YOU’s resident astrologer Sally Brompton reveals your horoscope for 11th-17th May 2020. So, what does the week have in store?
24 Oct-22 Nov
Preparation is half the battle. If you get the ground ready carefully this week you’ll be well on the way to achieving your goal. Rivals and competitors may look confident but don’t be fooled: in reality they’re more scared of you than you need be of them.
23 Nov-21 Dec
Reach out to someone you love this week. Say something that makes them feel good. Putting your feelings into words will come easily so make the most of it. And be sure any minor misunderstandings don’t turn into major problems.
22 Dec-20 Jan
Common sense is not as common as it should be so make it your job to promote logic and discourage wishful thinking. Practical problems require practical solutions so there’s no point being emotional about things that need to be dealt with sensibly.
21 Jan-19 Feb
With articulate Mercury joining diplomatic Venus in dynamic Gemini you will have no trouble getting your message across if you need to explain what you’re trying to do. In fact, all forms of communication should go well for you and could even make money.
20 Feb-20 March
Partners and loved ones may be unreasonable this week so the more you pick holes in their arguments the more unreasonable they will be. The answer, of course, is to let them get on with it and resist the urge to criticise. It will just make matters worse.
21 March-20 April
Negotiations and discussions will go well this week but they’ll go even better if you avoid being too serious-minded, even when talking about important things. The world does not have to be all doom and disaster. There is still plenty to laugh about.
21 April-21 May
You have a lot going for you now but, with your luxury-loving ruler Venus turning retrograde in the money area of your chart, you must curb your more extravagant tendencies. This is an important time for finances so hold on tight to those purse strings.
22 May-21 June
With your clever ruler Mercury in your sign until 28 May this is the time to make plans. Start by writing down what you want to achieve by the end of the year because if it’s there in black and white you’re less likely to be distracted by other things.
22 June-23 July
It would be easy to think the world is ganging up on you but also foolish. Others don’t care about your agenda any more than you care about theirs. With feisty Mars moving in your favour, just carry on doing your own thing – and have more self-confidence.
24 July-23 Aug
Honesty is everything this week: you must be honest with yourself, with your friends and even with those who are not being honest with you. Others may choose to bend the rules and distort the truth but you have higher standards. Live up to them.
24 Aug-23 Sept
You may have to yield to some kind of higher power this week but it shouldn’t be too hard. Once you’ve given respect where respect is due, you will find that doors that had been closed to you in the past will begin to open of their own accord.
24 Sept-23 Oct
Your needs must come first this week but as they coincide with others’ desires you won’t encounter too much opposition. If you have been thinking of studying something new, this is the perfect time to take it a step further.
