Here's your horoscope for Thursday, May 16

After yesterday's intense planetary clash, the stars gave us a relatively peaceful chance to get our bearings. The Moon spends the day in delicate and sensible Virgo, making it a good time to prioritize your health and think through the logical details of any disagreements that arose earlier in the week.

The Moon's awkward relationship with moody Mars in the late afternoon and early evening can make it difficult to act on our emotions effectively. So if you feel weird about something, try distracting yourself. By night, this feeling will likely disappear without a second thought.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Take it easy today. Trying too hard for too long will only cause you to eventually fall backwards. Find a balance between fulfilling your responsibilities and taking care of your mind, body and spirit.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Ditch the stress of earlier in the week and prioritize having a little fun. Making time for a creative project or arranging a sweet date night with that special someone is just the pick-me-up you need.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

What are some small things you can do to make your living space feel more like home? Tackle a low-key home improvement project or light some incense to purify your place of any lingering unwanted energy.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Is there someone who needs your opinion or a misunderstanding that needs to be corrected? Put your sensitivity and compassion into words. Talking about dark feelings can bring a lot of clarity.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

After the chaotic storm of midweek, it's time to find some footing. Focus on the things you can control today and surrender to the things you can’t. Commit to tangible goals and projects to steady your nerves.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Take a deep breath, enjoy a moment of zen, and transcend the crap from earlier in the week. Your health is much more important than all these little setbacks. How can you put yourself first today?

Libra (September 23-October 22)

There are many ways to recover after a busy period, but in your current situation, a good old-fashioned rest is the best medicine. If you can, take your time and make getting a good night's sleep a priority.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)

Get off your island today and get back to your social life. Your friends can offer you some healing perspective and advice about what's going on today, and just feeling a greater sense of community will do wonders for your soul.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

How can you better manage your time at work now? Organize your career goals today and focus on ways to channel productive energy.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Revolutionize your beliefs today. There is no one "right way" and opinions can always change. Try looking at things from a different perspective today—you might be surprised by what you see.

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

What do you need to feel safe? It's easy to forget the importance of boundaries when things are going well, but when things get tough, you'll be glad you have a clear understanding of your boundaries.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Relationships should always be a source of strength and support. Especially today, take some time to appreciate those who consistently fit that bill. Show your ride or die that you care by offering help or just reaching out to say hello.
