FOR TO­DAY, MAY 23, 2019 ARIES (March 21-April 19):

You're not in­ter­ested in fight­ing to­day and will do nearly any­thing to main­tain the peace. Nev­er­the­less, some­one may con­tinue to as­sert their right to stand in your way, al­though their ac­tions seem more ag­gres­sive to you than de­fen­sive. In­stead of es­ca­lat­ing a mi­nor en­counter into a ma­jor con­fronta­tion for the sake of re­venge, con­sider the well­be­ing of ev­ery­one in­volved. But don't let the over­sen­si­tive Cancer Moon get the best of you as it trav­els through your 4th House of Se­cu­rity. Anne Frank wrote, In the long run, the sharpest weapon of all is a kind and gen­tle spirit.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20):

In­stead of mak­ing a pub­lic ap­pear­ance to­day, you pre­fer to share your feel­ings with a few close friends at close range. Youre com­fort­able dis­cussing the strength of your emo­tions while the moody Cancer Moon is vis­it­ing your 3rd House of In­for­ma­tion. Un­for­tu­nately, a pas­sion­ate di­a­logue can quickly de­gen­er­ate into a shout­ing match. How­ever, com­mu­ni­ca­tion is a two-way street and resolution requires com­pro­mise. Angli­can priest Nicky Gum­bel wrote, A lot of prob­lems in the world would be solved if we talked to each other in­stead of about each other.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

You may fi­nally get some time to your­self to­day, so you can re­con­nect with your feel­ings and repri­or­i­tize your life. Un­for­tu­nately, your time alone is more of a com­mod­ity than you re­al­ized, and you may need to cut it short in or­der to re­spond to the re­sis­tance of a close friend or part­ner. Even if you pre­fer to con­tinue your iso­la­tion, you must en­gage with the other per­son first to hold your po­si­tion. A power strug­gle is not nec­es­sar­ily fun, but if done right it es­tab­lishes you as your own au­thor­ity.

CANCER (June 21-July 22):

You need time to nur­ture your­self to­day, and that might mean you need to say no to a so­cial in­vi­ta­tion. The self-pro­tec­tive Cancer Moon urges you to honor your own feel­ings but her op­po­si­tion to three plan­ets in re­spon­si­ble Capri­corn makes it dif­fi­cult to walk out on pre­vi­ous obli­ga­tions. Al­though it may re­quire some jug­gling of your sched­ule, you can suc­cess­fully di­vide your at­ten­tion be­tween meet­ing your com­mit­ments and fol­low­ing your dreams. For­mer First Lady Michelle Obama said, We need to do a bet­ter job of putting our­selves higher on our own to-do list.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):

You want ev­ery­one to know you can be trusted when it comes to de­fend­ing those you love. Your par­tic­i­pa­tion in a com­mu­nity cause demon­strates that youre not just in it for your per­sonal gain. Nev­er­the­less, you might still try to slip off alone in an at­tempt to reestab­lish your cen­ter of grav­ity. Don't be too greedy with your own time now; be­ing in ser­vice em­pow­ers you to ex­pe­ri­ence a divine en­ergy only true al­tru­ism pro­vides. Robert Inger­soll wrote, We rise by lift­ing oth­ers.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

Spend­ing time in the com­pany of fel­low dreamers makes your day. It doesn't mat­ter whether any spe­cific ac­tiv­i­ties are planned, for it is the sim­ple act of shar­ing com­mon space that opens your heart. But don't just get to­gether with your friends to dis­cuss what you want to ac­com­plish in the real world. Take a risk and talk about your dreams, how­ever unattain­able they may be now. Zig Ziglar wrote, Peo­ple who build hope into their own lives and who share hope with oth­ers be­come pow­er­ful peo­ple.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

You're not afraid of as­sum­ing a lead­er­ship role to­day, for you in­tu­itively know whats best for ev­ery­one in­volved. Tak­ing peo­ple un­der your wing seems like the most nat­u­ral thing to do now that the ma­ter­nal Cancer Moon is vis­it­ing your 10th House of Re­spon­si­bil­ity. How­ever, mak­ing de­ci­sions for oth­ers is more com­pli­cated than it seems. Not only must you con­sider ev­ery­ones needs, you can't lose your­self in the process or all your ef­forts will be for naught. Au­thor David Allen wrote, You can do any­thing, but not ev­ery­thing.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

You're in pos­ses­sion of a long-term plan that could set you on a tra­jec­tory very dif­fer­ent from your cur­rent path. How­ever, big changes like this re­quire time, and the lack of im­me­di­ate move­ment may be adding to your cur­rent frus­tra­tion. In­stead of fo­cus­ing on ev­ery­one elses needs to­day, stand back and ob­serve your­self as part of the en­tire cos­mos. In an odd way, tak­ing care of your­self re­fu­els your gen­eros­ity to oth­ers. When destiny calls, stop what you are do­ing and lis­ten.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

You might feel as if your wings have been clipped, and there will be no soar­ing on the ther­mals now. Al­though it might be tough to tra­verse great dis­tances or to as­cend great heights, ex­plo­rations of the deep can still ful­fill your dreams of ad­ven­ture. It doesn't mat­ter whether you're in the wa­ters of the great oceans of Earth or in the wa­ters of hu­man emo­tion. Para­dox­i­cally, there is just as much to dis­cover be­neath the sur­face as there is in the starry heav­ens.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Some­one in your im­me­di­ate en­vi­ron­ment may be the cat­a­lyst for an un­com­fort­able change. A friend or fam­ily mem­ber might ex­hibit needy be­hav­ior to­day, mak­ing you want to run away as fast as you can. Un­for­tu­nately, you have less free­dom of move­ment than you pre­vi­ously imagined. But, all is far from lost. You have the power to change the dy­nam­ics through the in­for­ma­tion you pos­sess about your­self and oth­ers. Confront your fears, take the plunge and see where the jour­ney leads with­out try­ing to have it all mapped out in ad­vance. Over­plan­ning kills magic.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

You are most con­tent to­day when you are qui­etly work­ing on a project at home or, per­haps, in­dul­gently binge-watch­ing an old sea­son of your fa­vorite show. In ei­ther case, youre not re­liant on anyone else for your peace­ful state of mind now. Al­though a mid­day or evening ac­tiv­ity with friends might lift your spir­its, you re­ally cher­ish your pri­vacy while the shy Cancer Moon tensely op­poses sev­eral plan­ets in your 12th House of Es­capism. Michaela Chung wrote, A lit­tle hi­ber­na­tion is good for the mind.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar 20):

Al­though you may feel ex­tremely ex­pres­sive to­day, oth­ers might not see any ev­i­dence re­veal­ing your cur­rent creativ­ity. Para­dox­i­cally, your in­ge­nu­ity could re­main in­vis­i­ble un­til you bring out a paint­ing that you worked on be­hind closed doors or share a poem that is close to your heart. The timid Cancer Moon en­cour­ages you to re­main out of sight un­til you're ready for the show. De­nis Wait­ley wrote, Per­sonal de­vel­op­ment is the be­lief that you are worth the ef­fort, time, and en­ergy needed to de­velop your­self.
