Today’s horoscope, May 15, 2024: The intersection of the Mercury change

Must read


The crossroads is a place where it’s obvious there’s a choice to be made. But the crossroads are not the only moments of decision. At any time, you can veer off on a secret trail or be the first to step through pristine wilderness. Taking the road is easy, and ease is often well advised, but know that with every step, you are free. You are free.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It feels like you are waiting a long time for what is already supposed to be yours. The sweetest rewards are often the ones that take the longest to be delivered. Tonight, the impossibilities, quite simply, are not.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Confidence isn’t a sudden gift; it’s cultivated through understanding and responding well to your surroundings. You’re working on your master’s degree in social nuance. You’ll adjust your behaviors for different situations to keen effect.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The mistakes show you what you need to work on. They give you direction and purpose. So don’t be afraid to make a few today — without them, life will feel rudderless.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Memories are tricksters today. The bad ones can shape-shift into good or worse. The good ones can take on a taint of bitterness or be dipped in another layer of frosting. The light of today shines context on yesterday.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As intangible and weightless as an idea is, the world can be overturned by but one. You’ll witness the power of a bright thought today, and whether it came from you or not, you’ll be the one to apply it in a direction of impact.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Even though you love to learn, you have preferences about how. Figuring things out on your own is a fun, interesting and complete experience. Listening to someone serve up what they think you ought to know — far less so.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). An obstacle will be cleared. After that, expect to do a bit more maneuvering. Have patience. You’ve waited graciously for this long; it would be a shame to lose your cool in the final moments. You’ll take off very soon.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s confusing when you seem to want things that you do not wish to want. The desire that was once a motivational tool can morph into a philosophical problem that seems like the root of all suffering. Then again, it might be the key to happiness.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A pattern has emerged that tells you that you’ve been influenced more than you’d like. Try and remember what you thought before they got on the scene to sway your mind. Your gut response is golden.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In the early stages of a long journey, the odds favor no one, and yet every stride toward the finish changes the game. You’ll increase your chance of winning with a running leap today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Organizing your belongings will organize your mind. Bright, uncluttered spaces will change the flow of energy through your home and life. The happiness that grows from your spree will seem entirely unrelated to cleaning.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You recognize who feels insecure by their boasting, posing and posturing. It’s not a turnoff, though — in fact, your heart goes out to the under-confident. You get the best out of yourself and others by offering kind attention and acceptance.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 15). The crowd will cheer for you dozens of times this year as your studies and practice pay off. You’ll get into the rooms where decisions are made — and be a part of it. You’ll take the right action, and justice prevails. More highlights: You’ll be shown love in the way you most prefer. Your treasures will go up in value, giving you fun new options. Aries and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 22, 14, 8 and 31.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “With all the things I’ve been through, the No. 1 thing I’ve learned is that we’re supposed to help people through this world,” says Ray Lewis, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest linebackers in NFL history.
