It’s your birthday week, Gemini. And with the sun and Mercury keeping you energized and full of ideas, this is the greatest entrepreneurial window for you to strike out with a new venture. It could be business, it could be art, it could be a new makeup palette for summer...whatever it is, it will be great.
Your Weekly Horoscopes: May 19 to 25
With the sun and Mercury spotlighting the dark recesses of your soul, you’ll want to take your random obsessions and run with them. Carve out some alone time to bird-watch or read every Game of Thrones fan theory or listen to your favorite historical podcast. Whatever your nerd kink is, let yourself indulge.
Your career is hot right now, Virgo, and it’s likely you’ll get one or two requests from VIPs to collaborate or take on some prestigious assignments. How do you manage the opportunities? Prioritize according to what’s new and challenging. If you’ve done it before, politely pass and save your strength for the unknown.
Embrace the urge to roam, Libra, because Gemini’s curious vibes are permeating your travel sector. If you can’t swing a ticket to Sydney or Istanbul, take a short drive and spend some time in the nearest Instagrammable town for a welcome shift in ambiance. Just don’t spend the whole trip on your phone...
When you want something, Scorpio, you’re loathe to talk about it. You prefer to work your magic behind the scenes, getting others to offer up the affection, information, raise, etc. without a formal request. But this week, speaking up will be more effective than sneaking around. The universe wants to give you what you need. You just have to step out of your comfort zone and ask.
This week, the sun and Mercury will team up to make sure that everything you say to your spouse or significant other will clearly communicate what you intended. And the best news? They'll actually be on the same page. Skip the movies in favor of a walk or dinner, where chemistry and conversation can take center stage.
Work a little mental exercise into your workout, Capricorn. Instead of your usual planks and pushups, try some high-intensity interval training or a sport like tennis or basketball that requires strategic maneuvering. This ensures that you’re giving enough attention to the most important muscle of all: your brain.
Liven up your domestic sphere this week, Pisces. Eclectic minimalism will refresh you at this time. That means: candles that smell like emotions, structurally intriguing design and a release of all the junk you already know doesn’t spark joy (get rid of that improv festival T-shirt already).
Time to bring your powers of persuasion to the negotiating table, Taurus. Whether you’re working out the terms of a new job offer or helping your spouse speak up for himself or herself when the siblings gang up on them (rude), your strategic counsel will win the day.
