Today's Free Daily Horoscope - May 20 2016
● General: Today might not go down in history as the most exciting 24 hours of your life, but your routine will be thrown on its ear for at least part of the day. This will create quite a bit of frenzy. The good news is that right now you're in the perfect frame of mind to deal with whatever hiccups pop up -- you won't get rattled and you won't get distracted by feelings of resentment or frustration. You have an amazing ability to stay focused right now, which will help you stay sane!
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You are feeling untested and wondering why there are only such small tasks on your desk. You may be frustrated with all the details, but they're where the challenges are. Look a bit deeper.
● Finances: It's a slow, leisurely day, but for some reason you're not comfortable with the pace. You'd much rather be dealing with things that change fast enough to keep you on your toes. Don't get upset if that just doesn't happen.
● Love: Make an effort to be more positive. It's easy to sink into pessimistic thoughts but in the long run you'll be worse off than before. There's always someone else who has it rougher.
● General: Surprise someone with a sweet show of affection and compliments today! Even if you barely know them, you can really brighten their day by letting them know you like their haircut or that they've got a great laugh. As for the people you know and love, well, the sky's the limit! Give out hugs left and right to the people who support you when you're feeling low. Peck your sweetie on the cheek as soon as you see them! You love means little unless you spread it out into the world!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Of course it's not fun -- that's why they call it work! But it can be deeply satisfying, downright romantic even, and that's just the labor itself. Open up to your colleagues and you'll really enjoy getting things done.
● Finances: Without intensity, life is hardly worth living. Oh, the drama! Whether you're flush or broke is not as important as whether or not you're feeling deep emotions. If you don't care, just don't bother.
● Love: A cute nickname can be a term of endearment, but know your audience before you go giving all your crushes new monikers. Only close confidants should be allowed a fun handle, or else you could just be insulting.
● General: This is the perfect day to catch up on your correspondence -- why not do something crazy like write someone a letter? There is one long distant friend in particular who would get immense pleasure out of opening their mailbox and seeing your name on the upper left corner of the envelope! Find a quiet spot later in the day and just jot down a few updates on what's been going on and what you want to do. It's never too late to gain a new pen pal, and the retro simplicity will feed your soul.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Sometimes it pays to simply attend to a distraction instead of trying to block it out all day long. Run an errand, check on a bill, call your family -- whatever it takes to get your head back down to earth and into the office.
● Finances: Roads you know like the back of your own hand tempt you to drive faster than you should. When you're not familiar with the terrain, though, you need to take it a lot slower. You're in unknown financial territory. Proceed with caution.
● Love: You're so great at giving advice, so why can't you take it? Problems always seem easier to handle when they're not yours to stress over. The next time a pal offers some wisdom, listen instead of tuning them out.
● General: Today is a very good day for tackling any major clean up projects you've been putting off -- including picking up clutter around the house, organizing your office cubicle, or clearing up a misunderstanding between you and a friend. You can see the path to clarity and will have no problem navigating your way along it. All it takes is an early start to create an early finish -- and then you will have the rest of the day to relax and have some good times with some good people.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Passing all the small details off to someone else is perfectly legit -- as long as it's to someone who can handle them. If so, spend the day making plans, connecting with others or just organizing your desk.
● Finances: You're sick of sitting on the fence, and yet you just can't make up your mind. The sticking point isn't the money, either. The emotional intensity you feel has more to do with your heart than your wallet, and that just confuses the issue. Sigh.
● Love: Today, communication is good with people you normally try to avoid. Make an effort to make amends for past mistakes, and open up a dialog to jump-start stale friendships. Chat with strangers you've wanted to know more about.
● General: When it comes to building up your finances, you can't rely strictly on advice from friends! If you want to get serious about money issues, then you have to get serious about researching them. Start poking around online and find a few sites that address your goals and your challenges. Then, stop by a book store and find a book that will help you focus on getting a better grip on your expenses. Reviewing your budget might sound fun at first, but it will be very empowering.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: The whole office is forced to be more thrifty and conservative than usual, and for once you can't blame your boss. You're in step with the rest of the world right now. Be prepared for yet another budget review.
● Finances: It's one of those high-anxiety days. All the information you so desperately need is hidden beneath the surface. You can't even find you car keys, much less the key to the riddle you want to unravel. Definitely not a day to put down your money.
● Love: Your insightful approach to relationships impresses others so much they may be asking you for love advice in the future. Flattering as it may be, you may want to keep your wisdom to yourself unless you want to be blamed for a broken heart.
● General: Someone might challenge one of your beliefs or opinions today, and some of the things they say will make sense! Your first instinct will be to defend your position firmly, but give yourself a couple minutes before doing that. Take minute to be open and listen to what they are saying. Some of it will resonate with you in a profound way. Believe it or not, you could be wrong -- it does happen every once in a while. Changing your position to accept more grey areas is wise.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Stop! Don't start anything new before you address some very basic issues. Tidy your desk until things make sense again. You can start new projects once you're more organized.
● Finances: If you ever wanted to be an Olympic diver, now's your chance. Sort of. You get to dive into an issue suddenly, deeply and gracefully. Taking the initial plunge is just the beginning of the adventure.
