March 21 - April 20
Your Birthday Horoscope
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be speedy and hard-working. Being dutiful and keeping your eye on detail and practicalities will bring you the respect of the right people. Though from mid year you'll need to take time out to focus on family matters, pushing ambitions to one side for a few months. By the New Year you'll be into a successful phase when your enthusiastic plans will begin to show results and praise will come your way.
Today's Horoscope for Thursday April 18th
Your working routines will be speeded up with short distance journeys and a great many stimulating conversations keeping your adrenaline flowing fast. Though in your closest relationships you may be hanging on to partners. Don't get possessive if they aren't exactly fitting in with what you want. Just move over and get in step with them. Relationships always require compromises, and if you can keep your nearest and dearest contented they are more likely to respond in like manner.
The Weekly Outlook from 15th April
Your tastes are running to the flashy and the frivolous so you will be spending gleefully on non-essential items. In three days' time you may wonder why you bought them. If close partners are not entirely on your wavelength, don't stomp off in a huff. Maybe you need to cajole them into fitting in with what you have in mind. Maybe you will have to give in the first instance to get a response, but it will be worth it.
Your Monthly Horoscope for April
Your birthday Sun normally makes you bounce with enthusiasm but this year you'll be weighed down by heavy responsibilities and too much work. So you'll need to pace yourself and balance out duty with personal space for pleasure. Mistakes may surface which need to be faced, a solution found and then fixed before you'll be able to speed ahead. Being confrontational with someone who's trying to pull your strings won't work. Be ingenious and duck out. Good news towards mid month will boost your morale and open your eyes to new possibilities. It may mean broadening your horizons and aiming higher but it will work out well if you persevere. In the final ten days you'll be charming the birds off the trees, flirting like mad and looking great. Spending money will prove all too tempting on treats and extravagances. But you know your finances are unpredictable at the moment so saving when you can will be sensible.
and Next Month's Horoscope for May
Having recently bounced with vigour into your new birthday year, you'll now be considering how to put your good resolutions into practice. Which means planning, organising and tossing aside those schemes which aren't going to be workable. Money will be on your mind, partly because you'll be tempted to spend to pamper yourself. And that means getting the budget in order or improving your cash flow. Persistence will pay off and you'll combine common sense with ingenuity to get your situation stabilised with enough surplus for indulgences. Luckily your busy schedule won't give you much time for going too wild. As you race along, you'll speak your mind directly, get impatient with delays and mistakes, and at one point go well over the score promising what you will never be able to deliver. But no one will mind since you'll put yourself across with charm. After midmonth the mood at home may get heated as you race into action to reorganise which may not always go down too well. Your spending will shoot up and you will be scrambling to keep up with the pace of events.
Year Ahead 2019
You'll be pushing extra hard as the New Year opens, determined to make your mark and to get your talents recognised. There'll be obstacles to overcome, requiring self-discipline and perseverance. Letting self-doubt slow you down won't be helpful and luckily Jupiter in Sagittarius will keep your enthusiasm from flagging. And what will give your efforts an additional nudge is your feeling that it's now or never for success. That isn't true but the motivation will help you to make progress in sticky times. The early Lunar Eclipse will also nudge you to remember that fun and friends are important as well as achieving your goals. Your fiery go-ahead, act-first and think-second approach won't always be ideal so you'll need to pace yourself and take your responsibilities seriously. That way you'll gain the respect of those whose judgement you trust. Your financial situation will be changing with some ups and downs but that's not necessarily a disaster, since there'll be luck as well as extra outgoings at times. You just need to budget well and save when there's surplus. From mid year you'll slow down and put home and family matters up as your priority. Changes will be on your mind both literally in terms of reorganisation and also as you contemplate what emotional adjustments are needed for peace, harmony and satisfaction ahead. Speak frankly and tactfully and listen carefully and you'll reach agreements which are fair to all. Distractions at work and from your community activities will get in the way so listening to your heart, not your head will be important. August will be a social feast with fun, romance and enjoyment on offer as loved ones rally round to shower you with attention. Close relationships will hit a strained phase in October and November which can be overcome if you bite your tongue and say less. A confident, lucky and successful few months kicks off in December to allow you to sweep away any lurking concerns.
