The month of April may have been a little fast paced and so a visit from Mercury retrograde from the 19th of May to 12th June to slow things down will be a nice welcome. You know the drill, hold off major decisions, purchases or travel plans if possible and avoid confrontations. On the whole, May seems to be a relatively positive month. The first week will present some confusion and disappointments relating to finances and it may be hard to settle down on a particular idea or decision as none of the options seems to stand out. A feeling of nothing seems to be going right sets in. However, things soon clear up as we weigh the pros and cons of what is before us and something which has sat on the back burner for some time will be revisited as a preferred option. Motivation heightens as our intuition guides us to the right people and places. There will be no need to rush as the slow and steady will emerge as winners. By the end of the month when the Mercury retrograde kicks in, things will move slower than expected. Rather than going against the flow just plod on at your own pace and wait to be nicely rewarded at the end of the retrograde. May pans out to be a good month for business and financial related matters. For some, health concerns may turn out to be a false alarm. Though things may seem confusing, unclear and slow at first it soon clears up and overall confidence picks up for all so we may move forward with plans that have sat on the back burner for a long time which represents itself as the perfect opportunity this month.
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
It might be a case of taking on much more than one can handle this month in terms of a career and/or business. Some soul searching may be needed to rearrange that list of goals to be achieved in terms of importance. Be firm with decisions and success will follow. It is said that sharing is caring. But the act of selflessness will not be appropriate for this month. Thinking about our own needs and desires may not be such a bad thing. Offer help only if it is convenient. By the end of the month, this discipline will be rewarded with an illuminated road to success.
The year kick starts with wanting to enjoy being in the moment. And why not?! The world would be a better place if everyone did just that. Avoiding making any major decisions concerning career direction and allowing one self to be led where life brings seems the right thing whilst searching for the perfect fit. However, things will take a turn when this so called ‘aimless’ wandering makes a full circle and come back to square one. It was nice to be bobbing along while it lasted but it’s time to ‘get serious’ by the second half of the year. This is when a light bulb moment presents itself revealing that there was really no need to go to this length in this search when things were right there all this while. Then begins the journey to see to fruition one’s passion and desires. It will take plenty of polishing and refining to achieve success and also a number of hard knocks on finances. During these times, the need to review your direction in life will arise. Each obstacle will build self-assurance and wisdom to finally reach your destination. On the whole, it is going to be a journey of self-discovery which begins with making a choice to not feel bogged down by financial commitments and going where the tide brings. It’s all about creating that balance and realising that happiness can be achieved with attending to commitments without having to lose the right to our freedom!
It’s all about perspectives this month. We have the power to change our outlook and state of our circumstances and are certainly not victims of it. Practise prudence and move slowly with any plans. Whilst everyone else around seem to be in a state of confusion and uncertainty Aries on the other hand will seem to be more sure and certain of what must be done to make a change. With new found positivity options will spring out of the woodwork! By the end of the month it will be a case of, ‘Wow it was really that easy to reverse the situation so what was all that struggling for?’ Good luck Aries!
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Confusion has cast a cloud over how to fulfil a desire to be financially free. It’s important that what needs to be done to get there makes us happy at the same time and doesn’t just feel like a means to an end. But finding IT proves to be harder than thought. A proper soul searching experience is what this month of May brings. Gemini, your charisma and light will emerge from this cloud just when the retrograde sets in. Instead of seeking new ideas it will make sense to revisit past ideas and see things from a different perspective. That is the Eureka moment!
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
There is nothing like family! This month take the time to rejoice in the relationships that you cherish so dear. There is one particular person that seems to receive this undivided attention and that is the person that has played a maternal figure in your life. She seems to be in need of some tender loving care this month. Take the time to shower care and concern as she has been doing this unconditionally all her life.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
The wait for good news to come around seems never ending. A lot has been invested in a new venture but the feeling of doubt of ever hearing anything good sets in. A recurring pattern is being observed. There will be an urge to cut losses and look elsewhere and/or come up with new ideas to achieve the desired results. However, hold your horses before doing that. Somewhere in this recurring pattern sits an important lesson which is to be learnt to break this cycle.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
The urge to be confrontational is very strong this month. The need for thought processing is extremely important before partaking in any form of confrontation. Not doing so will lead to relationships turning very sour. It’s best to keep a rein on any harshness for the time being and use emotional intelligence to understand the underlying reason for this feeling. It is after all a month of Mercury retrograde so extra care should be taken with speech in to avoid misinterpretation by others.
Librans seem to be in a planning and strategizing mode this month. The timing seems right to plan the next move as things slow down to make an allowance for this. Money making opportunities are plenty so it could mean planning a career move or a business strategy. And for some it may simply be finding the best wellness plan to follow. There is no hurry to settle on second best and be pressured into making a rash decision. Make it clear to everyone what your self- worth and take charge. Well done dear Libra!
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
The mission for Scorpions this month is to give your life a complete engine overhaul. This encompasses all aspects including career, business, health and relationships. It’s time to let go of the old and start anew. The only issue here is where to begin? This sense of confusion will ease up as the month progresses with a step by step plan put in place. Being strong willed characters, Scorpions waste no time in putting things into action.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Sagittarius invincible attitude is contributed by Jupiter covering its back this May. No time is wasted in making to move forward. Realisation sets in that a solid foundation is important and work hard to remove any issues in the way towards this. A very methodical and swift approach is put in place to achieve the best possible outcome.
Feeling overwhelmed is the dis-ease for May. There are just too many ideas and/or solutions to make sense of resulting in a feeling of being stuck in a rut. Things aren’t moving as planned and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel seems impossible. A decision on a solution needs to be made quickly! Unfortunately the appearance of the Mercury retrograde offers no help in this department. Acknowledging this dis-ease and feeling of being stuck in a rut is the first step towards getting things in motion. The saying ‘When things get really bad, then the good must be around the corner’ will really ring true this month.
It’s going to be a lovely time for Aquarius this month. A rather positive outlook will be waiting at the end of the month. The focus will be on idea nurturing and creating a heart mind balance. Realistic expectations will be achieved. This so called ‘new found sensibility’ brings around good news in terms of career and/or business opportunities. It seems this process has already been put into motion and this will be the month of fine tuning it to get things right.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
There will be some family financial commitments that will the Piscean attention this May. Making rash decisions is not advised as a lot seems at stake here. On the whole avoid being overwhelmed by the situation and keep a clear head and the month should breeze by.
