Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, May 18th

Our attraction to beauty can lead to trouble today, especially if we don’t establish boundaries. Sensual Venus dynamically squares Jupiter, the planet of bigger, better and more. Usually, squares are a source of tension, but this one pits two indulgent planets against each other, magnifying our desires. Meanwhile, the ambitious Capricorn Moon encourages us to get ahead. Still, an annoying Mercury-Saturn connection keeps our feet on the ground.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You can talk a good relationship game today as your feelings are pulled into realms that are illuminated by your words. Your fantasy life is rich now, which in turn fuels the fires of romance. It all comes back to one question: how do you feel about yourself? This is not about the bravado that you display for others. It is about who you really are and what your heart needs. Instead of pretending that all is well, take a risk and be your authentic self.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

There are two distinct voices in your head today. One is enticing you to enter the dance of relationships. This voice encourages you to move out beyond your own bubble and emotionally connect with someone else. Meanwhile, there’s another voice telling you not to make any sudden moves and stay within your own internal fantasy world where it is safe, but lonely. Listen to both points of view for the best possible outcome.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You are alive and buzzing on the mental plane of existence, but the real growth for you now is in the deeper emotional realms where you are being drawn. Perhaps your current exploration is motivated by a romantic attraction or a curious fascination. However, this is about a pleasure that is deeper than clever words can convey. Take a more creative approach to expressing your feelings today; sometimes you must stop talking in order to say what you really mean.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

If you are in a position where you can spend time developing your creative skills, then this might be a most fruitful time for you. It’s not that you are irresponsible; just because you are fond of daydreaming doesn’t mean you are intentionally trying to avoid your commitments. However, the right words still arouse your desire to escape. Nevertheless, it’s better to capture a bit of the magic rather than letting it capture you.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You’re more serious about finding meaning from your relationships with friends and associates today. You could even be drawn into social activities that aren’t normally your cup of tea, but it might be in response to someone close to you who is giving you mixed signals. Perhaps the messages are not as contradictory as you think they are. In fact, it may be the receiver that needs tuning and not the transmitter. Look beneath the uncertainty to figure out what you truly want.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your word for the day is nuance, but it could get lost in the outer noise. Keep in mind that it’s less important what you say now than how you say it. There’s a vast difference in the various shadings of gray, and it may be the very subtle perceptions that have the biggest impact. Don’t be afraid to spend the necessary time to be certain that you have a realistic perspective on things. Otherwise, you might make a mountain out of a molehill for no reason at all.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

There’s no need to go out of your way to make your situation look more attractive than it is today, even if that’s your natural tendency. You can fall in love with the idea of love, instead of what or who is actually in front of you. The most significant problem you now face is emotional inflation, inspiring you and others to over-commit or over-spend. There’s nothing wrong with an occasional bit of extravagance as long as you don’t take it too far.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Just because you have strong desires and a big appetite now doesn’t mean that you must pursue everything that catches your eye. It is okay to just let yourself feel; it’s even okay to wander around inside your own fantasies for a while. No one has to know what you are conjuring up within the privacy of your own imagination. Your mind is hyperactive today and the emotions attached to your daydreams might feel overwhelming. Sharing only on a need-to-know basis prevents you from having to justify your attractions to anyone else.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

If you can keep your ego in check and your needs in line, you could be in for a most incredible day as your key planet, Jupiter, is stressed by sweet Venus. Fortunately, this may feel like a good kind of stress because having more of a pleasurable experience is a good thing in your book. Of course, the potential dangers include over-estimating and over-indulging. William Blake wrote: “The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.” Enjoyment is the key word now, but knowing when to stop still makes sense.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Today can be a bit unnerving as all attempts to keep your feet firmly on the ground are defeated by the sometimes magical and oftentimes confusing temptations of the day. You might struggle to find a middle path in the chaos. But if you are too somber and attempt to plant yourself too deeply into the practical realms, you could miss the magic. On the other hand, if you forget that you are an earth-bound Capricorn goat, you just may go drifting off into space. Dancing on the edge between reality and fantasy gives you the best of both worlds.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Boundary issues can create complications as others convince you to become involved in circumstances that don’t really belong to you. But you’re fascinated by all the amazing opportunities and could momentarily forget about what you previously learned. Your curious nature and sense of wonder make it easier for you to let down your guard. Vulnerability is not necessarily a bad thing, but now it is more of a distraction when you just want to have some fun.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Sometimes the waters appear so crystal clear that you intuitive Fish actually believe that you can see forever and a day. However, the truth is that even the clearest of waters create visual distortion. Normally, you take this simple fact into consideration, but now it is tempting to forget that things are not as they seem. Step back and remind yourself to get a reality check before you find yourself in too deep. Trust your psychic radar but take your paddles just in case.
