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

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)

This month’s memo: First impressions count.

birthday wish: a night out on the tiles.


GEMINI (May 21 – Jun 20)

Don’t count your chickens until they’re hatched, at least not until the 22nd, as connections may let you down, plans can go haywire and deals may fall through. Don’t lose heart, though. The rest of the month should be a breeze.

This month’s memo: Hang in there.


CANCER (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

For a true Cancer, family comes first, but this month it’s your friends who feed your soul. Appreciate their presence in your life and feast on their company. Also, take care of your friendships and nurture
their needs.

This month’s memo: Value your friends. 


LEO (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You’re in the limelight, taking centre stage. This is a prime position for promoting your ambitions, whether professionally or in terms of your social standing. Whilst actions speak louder than words, communication can be a help
or a hindrance.

This month’s memo: Shine.   


VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

May is a month to revise, rethink and re-organise, at least up until the 22nd, but it’s not the time for tunnel vision. Don’t allow mishaps and changes of plan to throw you off course, either. Keep the bigger picture in mind.

This month’s memo: Keep going.


LIBRA (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It’s a month to pay attention to everything shared with the significant other, whether on an emotional, physical or material level. Some soul-searching may be necessary in this regard. Make compromises and be fair, but also stand firm.

This month’s memo: Giving and taking.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Being the still waters run deep Scorpio is alluring, but it can upset the applecart. Since a lack of communication is currently the root of relationship trauma, this might be the case this month. Therefore, trust him/her with your thoughts.    

This month’s memo: Make your feelings known.


SAGITTARIUS  (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Pay attention to your health. As it is, a current slump in energy and lack of motivation could cause mayhem with your sense of wellbeing. Revise your lifestyle habits and keep up your fitness levels to beat the nearing change of weather.

This month’s memo: Make healthy choices.   


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

It’s time to let your hair down and have some fun. Don’t take life too seriously. Leisure and pleasure is what this month should be all about, so spend time on a hobby, play with your children or chat up a potential lover.

This month’s memo: Live a little.


AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Even though you might feel different from the rest of your clan, home is your haven and relatives your support. So don’t give family members the cold shoulder this month. Listen to their stories and pay attention to their dreams.

This month’s memo: Don’t keep your distance.


PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Reality deals a blow to unrealistic dreams and inflated expectations, so remove those rose-tinted lenses. Try to rid yourself of illusions and get your facts straight, whether in terms of a personal situation or a professional goal.

This month’s memo: Face the facts.


ARIES (Mar 15 –Apr 19)

Pay attention to your finances. It’s the month to revise your budget and investigate ways and means to get a good return on your money. However, it would be advisable to put financial transactions on hold until after the 22nd.

This month’s memo: Money management.
