Tue May 1:
- Tuesday is the day of Mars and it's also May Day, a traditional
day of festivity known as Beltane, when young lovers would pair off (at
least for the day!). Mars has been in Virgo for what seems an eternity,
but now he's marching forwards again, enlivening your working routines
and energizing relationships with underlings. In elder times, there was a
king and queen of the May and magical orgies took place in the woods, but
it's a great day for all kinds of festivities, not just the horizontal
kind! Read more on May Day
Fortunate colors are crimson and purple.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 8.
Wed May 2:
- There is a rather fated feeling about a certain relationship now,
Aries, but after few days you'll wonder what on earth you were getting so
excited about. Be careful your feelings aren't leading you up the
garden path. You need to re-think some of your personal beliefs and
find a different perspective on your life.
Positive colors are silver and antique gold.
Lucky numbers are 24 and 30.
Thu May 3:
- Try not to be jealous or possessive if things are not going
precisely as you want. Balance is what you need, but avoid swinging to
extremes in the effort to find it. Having a partner you can confide in is
vital to your confidence now. Mars is at a tricky angle to Mercury so
it's difficult to bring discussions or conversations to a satisfactory
conclusion, as you will be constantly switching tack.
Relaxing colors are bright orange and kiwifruit.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 26.
Fri May 4:
Follow Your Hunches
- Follow your hunches, but don't put certain people on pedestals
- you know who I mean. If you expect miracles, you will end up feeling
very disappointed. Be realistic Aries, they're only human after all.
There's confusion over future plans. You are dithering because you
don't want to commit yourself in case something better turns up. You
could be missing good opportunities this way.
Inspirational colors are snow white and pale pink.
Lucky numbers are 71 and 38.
Sat May 5:
- Are you thinking about changing the way you relate to others, but
don't want to decide anything on the spur of the moment? Getting your own
security together needs to come first. If you're feeling gloomy under the
Scorpio Moon, remember not to take the bleak side of every situation.
Sometimes you just have to dig deep to find out what people's motivations
really are. What has led you to the situation you are now facing?
Knowledge is freedom.
Positive colors are rich red and silvery blue.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 24.
Sun May 6:
Under The Carpet
- You should be feeling healthier now, and able to sort out
ailments faster than usual. Over-indulgence is a real danger, so don't
let that diet slide for lack of willpower. This is a time of tension as
you explore the past and bring to light what you've kept out of sight for
many years. But you'll feel more solid, with more energy by the end of
this phase. If you've been sweeping things under the carpet for too long,
this will liberate you.
Expressive colors are charcoal grey and tangerine.
Lucky numbers are 66 and 18.
Mon May 7:
Mars the Warrior
- Warrior Mars, your life-ruler, is stomping through your house
of work and health, so you feel restless and irritable without knowing
why. Try not to take that ill-humor out on family or loved ones.
Community meetings are favoured, as you'll be well received, especially
if you're on the podium. The planets make you very creative now, and your
original slant is just what people need.
Fortunate colors are fiery red and golden rod.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 27.
Tue May 8:
Bird's Eye View
- Desperate to get away from tedious chores and boring people?
Fly a little bit higher and broaden your horizons. Travel would suit
you best, but there are other ways to keep your interest engaged. Take
the bird's eye view rather than being sunk in minutiae and detail. Look
ahead, you'll make some prophetic choices.
Ideal colors are hessonite and lilac.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 20.
Wed May 9:
- A broad range of topics is on your mind, so it's a good idea to
shy clear of anything too emotional. As Merc heads into Taurus, you can
earn more money for a few weeks, or manage your money more sensibly. With
the planetary influences on your sign, ironically your spending could
spiral out of control. Rams should be careful.
Creative colors are magenta and neon.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 6.
Thu May 10:
Clouding Your Judgement
- Now you can to tell other people what you feel about them in a
very positive way. Seek out a situation where you can appreciate
beauty, listen to music or maybe even go off to write a poem. There is
a danger that your thinking could be a little biased about one particular
situation. Be clear before you speak out because at this time your
emotions could be coloring your judgement.
Positive colors are plum and cinnamon.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 44.
Fri May 11:
- Feeling lackluster? Not in the mood for anything practical?
