Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
Last month was certainly a month of excitement and the prospect of new beginnings. Now May sees you living with the consequences. Perhaps you spent all of your “mad money” and now you need to reassess your budget. It is time to look at the big picture while at the same time keeping your feet firmly on the ground. April saw you soar. May sees you land on the ground. Where do you want to land? What are your plans for the future and how can you finance them? First you have the lessons and then you have the application of lessons learnt. On the whole you are usually more adept at flight and fight rather than standing firm and quietly, however; this is what you need to do now. Your personal value system stands you in good stead as you move forward step by step.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
May is a pleasurable month with the Sun and Venus, the planet of beauty, in your Zodiac Sign. You are able to put yourself first this month. It is time to celebrate anything that is close to your heart. Count your blessings and embrace the people and things of value. It is also time to celebrate all of your personal achievements. These are different for everyone. What makes your life worthwhile? It is sometimes easy to take things and people for granted. Now is your month for appreciating all that is given to you. Of course you are a reliable Taurean and give much to those who you love. So you can take some time out to feel good about your own accomplishments as well. Generally speaking this is a good month for love and money.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
Your ruling planet Mercury is Retrograde for most of this month meaning that you need to take some time to think before you act. As a spontaneous Gemini you are more likely to act quickly and make decisions on the run. However May is better suited to careful planning, reassessing goals and preparing for the future. If you can take a breather then this is well advised. If not then you may need to enlist the help of others so that you can complete current projects. The more that you can prepare behind the scenes the better able you will be to enjoy activities in the near future. You may also benefit through connections with institutions such as museums, foundations, hospitals and philanthropic organisations.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Groups and associations are highlighted for Cancerians in May. Change is afoot as you assess how you expend your time and energy, and how you invest your money. With the planet Mercury going Retrograde this is not a month to make major decisions, however; it is a good time to take an honest look at your own feelings. Are you placing the correct emphasis on the right projects and people in your life? Are there changes that you could make that reflect your feelings more honestly? Are you being realistic in your assessment or is your heart ruling your head? These are the types of questions that may arise. By the end of the month you are moving forward again, more sure-footed as a result of your reflections.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
May is a positive month for Leos with your public life flourishing and your self-esteem soaring. Money flows. The trick is to make sure that you make the most of the goodies coming your way while ensuring that your income exceeds your spending. While your professional life is bountiful you may need to put some plans or decisions on the back-burner until the end of the month. Your relationship status may be the only cause of some fluctuations. If you are single then you are likely to be looking for love. You need to search somewhere different to your usual places or take an alternative view of your own relationship needs. If you are in a committed relationship then it is time to spark up the union with some new interests.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
May is an excellent month for Virgos to organise, categorise and research topics of interest. If you are spiritually or religiously oriented then you may like to take some time to further your studies. It is time to perfect your craft while keeping your eye on the big pictures. Generally speaking May is not a month for making big decisions, signing contracts or changing direction as the planet of communications is Retrograde. However, you may like to explore some connections that can steer you in a positive direction. With the bountiful planet Jupiter travelling through your Zodiac Sign now is the right time to embrace new ideas and broaden your perspective.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
It is time to tune into the ebb and flow of your life and the lives of those around you. April was a bumpy ride and now it is time to assess the changes that are occurring in your life and to make some decisions. Investments of time and energy are under scrutiny. You need to face some changes that may be either disconcerting or exciting. Either way the trick is to remember that there is at least one angel overlooking your affairs. You can go with the flow this month. Think of the ocean that rises and falls with its tides and different patterns. This helps you keep your equilibrium, an important component of life for all Librans.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Money matters and your partner’s affairs are centre stage this month. Your personal finances are demanding some tough decisions and action. This could be in form of tightening the budget or you could be driving a hard bargain for something right now. A change in your partner’s life may be affecting your own sense of worth or fiscal affairs. One way or another marriage, contracts or treaties are influencing your life. A significant Taurean may also feature this month. Generally speaking this is not the time for major changes or signing of contracts. Rather you need to focus on preparing for the future.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
May is a more serious month than usual for sunny Sagittarians. The planets Mars and Saturn are travelling through your Zodiac Sign indicating that setbacks and delays can occur. As a result you are required to reflect on your goals. Are you heading in the right direction? If so then you need to proceed slowly and surely, providing a firm foundation for all that is of value in your life. If not, then you need to implement changes so that you can live a more rewarding and satisfying life. Daily tasks are likely to demand your attention. It is time to make changes on your work front as you move ahead with your life goals.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
May can be a creative time for Capricorns as you work on creative projects and surround yourself with like-minded individuals. You may discover some talents, or receive recognition for talents, that are satisfying and fun. You are a little more light-hearted than usual although you remain focussed on achieving your personal ambitions. You may benefit from working behind the scenes, taking some time out or taking on board some voluntary work. Your imagination is also likely to be more prevalent than usual. Therefore you may benefit from daydreaming, visits to museums or galleries or perhaps an artistic outing.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Family matters are at the forefront this month. Friendships and group activities move to the background as you focus on home and hearth. You may be planning some changes around your home, a visitor may arrive or you could simply enjoy de-cluttering and refreshing your household environment. A little landscaping could provide some light relief if you are an agrarian Aquarian. Joint projects and finances can be positive this month as long as you don’t overspend or stretch your personal finances too far. This is a time for hesitation rather than rash spending.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Pisceans need something positive to occupy thoughts this month. It is time for you to daydream, use your imagination and emphasise positive thoughts. The planets are aligned in such a way as to encourage you to seek uplifting connections and take part in creative activities. Neighbourhood groups or classes could be a source of inspiration, as could short journeys or connections with siblings. Your primary partner may also be a positive influence right now. Imagination is your key to enjoying daily activities. Creative visualisation, meditation and prayer could also be powerful forces during May.
