Horoscope: May 18
Aries (March 21-April 19): You may not be able to avoid confrontation, but with your honest and direct approach, you can make it relatively painless.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Juggle, march, draw or dance. These activities build right-brain to left-brain communication. There’s nothing you can’t do once you get both hemispheres working together.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): You’ll slip into a positive state this morning and stay there all day long.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): The task at hand will be challenging. It doesn’t all have to be accomplished in one day, though.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You know that you are capable of greater things. Practice is key. Be diligent.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This will be a highly productive day. You’ll start out strong and finish even stronger. Get a cheerleader to motivate you through the middle.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You’ll do your best with many people around. You need to bounce your ideas off of different characters. The response will lead to improved ideas.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): The one who sees you as a tower of strength will open up and show a vulnerable side. You’ll be a comfort and give practical help in ways that will surprise you both.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll have luck with joint ventures. You trust the other person, but you both need to understand what you’re agreeing on. Put details on paper.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ve picked up a few habits from those you admire. Soon these behaviors will be so automatic they’ll feel like a natural part of you.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your imagination is vivid. The lines between what is real and unreal are blurred.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You’re trying to do a job well, though it’s not as easy as you once thought. Stop trying to be good at it. The freedom will liberate you from mental blocks.
Today’s birthday (May 18): You’ll enjoy improved vitality as you moderate vices and add zesty habits. Home will be a place of peace, and, after June renovations, beauty. Meetings in July are life-changers. There’s a reason to travel in August. You’ll close a deal in September. Cancer and Aquarius adore you. Lucky numbers are 7, 38, 28, 31 and 2.
