May 2009: The signs of Aries and Taurus are emphasized in May 2009. Venus and Mars are moving through Aries, with Venus not very far behind Mars all month. Mercury turns retrograde in early Gemini on the 6th and then direct on the 30th at 23 Taurus. Saturn turns direct on the 16th. Jupiter aligns with Neptune on the 27th at 26 degrees Aquarius, just a day before Neptune is stationary retrograde. A Full Moon occurs on the 8th at 19 degrees Scorpio. A New Moon in Gemini (3 degrees) occurs on the 24th. These factors are taken into account for the horoscopes below.
Youre making up for lost time in May, dear Aries! While your love life has been complicated recently, and others may have undervalued your worth, youre now strutting your stuff. Extremely magnetic, the world is appreciating your unique and straightforward style. The creative and dynamic energy around you is hard to resist or ignore. You have a whole new and credible vision of what youd like to accomplish. Gifts may be forthcoming, and friends delight. Its time to review your finances, especially with a potentially high-spending month ahead of you.
While youre certainly getting noticed in May, dear Taurus, there is a lot going on behind the scenes. A deliciously private love affair might figure this month, or you could be working on a creative project in solitude. Watch that you mean what you say, and say what you mean, because the likelihood of misunderstandings runs high. Support for your career, or a whole new vision of where you want your professional life to go, comes now. Professional charisma runs high, but try to avoid situations that could lead to gossip.
You have a lot of energy to pour into friendships, group projects, or goals this month, dear Gemini. Personal charisma and creativity in group settings is powerful all month. Singles might very well meet their match through friends and group associations. Attached Geminis will find much joy and understanding with their partner. A business partnership is a strong possibility, and travel through business especially rewarding. Some misunderstandings are likely if you don’t take the time to communicate with forethought and deliberation this month. Past proclamations need to be set right carefully.
Professionally speaking, youre enjoying an invigorating and creative peak in May, dear Cancer. Your professional charisma is brilliant this month, and singles might find opportunities to meet a special someone through business events. Those of you looking for a job will find this a strong period for getting noticed in a most positive way. Work having to do with promotions, publishing, and marketing is favorable with your especially creative flair this month. Intimacy is enhanced this month, particularly around the Full Moon on the 8th, occurring in your romance sector.
Relationships are likely to be deliciously complicated this month, although at times running counter to your career endeavors, dear Leo. Professional pursuits get a lot of attention in May, and are especially favored on the 4-5, but you still manage to find time for exciting adventures that break the routine. Its a strong month for creative communications, whether they involve promotional efforts, creative writing, or simply reaching out to others in an especially personable way. Avoiding risks on a financial level is especially important in May, and the same goes for a partner.
Financial creativity runs high this month, dear Virgo. Youre in a position to come up with unique and powerful ways to increase your income. Career matters might challenge you with occasional complications and the need to sacrifice more of your time. Reworking of projects that you previously thought were complete may be in order. However, youre entering a period in which attracting what you want on the job front is easy. Increased intimacy with a partner is likely this month. While acquaintances could find you aloof or distant, charisma in love matters runs high.
May is a close to idyllic time for enhancing or attracting a romantic relationship, dear Libra. Your major focus is on a partnership, and putting your own personal agenda aside for the time being. A partner seems to be taking priority right now. Stimulating and spicy moments are par for the course this month. On a romantic level, the potential to be starry-eyed is great. However, you should watch for keeping your expectations reasonable, or youre liable to gloss over facts. Travel delays are likely, so plan well ahead to allow for more time.
Wonderful energy is with you for work and health routines, dear Scorpio. Charisma on the job can mean getting noticed for your creativity and flair or opportunities to socialize through work connections. Some of you will find an office flirtation or romance is heating up. The Full Moon on the 8th can bring surprising revelations. The second half of the month can be tricky. Negotiations or conversations with a partner that took place in April may be revisited this month, perhaps with some frustration. Home life is especially peaceful and fulfilling.
An exciting, playful, and stimulating month is ahead, dear Sagittarius. While you certainly pay due attention to your work, May brings abundant opportunities to enjoy hobbies, entertainment, and romance. Your charm is natural and finds an adoring audience. There was a lot of talk and general busy-ness on the job in April, and this month youll be revisiting them, and perhaps redoing tasks that you thought were completed. Careful revision is in order. Chance meetings with past acquaintances and future friends are likely, particularly from the 23-27.
Your home and family life is lively and spirited in May, dear Capricorn. Youre in demand around the time of the Full Moon on the 8th, and more than willing to help out a friend in need. Money-making ideas are abundant this month. Youll have to take the time to sit down and judge how realistic each is before acting upon them. From mid-month, conversations with a lover or child are revisited, and it’s time to be clear and straightforward, as misunderstandings are likely. Singles will find romantic opportunities close to home or through the connections of family members.
Focus on family, domestic life, and communications feature strongly in May, dear Aquarius. Conversations with family members you had in April are revisited this month, but care should be taken in expressing yourself with clarity, as misunderstandings are likely. However, in general, your conversational skills are superb this month, attracting more than one admirer! Romantic or creative communications figure strongly in May. Even with Mercury retrograde, you wont be suffering from writers block! Ideas for increasing business income are plentiful, and a friend could be instrumental in helping you find them.
You are likely to expand your career pursuits and business connections this month, dear Pisces. Opportunities on the career front can seem to arrive out of the blue, and could come from past connections. Impulsive buying is a real tendency this month. The potential for a financial increase is as strong as the tendency to spend your gains! Creative money-making ideas should be jotted down for future reference. A partnership requires attention, and going over recent conversations could be frustrating but necessary in order to clear up confusions.
