After spending six uninterrupted months in your sign, expansive Jupiter moves on to Taurus until May 25, 2024. You may miss the red planet’s bonus jolt of confidence, but no need to sulk. Count your dollars instead. Taurus rules your second house of finances and security, and Jupiter hasn’t visited here since June 2011 to June 2012.

The past six months have been exhilarating, thanks to boundless Jupiter’s tour of Aries and your fifth house of fame, romance and creative expression.

You’ve been getting clear signs that it’s time to pump up the self-care (and dial back the hedonism). Being led by your passions was a blast, but now you’re ready to streamline, simplify and get your body, mind, spirit, house—and finances—in order. For clues where to start, look back to June 2011 through June 2012, when Jupiter last visited Taurus.

Expansive Jupiter swings into Taurus today, sounding a wake-up call in your fifth house of passion and creativity for the next 12 months. This is the abundance planet’s first visit since June 2012—a welcome change from its temperamental tour of your fourth house and home and family obligations, the final chapter of which began in December 2022. You’ve gone through a lot of emotional ups and downs since then, and you’ve grown internally. But enough with the brooding, Cap—a lively, lusty new cycle awaits! A new romance, a pregnancy or new artistic inspiration could be on the horizon between now and May 24, 2024.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 16
Time to follow your homing instincts. Today, expansive Jupiter sets up an astrological Airbnb in Taurus, your grounded fourth house. Between now and May 24, 2024, your desires around shelter may surprise you. Some Water Bearers could pull up stakes or give the digital nomad life a go. Wherever you find yourself, you may prefer quiet alone time over rollicking parties, slowing down and intensively focusing on one project at a time instead of multitasking. It’s even possible that you’ve outgrown a few friends. No worries, Aquarius. Now you can focus on people who desire your full attention.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 16
If you’re selling it, Pisces, we’ll take two! Today, effusive, maximizing Jupiter—your cosmic co-ruler along with dreamy Neptune—bounds into Taurus, waking up your expressive third house. Between now and May 24, 2024, you’ll have a silver tongue, so make the most of this articulate cycle. Got a message to spread or a brand to promote? Work with a pro to help you polish your stump speech, then start marketing your masterful ideas. This zone also rules local goings-on, so you could find yourself taking a more active role in your community in the coming year.
