Wed May 2: Flash A Smile
- Try flashing a happy smile, even if you're gritting your teeth behind the scenes. You'll get your own way faster by being charming. Your feelings run deeper than usual, but that should be your secret. Looking after your body is a priority since you do feel pressured by
demands on your time and energy. Constantly pushing against difficulties drains your energy reserves. Isn't there an easier way round certain work situations? Uplifting colors are sable and dark red. Lucky numbers are 3 and 26.
Thu May 3: Look After You
- With the Moon in Libra this is a good day to be self-protective and retreat into a private place, preferably at home. So much the better if you can manage to take the day off, put your feet up and wrap yourself around a warm teddy bear. Even if you're at work, you need
a protective niche where you push away awkward people, hassles and hustle. Relaxing colors are dusky rose and silvery grey. Lucky numbers are 11 and 2.
Fri May 4: Different Values
- This is not a great day for self-confidence or taking direct action, so just let yourself slide around things. Watch you are not misled by vague hunches, or by information coming from others. Your life is changing slowly at a subtle level due to the influence of
nebulous Neptune, so you may feel rather undermined. This is all part of the process of moving towards different values, better securities and more realistic commitments. Beneficial colors are sapphire and ruby. Lucky numbers are 5 and 22.
Sat May 5: Full Moon
- Friends pull you one way and loved ones another, dear Cancer. Tonight's Full Moon in sexy Scorpio urges you to choose your alternatives so as to satisfy your own needs. Intimate companions may have been feeling excluded. Are you thinking more deeply than usual and
communicating in a penetrating way? Don't come across as more forceful than you intend. Favorable colors are scarlet and silver. Lucky numbers are 5 and 23.
Sun May 6: Wise Crabs
- Your ability to observe and your way with words make others see you as someone in the know. Your ideas on life are changing dramatically now and you find yourself open to unconventional even radical opinions. Your friends will be amazed at this change in your outlook.

Mon May 7: Higher Gear
- As the Moon and Mars clash, your temper is not likely to be at its smoothest, but a blunt approach is what is needed to achieve your aims. Just watch that your impulsiveness doesn't lead you into trouble. Remember the old saying, 'fools rush in where angels fear to
tread'. Harmonious colors are terracotta and cream. Lucky numbers are 15 and 1.
Tue May 8: Boost Your Stamina
- The Moon in your house of work and health inclines you to work hard and attend to your duties. You love to travel, but need to boost your stamina, because your emotions are now tied up with your working situation, and indeed with your health. If you're feeling upset,

Fri May 11: Troublesome Blips

at this time. Propitious colors are blueberry and peach. Lucky numbers are 11 and 42.
Sat May 12: More Competitive And Energetic
- The planetary influences help the Crab on two levels. Mars makes you more competitive and energetic than usual, so take pleasure in the hard work you will be capable of for a while. Allow yourself to do what timidity has prevented in the past. Plus, you will be able to
find a good balance between feelings and duty, as you gain control of one particular practical situation. Profitable colors are steely grey and red coral. Lucky numbers are 9 and 56.
Sun May 13: Mothers Day

Mon May 14: Touch Of Tact

isolated or under-appreciated. Just enjoy the quiet moments, it will soon start getting busy. Stabilizing colors are carmine and cream. Lucky numbers are 6 and 7.
Tue May 15: Venus Retrograde
- As Venus turns in your twelfth house, you are sensitive to the unspoken needs of those close. This phase tests your relationships, and you'll feel less sociable and more sensitive. One of the best things you can do now is work behind the scenes to help others, as the
twelfth house also rules hospitals and institutions. Watch that you do not become emotionally overloaded, soaking in too much of their problems. Practice meditation or other means of naturally calming and centering yourself. A secret love may resurface. Positive colors are grey blue and chrysoberyl. Lucky numbers are 7 and 12.
Wed May 16: Fast Moving Mind
- Such a sharp, fast-moving mind, dear Cancer! Remember to write things down, since you can be absent-minded and forget your brilliant inspirations as soon as you have them. If you are more emotional in public than usual it may feel strange, but it lets other people see
your more human side. You can attract more sympathy, and at the same time be more sensitive to what is going on around you at work. Favorable colors are sand and red velvet. Lucky numbers are 28 and 35.
Thu May 17: Highly Strung

