Tue May 1:
- May Day is the traditional festival of new growth, when couples
pair off for fun and fantasy. Dancing, singing, drumming and doing what
comes naturally would be the best way to celebrate this powerful
festivity. Focus on frolicking rather than forced labour, as even if it's
not a holiday for you, it should be! Read more on
Excellent colors are sparkling green and coppery gold.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 10.
Wed May 2:
Free To Flit
- Close friendships are more important than usual today,
Aquarius. Seek out people who will boost your self-esteem and make you
feel good. Feel free to flit around as it suits you without feeling
restricted. Long-running relationships will go through a rather tense
phase if you have a possessive partner or friend, so refuse to rise to
the bait or be provoked into saying more than the situation merits.
Uplifting colors are yellow ochre and green apple.
Lucky numbers are 22 and 14.
Thu May 3:
- With the fortunate Moon in your ninth house, you communicate on a
much broader scale. Expect messages from abroad or from a distance
away. Loftier subjects occupy your mind, whether philosophy, religion,
education or politics. You have a lot of energy for improving your
surroundings or life situations. Move cautiously, try tact not foot-
stamping. Put your energy into constructive projects.
Fortunate colors are pumpkin and avocado.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 18.
Fri May 4:
Wait For Clarity
- If you feel you are being undermined, or that certain plans are
dissolving under your feet, the best thing is to wait for everything to
become clearer. After a couple of days you will be much more decisive
about how to cope. You really do not want to go flying into robust
discussions just yet. You don't know how you want to appear to others, or
indeed what you really want for yourself.
Protective colors are bright vermilion and glossy obsidian.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 32.
Sat May 5:
- Find a better balance between head and heart. Success in the
outer world won't be fulfilling unless you have a settled emotional base.
But equally you can't find all your satisfaction in your intimate
environment. This is a good time for meaningful encounters and
conversations, but you need to pay more attention to other people. The
more you hear what they have to say, the better it will be for you in the
Favorable colors are terracotta and honey.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 8.
Sun May 6:
- Money comes more easily than usual now through joint ventures.
This is either because of your partner's generosity at home or through
work, but don't take other people's generosity for granted. Try to
discover what other things hold value for you in life apart from money.
Your old priorities have been swept away so you need to find new ones
that have personal meaning for you.
Beneficial colors are smoky quartz and ebony.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 30.
Mon May 7:
- As the Moon battles macho Mars you could be irritable and
rather too demanding for relationships at work to run smoothly. Go your
own independent way and take satisfaction in a job being well done. Watch
health since things could get a little over-heated, even accident-prone
at times. Slow down a touch and strive to be more objective. Put as
much attention into getting your body fit as you do towards practical
work matters and all will go well.
Suitable colors are red coral and silver.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 12.
Tue May 8:
Consider Your Options
- The Moon is now moving through your house of friends and future
plans, so surround yourself with teammates, colleagues and companions
-- the more the merrier! If you are part of a group energy you'll get
good support and a few helpful hints. However, you'll be restless and
fickle, never staying in one place for long. Consider your options.
Beneficial colors are pale gold and chestnut.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 11.
Wed May 9:
- Mercury turns your attention to such things as real estate
transactions, repairs or other matters related to your home or
property, family business, and correspondence with or short trips to
visit relatives. Are you thinking about collecting or restoring family
heirlooms? Gather information on your genealogy and family history, or
visit your childhood home. Be honest; admit that domestic and family
security is more important now.
Expressive colors are fire engine red and bright green.
Lucky numbers are 69 and 40.
Thu May 10:
Practical And Conservative
- Stand up for yourself, Aquarius. Of course you would rather
that everything is smooth and harmonious. but compromise and bending
around other people is not the Aquarian Way. Read the fine print in money
matters, with close attention to the tiny details. Practical and
conservative thinking is best. You can have productive ideas today.
Excellent colors are dark grey and indian red.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 69.
Fri May 11:
- Even though the Moon is in your sign, your defenses could be low,
so you need to protect yourself better. Your interests ebb and flow
like the tide. Seek protective friends who are more practical than you
are just now. You are sensitive to the undercurrents in the emotional
atmosphere, which makes you more sympathetic but can also be rather confusing.
