Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Friday May 12
With an Aquarius quarter moon highlighting your purpose-driven ninth house, you may realize you’ve strayed from your soul’s true calling. But it’s not too late to correct course, Gemini. Examine where you’ve diverted from your path. What small steps can you take to realign? You don’t have to quit your day job or do anything that dramatic.

Are your Spidey senses tingling, Crab? Today’s Aquarius quarter moon in your razor-sharp eighth house heightens your powers of perception. But these psychic moonbeams could also make you an energetic sponge. Shield your field so you don’t soak up other people’s emotions. Tip: Be selective about the company you keep and avoid the energy-zapping drama queens. Set boundaries with anyone who’s been taking advantage of your caring nature.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Friday May 12
Today’s quarter moon spotlights a partnership that’s tipped out of balance. Can you bring this union back to a place of equanimity? Pro tip: Continuing to “overfunction” or clean up others’ messes won’t show them the light. If anything, they’ll get lazier and you’ll become exhausted! It’s time to hold people accountable by insisting they pull their weight. But here’s the hard part: You’ll have to sit with YOUR anxiety and give them a chance to step up to the plate…before you rush in and do it for them!

Running on empty? Today’s Aquarius quarter moon lands in your restful twelfth house and gives you the grace to admit that you need a timeout. Last week’s Scorpio full moon and lunar eclipse illuminated some exciting new ideas, but before you set any new plans in motion, give them a moment to marinate. And while you may be craving company, steer clear of needy people who lure you into their chaos under the guise of seeking your advice. Power down your devices and tune in to yourself. Inspired answers will come once you’ve quieted your mind.
