May horoscope. Find out what destiny holds for you for the rest of the month.

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)

You’re happy to participate in neighbourhood activites this month or to help out where you can. Take care though, that you do not inadvertently part with cash or money that was set aside for an altogether different purpose.

This month’s memo: Beware of other people’s woes.

Birthday wish: To be persued.


GEMINI (May 21 – Jun 20)

What with your ruler, Mercury as well as energetic Mars moving into your sign this month, you may feel you’re the person of the moment. Try not to let this go to your head, as Mercury can trip you up when it goes backwards on the 19th.

This month’s memo: Stay level-headed.


CANCER (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

With gracious Venus moving into your sign on the 8th, you’ll feel like spending some money on your appearance and your wardrobe. Spend by all means, but with caution. Keep a finger on something that is brewing behind the scenes.

This month’s memo: Enjoy looking your best.


LEO (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

It’s an active month for your social life and you’re meeting interesting new people wherever you go. If you’re as sincere as Leos can be, you may find it hard to believe that some people can make up or fabricate stories.

This month’s memo: Be a little sceptical.


VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Up until the 19th, things are looking up in your professional life. With stimulating ideas doing the rounds, a sense of excitement is in the air. Beware though of Mercury, your ruler, moving backwards, rather consolidate your situation.

This month’s memo: Keep a critical eye on things.


LIBRA (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may find that you are preoccupied with a legal wrangle towards the second half of May.  Put up a good fight and don’t give up easily. Luckily, you’re the flavour of the month in your career, where you’ll find tremendous support.

This month’s memo: Be your charming self.


SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

An intriguing matter could see you spelbound this month, but if you suspect someone is spinning a yarn, then you’d rather want to be super alert during the second half of May. You’re a natural detective, so do what comes naturally.

This month’s memo: Trust your sixth sense.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might be amazed at how well you and your better half are getting along during the first half of May. Be aware though that a communicaiton breakdown is possible between you when Mercury goes retrograde on the 19th.

This month’s memo: Allow for the ups and the downs.


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Since you are a person who likes to take precaution, be alert that chaos might ensue at your place of work when Mercury turns retrograde on the 19th. Do the important things yourself instead of relying on other people to do it for you.

This month’s memo: It’s all about being organised.


AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You’re in a playful mood this month and finding just the right company to play along with you. However, too much of a good thing can also have a boomerang effect, so take a good
look after the 19th at your newest
best friend.

This month’s memo: Be wary of loud-mouthed people.


PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your enthusiasm for a new home project is reaching fever pitch this month. Yet, you need to tone down your expectations as you may be sorely disappointed if things do not work out like you have planned. Separate dreams and reality.

This month’s memo: Have a re-think.


ARIES (Mar 15 – Apr 19)

Your ruler Mars, glides into smooth-talking Gemini on the 12th. Although this does give you a momentary gift of the gab, what with Mercury also there, but in retrograde, you could be misdirecting your intentions this month.

This month’s memo: Just toy with ideas.
