Daily horoscopes: May 23, 2016


(March 20 – April 19):

You have zero tolerance for people’s excuses today, but things really are as wild and crazy as they say. They couldn’t make this up if they tried.


(April 20 – May 20):

Say yes! Not only are the terms favorable, but they’re better than you hoped for. It’s unlikely you’ll get a sweeter deal than the one you’re looking at now.


(May 21 – June 20):

You believe in fresh ideas, which is why you’re so popular with young people. Look for them to come flocking to you for support and guidance next week.


(June 21 – July 21):

You’re mortified to learn that you scolded a friend when he was down. Now that you know better, find a way to make it up to him.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Don’t answer before you’ve had enough time to study the rule or clause in question. Someone’s looking to trip you up on a technicality.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

You hate to leave things unresolved, but you’re also realistic enough to know when to leave well enough alone.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

It takes a lot to drive you to the point of no-return and today you’re standing on the brink. This gets a badgering sibling or in-law to back down.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

You know that a friend needs you, but you also know that he’s too proud to ask. Volunteer to help before he breaks under pressure.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

This is not the day to wax poetic because your pursuit of an analogy could lead you to a questionable metaphor. Stick with simple prose.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

A matter that’s been kept under wraps for weeks is unveiled today. Not exactly what you were expecting, but it’s not a deal breaker either.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Sometimes the best way to deal with a squeaky wheel is to apply grease – even if it’s undeserved. It just moves things along.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Make your decision quickly. Don’t linger over memories or what might-have-beens. You’ll be happier keeping things upfront and to the point.
