. Although you’re tempted to use the art of persuasion, there’s no need to push your agenda today. The first step is to observe your changing emotions without feeling like you must act on every whim. Nevertheless, just because others aren’t willing to join you now, you still have a good chance of finding satisfaction on your own if you choose your goals with great care.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You are likely to learn a lesson in compassion today as gentle Venus harmonizes with ethereal Neptune. However, this kind of dreamy idealism doesn’t come naturally for you Bulls since you prefer to play it safe in the real world. Stretching outside of your comfort zone is well worth the effort now. Widening your perspective and opening your heart won’t place you in any real danger while the practical Taurus Moon is here to keep you grounded. Helping others is a powerful spiritual practice.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Someone you admire may become your close friend, but first you must be willing to engage him or her in a way that moves beyond the superficial. Others won’t likely accept your charm as a substitute for a real heartfelt connection today, so don’t let your nonchalant attitude distract you from sharing your hopes and dreams. Instead of laughing the moment off, enjoy the beauty of the emotional support that is available to you by embracing the unknown.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Life seems so lovely when you get to sit back and soak in the admiration of others today. Nevertheless, you must also speak up if you expect someone to know what you really want. You might be longing to express your desires but you need to be more comfortable before you reveal anything too deep. If you’re feeling emotionally insecure now, you could clam up and slip away before anyone notices your retreat. Your current challenge is to stay one hundred percent present even when you feel vulnerable. Make the most of the cosmic spotlight and tell others what’s in your heart.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You may be swept off your feet today and could even fall in love at first sight. However, the entire romance might occur only within your imagination. You’re hesitant to share your feelings with anyone else now because you can’t see anything positive coming from revealing your fantasies. Give yourself permission to explore your desires now, whether or not you express any of them out loud. Listening to your heart is a good place to start, but only time will tell if a relationship is meant to last.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You can’t maintain your typical rational perspective today because you’re too busy daydreaming about a perfect romance. And to make matters worse, you are struggling to put your desires into words. Unfortunately, interactions with others seem too shallow now to allow you to express the depth of your feelings. Nevertheless, don’t give up before you even try. Convey your message by whatever means possible; the right person will understand your point perfectly and you will feel better just for being heard.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
It’s a good omen when your friends encourage you to do the very same things you’ve been talking about doing for a long time. Fortunately, you have a lovely opportunity to extend the influence of your magic today in lots of unexpected ways. You could be running on a creative high now, especially if others appreciate your artistic talent and aesthetic eye. Do whatever is necessary to motivate yourself into action while the cosmic momentum is pulling for you. Take center stage and shine like a star.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your basic nature normally prevents you from evading intensity and sidestepping unpleasant issues; however, you’re tempted to keep everything light and easy today. You see great potential everywhere you look, and you don’t want to mess with your current positive trajectory. Remember, your suppressed feelings can be expressed in a gentle manner that’s constructive instead of destructive. Your timing and the tone of your voice make all the difference in the world now when it comes to discussing a difficult topic.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You’re walking on the sunny side of the street today and everything seems to sparkle with magic. However, it’s all too easy to get lost in a fantasy now, especially if it offers you some of the emotional security you seek. As much as you want to be loved, your need for adventure may stir up uncertainties about your current relationship situation. The more you ignore your concerns, the more intense they become. Paradoxically, staying in touch with your discomfort actually improves your day on several levels. Being authentic is more rewarding than being perfect.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You don’t like the idea of letting down your guard today, even if you secretly would like to try. You are drawn to explore a potentially positive experience, but you feel safer when you play within the formal rules of engagement. Unfortunately, your current dilemma won’t be solved by flipping a coin and making a simple all-or-nothing choice now. Carefully observe when you clench your jaw, contract your muscles or hold your breath. Consciously engage your heart, instead of unconsciously closing it down.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You want to surround yourself with the finer things in life today, but it’s tough to find the time to pursue pleasure when you still have so many chores to do. Thankfully, you have sufficient energy to do your work; however, your unexpressed desires still could get in the way. Unfortunately, the more you try to concentrate, the more insistent your fantasies become. Stop resisting this call from your imagination and focus on ways to make your dreams come true, instead.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You might consider pursuing a romantic relationship now, in reality or within your fantasies. Or, you may be passionate about your current involvement in a creative endeavor while enchanting Neptune trines artistic Venus. Don’t worry about what others think because they are busy trying to navigate their way through the planetary haze. You, on the other hand, can see things as you wish them to be, rather than how they are today. Your limitless imagination is a gift as long as you are aware that you’re wearing rose-colored glasses. Dreams are wishes that your heart makes, but it is up to you to choose which one to chase.
