Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, May 17th
You are more likely to be the one who takes charge in the coming days amid a flurry of activity and strong emotions, Aries, as you seem to be the grounded one right now. With a New Moon occurring in your second house tonight (or technically, fifteen minutes into tomorrow), you receive wonderful energy for improving your finances and tending to your personal possessions over the coming days and weeks. The impulse to buy something can be sudden and should probably be tamed just for now, until you get a plan in place. Ideas, and especially money-making ones, come to you with force and passion. Receive and enjoy these ideas, and then sort them out patiently as you go along. This can be the start of something very special! Avoid all-new endeavors today, before the New Moon, as it’s better to finish or end things with the waning Moon.
With a New Moon occurring in your sign tonight (technically, fifteen minutes into tomorrow), it’s the time for personal new beginnings, Taurus. What you’d like to change, improve, or initiate is in your hands. You’re suddenly more noticeable and “out there”, and it’s a good time to ride this energy well. It’s also a time for personal re-invention. You are always in charge of your destiny, but times like now, you feel it more. Confidence comes across well; excessive preoccupation with yourself doesn’t! People believe in you, and this only serves to motivate you further to present the best version of yourself. Today, it’s important to seek self-understanding. Do what you can to reflect and muse about what you want for yourself. Avoid new beginnings until after the New Moon. Concentrate on ridding yourself of attitudes that have been holding you back from personal success.
Just after the end of the day, a New Moon will occur in your soul sector, Gemini, launching a cycle in which you are more inclined to take charge of personal and private matters that need your attention, and to give more time to a person in need or an important cause. Buried or neglected issues can demand your attention over the coming days, but for many of you, you may need to take on a supportive role in which you sacrifice some of your personal plans and goals, at least temporarily, in order to take care or help out other people. You might take the lead on such a matter, or if you are the one who needs extra rest, then you’ll push for that. You may be serving, helping, supporting, and giving of yourself now, or it could be a time of retreat or withdrawal on some level as you work behind the scenes. If you’ve been neglecting your psychic, spiritual, and emotional needs, then this is a time that forces you to acknowledge and tend to them. Today, it’s better to concentrate on finishing things up rather than beginning anew.
Pay special attention to who you meet and ideas that come to you in the coming days, dear Cancer. The New Moon that occurs tonight energizes your sector of friendships, networking, community involvement, new ideas, technology, and aspirations. What’s happening around the time of this lunation helps pave the way for personal changes and new beginnings. There can be new friends or associations with groups and people who share some similar interests or a common goal, or new beginnings with existing connections. If existing friendships are in need of a new focus or a renewed bond, then the energy of this New Moon can help. A New Moon is about taking the lead and taking charge. Open yourself to the need for people in your life who offer you new perspectives, a change of pace, and some exciting variety to your daily life. Today, before the New Moon, think and process rather than push yourself ahead with all-new endeavors.
If it’s your desire to move up a notch in your professional life, Leo, the New Moon occurring shortly after the end of today can give you a boost. Even if you’re happy in your position as it stands, there are always some tweaks that can be made to improve your professional and public life, and these can be most successful in the coming days and weeks. New projects and goals, and possibly even a new area of focus on the job, may emerge. Enter these with healthy confidence, not over-confidence. Take the time to plan, and act rather than react. You have more impact on others than usual, so use this time in the spotlight well. Today, before the New Moon, it’s better to think about what needs to end or attitudes that should be left behind rather than beginning all-new endeavors.
Your spirit to explore, grow, and expand beyond the ordinary experiences in your life is powerful in the coming days, Virgo, with a New Moon about to occur in your adventure and learning sector. While this can certainly lead to a feeling of restlessness if left alone, you have a distinct opportunity to do something about it by beginning new activities or projects that feed your thirst for out of the ordinary experiences. This is a time of increased bravery and spontaneity, as well as a period for gaining new knowledge or fleshing out your knowledge of particular subjects. For today, it’s better to close up projects and tie up loose ends. If you can manage it, it would be even better to reflect on recent events, considering what attitudes or situations may need to be left behind in order to best move forward.
