Your Daily Horoscopes for May 23rd

Today’s creative Venus-Mars conjunction in pragmatic Taurus enables us to concentrate on the power of now. Although the connection between artful Venus and assertive Mars can be playful, we may become obsessed with what we are doing in the moment. Fortunately, the Aquarius Moon reflects our need to be a part of the larger community. However, communicator Mercury’s uneasy aspect to taskmaster Saturn warns us not to be too rigid in our thinking.

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may think you know what’s happening today, but you could still miss the boat. Fortunately, your friends might be able to help you see the truth. It’s not that they know more than you; it’s just that they want what’s best for you and will tell you what they honestly think. Holding on to your current plans might seem like the smartest thing to do, but remember that you may have made up your mind even before you had all the facts.



Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You might still feel a bit spacey today if you’re unable to shake off yesterday’s mood. Although this confusion can be challenging if you have a decision to make, you probably know exactly what you want. The problem is that you don’t know the shortest route to your destination. You aren’t happy if you can’t read the signals, but get over your discomfort; your path will become clear if you stay focused on your goal.



Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

It’s difficult to make any sense out of the data you have today because logical Mercury remains frustrated by stern Saturn’s demands for more facts. No matter how objective you think you are now, your analysis is still colored by your opinion. You may be very careful with your words, but you still come up short delivering your message. Don’t give up; keep searching for the missing pieces of the puzzle. They will eventually fall into place, but not without patience and extra effort on your part.



Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

The conceptual Aquarius Moon may leave you feeling a bit detached from your emotions. You might be nostalgic, even if your past wasn’t actually as sweet as you now remember it. If you’re struggling for a simple route home and need some reference points, it’s perfectly natural to look back. Just keep in mind that these recollections are biased, so don’t make any serious decisions based upon them. Wait until you fully return to the present prior to giving your final answer.


Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Although you might have a project in mind, a friend or an associate could open your eyes to a new alternative today. Proceed with caution because the opportunity may not be as good as it seems and you might not be considering all the facts. You can analyze what can go wrong without dwelling on the negative. There’s no reason to be overly pessimistic; just add a healthy dose of reality to any plans you make at this time.


Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You could underestimate the amount of time it should take to do a particular job today. However, your ability to single-mindedly focus on your goal enables you to compensate for any errors in judgment. Unfortunately, you still may not complete everything you promised, but your honest explanation should be enough for others to understand. Tell the truth, but don’t turn it into an excuse. Continue working hard and others will soon recognize the quality of your work.



Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re ready for the workweek because you believe that collaborating with others will be fun and productive. But looking ahead too far can distract you from something that’s right in front of your nose today. Remember, you must take a proactive role in achieving your goals, even if you have to make adjustments to your plan along the way. Don’t worry about someone who thinks you should wait; if your intuition says do it now, then go ahead and listen.


Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

If you think that you’re not being appreciated now, you may go out of your way to let others know exactly how you feel about the situation. Although expressing yourself is a wise move, it can also complicate your life. You aren’t likely to retreat from complexity, especially if it’s directly in the path of your truth. Fortunately, the Venus-Mars conjunction in your 7th House of Relationships indicates that your willingness to take a risk in the name of integrity today should pay off.



Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You can visualize your ideal situation in your mind’s eye and may be certain that this is exactly how things will unfold. But your friends and associates aren’t as sure of your current optimism, which appears unwarranted to them. Nevertheless, you cannot see anything wrong with your line of thought. Fortunately, you might not be as far off base as others think, but accepting a reality check from someone you trust is rarely a bad move.



Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are quite concerned with doing the right thing now because you have your heart set on an objective and don’t want to waste any time. Although your intentions are serious, you cannot completely suppress your inner child that wants to come out and play today. It’s wonderful if you can carve out some space to have fun; just don’t get greedy and take too much. Find satisfaction in the little things and then return to your larger ambitions.


Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your life might get a little strange today and your emotional reactions could surprise you. You are usually somewhat moodier when the Moon is back in your own sign, but unexpected twists and turns are even more prevalent now that the Sun is moving toward a sextile with erratic Uranus. There’s nothing you must do but remain flexible; whatever happens is probably synchronized with mysterious forces that may forge a new direction in your life.



Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

The Moon’s visit to your 12th House of Spiritual Mystery may bring you assistance from unseen quarters today. You seem to intuitively know which way to go and pieces just effortlessly fall into place. But trusting a spirit guide, a guardian angel or the luck of the draw won’t be enough. You must also pay attention to the facts and balance your instincts with your perceptions of the real world. Nevertheless, don’t say no to an opportunity just because you’re afraid of the unknown.
