Your Horoscopes for Tuesday, May 13th

There’s a feeling of optimism in the air, even though we’re still moving through some tricky emotional territory. The intensity of the passionate Scorpio Moon can draw us into conflicts that stir up issues of control. But a sweet trine between buoyant Jupiter and healing Chiron empowers us to strike a healthy balance between being consumed by our own personal dramas and shifting our focus to supporting the goals of the larger community.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your finances are on your mind today and you may feel more driven now than ever to take positive action. However, you might not respond well to the stress that comes from having to make big decisions at this time. But don’t lose sight of your long-term goals or you could act impulsively for all the wrong reasons. Taking the time to observe the intensity of your current feelings is smarter than reacting to them out of fear. Developing your strategy before jumping in is your quickest route to success.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Relationships are fertile ground for growth these days and they can teach you a lot about yourself. But you could run into familiar obstacles to your happiness today even with the best of intentions. Be careful about being too rigid, for you might set yourself up for disappointment if you have too many expectations now. Pay attention to how your memories influence your current reactions. Remaining open to future possibilities is healthier than unconsciously replaying events from the past.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You’re tempted to set aside your chores in search of exciting experiences, but the real growth opportunities come from making a commitment now and integrating your goals into your everyday routine. However, fulfilling your obligations might require you to decline an enticing invitation. Don’t stress about what you may be missing; setting priorities and acting responsibly brings longer lasting satisfaction than a few hours of pleasant distraction.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You finally feel ready to express feelings that you have been keeping to yourself. You might be worried about how others will respond to your disclosure today, but something keeps pushing your fears away just enough so you can speak your piece. Although starting the conversation may seem awkward, don’t back down. Your words could be the catalyst for a discussion that ultimately demolishes the emotional walls and establishes the foundation for a closer relationship. Take a risk and share your heart.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Deeply-rooted fears might rise to the surface today, but don’t let your worries prevent you from having a well-deserved good time. There’s no reason to deny yourself a bit of pleasure if you have been putting in long hours and extra effort to achieve your goals. Residual negativity from a previous hurtful experience doesn’t have to hold you back any longer. If it seems like reality is giving you no for an answer, make sure it’s not really coming from you. Celebrate the little victories while you have the chance.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You may cherish your friends and family even more these days, but your dependence on them also causes you some concern. It’s not that you’re unwilling to show your vulnerability; it’s just that you might want more time alone. If so, let others know what you need as kindly as possible so they don’t feel rejected in the process. Setting healthy limits ultimately strengthens relationships as long as the wishes of everyone are heard and respected.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are no stranger to catering to other people’s demands, but you may need to be very firm about stating what you want now. You could be tested today by a self-centered acquaintance who expects more from you than you are willing to give. Don’t fall into the trap of questioning your own intentions. If you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t have much to offer anyone else. Establishing healthy boundaries is critical to your physical and emotional well-being.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It’s time to reexamine your relationships now that the evocative Moon is visiting your sign. Your emotional intensity has been known to scare some people away in the past. However, this is not a good reason to hide your feelings. It’s better to know if someone is afraid of your passionate nature before you grow more entangled. Nothing is gained if you’re downplaying your own inner strength just because it makes others uncomfortable. Surround yourself with people who love you for who you are, instead.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

There is a lot more going on in your world now than meets the eye. You may be playing for big stakes and your next moves are crucial to your success. Fortunately, you don’t have to share your inner process with everyone you meet. However, if you are captivated by someone — or by a new idea — don’t push to get closer. Give it time; your perspective might change along with your feelings over the next few days. Wait and see what happens before you act in ways you can’t undo. Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Even if your friends and coworkers are usually supportive of your behavior, they may withhold approval today for no obvious reason. Nevertheless, you’re pretty sure that you’re doing the right thing and you’re willing to wait for others to come around to your point of view. There’s no need to waste energy trying to convince anyone to join your cause. Your actions don’t have to be bold to be successful; they only need to be well-considered and effective for everyone to take notice.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Although you might run into a complicated emotional web today, it’s advisable not to get involved in any sticky business that isn’t yours. Steering clear of confusing situations and political undercurrents demonstrates that you can be conscientious and productive at the same time. Instead of wasting time on the telephone or gossiping at the water cooler, set a quiet example by taking the higher road and focusing on the work at hand.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may finally be in a position to be acknowledged for your contributions today, even if you aren’t standing on center stage. The appreciation you receive now for your previous efforts could be long overdue, but this doesn’t make it any less real. Just make sure you don’t let the accolades go to your head, or you might lose the respect that you worked so hard to gain. It’s wonderful when your talents are recognized, but it’s your kind and humble heart that makes you truly shine.
