If Your Birthday Is May 30

Actress Rachael Stirling (1977) shares your birthday. You need a lot of freedom and independence. Routine is not for you. However, you can do things fast and with skill! Go slowly this year. There is something important to learn. The first half of this year will seem slow; but soon, your efforts of the past six years will start to show results! Get out into nature this year.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Because the Sun and Mercury are aligned in the part of your chart that is all about communications, you will speak forcefully to everyone. That makes this a strong day for those who sell, market, teach, act or write. You are PowerPoint on steroids!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You’re full of money-making ideas, but more than that, in all your discussions about financial matters — you will be forthright and convincing. Of course, you’re never casual about money. Use this to your advantage if you get a chance.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today the Sun and your ruler Mercury are aligned in your sign. This is why you will have lots of conversations with others. You will be an active agent, initiating things, especially to wrap up old matters or deal with people from your past.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Any kind of research will go well for you because you are motivated and primed to go for the jugular. Nothing will escape you. If you’re seeking answers to old solutions, be confident you can find them. Others might ask for your advice.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you will be forceful and articulate in all your communications to others, especially friends in groups. Don’t leave home without your megaphone. People will listen to you and follow your bidding. You can inspire others and be a true cheerleader.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Conversations with people in authority will be powerful. Others will listen to you. However, you might also attract someone to you who is equally articulate, which means you will have vibrant, dynamic conversations with bosses, parents and perhaps, even the police.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a fabulous day to study anything new, but it’s even a better day to study history or something from the past. It’s also a great day to wrap up writing projects — your thesis, your book or any important paper you have been working on. You might also finalize old plans.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You have no trouble defending your own best interests in discussions about shared property and inheritances. You know what you want, which is half the battle. But more than that, you will be persuasive and articulate because you speak with confidence.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a good day to clear up difficulties with others, especially partners and close friends. Because you’re intellectually stimulated, you will generate spirited debate with someone. You will love mental encounters that flirt with controversy. After all, you’re the philosopher of the zodiac.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a great day for any kind of mental work because you will be attentive to details. In particular, you can wrap up projects that are in the planning because everything will easily fall into place. You might also focus on health issues for some reason, which is a good thing because you are a long-lived sign.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a playful, fun-loving creative day! You are definitely in prankster mode. Enjoy puzzles and games and fun times with children. You want to use your mind for amusing diversions and social discussions with others. This is a good day to teach children.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You will give lots of thought to issues from the past, especially regarding your family. In fact, a discussion with a parent could be significant. If you have to settle old matters, your words will be decisive and to the point — like a hot knife cutting through butter.
