If Your Birthday Is May 19

Author Jodi Picoult (1966) shares your birthday. You are a natural leader, and many of you are also self-taught. You have charisma and an ability to convince others of your course of action. This is the year you have been waiting for. It’s a time of expansion and great activity. Take advantage of opportunities. A major change might take place, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2006. It’s time to try your wings!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a creative day for you mentally, verbally and working with your hands, as well. You are super enthusiastic about something; in part, because you’re surprised. Something has just opened up new possibilities for you, and the sky is the limit.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is an excellent day for business and commerce except that it is also a Moon Alert day. Very tricky! Stay in touch with the parameters of the Moon Alert and get as much done as possible. Later, do your homework and line things up so that you can act tomorrow.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The Moon is in your sign dancing with lucky Jupiter and unpredictable Uranus. This is why you feel enthusiastic, optimistic and excited about something. Quite likely, something unexpected occurred that makes your heart leap with joy. Could be anything!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You have lots of feelings and emotions because something unexpected might have occurred or will occur. Quite likely, it relates to earnings, your job, and how you are perceived by someone in a position of authority. You might have more freedom in the future.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

A female friend might surprise you with suggestions about travel or anything that can expand your world. Stay light on your feet so that you are flexible enough to go with the flow. Check with the Moon Alert before you agree to anything important.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

People, especially people in authority, might be surprised to learn something unusual about you. It could be related to sudden increase in wealth or a change in your relationship to shared property. Or it might be a secret that no one was aware of.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Sudden opportunities to travel might delight you. Others might be equally as pleased to hear good news related to higher education, further training, publishing, the media, medicine and the law. Something out of the blue will make your day!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This can be a fortunate day for you. You might come out ahead in dealings about shared property, inheritances or anything regarding shared resources and debt. Whatever happens will probably surprise you; but you will be pleased. Stay in touch with the Moon Alert.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A partner or close friend will surprise you, hopefully, with upbeat, pleasant news! Or possibly, you will meet someone who is unusual and stimulating. This could relate to travel possibilities or encountering someone who has traveled to see you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Expect some pleasant surprises at work. A co-worker, probably a female, might have unusual news. You might get a promotion or a transfer or news that pleases you about your job. Whatever happens will make you feel more independent and will increase your freedom.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Love at first sight might occur for some of you. Others will be delighted by the possibility of a social outing or a success in the arts or a sudden vacation. Sports events, playful activities with children and romance are full of surprises for you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Something will happen that pleases you and it will be connected with your home, your family or even a real estate deal. If it concerns real estate or something where you have to sign on the dotted line, be aware of the Moon Alert. This is a great day to entertain at home because you have something to celebrate.
