Monthly Horoscopes May 2021

Aries (March 21st - April 19th)

It's time to consolidate all of the new activities that started recently. Planets have moved out of your Zodiac Sign and into down-to-earth Taurus. So now you need to get practical. Basically, you may count the cost of anything new taken on board. Can you afford to keep going, or do you need to discard some of your plans? Budgetary concerns are highlighted in May. This month also sees a young man enter or leave your home, or some such event that requires a burst of energy in your home and family life.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)

So many planets in your Zodiac Sign are the impetus for a makeover. This could be a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual conversion. The idea is that you take some previous "me-time" to look after yourself, rather than focusing on others. Beautification is the name of the game. This means that you slow down and smell the roses, and enjoy all that life has to offer. The planet of love and money is just one planet in your Sign, heralding good fortune in these areas. Make the most of the opportunities that come your way.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)

Rest and recuperation are the order of the day, or month. Busy Geminis usually equate the word "rest" with "boredom", but this does not need to be the case. The idea is that you undertake activities that help you regenerate, rather than ones that drain your energy. It's time to start some simple breath exercises, or to go for a walk after dinner. Your mind is likely to be active, with plenty of creative ideas. Just make sure that you plan some time for restful physical activities, so that your mind is not racing ahead too far.

Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)

Your social life takes off this month. Celebrations and commemorations with friends and family dominate. It's also possible that you embrace a new network of friends, or join a club or group that is close to your heart. Perhaps this all leads to you seeing yourself in a new light. It's time to assert yourself and pursue some of your own hopes, dreams and wishes instead of always nurturing other people's. The feisty planet Mars in your Zodiac Sign is also likely to give you an energy boost. Make the most of the doors that open now.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)

May sees you in the limelight at work. Your focus is on getting ahead in your career, either through hard work or by receiving recognition for past efforts. If you don't receive the appreciation that you believe you deserve, then you are likely to look for alternative employment. You are eager to pursue your ambitions. Your working life is your main focus, but your primary relationship may also need some attention. Your commitment to a partner is also under scrutiny in May. Perhaps your work and your partner are linked in some way.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)

You are at your best when focussing on the minutiae, but this month the planets are urging you to see the bigger picture. It's time to expand your horizons, to go on an adventure. This could involve travel, sports, religion, teaching or academic study. If none of these are possible, then you need to embrace the university of life. How can you rise above everyday matters, and broaden your mind? You need to make decisions, or take action, before the end of the month when your ruling planet Mercury goes Retrograde calling for more introspection.

Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)

Cycles of change are sweeping your way. As a result, you may like to assess how you invest your money and your time. Which is more precious? How do you value your time and money? Are you heading in the right direction? May sees you make positive changes as a result of your evaluation of life in general. You may seek counsel if you are unsure of which path to take. This can be a profound month of self-discovery, and a resultant embracing of beneficial changes in your life direction. Make the most of the opportunities that come your way.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)

How is your love life? Planets are aligned in the marriage sector of your Solar Chart indicating that love is in the air. First things, first, do you love yourself? Not in the egotistic sense but rather in the self-love is healthy sense. Show yourself some tender loving care, and then it's time to date, mate and relate. Business and other contracts are also highlighted. If you have been waiting for a deal or contract to go ahead then you are likely to get the green light this month. Make sure to seal the deal before Mercury goes Retrograde at the end of the month.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)

Some months are all about daily duties. This may sound dull, but there's no reason why you can't make it fun. The idea is to attend to the tasks that need to be carried out, rather than put off. This could include making appointments with health professionals, taking your pet to the vet, cleaning your windows, or tidying your desk at work. So, take out your diary, pick up your phone and start tackling any backlog of chores. If life seems a little dull, then you can always reward yourself for a job well done.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)

May is a creative month for Capricorns. Creativity comes in many forms. It could mean that you are ready to tread the boards, trip the light fantastic or sign up for a class to become the next Van Gogh. Or it could be that you are ready to use your imagination in your field of interest. Mathematics, economics, astrology and humanity all form patterns that are part of a greater design. This is your month to discern your place in the scheme of things, and to have some fun. There is no need to strive, just go with the flow.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)

The focus is on your home and family during May. Household members may come and go, home appliances and structures may need fixing, or you could be planning major changes in your living quarters. Redecorating, renovating or relocating are all possible. It's also conceivable that extended family members require your assistance. Someone might surprise you with a visit, or perhaps you are planning a stopover. It's time to ascertain who are the friends and family members who underpin your life. The idea is to ensure that your private life is supportive, standing you in good stead for future ventures.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)

May gives you a hint of positive things to come as the lucky planet Jupiter dips its toes in your Zodiac Sign. Jubilant Jupiter is strong in Pisces and so the planetary gods are smiling on you. All that is required is a positive mind-set. You need to ensure that you keep an open mind, keep your connections positive, and concentrate on positive thoughts. A short break or trip may also be refreshing. Connections with siblings are also highlighted this month. It's time to recharge your emotional, mental and spiritual batteries, and to ensure that your physical energy is boosted.
