May 20 1969: End of Battle of Hamburger Hill (US tactical victory)
Aries: It’s a day of two halves. At first you’re trying to get your act together, and you perhaps feel that there are certain routine matters that need to be sorted out. However at a certain stage you need to make room for another person – it’s a meeting of equals. At work a slow explosion is under way – is this good news?
Taurus: It’s time to be sensible. There are some serious things going on, which need your attention. Everything needs to be in the right place, and you must make sure that you pay your bills on time. Yet through a hidden impulse you can connect to your fundamental spirituality.
Gemini: The Sun moves into your star sign, and your birthday month unfolds. You’re feeling increasingly confident about the future, and you’ll have an amazing sense of fun. However partners and lovers are feeling conflicted about something, and the sooner you find out what’s going on the better.
Cancer: A powerful aspect between Uranus and Pluto has an impact on your star sign. Many Cancerians have a craving to be successful, but the key to everything is making the right contacts. A person can be useful, but in the first instance some kind of transformation is necessary.
Leo: The Sun, your ruler, is moving into Gemini. Amongst other things, this puts the emphasis on friendship. It’s a time to seek out new friends, and make the most of existing ones. A phone call late in the day can make all the difference. Partners are exaggerating – they might even be embarrassing themselves.
Virgo: The Moon leaves your star sign, and you ready yourself for new challenges. In terms of money there’s work to be done, and you need to balance reasonable self-interest with natural humanity. In terms of career, you have a strong sense of purpose.
Libra: The Moon is moving into your star sign. You’re feeling that things are changing, that you’re now moving in the right direction. And what really matters is your ability to understand other people and their motivations.
Scorpio: OK, you can withdraw from the spotlight. There’s nothing much you have to do, and you can choose your own diversions. Indeed if you spend too long in other people’s company you’ll start feeling irritated. Someone who used to be important starts losing their shine.
Sagittarius: Jupiter, your ruler, receives a stressful, 135-degree aspect from Saturn. You’re ready to go, but something is holding you back. Maybe some of the people in your life aren’t right for you, and you need to sort out your life. Alternatively partners and lovers might need some care and attention.
Capricorn: You feel a certain sense of unease. It’s because the Jupiter-Saturn cycle is at a critical stage, with the forces of discipline and freedom being juxtaposed to each other. Both impulses are correct, but the balance has to be right. At home few things can be take for granted.
Aquarius: You don’t have to be quite so serious! It’s a time of year when you can start lightening up, and doing things that are genuinely creative. You also need to make room for other people, and in the process you should consider the possibility of a romantic interlude. A change of scene could be just what you need.
Pisces: You like the idea of staying in once place, soaking up the atmosphere. This might be a good thing, provided you don’t stagnate. You need to look around your environment, and see what can be down. Things connected with religion and spirituality should probably be avoided – at least for today.
