Horoscopes for May 2016
ARIES: 21st March - 20th April
Uranus’ Square with Pluto puts finances in the spotlight for you this month, and as his Trine with Saturn comes to an end around the middle of the month it may seem like you’re dealing with these frustrations all on your own. The difficulty lies within the feeling of change, or rather the feeling that you can’t change the financial situation you are in. Alternatively, personal growth can feel stagnant as you feel yourself hitting a ceiling that you can’t seem to get through. Allow yourself to understand on an internal level what this difficulty is trying to teach you. Pounding on the ceiling rarely ever works in a positive way, rather take the time to listen to your own inner voice. Your own intuition is showing you how to get through that ceiling, and the results will be awesome!
Lucky Days: 24th – 26th
TAURUS: 21st April - 21st May
Mercury’s Retrograde through the 22nd of this month is definitely causing communication delays all around you, but as the Sun, Venus, and Mercury take their places in a Grand Earth Trine throughout the month with Pluto and Jupiter, you’ll see just how much retrogrades are meant to push you forward rather than hold you back. As the month comes to an end and Mercury moves direct, his place in this Grand Earth Trine, along with his position with Neptune and Pluto in a Grand Sextile provides an energy that busts down doors and shows you how awesome you can be if you’re ready to own your own power. When it’s time for you to shine, only the brave step into that spotlight! If you don’t feel brave yet, it’s ok. Fake it till you make it!
Lucky Days: 26th – 28th
GEMINI: 22nd May - 21st June
Happy Birthday Geminis! The Sun and Venus move into your sign this month, and while you’re ready to feel like it’s your time to shine in the spotlight of life, that moment won’t come easily! And when you think about it, when does it ever come easy anyway? As the Sun and Venus move into Mutable Grand Cross position with Jupiter, Neptune, and Saturn, chaos may seem to be erupting all around you as you’re faced with challenges in many aspects of your life, but those who rise above the challenges are the ones who can take nothing and make it the most awesome thing they’ve ever done! Challenges are meant to make us stronger, so take time for you, remember to breathe, and tackle each thing as it comes along.
Lucky Days: 1st – 3rd , 28th – 30th
CANCER: 22nd June - 22nd July
Living life as a Cancer often feels like being the lone wolf, but this month love and support seems to come out of nowhere, surrounding you with the support and friendship you crave on a deeper level than you let on. As beautiful and wonderful as it feels to have this support, avoid the need to justify why you have it and instead embrace every awesome bit of this energy. Most of the time we find ourselves saying we don’t need the support in order to avoid feeling like we’re taking advantage of it. But this month is an opportunity to learn just how much you deserve the love being given to you, even if you didn’t really do anything to deserve it. It’s not about what you do for others, this month it’s about what others can do for you. Let it happen!
Lucky Days: 31st , 3rd – 5th
LEO: 23rd July - 23rd August
Showcasing your talents this month is an awesome way to show the world just how far you’ve come in your life, but sometimes even the most successful moments can have you feeling more like you’re faking it than making it. This process is helping you understand the deep emotional workings of yourself, bringing these feelings to the surface in order for you to face them head on. True this is a scary and often uncomfortable process, but as you face these parts of yourself you’re giving yourself the opportunity to understand these feelings better, and once you understand them you can come to terms with them. This process isn’t meant to tear you apart but it’s meant to make you stronger, and how you ride through the process determines which way you’ll go this time.
Lucky Days: 5th – 7th
VIRGO: 24th August - 22nd September
Jupiter goes Direct on May 9th, helping to eliminate the feeling that you can’t move forward in your goals and dreams no matter how hard you work at it. His placement in a Grand Earth Trine with Pluto, the Sun, Venus, and Mercury throughout the month is an energy that helps you understand your own power and tap into what you’re meant to do, and this aspect has you feeling like you can take on the world! But as his T Square with Saturn and Neptune turns into a Mutable Grand Cross toward the end of the month as the Sun and Venus move into Gemini, you may feel like you’re trying to reach your power through quicksand. Avoid letting the crazy around you decide what you can and can’t do. Keep your eye on the prize and don’t stop until you’ve reached the awesome conclusion you want to reach!
