Horoscope for May 19, 2018


Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Cancer into Leo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Parents need to be vigilant about their kids today because something unexpected will take place at home or within your family. Meanwhile, at the same time, this is an accident-prone day for your kids. Connect the dots. Keep your eyes open. And guard your money and possessions as well.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

An unpredictable day! Your routine will be interrupted. New faces, new places, unusual ideas are all part of the mix. Be patient with family members, especially a female, because you might suddenly be at odds with someone. Cool your jets and keep your eyes open.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Clever, moneymaking ideas might occur to you today. You might suddenly find money or figure out ways to boost your earnings. Admittedly, something might impact your cash flow as well as a loss, but this is doubtful. Avoid arguments with siblings. Pay attention to everything you say and do. (Avoid accidents.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you feel impulsive and ready for adventure. Quite likely, something unusual will occur that allows you to explore new ideas or meet new people. Definitely something “different” will occur today. Meanwhile, keep an eye on your money and your possessions.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Things are a bit unpredictable today. Unusual things are occurring. This is one of the reasons you feel restless. It’s also as if there’s lots of energy or electricity in the air. (Weird.) A boss or parent might also say or do something you least expect. Be cool.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might meet someone today who is different and exciting. Possibly, a friend you know will do something that amazes you. Meanwhile, travel plans might change. Expect detours and interruptions. Quarrels with work colleagues might also erupt. Yikes! Stay chill.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

A boss or a parent might do a favor for you today, something unexpected. Or you might get some great press in the eyes of others. However, a quarrel with a female friend, especially about shared property, might take place. This might also involve one of your kids. Easy does it.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

A sudden opportunity to travel, take a course or get further training might drop in your lap today. Act fast because this window of opportunity is brief. Meanwhile, a parent or boss might be at odds with you for some reason. Could someone at home be jealous of your sudden good fortune?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Keep your pockets open because unexpected gifts, goodies and favors from others will come your way today. Just say yes! And be fast about it because this offer is short-lived. Avoid conversations about politics, religion and touchy issues.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A partner or close friend might benefit you. Someone might invite you to a pleasant social occasion. An unexpected date might delight! However, disputes about shared property or inheritances or something to do with your kids might also arise. Oh well.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Something unexpected related to your work might occur today. (A surprise related to your health or even a pet might also occur.) Likely, it’s good news. Nevertheless, you are at odds with someone today — perhaps a female friend. Patience is the key for you today.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Grab your dancing shoes because an unexpected invite to a fun event could be thrilling. Surprise romance is possible. Unexpected news related to your kids is also likely. Amidst all this activity, avoid arguments with a female co-worker.
