Horoscope for May 16, 2016

ARIES: Trying to be in control all the time can sometimes backfire, so you lose what you might have gained. Other people may be demanding quite a lot of you, so watch you don’t end up feeling resentful, or set off a martyr complex. But having to fit in all the time with other people’s plans, whims, suggestions and orders can be a bit of a bore. So just do what makes you feel virtuous, but don’t let other people push you too much.
TAURUS: Everyone around should be responding well to your presence since you are so warm and outgoing. You are bringing a real breath of sunshine into rooms when you sweep in. Your constitution should feel stronger than usual. You want to be flamboyant and exuberant, to be in the spotlight, basking in the limelight. Clearly not a time to be keeping your feelings to yourself. So go flirt, have fun, play games with loved ones, children or social buddies. Forget routine chores.
GEMINI: This is when you plan, ponder and prepare for what is about to come nearer your birthday. Do not be discouraged by what is not working out as quickly as you expected. Just have patience and what you want will all come right very soon. This is a good time to be self-protective and retreat into a private place, preferably at home. So much the better, if you can manage to take some time off. You want to push away the hassles and hustle.
CANCER: Helpful practical advice will put you on the right lines, though obviously the decision will be yours at the end of the day. You may be saying things to others in a way that they don’t entirely understand. You don’t stop, stand back and come to any conclusions or be reflective. The words all just flow out like a flood. Whereas if you could pause to reflect and be a bit more sensible about one or two things, it really would help enormously.
LEO: Rather proud and dignified just now you are putting a good deal of emphasis on personal reputation. You will dislike more than usual being passed over for praise at work. You want to be noticed, not made to feel one of the crowd. You will be amazingly charming as long as everything goes your way, otherwise your stubborn side may show through. Do not dig your heels in too hard. Money and security are the main things on your mind for a brief spell.
VIRGO: Maybe you aren’t being very practical at the moment but you can always sort out what is workable later on. This is the much more exciting stage of allowing your visions to flourish. Try not to get hypersensitive or over react to other people’s comments. Sometimes you can just get yourself worked up about things that are not as important as you’re making them out to be. Try to give yourself some space to just wind down and be a bit more at peace.
LIBRA: At times it may seem a little like a battlefield as confrontations litter your way ahead. You may complain about your difficult path but it won’t last too much longer. If you’re around others too much, you’ll end up being subjected to their demands so you might as well give yourself permission to go off and do what you want to do for yourself. You’ll be surprised in the quiet moments how inspiration suddenly hits you about things that seemed to have no answer.
SCORPIO: Blessed with tact and diplomacy, you should notice an improvement in your social life now. Your charming manner, a way of putting others at ease will be attracting all manner of compliments and intriguing invitations. You may be dashing around 16 different people, trying to sort out what they think about this or that, and getting confused as a result. But at the end of it all you’ll be able to come to your own judgements. You will know where to commit your energy.
SAGITTARIUS: Maybe you are feeling resentful because you are not given all the appreciation you might like or higher rewards for your labours. But at the end of the day you will be better pleased doing a good job for its own sake, rather than gaining success and glory in the world. Especially now you’ll want to be more protective of those around at work or out in the community. The more you give, the more everyone will think you are absolutely marvellous.
CAPRICORN: More than anything what you want is to be applauded, so you will be hamming it up madly at times, but so charmingly everyone will clap even harder. You need an escape route from dreary mates or restrictive chores. You want pals as well as lovers now, nothing too intense or claustrophobic will do. It’s a very upbeat time, when you will want to communicate on a much broader scale. There may be messages coming in from abroad or from a distance away.scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: If you can push heavier chores at work to one side for a few more days it will help. Rather inward looking, you would like to feel more in touch with your soul. Spiritual growth will be more important to you than outer ambition or glittering acclaim for a few weeks. Your emotional responses will be more intense for a while. Important, influential or strong minded people will be drawn into your orbit, tread softly, and not say everything you think.
PISCES: If you spread yourself too thin, you may come across as superficial. Try to pause for breath once in a while, and collect your wits. It is important at the moment for you to be well regarded for your intelligence and way with words, so you will need to acquire depth as well as breadth of knowledge. Try not to be jealous or possessive or get yourself unsettled if things are not going precisely as you want. You might hear slights where none exist.
