For Thursday, May 26th, 2016
The ongoing struggle to balance realism with optimism takes center stage now as expansive Jupiter squares contractive Saturn in a slow-moving dance that began last summer. Too much growth too fast is just as dangerous as so much caution that we do nothing at all. Thankfully, we receive help from the Moon's shift into intellectual Aquarius at 10:26 am EDT, giving us the ability to step back and think about our lives from a more global perspective.
Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19
You are eager to bolt fearlessly into the future without waiting for the red light to turn green. However, the Moon's presence in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals isn't enough to make everything work in your favor now. The real challenge is to maintain your high level of passion without impetuously disregarding the rules of the road. Although Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm," the trick is to channel your excitement into something productive.
Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20
You may seize an opportunity to earn some extra cash, achieve recognition for your work or simply make progress on a continuing project. However, it won't be a straightforward path today, even with sound logic and a solid plan on your side. Thankfully, there are no surprises now; any obstacles you encounter only remind you of what you already know. Keep one eye on your wallet and the other on your watch. Cleverly managing your resources is the key to your success.
Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20
Although your brain is busy generating big ideas these days, someone is likely to rain on your parade. Naturally, you prefer receiving encouragement from your friends and coworkers rather than criticism. However, taking the time to understand the constructive feedback means the difference between failure and success now. Don't let your pride get in the way of recognizing the truth. Most people can hear, but only a few truly listen.
Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22
Interpersonal dynamics are more complicated today, leading you to wonder whether this is the right time to sprint to the finish line. But it's unlikely that you can reach your destination on your own once the Moon settles into your 8th House of Shared Resources. You just want to call it a day, close up shop and head home. However, this is a critical moment that is testing your determination. Instead of bailing when times get tough, make a commitment to deepen those relationships which you know are part of your current journey.
Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22
People seem a bit weirder than normal today, making it difficult to know who to trust with your future. Although you can see great potential in the creative visions of others, you're not ready to set aside your own needs and desires for the sake of someone else's. The more narrowly you focus now, the better your chances are to manifest your dreams. As Buddha said, "The mind is everything; what you think you become."
Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22
You might approach your regular tasks in a unique manner today, but you may not succeed even if your ideas are quite innovative. Resistance to your course of action isn't necessarily obvious now; it could come from hidden pockets of old family dynamics or current interpersonal tension. Thankfully, your positive attitude is sufficient to keep your plans afloat, even in the face of negativity. As cartoonist Matthew Inman writes, "It's okay to color outside of the lines as long as it's beautiful."
Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22
It's disarmingly easy to stand on your soapbox and declare your intentions today because you assume that others will rush to join your cause. Unfortunately, even your closest friends may take some convincing to see your point of view. But there is no excuse for wasting your time or anyone else's. Fortunately, proper preparation enables you to deliver your message as succinctly as possible. Plenty of people dream of success, but others work hard to achieve it.
Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21
Not only do your friends encourage you to pursue your brilliant ideas, but they are sensible enough to step out of your way if they can't be of immediate help. Nevertheless, it could be frustrating if there isn't the time or money needed to complete the tasks that are on your agenda now. There's no reason to be overly secretive about the obstacles you face while trying to reach your goals. As fairy-tale author Aesop wrote, "Do not attempt to hide things which cannot be hidden."
Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21
The light at the end of the tunnel appears bigger and brighter now as you approach it. However, there is a paradox at play; it seems the closer you get to your career goal, the longer it takes to get there. Optimistic Jupiter is beaming energy into your 10th House of Status, empowering you to spread your wings. But meanwhile, sobering Saturn in your 1st House of Self is setting up roadblocks in your path. Thankfully, you can make steady progress if you're willing to claim your power by remaining true to your values.
Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19
Your appearance is misleading today, especially if you consciously go out of your way to camouflage your ambitious nature. Everyone thinks you are being uncharacteristically nonchalant about your future, but they couldn't be further from the truth. Nevertheless, stern Saturn's current posturing in your 12th House of Invisibility allows you to charm everyone by neatly burying your inner authority in your imagination where others can't see it. As author Aldous Huxley wrote, "Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored."
Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18
You possess a storehouse of personal power today. Unfortunately, your peers seem to be overly harsh in their judgment of your work. You can spend so much energy responding to the current criticism that you exhaust yourself before completing all the items on your agenda. Fortunately, the Moon's current visit to your conceptual sign enables you to remain emotionally detached. Engaging with others by sharing what's in your heart only becomes a problem when you become so attached to the outcome that you can't let go.
Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20
You are quite serious about getting ahead in your career now as you plot your way up the proverbial ladder of success. However, you can't deny that it's more enjoyable to hang out with a friend or lover who encourages you to consider other avenues of satisfaction, too. Just as you settle into a productive groove, you might feel as if you're being distracted from your work by your own drive for pleasure. But this isn't about choosing one path over the other; find a way to integrate Jupiter's expansive nature with Saturn's need for achievement. Do what makes you happy and be with those who make you smile.
