Horoscopes May 13th-17th

Aries: Aries are known as the leaders of the pack. They prefer to initiate rather than complete. They are independent, have an upbeat personality, and bring excitement into other people’s lives.

  • You and a current or potential romantic partner may be in a strange space this week. Intellectual awareness battles emotional doubts. Communication could be vague and easily misinterpreted, so choose your words carefully, even though it may be difficult to find the right ones. Your relationship should survive the week, but your understanding of each other could suffer if you aren’t careful.

Taurus: Tauruses are all about reward and enjoy psychical pleasures, as well as material goods. They have an eye for beauty, tend to be good with finances, self-indulgent, and a little possessive at times.

  • Your intuition is operating at a high level, but you may not be able to make sense of the psychic impressions you’re receiving. The emotions, images, and symbols you pick up from others and the astral plane could be vague and easily misinterpreted. Write them down and look at them in a day or so. You should be able to make sense of them then.

Gemini: Gemini love to talk. They are expressive, quick-witted, sociable, ready for fun, but can also be known to be two-faced at times.

  • Creative energy may be high this week, but you may be unable to use it the way you’d like. Perhaps you don’t have a project to work on or you have writer’s block. Ideas may come, but you don’t know what to do with them. The best course may be to write them down. At least you will have your thoughts for another day.

Cancer: Cancers take pleasure in the comforts of home and family. They love to nurture others. They are also known to be sentimental, emotional, sensitive, and to get attached very quickly to others.

  • A family member or close friend may withdraw from you. This person appears to be going through a private emotional crisis and isn’t apt to confide in you now. Your inclination would be to push it, but this could be a mistake. Give them the chance to share with you when the time is right. Sometimes we need to work things out for ourselves.

Leo: Leos love being the center of attention and have a desire to be loved. They are known to be impatient and egotistic, yet passionate.

  • You could have some strange interactions this week. Communication isn’t likely to run smoothly so you may have to make an effort to choose the right words, go into as much detail as possible, and ask if you’re being understood. Otherwise, things could get more complicated.

Virgo: Virgos are picky, critical, and have great attention to detail. They are seen as innocent, dedicated, and witty, but can also be overbearing, self-destructive, and preachy.

  • Money matters may seem up in the air this week. Your usual practicality may desert you. This could make you stressed and angry because you’re perfectly capable of dealing with your finances. Don’t worry. The vagueness should pass by next week. In the meantime, get some help, or if your concerns aren’t too urgent, wait a day or two. Give yourself a break.

Libra: Libras are kind, gentle, and lovers of beauty, harmony, and peace. However, in their effort to keep everyone happy, they find it difficult to say ‘no’ to anyone, and as a result, they end up getting stressed.

  • You might be in the midst of an exciting creative project with a partner, and anxious to move forward so that you can present it to the public. But you might feel distracted and unable to focus on your work. Don’t get too upset. These things happen. Be patient and wait until next week if you have to. You will be back in the groove by then.

Scorpio: Scorpios are seen as serious, known to keep their emotions hidden, are very intuitive, mysterious, and intense. They are known to have brilliant minds and be very controlling of the people and situations around them.

  • Confusion may reign this week as you try to glean some information that seems to be totally elusive. For now, it might be better to work on something else and go back to your research in a few days. To keep at it now might involve you in a lot of work for negligible results.

Sagittarius:  Sagittariuses are seen as being curious and energetic. They are one of the biggest travelers among all zodiac signs. Their open mind and philosophical views motivate them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life.

  • A sibling or neighbor might be compelled to move away. This might be emotionally wrenching, and you could have a difficult conversation with this person. It isn’t always easy to let go of someone you care about, but this could be a valuable lesson in detachment. It will probably take you a while get used to the idea, though you still won’t like it. Hang in there!

Capricorn: Capricorns are all about hard work. They are very ambitious, determined, conservative, helpful, and practical. They are good team leaders, are known to have a single-minded focus, but can also be resentful and suspicious of others.

  • A phone call could inform you of difficulties at home that require that you deal with them right away. This is nothing to be alarmed about, just one of those irritating little hassles that requires attention when you’d rather turn in another direction. Take care of it efficiently so you can get back to your activities. Stay calm!

Aquarius: Aquarians are shy and quiet, but on the other hand they can be eccentric and energetic. However, in both cases, they are deep thinkers and highly intellectual people who love helping others. They can see without prejudice on both sides, which makes them people who can easily solve problems.

  • A temporary separation from a romantic partner might have you despairing this week. Your imagination may conjure up all sorts of dreadful scenarios, like your beloved finding someone else. Don’t do this to yourself. Your friend probably misses you, too. Keep busy so the days pass quickly until your friend comes back and you’re together again. Be patient!

Pisces:  Pisces are very friendly, so they often find themselves in a company of very different people. They are selfless, and always willing to help others without hoping to get anything back. They are characterized by empathy and expressed emotional capacity.

  • Material values may pale beside spiritual ones this week. You might consider giving up and retreating to the wilderness. This would perhaps make a good vacation, but you probably aren’t ready to chuck it all just yet. Don’t be too hard on yourself if your enjoyment of worldly pleasures returns tomorrow. Changes like this come gradually, not overnight. Take it at your own pace.