Concentration and motivation may be lacking so give yourself a break; get
the right kind of emotional contact with friends and other people. This
is your time to set the agenda and whoever is around can help you sort
out your options.
Romantic colors are rusty brown and red.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 16.
Sat May 12:
- You may have been temporarily stuck with certain projects, but
there is no sense in getting agitated. Today you're in higher gear, so
throw this strong energy into reorganizing the house. Get things into
shape, but do beware a tendency to be a little too sharp, as you could
hurt sensitive feelings. See what you can do in a positive spirit that
will make a difference.
Auspicious colors are spanish leather and black onyx.
Lucky numbers are 15 and 64.
Sun May 13:
- The second Sunday in May is Mothers Day in many part of the
world, and today could hardly be a better one to remember her. The
atmosphere is loving and merry, as the cosmos pours down love to us
all. If your health has been a problem, it should begin to rally. It's
also a good day for financial fortunes, and news from abroad, or in the
mail. Give your mother a call, if you can't see her in person. More on Mothers Day.
Positive colors are pale purple and raw umber.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 21.
Mon May 14:
- If you feel that work is frustrating, with slow progress on all
fronts, just blame Mars in Virgo under pressure from the vacillating
Pisces Moon. He dithers a while before making up his mind. Do not feel
like a failure, just recognize that achievements will come later on. It's
hard fo the Ram to learn patience. While you've got time to spare,
spend some with close colleagues or workmates.
Auspicious colors are amber and hazelnut.
Lucky numbers are 10 and 11.
Tue May 15:
- After slowing for some weeks, Venus turns retrograde in your
house of communication. Soul searching regarding your relationships is in
the wind, as siblings or neighbors may be having a difficult time.
Running around in the neighborhood is likely to see you spinning your
wheels. Although your chat volume is on high, you might find yourself
at cross-purposes. Children's education is likely to create emotional
turmoil and travel or appointments may be the victim of bad feeling.
Expect a revue of old communications, or even the discovery of old love letters.
Favorable colors are brown and lime.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 6.
Wed May 16:
- Your communication is directed to whatever has a practical or
financial purpose. Others may carp about your slowness but it's vital
to get everything right. But try to put yourself into other people's
shoes when you can. That way you know what you want and what they want as
well. Don't get all stewed up about something that isn't quite as
important as you're making it out to be.
Harmonious colors are cherry and lavender.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 41.
Thu May 17:
Time of Tension
- You impulsive Rams should not rush into situations without
stopping to consider your actions first. You may experience this as a
time of tension, as you explore the past and bring to light what you've
kept out of sight for many years. But by the end of this phase, you'll
feel more solid. Pause for thought.
Creative colors are dark tan and lemon.
Lucky numbers are 14 and 11.
Fri May 18:
Moderation Is The Answer
- Going to one extreme or the other where cash is concerned will
not be helpful. Moderation is the answer. Believe what you want to
believe where friends or workmates are concerned, but this could turn out
to be unwise. Being gullible will only create confusion for you in the
long run. Decide for yourself in a down to earth way just how much
commitment you can give in group efforts.
Businesslike colors are sepia and black.
Lucky numbers are 55 and 74.
Sat May 19:
Restless, Yet Versatile
- Restless, yet versatile, you seem to know a little about a good
many subjects, Rams. Are you scattering your attention across too wide
a field? Concentrate on the details rather than the broad sweep of any
project, but do not overload yourself with too much work. If you feel
quite compassionate, why not involve yourself in charitable work that has
a definite end result?
Beneficial colors are cranberry and chestnut.
Lucky numbers are 21 and 49.
Sun May 20:
New Moon Solar Eclipse
- Your heart is in the right place and everyone knows it -- but
with the naughty planetary influences around you, they're not sure
where you're coming from. If you're a bit scatty today thanks to the
powerful annular solar eclipse just after the mighty Solar Orb heads into
Gemini, be sure to collect your thoughts before you dash into things. You
need more method and discipline in your everyday schedules, and this is
the day to start. Rams always stand out from the crowd and rarely fit
into the common mold. You are going to make an impression.
Excellent colors are silver and carmine.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 15.
