Your Horoscopes for Friday, May 17th

Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You are full of clever, resourceful ideas today, which is why you will see new uses or applications for something that you already own. Likewise, you might see new ways to make money on the side. You might even find a better paying job!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Take a realistic look in the mirror today and ask yourself what you can do to improve the image you create on your world. After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression! Your discussions with others will be powerful and to the point. (Oh yeah.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your ability to search for answers and solutions is fantastic today. You’ll be like a dog with a bone. Not only is your mind focused, you have the motivation and endurance to keep working until you find what you’re looking for. If you discover secrets – be discreet.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might attract someone today to you who is really powerful. (“Hi Darth.”) Do not be intimidated because there is also a likelihood that you are the powerful person in someone else’s eyes. Either way, your conversations will bring about changes for the better.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your interaction with a boss or a parent will be powerful and to the point today. In fact, one of you might be blown away. On the other hand, everyone is prepared to deal with big issues in order to get a better result. This could mean you have to start all over again.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Steer clear of people who are on a soapbox and proselytizing their personal views on politics, religion or racial issues because they will be too much. Run the other direction. Meanwhile, don’t coerce others to agree with you on these issues, either.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You couldn’t pick a better day to plow through details related to banking, shared property, taxes, debt, wills, inheritances and insurance matters. You will make great headway because you have the motivation, perseverance and pluck to find what you’re looking for. Good luck!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Stay calm when talking to partners and close friends because conversations with others today will not be casual. They will be serious, to the point and perhaps revealing. Some people might be pushy. (Not you, of course.) That was a joke.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This will be a productive day at work because you have penetrating insight and a deep desire to introduce reforms and make improvements to whatever you do. You might be aggressive because you see how things can be better. Be skilful to get the cooperation of others.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If you’re involved in sports and competition, today might be a bit fierce because people are aggressive! They will mean what they say and say what they mean. They will also be physically in your face. Take it easy. Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is the classic day to tackle repairs at home. Quite likely, you will entertain projects that need to be stripped down or torn away to get down to the bare bones of things before you can rebuild, or refinish or recover or restore. You get the idea.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today your mind is so powerful and focused, you can do anything! You can study anything, you teach, you can sell, you can persuade and you can act! Remember that you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

If Your Birthday Is Today

TV host Craig Ferguson (1962) shares your birthday today. You have a sharp mind and a strong self discipline. You also have business savvy. This is a year of teaching and learning. You might learn something profound that sets you in a new direction that is crucial for your success next year. Start to explore meditation, yoga or any discipline that will help you to get a better understanding of who you are.
