May is a month of dealing with the material world around us, a month in which our relationships and sense of physical security are highlighted - it is a period in which we can expect sudden surprises and changes in these realms. This will invite us all to be a little more flexible and adaptable, and to find mindful balance both with Self and with the Other. This is also a month to to truly get in touch with our senses, to indulge a little, to revel in our wonderful physicality, and to perhaps live on the more delicious side of life.
Aries ♈︎ March 20-April 20
Much of the emphasis for the month ahead for you lies in the area of your career and finances, Aries. With the upcoming New Moon on the 5th, you face a brand new start financially - this can be a very positive beginning, and you could look forward to a raise, or even a promotion. Be prepared to be open to change, as there can be unexpected surprises coming your way. Later on in the month, a big financial or career decision will be made, which can place you exactly where you are meant to be - the invitation here is to believe in yourself, and keep the faith.

Taurus ♉︎ April 20-May 21
This is your month, Taurus. The New and Full Moon falls in your sign over May, which means new beginnings for you, as well as important releases. The spotlight is on how you present yourself to the world, and what it is you truly wish to bring and manifest into your life. Wishes do come true, if you believe in them, so make this a time of re-imagining who you want to be, and set that into action. Early on, you may be in for a surprise when it comes to your material resources, where you will be asked to adapt as flexibly as you can.
Gemini ♊︎ May 21-June 21
Things calm down a little for you as Mars leaves your sign mid-month, and heads into the watery realm of Cancer. This will loosely coincide with the Sun and Mercury moving into your sign towards the end of May, which sets the spotlight on you - you’ll feel more ready to be “seen”, allowing your ideas and skills you have recently learned to be appreciated and acknowledged. However, before that can happen, there may be a profound inner change that happens, getting you ready for this emergence. Go gently, allowing things to unfurl in their own time.
Cancer ♋︎ June 21-July 23
As Mars glides into your sign around the middle of May, you may feel a strong sense of drive, and you may pour more of your heart and soul into your efforts. It’s a fantastic time to accomplish things independently, giving you a great sense of achievement. Your emotions pull you to act, and you will feel a greater sense of wanting to care for those around you - new friendships can be made over the month, and you may encounter interesting and unusual groups or communities. Open mindedness towards your goals will be key, and allowing room for change will bring you great new horizons to look forward to.
Leo ♌︎ July 23-August 23
This is a month in which you can make great strides in your career, if you choose to allow for innovation and progress - and most especially, if you take a bit of a (mindful) risk! Quite early in the month, you face a positive new opportunity, whose effects can last a long time. Your special power this month is being adaptable to change, as this can open doors for you. Be ready to release and let go when it comes to a professional or personal area later on in the month, and your reward can be long term security and personal success.
Virgo ♍︎ August 23-September 23
As a Virgo, you are the most flexible of the Earth signs, and this month will allow you to show off how adaptable you really are. Beautiful alignments arise for you over May, giving you spiritual insight blended with passion and playfulness. This period invites you to soak in adventure, to stretch yourself and spread your wings a little. There will be ground beneath your feet even as you take flight, and you can develop powerful guiding philosophies to light your way ahead. Embrace a change in plan, as all will unfold just the way it should.
Libra ♎︎ September 23-October 23
This is a month of deep transformation, and the potential is for you to truly change the way in which you approach intimacy and relating as well as material habits. New beginnings can happen in these areas, and you can become much closer to the one you love, if you allow for adaptability. May asks you to shed any fears, especially those that are financial or material in nature, allowing room for growth. Being mindful of how you deal with your resources and how you share those, and being open to change, will be your tool for growing personally and romantically.

Scorpio ♏︎ October 23-November 22
This month throws the limelight onto your closest relationships. You may be pleasantly surprised at the turn of events when it comes to Love, so be prepared for a bit of positive change! This is especially strong at the beginning of the month, where you will be feeling very loved-up and new experiences may open for you. Consciousness around your desire for deeper commitment is a powerful tool to navigate you through this period, and by the end of the month, you should have what you desire most, balanced with a sense of independence and autonomy.
Sagittarius ♐︎ November 22-December 22
It’s a tempting time for you to indulge and spoil yourself, and well you should! This is very much your year, which allows for that extra personal attention just for you. May sees the opportunity for you to create great new routines that allow for greater flexibility in your day to day life. You may enjoy some pleasant, if unexpected, changes in your work environment, as well as growth in your personal romantic relationships. Smooth communication ensures an easy flow of ideas with your partner, which allows for excellent relating this month.
Capricorn ♑︎ December 22-January 20
This is profound personal period of change for you, and can be a time in which the reflections of the previous month can be the key to stepping into the path that you know you should be on. May sees you being led more by your heart than your head, and that emotional approach can be an excellent compass in defining your goals. Love promises to be birthed anew, and a deeper commitment can be made - although only after some much needed change happens in order to allow for this.
Aquarius ♒︎ January 20-February 18
You’ll be feeling a strong desire for a change of environment this month - and with you being such a powerful manifestor, becoming mindful of what you really need and desire is imperative for your future happiness. You may suddenly decide to move home, change your housemate or renovate, which may be initially chaotic but will calm down later in the month. Making a wishlist of your ideal situation will be an excellent way to create more of what you want.
Pisces ♓︎ February 18-March 20
This month offers a shift in the way you both think and communicate - it’s as if a blast of fresh ideas come your way, and you’ll be feeling extra inspired to put those ideas to paper. May can be a time of great learning and great enjoyment of exploring the world around you. In fact, you can be so inspired that you may need to slow down and mindfully prioritise all your ideas so that you can get around to them, one by one.
