For Thursday, May 18
Those with birthdays today: You flex this year. Often you might need to ease off or do something differently, especially if you hit flak. Knowing when to say enough and reroute your plans helps you achieve your goals. Others look up to you. Your actions set the pace for many around you. Don't let someone who can be hard on you color your days. If you are single, you will head in a new direction or meet someone very different. Don't allow a negative person into your life. If you are attached, your relationship needs special time and attention. Allow your sweetie to have greater say. You both will be happier. AQUARIUS pushes you into the limelight.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
Aries (March 21-April 19)
**** Though you could find that others challenge what you most love or care about, you use the "critique" to tighten up this situation. Bravo! You empower yourself and others. Tonight: Find your pals.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
**** Though saltwater taffy tastes good, it is no fun being pulled in two different directions. You can and need to rise above a tension-laden situation. Tonight: A force to be dealt with.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
***** Reorganize plans as new facts or requests come in. You could be tired and pushed way beyond your limits. The good news is, a walk or some downtime helps you recycle. Tonight: Opt for a mind treat.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
***** You get what you want because of your ability to work with one person well. This person not only provides comfort and security, he or she is a constant source of insight and knowledge. Tonight: Make nice.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
***** Others help shake you out of a negative mood. You need that; don't fight progress! Sometimes taking some time off or being a bit frivolous for even an hour can totally change your mood. Tonight: Accept an invitation.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
**** Pace yourself and get as much done as possible. Dig into your visionary side and open up. New information could make your day float and get you past any problem. Tonight: Get some R and R and maybe a little extra sleep.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
***** You find answers while others spin around helplessly. You think positively and work with others you care about. Conceptualize and realize more of what is important to you. Tonight: Have fun.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
*** Let others present what they want. Listening doesn't mean you agree. Think through other suggestions. You'll anchor in on what is important. Let go of a need to control. Tonight: Say yes.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
***** You might want to stop all the constant chatter. Find a new way of handling communication rather than ignoring the overload. Pace yourself carefully. Tonight: Catch up with a pal. Relax and laugh.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
*** Your finances demand your attention, especially if you are seriously considering a risk. Gambles and emotional and financial risks take on a life of their own. Kick away impulsiveness. Tonight: Treat another person.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
***** Cheer and happiness surround you. Come from a point of security and knowledge. Though impulsiveness often defines you, you might want to slow down and rethink a reaction. Zero in on your objectives. Tonight: As you wish.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
*** Slow down and think before you take action. Pull back and get insight. Gather information. Be positive, even if you unearth a detail or two that might make you uncomfortable. Tonight: Say yes.
