Aries (March 20 – April 19)

For the past week or so, you have been avoiding even mentioning certain potentially unsettling issues, mostly because you have been told certain individuals are anxious about discussing these. Still, the matters in question cannot be ignored. The solution? Raise them, then begin discussions gradually.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

As a practical and cautious earth sign, you would rather avoid making a commitment you are unsure about than discover that it was unwise. Yet, at the moment, you have certain options exciting but remain short of facts. Take things slowly, and explain the reason why. Others will be as helpful as they are understanding.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

While you’d think that the term “agreement” and what it indicates others are committing to seems clear cut, at the moment that is by no means the case. In fact, while you are continuing to explore exciting options, certain people insist plans are settled. Ignore them. Events will soon prove how right you were.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

As a Cancerian, you are ruled by the Moon, which accents all those elements of life that are shaped by nature’s cycles. You may already be aware this isn’t just important, it’s a topic for discussion, in a range of settings and among all sorts of individuals. Including you. Ensure you join in.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Things are moving slowly. Those who know you well are expecting you to be displeased if not irritated with this, which is part of your character as an impatient fire sign. Still, if you back off and observe the process, you might even find you rather enjoy having to wait and watch.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Those born under the sign of Virgo do not only enjoy lending a hand to those in need, they learn from the experience. However, things are so complicated that even you could struggle. You may not be feeling patient, but it’s your only option. Within days that patience will pay off.

Your horoscope for the whole of May

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

As a Libra, you have a strong sense of which plans will work easily, as opposed to those that are bound to cause problems. This is the case now. Tempting as it is to discuss your thoughts with others, at the moment it would only confuse matters. For the time being, keep your thoughts to yourself.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

The last thing you are in the mood to do is rethink arrangements you have already struggled to organise. While that is understandable, with the foundation on which these are based shifting, suddenly and dramatically, changes of this nature are not only inevitable, they are in everybody’s best interests, including yours.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

If you are into astrology, you are probably already aware that as a Sagittarius, you are a quick-thinking fire sign, so also tend to make swift decisions. While often this works wonderfully, at the moment you’re short of facts. Instead, take things slowly. This may seem impulsive now, but within days you’ll be glad you did.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

As a practical earth sign, double-checking facts is natural to you, so much so you rarely think about it. However, with the foundation on which several plans are based shifting over a period of several weeks, it’s worth making a few changes. In fact, you’re better off adopting a more flexible approach.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 17)

Most Aquarians are popular with others, simply because, of the 12 signs, you have a genuine interest in the individuals in question and what they are doing and thinking. This comes naturally to you, so you don’t really think about it. Still, bear in mind it’s rare, and a charming, characteristic.

Pisces (February 18 – March 19)

Although the actual Full Moon has taken place, the odds are good you’ll still be wrestling with the emotional ups and downs it triggered, and not just in you but in others as well. Tempting as it is to talk things through, however, for now, keep your thoughts to yourself.

If it's your birthday on...


Judging by the amazing planetary set-up on your birthday, you’ll be exploring the remarkable ideas and offers coming your way. However, you’ll be overwhelmed. The secret? Forget about decisions. Instead focus on learning from experience itself.


The ideas and offers coming your way are promising yet overwhelming. Obviously you must make a decision. Actually, forget about saying yes or no and instead make it clear that you’re eager to learn more, but from experience itself. Then do exactly that.


True, you’re eager to explore the current cycle of amazing developments. But others want decisions. Tell them that you have lots to learn and, because of that, the individuals in question will just have to wait. Then plunge in, and make the best of this amazing cycle.
