FOR TO­DAY, MAY 11, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19):

The stakes are high, and the de­mands are sub­stan­tial. You thrive in in­tense en­vi­ron­ments that awaken all your senses. Any­thing that seems to block you pro­fes­sion­ally only stim­u­lates your in­ge­nu­ity and so­lid­i­fies your drive to suc­ceed. Sur­prise people by dis­cov­er­ing a clever way around the ob­struc­tion. Take con­crete steps to fur­ther your ob­jec­tives to­day. Your re­siliency in­spires oth­ers to reach for their dreams, too. The strug­gle is part of the story. Vic­tory lies within your grasp.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20):

Dis­tant shores beckon you to­day. How­ever, it is dif­fi­cult to stay grounded in the present when you are lost in thoughts of the far­away hori­zon and the fu­ture. As you plumb the depths of your mind, you re­mem­ber an ex­pe­ri­ence that brings your reverie to a halt and forces you to be­come aware of the here and now. Use this re­turn­ing awareness to turn your flights of fancy into ac­tual flights. As a wise per­son once said, We travel not to es­cape life, but for life not to es­cape us.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

Your de­sire to dis­cover what lies at the root of an is­sue keeps you pre­oc­cu­pied to­day. Your sin­gu­lar fo­cus may cause your friends to grow an­noyed with you. The truth is there are only so many free hours dur­ing the day, and you must spend them wisely. Your in­ves­ti­ga­tion takes prece­dence now. Thank­fully, your part­ner or best friend could step in to smooth out the tense so­cial sit­u­a­tion with ease and grace. Keep dig­ging for a golden re­sult and you will get to the bot­tom of some­thing im­por­tant. Cher­ish the trea­sure you find.

CANCER (June 21-July 22):

In­ti­macy is built on hon­esty and trust. Ev­ery so of­ten, its wise to dis­pel dif­fer­ences and the cur­rent cos­mic en­ergy of­fers a per­fect chance to face hard truths with your part­ner. As dif­fi­cult as th­ese deep con­ver­sa­tions are to ini­ti­ate, com­mu­ni­ca­tion es­tab­lishes a new foun­da­tion of re­spect and trust, which makes you feel se­cure again. If you are not en­tan­gled in a part­ner­ship, to­day pro­vides a ripe op­por­tu­nity to con­tem­plate what you want from one. Clar­i­fy­ing what you need will help draw in what you seek.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):

Re­cov­ery is nec­es­sary to main­tain your mo­men­tum. If you have been work­ing too hard, you need to recharge your bat­ter­ies. Take your nose off the grind­stone and rest. A lan­guage bar­rier may be caus­ing a mis­un­der­stand­ing with a col­league to­day. People gen­er­ally mean well. Rely on your char­ac­ter­is­tic good cheer and play­ful per­son­al­ity, and try to tease your way into cre­at­ing a bridge. Thank­fully, laugh­ter is a uni­fy­ing force. Oprah Win­frey said, Great com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­gins with con­nec­tion.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

Cre­at­ing some­thing from scratch takes con­cen­trated ef­fort. Your so­cial life com­petes for your time and comes up short. You are hot on the trail of a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to a ma­jor project -- some­thing that means the world to you. No ounce of en­ergy can be wasted on fri­vol­i­ties to­day. A fam­ily mem­ber may even come to the res­cue by pay­ing some of your out­stand­ing debts, which brings wel­come re­lief. Forge ahead with un­wa­ver­ing de­ter­mi­na­tion. You know more than any­one that ded­i­ca­tion does not have an off-sea­son.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

Your do­mes­tic life is like an ar­chae­ol­ogy dig as layer by layer, you get closer to un­cov­er­ing dor­mant as­pects of your her­itage. Your lin­eage oc­cu­pies your thoughts more than usual, and you are likely to make some con­sid­er­able dis­cov­er­ies now. On a lighter note, a lo­cal flir­ta­tion hints at a chance for a more sig­nif­i­cant part­ner­ship. Some­one you never thought of in that way starts to turn on the al­lure. In­dulging in fan­tasies of a promis­ing dal­liance will keep your spir­its high. Au­thor Alan Co­hen ad­vises, Dance on the edge of mys­tery.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

The weeds of your mind clear on their own. You are steadily es­tab­lish­ing a new way of com­mu­ni­cat­ing and crave pro­found in­ter­ac­tions with oth­ers. Hap­pily, you might en­gage in a few no­table ex­changes, but you have to put your­self out there now. If you bury your­self in work, you may miss the chance. A burst of re­lief in your fi­nan­cial sec­tor means you can af­ford lunch out to­day. Treat your­self and take a mo­ment to con­nect to the world around you. You might just strike up the right con­ver­sa­tion with a stranger whose sen­ti­ments are sim­patico with your heart. Serendip­ity is magic.

SAGITTARIU­S (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

The re­gen­er­a­tion of your fi­nan­cial land­scape de­mands pru­dence now. Al­though you are not known for cau­tion, your in­creas­ing clar­ity around ques­tions of money helps you ex­er­cise it. Luck­ily, you al­ways find a way to have fun. Think up some­thing un­con­ven­tional that does not re­quire spend­ing, and you will have a blast. The odd­ball ap­proach might even as­sist you in deal­ing with the more se­ri­ous mat­ters. You can achieve both ob­jec­tives at once by di­vert­ing your at­ten­tion from ma­te­rial temp­ta­tion. Af­ter all, the best things in life are free.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

In­tro­spec­tion is the name of the game. You are tak­ing a sober look at your­self now and mak­ing some last­ing changes. It is an emo­tional process that can't be rushed. People who meet you sense the grav­ity of your de­meanor. Thank­fully, you do not have to dwell in doom and gloom un­less you pre­fer to be alone. Stretch your imag­i­na­tion. Break out some of your clas­sic dark hu­mor. Ac­tor Peter Usti­nov said, Com­edy is sim­ply a funny way of be­ing se­ri­ous.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

Clear­ing the old makes way for the new. You are still wrap­ping up some un­fin­ished busi­ness. Some of th­ese mat­ters re­quire you to re­treat from the world for a mo­ment. Let­ting go of what no longer serves you is nec­es­sary work that of­ten goes un­ap­pre­ci­ated. Yet we see this hap­pen ev­ery year: the leaves a tree sheds in fall al­low for the growth of new leaves in spring. They still have the same shape but are com­posed of fresh en­ergy. Re­lease what is out­worn, so there is plenty of room to re­gen­er­ate.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar 20):

An old friend­ship surges back into your world as other friend­ships may be wan­ing away. You can mea­sure your own progress in life against people you have known for a long time. Your mem­o­ries of each other crys­tal­lize and pre­serve as­pects of your­selves you might have for­got­ten. Vis­its help up­date your cere­bral soft­ware, so to speak, so that the old does not lock you into a shape you no longer hold. Rem­i­nisce, re­con­nect, and revel in the time­less joy of ca­ma­raderie.
