How can you benefit when the Sun is in Taurus as it is for most of May? Taurus is ruled by Venus, which symbolises love, beauty, art and sensuality. Indulge yourself now; feast on yummy food, laugh heartily at a funny movie, spend time outdoors and experience the beauty of nature or treat yourself to a massage, a facial, a girlie shopping trip.

Taurus’ zodiac symbol is the bull and Taureans don’t waft around being ethereal and looking divine. Determination and persistence bring rewards; stay focused on your goals and refuse to take “no” for an answer. Loyalty and security count for a lot so look after the ones you love and respect family values.

May begins with five planets in Aries creating a whirlwind of energy and lots of excitement but by mid-month only two remain, Jupiter (faith) and Uranus (change). The personal planets, Mercury (communication), Venus (love) and Mars (action) steadily move in to Taurus allowing a quieter pace of life and time to reflect and contemplate. Here’s your individual star sign prediction for May.

zodiac symbol for TaurusTaurus (20 April-20 May)

An inner shift is underway. You feel things are changing in your life, moving you in the right direction. You’re on the verge of a new beginning that confirms who you really are. It may be about your name, your appearance or profile, even your mission in life and mid-month or early June you are ready to unveil the new you. In love? The two of you are on a similar path so be open to new experiences. Anything with a spiritual slant is perfect. Single? You’re destined to meet someone new at an alternative event, think meditation, tantra or internet marketing. Pencil May 23 in your diary as an extra special date for love when the heavenly lovers, Venus and Mars, unite in your sign of Taurus.

zodiac symbol for GeminiGemini (21 May-20 June)

Your friendships are due a shake up; boring is out, interesting is in. New friends introduce you to a different outlook on life, a new way of living. The club, group or society you join this month revolutionises your life or your relationship if it’s a new involvement for you and your other half. Align your social life with your beliefs and discover what you’re truly passionate about. Your planet Mercury is involved in a dance or dalliance with Venus, planet of love, as they brush past one another in the heavens. If you’re single, friendship develops in to something more; May 9-May 16 is highlighted. It may take you until June to decide what you really want but for now savour the experience.

zodiac symbol for CancerCancer (21 June-22 July)

Act fast if you want to make progress in your chosen career as the opportunities that are there for you early in May won’t be around for ever. This is a wonderful chance for you to expand your empire, go for promotion or marry in to money. That may all sound rather impressive but, in essence, anything is possible so think global, think big. There will always be a part of you hankering for a quiet life but you won’t make your fortune sitting at home. If family responsibilities weigh heavy, do what you can; www., the World Wide Web, brings the world closer in the comfort of your own home. Love may feel a tad practical but qualities such as loyalty and reliability should be valued highly.

zodiac symbol for LeoLeo (23 July-22 August)

A wave of optimism sweeps you along as May begins and new possibilities to do with travel, education or spirituality make life more meaningful. Many of you may feel as if finally you’ve discovered your true vocation. You know you’re on the right track when it’s as if someone switched the lights on, the clouds lift and your way forward is clear. This is where potentially the hard work begins but if your work or path in life makes you happy, you’ve every reason to feel pleased. In love, you want to feel stretched and a partner who teaches or inspires you stays the course. If you’re looking for love, ring the changes and go for someone who’s not your usual type. You will be amazed.

zodiac symbol for VirgoVirgo (23 August-22 September)

The money you share with other people, your partner, an ex, banks and institutions, is undergoing a revolution. There’s a chance to free yourself from a debt or association that’s been a weight on your shoulders for some time. You may decide you’d rather live on less money if it means loosening an emotional or financial tie. It all depends on your personal situation but it’s a symbol of letting go. May 11 is a turning point as the news or cash you’ve been waiting for since late March finally materialises. For some, a partner’s good fortune helps you both and yet you don’t want to feel indebted to anyone. A holiday or trip away is much needed so wear your thinking hat and make it happen.

zodiac symbol for LibraLibra (23 September-23 October)