● Love: It's a great day to get the attention of someone new. Flirt with intention. People will respond in a positive light, so use it to your advantage. Let your inhibitions go.
● General: You're in a very open-minded phase of life, and could be changing your opinions about a lot of diverse issues -- this is a sign of healthy growth, but it might confuse your friends and family. You should address their concerns head on and have a few conversations about what has changed -- doing nothing at all to address your new perspective will only create skepticism and cause many people to assume that you are trying to put on an act. Don't let that happen.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: A colleague pretends to let bygones be bygones, but you're too perceptive to fall for that. A grudge is being held, you can just feel it. Doing a top notch job is the only way to get the chip off their shoulder, so get to work.
● Finances: Whether it's material possessions or money itself, something of value changes hands. You should do more than hope you're on the receiving end. Remind yourself that business is business.
● Love: That nagging voice in your head just doesn't seem to want to go away. Chances are you need to rectify a wrong before it gets worse. Look into your heart to find a solution you can live with.
● General: One of your closest friend's emotions are right on the surface today -- so be very sensitive around them. It's anyone's guess which name or word will set them off, so it's best to stick to small talk and safe topics unless you want to get into a heated discussion. And that favor you needed from them? It's a good idea to put off asking them for a few more days. Everyone needs to be treated a little gingerly today, and today it's their turn. You aren't going to mind anyway.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Some things are better left as secrets. Among friends, that is. When it comes to colleagues, you'll be doing the whole office a favor if you spill the beans.
● Finances: If someone isn't drawn to you, then they must be made of wood, as far as you're concerned. That's certainly one way to look at it. Another is, it's time for either inner or outer rejuvenation. Start spending money on it.
● Love: It's a good day to show your flirty side. Laugh freely at funny stories, and let your crush know that you are indeed interested in everything they have to say. Smile, wink, hug and use your charm to send a clear message.
● General: Planning your next romantic move can be a blast, but try not to get too caught up in the details of everything -- you will drive yourself crazy trying to get everything to line up perfectly. This person is up for anything, and doesn't want you to be stressed. The first step toward intimacy can only be made when both people let down their guards and are prepared to show themselves for who they are -- warts and all. Just create a loose plan and the two of you can wing it.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: If only you could rush ahead, from one plan to another. But others in the office insist on the details. Don't waste time and energy letting them drive you crazy when you have already swum out to the deep end.
● Finances: Last night's dreams haunt you today. Are they a wake up call or just some marshmallow fluff? Spending time alone trying to answer this question is all you want to do.
● Love: Is your dogma getting in the way of finding true love? Instead of stubbornly sticking to your usual rules of life, maybe it's time to break a few. Be open to new possibilities and people.
● General: As soon as you can find the facts you are seeking, your project will kick into high gear! So if that deadline is making you nervous, turn your curiosity up and get to work filling in the missing information, today. There is at least one person who has the time and the energy to help you on this quest, so don't be shy about asking for their assistance. Make this a team effort, and you will get so much more out of it. Crossing the finish line with someone right beside you will feel good.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Another project, grounded. Is it you, the projects or something else altogether? Look into the details before wasting any time wondering about your career trajectory.
● Finances: With your funds as they are, it's not a good day to decide where you want to retire, that's for sure, but thinking about it might help while away the hours. Go ahead and dream.
● Love: A lot can be achieved today as long as you don't get distracted. Keep friends and crushes at bay until you cross enough items off your to-do list. You'll have plenty of time to play later.
● General: There is joy beneath the surface of everything right now, and you are in the exact right frame of mind to see it! Look again at that stranger walking by you -- don't you see a smile? Whether they're flirting with you or not isn't even relevant. They are happy -- and that will make you happy. You are clearly in a strong period of ease right now, where you can put in half the effort to get the full reward. Things are coming to you more quickly and people are working around your schedule.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Settle down! Others are more grounded than you are, and that is a handicap for you. You need to table your excitement long enough to look beneath the surface glitter.
● Finances: You're searching out a little bit of privacy to sit and do some serious thinking. It could be time to change courses entirely. Before you change tacks, though, give your ambition a serious assessment.
● Love: Pretend you're a sociologist today as you discuss personal issues with your friends. You can learn a lot by not only listening to the discussion but also by paying attention to body language. Be observant and make a detailed analysis.
● General: If you are just about finished with a major project or getting awfully close to reaching an important goal, today is the day you need to put in one final push to finally get it all done! You have plenty of energy, and you have plenty time -- as a matter of fact, the only thing that you are running out of are excuses! Let your inner go-getter help you go forward a little bit farther than you normally would, and you will get some serious recognition for a job well done.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: A new project means new people to work with, and you can't be too critical of the folks you spend your days with. Just who are you really dealing with? You'll find out sooner or later, if you haven't already.
● Finances: If a friend was treating you like a doormat, would you put up with it? Not likely. Being as irresolute as you are in the face of a business situation isn't acceptable, either. Stare down the oppressor or risk being considered spineless.
● Love: Relationships have their ups and downs. But only the strong ones survive when both parties are willing to make compromises. No friendship is worth sacrificing just to save face. Swallow your pride and apologize.
