SHARE Georgia Nicols horoscopes for May 23, 2017

Moon Alert

After 7:45 a.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you are focused on your possessions, assets and cash flow, which is just fine. However, be aware that you have an emotional attachment to what you own today. This can affect your objectivity about financial decisions.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today the Moon is in your sign, which gives you a bit more luck over all the other signs. However, it also makes you more emotional than usual. Nevertheless, this is a good day to ask the universe for a favor because what have you got to lose?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

There is a Jekyll and Hyde affect today for you because, in one way, you are out there flying your colors because the Sun is in your sign. “Hello world!” Meanwhile, however, the Moon is hiding in your chart, which makes you seek privacy. A contradiction.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a good day for a meaningful conversation with a colleague or friend, especially a female. You might want to share or discuss future goals. Quite likely, this conversation will take place with someone younger, or someone you might advise.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a popular time for you! Many of you are in competition with someone, perhaps physically or in sports. Others are in competition at a subtle level. Today, personal details about your private life seem to be public. Hey, this is nothing a Leo cannot handle.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Travel plans will interest you today. Basically, you want to “get away from all this.” Do something that gives you a sense of change and stimulation, even if it’s a small thing. Go someplace you’ve never been before. Talk to people from different backgrounds. Widen your scope in life.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today you will focus on inheritances, insurance, taxes, debt, bills or shared property. This is a good day to attend to these matters and clean up some loose ends. Because travel appeals to you now, it’s wise to get a sense of your assets and your debts. Know what you have.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today the Moon is in a sign that is 180 degrees opposite from your sign, which means you will focus more on close friends and partners. Be careful not to be too emotional about something that someone says. Don’t abandon your logic and your fine mind.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today you want to feel better organized. (Don’t we all?) Set aside 15 or 30 minutes to tidy up things at home or at work so that you feel better. Basically, it’s a headspace. You don’t want to feel out of control. (Do yourself this favor.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a fun-loving, playful day! You might enjoy sports events, the arts, the theater, musical performances, playful activities with children or fun schmoozing with friends. Financial speculation might also appeal. Caution: You’re not the type to play now and pay later.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today you want the comfort of your home and familiar surroundings. A family conversation might be important, especially with a female family relative. You might also be interested in something related to real estate or a family activity. Take some time out just for yourself.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a busy, fast-paced, interesting day. You need to get out and see others, especially to share ideas and thoughts that you have. Time spent with siblings, neighbors and relatives will be meaningful and enjoyable. You want conversations with others to be real, not meaningless chit-chat.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Singer Jewel (1974) shares your birthday today. You are intelligent. You’re a great communicator with a fun-loving sense of humor. You like to make those around you happy. This year you will find yourself more in the background. It is a time for cooperation and building relationships that will benefit you in the future. Because your success lies with interacting with other people — be friendly! Your interactions will be mutually beneficial.
