Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, May 20th

Our pent-up energy has had nowhere to go since March 1, when dynamic Mars turned retrograde. Now, relief arrives and we find our direction as Mars begins to move forward. But it’s hard to gain momentum while the Sun is still in stubborn Taurus. Thankfully, we may receive a cosmic permission slip to step into new territory once the Sun enters restless Gemini at 10:59 pm EDT, emphasizing intellectual curiosity over maintaining the status quo.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Everywhere you look today there’s so much going on, but you thrive on the adrenaline rush anyhow. You feel quite alive as the volume on your life is turned up loud and you feel quite alive. It’s a wonder that you can do everything that is expected of you now. In all your busyness, remember to stop long enough to appreciate the beauty around you. A smile in your heart is worth more than lots of words slipping off your tongue. Spread joy not stress.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You might feel panic-struck as you realize you can’t tie up all the required loose ends prior to beginning a whole new set of projects. Meanwhile, others may be depending on you to demonstrate your strength of character by following through on your commitments. Breathe deeply to calm your energy; roll up your sleeves and focus on fulfilling your previous obligations before making any new promises. A little determination and elbow grease go a long way.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You can realize your fantasies as long as you remember two things: First, even if your goals seem to be within grasp, it’s not going to be all that easy to reach them. Second, some ideas are better left unrealized, for they won’t bring satisfaction once they are materialized. Be aware that you always have multiple choices as to which dreams to chase. Choose wisely before you begin your pursuit.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You are receiving weird signals on your psychic radar, but you may not be able to decipher them today. It might seem as if they are somehow coming from your own future, yet remain just barely out of range. Don’t struggle trying to make sense of these unintelligible messages. Just show up and listen; keeping your mind open and maintaining awareness is good enough for now.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

The weeks ahead bring promises of a busier social calendar and more exciting interactions with your friends. Although this sounds like good news, you have to pay attention to all of your relationships now since they can be the source of assumptions that have crept into your life. Don’t accept things on face value, especially when it involves love. A meaningful conversation is useful to explore the possibilities before heading off in the wrong direction.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You may be harboring secret illusions about how you want to live your life. Although you could be successfully deceiving yourself, you’re probably not fooling anybody else. Take an objective look at your current lifestyle and realign your priorities with your new goals. If necessary, change some of your habits to positively impact your health and increase your vitality. Undoubtedly, you will be happier for it.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your future shines with unrealized potential as the clouds of your imagination dissipate — or so it seems. Active daydreaming lulls you into the belief that all is copasetic, even when unresolved issues are still present. Enjoyment is still possible as long as you don’t lose sight of your long-term goals and the extra effort needed to reach them. Achieving success starts with inspiration yet still requires hard work.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Circumstances might seem a bit chaotic today, but it feels good to be passionate about your life. However, there might be a voice in your head suggesting that you are missing something important. The good news is it’s not an all-or-nothing proposition. Find middle ground where you can celebrate the present moment without feeling as if you are avoiding your more mundane responsibilities.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Although you may be committed to creating a future that’s more in line with your long-term goals, you might not be ready to talk about what’s really important to you yet. For you, communication is often used as a defense mechanism where you keep the conversation — written or verbal — in emotionally safe territory. It’s not necessary to change your tactics today, but it is wise to be more aware of them so you can make better choices in the present moment.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A fairly straightforward set of circumstances may get muddled today as you uncharacteristically play the role of Pollyanna. Negativity isn’t constructive, but a dose realism will certainly help to bring clarity to the mix. You can get a better idea of what’s going on now by asking others for feedback. Listening good good advice and focusing on your options strengthens your current position.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You could be stressing about a simple misunderstanding that has created an awkward situation. Paradoxically, the more you try to make it right, the worse it becomes. Instead of fixing anything in your outer world today, the solution may be easier to find if you simply alter your own frame of reference. Everything changes when you change your mind.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You’re not one to peek ahead to the end of the book; you prefer to take the pages in order and dream about all the possible outcomes on each and every page. However, you might be frustrated now because you may see paths around you coming to an end. Nevertheless, you have an opportunity to decide what’s next in your life, rather than grieving over what is slipping away. If unexpected events precipitate change, take this as a signal from the cosmos that these shifts are long overdue.
