Your daily horoscopes for Tuesday May 21, 2024

Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

You’re a straightforward person, Aries, but today’s opposition of the moon and expressive Mercury calls for a subtler approach. Take people’s feelings into account before you blast ’em with your unfiltered opinions. Timing is everything, and certain discussions are best had in private. Think twice before sharing secrets or spilling tea with people who haven’t earned proper loyalty points. Unless trust has been established, keep your cards close to your vest.

Taurus Daily horoscope

Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

Relationships are like mirrors, Taurus, reflecting back the good, bad and the difficult to digest. If you find that people are acting strange or standoffish today, look within. Maybe you came on a little too strong—yes, even if you were simply trying to help. Or maybe you’ve been too passive, waiting for THEM to make the next move. Whatever the case, seek a happier medium today, creating space if that’s needed or signaling a friendly gesture that shows interest.

Gemini Daily horoscope

Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

Pass the avocado toast—on sprouted-grain bread if you can? With the moon in your healthy-living zone today, you could be inspired to go clean and green. Instead of hitting happy hour, invite friends for a walk this evening. Imagine how good it will feel to catch up along the hiking trail instead of shouting over the noisy acoustics at a bar. With your ruler, Mercury, opposing the moon in your twelfth house of transitions, you could also devote the day to sprucing up your organizational systems so that they’re functional AND beautiful.

Cancer Daily horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

Forget about spending the whole day fussing with that spreadsheet or sending cold emails that get routed to Spam. With the Scorpio moon lighting your romantic and untamed fifth house, you need a splash of decadence. Pick up an almond croissant and a cafe au lait from the French bakery in the morning—wearing something colorful and head-turning. An attraction that was sparked over the weekend could heat up even more, so send that follow-up text! Don’t let pressure from friends persuade you to do anything that doesn’t feel like fun and magic. Mingling with a new group could be more invigorating than rolling with your go-to crew. Branch out!

Leo Daily horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

Keep on striving for that healthy work-life balance. Although the demands of the office may be fierce this Monday, you don’t have to have a stress meltdown in response. Think like a queen bee instead of a drone. What tasks can be outsourced, and which require your hands-on touch? With the Scorpio moon simmering in your domestic zone, turning Chateau Leo into a sacred space could be the evening’s “art project.” La luna trades barbs with clever Mercury in your career corner, so make sure your home base is not only a relaxing oasis but also a place where you can get work done after hours. Think of it as a studio for your multiple passion projects.

Virgo Daily horoscope

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

Today, your well-intentioned advice will land with a thud, so keep those helpful hints to yourself unless directly solicited. Think twice before advising your petite friend to avoid wide-legged pantsuits because they won’t “lengthen” her figure or to start career-coaching your romantic partner. With the Scorpio moon opposing persnickety Mercury, your feedback could come across as preachy or critical. If you want to broach a sensitive topic, share an anecdote from your own life instead of starting your sentence with “Have you ever thought about trying…?” Or adopt a “live and let live” attitude and let people learn from their own mistakes.

Libra Daily horoscope

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

Tune in to unspoken vibes today as the moon faces off with communicator Mercury in your esoteric eighth house. Your intuition could guide you toward someone who is helpful for your career. A romantic attraction is bubbling, and even if nothing’s been said aloud, you can feel those eyes on you. Enjoy the scintillating thrill and, if appropriate, come up with a clever way to get in some “just the two of us” time. Or not! Perhaps this confidence booster is just a lovely reminder that you’ve still got it.

Scorpio Daily horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

You love them, you love them not? Today’s opposition of the Scorpio moon and Mercury in your partnership realm could highlight mixed feelings about a mate or date. Try not to make any radical decisions, even if the two of you aren’t vibing the way you normally would. Maybe you need a little space to connect with other friends or just squeeze in some overdue “me time.” Don’t feel guilty! Absence makes your heart grow fonder. Not in the mood to DM and text into the wee hours? Politely let them know you’re going off-screen and that it’s not personal.

Sagittarius Daily horoscope

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

As much as you want to escape reality, don’t let denial be your copilot today, Sagittarius. A face-off of the moon and logical Mercury can help you find practical solutions to manage your feelings of burnout or resentment. If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed, stewing in the stress is the worst thing you can do. Take a deep breath, then ask for support. Reach out to friends who’ve been down the same road, especially in situations that pack an emotional punch. Their advice can simplify this whole process. Maybe it’s not as hard as you think!

Capricorn Daily horoscope

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

Groupthink alert! Going along to get along could lead you through some irritating detours today. Don’t be afraid to rock the boat if you feel the crew is drifting off-course. Sure, you might bruise a few egos by pointing out the subpar aspects of a plan. But those will heal, Capricorn, and will cause a lot less collateral damage than wasting time, money and resources on a bad idea. If people are unwilling to follow your advice, that might be your cue to look for more suitable collaborators.

Aquarius Daily horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

Should you put your name on the ballot today or find another party, fast? A group you’re involved with may be floundering for leadership, and you’re hearing the call to step in. But with the moon opposing communicator Mercury, certain facts may be obscured. For example: What responsibilities go along with being in charge? Also: What’s the time commitment, and will you have an adequate support team? Flattering as it is to be considered for this role, it might be too much to take on right now. Get the facts before you swan-dive in.

Pisces Daily horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 21

Can you handle the truth, Pisces? Today, the moon faces off with curious Mercury, cautioning you against getting involved in other people’s business. If you want to remain a free spirit who’s unfettered by drama, there are certain questions you shouldn’t ask. Remember, Pisces, it’s not your job to fix your friends, family and the strangers who tug at your heartstrings. Simply offering a few empowering words, like “You’ve got this,” can be the best way to support people who need to stand on their own two feet.
