The journey we are on at a core level is expressed by the qualities and lessons of our star signs. The Sun travels through the 12 in its yearly journey – from the perspective of the Earth – and they are divided into seasons and elements. It Starts with Aries at the spring equinox. We are all experiencing how and where we spend time in a very different way at present, so here are some nuggets of advice with a look at your personal star signs for the month ahead.
On the winter solstice we witnessed the Great conjunction – or Great mutation – of Saturn and Jupiter. This ushered in a new cycle, in society, with politics, reforms and with communication and technology. May encourages our soft side and nurturing instincts. The full moon lunar eclipse on 26th in Sagittarius, and with Mercury being inconsistent in its nature now, needs careful handling in our psyches. The new moon on 11th encourages new intentions. Follow them through!
Whereas the lunar eclipse on 26th can churn up a lot for us, it aspects well however with Aries people, bringing fresh air into your creative heart and social life. Things set into motion, including wishes and dreams, can come to fruition then.
Finances are to the fore in May. Values and inner resources also are so you may surprise yourself as to a growing shift of perspective regarding money and security. It is positive and shows you a new aspect of yourself.
Mars entering your zone of home- outer and inner – activates impulses to do with past memories and reflections. Emails, calls, letters from people warm your heart this month, and siblings, neighbours and the like are uppermost in your mind for contact and mutual help.
Your career arena of your horoscope is lit up this month with several planets aspecting it well. So what are your goals or aims now? Preparation behind the scenes pays off with Mars now in your ‘secret’ zone. Gestate the ideas and plans and as the month draws to a close you can manifest them.
After the 9th ideas come fast and meetings prove fertile ground for success. Any social meetings are also rich. After 21st when the Sun enters Gemini, friends and team work auger well. Any romance will be brought about through those meetings, whether on line or in person. Use the eclipsed full moon on 26th for romance and charm. Look forward and not back! This is a big time for a broader vision and thinking small doesn’t serve you now. Create a bigger aura around you – the world will love you for it.
May is always an interesting time for Sagittarius as it is your opposite and complementary month of the year and allows you to take a step back and look at things with new eyes. It also allows you to look at things through others eyes more! If working- self employed or employed, May this year will see new openings and possible advancement. Contacts are helpful and you will be thinking of learning something new and adding to your skills.Neighbours and or close relatives, surround you more and it will be hard to have ‘me’ time.

Most of May you can expect social and lighter hearted activities to emerge. This is because the Sun and Venus are happily tenanting your zone of ‘here I am’ energy. You may surprise others with your newly found spontaneity and panache.
Expect stimulating challenges from loved ones which keep you on your toes. This is timely as you all need to see new aspects of each other to grow and be closer.
