What’s in the Stars for you this month:

There was said to be a sign above the entrance to the Oracle of Delphi – it read “Tempet nosce” – “Know thyself ”.

Astrology affords a unique view into your inner world, as the planets and signs are archetypal signposts to the riches of human experience.

There’s a lot of information that can be gleaned from the Sun sign alone, however if you really want a picture of your full potential in any area of life, then check out my other readings.

Monthly Horoscopes May 2019

Aries (March 21st - April 19th)

News connected to personal money matters surprises you this month. This could be in the form of a positive boost to your income, or perhaps an unexpected bill arrives in the post. Either way the trick is to go with the flow, adapt your plans and make a decision about the best way forward. It is also possible that a sibling catches you off-guard with an announcement. Once again your thoughts may be better kept private, while you wait for a more conducive time to speak them. Your words carry more weight that you realise right now.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)

Something or someone is running amok in your love life right now. Secrets are simmering. On a positive note perhaps, you are planning a surprise for a loved one, something to spice up your love life. On the other hand, dirty little secrets could be your undoing. Make sure that you enjoy romantic liaisons that can only have a positive outcome. This is your time to advance your own personal happiness and health through love, pleasure and sensuality. If all else fails perhaps you can book a spa retreat?

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)

Your ruling planet Mercury is now heading in the right direction and while you may still be pondering your options, it is time to start networking. May sees you reach out to friends, support groups, clubs and through the social media to pursue a project close to your heart. It is time to pursue your hopes, dreams and wishes. As a result, your social calendar is likely to be full. Now is a good time to ensure that you keep tabs on your calendar – diary or wall calendar or your computer or online calendar. Juggling appointments is not your strong point so perhaps it is time for a personal assistant?

Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)

Most people have a private and a professional persona. As a Cancerian you are likely to be strong in your private life. Now it is time to think about your professional life, how you are perceived by the public. Your main role could be as a parent or caregiver, or you may have a chosen profession (or perhaps both). What do you need to do to achieve your professional goals? The planets are aligned in a way that encourages you to seek the advice of friends, join groups or perhaps expand your social media presence.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)

You are in for a few surprises or changes in your public life i.e. your role as a worker, spouse, or caregiver. Something or someone may disrupt your usual routine. The trick is to remain positive, something that you naturally do, and flexible. Try to see the big picture rather than sweat the small stuff. If the choice is between having fun and sweeping the floors then choose to play. Meditation, prayer, sport and cultural activities are also highlighted in May as ways of escaping the more humdrum duties. Your popularity stands you in good stead as always.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)

As a frugal Virgo you know the benefits of saving small change in order to invest in bigger things. You are adept at saving for a rainy day. This month sees you ponder how best to invest your time, energy and income. You may change the way that you currently do these things, or you could adopt a completely new habit. Taxes and inheritances could also be on your mind. If you have joint resources then now is a good time to reassess their value. “What is wealth?” could be a question on your mind right now.

Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)

You are more aware than most that opposites can attract. Right now, you are likely to be more sensitive to this adage than usual, either through your own or someone else’s love life. Your ruling planet Venus is in the opposing Sign of Aries highlighting your need to focus on your own personal needs when it comes to dating, mating and relating. Whether you are single or in a relationship, you may benefit from taking yourself on a date. Try to connect with some of the Aries traits of self-sufficiency, self-reliance and even become a little more selfish.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)

“Let’s talk about sex baby, let’s talk about you and me.” These lyrics could be your theme for May with planets affecting your Solar Chart relationship and intimacy sectors. This month is all about what you share with your one and only, if you have a one and only. If not then it is about contracts and investments. Surprises, good and not so good, are on the horizon through your closest contacts. Are you ready? You may need to fight for your rights. Scorpios are excellent strategists and so you can handle what comes your way.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)

Your ruling planet Jupiter is in Retrograde motion until August. This means that it is going backwards heralding a time of reassessment of your usual optimistic goals. Situations arise that require you to reconsider what supports your own health and happiness. You may need to make some changes to your own lifestyle. Daily routines need to support your goals. So, the first question is: “What are my goals”? “Next you need to ask: “What and who supports these goals?” and Finally: “What changes do I need to make”?

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)

This month provides you with an opportunity to rekindle your passion for a person or project. Your creative juices are flowing and you are ready to channel them into something close to your heart. Of course, as an ambitious goat your head will remain well and truly in control. However, it is time to make sure that your head and heart are in sync. You may notice that more children enter your life now as a signal that you need to live in the present moment rather than planning for a secure future. You may also receive invitations to artistic events, which also provide inspiration.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)

May see you more strategic than usual. You may retreat at times to consider your options in a particular project. Something or someone may take you by surprise at home. This could cost you more of your income than you had planned. Your private life is more prominent than your professional one right now. The trick is to make sure that you are flexible but not to go overboard when it comes to outlaying money. You may be a soft touch right now so be wary of those who could take advantage, particularly if they are close to home.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)

Your professional life receives a boost this month either through recognition from the boss, or a promotion or accolade within your chosen field. You may also receive news that comes out of the blue and challenges you to see things in a new light. If you are thinking of taking a short course that promotes your skills then May is a good time to do so. It is time to think outside of the square and embrace new ideas. The trick is to remain flexible, avoid being stubborn and to detach from emotional issues if possible.