The spotlight’s on love whether you’re in or out of a relationship, married, divorced or dating voraciously. You may feel pressure on you to get things right this time around or urgently desire to meet someone or to move a relationship on to the next stage. Being happy in your love life is important but be realistic about what love can offer rather than create a romantic ideal that’s unattainable. What takes place mid-month will help determine where love’s at and for some, talk of moving in together or pooling resources creates a new level of security. If love’s not your thing (unlikely for a Libran!), it may be a business partnership that produces a warm glow of financial satisfaction.

zodiac symbol for ScorpioScorpio (24 October-21 November)

If it’s been a hard slog since January, hard work  begins to pay off and you can reap your rewards. Early May is the perfect time to showcase your talents, launch your website or start your new job. You are independent by  nature but you can achieve more if you create partnerships with people who complement your skills. Two heads are better than one and collaboration and compromise become your buzzwords. Personal relationships prosper, especially from mid-month, and together you’re bigger and better than you are on your own. Love feels solid and mature. Single? You won’t be single for long with a Full Moon in Scorpio (May 17) and Mars embracing Venus (May 23).

zodiac symbol for SagittariusSagittarius (22 November-21 December)

Hopefully you’re in high spirits as the month begins and May’s stars put a spring in your step and a smile on your face. There may be good reason to celebrate whether it’s a blossoming love affair, a new baby, a pregnancy or a creative endeavour; success and jubilation are on the cards. The only regret concerns a friend for whom life isn’t so rosy. Don’t brag about your good fortune but be caring and considerate instead. Living in the moment and enjoying yourself is great fun but most of us have to work hard for a living and the full moon on May 17 heralds a shift in your lifestyle. Expect more work, a busier routine and a desire to get fit after the excesses of your party-going ways.

zodiac symbol for CapricornCapricorn (22 December-19 January)

It’s time to wrap up developments and plans regarding your home or family. Finalise a move of residence or create more space for yourself or your growing brood. If you’re celebrating an engagement or wedding, it will be a party to remember. There’s magic in the air on or around the full moon mid-month and what takes place on the weekend of May 20-22 could be extraordinary. This is the stuff dreams are made of and whether it concerns a child, a love affair or a creative talent, the results promise to transform you.  December birthdays may not agree as you’ve had to deal with the dark side of Pluto, God of the Underworld, but hopefully a glimmer of light breaks through.

zodiac symbol for AquariusAquarius (20 January-18 February)

Life is for learning and, whatever your age, you may feel as if you’re on a steep learning curve with no end in sight. Certainly this is a peak period to brush up your qualifications and to study something new but it’s just as important to have an end goal in mind and know what you’re working towards. You may find yourself hecticly busy as May begins, forever rushing around. Don’t rush when you meet new people, as you will do this month, for you can learn as much if not more by talking with others as you can with your head in a book. In love? Now’s the time to sort out your living arrangements and make plans together. Looking for love? Take a trip down memory lane and reunite with old friends.

zodiac symbol for PiscesPisces (19 February-20 March)

Money makes the world go round and as May begins, there’s a flurry of excitement that’s cash-related. Jupiter’s the planet of prosperity and with one more month to go in your finance zone, it may be hard to resist a flutter, gamble or financial speculation. May 11 looks especially lucky and at the very least there should be some good news regarding money you’ve been waiting for since late March. If you do receive a bonus or cash boost, think about improving your mode of transport or communication. The more mobile you are from mid-month onwards, the easier your life will be. If you’re looking for love, don’t search far and wide. True love lies closer to home than you realise.

Aries (21 March-19 April)

May marches in with a fanfare of bluster and noise bringing good times and an excuse to celebrate. Jupiter, the feel good planet, races through Aries with one more month to go. This is your best chance to show off, be loud, proud and daring. Self-promotion is the name of the game. Jupiter makes freedom and adventure attractive and you have no time for anyone who clips your wings or holds you back. A few wins come your way so, as life starts to settle down mid-month, turn your attention to finances. Money mastery is your new mantra and an opportunity to make more money is coming your way soon. In love, as in life, you crave excitement now and expect a lot from your partner.
