(FRIDAY, 18 MAY 2018)
ARIES (March 21-April 20) – Your financial affairs are not as orderly as they ought to be, so do your best to improve matters. Do not ignore criticism; take it in your stride. Instead of trying to enforce your own views, do listen to what others think and take their views duly into account. TAURUS (April 21-May 20) – .Try not to have too exalted an opinion of yourself; you have just as many faults as do others. Avoid boasting; if you are what you think yourself to be, you will not have to. Do not forget that laziness feeds upon itself; the lazier you are the lazier you will become. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Always show respect for those who deserve it or to whom it is due. You should be more ready to take the rough with the smooth. You will get what is obviously good advice, but it will not be easy for you to accept it. Do not be involved in something that is really no concern of yours. CANCER (June 21-July 20) – Give up if you are battling against hopeless odds, but do make sure they are just that. What you expected will happen but not in the order you had thought. You will have to change your plans accordingly but that will be easier than you anticipated. LEO (July 21-Aug. 20) – Avoid dwelling on past events. Regrets will change nothing and the future will permit you to make amends. A difficulty should be considered to be a challenge and not a barrier. If you see it in that light, you will succeed in overcoming it. VIRGO (Aug 21-Sept. 22) – Try to have a bit of fun, but make sure it is harmless and at no one else’s expense. You will be glad you did not take no for an answer and persevered. Just a little late is far too late, for instance if you have a train or a flight to catch. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) – While at first you will be in some doubt, try not to lose your head and you will soon regain your usual confidence. Something you had least expected will happen and the consequences too will surprise you. However, if you keep calm, you will not come to grief. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) – Always make it a point to face up to the facts even if some of them may be a little unpalatable. Something you had mislaid will turn up, but too late to be as effective as you would have wished. You will be reminded of a promise you had made so make an extra effort to keep it SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) – If you feel depressed because nothing seems to be going right just now, then think of all the things that have. Without any effort on your part, someone who treated you badly will get his desert. Justice has been done so abandon thoughts of revenge. CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) – Saving time is just as important as saving money. Try your best to understand why others do not always agree with you. Some small matters will have to be attended to. However make sure that you do not give them precedence over the more important things that must be done. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Make sure you know your limitations and try to overcome those you know you can. Do not be despondent about your ability to do so, but do not aim too high either. A cherished belief of yours will now prove to be mistaken. Have the broadness of mind no longer to adhere to it. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Allow for the fact that virtually all devices are liable to go wrong and ensure they are properly maintained. You will realize what it is you have been doing wrong, though it may not always be that easy to remedy your error.
