Your daily horoscopes for Monday May 22, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
Do NOT leap first and ask questions later, Aries! Your already diminutive fuse may be shorter than usual today, thanks to a cosmic smackdown between impulsive Mars and combustible Jupiter. It’ll be easy to jump to (wrong) conclusions, so make a point of getting all the facts and giving everyone a chance to defend their positions. Under this truth-twisting square, don’t take anything at face value, especially when it comes to romance. In the game of love, you might have to bend the rules a little to get what you want.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
You don’t get scrappy or defensive all that often, Taurus, but when you do, look out world! Today might just be “one of those days,” thanks to an uneasy skirmish between outspoken Jupiter in your sign and pugnacious Mars. Things could be going just fine when you suddenly get the urge to let loose an emotional tirade. But unless you’re prepared to potentially lose a friend—or a client—hold your fire. These rebel winds WILL blow over, possibly by tomorrow, but once you let something rip, you can’t unsay it. Vent to your journal instead.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
You may struggle to honor a confidence you made to someone under today’s lip-loosening clash involving foot-in-mouth Jupiter and impulsive Mars. It’s not unusual for you to be dialed in to the tea, but this cosmic confab could make you especially indiscreet when it comes to spilling it. There’s a thin line between “sharing about friends” and out-and-out gossiping. So unless you’re willing to risk fraying an important bond, button your lips for safety.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
With boundless Jupiter in your community zone, you’re in the mood for a meeting with the squad—or at least for a casual night at the local pub. But thanks to a tangled angle with bossy Mars, it might be impossible to get everyone on the same page. This one wants a quiet dinner. That one has to work late. And on and on! Rather than waste your energy trying to herd cats, make a plan, let people know what’s going down, and don’t worry about who shows up.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
You may have to swallow a little pride today, Leo—but it’s in your own best interests. A clash between aggressive Mars in your sign and unbridled Jupiter in your career zone could lead you to say something that you will surely live to regret. When you feel your blood pressure rising, call a timeout and do some slow deep breathing to center yourself. Then come back to the situation and respond without being defensive. That way you won’t provoke anyone else with a hair-trigger temper!
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
Don’t be too quick to accept radical but brilliant-sounding ideas as gospel truth. Your analytical sign loves to explore different ideologies and is attracted to thought leaders. But today’s tangled angle between impulsive Mars and passionate Jupiter could cause you to drink the Kool-Aid before you’ve determined whether it’s toxic (or addictive). There’s nothing wrong with immersing yourself in some new beliefs—just keep a healthy skepticism so you don’t get pulled into a self-improvement riptide.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
It’s easy to fall down the digital rabbit hole, Libra. But when’s the last time you looked over your social media presence with a critical eye? You’ve got a perfect opportunity today, with motivated Mars in your tech sector connected with expansive Jupiter. In the flush of excitement, you may have posted some things that are better NOT being universally accessible or photos that felt appropriate on two-fer margarita night (but in the bright light of day feel all wrong). Find an hour or two today to clean up and clear out!
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
Who’s the boss? Well, you THOUGHT you were. But apparently there’s a mutiny forming in the ranks. It’s not every day that people question your authority, but that can happen when swaggering Jupiter forms a challenging square to intrepid Mars in your public zone. Perhaps you grabbed the reins on a project a little too aggressively? You may have to step back for the day and let someone else take the helm. Just don’t abandon ship altogether!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
Steer clear of soapboxes today, Sagittarius. It might be tempting to climb up on one, though, with outspoken Mars in your preachy ninth house squaring your ruler, smarty-pants Jupiter. But this is the kind of day when your well-intentioned words could come across as irritating—or worse, holier than thou. Save your pearls of wisdom for another time, like when people actually request your input. For now, turn that all-knowing attitude to a messy area of your own life that could stand a little improvement.

Capricorn (December 22-January 18) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
Like signmate Michelle Obama, go high today, no matter how low other people descend. It may not be easy—and you might need to give yourself repeated pep talks—but it WILL be worth it in the long run. Pugnacious Mars is clashing with know-it-all Jupiter in two very passionate parts of your chart. Even if someone else “started it,” no one says you have to finish it, especially when doing so could burn some strategic bridges. If someone you care about goes on the attack, do both of you a favor and refuse to engage.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
Should you stay or should you go? Not an easy decision to make—and today’s conflicting stars will only make it tougher. Thanks to a clash between honest-to-a-fault Jupiter and independent Mars in your relationship houses, you could get snagged on the horns of a very emotional dilemma. On the one hand, you’d love to make this work. But if you’re being brutally truthful with yourself, you know you’ve been expecting this for a while. It’s time to face it straight-on. But don’t give up hope! There might be a workable compromise.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Monday May 22
Today’s stars don’t exactly encourage your trademark compassion, but try not to abandon it! With shoot-from-the-lip Jupiter in your communication corner forming a stranglehold with impulsive Mars, even the most casual observation could hit below the belt. And forget about “constructive criticism” now. It’s sure to be taken the wrong way. Conversely, if someone continuously offers YOU unsolicited advice, let them know that when you want their opinion, you’ll ask for it.
