Horoscope today: Your daily guide for Friday, May 17, 2024



Aries (March 20 – April 19)

When you believe in something or somebody, you will do all you can to support them. At the moment, however, you are short of facts about what or who you are dealing with. Check out the details. This may seem a distraction, but what you learn will confirm just how necessary investigations of this nature are.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Usually, true good fortune appears unexpectedly and in a form that may seem more of a problem than something you would welcome. That’s the case now. Knowing that, explore everything that comes your way. At the least you’ll learn a lot. However, the odds are good this will lead to a welcome, and timely, breakthrough.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The time has come to say a firm farewell to certain once-thrilling habits. The problem? You are seeking something to replace these. There is a secret, and it is to get others involved, both in discussions and in broadening your horizons. It will be as much fun as it is informative.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You don’t think of yourself as distrusting of others, even if some people have disappointed you so many times you expect them to ignore your concerns. At the moment, however, they are making a real — and surprising — effort. They were inspired by the kindness of somebody else. Enjoy this. It won’t last long.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

It is always easy for others to miss out on your more sentimental side. This comes out only rarely, and often in the company of those who encourage you to dwell on those feelings. For now, however, reveal them to those who are as surprised as they are delighted by this discovery.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Only days ago, you were convinced you had thought certain changes through in detail and were looking forward to rethinking elements of your life, as well. While you have gone into these in depth, be prepared for several surprises, some as timely as they are unexpected.

Your horoscope for the whole of May

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

No sign is better at winning others over to ideas or plans that they initially regarded as unappealing, if not just plain unwise. But now, to your surprise, you are beginning to realise that times have changed, which means these need a rethink. Once you have, you’ll actually enjoy the process.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You don’t really think of yourself as being restless until you get involved with those who are not just rigid in their thinking, they often refuse to discuss changes in arrangements. Annoying as that is in the short term, you will soon be grateful for the freedom you have to explore various options.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

It always surprises you when those around you are upset by the variety of sudden changes in circumstances that you enjoy. However, as a quick-thinking and inquisitive fire sign, twists and turns of this nature aren’t just challenging — in dealing with them, you learn a lot, as is the case now.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

True, you have committed to more plans than you intended to, and are now discovering they are more complex than you thought. Still, you are trying to fit everything in. Try taking another approach. Review all those plans and obligations and decide which should come first and which you should say farewell to.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 17)

Being an inquisitive air sign, you are always interested to hear about what others are up to and, equally, how and why they have decided to rethink certain long-standing plans. Ask them about this, but be cautious about offering advice. Those in question are uneasy and would benefit from your support.

Pisces (February 18 – March 19)

Everybody dreams of ideas, offers or even a magical romance coming out of the blue. While those may appeal to you, think of what else would be as magical. Why? The current planetary setup accents exactly such delightful developments, and the more prepared you are to take advantage of them, the better.

If it’s your birthday on…


On rare and wonderful occasions, there is a cycle that accents growth, superb timing and good luck. That’s exactly what the birthday link between the Sun and the fortunate Jupiter is all about. The secret? Be bold. Take chances on the unfamiliar. The more you explore, the more you will benefit.


You have begun a cycle of breakthroughs. These will range from changes in longstanding arrangements to more recent plans but, equally, it’s about your own, personal, vision for the future. Whatever the case, focus on what you dream of. The more far-reaching your vision, the more you’ll achieve.


It’s time to explore existing ideas, but also those that appear sudden and would lead to timely changes. Equally, note the activities and alliances that no longer suit you. Let them go. Then let destiny show you the route to the exciting encounters and the next chapter of your life.