Fri May 18: Ebb And Flow

Sat May 19: Quiet Backwaters

Sun May 20: Solar Eclipse
- Don't expect anything major today. The Moon is your cosmic ruler, so the New Moon, a solar eclipse in your twelfth house of secrets, urges you to put your wholehearted attention behind the scenes into whatever you want to put into place over the next year. At work, you
have to watch a tendency to act erratically. You crave excitement, so if you get into a situation which feels too secure, you'll rock the boat. The trick is to find positive outlets for your energy. Beneficial colors are mother of pearl and pale violet. Lucky numbers are 12 and 21.
Mon May 21: High Voltage
- You're in high gear because Uranus' influence has a wonderful, electrical quality. Life is more stimulating and fascinating, and everyone you meet seems rather interesting. Good news is in the air, but you're a bit scattered as Uranus stirs up your house of career and

Tue May 22: Lady Luck
- If you're normally timid, the planetary influences will make you more confident. You suddenly find the courage to try things which normally you would not attempt. Lady Luck is on your side, but actually your dynamic approach is also helping to make things happen. Cut

Wed May 23: Spot On
- It is important that you are not left on your own or pushed to one side for a day or two, as the Moon moves through your sign. You will be very tuned into the subtle undercurrents of the atmosphere around you. You could become overwhelmed by other people's feelings so
you need to protect yourself by standing back. Your hunches are likely to be spot on. Favorable colors are pale green and moonstone. Lucky numbers are 1 and 6.
Thu May 24: Flexible Crustaceans
- With the Moon in your sign it's the time to be flexible and meet new, stimulating people. This is a morale-boosting time for you. Can you see see that what has held you back in the past has been your own narrow outlook? It wasn't down to ill luck or life being
difficult (as you thought). Your confidence in your ability to communicate well is growing. Your everyday life and contacts are easier as a result. You will be pleasantly surprised by your new tolerance. Favorable colors are ochre and silvery green. Lucky numbers are 45 and 4.
Fri May 25: Road Block
- Fuming, fretting and complaining isn't getting you anywhere fast; there is a temporary road block ahead and you have to wait for it to clear, or alternatively, you could chip away at whatever stands in your path. All you need is determination and perseverance and
you'll win through eventually. You may find your energy levels are low so you don't have the inclination to work quite as hard as usual. Positive colors are champagne and dark blue. Lucky numbers are 5 and 13.
Sat May 26: Emotional Insights
- The morning is full of emotional insights, and warm feeling, dear Cancer. Don't let a mood get the better of you, because communication is better than tantrums. As the day draws on the Moon moves on, so get boring things like paperwork and housework out of the way.
Once you have that organized, you'll feel a lot better. Regenerate your body with exercise, good food and enough sleep. Ignoring ailments and warning signs and hoping for the best just won't work. Favorable colors are aubergine and silver. Lucky numbers are 37 and 11.
Sun May 27: Expect The Unexpected
- It's a pretty mixed day with a few mood swings, especially when cash is concerned. It would be good for life to settle down to its normal pace again. Make sure you don't ruffle too many feathers in the process! Long distance travel is likely to be both exciting and
rather disruptive, whether you are on the move or just in the planning stages. Expect the unexpected and try not to take risks or become too impatient. Auspicious colors are pistachio and dark brown. Lucky numbers are 11 and 47.
Mon May 28: Emotional Crabs
- If your emotions get in the way of reason, it's because you can't think as clearly as usual, especially about money. Resist the urge to babble on about trivia, or people won't be able to follow your drift. There are days when making a determined push is the right
approach. Then there are days when you can end up in the right place at the right time, saying the right thing, without making too much of an effort. This is one of those days. Beneficial colors are mango and pineapple. Lucky numbers are 7 and 61.
Tue May 29: New Projects
- This is a good time to start new projects since you have lots of initiative, imagination and determination now. There is a slight danger that you could be better at starting things than finishing them, but if you concentrate you'll be able to sort out some problems

and hassles at work. You'll be happiest with your feet up. Propitious colors are dusky pink and silvery blue. Lucky numbers are 2 and 33.
Thu May 31: Recharge Your Batteries
- There aren't too many obstacles today with other people.. or with yourself. The only downside could be that you spend too much money or think that you are right about absolutely everything. You will also be feeling rather retiring and not at all pushy with the
planetary emphasis on Gemini. This is your time to step back and take stock. Take time off if you can to recharge your batteries and if you can't, delegate. Let others do the running around. Fortunate colors are walnut brown and deep purple. Lucky numbers are 26 and 52.
