May Horoscopes

21st March – 20th April

There’s a new moon (new emotional phase) on the 3rd in the finances and resources section of your chart. New moons are like blank slates for new habits and intentions, so it’s all about positive expectation, for now and future circumstances. Your ruler Mars is building momentum on this from the 11th, and that day in particular is the sort of day that feels like luck is on your side. Approximately around the 20th is highlighted for all career matters, and love looks up from midmonth, especially around the 23rd, when a heart to heart reveals an ego-boosting heart of gold.

21st April – 21st May
Plenty of planets are in your sign this month, symbolising plenty of attention and energy focused your way. The new moon on the 3rd happens in your sign, which points to a new self-image, new mindset, and new resolve. Motivated Mars, love goddess Venus, and Mercury the magician are all on the your wavelength too, so not only are you a bit of a love magnet (especially around the 23rd), but you feel switched on and clear minded about your direction in many areas, and not averse to the idea that there’s magic in the air meant just for you.

22nd May – 21st June

The weeks before the sun moves into your sign is always an introspective time, a kind of gathering and processing of thoughts and emotions, but that doesn’t mean it’s a quiet time, because midmonth, and around the 11th in particular, groups and gatherings are highlighted with a celebratory feel in the air, and some opportunities and doors opening that you won’t want to miss. The sun moves into your sign on the 21st this year, linking temporarily to foggy Neptune, so don’t be too quick to judge a situation; wait till the 25th, a fabulous time for clarity and for making an impact.

22nd June – 22nd July

Friendships, groups and gatherings are a focus around the 3rd, on a theme of new energies and new beginnings. Around midmonth this is again highlighted, through expanding horizons, either through travel or through the input of different opinions and perspectives. What happens around the 20th in this will feel emotionally deep, but very supportive. Romance is a focus too at this time; and again feelings run deep but with a welcome stability. Meanwhile there could some lucky breaks regarding career plans and longterm ambitions around the 11th; it’s a time to experience positive news and the kindness of strangers.

23rd July – 23rd August

Don’t miss out on the fabulous energy surrounding career and longterm ambitions this month; it’s a time to project positive thoughts and trust that what you put out will be reflected through situations and circumstances (especially around the 3rd and 11th). Dynamic Mars in this area of your chart from the 11th is about feeling like you’re on a mission, and your motivation levels soar, while Mercury and Venus brings information, communication and plenty of people to harmonise with your vision; what happens around the 20th deepens the impact of all this.

24th August – 22nd September

From where you stand there’s a new feeling of stability emerging, and a determination to feel more anchored and secure. One of the ways you’ll be reaching for that this month is through travel; might sound like a paradox, but it’s when you are on the move, broadening your mind with new experiences that you can easily tap into the most secure sense of yourself right now. Stand your ground and hold your nerve when it comes to those who want you to see things their way so you do things their way; it’s your perspective, so use it or lose it.

23rd September – 23rd October

Recently you might have felt you didn’t have access to what you wanted to know, in a way that relieved insecurities and worries, but a grounding new moon on the 3rd in the trust angle of your chart acts like a light at the end of the tunnel on this, and your trust that when you ask it is given, builds momentum to reach a revelation around the 20th. Love feels lucky and fulfilling around midmonth, but especially around the 11th, when a bit of boldness and single-mindedness pays off. Don’t be put off by extra chaos in daily routine; it’s temporary.

24th October – 22nd November

Big emphasis on all relationships this month; beginning with a new moon on the 3rd which defines intentions for new and firmer foundations. It’s the solid ground you are reaching for, and though there’s shifting sands in some ways (particularly in the final week), your determined efforts for stable footing will build into something you can rely on. The full moon in your sign on the 17th opens you to feelings and emotions that you’ve been hiding, just in time for a really fabulous vibe for relationships around the 20th, particularly for romance, which speaks of a valuable connection or reconnection at that time.

23rd November – 21st December

Use the new moon on the 3rd to pause and ponder your current position, because feeling through where you stand in certain circumstances prepares you to move forward, symbolised by action planet Mars stepping boldly into the problem solving area of your chart from the 11th. You are ready to roll your sleeves up and dive in to what needs sorting, and while relationships and romance might bamboozle you from the 21st, the confusion just makes you more determined to find some clarity; best found as a by-product of the fun and good times to be had around the 25th.

22nd December – 20th January

This month gives you the push you need to get going with projects you’ve procrastinated about for too long. Anything creative has your juices flowing, and rather than feeling a bit unsure or uncertain about it all, as has been happening of late, there’s a comforting feeling of knowing where you stand at last (especially by the 20th). So don’t let others mixed messages or vague stance undermine you around that time; and do enjoy the home and family vibe that is strong all month; especially the good news that arrives around the 11th.

21st January – 18th February

Don’t put up with a painful point of view for the sake of being logical; remember that you are the innovator when it comes to new pathways of thought, and it’s not always easy to keep up to speed with all that when old pesky beliefs get so settled in they have a sort of weird security to them. The question is always whether it’s a point of view you would like to count on, as reality has to be based on at least a place of serious like. The acceptable view just might not have the va va voom you are seeking; so it’s time to get inventive.

19th February – 20th March

You are in the mood to speak your mind this month, but it’s a slow burner, a gradual build; not a spur of the moment outburst, and this slow, steady, consideration for where you stand means others feel the courage of your conviction tangibly, especially from the 11th. Also around the 11th watch for windows of opportunity that open with little effort on your part, related to income and resources. From the 21st, it’s easy to feel drained by home or family situations, but it’s just a bit of pushing against the prevailing tide; something that you never indulge in for long.