Lucky Days: 7th – 9th
LIBRA: 23rd September - 23rd October
This month as you find yourself being downloaded with ideas and your hands seem to never stop working away at your plans, it’s time to give yourself a break. We often find ourselves stepping back into a “simpler” time, either by watching old TV shows or doing things that bring back the feelings of a time when responsibility was a word we used for homework and that’s about it. Taking the time to do this is essential for your body as well as your mind. It gives you a chance not only to rest, but it’s also a chance to go back to the beginning and re-evaluate how far you’ve come. Doing this allows you to see if you’re on track with your original goals as well as identify some of the awesome detours you’ve taken. But the biggest gift is the chance it gives you just to take a break, because we all need one of those every now and then!
Lucky Days: 9th – 11th
SCORPIO: 24th October - 22 November
Mars moves back into your sign this month in his Retrograde position, and this may have you feeling unmotivated when it comes to turning some of your ideas into actions. Mars retrograde energy can be frustrating, because it seems like your pilot light has gone out and you just can’t figure out how to relight it. But along with the Dark Moon in your sign, Mars is coming in to show you how often this pattern takes place, and giving you an opportunity to handle this problem in a different way. Rather than allowing yourself to be unmotivated, take a few days for yourself, and once those days are over make a plan. Then take each step one small step at a time. Doing this works with the slower energy while still allowing you to get a lot of awesome things accomplished, and the accomplishments themselves speak louder than anything else!
Lucky Days: 11th – 13th
SAGITTARIUS: 23rd November - 21st December
Saturn’s T Square with Jupiter and Neptune becomes a Mutable Grand Cross as the month progresses with the addition of the Sun and Venus in Gemini this month. This type of energy can be chaotic and have you feeling like you don’t seem to have a handle on anything at this time. Saturn’s Retrograde positon in this aspect is helping you understand the chaos on a deeper level, showing you where you tend to make things chaotic, or where you tend to allow the chaos to come into your life when it’s not needed. Understanding this process is not so you can beat yourself up, but rather understanding it so you can make the positive change you need to make in order to replace the chaos with awesome progress instead. Avoid beating yourself up and embrace the lesson instead.
Lucky Days: 14th – 16th
CAPRICORN: 22nd December - 20th January
While Pluto’s Square with Uranus has you feeling the sting of financial restraints, his Grand Earth Trine with the Sun, Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter throughout the month opens up new doors to bust through those financial challenges in awesome ways, and his Grand Sextile with Mercury and Neptune provides the right relationships to make things happen. Focusing on the current difficulty won’t help you move forward at this time, but opening yourself up to new challenges not only helps you solve your financial worries, it provides new opportunities that you weren’t expecting. Avoid focusing on the difficulties as this will leave you blind to all of the other possibilities around you.
Lucky Days: 16th – 18th
AQUARIUS: 21st January - 18th February
As you spend the beginning of the month building relationships that mean something to your success, that awesome energy can be put into your schedule as the month progresses. Handling your day to day duties can be a daunting task, especially those things that need to be done but aren’t exactly things you want to do. Organizing your time is essential, especially if you want to get anything done! Take the time to get organized, do what needs to be done, or find the awesome people out there that are waiting to help you get these things done. You don’t have to do everything yourself, and this month is a great opportunity to see just how much more you can get done with a little bit of help from your “friends”.
Lucky Days: 19th – 21st
PISCES: 19th February - 20th March
As Neptune’s T Square with Jupiter and Saturn becomes a Mutable Grand Cross as the Sun and Venus move into Gemini this month, you’ll find yourself feeling like those you’re working with aren’t quite on the same page as you are, and lining anything up may seem difficult. But Neptune’s Grand Sextile with Pluto and Mercury has you taking a step back to evaluate those relationships, giving you an opportunity to understand how working with their personality makes things easier than forcing them to work with yours. Before you know it, you’re busting down those barriers as the true leader of this awesome network, leaving the chaos behind you as you go.
Lucky Days: 21st – 23rd
