Horoscope: May 21, 2018
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY
You’re inquisitive, so never short of good ideas, places to go or people to meet. However, you’re struggling with certain puzzling issues or perplexing relationships. It seems that every time you think you’ve found a solution, there’s yet another problem. Actually, in many cases this is only part of the cycle of change that you and everybody else are facing. Knowing that, instead of struggling to find the perfect solution, you’ll regard this as an ongoing process of exploration and discovery.
Aries March 20 – April 19
After a lengthy period during which your ruler Mars accented pivotal matters involving the structure of your life, you’ve dealt with and decided about a wide range of situations. However, a few remain uncertain. Now that Mars’s position has shifted, you’re urged to deal with any remaining issues, and as swiftly as possible.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Although the Taurus New Moon took place a week ago, you’re probably still juggling the unexpected events, ideas and offers it triggered. While you may feel it’s urgent that you get things going, for now focus on exploring your options, ideally with those who’d be involved in the plans or pursuits in question.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
Last week both the inventive Uranus and your ruler Mercury moved into the most reflective and strategic portion of your chart. Since you’re already reviewing a number of perplexing issues, expect one or two more to arise over the coming days. While challenging, what you learn will more than justify the effort involved.
Cancer June 21 – July 21
Few things are more pleasing than having turned a tricky situation into a plan that looks like it will work, and for everybody concerned. However, with so much still in transition, you’ll undoubtedly need to rethink what you have in mind. Actually, you’ll probably need to make a series of changes.
Leo July 22 – August 22
On 20 April, your ruler the Sun moved into the most decisive angle of your chart. Since then, you’ve explored a wide range of options, and taken a few seriously, and even committed to some. However, several remain to be discussed. Begin those discussions now, before events make those decisions for you.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
True, you’re inquisitive by nature. However, with your ruler Mercury and Uranus, which accents breakthroughs, both triggering changes in circumstances, it’s time to broaden your horizons. While this may mean venturing into unfamiliar territory, at minimum, you’ll learn something. And what you learn won’t just be interesting, it could change your life.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Your ruling planet Venus may have moved into the most decisive angle of your chart, but you needn’t commit to anything, still less make lasting plans, just yet. Actually, for now, you’re better off considering what needs to change, if not go. That will make those decisions a lot easier.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
It takes the dynamic Mars two years to move through the chart, and consequently its arrival to accent the structure of your life is bound to raise important questions. For now, explore them all. While you’ll have to make decisions eventually, Mars remains there until mid-August, so you’ve plenty of time.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 20
Even with your high tolerance for sudden changes and chaos, you’ll undoubtedly have struggled with the rapid pace and extent of recent developments. What’s more, things are unlikely to settle down this week. The good news, however, is that even what’s least expected will turn out brilliantly, at least for you.
Capricorn December 21 – January 19
As a Capricorn and somebody born under what is perhaps the most responsible sign of the zodiac, you’ve felt uneasy about the impact of this cycle of rapid change. While you’ve dealt with most events swiftly, you’re aware of and worried that others are less confident. Discuss this. You can probably give them a hand.
Aquarius January 20 – February 17
You’ve just begun a period of dynamic change. Because your ruling planet, Uranus, moves into a new position and zodiac sign, only every seven years, its shift into the down to earth Taurus and to accent the structure of your life, on the 15th, has kick-started an exciting cycle of exploration and growth.
Pisces February 18 – March 19
While the Sun’s move to accent the structure of your life may give you the urge to organise things if not making lasting decisions, the more flexible your attitude, the better. The trick is to make plans but to ensure that as this week’s inevitable twists and turns arise, you can ride them out easily.
