Your daily horoscopes for Thursday May 11, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
You want to get down to brass tacks, but being overly businesslike can interfere with progress today. Try a more personable approach instead. You might think small talk is a waste of time, especially when you’re focused (impatiently) on producing a result. Friendly reminder, Ram: Taking time to form a connection is a smart strategy. This allows people a chance to warm up to you—and once they do, they’ll be eating out of the palm of your capable hand.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
With the moon in your baller tenth house, direct your energy to people who actually have the ability to make the needle move. Reconnect with a colleague who’s gone on to do big things, or DM contractors, collaborators, hired guns…anyone with the requisite skills to get a mission in motion. While you may have to strike an innovative deal in order to afford the support you need, don’t fixate on price today. Start the conversation with curiosity and see what you turn up.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
It’s one thing to genuinely share your feelings, Gemini, but if you’ve been sounding like a broken record lately, lift that needle up out of the groove. That can happen in one of two ways. Either you change the subject altogether or you alter the way you’re talking about it. Rather than harping on the upsetting situation, focus on coping strategies and proactive ways to move ahead. When you DO invariably need to vent, pick a solution-oriented sounding board.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
With the moon in your sultry eighth house, you could draw people into a seductive exchange without even realizing it. While it’s all just harmless banter to you, don’t underestimate the power of your purr. An unintended “mark” could misread your signals, and letting them down might be a messy process you’d prefer to avoid. Focus your charms on someone you actually want to woo. Under today’s skies, they’ll be putty in your hands.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
Gentle reminder: Partnerships are supposed to be a give and take, Leo. If you’ve been doing all the initiating lately, pull back and give the other person a legit chance to make a move. Eager as you may be for their company, you don’t want to come across as desperate or needy. (Perish the thought!) Plus, they might retreat from your full-court press of a pursuit. Try this instead: Make your life so deliciously attractive that people find you impossible to resist.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
Here we go again, Virgo. People are still expecting you to be “the responsible one.” And while you DO excel at this role, you might be shortchanging another leader in the making by automatically stepping up to the plate. As the moon squares your ruler, social Mercury, try something different. Wait before you volunteer—even if you have to sit on your hands to avoid replying to that group text. Those so-called slackers might surprise you by making the reservations, picking up tickets or offering to host the next family party.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
You’ve had enough of the game playing. Now you want to let it all hang out. But don’t get mad at other people who are clutching their cards close to their vests. Could it be that you started this whole cat-and-mouse chase by being elusive yourself? If you want to change the rules, you may have to do some recon work. Make it obvious that you’re interested today. Otherwise, your target could scamper away, exhausted from the mixed signals.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
With the moon anchoring in your intimate fourth house, you want to be around your nearest and dearest. Whether that’s your family or your inner circle of friends, keep the guest list small for all activities. Chateau Scorpio would be a great location for any evening plans. Pull together a dinner party, potluck or movie night. If you’re a musical Scorpio, this could turn into an impromptu jam session, so keep that acoustic guitar nearby.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
A friend or coworker could ask for a favor today that you’re not fully keen on granting. Awkward! While it’s true that you owe them one, the request may fall outside of your comfort zone. Don’t let obligation do the talking here, Sagittarius. Negotiate and make a counteroffer. You could pitch in for part of the mission or provide support in some other way. Talk about it—together you can find a win-win that leaves you both feeling great.

Capricorn (December 22-January 18) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
Slow down, Capricorn. Today’s planets help you relax into a sensual groove. What’s the point of racing to a destination if you don’t enjoy the journey? Roses are blooming at every turn, so stop and smell them. When you’re talking to people, keep your mobile tucked into your bag with the ringer off. Make an effort to be fully present with people, and even short visits and brief exchanges will be meaningful today.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
With the moon in Aquarius, this will be an active and exciting day. If there’s a project you’ve been putting off, devote a few hours to advancing it to the next stage. This may involve sitting down for lunch or coffee with someone and asking for advice. Planning to socialize after work? You may want to break away from the pack a bit. As much as you love your close friends and family, you also get a charge out of meeting new people. You could add a few new (and exciting) names to your phone before you hit the sack.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Thursday May 11
Social media friends and casual acquaintances can’t fill your tanks like a bona fide bestie. Log off the apps today and turn your attention to your inner circle. If you’ve been MIA, Pisces, apologize, but don’t drown in guilt. That will just waste time that would be better spent bonding. Besides, you’re human, like the rest of us. Whether you’ve been exploring, spiraling or obsessed with work, let your people in on your emotional state. Support is a two-way street.
