May 2008 Short Horoscopes
The following are short overview horoscopes for an upcoming month, written by Annie for Essential Magazine. For our detailed May monthly horoscopes, see Monthly Horoscopes from May 1st.
Your main focus this month, dear Aries, is on matters surrounding security, spending, and ownership. However, a sub-theme of May involves having fun, enjoying hobbies and other amusements, romance, speculation, activities with children, and general playfulness. The extrovert in you comes out to play. You have a strong sense of the dramatic now. You are likely to enjoy financial rewards from your career and work, particularly on the 1-2, 11-13, and 18. The need to be lenient with co-workers arises. Spontaneity is the key in May. Follow your heart!
May is a power month for you, dear Taurus. It’s time to turn on the charm, ask for what you want, and pursue your personal goals and desires. A romance or creative project moves forward after a lull. Job offers are likely to knock on your door. Opportunities to enhance your home also occur, and you are identifying strongly with your family. Clear up money matters in the first 3 weeks of the month, after which financial judgment is somewhat impaired. You make a distinct impression on others this month–put your best foot forward.
May is mentally stimulating for you, dear Gemini, but mostly quiet for the first three weeks. Feelings of being blocked by circumstances or others arise on the 3rd, and the urge to rest is strong. Its all systems go on the 22-24. Youre plugged in, talkative, and brimming with ideas. Avoid scheduling new endeavors on the 25-26, however. Pay attention to a fabulous idea on the 28-29. Walking or another form of routine physical exercise might help relax your mind. Health is strong and vitality is good in May.
You have been more assertive and driven in the past months, dear Cancer, but all that calms down this month as fiery Mars leaves your sign. You are more detached than you have been recently, and many pressures in your life lift. Overall, May is a pleasant month devoted to dreams of the future and friendly socializing. Partnership matters may have been strained, but begin to improve now. Watch for impulsive spending or disputes over money, particularly around the 22nd. You have more energy than usual to make money.
A more self-assured and assertive spirit grabs hold of you in May, dear Leo, after the first week of the month. You cant be ignored! The desire to move about, explore, and mark your territory is strong. Any efforts to restrict you will surely fail. Success is what you crave now, and you are willing to take all the necessary steps to get ahead. Recognition and reward comes on the 11-12 and 20-21. Avoid new initiatives on the 22-27. Any decisions made on the 24-27 in particular are likely premature.
An adventurous, “don’t tie me down” spirit gives way to a desire (or need) to take care of business in May, dear Virgo. You are in demand professionally. What you have (and haven’t) done comes up for inspection this month, so keep everything above reproach. Lay low on the 3rd and 24-26, however, when energies are confusing and you could inadvertently misrepresent yourself. If gossip flies, take the high road and let your behavior speak for itself. This is another first-rate month for love. Romantic matters are moving forward.
You are attempting to re-invent yourself this month, dear Libra, and the urge for self-transformation is strong. Wanting more from life is a theme now and through next month. May is a good month in which to borrow or to settle debts, if necessary. Either way, dealing with debt now tends to generate positive outcomes. However, avoid financial transactions, especially with friends, on the 12-14 and 25-26. Intimate matters are strong, but don’t try too hard to read between the lines with a partner. Romance thrives on the 17-18.
Focus this month, dear Scorpio, is mostly on partnering, sharing, and intimacy. Nevertheless, the demands of your work, and perhaps even the public, are large in May. This is a strong month for settling differences on a personal level, and for going after what you want professionally. Communication is key when it comes to dealing with sensitive issues with a partner. Impulsive decision making should be avoided on the 21-23. Confidence works on the job, but haughtiness doesnt. Love is especially potent on the 1-2, 12-13, and 17-18.
Nice opportunities with finances, work, and employment arise this month, dear Sagittarius. Practical matters are strong for you in May. Money matters move forward. Although gains are not necessarily explicit just yet, finances look more hopeful. Intellectual work and studies are favored this month. Towards the end of the month, partnering comes into focus. It’s a strong period for any kind of negotiation and smoothing over differences. The best periods for you this month occur on the 11-12 and 18th, when you should keep your eyes open for opportunities.
The first three weeks of May are mostly dedicated to enjoyment, play, and romance, dear Capricorn. Your charm is easy and natural. Pressures are easing in your life and you are coming out of your shell. The lines of communication are opening. Sexuality is strong, and tensions in a close partnership lessen. Making a point of getting out of the house and taking in plays, movies, and other forms of entertainment will do wonders. Learning new skills help improve your work, which will come into stronger focus towards the end of the month.
Activities in and around the home figure strongly in the first half of May, dear Aquarius. Less attention to career responsibilities brings you closer to your roots. Romance is hopping in the second half of the month, when play time is more important to you than usual. Youll have plenty of heated discussions with a partner this month. There will be times when you might find a partner is coming on too strong or pushing his/her own agenda at your expense. In the last week of May, be cautious with your money.
Plenty of visits, errands to run, social activities to attend, correspondence to write and respond to, and other busy activity is featured for the first three weeks of May. This month is a great time to tell someone how you feel, even if they already know it. Family members are friendlier to you now and news you receive is mostly pleasant. Love settles down and becomes more intimate. Avoid making important love decisions on the 25-26. Enthusiasm for work projects returns, and more diversity as well as opportunities occur on the job.
