    MYSTIC MEG 

    Horoscope today, Friday May 28: Daily guide to what your star sign has in store for your zodiac dates

    ARIES

    March 21 to April 20

    The moon illuminates a deeply held conviction or ambition – maybe one you tell other people you have given up.

    But inside it still burns bright.

    This can be your day to do something about it. But make sure it feels, rather than just looks, right.

    Love is ready to say more if both partners are ready to listen.

    TAURUS

    April 21 to May 21

    Your money chart is the one to watch as three key decisions are ready to be fixed.

    And cash changes you have made to benefit someone else can come back with a bonus for you, too.

    But best of all today, Jupiter in your friendship sector shows you who is right for an action, or adventure, group you are planning.

    GEMINI

    May 22 to June 21

    The moon’s spiritual aspect is strong in your chart and feelings start to change from the inside out.

    If you are in love already, showing how much you value a partner just as they are is the key to shared passion progress.

    If you are single, a gift for restyling homes and fashion images is your passion clue.

    CANCER

    June 22 to July 22

    A charity-based contest or challenge can be a great fit for your skills, especially any linked to design.

    Planet of independence Uranus makes sure you reach out to everyone who needs to be impressed.

    And this restarts a series of promises.

    “H” names and a lakeside location have links to Cancer luck.

    LEO

    July 23 to August 23

    You are the sign with the strongest work ethic today and the most vivid imagination.

    So ways you dream up to showcase your skills can make their mark – at work and among like-minded others, maybe in a creative setting.

    Your love profile is free and easy, until you see a new local face you can’t ignore.

    VIRGO

    August 24 to September 22

    Being part of a double act can boost your success chances, so at work think again about that offer to team up.

    And at home, instead of expecting other people to be perfect, be prepared to deal with them as they are.

    Two love heads are better than one – and getting a trusted pal’s opinion is a cool move.

    LIBRA

    September 23 to October 23

    You have a security-seeking chart and you are ready to stop talking and opt for action – especially in terms of where, or how, you want to live.

    The way you really listen to lovers and friends alike makes you stand out.

    And this time, your input will make a lasting difference.

    Lucky numbers start or end in two 3s.

    SCORPIO

    October 24 to November 22

    Letting your guard down may not be easy but this is the right time.

    So switch off pride and let all of you be seen and shared, including any doubts about where you are headed next.

    Because a last-minute switch of lover, or location, is on the cards.

    A tech start-up role offers so much more than money.

    SAGITTARIUS

    November 23 to December 21

    You can really put down roots if that is what you want – and this time they will feel like wind under your wings rather than a weight pulling you down.

    Maybe you have never seen yourself as the settling-down type. Until now.

    Your passion style is so together today – you see everything as being made for two.

    CAPRICORN

    December 22 to January 20

    A radiance about you commands attention, because you are sure about who you are and where you need to go next.

    So don’t let more cautious people obstruct your dreams.

    Your imagination is unique, and a story idea for TV or film has true potential.

    Lucky letters link to your middle name.

    AQUARIUS

    January 21 to February 18

    Deeply hidden views on cash, or other practical aspects of life, float to the surface – and you sense it’s time to restart genuine talks.

    These will not be the pale imitation you have been having these past few weeks.

    Uranus flags up a location or postcode that includes a “Q” – where you can find your forever home.

    PISCES

    February 19 to March 20

    If you are prepared to loosen strict rules on who you let into your life, friendships can bloom in unlikely places – and with people who remind you how you used to be.

    A moon of mutual respect and trust makes this a warm, emotional day.

    Mistakes can be written off as Jupiter helps to say, or hear, “sorry”.

    CAN YOU REALLY HAVE TWO SUN SIGNS?

    According to the AstroTwins, there is actually no such thing as cusp signs.

    They believe that due to the way the sun moves into each sign, there is no way you can be born under two at the same time.

    Astrologer, Francesca Oddie, said: “People really identify with their star sign and consider astrology a reliable tool for guidance.

    “When it comes to our finances, our horoscope can help us to understand characteristic traits that are reflected in our money management style.”

    In a poll of 2,000 adults, 48 per cent said they are influenced by their star sign’s predictions, with one in three adults using the advice from their sign to make life decisions.

    The research, commissioned by Barclays, found that Aquarius is the most financially confident star sign – with 42 per cent feeling happy with their money managing skills, compared to just 25 per cent of Libras.

    Meanwhile, Virgos are most likely to meet the financial goals they set for themselves and Sagittarians feel most out of touch with their finances as they avoid looking at them.

    IS THERE SCIENCE BEHIND ASTROLOGY?

    Scientists claim astrology is not yet proven and that the position of stars and planets is more accurately defined as astronomy.

    Astronomy uses mathematics, physics, and chemistry in order to explain the origin and evolution of objects in the universe (including the moon, sun and planets).

    Some, however, argue astrology is different and is a natural science too, as it deals with observations and prediction of events in the sky which influences human affairs and the natural world.

    That being said, there’s said to be no conclusive evidence that astrology is backed by science, or that astrology is an accurate predictor of personality traits, future destinies or love lives, as written in Smithsonian Magazine.
