Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
Light bulb moments strike this month as the planets Uranus and Mercury line up in your Zodiac Sign. These planetary influences mean that your mind is busier than usual. You are brimming with bright ideas. However you also need to think before your speak as you could be prone to sudden out bursts. In other words the distance between your brain and your mouth is on a short fuse this month. You also need to weigh up the pros and cons and set a budget before pursuing rash schemes. You are also advised to avoid conflicts with any financial institutions. This is your month to practise diplomacy. If in doubt try to emulate your Libran associates. They are your opposites and are always polite. Inspiration coupled with application are the keys to success in new fields. You may also take the lead in neighbourhood groups.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Unexpected events are likely to surprise you, challenging you to move out of your comfort zone. Luckily the Sun is moving through your Zodiac Sign and so you are well able to rise to any task set this month. You may be keen to move forward with personal money matters. As long as you gain the co-operation of others you are well able to achieve your objectives. However if you are too forceful then finances may be the source of conflict. You would do well to compromise unless you are resolved to live with the consequences no matter which way they fall. Try to relax and take some time out at the start of the month. This will help you keep things in perspective and get more positive results. Now is the time for you to be grateful for the good in your life and discarding what no longer serves you.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
The feisty planet Mars has moved into your Zodiac Sign sparking extra verve and vivacity. Opportunities abound and you may have reached a fork in the road. As long as you don’t scatter your energy then you can move forward with your personal goals. You can explore all options and ask for a little help from friends before you have to make up your mind. Mars is the planet that governs drive and passion. In the mutable air sign of Gemini, Mars can indicate a passion for words. As long as you don’t get too fired up and use your words as a weapon then all is well. You may prefer to tackle a written project or something that demands mental focus. You social calendar is likely to busy and so much of your energy could be taken up with friends, groups and networking.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Women bring good fortune your way this month. These could be women you already know or new connections. The Sun, Venus and the Moon are aligned in such a way as to really boost the feminine energy in many areas of your life. You need to listen to your intuition, honour your emotions and communicate with a loving heart. Your schedule may also be busier than usual. You usually love relaxing in your home environment but this month groups, friends and social events are highlighted. This is your time to move out of your comfort zone and enjoy convivial interludes. You can join special interests groups, try out a new pastime or accept friends’ invitations to events with a difference. It is time to try something new, something that excites you. If you are fearful, then right now you can feel the fear and do it anyway.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
This is your month to make advances with your professional goals. A work project is likely to be the focus more so than your private life. Leos love to shine in the world and this month your ruling planet the Sun is high in your Solar chart indicating that you can shine in whichever way you choose. You may receive accolades and appreciation in your chosen career. Those in authority notice your achievements. If you are self-employed then your efforts are rewarded. Alternatively if you are a member of a group, holding a public office, then this is likely to demand more of your time. It is not all work this month. You may enjoy a short journey, taking some time out to spend with siblings or to explore a new neighbourhood. You may also welcome unexpected surprises linked with overseas travellers or foreign cultures.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Your self-esteem is high and as a result your personal finances may receive a boost. You are likely to enjoy anything that broadens your horizons this month – study, teaching, travel, religion, sport to name a few. The world is your oyster as long as you are not too picky. The challenge this month is to remain open-minded as two planets – Uranus and Mercury – combine to stimulate new ways of thinking. In particular Virgos are likely to have flashes of inspiration. You see one or more areas of your life in new ways. It is not necessarily the right time to act on these insights but they are definitely worth noting. If you are usually cautious then you can use this influence to try something new. Otherwise you can wait until things settle and make a sensible plan, as you usually would.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
It is time to heal any unresolved hurts linked to a past or current relationship. Any unfinished business needs to be cleared so that you can move forward with your own life. Quite separate to this it is possible that a current loved needs some tender loving care. Luckily the positive planet Jupiter is still wending its way through your Zodiac Sign indicating that you can handle all that comes your way. Your diplomacy skills and ability to live in harmony with others is highlighted. Pursuits connected with the arts may also be healing – visiting an art gallery, attending a theatre or ballet performance or listening to soothing music are examples. The feisty planet Mars is in your travel sector and so you may be tempted to journey to distant shores in order to further enhance your health and wellbeing.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
The relationship sector of your Solar Chart is highlighted during May. If you are single then your solitary status may be under review. Do you want to be single? If not what can you do about the state of affairs? If you are in a committed relationship then the nuances of your union are more prominent than usual. In some cases it could simply be that someone else is the focus of your life right now. You are not able to concentrate on your own affairs. Something or someone is reminding you about the seasons of life. You are being called on to put someone else’s needs first. If this is proving somewhat testing then you can be reassured by the fact that the planet Jupiter is placed to remind you that there is always an angel at your shoulder.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
It is time to be your bouncy best. Your health and wellbeing are themes this month. It is time to undertake activities that boost your health. You may join a gym, start walking, take your bicycle out of the dust covers, make time for meditation, or step out to a dance class. The choice is yours. The main thing is that you do something that reduces stress and puts some extra zing in your life. Your daily work and social life are likely to be busier than usual so paying extra attention to your diet and exercise regime help you thrive in the busy schedule. Friends are featured and can be a good support and lots of fun during May. You can relax and enjoy participating in groups, clubs and friendship circles. If you have any domestic animals then your pets may need tending.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Your ruling planet Saturn is currently traversing backwards, or so it appears. In astrological terms this is known as Saturn Retrograde. This means that Capricorns, both the domestic and mountain goats of the Zodiac need to pay attention to unfinished business. It is an excellent time to check the details of any plans or projects that are in the pipeline. Anything that is linked to a creative project, an activity connected to children or even a romance, needs to be examined. You need to go back and attend to the finer details before you can move forward again. You need to defrag your computer and clear your mind of past problems so that you have a clean slate for moving forward. As sensible Capricorns are aware any time spent on the details now will pay rewards later. As US businessman Harvey S Firestone says: “Success is the sum of details.”
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
May sees the planets aligned in the private sector of your Solar Chart. Your public life takes a backseat. Your usual social commitments may be put on hold this month so that you can attend to matters in your private life. It is possible that your home needs some sudden and unexpected repairs or that a surprising event leads to your family having first claim on your time. This is true whether you live on your own, share a household or reside in a family. This month household matters take priority. If you feel restless then try to put your unsettled energy into inventive tasks and home events. Now is the time to clear out cupboards, repair anything that is broken, and update electrical goods. You may also be inspired to redecorate in a way that you could have never imagined.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Positive connections are the key to success this month. You need to quieten your mind, focus on positive thoughts and put your worries behind you. People and activities that help you do this can be embraced during May. This is the ideal month to join a prayer group, start a meditation course or take part in relaxing and fun activities that help you communicate. It is also possible that you can benefit by taking a leaf from the down-to-earth Virgo book. Virgo is your opposing sign and you have much to teach each other. This month gardening, household chores, organising your possessions and daily walks around the block can be soothing. Unexpected changes in your personal finances may occur. It is also possible that you receive a gift or a dividend from an investment. You can make positive changes if you stay focussed on your goals.
