Horoscope for 26th May: Is today your Lucky day?

ARIES:It may be that other people are pushing you around a little bit. Don’t let them. But don’t get pulled into their tactics either. Responding in like manner is only likely to prolong a sticky situation. Use a little subtle ingenuity to find a third way, and then you will be able to smile triumphantly. Happily you are in a common sense mood, showing practical flair and determination. Slow to make up your mind, you will be absolutely unshakeable when your decisions are made.
TAURUS:Nothing lasts for ever in the same form. In nature with the seasons comes new growth, then flowering, then decay, before the cycle starts over. In the same way you need to see what has past its sell by date, and let it go. Your agile, restless mind is coming up with original inspirations at the moment, but you will not always be good at following your ideas through. Maybe you are trying to juggle too many balls in the air at once.
GEMINI:This is the time to make room for the creative changes in your life which really want to happen at the moment. Let go of old patterns of behaviour that have been holding you back. Change is never simple, especially at a psychological level, but you will benefit greatly from abandoning what is not in your best interests. You will be coming up with wonderful ideas, but you may find it difficult to put them into words. Your uncanny intuitions should be accurate.
CANCER:Certain people may be demanding that you do what they want. Trouble is you basically want them to do what you want. So there may be an impasse around, and some anxiety from that. Just be tactful but firm. Maybe you cannot change everything you would like, but you can probably make more of an impression than you imagine by the way you rise to the problem. Get your original ideas out into the world. You can make a difference by what you say.
LEO:If you are willing to learn from life, to be flexible, then you can make significant progress. You need to be secure enough in your identity that you can take feedback from other people. Try to see where you could alter course just a little bit, whether it’s in your behaviour or your attitudes. Then the way ahead will clear quickly. You have a very sharp mind which is capable of grasping ideas and putting them to work at once at the moment.
VIRGO: If you feel blocked and that nothing is budging an inch do not get discouraged. There are powerful pressures working below the surface or behind the scenes, which will allow you to turn your life round very soon. In a few days time on the far side of the Pluto influences you will look back and know that your efforts did make a real difference. Maybe you do want to be absolutely truthful about certain matters now. But don’t get dramatic about it all.
LIBRA:If you demand total control, it may not get you the results you want. Maybe you are absolutely right, but being right does not necessarily mean you win. You will only end up with a stalemate. That would be a real waste of energy. Superficial answers will not do for you at the moment. You want to get right down to the roots of things, and will keep digging and investigating until you find out the answers and solutions which make you feel secure.
SCORPIO:Whatever has become confused or delayed around you needs a sensible strategy to get it rolling again. You may feel puzzled initially about how best to tackle it all but keep persevering and the answers will come. It could even be a good time for house-cleaning, having a grand clear out and re-organisation. Your social party chit-chat is even more sparkling than usual, so you’ll be the general favourite not just with close partners but out amongst your wider circle of friends as well.
SAGITTARIUS: If there are tensions in relationships at work or at home, you will need to find a way out of differences without making your actions too obvious. There’s always a trick in finding a middle way. Not being too submissive, letting other people steamroller over the top of you, or being too pushy yourself. Luckily you’ll have a more practical approach than usual, an appetite for detail and oodles of common sense. Mates may find you a stickler for everything being just so.
CAPRICORN:You are not happy with just taking superficial explanations for anything. You want to get right down to the roots of situations. Although you may feel stuck this is part of a clearing out process, when you need to get rid of inessentials in your life. You will be coming across as strong minded, forceful but always entertaining in your way of expressing yourself. You have a fiery, positive approach to tackling problems and will sweep companions up in your enthusiasms. scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS:Try to wind down rather than get too uptight for a few days. It may take an effort, but staying cheerful in spite of the circumstances around you may just be the easiest way to sail through in good form. Stay calm and serene, and just smile gently if close companions get sulky or too tricky. You will have a more imaginative way of thinking and speaking than usual. This can be useful, since you’re absorbing a good deal of information from your surroundings.

PISCES:Sometimes a joke can break tension or lift everyone’s spirits when they have become slightly obsessed about tricky situations to which there is no obvious answer. If everyone insists on standing firm, then it could end up in one of these unwinnable battles where nobody is willing to give way. You can be quite sharp in your comments at the moment, if you speak before you think. But you can also be tolerant and flexible in your views, when you have time to consider.
