Your daily love horoscope for May 17, 2023

Don’t take your blessings for granted today when privileged Jupiter faces off against destructive Pluto. You’re blessed with a great partner and supportive loved ones, but you’re unable to see their worth and how lucky you are to have them. You might even feel entitled to have them. This can make you lazy and ignorant of their needs. But if you don’t give them the appreciation and respect they deserve, they will inevitably leave, and you’ll end up alone. Letting yourself acknowledge your privilege to have such incredible people in your life can help you learn what you need to do to give them back the love you receive.

To learn how you can do this with the universe’s guidance today, read more below.


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries, you’ve recently met someone who makes you want to be a better person, but your circle is a bad influence to you. You know which behaviors need changing, but you can’t help but relapse every time you spend time with them. It’s frustrating, both for you and your partner, but you don’t know what to do. I’ll tell you what: the problem is that you need to find better friends, Aries. You deserve people who will bring out the best in you, not the worst.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, a new love will come your way today that brings mixed emotions. The prospect of new romance is exciting, but you also like stability and control. You’ll find yourself trying to control these new feelings in order to feel some semblance of power in these uncharted territories, and you will find yourself frustrated in the end when you’re not able to do that. Know that the best things in life are often unscripted and spontaneous, Taurus. Let yourself go, and you will learn that it’s the mystery of life that makes it exciting. 


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You’re in the self-development chapter of your life today, Gemini, and this will bring new learnings that might change your beliefs about love and life in general. Because of this, you will need to confront yourself, your mistakes in your past relationships, and your unhealthy patterns that might’ve contributed to their eventual end. All of this scares you, and you really just want to run away and retreat in the safety of your ignorance. It’s normal to feel afraid, Gemini, but you mustn’t run away. The only way out is through, so trust that the pain and hardships will be worth it in the end.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer, you’ve met someone who is teaching you what love is and you’re eager to learn, but lately, you’ve been feeling desirous of spending time in solitude even more than you usually do. You want to explore the depths of your psyche, your moods and tendencies, your patterns and behavior…but your mind is torn between forging a connection with this person or forging a connection with your soul. Let yourself come to the realization that these two aspects of your life are two ends of the same string. When you see the connection, you wouldn’t have to choose.


Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leo, you find yourself wanting more freedom and control in your relationship, but these needs clash directly against your partner’s. You’re stumped thinking about how to reconcile them, even wondering if you’re better off alone. Know that relationships require work. Leo. They’re not always easy. They don’t show the difficult, boring parts in the movies, but you must live it nonetheless. Otherwise, you have to be fine living a lifetime with half a heart.


Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You’re eager to learn about your special someone today, Virgo, and it will sting when your advances are rejected. You’re desperate to get to know them, to love them and be loved by them and it makes you feel like it’s your personal failure when you don’t get the love that you want. Learning how to deal with rejection is an integral part of your personal growth, Virgo. Seeking the guidance of a trusted advisor, such as a therapist, can help you learn that often, being rejected has nothing to do with you and more about the other person.


Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You’re known for being fair, Libra, and as usual, you will want to compromise and avoid conflict today. However, often, conflict is inevitable, especially in romantic relationships. You and your partner will have different needs, and your desire not to devolve into conflict will make you want to give more and more of yourself until you have nothing left just to satisfy them. There’s a big difference between meeting halfway and giving everything you have just to satisfy your partner, Libra. You need to look after yourself, too, even when you’re in a relationship. 


Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

You will want to commit to a romantic relationship today, Scorpio, but you will also tend to overthink this decision. Do you really know, in your heart, that you love them enough to commit? Or is it just a desire for attention and affection that your parents were never able to give? Self-reflection is good, but not when you drive yourself insane to the point of indecision. If you’ve weighed all the pros and cons and still find yourself unsure, perhaps it’s time to pause your thinking for a while and listen to your intuition. 


Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) 

Your health comes to the forefront today, Sagittarius, and this makes you put a prime on the way you love and live your life. Have you been impulsive with romantic partners in the past? Have you made several decisions without thinking and it always bit you back in the ass? Looking back can help you plot your steps moving forward, archer, so make sure you learn from your past mistakes and it won’t be for naught.


Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) 

You’re not the fun-loving type, Capricorn, but today, you wonder if you’re missing out. You find your friends indulging and jumping into romantic relationships without thinking, and part of you is jealous of how easily they make decisions. Snap out of it, Cap. Sure, you could use a little bit of spontaneity, but would you really want your heart broken month after month because you always commit to the wrong person? You know you’re better than that.


Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius, you’re happy in your personal relationships right now, and maybe you’ve even found someone who feels like home. In fact, things are going so well that you find yourself thinking if this is just the calm before the storm. What if tomorrow, something bad happens and it breaks your family apart? Let yourself believe you deserve good things, Aquarius. Maybe this time you actually have people in your life who are good for you.


Pisces (February 19 – March 20) 

Pisces, today you’ll find yourself saying the right thing at the right time. It can make your friends feel closer to you, and if you’re in a relationship, it can make your partner fall deeper in love with you. There’s a catch, however: if you don’t take the time to learn this seemingly magical thing about you, soon it will fizzle out. Take the time to self-reflect and strengthen your psychic skills, and this will not be the last day your relationships will improve because of your wonderful words and deep empathy.
