Daily Horoscope for May 15, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino
If Today is Your Birthday
Where do your ideas about relationships come from? Parents and other relatives? Religion? What you learned from movies and TV? It's time to have your very own concept of what a relationship means to you. Left to your own devices, your ideas would be radically different from those of the people and institutions that surround you. You share a birthday with Brian Eno, Madeleine Albright and Emmitt Smith.
Aries (March 20-April 19) -- Part of your professional calling is to be an advocate. That means taking a risk and standing up for unpopular people and causes. You might not succeed, or you might piss somebody off. Therefore, speak out in a way that's eloquent and well planned, using your considerable political skills.

Taurus (April 19-May 20) -- To master any difficult skill or subject matter often requires the use of exemplars: those whose work or ideas we model ourselves after. This is not mere imitation, because one important thing you're modeling is an inner connection to the actual source of your talent or ideas. Get instant access to your Taurus reading.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) -- Take the day and finish any lingering tasks, so they're not hanging over your head, and tie up the loose ends, so you don't trip over them. Soon you're likely to pick up the thread on a high-priority project you had to set aside due to Mercury retrograde shenanigans last month.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -- It's time to reach a wider public with your work, and planetary aspects are perfect for that now. Yet you must go to the world rather than waiting for the world to come to you. Your charm is running at a five-year high. Step up to the microphone and make your announcement.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) -- You have to admit, Central Park was a visionary idea. It actually occurred to some people to set aside a vast piece of land of incalculable value, just so that people would have a common area to live, breathe and hang out. Use this idea as a model for something you're working on today.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) -- Later today, Mercury enters your fellow earth sign Taurus, which will remind you how independent you want to be. Yet what you may actually be seeking is a healthy state of interdependence, though that must start with knowing your own bank balance and having trusted sources of income.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) -- Your home is your true foundation. For as high as you want to reach in the world, you must sink your roots that deep into the Earth. You may be experiencing some hustle and bustle in your relationships these days, though take time to appreciate people for who they are.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) -- You're about to get a clue what's been happening in a relationship, after weeks of pondering and worry. Take a few minutes and see if you can focus a few questions. What exactly have you been wondering? What were the points of confusion? Ask sincerely and you shall have answers.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) -- The goal of any relationship should be about reaching the level of underlying values. That means the actual place where people meet, without making any compromises whatsoever. Yes, it's necessary to bend and flex, though it's more important to know and respect the common ground you stand on.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -- You must have the strength and integrity to hold to your own course in life, even if that means being lonely. Authentic companionship always recognizes who you are, and is not based on what others expect you to be. Today, practice being true to yourself, one decision at a time.
Aquarius Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You may get some of your best thinking and creative time this week in the very early morning hours. If you can remember what you dreamed last night, it will reveal a deeply intimate secret that will help you resolve some fear or sense of guilt. The moment you remember, write it down.

Pisces Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Today Mercury enters the communication sector of your chart, which rather boldly favors writing projects and also anything that involves using your voice. Speak up, get your written words into coherent form, and remember that beauty is a form of truth. Eric recently completed your Pisces reading. Get instant access!