Prosperous colors are green apple and red carnation.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 15.
Sat May 12:
Stiffen Your Backbone
- The Aquarian Moon will stiffen your backbone, so take pride in
what you do for its own sake. Be your own morale booster. Just remember
to throw as much energy and attention towards keeping fit as you do to
working hard. Don't fall for unlikely schemes. You'd best concentrate
on your long term plans.
Appropriate colors are periwinkle and mustard.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 2.
Sun May 13:
- Water-Bearers are often a rather detached lot at the best of
times, but this is Mothers Day and you'll find that today's aspects are
absolutely fabulous! Make the most of this opportunity, when Venus and
Saturn are blessed by the Moon and Jupiter is blessed by the Sun. There
are great opportunities in the wind, but touch base with your mother.
You'll both enjoy it. More on Mothers Day.
Excellent colors are buttercup yellow and mixed stripes.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 9.
Mon May 14:
Eye For Detail
- Approach your chores with determination, an eye for detail and
take a good deal of pride in doing a task well. Luckily your naturally
sunny temperament will keep you popular. Keep putting on a great
Beneficial colors are old rope and mushroom pink.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 15.
Tue May 15:
- As Venus begins her trip down the backstairs passage, you are
in the midst of an extended process of changing your long-term plans,
finding that what once held your enthusiasm now no longer does so. This
phase has an impact on your romantic relationships and the children in
your life. Those of you with children will need to be extra patient and
attentive now. If you are trying to start a family, you might not get the
results you want right away, but that should change in just a few short weeks!
Fortunate colors are ivory and tangerine.
Lucky numbers are 14 and 18.
Wed May 16:
- Are you taking too narrow a view of one situation, selecting some
facts and ignoring others? If you can speak to your companions in a
cooler, more rational way, they are likely to connect better. As your
world whizzes faster,sometimes you rush too fast. Slow down and think
Lucky colors are caramel and magenta.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 14.
Thu May 17:
- If you're impulsive and not terribly reliable as far as other
people are concerned, it's because the planetary influences are inclining
you to take risks. This lets you see that life can have broader horizons.
What other things (apart from money) hold value for you? This is a time
where your old priorities have been swept away. Seek new ones that have
meaning for you.
Favorable colors are buttercup yellow and melon pink.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 43.
Fri May 18:
- Back off from tricky circumstances and find a niche where you can
be in charge of all you survey. Home is your castle, as the Moon bowls
into Taurus, your house of new beginnings and household circumstances.
Remember, if you can hide your confusion behind a mask of mystique,
then you can fool most of the people most of the time. Check out every
aspect of your life and talents, then you will find solid answers for
Auspicious colors are apricot and aqua.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 49.
Sat May 19:
Heart On Your Sleeve
- In love with life? Don't you just feel like a child at heart -
spontaneous, colorful and unselfconscious. If you are wearing your heart
on your sleeve, be upfront about what or whom you fancy. You attract
confidences from other people they don't readily disclose to others.
Deeper matters interest you and you may be giving off vibes you're not
Ideal colors are dark purple and antique gold.
Lucky numbers are 2 and 69.
Sun May 20:
- This is your day to shine without apology or self-
consciousness. Most of us hide away parts of ourselves we think others
might not like or approve. Throw away your inhibitions and just express
who you are and what you feel. The right people will respond very
positively. With the New Moon, a solar eclipse, you are inventive in your
thinking and speaking, ready and on the button; but you can also be
Fortunate colors are parchment and aubergine.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 9.
Mon May 21:
Broaden Your Horizons
- You need new answers to old problems and are feeling particularly
inspired just now. All sorts of things are happening rather quickly, so
spot the ones that will broaden your horizons. You are in the midst of
changing your long term plans, finding that what once held your
enthusiasm now no longer does. Move into groups of people that hold
influence or power in society.
Fortunate colors are cherry pink and blueberry.
Lucky numbers are 34 and 35.
