Avoid shopping or major decisions until 5 p.m. After that, the Moon moves from Cancer into Leo.
If Your Birthday Is May 22
Actress Maggie Q (1979) shares your birthday. You tackle big projects because you’re energetic and persistent. You love creative projects, including creating a family. You can be quite insistent about what you want. Good news! This is a year of increase, and perhaps one of the most powerful years of your life. You will reap what you have sown because it’s a time of fruition and a good time to buy and sell.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
At the beginning of the day, you are full of serious plans regarding social occasions, sports events, playful times with kids and romantic getaways. However, late in the day, you might encounter obstacles or something that makes you worry.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Family discussions are solid and practical. However, once you think you have the show on the road, some kind of financial situation will block you. “It’s a great idea — but we can’t afford it.” Or perhaps, “We’ll never get away with it.”
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You’re in a serious frame of mind and ready to look at things with a practical eye. However, someone close to you will likely oppose your plans. “Someone left the cake out in the rain. I don’t think that I can take it because it took so long to bake it.”
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Initially, you will make practical plans about cash flow and money. However, as the day wears on, you will lose confidence. Either you know that you will be blocked, or you sense that a tough challenge is just too tough.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Relationships with others, especially in groups will begin in a solid way but quickly reach an impasse. Someone in a position of authority, or someone who is more experienced than you will stand in your way. At the moment, there’s nothing you can do.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This is a tough day with authority figures. If you make your pitch or ask for approval, their response will be, “Talk to the hand.” Similarly, discussions with parents will be challenging. Just accept this and be polite. Never underestimate the power of courtesy.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Initially, a female companion will offer you practical support today. But later, someone else will interfere with your plans (which might include travel) and everything will be blocked. Don’t push the river. Accept what is happening and be graceful about it. (But take down their names.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Someone might ask you to represent something or lead the way. But as the day wears on, you see that you don’t have the practical support or the resources to do what you had originally hoped to do. Accept defeat and live to fight another day.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
It’s not easy to deal with others today, especially those who are older, more experienced or in a position of authority and power. You will sense this immediately. Even though you have practical ideas, especially related to travel, education, medicine, and the law — it will be hard to be heard.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The best way to handle today’s energy is to just stick to routine work and plow ahead. You have stamina and focus and you can accomplish a lot by just keeping your head down and your powder dry. Don’t expect too much for yourself or anyone else.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Children might be an increased responsibility for some reason, especially as the day wears on. Likewise, sports and social events might also take on more serious tone, one that is heavy and full of responsibility. Keep things as light as you can.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Your day begins with practical ambitions that look doable. However, a family member or someone else in a position of authority might shoot you down in flames. There is no way around this. You are blocked. But you’re not blocked forever — just bide your time.
