Monthly Horoscopes May 2022
Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
It’s not like you to hide your light under a bushel but the planets are calling on you to lay low for a while. It’s not that you are inactive but rather than you need to be preparation rather than presentation mode, so to speak. It’s possible that external forces are requiring you to retreat momentarily. You are planning your strategy or working on a project that slows your social life. You may also benefit from looking at your finances – your budget, income, expenditure and your money habits and beliefs. A money bootcamp could be the way to go.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
This is your month to shine. You need to swap your bedroom slippers for your party shoes, or perhaps some hiking boots. Action is called for. You are eager for change. You may even feel an unusual spontaneous urge for a makeover. The idea is to step it up a notch, enjoy yourself and mingle. Your social calendar fills up fast so make sure that you are connecting with like-minded people. Romance is also in the air. Singletons look for someone special, while Taureans in partnerships look to create some spark. Be spontaneous and the fun and romance flow.

Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Sometimes the couch is more inviting than prospective social events. Your natural Cancer Sun nature is like our symbol the crab. You just want to hunker down under the sand (or bed covers). The month of May calls on you to step out and about. You could go all out and put on your dancing shoes and party, party, party. And perhaps even put a few pics up on social media. Or you could simply network with like-minded people, for business or pleasure. You may even hear from an overseas connection. It’s time to pursue your own dreams and expand your horizons.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)

If you are in business then this is an ideal time to visit or revisit your vision or mission statements, as well as how you invest your time, energy and money. It’s all connected and you can see this emerge with clarity. As you ponder the meaning of life and its patterns, you may start to realise that its time for a change of scenery in one or more areas of your life.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
How is your love life going? Or more specifically how is your relationship status? It’s time to get serious about personal connections. This is not about romance although that could be sparked. It’s more about commitment. Singletons you need to consider your relationship options. Are you happy with your single status or does it need to change? Virgos already in partnership, you need to focus on your union. Are you happy? Do any relationship issues need to be discussed? Do you have the right balance in your partnerships? Business partnerships may also be under scrutiny.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
The Nike slogan “just do it” is your slogan for May. As a Libran, you can be one of the great procrastinators of the Zodiac. You have the best of intentions and great vision but where to start is the question. This month start you must. Start small, but start. As entrepreneur Denise Duffield-Thomas states no more procrasti-cleaning, procrasti-tidying, or procrasti-planning. You need to take action on a daily basis. It’s time to observe how you invest your time, energy and money and take steps to change your habits. No more fence sitting. Tiny steps will do. Aim for action, not perfection.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
You need something or someone to light your fire this month. The planets are urging you to find and follow your bliss. This could be connected to an artistic project that ignites your passions, or to a person who is central in your life. Your need to find your muse and create some magic. If you are just not feeling it, then spend some time with small children. Watch how they play in the moment, using their imagination and letting their feelings flow. Try it for ourself and note your feelings. What or who gives you joy? Follow that.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Lifestyle matters are highlighted in May. It’s all about your work/life balance. You are likely tweaking your daily life so that you have more time for your home and loved ones. You may start a home decoration project, or perhaps a plan to work from home. This is also a good month to seek ways to improve your health and well-being, and that of your family. You ruling planet Jupiter start the month in a dance with the planet of love, Venus. So, these changes may also ultimately boost your finances and your love life. Happy days!
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
If you have wanted to start a creative project and wondered when was the right time then May could be your month! Writing, painting, designing, coding, debating, dancing, acting, and signing are just a few suggestions. Your budget is on your mind but uppermost is your need to express yourself. You don’t have to quit your day job but you do need to get started. Just do it and the ideas will flow. Listen to your sparks of intuition. If you are flummoxed as to where to start then listen to podcasts, read magazines and books, talk to friends, and all becomes clear.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
The planets are lined up in the private sector of your Solar Chart, lighting up household finances and family matters. It’s time to put your house in order. And this could mean looking at your budget, although you are more likely to err on the side of indulgence, luxury and spending rather than tightening your purse strings. This is true whether you live on your own or with loved ones. The theme this month is enjoying your personal space, improving your private life where necessary and indulging in a few more home pleasures. Let your home fires burn brightly.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Mindfulness is your theme for May. And perhaps also your mindset. Do you know your own mind, or are you too busy trying to go with the flow? This is your month to set a few boundaries that help with your own health and happiness. Take some time to know your own self. As ancient philosophy Socrates said: “To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom”. Reading, talking to others, and journaling could be helpful. Audio books, and podcasts may give you a boost. But mostly you need to be silent and listen to your own inner voice. And then set your limits.
