Whether you’re a small-business owner or have other career aspirations, insights into how the planets influence your work month can help you plan for maximum performance and project success.
ARIES 3/21-4/19 Your financial situation this month is a carryover from April 15th and forward. Focus remains on $$ and catching up on pending accounts. It’s time to set up a more realistic plan. Summer requires a more conservative approach. In the second half of the month, you’ll find more support for your ideas. Light travel is indicated. Take it easy on expenditures, and focus on home and family.
TAURUS 4/20-5/20 May is another busy month of changing situations you may have not anticipated! Take a nimble approach to your weekly schedule and be ready to redefine the way you communicate. A certain last-minute compromise is needed to close a major deal. Caution: use a bit of control when extending any type of credit. By the 19th, go ahead and relax as plans move forward.
GEMINI 5/21-6/21 One of your most successful cycles begins later in the month. The art of communication is put to the test starting the week of the 19th. You can complete a project or an agreement by the 14th. A new opportunity can be put into action or prepared for as early as the 21st. Mars going direct later in the month brings more harmonious rapport. The end of May is ideal for taking a fresh approach.
CANCER 6/22-7/22 Take advantage of all the luck (opportunities) coming your way until July. You have easy access and little interference from others in reaching your goals. Persons involved in any real estate/home products or services show some gains now. Working behind the scenes can be productive. More research may be necessary. Others respond favorably to your ideas, particularly around midmonth. Just wait and see!
LEO 7/23-8/22 May offers more of a social setting after April’s intensity. Your gift of humor and clever rapport will work to your advantage when making presentations or submitting ideas. A pending issue can be concluded by the 14th. It’s best to make an important presentation when aspects are more favorable around the 19th. The week of the 21st is particularly productive.
VIRGO 8/23-9/22 Early in the month, issues may need your immediate attention as monetary aftershocks from April linger on for a bit. But you can easily recover after the 15th, and the rest of the month favors getting back on track and in touch with clients. You’ll get better feedback and plug into the community this month. Career/work changes accelerate with the New Moon on the 28th.
LIBRA 9/23-10/22 A new development emerges when the planet Mars goes direct on the 20th. You can take control and move ahead with greater confidence and more cooperation—finally making up for all that “waiting for things to happen” energy. Self-motivation and high energy has this May making up for some lost time or efforts. Days and weeks ahead may find you overworked, so pace yourself. Make time to network the week of the 20th.
SCORPIO 10/23-11/21 Get prepared for confrontations the first week. Thinking about refinancing or addressing a prior commitment? The good news is that by the Full Moon on the 14th, these issues can be wrapped up. For some, an important decision can be reached. You are in the spotlight, so expect less private time as your daily professional routine accelerates (that’s Saturn continuing to test you). After the 21st, coworkers and clients will be more cooperative.
Sagittarius 11/22-12/21 It’s easier to connect with others this month, and you have the freedom (your favorite word) to follow through on your own efforts. Arrange important meetings or presentations after the 14th. Frequent interaction with others may be required. The week of the 19th is extremely productive, so reserve that period for your most important communications; short travel assignments may also pop up. At the end of the month, you’ll get the good news you needed.
CAPRICORN 12/22-1/19 May always seem to work out to your advantage, and this year is no exception. Thinking about decorating or expanding? Go for it. If making a monetary decision or applying for a line of credit, go ahead and expect finalization by midmonth. A pleasant slowdown occurs the final week as the focus shifts to socializing.
AQUARIUS 1/20-2/18 Last month’s confusion and challenges should have concluded favorably if you were persistent. Now are ready to do some office politicking. Previously elusive opportunities will present themselves the last half of May. A trio of favorable aspects around the third week can have you more productive and making important contracts via events or meetings.
PISCES 2/19-3/20 Home or family matters may bring major concerns that affect your work. The good news is your monetary status is encouraging. Did your taxes show a refund or a favorable reduction? The planet Mars, associated with taking action, finally moves direct after lying low and things start to happen, from loans to applications to offers. Arrange meetings after 14th or, better yet, the week of the 20th, when people are more agreeable.
