Your Daily Horoscope for Thursday, May 10

Aries

March 21- April 19

Mild friction at work or with your sweetheart makes your day that much more interesting. If you're up against a colleague, you'll make your case with energy and spirit. If it's your spouse on the other side of the issue, be sure to listen as actively as you speak. There's room for everyone, and you can set a positive tone for the whole interaction. Your energy and proactive example can be very motivating to others.

Taurus

April 20-May 20

Even if you're feeling very excited and driven about something in the works, don't push it too hard — not just yet. As counter-intuitive as it may seem, a low-key day now is better than a full, overblown week. Speak quietly and move gently. Let a friend open your eyes to some new source of inspiration. Soon, you'll be even better positioned to reach success, so draw on that famous patience of yours and simply float for a while.

Gemini

May 21-June 21

You're usually carefree and optimistic, or at least wry and sardonic. But today, you're in a lousy mood, and want to be alone. Just don't be rude to the people clueless enough to approach you. They're used to the positive you — maybe they don't realise you're like a lion in a cage, pacing and snarling to yourself. Or maybe they do, and want to reach out. Either way, they have good intentions. Yours should be, too.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

Soft, warm, receptive, compassionate — that's how you're feeling today. You're seeing the world through a haze of sympathy and affection and want to nurture other people, because you know you can. But you've still got your sharp perceptions, and that's a wonderful balance. You'll tackle any projects on your to-do list with inspired energy, rolling up your sleeves and proceeding with joy. Wouldn't it be nice to feel this tuned in and vigorous all the time?

Leo

July 23-August 22

You're full of flowery expression today — you can think up ten different ways to demonstrate the fiery passion that's welling up inside you. In fact, you might be better off on stage, or on canvas, because the real world certainly isn't this artistic. All the more reason to enjoy this mood while it lasts. If people don't share your enthusiasm, don't let it get you down. Just keep doing your thing, and smile whether they applaud or not.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

You've been waffling back and forth on something that just doesn't seem clear. Should you stay or go? One thing is certain — you can't stay this indefinite forever. Instead of worrying over option A or option Z, try focusing on what will actually work in the real world, considering all the limitations in place. That should give you your answer. File everything else under the heading of 'dreams and wishes,' to be revisited at a later date.

Libra

September 23-October 22

Your love of praise and distaste for criticism could have you trying to escape into the denial zone, but rest assured that reality will catch up with you soon. Come out and meet it on your own terms. You'll feel better about yourself if you're brave and honest in admitting your shortcomings. Plus, doing so will inspire people — and the universe — to step up and help you sort things out. You don't have to do this alone.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 22

Walking the line between good and evil has always appealed to you. You like stark contrasts, and the thrill of heights — and you love exploring the depths once you tumble down. Now you should focus on using your versatile powers for good, not evil. You're clearly on the side of the angels today, and that's a pretty sweet position to abandon willingly. Besides, this is your chance to score a few points for your team.

Sagittarius

November 23-December 20

You're feeling a little lost today. You can probably fake it by smiling and glad-handing — you've always been a real people person, after all — but why bother? This confused, slightly melancholy mood is here for a bit, and you'll be too distracted to remember complex stories. It's so much easier to tell the truth — just admit you're a little out of it, and ask a co-worker or classmate to cue you in.

Capricorn

December 21-January 19

If you're feeling a little dreamier than usual and more attuned with the world, don't take it as an excuse to rest! You're feeling strong, and full of sweet, positive energy. You can get a lot done today if you focus and make something important happen. Daydream about a project you'd like to make real, and then write down all your ideas. Above all, stay busy. There's a lot in store for you — reach out and take it.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

Creativity and inspiration are on a slow, steady burn today, making you highly inventive. This is no time to shy away from taking a chance, even with your hard-earned cash. If you feel nervous about the risk, just consider any leaps of faith to be an investment rather than a gamble. You're testing out a theory, and if it doesn't work, you won't have lost all that much, in the grand scheme of things. And you'll certainly have gained knowledge.

Pisces

February 19-March 20

If you've been feeling stuck in a dead-end situation, take heart — at last, there's a way out. Today offers you a unique opportunity to do so. But are you escaping from something old or running toward something new? That question's worth considering, and here's another — are you living on hold or making a fresh start? You already know it's better to start anew than to keep clinging to a status quo that no longer feels right.
