Taurus Apr 22-May 21
This is one of the most important months of the year for your finances, property, charity or business. Seek the best advice you can afford, as you will need to make an important compromise and it will take many weeks. It may help to know you are in the toughest cycle for 29 years and once you have made a decision near May 25, you are over the hump. The key signatures or handshake agreement will come from June 7 to 21. Don’t rush this, or be pushed. Have a good plan.
Gemini ● May 22-Jun 22
Your profile, reputation, title, name or appearance will take up a lot of time in May. This may be because you need a new image, or are pursuing weight loss or cosmetic surgery. In other cases, you are determined to relaunch in a new role, or with a new brand, if your name is your business. To make life simple, slow down and cool down, even when you feel pressured. Your relaunch will come in time for your birthday in late May or June. If in doubt talk to an image professional.
Cancer ● Jun 23-Jul 23
Cancer the crab carries her home on her back in the form of a shell, and your abode, home town or homeland is extremely important to you. Do not be put off by any passing challenges in coming weeks as your vision of a bigger and better result is correct. The details may change between now and October, but you should be able to achieve stunning results in the end. Your career, course, unpaid work or full-time parenting brings radical changes in the first week. Don’t hang onto 2016. Choose freedom.
Leo ● Jul 24-Aug 23
You will need to put your friends and your group first in May, as you must all make a new agreement that is seen to be fair by everybody. Compromise as much as you can, but make sure that the set-up which arrives near the New Moon on May 25 is one you can live with for the rest of the year. Your patience will be worth it, Leo. If you give friendship the same attention and care as any other relationship, you will discover how powerful a united effort can be. Together you can move mountains, so be patient.
Virgo ● Aug 24-Sep 23
The relationship you have with your boss, lecturer, staff, classmates, colleagues or clients is at a crossroads in May. You may be affected by a reshuffle, or by a change in responsibilities affecting your role. Depending on your personal horoscope, there may be even more dramatic developments. Expect a fresh start in the final week. Everyone concerned will need to compromise and the adjustments will go on into early July, so don’t assume that everything must be decided in four weeks, despite the apparent urgency.
Libra ● Sep 24-Oct 23
Try to put foreign, cultural or religious differences to one side in May. You’ll need to come up with a new arrangement, so make sure it’s fair on everybody. This fresh set-up will have a lasting impact on your holidays, regional commitments, global interests, book, website or course. It may take a long time to balance the scales so, despite the fact you’re writing the first page near the 25th, it may take until July 9 for the chapter to be complete. Use feedback you receive from the final week.
Scorpio ● Oct 24-Nov 22
Perhaps others invested in you, or you invested in yourself. Either way, as the middle of the year appears, there are no shortcuts or easy answers.
This also applies to your possessions, tax, bank, house or apartment. Even though the crucial news, meetings or paperwork will not appear until after June 7, you can make life easier now by setting a sensible pace. You’ll need to make a compromise with others which everybody can accept. Ask yourself what you’re prepared to share or give.
Sagittarius ● Nov 23-Dec 21
This is the most important month of the year for your love life. The chemistry you share with your former, current or potential partner must be remixed, with a new formula by the last week of May. Try not to encourage any explosions. You two will make one decision in the final week of May, then spend June discussing the details. It is very important that both sides feel the scales are balanced between you. Careful negotiation brings rewards in July, no matter if you need to split, commit, or just make some changes.
Capricorn ● Dec 22-Jan 20
You will need to give your lifestyle most of your attention in May. Looking after your mind, body and spirit with equal care must come first. A new way to manage your 24 hours a day will be in sight by the final week, yet getting there will involve negotiation. Your work, unpaid work, university course or approach to housework will need to be managed differently, along with your sleep, fitness, food and health. Professional Capricorns can expect to see a reshuffle, merger, departure or arrival in their chosen field, which changes everything.
Aquarius ● Jan 21-Feb 19
The world of babies, children, Millennials or younger people in general is set to change your plans from 2016 and earlier. In some cases the issue will be a lover who wants children or has them from a previous relationship. This cycle is also associated with your child’s education, or the generation gap. Aquarius, the tension will disappear from one situation on June 4, so pace yourself until then. The best solutions will come from thinking calmly and at your own pace. A very different arrangement will arrive by July.
Pisces ● Feb 20-Mar 20
Home renovations, family changes, household reshuffles or even a major property move are all indicated by July, with the first big step in the final week of May. In other cases, the issue is your home town or homeland.
The written agreements or most important discussions will take place from June 7-20 and you can relax over winter. Do your best to keep the peace with people or organisations who push too fast or too hard. The right decision must be made carefully and thoroughly, so it is satisfying for all sides.
Aries ● Mar 21-Apr 21
You will be busier than usual with the media, the internet, writing, public speaking or education in May. One special project, course or idea will require a lot of negotiation, with a final result by July 9. Try to keep differences to a minimum and do not put anything in writing in the heat of the moment. This will make a fresh start much easier near the New Moon on May 25 when you will find many people are watching or listening. Do leave time and space in your diary for this plan as it needs 100 per cent focus.
