Your daily horoscopes for Wednesday May 31, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
Try as you might to detach, you’re more of a mushball than a hard-boiled Ram under today’s sensitizing skies. The gentle Libra moon in your relationship zone is glaring at Venus in moody Cancer, leaving your nerves raw. It won’t take much to upset you, but you can’t expect people to read your mind. Be a chess player and think a few moves ahead in interactions with key people. The best way to prevent being hurt or disappointed is to avoid hot-button issues in the first place!
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
Don’t be too quick to raise your hand and volunteer for duties you haven’t remotely got time for! With the moon in compassionate Cancer and your social sector at odds with people-pleaser Venus in your sixth house of work and service, it’ll be all too easy to stretch beyond your comfort zone. While you COULD pull this off if absolutely necessary, the question remains: Why bother? Are you trying to curry favor or win someone’s love or approval? That’s a bottomless pit, so before you fall into that trap, just say no.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
Note to stressed-out Geminis: “Retail therapy” is not actually healing. When you’re feeling anxious or overwhelmed, turn to something you know you can immerse yourself in that won’t ratchet up the tension. (Or leave you with a huge bill 30 days from now.) It could be a work or creative project, a flirtatious chat with a love interest or some physical activity. With the moon in your amorous fifth house clashing with sensual Venus in your second house of security, the one thing you don’t want to do is act out of frustration or fear.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
For your sanity’s sake, erect stronger boundaries with friends and especially relatives today. With the empathic moon squaring off against compassionate Venus in your sign, you’ll reflexively try to help out someone in need. But in doing so, you risk getting derailed on your own important work. If this isn’t another episode in a long-running (and never-resolved) drama, take the call and listen—briefly. Then let them know you’re in the middle of something, but if they TRULY need you, you’ll be there for them.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
Your normally hyper-clear vision of your place in the world might get a little cloudy today as the nebulous moon clashes with rosy-eyed Venus in your twelfth house of fantasy. This could leave you second-guessing an upcoming move (a physical one or some other major shift you’re planning). Try to stay open to ideas and inspiration that come from unfamiliar sources. As you continue to evolve and mature, certain things that were “so you” might not fit anymore. This transit offers a chance to step back and recalibrate.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
Grab the project-manager’s clipboard and whistle and get this thing under control! A group mission may threaten to derail if someone doesn’t take the wheel, and who better to do that than your organized, detail-minded sign? Plus, you’ve got diplomatic Venus touring your eleventh house of teamwork intimately connected with the intuitive moon in your pragmatic second. If someone takes exception to your power move, distract and redirect with a whole-team brainstorming session.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
You’re ready to take on the world today, Libra, but first make sure you have the right resources, support and intel. With your heavenly helper, gracious Venus, in your professional zone, you should be fairly at ease in the spotlight. But a tense square from the moon in your sign could activate your people-pleasing tendencies and make you second-guess your clear-eyed mission. Don’t water down your message. Block out the dissenting voices and stay true to the cause. Remember the saying: Your vibe attracts your tribe.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
Too much of a good thing is sometimes still too much. While a “happy medium” can be hard to come by for your all-or-nothing sign, today’s stars advocate for a dose of moderation. With decadent Venus in your bottomless ninth house grappling with the moon in your subconscious zone, you may struggle to find the Off switch. This applies to food, drink, sex and anything else that could be either a pleasure or a vice depending on how it’s used. Before you act, try to get a handle on the emotion that’s driving it.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
You may struggle to strike the perfect balance between taking ownership of a certain project or relationship and not veering into control-freak territory. Today, the moon in amiable Libra and your community-minded sector is at loggerheads with Venus in your shadowy eighth house. The trick is to be involved enough so you can manage your own duties but still be able to step back off and let others do their thing. You might need to have a candid chat with someone who’s not carrying THEIR weight.
Capricorn (December 22-January 18) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
You might THINK you’re on the same page as your partner (romantic or business), but today’s contentious skies pull back the curtain and reveal a different scene. With the moon in your ambitious tenth house, you’re ready to spring into action. But a stern beam from Venus in moody Cancer and your relationship zone suggests someone might feel a little jealous or left out. Hit pause and talk things through so you both can listen to each other’s point of view without getting defensive.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
Stay focused on the big vision and don’t sweat the petty stuff, Aquarius! That may be easier said than accomplished under today’s cosmic kerfuffle between the moon in your expansive zone and Venus in your house of details. Part of you is afraid of what’ll happen if you overlook the minutiae. Yet you’re aware of how much time and energy you’re wasting dotting those “i”s. Aim for a happy medium: Do your blue-sky thinking first, get it sketched out, then let the inner perfectionist polish it to a high gloss!
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday May 31
It’s hard to tell when you’re just having a regular day and when you’re on emotional overload. But you may have a strong sense of “whoa, this is pretty intense, even for a Pisces” under today’s sensitive skies. Compassionate Venus is in touchy Cancer and your passionate fifth house—and she’s creating friction with the delicate moon in your eighth house of intense feels. Turn to that one friend who can always handle your moods—and who always knows the perfect thing to say to help you regain equilibrium.
