SHARE Horoscope for Tuesday, May 18, 2021

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Leo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your kids might be more of a handful because they’re a bit rebellious. Nevertheless, be vigilant because this is also an accident-prone day for your kids, as well as an accident-prone day for sports in general. A social event might be cancelled or — you might receive a surprise invitation. Go figure.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Something will interrupt your home routine today. Let’s hope it’s not a broken appliance. (Happened to me.) It could be a minor breakage or someone unexpected might knock on your door. Something will be different. Get dressed.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Be careful and be mindful because this is an accident-prone day for your sign. We’re talking verbal accidents or physical accidents because something unexpected will change your daily routine. On the upside, new ideas, new faces and new places might be stimulating. (Hopefully not a hospital.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are never casual about money, which means it is in your best interests to keep your eyes open because something unexpected will affect your cash flow, earnings, or possessions. You might find money; you might lose money. Perhaps something you own will be damaged or lost? Forewarned is forearmed.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The moon is in your sign at odds with unpredictable Uranus, which can make you hasty, impulsive, careless and quick to jump to conclusions. (Yikes!) No matter what you do today, you’ll have a strong craving for excitement. (Don’t do anything you will regret.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a restless day for you. You feel vaguely distracted by something, and you might not even know what it is. (Or you might know.) Fortunately, this is a fleeting influence that will pass quickly. Tomorrow is a solid day with a brief moon alert midday. Relax.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

A friend might surprise you by saying or doing something you least expect. Or possibly, you will encounter someone new who is unusual in some way — avant-garde or Bohemian? (Or maybe you are Bohemian and they are conservative?) It’s all relative.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might have difficulty dealing with a parent, supervisor, boss or the police because authority figures will be a source of surprise for you today. (“Busted!”) If something happens, be cool. Do not be lippy. Never forget the power of courtesy.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Something will surprise you today. For starters, travel plans might be changed or canceled. Alternatively, you might suddenly have to travel when you did not expect to do so. School plans might change along with medical and legal schedules. Stay alert.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be mindful in all your discussions about shared property, taxes, debt, insurance issues and inheritances because something unexpected will affect these areas. Therefore, stay on top of your game so that you don’t lose money. Remember: What the large print giveth, the small print taketh away.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Because you feel so independent today, you might do the exact opposite of what someone suggests, or you might reject what someone says simply because they said it. (By nature, you are a rebel who marches to the beat of your own drum.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today is full of a few surprises. Therefore, be careful with your pet because one of your surprises might be related to your pet. Avoid accidents. Your health might also be the source of a surprise. However, you can expect the unexpected with your job or any work that you do. Computer glitches and problems with technology are likely.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress, comedian, writer, producer Tina Fey (1970) shares your birthday. It’s fortunate that you have high energy because you are multitalented and fascinated by many things. You are compassionate, caring and genuinely interested in others. You are both practical and impulsive. At this stage in your life, you’re entering an entirely new cycle. It is a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. Open any door!
