Free daily horoscope, celeb gossip and lucky numbers for 25 May, 2019


CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Lauryn Hill, Frank Oz, Anne Heche, Tom T. Hall, Connie Sellecca, Dixie Carter, Robert Ludlum, Mike Myers.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): A rather rigid atmosphere is likely to kick start the week and it could feel as though everything requires that little bit of extra effort. The reality is that you may well have extra insight: you could be a little more alert to the short and medium term consequences of recent decisions!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If there's a general feel to the day then it's likely to be an inflexible one with a slightly nagging quality. The pressure may be on, temporarily, but it is possible that you will come up against those types who are unwilling to budge or concede very much. As an aside; don't engage in dialogue that's going nowhere!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It may be best to simply accept the fact that things are likely to veer off-course today. That said; there's a lot you can do to minimize the effects of the erratic vibe. It may really help to curb a tendency to make decisions without consulting those who matter or who are involved!

CANCER (June 21-July 22): As with nearly all other signs, it's certainly a day to keep others on side. With that in mind, be warned that today's spiky vibe could create a few easily repairable misunderstandings. You may tend to overreact to the smallest thing, whilst ignoring the one issue that needs to be addressed!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It's not the best day. You might feel a little out of sorts on the work/career front, thanks to prickly lunar aspects. Specifically, numerous demands on your time will seem to be never-ending, and you might need to establish a definite cut-off point. Someone could take advantage if you let them!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): There is a desire to establish some control over one specific front, which may not be the best strategy to adopt for today. In addition, there's a tendency to assume the worst. What you regard as a rather impossible development may benefit a second, more objective analysis!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A fretful vibe could emphasize tricky situations and developments. You may overreact and possibly implement solutions that others may regard as self-serving. Don't try to dazzle and impress on a day where the main reaction from those around you will be a highly resistant one!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It's perhaps not a day to be overly proactive. It's certainly not a day to allow your pride to get in the way of a career/work problem. By the same token, someone's perspective or argument could appear to be very well thought-out, but you may benefit from doing your own research!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It's a good day to keep your eyes open for those minor openings and opportunities on the work front. However; agreeing to take up something at a moment's notice should be approached with any time-constraints in mind. Don't be flattered into taking on more than you can cope with!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It is likely to be a day of ups and downs on the work front. Other people are likely to be a little more random in their methods and reactions. Perhaps your best strategy will be to give yourself plenty of space and avoid trying to second-guess or predict the fluctuating mood!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The general vibe is likely to be a little intense and possibly a little self-serving too for many air signs. In addition; a specific situation may develop, but with conditions already attached. It's not so much that you need to react with common- sense; it's more that you need to apply a little caution!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A prickly vibe could make it difficult for you to maintain a sense of balance. There's a distinct tendency to be a little subjective and/or selective. It's also a day where you could reveal incorrect information or say the wrong thing to the wrong person. In light of this, try not to be too judgmental of others!

FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a romantic high, but a close friend might not approve. June is a sociable month, but July will require a firm and definite decision over romance! The theme of romance continues through October, but you could find you're feeling dissatisfied, while November brings some closure to an old matter. Be caring and sharing in December, but in January you might need to hold your cards close to your chest over a work or school matter. Start saving around now! February might be a lean month, while March could be unpredictable; go with the flow. April sees your cash flow take another dip at a most inconvenient time; hopefully your savings will have accumulated by now

CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Margot Robbie has found nothing but success since leaving her home country of Australia, landing a role in the hotly tipped super hero themed Suicide Squad. On top of that the planets tell us that her relationships are about to get exciting too!
