Your Horoscope May 2017

Taurus (21 Apr – 21 May)

It’s a good month for playing around with ideas and exercising your creative side. Getting on with decorating projects on your own will be particularly satisfying. Be prepared for extra expenses mid month.

SELF-CARE: Set aside some time to recharge in beautiful surroundings.

PERSONALITY: The Taurus woman excels at creating a calm and comfortable environment around her. Material security and stable relationships are both essential to her serenity. She is a loving parent, partner and friend.

STRENGTH: She takes a common-sense approach to life, yet never forgets to savour simple pleasures.

BLIND SPOT: She can get so attached to her comfort zone that she misses out on opportunities.

INSPIRATION FOR THE YEAR: Change is part of the scene at work, so learn to negotiate the ups and downs gracefully.

GEMSTONES: Emerald and coral.

Gemini (22 May – 21 Jun)

Up until the 17th, it’s action time. As the pace is fast, you’ll need to think on your feet and multitask. After that you can breathe out and get on with activities that require concentration.

SELF-CARE: Release pent-up energy with a short, brisk walk.

Cancer (22 Jun – 23 Jul)

Taking the initiative in relationship building will bring positive results on the career front. Also, be open to innovative ideas. Around the 19th, negotiation is the answer to reaching agreement with your partner.

SELF-CARE: Gentle stretching exercises will help you unwind.

Leo (24 Jul – 23 Aug)

Pragmatism and patience are the keys to success this month. Avoid grand gestures and, when in doubt, stick to the basics. From the 20th, there’s more variety and light-hearted fun.

SELF-CARE: Slow the pace to make more room for the simple pleasures of life.

Virgo (24 Aug – 23 Sept)

Rather than over planning, leave room to be spontaneous. Around the 9th, accept change with a minimum of fuss. Any disagreements with your partner about shared responsibilities can be resolved by thinking outside the box.

SELF-CARE: You’ll reduce your frustration by being more assertive.

Libra (24 Sept – 23 Oct)

It’s a month for taking risks and returning to activities you’ve put on hold. Expect some fiery

discussions with people close to you. Rather than looking for agreement, respect differences.

SELF-CARE: Me-time is vital, so don’t always surround yourself with people.

Scorpio (24 Oct – 22 Nov)

As you’re not thinking clearly enough to make good decisions, keep your options open until after the 15th. Office life is going through a turbulent but exciting phase. Instead of jumping to conclusions, play a wait-and-see game.

SELF-CARE: Make time to drift and dream.

Sagittarius (23 Nov – 22 Dec)

Take advantage of opportunities to introduce changes. Listen when your partner wants a sounding board, but don’t impose your opinions. Parenting requires the skill of encouraging kids’ self-expression while teaching consideration for others.

SELF-CARE: You will find it therapeutic being in or near water.

Capricorn (23 Dec – 20 Jan)

Plan ahead, but be flexible so that you’ll be able to adjust quickly to new developments. Accommodating differences is a theme in the family. See any mistakes along the way as part of the learning curve.

SELF-CARE: As you need breathing space, ease up on rigid routines.

Aquarius (21 Jan – 19 Feb)

Grasp opportunities to visit places you haven’t been to before and encounter new people. Teaching, writing or doing presentations will go well. Enhance family communication by regularly sharing meals at the table without TV or screens.

SELF-CARE: Find fun activities that get you moving.

Pisces (20 Feb – 20 Mar)

Home life is busy, with plenty of variety. Listen to the urge to rearrange the furniture or freshen up your living space. Around the 6th, avoid expensive impulse buying.

SELF-CARE: Earthy activities like gardening, baking bread or working with clay will be calming.

Aries (21 Mar – 20 Apr)

You are headed for a stimulating month. Pay attention to seeming coincidences and don’t be concerned when detours take you o track. You’re not meant to be going in a straight line.

SELF-CARE: Take extra care with your appearance and revel in the compliments.
