Horoscope for May 2018

  TAURUS      Apr 20-May 20                                                                                                                                                  You’ve been rethinking work, lifestyle or future goals for ages, but with limited results. The Taurus New Moon, on 15 May, brings a fresh perspective and progress. Add the arrival by Uranus, planet of innovation, also on the 15th, and there’ll be breakthroughs in both circumstances and your thinking. Some appear instantly, others will take longer. Equally, you’ll recognise the benefits of some immediately but as many will seem worrying if not a nuisance. Ironically, these could ultimately prove best. Knowing that, explore absolutely everything.

  Gemini    May 21 – June 20     While the changes, many unexpected, triggered by May’s dynamic planetary activity will delight you, that enthusiasm won’t necessarily be shared by others. Explore every idea or event. While some will be clear cut, a few will require serious investigation. What you learn will get you thinking, enough to make tentative plans. Still, ensure these are flexible, since the actual circumstances you’re dealing with will shift, often dramatically. Only once your questions are answered and ideas clear, should begin discussing them with anybody else.

However, disentangling yourself has been challenging. May’s powerful planetary activity promises action, although possibly not as you’d hoped. Still, since this is just the beginning of a cycle of dramatic change, explore everything, including seemingly questionable options. And with circumstances shifting for the rest of the year, take things in stages. This strategy will allow you to rethink plans, probably often.

However, this focus could mean you misinterpret the cycle of powerful change that begins in mid-April, with the encounter between your ruler the Sun and Uranus, planet of the unexpected. This intensifies during May, with events that open the door to yet more options, many surprising. Ordinarily you’d reflect on these, but the swift pace is encouraging you to take chances. If in doubt, remember, you’ll only regret what you didn’t do, not what you did.

Knowing that, regard plans, small and large, as an experiment, and give what you can learn priority over getting things organised. This turns this unsettling cycle into an adventure, one of almost daily discovery and, ultimately, exciting personal growth.

No longer. You’ve changed, more than you realise.

Your plans and perspective will remain unclear until the emotionally intense, and informative, Sagittarius Full Moon, on 29 May.

Waste no time trying to explain. Instead, do something out of character and focus on how you can benefit from these twists and turns. If others want to join you, welcome them. If not, say nothing. This exciting cycle is all about each individual discovering their own destiny, especially you.

Bizarrely, those matters you dealt with over the past months have freed you to take advantage of thrilling, if unexpected, events.
