Horoscope for May 19, 2016

ARIES: You may not manage to get everything your own way, but will have to negotiate a little to get fairer agreements. Stand steady until you reach a sensible compromise, then let go. Briefly, you suddenly lose all thought of being superficial or frivolous. There will be points in the day when you want to get down into the depths to investigate, to stand steady until you find long-term answers, maybe to do with financial or emotional matters or more fundamental questions you are asking yourself.
TAURUS: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time of contradictions since you’ll be enthusiastic, outgoing and popular some of the time. At others you’ll be wrestling in private with confidential tangles, financial and emotional. You will be thrown back on your own resources, having to carry heavier responsibilities, but your experiences will leave you stronger and more capable. In the final four months you’ll find more support at work and be healthier.
GEMINI: This is a couple of days when other people demand a lot of you. You have to go out of your way to make sure that everyone is well looked after. If you feel emotionally squashed because of that, give yourself a few tiny treats through the day. You may find that your emotional state could affect your physical well being, so you need to look to the state of your heart as well as looking after your body. Finding the right food is important.
CANCER: You will find it difficult to conceal your feelings, so your spontaneous, playful, rather dramatic whims will be on display. You need to be noticed now. Expressing your feelings and putting emotions into words will prove less of a problem than usual. Watch you are not putting on too much style, speaking more for effect than content. You’ll be flirting, laughing, singing and dancing. There will be more emotional depth in relationships with loved ones, whether they’re children, adults or indeed social companions.
LEO: Even if you are on your own for a while, it won’t bother you much because the Moon’s position today is a hint to cool down, calm down and get away from hassle, hustle and aggravation. You don’t want to be overwhelmed by the things of the outside world. You may be taking other people’s comments too personally, fearing slights where none were intended. You are more sensitive and moody than usual, so you will want to retreat into your shell if arguments flare up.
VIRGO: You’ll find at points today the words spill out all over the place and other people may get flooded by all your words and miss out on the sense. Once in a while you have to stand back and try to come to a few conclusions before you leap back out again. You may not always make quite as much sense as you think since you are speaking in a rather emotional way. Others respect your sincerity, because they know your heart is in the right place.
LIBRA: Sort out your priorities and decide what really is of value to you. With the Moon around in Scorpio, you might be tempted to think that money is the only thing that matters. But there are other things, which hold every bit as much interest for you, and can lift your spirits when you are feeling low.rnIf your finances are not in order and protected, you will feel very edgy and vulnerable. You will want to save on the one hand, and spend on the other.
SCORPIO: In a restless mood, you’ll be ebbing and flowing like the tide, which is why you need really solid, motherly mates around to be protective, nurturing and a little bit more practical than perhaps you feel. You will be sensitive to the undercurrents in the emotional atmosphere which does make you more sympathetic but it can also make you feel jangled or just confused at times. When you stand still, you will be good at giving reassuring support.
SAGITTARIUS: Close companions seem to be on a different agenda. If you trail after them looking for support, you’ll only end up pulled into things which do not interest you. You may feel a little bit discouraged or low in self-esteem, but there’s really no need for it. Don’t assume that being left to your own devices is a bad thing, or a sign that you are unlovable. Treat it as a blessing in disguise, to give yourself emotionally, at any rate a little bit of space.
CAPRICORN: It’s important to get the right kind of emotional contact with friends and other people, partly for affectionate support, partly because you want to bounce ideas off them. This is your time to set the agenda for the next month and whoever is around can help you sort out your options. However, your concentration is wandering a little at the moment, and you are getting bored with having to listen to feedback. You may say things that startle other people to amuse yourself. scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: If you want more prominence, you’re going to have to do things that draw other people’s attention to you. So do what suits the influential people at work or out in your community. Cater for their needs, not your own. Be caring and kindly and you will get the compliments you desire. The right people are very impressed with your wit, wisdom, flow of ideas and articulate way of expressing yourself. So keep talking and be as bold as you please.
PISCES: In a restless mood, you want to be anywhere other than where you are. But if you are stuck in the one place, go talk to more adventurous people, even find some stretching book to read. You really can’t be bothered with practical routines. You are in a highly tolerant, expansive and enthusiastic mood at the moment and expressing yourself confidently. Mates are finding you inspiring though at times you are promising more than you can deliver.
