Aries (March 19th – April 19th)
It wouldn’t matter if the sky were falling this month, Aries ’cause “you got this” as the slang saying goes. Therefore, do not be too surprised if things do begin to topple down around you. You may walk through the rubble with ease, resourcefulness and grace. You might be feeling pretty sexy while you’re at it too. The main problem is that some people feel threatened by just how cool you’re keeping under heat and pressure. Perhaps this is a good time to help others in need.
Taurus (April 19th – May 20th)
This is a very interesting time for you. Nostalgic, romantic, poetic…in your daydreams or in actuality you could stumble upon a very old treasure chest containing precious jewels you forgot were accessible to you. This is a month when you can release a lot of your fears and worries and trust a turning of events in your favor. Many things that began late April will be influential through the rest of your year. What will you do with the precious jewels?
Gemini (May 20th – June 20th)
Although it might seem as though obstacles are standing in your way, if you take a step back with an objective view, you’ll be able to appreciate that you have really been making some huge progress in certain areas. What is required at this stage is patience as the all the kinks get worked out. From now until autumn season you are breaking free from some long-standing patterns that have gotten in the way of your success, love, life, and overall happiness.
Cancer (June 20th – July 22nd)
This May is a reflective yet harmonious month for you. You may be inspired to rid yourself of excess and anything that has bogged you down, so that your inner radiance can shine more brightly in the world. Your heart and mind may feel quite full as memories and wounds of the past rise up for healing and release. This is a time to both seek out and offer comfort and solace, and to express your love to one or many in all the ways that you are so moved to do.
Leo (July 22st – August 22nd)
You may wish to conserve some of your energy or resources this month, because conditions aren’t quite right for new investments or beginnings in general. Relationship dynamics with children or a lover may fluctuate between fantastic and infuriating. Your saving grace this month comes from your ability to channel your talents into the areas where they will bring the greatest reward or payback. Simple rituals in nature, getting in touch with your ancestral roots, immersing yourself in a culture that inspires you could be healing and uplifting for your soul.
Virgo (August 22nd – September 22nd)
If at all you feel stuck just remind yourself to keep moving forward, little by little at times, in leaps and bounds and others. If you can go with the flow of your own cycles and rhythms, you can avoid getting dragged along a path that does not serve you, based on other peoples’ desperate needs and dramas. It may be easier to let someone go that is unhealthy for you by moving away from a place that reminds you so much about them, at least for awhile.
Libra (September 22nd – October 22nd)
Communications could be explosive if you’re not careful this month, so remember the choices available to you in any annoying situations that arise. If work allows, it could do you a lot of good to get away somewhere for a change of pace or scenery. Spend time with friends, get into exciting and interesting activities. Whatever you do, find ways to keep your mind off of things that only bring you down. Keep focused on the positive and you’ll truly thank yourself later.
Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)
This month you’re best off if you have something to really sink your teeth into (without hurting anyone). It could be a great novel, a project you’ve been working on, the remodeling of a house or business. There may be a focus on property management, upgrades, or organization of your finances. If you experience a total reversal of plans midmonth it is likely because there is something better in store or the circumstances to carry them out will be more conducive later on.
Sagittarius (November 21st – December 21st)
This is a very hot month for you but you’re used to the heat, right? Initially you’re so on fire you might feel unstoppable and at times have the Midas’ touch. The catch is that you might suddenly feel torn in two radically different directions and need to make a choice that entails some degree of sacrifice. Passionate energies are running high, which can be good for sexual relationships. Body movements such as dance, jogging, or martial arts are recommended.
Capricorn (December 21st – January 20th)
This month there is an emphasis on softening your rough edges, whatever, wherever they may be. You are being put in touch with your maternal side and harmonizing of family relationships. If you are in a high ranking position of leadership, you must become more compassionate in your dealings with others. If you are working hard for minimal pay, then look to sources that nurture and fill you. Expand your capacity to receive what you need.
Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
Have you stopped recently to take inventory on what you are creating in your life? Taken stock of your resources, and receipts? Sometimes you don’t realize how powerful you are. There are some things you have hoped and wished for that are beginning to manifest but you mustn’t give up just because they’re not yet visible. Shadowy issues with father figures or men in general could be coming up for healing and release.
Pisces (February 18th – March 19th)
Following suit with last month, you may be inclined to show more assertiveness than usual this May. You will know when it’s appropriate and when it’s not to press forward. In some cases you definitely benefit from pumping yourself up. Other times you just need to lay low. There are significant changes that occurred recently that you still have not settled into. Surround yourself with the love and support you need to rise to the next level.
