Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, May 31st




Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, May 31st



While the morning may be on the tricky side for productivity, dear Aries, it can be good for imaginative activities and simply taking a well-earned break. Watch that you’re not misunderstood, however, especially about issues from the past. Also watch that you don’t ignore/overlook an important matter, or trick yourself into thinking something you want to believe. Hold back and let your imagination take you to pleasant places. Conversations may be complicated just for now. If you’ve been ignoring your needs for rest and spiritual sustenance, you’ll feel this now. Because this is a busy time for you, and you want to stay mentally active, you might consider engaging some of your more creative ideas as you go about your business. As the day advances, more clarity comes, particularly if you’ve allowed yourself time to relax and catch your breath.


The first half of the day is not ideal for clear thinking, Taurus, especially involving money, but also with friends and emotions. Self-deception, where you might be seeing what you want to see, is a possibility now, but it’s also possible that others are evasive. Others’ unreliability may be an issue now, or you could be yearning for a more idyllic connection with someone, a group, or other special tie. While it’s important for you to focus on your practical affairs with so much emphasis on your sector of assets these days, you cannot ignore your more spiritual needs in the process, and this morning, there can be a reminder pointing you in this direction. You may very well discover a way to infuse more imagination and spirit into your business now. The day progresses with more clarity, and also a pleasing emphasis on partnership and close relationships.


With so much emphasis on your sign these days, Gemini, this period of your life is important for discovering your independence, learning about yourself and your needs, and formulating personal goals. Even so, there can be times when you feel a little empty or discontented without a solid plan or definite course of action in place. This is the influence of Neptune in your solar tenth house, which can stimulate some level of confusion about life-plan or career goals, or a lack of direction. You could experience a need to do more or to find your true calling. This may be at the root of restless feelings now. While you can’t resolve these issues in one fell swoop, you may need to take some extra time to get into better touch with your inner needs before going forward. As the day advances, you’re likely to want to busy yourself with small projects and even chores, and it’s a good time to do so.


This morning, consider that you may be tricking yourself when it comes to a belief or goal, dear Cancer. Allow yourself to dream of something better, but don’t fall into the trap of deferring your happiness to a later date when you might achieve a goal. Life doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Consider taking small steps towards achieving big goals. Take a step back and assess a matter that seems too good to be true, or, alternatively, seems too fantastical to hold weight. This is also a good time for challenging your perception of a past matter or a belief. All may not be as it seems. As the day advances, you’re likely to feel less weighed down or restless, particularly if you’ve allowed yourself time to think and rest. This can be a great time for enjoying a hobby or other form of recreation.


While there may be a disappointment about a friend or long-term goal in the first half of the day, Leo, discontent or restlessness felt now can ultimately lead you to important changes or discoveries. This is not the time to be indiscriminate with your money and your emotions. Keep abreast of what’s going on with shared resources. Trust, of course, is important in a relationship, but sometimes others can slip. There can be some confusion experienced now when it comes to your relationships, and especially regarding depth or level of attachment. This is an important period for reaching out and collaborating with others, but you can’t entirely brush off your needs for a deeper, more spiritual connection, or your need for time to yourself and sufficient rest, either. Find ways to make time for others, who are providing important nourishment for you at this time, and for yourself or your close, intimate relationships. The day advances with more clarity, but also a real need for comfort and familiarity.


This can be a “foggy” day in the relationship department, dear Virgo, although this energy tends to dissipate as the day moves forward. There may be important details that are hidden or omitted altogether, and these things can come back around at a later date. Boundaries are tricky to draw with those close to you, but if you allow others to overstep them too often, they might keep pushing your limits to see how far they can go.  If possible, postpone important conversations, get-togethers, or presentations until later. Early today, interactions can be laced with elements of guilt, deception, and insecurity. Events now can remind you of the need to pay more attention to your spiritual needs, particularly when it comes to your partnerships. A parent or authority figure may be reaching out to you or in a position to guide you. The second half of the day is likely to be busy, and pleasantly so.


Do push the limits when it comes to creativity and feeling today, dear Libra, but avoid setting yourself up for disappointment as not everyone else may be on the same page. The first half of the day can be tricky to navigate, as people may be a little evasive now. There is a congregation of planets in your adventure sector, encouraging you to get out and about in order to truly experience and live life, but they have been clashing with Neptune in your work and health sector, suggesting that disorganization or fatigue can be preventing you from doing this fully and unapologetically. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that other people are in charge of your happiness. Try to tidy up your daily affairs and get to the root of any issues of discontent. It may be that you need more spiritually fulfilling routines or work.


If you’ve been entertaining your more logical needs at the expense of your spiritual or imaginative side, dear Scorpio, then this morning’s energies can be a little disorienting, but can also point you in the right direction in order to restore some balance to your life. Rational thinking may be temporarily clouded, and wishful thinking may interfere with seeing matters clearly. You may be passionately seeking an answer to a pressing issue, but pushing matters will not get you anywhere. Watch for miscommunications in a relationship now. Take solace in peaceful activities and remain flexible. This is a time for looking within and finding ways to better satisfy your needs for imagination, creative expression, and spiritual meaning, even if this temporarily takes you away from pursuing your more worldly goals.


If you’ve been spending too much time in the world of the mind or with others at the expense of your needs for solitude, Sagittarius, you’ll feel the pull of your emotional and spiritual needs today. There could be a feeling of discontent, disappointment, or confusion initially, and it’s important to keep expectations of others and of situations at bay. Depending on others to make you happy is a gamble at best, but with so many planets in your house of relationships these days, it’s important to seek out their company. The trick is to enjoy your connections, but look within for sustenance, taking full responsibility for your actions and reactions. The Moon’s presence in your privacy sector all day gives you a further nudge towards a focus on emotional replenishment and renewal.


