ARIES: (Mar 21 - Apr 20) ”King of Swords”
Seeking out professional advice or the ministrations of a qualified therapist Aries may not come cheap but will prove money well spent in the weeks and months to come. Perhaps you’re too close to a troublesome situation to see what needs to be done to resolve it fairly and completely? If life has been getting you down, perhaps in the workplace or family related, then there is no shame in seeking therapy and solace from those qualified in providing you with what you need to restore your sense of wellbeing, physically, emotionally or mentally. Word of mouth recommendations will introduce you to the practitioner most suited to your needs.
TAURUS: (Apr 21 - May 21) “Three of Pentacles”
Think, act and behave confidently in financial matters in May Taurus, as there is promise of advancement in your job or career. Be bold in revealing your ideas regarding a possible business venture especially if you are hoping for the support of investors. Your future appears to be in favour with the Universe this month so push forward and, if necessary, refuse to take no for an answer. Your words have the power to convince others that what you hope to give ”birth” to is not only possible but achievable within a certain time frame. Believe in yourself and they will too.
GEMINI: (May 22 - June 21) “The Tower”
May might bring you much more than you bargained for Gemini so be prepared for major life changes. You may not necessarily welcome what happens to knock you off course but there is no avoiding what is meant for you, which may have been brewing for some time. You will be asked to examine and reconsider aspects of your life as you know it and consequently required to come to terms with what’s just happened and cope with the aftermath. However, just like the phoenix, you have the opportunity to rise from the ashes, bigger, brighter and better than before. Consider it a blessing not a curse and you’ll be ok.
CANCER: (June 22 - July 22) “The High Priestess”
Awareness! Understanding! Possessing the ability to truly see your life for what it is Cancer is your blessing in May. Suddenly being able to rise above and survey what your days involve, e.g. family life, relationships with work colleagues, social life, beliefs, etc., may help you realise just how truly blessed you are. Your intuition will be heightened so pay attention what you “feel” and act accordingly. Your spiritual insight may prove a godsend to someone looking to you for the comfort your words and/or actions can provide for them.
LEO: (July 23 - Aug 21) ”Five of Wands”
Is it you at odds with others Leo or just with yourself? Whatever it is, something just is not gelling for you and it is frustrating the heck out of you. Perhaps your fiery energy is preventing to you from listening and acting on some good advice? You may be feeling that nobody is listening to what you have to say and, instead of quietly bringing them to order, you’re losing your temper. Tut, tut! The situation is easily rectified if you calm down, count to ten and then say what needs to be said. Simples! There is so much that can be achieved this month just by agreeing to disagree and getting on with it. You catch more flies with jam than vinegar, but then you know that Leo.
VIRGO: (Aug 22 - Sep 23) ”Justice”
May brings you the justice you deserve Virgo, whether it be in your job/career, a relationship, family matters, business dealings, etc. Legal papers, contracts, perhaps an adoption being finalised, anything that benefits and brings you a happy conclusion will have you punching the air and shouting “yes!” I feel this will likely be around the 11th of the month, certainly the second week of May into the third week, so the end of the month will see you move into June less stressed and worry free. Plans can be made for the future in the knowledge that you’re on the right track and Justice has your back.
LIBRA: (Sep 24 - Oct 23) “The Fool”
Ooo, be excited Libra, be very excited and optimistic about what May has in store just for you. This wonderful card indicates treading a new path, taking a leap of faith if you like into the unknown. Yes, I know that sounds a wee bit scary, but doesn’t it also sound just a tad exciting? This opportunity, or perhaps opportunities, will tempt you to forsake your comfort zone with the promise that whatever lies over your personal horizon bodes well for you. It’s time to see and experience what’s out there as, if you don’t and cower in the hidey hole you may have created for yourself, you may regret it. Just saying….
SCORPIO: (Oct 24 – Nov 22) “Eight of Pentacles”
Being focused and working hard to further your career or a relationship is what motivates you in May Scorpio. Everything you do comes from the wishes your heart makes. It may feel as if your quest is never ending but this is certainly far from the truth as your endeavours from the very beginning have been witnessed and appreciated. However, if you’ve been guilty of burning the candle at both ends this may have led you to unintentionally neglecting your self-care. So ensure you get a good night’s sleep, arrange to spend time socialising with family and friends, book a spa treatment (or 2 or 3), or just chill out with a cuppa, cake and a good book. Put yourself first for a change. Return to work refreshed and raring to go.
SAGITTARIUS: (Nov 23 - Dec 22) “The World”
Travel is indicated for you this month Sagittarius and not only in the literary sense but also in your plans for the future. Your physical travel plans will involve long-haul journeys probably by air, to far-flung corners of the Earth, places you’ve always longed to visit and explore but perhaps only now have the time or the means or both. Otherwise, May finds brings you forward movement and success in business ventures, your employment, relationships and health. In fact, all areas of life as you know it. There may be an award ceremony where you are recognised and rewarded for achieving a goal. Your time to enjoy the spotlight and bask in the warmth of the adulation of others you may have long sought to impress. Well done!
CAPRICORN: (Dec 23 - Jan 20) ”The Star”
Expect to be more emotionally in-tune with those around you Capricorn in May. You may feel unusually vulnerable spiritually as your intuitive gifts are to the fore. Avoid exposing yourself to negative people or situations as these will severely impact on your sensitive wee soul and have you searching out a safe space to retreat to. In fact, by organising a few days away alone, or with a like-minded friend, at a spiritual retreat may prove just what is needed to restore your ability to fight your corner should you need to. Don’t allow others to overwhelm and guilt trip you with their worries or problems. Spending time in nature in the moonlight will help ground and “earth” you.
AQUARIUS: (Jan 21 - Feb 19) “Eight of Cups”
Feeling despondent due to another relationship biting the dust? Fed up and doubting you’ll ever meet “the one?” That’s perfectly normal and, let’s face it, we’ve all been there at one time or another, some more than others. However, the outlook for the future is not as dire as you may think. Occasionally, the Universe, Karma, Fate, whatever higher power you personally believe in, has plans for you and, in order to bring “the one” forward they do what they must in removing whoever is standing in the way. Which makes sense although you may not see it that way because they haven’t written, emailed, ‘phoned or texted to explain what’s going on. Accept what is and trust that who comes next may be a gift from that higher power just for you. Let them take the trash out when they need to.
PISCES: (Feb 20 - March 20) “Queen of Cups”
You may be offered the hand of friendship by a kind, compassionate woman this month Pisces. Alternatively, it may be you who reaches out to someone else. Someone you realise is struggling in a situation where they need a shoulder to cry on, comforting and kind words, someone just to give them reassurance that everything is going to be ok. I sense this may relate to a female family member, and that she may have been experiencing problems for some time but only now feels able to truly confide in someone else. Your ability to empathise and console may unleash pent up emotions so ensure you don’t get swept away by using your ability to think outside the box as your anchor. Have the kettle on and tissues at the ready. You’re going to need them.
