April 21 - May 20
Your Birthday Horoscope
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be lively, independent-minded, a time to suit yourself and not be swayed by others' reactions. Which doesn't mean you'll avoid hard work. Duty will keep you tied to the straight and narrow but your rewards will come in praise and recognition so you'll feel your stalwart efforts are worth it. Taking the initiative over money will bring in results where relying on luck won't. Future plans will be tricky to set in gear since you'll chop and change your mind.
Today's Horoscope for Wednesday May 12th
What you need to aim for is creative change, which doesn't mean turning your life into a revolution, but moving as persistently and steadily as you can towards your goals. In the first instance fix your eagle eye on situations that require reorganising. With the right approach you'll pick up details that need to be sorted out which others have missed. This is not the time to be keeping your head in the clouds or ambling along relying on luck to see you through.
The Weekly Outlook from 10th May
In a mood to stir up excitement and give yourself freedom you may be inclined to burn your bridges behind you. Then in a few days, you'll wish you could backtrack. Rein in your reckless streak and all will be well. Friendships will be well-starred from midweek onwards till late July. You'll have a knack for putting others at ease and your happy optimism will make you popular. New companions will be fun but keep a firm grip on old mates, whose loyalty is tried and tested.
Your Monthly Horoscope for May
Now that you're well established on your new track for the year ahead, you'll be full of beans and bounce and keen to get cracking. Your everyday schedule will be extra-busy, varied and rarely boring. Even if you do get impatient with delays, you'll try to keep it to yourself. But the right people won't be in any doubt as to your feelings. Always a sign that appreciates financial security, you'll be talking over cash matters, keen to get the details straight and will then set off to spend since irresistible treats will catch your eye. Jupiter moving into Pisces for a few weeks from the 13th will send your optimism soaring as you look ahead. A wide circle of friends, new and old, will rally round to offer a helping hand, entertaining company and advice. Some information coming your way may err on the side of being too positive so double check for yourself. After midmonth you'll have a sense that recent problems are behind you and you'll be doubly determined to make the most of what comes next.
and Next Month's Horoscope for June
Pulling your personal finances together will be your priority, which will involve not getting distracted by unrealistic advice from friends or plans that haven't a chance of working out yet. You'll be tempted to spend as well as save so finding a balance will be crucial. There will be an aggravating difference of opinion up to the 5th which will slow your progress and no amount of pushing will help. Tolerance and your knack of pouring oil on troubled waters will help. Everyday friends at work or in the neighbourhood will go out of their way to make you feel admired and appreciated. From the 11th you'll be keen to reorganise at home which may not always go down well with loved ones who may object to being pushed around. You'll be hopping from one foot to the other, not clear whether to stick to tried and tested methods or be as rebellious and progressive as you'd like. Striking a happy balance will help. Into the final ten days you'll be making short distance trips and having fun encounters. The mood at home will be harmonious and affectionate.
Year Ahead 2021
Hard work will be inevitable as heavier responsibilities will be landed on you throughout 2021 but you will be rewarded with praise and a boost to your reputation. As long as you stick to the straight and narrow and are conscientious you won't go far wrong. Whatever you attempt should work out better and more easily than you expect. However you will have moments when you want to kick up your heels and please yourself, no matter the consequences. But rocking the boat too much with partners or at work may not bring the results you want. It will, in general, be a roller-coaster year, with sudden changes and some tensions. Which is where your steady unflappable temperament will come in handy. You will be an invaluable help to those around since you'll stay calm and continue to plough the same furrow no matter what sudden changes there are. But even you know that where relationships and money are concerned you will need to share, care, relate and co-operate in a different way. Letting go the habits of a lifetime won't be easy but you will benefit greatly and find greater fulfilment and security if you can manage it. January and February will be problematic months with upheavals and disruptions. You will be powering ahead, not always patient with delays but it won't be easy to stick to a straight course. Your optimism will soar after May for a few months and friends will rally round with enthusiastic support. Your social circle will widen so you won't be short of invitations or good company. At times you'll lack motivation or commitment when it comes to sorting out longer term plans. You'll drift, dither and put off making firm decisions. For the sake of your financial security you'll need to push yourself especially from June onwards. Towards the New Year you'll have reached a significant crossroads in your life and be making up your mind which path to choose ahead. It needs to be your choice and will only be reached after a good deal of reflection.
