Tue May 1:
Are you the King or the Queen of May? Love is the flavor of
the day, one of the traditional Cross-Quarter Days, marking the coming of
summer to northern climes. Celebrations and love-linkings have been
held since time immemorial on this day. Anciently known as Beltane, today
marks a festival of new growth, when couples pair off for fun and
fantasy. Read more on May Day.
Fortunate colors are silver and red.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 5.
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:
- 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:
- 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:
- 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. You may be taken aback by certain events that blow up
suddenly, but at heart you really thrive on excitement. Just keep that
highly-strung nervous system well in hand.
Auspicious colors are bright red and snow white.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 32.
Mon May 7:
- 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, take
care of the old bod. Remember to eat well, rest, relax, exercise
properly, and take better care of yourself.
Healthy colors are buttercup and rose.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 10.
Wed May 9:
Wit And Wisdom
- Influential people are impressed with your wit, wisdom and
articulate way of expressing yourself, Cancer. So keep talking! As
Mercury enters friendly Taurus, you need to be part of the crowd, both at
work and in your leisure activities. See what you can do in however small
a way to improve society as the planets urge you to throw your energy
into helpful causes. Why not enjoy swapping your ideas with friends,
challenging each other to discover new truths.
Uplifting colors are marigold and red.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 49.
Thu May 10:
- The Moon in your opposite sign urges you to compromise a
little, my lovely Crabs. Mend fences. If there have been arguments,
this is the time to put the right word in the right ear. Suddenly
everything will calm itself down. But your outlook is less than
practical. Don't be swept up in your enthusiasms to the point where you
lose touch with what is possible. Keep your feet on the ground and be realistic.
Empowering colors are amethyst and pale lime.
Lucky numbers are 19 and 46.
Fri May 11:
- There will be some blips at work and in friendships today, dear
Cancer. Get down into the depths to investigate and find the long-term
solutions. It may be to do with financial or emotional matters. Or
perhaps the more fundamental questions you are asking of yourself at this
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:
The delightful Pisces Moon is shining on Mothers Day this year,
creating some truly wonderful aspects. It's the perfect day to contact
her, especially if she lives abroad or far away. The Moon stands for
mother and is the planetary ruler of your sign, so when the lunar orb
is well disposed, beautiful things can happen! More on Mothers Day.
Favorable colors are sea green and pale violet.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 11.
Mon May 14:
Touch Of Tact
- Straight ahead is your motto, so if obstacles get in your way,
sweep them to one side. Try adding a touch of tact, since that can be a
faster method of getting your own way. Why ruffle feathers and arouse
resistance? OK, socially it's not your best time. But don't feel isolated
or under-appreciated. Just enjoy the quiet moments, it will soon start
Stabilizing colors are carmine and cream.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 7.
Tue May 15:
- 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:
- If you can avoid falling out with the authority figures in your
life, you will be much better off, as Saturn battles the Moon. Your ideas
on life are changing dramatically and you find yourself open to
unconventional, radical opinions. Friends and family will be amazed at
the change in your outlook. You may be taken aback by certain events
which blow up suddenly -- just keep your rather highly-strung nervous
system in hand.
Auspicious colors are gold and silver.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 70.
Fri May 18:
Ebb And Flow
- Don't be jealous if a friend pays more attention to someone
else because it will pass very quickly. The mood is rather fickle now
as things tend to be good one moment and not so good the next. Just let
it ebb and flow. You may be yearning for wonderful relationships, or a
financial windfall to end all your problems, but you need to be more
realistic and practical, and avoid the tendency to live in a dream world.
Balancing colors are jade and bronze.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 3.
Sat May 19:
- Not at your most outgoing and sociable, you will be happiest in
the quiet backwaters for the time being. Even your own company will not
be a hardship for short periods, though obviously not all the time.
However, you do seem to know a little about a great many things. Your
versatility will astonish even you, and is a tremendous strength used
correctly -- as a wonderfully stimulating conversationalist!
Ideal colors are avocado and apricot.
Lucky numbers are 26 and 73.
Sun May 20:
- 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:
- 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
public standing. Colleagues may want to stick to the status quo, so power
struggles are almost inevitable.
Fortunate colors are sapphire blue and emerald green.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 57.
Tue May 22:
- 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
through the red tape and get straight to the point. Don't bear grudges;
move on. Put these temporary squalls behind you
Favorable colors are primrose and silvery grey.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 31.
Wed May 23:
- 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:
- 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:
- 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:
- 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:
- 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:
- 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 that have
been bugging you for days. This is a great time for cleaning out and re-
organizing things generally. At the end of it all you'll feel back in control.
Ideal colors are aqua and peach.
Lucky numbers are 16 and 78.
Wed May 30:
Hide In Your Shell
- It's time to retreat and find a place where you can have some
peace and quiet. You need privacy so get away from the outside world.
If you are feeling self-protective and sensitive, it's good to cling to
loved ones and familiar surroundings. Draw back from the hustle 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.
