Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, May 17th
We want life to be simple so we can rely on the material world to reveal what we need to know. But an awkward Sun-Saturn aspect reminds us that everything isn’t limited to mechanical cause and effect. Additionally, a confusing alignment between expansive Jupiter and dispersive Neptune lures us into the depths of our imaginations. Meanwhile, the unorthodox Aquarius Moon encourages us to look into the complexity of the future rather than the past.
Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19
You might have sufficient reasons to reject someone’s offer now that your mind is on the more practical side of reality. Nevertheless, your insistence on boiling down an entire program to a simple bottom line may cause you to miss the potential in an exciting opportunity. Continue weighing the pros and cons until you know what makes the most sense. But don’t let your memories of a previous failure stop you from exploring the less obvious benefits offered by the road less taken. To reach your greatest potential you must overcome your greatest fears.
Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20
Maintaining an objective approach to your job enables you to make the best decisions today. Nevertheless, it’s still tempting to get lost in an illusion and then act as if there is no difference between reality and fantasy. There is little doubt that your attitude influences the level of your success, but you can’t treat all thoughts equally. Rather than striving harder in pursuit of your heart’s desires, choose your goals with greater care. Sportscaster Stuart Scott cautioned, “Don’t downgrade your dream just to fit your reality. Upgrade your conviction to match your destiny.”
Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20
Yesterday’s answers become today’s questions. However, your renewed sense of wonder and growing uncertainty is not about self-doubt. You’re fascinated with the mysteries of the cosmos and a new wave of curiosity gets the best of you now. Fortunately, there are gems of wisdom waiting to be discovered in the twilight of your consciousness. Surprisingly, your imagination reveals more practical options than logical analysis. Novelist Lloyd Alexander wrote, “Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it.”
Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22
You may gain inspiration from a close friend or relative today, yet your vision comes with a cost. Seeing new possibilities for your future can be an eye-opening experience, but it also increases your ambiguity. Your excitement mounts when you start thinking about the unrealized potential in your life. Nevertheless, too many choices could be overwhelming, tempting you to seal yourself off in a bubble of safety. Tony Robbins notes, “It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”
Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22
You think you have a solid handle on the current dynamics at work and that you can see how to best achieve success for you and your team. But believing that your plan is the only way to reach your goal doesn’t necessarily reflect the reality of the situation. Your rose-colored glasses alter your perceptions now, prompting you to miss some of the potential traps that are more obvious to others. Talk with your peers and listen to their feedback with impartial ears. Bruce Lee said, “Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.”
Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22
You wish you could break out of your rut and do things differently today. Nevertheless, it’s wise to have a logical reason for your unorthodox behavior, since rebellion is not the same as innovation. Playing the role of a contrarian won’t make you any more successful now, but it might alienate you from your closest allies. Peace activist Mairead Maguire wrote, “We need radical thinking, creative ideas, and imagination.” The path to meaningful change is often walked alone.
Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22
Your attraction to people may be more based on your own expectations today than with reality. You’re eager to connect with someone who shares your vision of the future, but you might be too quick in assuming you know what’s in another person’s heart. Nevertheless, exchanging dreams begins the process of getting acquainted on a deeper level. Avoid jumping to conclusions now; let each other’s stories unfold naturally. Singer Jim Morrison said, “A true friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.”
Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21
Guardian angels are watching your back now, even if you’re not convinced of their existence. You can call it luck if that fits in better with your beliefs — but however you label the divine intervention, it’s only the first step. Transforming an obstacle into a blessing requires your passionate involvement today, because it’s not something that will just automatically happen. Pay close attention to subtle events; if a door appears in a previously impenetrable wall, it’s up to you to open it and walk through. It’s as if the Universe is saying, “Don’t tell me what you want; show me what you can do.”
Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21
It’s tempting to put all your eggs in one basket, especially if that basket is just beyond your grasp. This might sound like a self-defeating plan, but it can actually work in your favor today. Instead of trying to finish anything you start, just set the intention for what you hope to accomplish. Surreal Neptune is blurring your goals, making them impossible to reach now. But you have much to gain by shifting into a metaphysical orientation. Let your dreams inspire you by stretching your vision beyond your familiar limits. Dare to step over the edge and fly.
Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19
You can soar as high as any eagle once your work is done. But your wings can’t gain altitude as long as you still have responsibilities anchoring you in the real world. Nevertheless, you may be in a position where you could focus on your long-term career goals today, rather than handling crises from one moment to the next. Instead of struggling to climb the mountaintop now, go on a reconnaissance mission to strategize for your next summit. Fellow Capricorn Baltasar Gracian said, “Readiness is the mother of luck.”
Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18
You’re being asked to leave behind the emotional safety of your everyday life and walk into an uncharted realm where everything is new and different. Your imagination has no boundaries. Anything can happen once you give yourself permission to explore your fantasies. But this metaphysical adventure isn’t just about fun and games; your mission is dead serious today. You are a scout, searching out possible places to live in your future. Whatever you find now in your dreams has the potential of becoming your home.
Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20
Hopefully, your mundane matters are in order and you’re ready for a journey to a parallel universe. Fortunately, you don’t even need to let anyone know you’re leaving today, since you can magically be in two places at once. Maintain the illusion of consistency in the real world when you blast off into the realms of unseen dimensions. Although spiritual pursuits are often physically exhausting, exploring the inner and outer cosmos is a life-altering experience. Rumi wrote, “The door is open wide; do not go back to sleep.”
