Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
The start of May sees you maintaining the fast-paced momentum of recent times. Areas of your life that have taken off in recent times are still on a roll. However, it is time to slow down and take stock in the middle of this month. Consolidate your plans, and more importantly, make sure that you have the physical and financial resources to continue. If in doubt seek the counsel of a spouse, business partner or respected elder.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
While your Aries companions are being called on to slow down and face practical facts, you are hitting your stride this month. The planets are aligning in Taurus and are favouring you right now. Make the most of this generous influence to plant the seeds of good fortune. Whether you seek greater emotional or financial riches, you are likely to be faced with choices. These opportunities don’t come along every day and so choose wisely. The key is to be honest with yourself, and others, about what you really want in your life. If you do this then your choice will be rewarded. You may also benefit from a health check up this month.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
It is all systems go again for the lively Geminis. You are likely to go a long way towards reaching your goals this month, with a little help from your friends. Some frustrations may ensue as you are required to make practical plans and to focus your energies rather than your usual modus operandi of diversification. Therefore a plan, guideline, journal and/or calendar are handy tools. This is the ideal month to call for help from your network of co-workers and friends. They are likely to be inspired by your creative spirit. Allow your inner imp to play, but with some guidelines, and you will be surprised by the resulting treasure. Think of the infamous “Pirates of the Carribean” film series. Johnny Depp’s character Captain Jack Sparrow is a delightfully playful portrayal of just how mischievous and charming a Gemini can be.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Like last month the planets are still aligned to help you escape your usual comforts at home and shine in a personal goal or ambition. For once you are able to be noticed at work for your skills, expertise and initiative, as opposed to your ability to nurture everyone else. If you work in a caring profession then opportunities abound for you to enjoy your work and to reap rewards, particularly after mid May. Someone near and dear may be a little upset at the lack of attention, as they are accustomed to you looking after their needs. You need to strike the right balance between self-assertion and compromise. Just remember that there is a fine line between compromise and self-sacrifice when it comes to personal relationships.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
You may find yourself yearning for greener pastures this month. It is time to broaden your horizons. This could be through travel, study, teaching or preparing something for publication. On the other hand, you may enjoy watching a DVD series, reading books or linking to other cultures on the internet. Rewards flow through from past professional matters. If you have been working hard, then you are likely to receive the recognition now. However, you are not ready to rest on your laurels. You are seeking to add meaning to your life, rather than satisfy material ambitions. Communications take on a serious nature, and you turn your attention towards practicalities towards the end of May.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Money matters demand attention this month. Investments, inheritances, other people’s money management are under your personal microscope. You are ready to draw up a budget. If you met someone new in recent months then you may well be examining them in the light of their expenses. What do others bring to the table right now? How can you make the most of your own resources? What do you need to change? These are all very good questions waiting to be answered and you are ready, willing and able to implement change.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
The planets continue to wend their way through the different constellations and highlight different themes. However, their position at birth is the strongest influence and a common theme often occurs throughout life. In your case the theme is other people, your loved ones in your closest circle and those who you meet for the briefest of moments. People have the power to upset your Libran equilibrium. Equally they are a potent force for creating harmony and fulfilment. This month once again presents you with the opportunity to learn how to create the right balance in relationships.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
The month of May is more about other people than it is about you. If you are single then you have the chance to pursue a new relationship, perhaps through study or travel. If you are in a committed relationship then you have the chance to enjoy shared activities and goals. It is also time to “listen’ to your body. Your calendar may be demanding but your stars are signalling a need to take some much needed time out. Isolation can be regenerative and it is much better to choose to slow down rather than have it forced on you through exhaustion, or ill health.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Creative projects are again at the forefront this month. The muse has descended and you need to make the most of this. You may need to curb your social activities in order to pursue your own hobbies, artistic activities or playful goals. It is time to enjoy yourself, have some fun and listen to your “inner child”. It may be that you are rejoicing in an active project, however; you are also able to just rest and relax. Sometimes the creative processes are at their most active, when we are quiet and still.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
At the moment your professional life is stable. You are reaping the rewards from past efforts and building opportunities for the future. As such it is time to put your personal life in order. Once again home and family are highlighted. You need to focus on the foundations of your life. This may be literally starting a building project, or it could simply mean rearranging the furniture in your abode. If you have children, then this is the ideal month to plan some fun activities. You may also like to start planning new creative projects, enjoying the flow of new ideas without the pressure of making firm decisions or plans just yet.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Once again ideas, plans and communications are highlighted. If you have not already done so, then it is time to make some decisions regarding contracts, plans, projects and intellectual pursuits. Whereas last month the ideas flowed, this month you need to make some decisions if you have not already done so. There are many options and you will have the opportunity to change your mind if you want to, but take the plunge and commit to a course of action. Who knows where it will take you?
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
On the whole you have a positive attitude this month and may be offered opportunities to learn new skills. It is important that the choices that you make this month boost your self-esteem, and therefore also your income. Believe it or not the two are linked. This is a good month to reassess your budget, your spending habits and to implement changes that lighten the financial load. Take a sensible approach and avoid overspending and you will be delighted with the peace of mind that results.
