Your Starsign

Taurus

April 21 - May 20


Today's Horoscope for Sunday May 19th

Neptune around in the sign after your mid heaven may be casting a smokescreen of confusion over your future plans. You won't want to commit yourself to one scheme, in case something better turns up round the next corner. But if you keep dithering and delaying, you could miss good opportunities for lack of a little resolution. What is positive is that whoever comes into contact with you will find they feel better from the encounter. You may think you are being kind but you will have a healing quality.



The Weekly Outlook from 13th May

There will be surprises in relationships, which you will cope with better if you expect the unexpected. Treat whatever happens as a positive challenge and an adventure, not a threat. If you cling on, or partners cling on too firmly, too possessively, a restless energy will break free. Go your own independent way for a day or so. After midweek you'll be confident, optimistic, bright, breezy and bouncy with lucky, enthusiastic Jupiter in your own sign.

Your Monthly Horoscope for May

Not everything will progress at the speed you might like, but with your birthday Sun, Venus and Jupiter in your own sign plus Mercury from midmonth, you will feel blessed by celestial gifts. Your morale and confidence will soar with new admirers attracted by your charm and sparkling personality. You'll make an effort to spruce up your appearance to good effect. You know that finding a path in life that brings a deeper meaning and purpose is one priority and that may not come quickly. Keep asking yourself the questions and the answers will eventually come. In the meantime you will be sensitive to being pushed around or crowded by anyone so give yourself space. A pet project may be temporarily blocked or on a go slow, so use the time wisely to go back to the drawing board and improve your plans. Then when the time comes and the red lights turn to green you will be in a better position to get the results you want. A triumph around the 18th will keep you smiling and in the final ten days you will be looking to improve your finances.

and Next Month's Horoscope for June

For once you'll feel comfortably in control of your destiny and direction in life at least for a day or two as the month starts. Good news on the cash front and a surprise turn of good fortune in your favour will put a sparkle in your eye. You'll spend the first three weeks aiming to find a balance between your temptation to spend, spend, spend and your equally strong impulse to boost your security. Mars moving into your own sign after the 9th will bring to an end a stuck few weeks when you could not be as pro-active as you would wish. Now with the red lights turned to green, you will be forging ahead, sweeping obstacles and slow coaches to one side. You may hit a difficulty or two for a few days so will need to aim for ingenuity not force to clear away problems. After midmonth thoughtful gestures from everyday companions at work and in the neighbourhood will make you aware of how popular and appreciated you are. In the final ten days you'll be racing around, talking constantly and rarely bored.

Year Ahead 2024

2024 will be your year for getting a grip and ensuring you can steer your own ship through whichever canal you choose to travel. Admittedly you may have to confront some resistance from companions who are not on your wavelength but being an enduring and, dare I say it, stubborn sign you are unlikely to be distracted. You may not instantly fall on the best solution to your demand for a meaningful way of life in terms of work and direction, so you will need to persevere. Try, try, try again and if one option does not produce results, cut your losses and try an alternative. There may be the odd standoff about who has the upper hand and the last word, so you will be better to adopt a new approach, more persuasive than forceful. Whatever else happens your optimism and enthusiasm will stay intact since you know luck is behind you. From June onwards more money will come your way to allow for treats in the months ahead. Though if you go wild spending you may not save much of your good fortune. The Eclipses will focus your attention on finding a balance between hard work and relaxation. All duty and not enough quality time for yourself to wind down and reflect won't produce optimum results. Continuing on from last year, you will be hanging on to old, tried and trusted friends and finding your circle smaller than before. As the year closes you will be aware that you have settled into a better gear, with fewer questions and more answers firmly in place.
