HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, May 18, 2017:
This year you have professional offers or opportunities come forward. Some of you might decide to start your own business, whereas others are likely to get a pay raise or promotion. Use your insights well, even if you choose not to share them. If you are single, you could attract an offbeat type of person. While this bond might be fun, make sure that it’s what you want for the long term. If you are attached, the two of you will become more adventuresome together. Do not get discouraged, should your sweetie become somewhat withdrawn; be loving and accepting. PISCES can be a hoot to go out with.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Your energy might be focused on a friendship or a long-term desire. You could feel as if everything is heading in the direction you want it to go, only to discover otherwise. Do not lose sight of your goal, should this scenario become a reality. Tonight: Where your friends are.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You have been experiencing a lot of fast changes that have had a strong effect on you. It could be that you are not sure of yourself or your choices, at least at the moment. Your ability to see past the obvious gives you a lot of power. Share more of your ideas. Tonight: Say “yes.”
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You could be questioning what is necessary to make a personal situation work for you. Detach, and you’ll figure out a solution that will work best for everyone involved. A friend might say something that triggers even more insight. Tonight: Reach out to a loved one at a distance.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
A partner plays a special role in what occurs. Try to shorten your to-do list, as you could be dragging a bit. Let someone else carry out some of your responsibilities today. Consider taking a power nap; you could be happier as a result. Tonight: Take off for the weekend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Others seem to take the lead, while you can barely get a word in edgewise. How you handle a personal matter could change your mood as well as someone else’s. A child or new love interest seems rather distant, which might be upsetting to you. Tonight: Go with the moment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’ll make an adjustment with ease. A partner or close associate could be creating some uproar, so much so that you can’t seem to distance yourself from this person. Relax rather than get uptight. You will see this situation a lot differently soon. Tonight: Take a long walk.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Your playfulness comes out, and you might discover that some people don’t appreciate it. Be more sensitive to those around you. A loved one could become very explosive if you are not careful. Choose your words with care. Tonight: Consider starting the weekend early.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You could feel as if a personal matter has gotten out of control. You might not want to share the particulars, but others seem to sense what is happening. You could have a lot of nervous energy to release. Take a walk or choose another stress-buster. Tonight: Out late.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
What seems difficult at first could become easy if you ask for some help or support. Many people do this, so don’t allow your pride to interfere with what is happening. A child or loved one is full of surprises; by now, you probably are used to them. Tonight: Seize the moment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You might not be able to deal with a personal matter just yet. Your sense of humour takes you down a new path, which will be quite unexpected. A matter involving your domestic life could create a substantial amount of uproar; try to get it under control. Tonight: Happy at home.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Honour a need to be spontaneous. You often try to be more self-disciplined, but right now it would be best to just go with the moment. A surprise elicits a strong response from you. You even might be taken aback by your own reaction. Tonight: Meet up with friends.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Be more sensitive and direct when dealing with a loved one. You might need to read between the lines in order to understand how to handle a problem. Once you know what the real issue is, it will be a lot easier to handle it successfully. Tonight: Nap first, then go out.
