ARIES(March 21st-April 20th)
Are you beginning to assess what happened (or didn’t happen) back in March? Do you need a fresh start? Or are you ready to make a complete break? Either way, exploring and expanding your options in early May works well – any little change of routine boosts your wellbeing. And meeting new people, or reconnecting with old friends, widens your point of view and lifts your mood more than usual too. Someone (maybe a Gemini) could have some very interesting news to share with you, or offers you an opportunity to learn or earn more. Do pace yourself, especially mid-month. Your fiery intuition can mislead you if you just grab the first thing you see. Be very cautious when it comes to money and finances. Being a crazy-busy person won’t help you much either. If you really want to channel your creativity and inner guidance then spending some quality time at home, or with your family, is incredibly valuable. Mars in Cancer from 16th May favours new ways with old conundrums.
TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Your brand-new Zodiac year is in bloom, with the Sun plus an earthy, musical new Moon in Taurus on Saturday, 4th May. Why not set some intentions, or visit somewhere beautiful that day? This is a mischievous, magical season in more ways than one. Later this month chatty Mercury (6th) and your own ruling planet, Venus (15th) are glowing in your sign too. You’re gorgeous, your voice is bewitching, and basically you’re just irresistible! Since Uranus, quirky planet of change, is also now settled in Taurus, you might want to explore what’s original, or inventive. How you present yourself, your love life, and even how you earn your living can all benefit from a fresh eye, an unexpected twist. Keeping an open mind is vital, for all manner of people you meet in groups can benefit or inspire you. Getting involved with a class, neighbourhood project, club or some charity fundraising could be your way out of a rut – chances are you’ll receive encouragement or support when you least expect it.
GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
If you’ve felt frustrated or confused lately, relax. Early May sees some of the mists melting away as you begin to see results, or make some serious decisions about your finances and other down-to-earth matters. Then, with Mercury in Taurus, you can blend practicality with imagination. You could discover new ways to tune into the natural world – or connect with those amazing treasures in your mind. Sun and Mercury enter Gemini on 21st May for a lively, chatty start to your Zodiac year. Your intuition comes knocking loudly at this time, enabling you to tune into future trends or find ways of understanding others more deeply than usual. It’s a positive phase for communications, and for thinking about what’s next. Do any of your hopes and dreams involve raising money? If so, May is a helpful time to look at your options. The first ten days of June promise to be upbeat and lively. So if you prepare now, you’ll be able to take full advantage of that sparkling cosmic weather then.
CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
You’d probably like to spend some more time with kindred spirits this month. Some little adventures or interesting conversations are just what you need to feed your imagination or soothe your soul. A mystical, musical new Moon on 4th May drops hints in your dreams or sparks off your intuition – see what washes up on the shores of your conscious mind. It could seem strange at first, yet be very valuable to you. Energy planet Mars enters Cancer on 16th May, boosting your confidence and desire to make things happen until the end of June. And with Venus in compatible Taurus, you’ll find shared projects, art, music and nature bring you pleasure, inspiration, or even romantic moments. But if you’re looking for change in your working partnerships you may have to be patient and play a waiting game. It’s likely that news from abroad will influence things in ways you weren’t expecting. A home-loving individual or a healer could also play an important role in your life too. Keep an open mind.
LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Planets in earthy Taurus focus on your ability and desire to get things done, even if you find yourself drawn to unusual, quirky possibilities this May. Playing it by ear is probably the best way to go. Uranus, planet of change, is in Taurus for a long stay – your hopes and goals are due for renovation or even revolution in the next few years. People you meet, and ideas you come across, offer some intriguing clues this month, and many Leos (particularly July birthdays) will begin to play with ideas or consider exciting new directions. Take your time, for with Mars in Cancer from 16th May, your subconscious intuition is vitally important too. Jupiter in Sagittarius boosts creativity and romantic feelings until the autumn months, so no need to exhaust yourself with fear of missing out. There’s also a lot going on behind the scenes now, so why not find your fabulous inner feline nature and just be a little watchful instead? On 1st July Mars enters Leo for the first time since 2017 – you’ll have much to make you purr this summer.
VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Commitment, hard work and preparation are some big themes in May. Once your ruler, Mercury, enters Taurus on 6th May, you’re thinking ever more deeply and seriously about things as you learn more about yourself, and others. You may want to study, or develop an important relationship. Your travel dreams mostly aren’t frivolous fly-and-flop either – you’ll want to travel for knowledge, or maybe to work. 10th – 15th May glows with energy – you can impress others, or persuade people to support you and your ideas if you need to. The Scorpio full Moon on 18th May signals further information, and highlights important conversations. Keep going! Sun and Mercury in Gemini from 21st May favour communications, interviews, and your social media skills. This is also a great time to have fun channelling your fantastic wit and creativity – it will help you deal with all the serious stuff that’s going on around you too. By the end of May travel, communication, writing or speaking are all potentially lucky activities. May is looking special, so do make some private space for rest and relaxation so that you can make the most of it.
LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
You share your graceful ruling planet, Venus, with Taurus. When Venus enters Taurus on 15th May she’s strong, sensuous, and indulgent – and so are you this May. Just keep a cool head, and be focused when dealing with shared cash or financial deals and commitments. Fortunately, the clever and analytical asteroid Pallas is in Libra, reminding you to look before you leap and check out those sneaky terms and conditions. Mars begins shaking things up from Cancer the Crab from 16th May – maybe you’ll work more from home, maybe you’ll meet some new people who’ll bring fresh points of view, or get a chance to travel and make connections abroad. If you’re prepared to be curious, you’ll attract good luck at this time. All manner of doors are opening up for you – mostly through the influence of other people. Some of these people are unusual or can help you in ways you’d not imagined. So why not forget about doing lots of formal ‘networking’, and simply take an interest in everyone you meet? Inspiration strikes when you least expect it.
SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Your neighbourhood can both inspire and restrict you in some way this May. Perhaps you want to move, but are finding this much harder than you imagined. Perhaps you’re working more from home, and aren’t used to making your own routines. Your digital “neighbourhood” is highlighted too – do you want to change how you use social media, for example? Those close to you are more than ready to help or listen, so you can choose to confide in someone you trust. Mars, your traditional ruler, moves into compatible Cancer the Crab on 16th May, followed by your own annual Scorpio full Moon on 18th May. Much comes to a head then, and can be released. A few things are likely to surprise you around that time, and you realise you can’t control everything. It’s a late springtime turning point. And with Mars in Cancer until 30th June, there’s enough time to open up and see everything from a wider or less conventional perspective. You might have overlooked or abandoned something that makes you happy. If so, think about making time for it, and set out to explore a new interest or an old friendship.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Feed yourself well on every level this May. Not only are planets highlighting your wellbeing from sensuous Taurus, but you also have dwarf planet Ceres in your sign. Ceres symbolises nourishment, Jupiter in Sagittarius is expansion, together their message to you is about feeling good mentally, spiritually, and physically. Taking proper care of yourself helps you bounce along through a busy month. For early May offers a very lively phase for relationships and longstanding connections – you can make a big impression on others, be a wicked flirt, or meet new people. There’s a lot of talking too – its mostly just entertaining, but some conversations give you much intriguing food for thought. After the Sun and Mercury enter Gemini on 21st May, you’ll find others take a starring role in your plans. If you want to assess your year so far, this would be a helpful time to do that. Talking to those who know you well brings further insights – pay close attention towards the very end of May when what you hear (or find out) can have a dynamic effect on your prospects.
CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
This is a deeply serious phase for all Capricorns, in the midst of a very hard-working year. Birthdays between 8th – 14th January may be more sensitive to this theme than everyone else, but the whole story is, of course, found in your own personal natal chart. Anyway, Saturn, Pluto, and the Dragon’s Tail are all up close and personal in your sign this year. It’s time to focus and pay attention to your choices and routines, for what’s happening now ripples out across the year and can lead on to success or swamps, depending upon how you handle things, and how you connect with others. Meanwhile, some delectable, pleasurable, or romantic moments offer light relief thanks to planets in earthy, fertile Taurus. If you encounter something weirdly fateful (even though you’re a pragmatic soul) your best bet is to spend some time in nature and quietly think things through. Are your dreams realistic? Being practical sounds so dull, but it serves you well. Plus, what you build now (including savings) has rock-solid foundations. These, in the end, are more fulfilling than fragile castles in the air.
AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Family or property news could surprise you this May, perhaps as early as the 4th when a new Moon rises in Taurus. Unexpected visitors or attractive new neighbours crop up this month as well, throwing your routines or comfortable habits into disarray. Yet you’re a sociable creature, and will soon realise that you’ve been wanting something fresh and entertaining to come along for a while. Mars in ever-chatty Gemini boosts those restless, impulsive feelings until 16th May, so if you want to see more of friends or family early May is a helpful time to get in touch. Certain situations seem to be coming to a head at work, but are they really? Final decisions or clarity could take a while longer. There are hidden factors or secret negotiations that will influence the outcome – and until you know all the facts you may not be able to have much control. Humour and creativity come to your rescue as the Sun and Mercury enter airy Gemini on 21st – do say yes to any opportunities to do something different or meet up with those who make you laugh. Sharing humour could be so romantic.
PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Your amazing ability to sense what others are thinking, or feeling, helps you calm any bumpy situations you encounter this May. You may be more than a little vague or dreamy yourself, yet this mood gifts you with zen-like inner harmony and intuitive sorcery. Your main challenge is to stay grounded – getting enough sleep, good food, and exercise always helps, as you know. But once you’ve got a tight hold of the shimmering unicorn, you can do anything. Jupiter in Sagittarius is now backtracking until August, a great opportunity to revise ideas or projects you’ve been involved with this year. It’s a phase of high ideals, incredible visions, and spiritual longing. And none of this will go away if you ask some of your more down-to-earth friends for support and advice. They’ll help you manifest things, rather than trampling on your dreams. Once Mars enters Cancer on 16th May, you have a sexy energy boost to fuel you until July. Yes, things may not proceed in a conventional, or even organised, manner. So bear this in mind and don’t allow negative thoughts to bring you down. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, and all will be well.
