Daily Horoscope for May 11, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino
If Today is Your Birthday
Solutions to your most pressing concerns are much closer than you may think. Indeed, it may be that you're searching a bit too far and wide to notice that. You also have more in common with those you perceive as in some way opposite you. If you seek common ground, you will find it; perhaps by random chance, perhaps by design. You share a birthday with Martha Graham, Salvador Dali and Pam Ferris.
Aries (March 20-April 19) -- Make every word you speak and write count. Though we live in a time of fake news and alternative facts, you must hold yourself to the highest standard of your word being your bond. At this point in your life, there's no such thing as a small compromise. Be strong and be truthful. Get instant access to your Aries reading!

Taurus (April 19-May 20) -- Don't push others to tell the truth. Rather, set the example for them, and demonstrate how worthwhile it is to live openly and honestly. In the end, all things are known. Yet before that time, holding things in can cause considerable stress, which is just a waste of energy. Get instant access to your Taurus reading.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) -- You're free to do whatever you want, if you're willing to own up to the consequences. Right now a little more discipline would be helpful; you don't need to push every limit, tempting though it may be. Step back a bit and reflect on what an interesting few weeks it's been.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -- Take your most creative ideas and get busy with them. Getting results is one part inspiration and three parts perspiration, so put down your phone and begin the real work toward your most cherished goal. You have momentum. You have the right idea. Full throttle ahead.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) -- You're gradually approaching a turning point, or moment of decision. Stay ahead of this one, rather than having it imposed on you in any way. You're making a natural transition, though it will help if you open your heart and soul and let people know what you're feeling and experiencing.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) -- You're in a unique position to take a leadership role in your own life. That may be a strange thought, though it's often true that people leave the most important decisions to others. Remember that you don't need permission to do anything, and most of all you don't need to make excuses.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) -- Coming to terms with the truth is a gentle process. It should land on you like a pound of feathers rather than a pound of stone; and it can, if you commit to that approach. First, eliminate what's not real or valid; then look at your remaining options. What you need will be obvious.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) -- It's easy and convenient to tell little white lies about sex. Gradually, though, doing this undermines your confidence in yourself and in your partners. Now is the time to pluck up the courage to be honest with everyone you're intimate with. Courage means coming from the heart; that's about love.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) -- In psychology, there's something called a 'withhold'. Rather than being an outright deception, it's something that you leave out of the conversation. Make a list of everything that you want to say, but have not said, to your most intimate partners. Then think about that list for a day or two.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -- One challenge you're rising to is defining yourself in some way other than the relationship that you're in. You have an identity of your own; as Erica Jong famously wrote, you're a whole person and not half of a couple. Living this out calls for a deep transformation, and you're up for it.
Aquarius Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Before you worry about compromising your principles, you should consider carefully what they really are. Then you can decide whether you need to alter, bend or strengthen them. It's time to be true to yourself and true to others simultaneously. This isn't as hard as it may seem.

Pisces Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Ultimately, your confidence and your sense of security must come from you. All the buttressing and security checkpoints and walls in the world cannot protect you from your own fears. That's a decision you get to make for yourself, and you have the strength and focus to do it now. Eric recently completed your Pisces reading. Get instant access!