When a New Moon occurs, it’s a time for turning over a new leaf, Libra, and the one approaching now energizes your sector of intimacy and sharing. In the coming days, there can be a feeling of revitalization on a deep, inner level. This can be experienced in your relationship with yourself and/or in a partnership. Inhibitions can drop and there is more acceptance of the darker side of your personality. Alternatively, you might have had enough of a bad habit, addiction, or superstition, and you are suddenly motivated to end it. It’s a time for getting rid of burdens, or sharing their weight. You might decide to rid yourself of clutter or debt. You may be saying goodbye to a bad attitude or habit, or getting closer to someone who makes you feel better about yourself. The New Moon occurs 15 minutes into tomorrow, so today, think, process, feel, and reflect. Wait for new launches.
Tonight’s New Moon (technically occurring 15 minutes into tomorrow) brings a charge of energy for starting a new partnership or committing to a new way of enhancing a current relationship, Scorpio. Remember, however, that emotions are heightened today and tomorrow with the energy of the lunation, and inclinations are excessive. Acting impulsively today is not advised, but anything that is revealed in the heat of the moment should be given full attention in the next few days. New information could arrive now that affects your closest of relationships. Take in now, and take action when it feels right. Consider ways to improve, enhance, and enjoy current relationships. Listen to your heart if it’s saying you don’t want a partnership right now. For those of you looking for a committed relationship, keep yourself open to possibilities now. Today, we are symbolically in the dark, so hold off on new beginnings and concentrate on endings or letting go of things you no longer need.
You can be tempted and motivated to totally rework your daily routines now with a New Moon occurring at the very end of the day in your solar sixth house, Sagittarius. A new health program or fitness routine could be implemented in the coming days, or you could be doing a top to bottom reorganization of your workspace or home. Whatever gets you more organized and feeling in charge of your daily life is favored now. A new project, work task, or even line of work can be on the table now. Be sure to pace yourself – all of this doesn’t have to happen all at once. The coming week is very strong for getting yourself organized and on track, but you need to watch that you don’t burn out by attempting too much or by setting over-the-top goals for yourself. Take advantage of the added power you have now, but take it easy, too, particularly today before the New Moon when it’s time to let go and reflect rather than push ahead.
Just after the end of the day, you will be receiving a nice boost of new energy for romance, children, creativity, and entertainment, Capricorn. A New Moon occurs 15 minutes into tomorrow, beginning a period for taking charge of these areas of your life – for making improvements to your life that help restore balance. You are in need of quality leisure time and channels for expressing yourself creatively. Ideas for enjoying life’s more playful moments can come to you in a rush, or opportunities can suddenly appear, ready to grab. Even if your life seems crammed with things to do, you need to learn to make the most of the time you do have for enjoying yourself. However, it’s really important that you avoid going over budget in the process. Pace yourself, as balance and moderation are key, but do take advantage of the boost of confidence you receive in the coming days. Today, take the time to reflect and finish up projects that may interfere with your New Moon goals.
Fifteen minutes into tomorrow, a New Moon will occur that offers you a burst of take-charge energy for home and family matters, dear Aquarius. The coming days will be important for making improvements, honoring your personal commitments, and tackling projects or enjoying activities around the home and with family. Family can include people who are “like” family to you. Today is important for considering those things, including attitudes, that are no longer serving you well, and putting them behind you. You might consider putting projects to rest or aside if they can wait and if they will interfere with getting the important rest and regeneration you need in the coming days and possibly weeks. Reconnecting with your need for familiarity, comfort, and security is important now. Wait until after the New Moon to begin all-new projects.
With a New Moon occurring in your solar third house fifteen minutes after today ends, dear Pisces, new energy is with you for connecting, communicating, and learning. Ideas can fill your head, but so can too much information, so watch for overdoing things now. Some of your ideas will take and others may not, but don’t worry about the difference between the two just yet – there’s no rush. Plan to make warm and interesting new connections with people, be open to the idea that you need more intellectual stimulation in your life, and look for ways you can improve your approachability. However, watch for taking on so many things that you feel overwhelmed. The Moon is Balsamic all day today, suggesting that it’s a good time for reflection rather than taking action on new things. It’s an ideal time to bring something to completion or to end a bad habit, however.
