(No Ratings Yet)

BNN presents a weekly horoscope for May 12th – 18th.

Aries – you will feel happy and joyous this week; your emotions will keep you up. You should do all your important tasks in the first half of the week. Your inability to make decision is due to the conflict between your mind and your heart. You will have to choose who you trust more. Pay attention this week, otherwise you risk losing a valuable opportunity…

Taurus – try not to make any important decision this week. Give them a few days to adapt. People will try to confuse you as much as they possible can this week. You should not make decisions based on emotions alone! If you have problems with health or finances, you will find solutions to them. Pay attention to changes in the behaviour of your loved one.

Gemini – it is likely your loved ones will not pay much attention to your needs, but only because they know nothing about them. Tell them everything you have on your chest! Open up your emotions and feelings! You will also have to make important decision. Don’t rush them. Take the time to evaluate all conditions…

Cancer – changes will come this week. They will change your perspective about the future. Do not plan anything for the second half of the week – your friends have something planned. You will likely have difficulties with understanding people. Ask what bothers them.

Leo – your emotions will prevent you from concentrating on important tasks. Do try to find the time to consider matters surrounding your love life and the emotional side of life. Everything you hide may surface this week. It is vital to hear the truth: you need a change of plans…

Virgo – consider your finances. A sudden desire to buy something will make you regret it later. When changing your way of life and way of thinking, don’t be too extreme – do everything gradually. This will allow you to gain the best results. Wanting change is a natural thing, but they do not always for the best.

Libra – you are prepared for changes. You will notice even the strangest of ideas. It is important that you do not abandon your tasks and make extreme decisions. The past will remind of it, but it will not bring about negative emotions. Stick to your beliefs – the directions you have chosen for yourself is the right one.

Scorpio – you will end up in a situation in your family that will demand immediate realization. If you ignore it, there will only be more problems in the future. Ignore those you are sceptical about your ideas: you will achieve your goals. Be sure not to give up!

Sagittarius – you will feel in influx of energy this week. Don’t be surprised if you manage to make your dreams a reality. You will likely be conflicted about making a definitive choice due to the vast majority of opportunities. The stars want you to remain in the same place because this is exactly what will allow you to reach new heights.

Capricorn – you will likely feel dissatisfied with actions of others this week. Do try to tolerate this. Say with a smile on your face: ‘Everything’s al-right!’ Don’t spread rumours, because there is not truth in them. Wind out as much information as you possibly can about a new project before attempting it.

Aquarius – fear of new things is only natural. No matter what you set out to do, you will always achieve success. The future is clear. If you need help, ask for it. Look at things from a different angle: things are not as they seem. If you end up derailed from your usual pace, you may be able to find new things about yourself and those around you…

Pisces – now is the time to make decisions about your future. Your finances wills stabilize and you will be able to buy something you’ve always wanted. Ideas that will keep appearing in your head will not be realistic. Be prepared for relationships to heat up and become more complicated. It is best to resolve difficulties by having a heart to heart with the person you love.