Mon May 21:
- Communicative Mercury heads towards a really positive aspect to
fortunate Jupiter, so good news on the financial front. Mercury is the
winged messenger of the gods, so expect loads of phone calls, letters,
conversations and negotiations. If you find yourself trying to convert
everyone to your views, remember that first you need to reach the right
Appropriate colors are ripe wheat and mocca.
Lucky numbers are 13 and 9.
Tue May 22:
- The outcome should be better than you had hoped, Aries. Keep your
feet on the ground and your eye on the fine detail. Avoid letting an
adrenaline rush push you into anything too wild. Throw that formidable
energy into DIY or reorganizing your home. If you don't use your energy
constructively, your family will be getting told off for their
Advantageous colors are gold and crimson.
Lucky numbers are 15 and 36.
Wed May 23:
Avoid Awkward People
- Those closest to you in your emotional life will be your most
important support as the Moon rides into Cancer. They will help you avoid
awkward people at work or out in the community. How have you got into
an emotional muddle? Have you acted without thinking things through
clearly enough? With more understanding you can prevent yourself ending
up in this place again in the future.
Balancing colors are burnt umber and burgundy.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 9.
Thu May 24:
- Even if you are normally lacking in confidence, the planetary
influences now can give you a boost. There is a silver lining in every
cloud, as Merc heads into zippy Gemini. Everyone will be happy to pitch
in together, without too much aggravation. Don't get carried away by your
enthusiasm or promise more than you can deliver.
Confident colors are cinnamon and primrose.
Lucky numbers are 68 and 38.
Fri May 25:
Bite Your Tongue
- Other people seem to be getting in your way, or doing things that
are distinctly unhelpful, so bite your tongue. But with the Moon sparking
off fierce Mars and grim Saturn, you only grit your teeth for so long,
then you let fly. It's not easy to be assertive in a calm, steady way
in these trying circumstances. Everything you have swept under the carpet
at home or in the family wants to come out into the open.
Positive colors are banana and toffee.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 45.
Sat May 26:
- Now that the Moon has stepped into flamboyant Leo, you are in the
spotlight, or basking in the limelight. Go flirt, have fun, play games
with loved ones, children or enjoy recreation. Something excellent
could come out of the blue, perhaps an old flame may spark up!
Delightful colors are rose quartz and silver.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 8.
Sun May 27:
Let It Out
- Let the restless spirit out, dear Aries. Don't feel obliged to
sit yourself in a corner, or be stuck with anyone else's agenda. Stand up
for what you want as an individual. Popularity is not everything. Maybe
in the past you have been scared to be too different from others.
Remember that the more you try to be conventional, which you are not, the
more tension builds up inside you.
Positive colors are apple and buttercup.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 11.
Mon May 28:
- Painting pictures in your mind will be very enjoyable, but it's
not so easy when you try to express what you are thinking or feeling.
Draw your important messages, or even write a poem about them, because
pictures and images can speak volumes. You have a capacity to intuitively
understand the emotional situation, but be careful you are not getting
too close to things. Resist the urge to biffo, Rams!
Practical colors are cream and pistachio.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 4.
Tue May 29:
- Rams are hyper-sensitive to the slightest emotional change and if
threatened will be very defensive. You may retreat into your shell if you
feel irritated or hurt. Put your energy wholeheartedly into the family or
relationship areas of your life. Today you could end up feeling badly
done by, since it seems as if it is all work and no play. Don't get
gloomy, this is only a temporary phase.
Protective colors are amethyst and crimson.
Lucky numbers are 16 and 48.
Wed May 30:
- Cooperation is needed in whatever you are doing at home or at
work, but especially in partnership realms. The mood may also be a bit
insecure, though you'll get a lot done in the work environment (or your
underlings will!). Give in for the sake of peace, quiet and support,
since it is in your best interests that those close get full attention.
Be gracious and complimentary.
Communicative colors are chocolate and ivory.
Lucky numbers are 25 and 33.
Thu May 31:
Sweep Them Up
- You can win others over if you sweep them up in your
enthusiasm, Aries, but if you sound self-righteous they will back away.
Hard as it may seem, be straightforward and cheerful, and others will
adore you. There may be less time for depth or detail than you might
like, as you are sure to be pulled in different directions with much more
correspondence than usual to handle. Ask for help from your partner or
spouse and it shall be given!
Advantageous colors are aquamarine and raspberry.
Lucky numbers are 21 and 12.
