Horoscopes: Sunday, May 21, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The cliche is true; these really are the good old days. The same grimy bits of life that you'll feel inclined to complain about today will be looked back on with fondness.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Though taking the so-called high road usually results in bringing levity to the situation, ironically that road is often found by way of digging deep down inside yourself for the greater wells of patience and humility.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Only one person should be in charge right now, and that person is you. A sense of personal control is more important to your contentment than many other factors, including financial ones.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The way you're greeted makes a huge difference in how quickly you can settle in to a situation and get to work. By the same token, you will be careful to give others the emotional warmth they need to feel comfortable.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll feel attractive, and people will definitely be attracted to you. Note that if you didn't feel attractive, you would still have admirers, only you wouldn't really notice them.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Surprise! Let's hope you'll enjoy the thrill of experiencing what you couldn't have anticipated, but if you don't exactly, at least you'll appreciate the novelty of it and get a lasting memory out of the deal.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Getting to the goal will not be nearly so complicated as your mind will try to make it. The most important step is right up top: Decide what you're going to do and when you're going to do it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Nothing is guaranteed. The great prizes are for those who are willing to take the great risks. The best prizes of all will have to do with domestic life and relationships.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone who wronged you was, believe it or not, doing his or her very best. Anyway, it's over. You may have to remind yourself of that gently - or distract yourself aggressively - in the name of moving on.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Oh, the games people will play! You'll have an advantage if you detach from this so you can rise above the situation and form a strategy instead of reacting to the play-by-play.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your need to project yourself into the things around you will be amplified. It's as though your reach cannot stay confined to what you can actually reach; rather, the imprint of your spirit will brush against everything you touch.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Maybe you don't need to do anything differently at all except to get more rest and do less for a few days. It will amaze you how wonderful you can feel after a little peace, quiet and downtime.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 21). Your success secret: big aims and small plans. There's a sense of forward movement through the entire solar return; progress in any area brings you forward in others, even if it's not immediately apparent. July and September will bring financial gains you can reinvest for a bigger payoff in December. Libra and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 45, 20, 19 and 38.