This is a time for being open to possibilities, but it’s also important to wait things out a little longer, dear Capricorn, if you are launching something important. Big ideas are likely to require a closer look, and today’s energies are rather fuzzy. If you’ve been pushing yourself too hard or forgetting to feed your more spiritual needs, today you’re bound to feel a little drained. Your mind is likely to drift, and it can be hard to stay on course. You are not a person who is especially comfortable with difficult Neptune influences, such as we are experiencing today, as the associated lack of clarity and direction can be especially distracting and frustrating to you. However, if you resolve to let go of a need for control and definition, you’ll feel a whole lot better. If you are able to, give yourself a break from heavy thinking and doing.


You can be feeling especially sensitive in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius, with yet another Neptune square clouding perceptions and encouraging a look within for answers. Wishful thinking can be at play now, and while it’s important to entertain possibilities and fantasy, it’s also important to know in what areas of life to stay grounded. Focusing on the tasks at hand may not be your forte now, but you can feel motivated if something touches upon your higher ideals or inner dreams, so if possible, tend to your more imaginative and creative activities. Watch for a tendency to look the other way if faced with money problems, or to borrow from the future in order to satisfy a temporary desire. As the day advances, the mental or emotional fog tends to lift. The Scorpio Moon tends to bring out your need to perform and achieve.


There can be some restlessness in the first part of the day, dear Pisces, with your ruler, Neptune, in hard aspect with both the Sun and Venus. You’ll have to dig deep in order to find out the source of dissatisfaction, as many of the reasons we give ourselves for being restless or unhappy are superficial and temporary. You could be feeling temporarily unmotivated or ineffective when it comes to handling family, domestic life, or day to day affairs. Now is the time to seek out a balance. Look for areas of your life that have become immoderate or excessive, and seek out doable and relatively simple ways to satisfy some of your inner longings. Remind yourself that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Big dreams are fine, but watch that you’re not so focused on them that you are putting off being happy in the present. The day’s confusing energies tend to dissipate as it advances. The Moon is in your adventure sector all day, encouraging movement and learning.

Staying on Track

by Madisyn Taylor

In a world where we have routines to get everything done, we rarely have a routine for our spiritual self.

In a world where we have routines for nearly everything—our route to work, our physical fitness regimen, and our weekday schedule—it’s amazing how many people forget to create a routine for meeting their spiritual needs. We run around in an attempt to be at our many appointments on time and meet our many obligations. In our efforts to be as productive as possible, however, our spiritual needs tend to take a backseat. After all, taking care of our spiritual needs doesn’t directly pay the bills or tone our abdominal muscles. We may even wonder who has time to meditate or write in their journal when there are more pressing matters to see to. The truth is that nurturing ourselves spiritually is what gives us the energy and grounding that we need to make sure that our lives stay on track.

How you choose to nurture yourself spiritually is a personal choice. For some people, meditating once a day may be what they need to stay centered. While spending 10-20 minutes with your eyes closed and your brain devoid of thought may seem like a lot of time doing nothing, this state of nothingness actually allows you to stay calm and focused so you can be as productive as possible. Writing in your journal everyday lets you stay in touch with yourself so that you are always tuned in to your feelings. Repeating affirmations for success, happiness, and well-being on a regular basis can help you live with optimism and enthusiasm and create what you want in life.

Having a routine for nurturing your spirit that you do each day lets you feed energy to your soul and can serve you well if your life suddenly takes an unexpected turn into a difficult period. This kind of routine grounds your spirit in your body so that you stay anchored in yourself as you move through each day. Nurturing yourself spiritually allows you to not only stay on track in your life, but it allows for your life to stay on track with what your spirit wants.

Taking time for yourself

by Madisyn Taylor

Making time for the activities that contribute to your spiritual growth has little to do with being selfish.

Modern life compels us to rush. Because we feel pressured to make the most of our time each day, the activities that sustain us, rejuvenate us, and help us evolve are often the first to be sacrificed when we are in a hurry or faced with a new obligation. It is importa

nt we remember that there is more to life than achieving success, making money, and even caring for others. Your spiritual needs should occupy an important spot on your list of priorities. Each task you undertake and each relationship you nurture draws from the wellspring of your spiritual vitality. Taking the time to engage in spiritually fulfilling activities replenishes that well and readies you to face another day. Making time for the activities that contribute to your spiritual growth has little to do with being selfish and everything to do with your well-being. Regularly taking the time to focus on your soul’s needs ensures that you are able to nurture yourself, spend time with your thoughts, experience tranquility, and expand your spiritual boundaries.

It is easy to avoid using our free moments for spiritual enrichment. There is always something seemingly more pressing that needs to be done. Many people feel guilty when they use their free time to engage in pursuits where they are focusing on themselves because they feel as if they are neglecting their family or their work. To make time for yourself, it may be necessary to say no to people’s requests or refuse to take on extra responsibilities. Scheduling fifteen or thirty minutes of time each day for your spiritual needs can make you feel tranquil, give you more energy and allows you to feel more in touch with the universe. Writing in a journal, meditating, studying the words of wise women and men, and engaging in other spiritual practices can help you make the most of this time.

Making time to nurture your spirit may require that you sacrifice other, less vital activities. The more time you commit to soul-nurturing activities, the happier and more relaxed you will become. The time you devote to enriching your spirit will rejuvenate you and help you create a more restful life.