Tue May 22:
- All sorts of excellent opportunities are opening up under the
chatty Gemini Moon. You need to be in top form in order to make best
use of them all, even that ego-boosting romantic attraction. Your
critical faculties are well honed, which is valuable in checking
accuracy, but this can lead to strained relationships at home with
noisy arguments. Concentrate on your goals, which are within reach now.
Don't just wait, make it happen!
Favorable colors are silvery pink and indigo.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 9.
Wed May 23:
- Keeping your stamina high is crucial now, since you are being
landed with many responsibilities. Try not to be such a perfectionist
-- instead, think laterally and find the fastest, most efficient way
around the problem. You need to watch your diet, not in the sense of
eating less but maybe just more sensibly. Try to give yourself things
that are going to be of positive benefit rather than pulling your
energy further down.
Positive colors are ebony and ivory.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 75.
Thu May 24:
- Mercury zips into your fifth house of romance and creativity,
introducing you to a phase of artistic inspiration. Love notes are in the
wind! This is also a good time to communicate with the children in your
life, who may experience difficulty as Venus turns retrograde.
Lucky colors are cornflower blue and sunflower yellow.
Lucky numbers are 57 and 28.
Fri May 25:
Clash Of The Titans
- The Moon clashing with high voltage Mars and sober Saturn means
problems are to be expected. If things are not going quite as well as
you'd planned, just remember that patience will help. Don't duck and dive
to avoid the problem, but work quietly and persistently at trying to
remove or overcome it. Undoubtedly you may feel over stressed at times
and under appreciated for your efforts but this is a time of laying solid
foundations for the future.
Auspicious colors are raspberry and persimmon.
Lucky numbers are 26 and 10.
Sat May 26:
Long Term Strategy
- Try not to be unsettled if things are not going precisely as
you want. You tend to over-react to things, hearing slights where none
exist. Don't live so much in your hopes for the future, that you forget
to live in the present and enjoy what you really have. You need to find
yourself a long term strategy for self-fulfillment, but you have to
balance that with everyday activities that need your wholehearted attention.
Fortunate colors are strawberry and smoky purple.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 63.
Sun May 27:
Cloud of Unknowing
- Are you rushing in where angels fear to tread? You'll regret it
later, Aquarius. Stop. Take a few deep breaths and proceed with
caution. Your finances, especially partner's funds, aren't very stable at
the moment, but if you want to pass the buck, blame it on Neptune in your
second house. Neptune represents deception and delusion, so keep your
wits about you. See that all your options are open and be prepared for
a cloud of unknowing.
Stabilizing colors are ochre and warm brown.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 46.
Mon May 28:
- You are rather vague and uncertain at the moment, so avoid
specialized tasks or jobs that need a great deal of concentration. When
and if you are able to get some time to yourself, daydream or just
drift away. When you come back to Earth, you'll be imaginative and full
of ideas. You want to keep the peace and ensure that all encounters
are blissful, so you're immensely forgiving now. Be careful, beautiful
Aquarians that others don't take advantage of you whilst you're in this mood....
Auspicious colors are sable and dark green.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 58.
Tue May 29:
Ask For Help
- Your energy needs to be channeled into health, diet and any form
of spirit that makes you feel nourished. You need to boost your
stamina, because certain parts of your life need re-organizing now. You
have a mental and spiritual deficit and you have to look after
yourself. The planetary influences around you could make you come
across as chilly to other people, but you're just plain tired. If you can
muster the energy, open up to those closest to you and explain what you
Soothing colors are avocado and peach.
Lucky numbers are 16 and 8.
Wed May 30:
- Break free of routine, tedious people and responsibilities. You
are full of amazing ideas and yearn to discuss them. It's time to broaden
your horizons and fly high -- travel is the obvious solution, but if that
isn't possible read a banned or ground-breaking book, try new cuisine, or
rent a foreign film. Do something different!
Adventurous colors are bright red and jet black.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 69.
Thu May 31:
- The influence of sensual Venus is making you feel expansive, lazy
and confident. After yesterday, what a relief! You are more dramatic,
fun-loving and attention-seeking than usual, but don't over do it. Not to
put a damp rag on things but the higher your hopes, the further you fall.
If you can discipline yourself, you'll find the opportunity to enjoy the love.
Bold colors are bright pink and peacock blue.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 20.
