May 2011 Overview 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 1.
You are entering into a brilliant period for increasing your earning power, dear Aries, and in May, you’ll be busy taking charge of your finances. Money-making opportunities are likely to present themselves, and you feel especially motivated to take advantage of them. Whether it’s a promotion or an all-new position, this is a good time for pursuing your dreams and asking for what you want. Your life stabilizes this month, and romantic matters are quiet but strong. Achieving a sense of security becomes a priority.
May has your name written all over it, dear Taurus. In June, you’ll enter a long-term cycle in which opportunities to advance are strong, and this month, you begin to see doors opening to you. You’ve been on the fence about several matters in your life, but May brings clearer vision and easier decision making. The only real caution now is to avoid pushing yourself and others too hard. It’s an excellent period for increased energy and motivation, so that new endeavors, whether they are business or health-related, or personal, fare especially well.
May begins with plenty of activity and socializing, dear Gemini, but quiets down as the month progresses. It’s a time for collecting yourself, tying up loose ends, and catching up on rest, although mid-month can bring a flurry of activity surrounding work. It can be difficult to meet important deadlines at that time, simply because energy and motivation levels can be low, so you might want to work on projects in advance. In fact, take advantage of the first two weeks of May to push forward with your personal and group-related endeavors.
You can make great strides in your career in the first week of May, dear Cancer. Those in authority look upon you very favorably, and professional projects tend to move forward without resistance. You are likely to get recognition for the work you do or for your responsibility now. Don’t hide yourself away! As the month progresses, emphasis on career decreases and social activities become a stronger focus. Not only will you enjoy the company of friends, your networking efforts can actually inspire new ideas and can lead to success down the road.
You are entering a long-term cycle in which your social status increases and others begin to recognize your professional efforts with more favor, dear Leo. May brings a hint of these things to come, with doors opening for promotions, improved working conditions, or a new position. Your ambition is stimulated, but do take care not to bulldoze your way towards your goals. While most appreciate your take-charge attitude, some might feel threatened by your assertions of independence, so be sure to include everyone. Family members and domestic matters will require special attention mid-month.
While you’ve been rather introspective recently, dear Virgo, and you continue to be withdrawn in the first week of May, you begin to come out of your shell this month. You are hungry for adventure and experiences that lift you above your usual concerns and daily routine. Educational or travel opportunities are opening up in your life, and will continue to do so throughout 2011. Take advantage of this time to brush up on skills or to learn an entirely new subject. This will better prepare you for career success down the road.
May is a strong month for taking charge of finances, dear Libra, and in particular those shared with others, debts, and loans. It is a good time for borrowing or settling debts, if necessary. Either way, dealing with debt now tends to generate positive outcomes. Relationships have been making headlines in your life recently, and this month, the more intimate aspects of sharing with a special someone become your primary concern. The urge for self-transformation can also be strong, and it’s a fine time for kicking a bad habit and eliminating wasteful activities.
The first half of May is excellent for work matters, dear Scorpio. It’s a strong period for personal influence on the job. Some of you might even meet a special someone through your work or health activities. Close partnerships become a major focus as the month progresses. In fact, throughout the remainder of 2011, relationship opportunities are likely to abound. You are especially willing to put your own needs aside in order to make others happy, and your powers of negotiation skyrocket. A personal revelation can occur around the Full Moon on the 17th.
Creative and physical activities thrive this month, dear Sagittarius, especially in the first half of the month. Romantic inclinations are strong, and you find it easy and natural to attract positive attention from others. Whether it’s a new romance or an existing one, passions run high. Casual dating, entertainment, and creative hobbies all fare well now. As May progresses, work matters become a stronger priority, as do any self-care and health programs. It’s an excellent time not only for finding work, but also for relationships on the job.
You’ve been paying a lot of attention to family and career matters recently, dear Capricorn, and at times the juggling act you’ve been doing has been stressful. Fortunately, you’re entering a much more easygoing and self-expressive period. By mid-May, your creative juices stir, and you find more opportunities to enjoy yourself. Romance is highly favored now. Your mood is playful and others more readily appreciate your unique romantic and creative style. Artists can find much success now and in the months ahead, and dabblers can pick up new interests.
The pace of your life continues to be hectic in the first half of May, dear Aquarius. You have a finger in many pies now. The first week of the month is excellent for learning and communication. You are getting your message across with charm and grace. By mid-month, you enter an extended period in which home and family life come into strong focus and are set to improve. Your increased attention to domestic matters certainly helps you to find more peace with family, and you are especially motivated to improve your living conditions.
The first week of May is brilliant for increasing your earning power and for attracting favors, gifts, and bonuses, dear Pisces. While there’s a wonderful feeling of abundance now, a more hectic pace is likely as the month progresses. You are bound to take up new interests and many of you could be focusing a lot of attention on learning and communication endeavors. Increased contact with relatives, neighbors, and acquaintances is likely now, and while you can be very busy with a packed “to do” list, you’ll be making new and exciting connections.
