Raphael tells us what’s written in the stars this month

The time has come for you to face up to a long standing dispute and try to resolve it because things have gone on far too long, without benefit to either yourself or the other party. Sometimes it is the better person who can swallow their pride and make the first move so stop being so stubborn. You will feel a lot better about both yourself and the situation. Money wise there could be an unforeseen expense involving the car so make sure there’s a little left in the pot.

Your thoughts are still with an old flame that you cannot seem to get out of your head and this is having a negative impact on your life since it is obstructing any progress you might hope to make with a new partner. Admittedly, your current situation is not all you might have hoped it would be but you need to give things time to grow. Let go! Change isn’t something your sign embraces very well but now is as good at time as any to give it a go!

Your loyalty to a close friend will be supremely tested this month as you discover a secret that may compromise your long-term relationship. You have a difficult decision to make: do you confront your friend and risk everything or keep quiet and hope it all goes away. Whichever way you go, the outcome is set to cause you major headaches over the coming weeks. If you get the opportunity to take a few days holiday then you should grab it with both hands.

All is not well in your household at the moment with a partner causing you great consternation and concern. Truth be told, your relationship has been balanced on a rather fine edge of late due to an unresolved past issue. If you want to get things back on track then you have to clear the air by speaking a few home truths. It won’t be easy but, if something isn’t done soon, matters may deteriorate so far that you may lose the will to settle things.

Lately you’ve had difficulty relaxing and changes at work have left you confused and unclear about where you’re going. The ambitions of your youth have become jaded and out of focus and, since these formed your foundation, you’re left on uncertain ground for the future. The time for decisive action is at hand. The choices you make may have a significant impact on your life for the next few years so be sure to employ wisdom rather than haste in your decision.

Your sign does not like living on its nerves. Unfortunately there are too many things butting into your environment to make life as comfortable as you would like and the pressure bubbling up around you is not set to relax. The main bone of contention is with a partner whose possessive ways are starting to make life intolerable. Unless you can get them to back off a little, the sparks are going to fly and boiling point is not going to be pretty.

You might not feel you’re getting far with plans for the future and progress has been stifled by forces outside your control. However, the good news is that the tide is about to turn in your favour. On the family front, you might need to be a little more disciplined with a young child whose recent behaviour has given you and others cause for concern.

If you’re honest with yourself, just recently you’ve not been the easiest person to be around. Much of this has to do with unresolved problems in your own life but that’s no reason for making those close to you suffer! You may have to make some effort and perhaps treat those nearest to your heart with an evening out to show you acknowledge your faults and, more importantly, you do care..

The offer to take an exciting journey will be presented in mid May. You should dismiss any concerns and give it serious consideration. It’s likely the invitation is coming from a relative who’s keen to see you. Spending time in the company of those who love you is possibly the best thing you can do right now.

You will find yourself pleasantly surprised as a long-term plan finally comes to fruition and delivers a rewarding pay-off. Before you rush off on a spending spree, remember, you didn’t achieve this all by yourself; others are entitled to part of the spoils. On the family front a parent could impart some unwanted home truths regarding your behaviour towards a sibling. It might be best not to object. After all, there’s truth in what they say.

To your sign, the most important things in life are family, relationships and the comforting arms of a loving partner. You are feeling troubled as you sense something is not quite right and you’re having difficulty putting your finger on the problem. There’s no doubt a distance has developed between you but you should take an honest look at yourself and consider whether your own recent behaviour might be a contributing factor.

Your bullish, sometimes brash behaviour will get you in hot water again this month as you upset a family member and set the ball rolling to what could become quite an argument. You never seem to learn that sometimes it is best to keep your opinion to yourself and until you do, you’re going to suffer a lot more situations like this. On the relationship front, a loved one might be a bit prickly because of problems at work so try and be understanding.
