Your Daily Horoscope for Wednesday, May 16


March 21- April 19

Today, you're antsy. Trying to sit still and focus is probably a losing battle, so find ways to switch things up. If you need a change of scenery at the office, work in a different location than usual, or get up for walk breaks and chats with your coworkers. If you're out running errands, keep them short and sweet. At least running around town keeps your heart rate up and your mind engaged!

April 20-May 20

Your thoughts quicken today. It's easier than usual to make connections between seemingly unrelated pieces of information. That's also called thinking on your feet. You stand to impress people in a business or a social setting if you let your intellect take over. Don't make the mistake of shutting down your own ideas by assuming they're too flimsy! You can ground them in fact later. For now, think quickly and creatively.


May 21-June 21

Stay active today. If you don't keep moving, your nervous energy will catch up with you! You're feeling especially curious, so keep your mind engaged, first and foremost. Challenge yourself with puzzles, word problems and new ideas. Challenging your body is a good idea too: Working off physical energy helps keep the mental chatter to a minimum. You may also be able to problem-solve effectively while walking, jogging or gardening.


June 22-July 22

Today holds great potential for inspiration, if you're willing to tap into it. Your mind is curious and your perspective is keen. You're much more observant than usual, not to mention more attuned to subtle details. This could help you in your work or in tackling a personal project. Just watch out for the current tendency toward nervous energy. If you notice yourself getting fidgety, take a break to centre your energy.


July 23-August 22

It's an excellent day for doing any kind of innovative or creative work. Your mind is functioning at its best. Sure, it might be a little overcrowded with ideas. In fact, it's probably a good idea to keep a pen close by, or a digital voice recorder, so you can keep your thoughts straight. Another way to organise them is to talk them over with someone. Maybe their perspective can actually enhance your own.


August 23-September 22

It's a good day to powwow with your friends or coworkers, rather than trying to tackle a project on your own. Your ideas will be enhanced by the group. Just try not to take it personally if someone takes you to task for some part of your logic that you hadn't realised was flawed. You're operating under some nervous energy now, so avoid snapping at people or rejecting their perspectives out of hand.


September 23-October 22

Your imaginative mind is stimulated today. Strokes of genius might arrive seemingly out of nowhere — lightning bolts of inspiration that make your heart beat faster in excitement! It's a great day to work on a project that could use this creative eye. You're also especially attuned to details, so any work you do will be thorough as well as inventive. If you get stuck on a certain point, get another perspective.


October 23 – November 22

Today your mind gravitates toward complex, intricate concepts. You might be fascinated by details — in fact, maybe a little too much so. You can get something accomplished, but only if you don't get caught up in details that just don't matter. On a similar note, when conversing with someone, don't focus too much on specific words. Look for broader, more general meanings, to avoid getting ensnared in an argument over semantics.


November 23-December 20

Today you might engage in a lot of chitchat but miss out on actual meaning. There may just be too many words obscuring the message! Perhaps you're getting caught up in the small stuff. Or maybe it's the opposite — maybe your broad-view perspective is keeping you from noticing those all-important details. Either way, try to focus on the big picture as well as the many small components that make it up.


December 21-January 19

It's a great day to powwow with colleagues or brainstorm with people who can help you hone your ideas on a project. Just make sure you stay open to their input. Communication is highlighted now, and you'll probably have lots of interaction with other people. Going into a conversation with an open mind is essential, so you can absorb new, innovative concepts you might not have thought of on your own.


January 20-February 18

Today, your appreciation for obscure facts and intriguing figures kicks in. You're making swift, savvy mental connections that may not have occurred to you even a day or two ago. It's easy to multi task. Even if you're stuck doing tedious tasks, you can let your mind wander. You might even surprise yourself with the connections you'll make between seemingly unrelated elements! Soon, you'll want to put these concepts to the test.


February 19-March 20

It's a great day to get inspired. Your mind is sharp, and you're looking at the world with a keen eye. It might be tough to determine which details are worth paying attention to and which don't really require your focus, but the most important thing is simply to keep an inquisitive attitude. Trying to organise new ideas before you're ready can be anxiety provoking, but you don't have to succumb to it!
