Click here for Moonbeam's Month in Brief.
Tue May 1:
The month of May is named after the ancient Roman goddess Maia,
the wife of Mars and mother of Mercury. Macho Mars is conjunct the Moon
in sweet Virgo, and May Day is the traditional time for young couples
to pair off (at least for the day!). As the Goat is noted for randy
urges, now's the time to follow them. Tonight is a great night for a
get together with friends over a fiery foreign feast and for making a
romantic connection, perhaps with a slinky stranger or a fascinating
foreigner. Read more on May Day.
Favorable colors are charcoal and scarlet.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 8.
Wed May 2:
You are even more charming than usual, Capricorn. You know what
you want, even if you're not saying, and will use all your wiles to bring
others around to your way of thinking. If you can keep your ulterior
motives out of sight then all will be well. You are having quite a
profound, almost unseen, influence on the people around you because of
the strength of your personality. Maybe you are stronger than you give
yourself credit for.
Auspicious colors are chestnut and silvery blue.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 59.
Thu May 3:
The Moon is nurturing and motherly now, and sitting on your
midheaven for a couple of days. It is nudging you into being more
protective of those around you. The more you give, the more everyone
appreciates you, so try looking on the bright side. You cope well with
situations which are out of the ordinary but you might make normal
situations more difficult than they need to be.
Favorable colors are sage green and mother of pearl.
Lucky numbers are 18 and 67.
Fri May 4:
Feet On The Ground
This is not the day to tackle any simmering resentments, as you
don't feel strong enough to insist on getting your own way. Nor is it a
great time for business matters or anything that requires attention to
detail. Your need to be sympathetic and generous could get in the way
of common sense. Being concerned with material matters is beneath you
at the moment, but keep your feet on the ground.
Alluring colors are sunflower yellow and cornflower blue.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 63.
Sat May 5:
Seek balance and variety in your life under this lively Moon.
Take time with loved ones but also with casual acquaintances. You need to
sort out the situation in a sensible way and take constructive steps to
find the information this will require. Is there a mystery that you
want to get to the bottom of? Get below the surface layer of reality,
right down to the essence of things.
Excellent colors are smoky quartz and burgundy.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 15.
Sun May 6:
Your open, friendly and enthusiastic manner is attracting a
really positive response. There is a danger you could become narrowminded
if you get too involved in pet causes, but your uncanny knack of seeing
what will happen in the future is pointing you in the right direction.
Your thoughts tend to go off in ten different directions at once. Don't
overpack your schedule or get too wound up.
Fortunate colors are apricot and bright gold.
Lucky numbers are 13 and 56.
Mon May 7:
Partners will be energetic and at times quite fiery, so stay on
your toes. Throw your energy into joint co-operative ventures. If you
pull together you can achieve a great deal more than you would solo,
and it will also avoid those eyeball-to-eyeball confrontations that waste
good energy. Sell yourself with more vigor.
Positive colors are silver and lavender.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 13.
Tue May 8:
Think Things Through
Pull back from company and rushing around, Cap. Protect your
emotional state and find a chance to mull over personal matters. Play
your cards close to your chest. Companions are also preoccupied, as
they are tied up in what they are doing. If you are feeling blue, head
into your own space to think things through.
Beneficial colors are amethyst and indigo.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 10.
Wed May 9:
Review your work and see which commitments you can unload for a
few days. Children and loved ones will bring you more pleasure than usual

guided tour, or explore some other educational experience. Plans may
involve entertainment projects, social events, children s education or
activities, or speculative ventures.

Lucky numbers are 8 and 44.
Thu May 10:

your sign, increasing your natural power. Though it might go against your
instinctive grain, be openly affectionate; make that phone call you
have been putting off. Smooth over disagreements and iron out any
wrinkles. Use your talent for research to ferret out fascinating bits
of information. Your mind is razor sharp.
Excellent colors are lavender and crimson.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 9.
Fri May 11:
Lift Your Spirits
Don't let your emotions get in the way of reason, because
you're not thinking as clearly as usual. Talking incessantly about trivia
is a no-no, Your mates can't follow your drift. Sort out your
priorities and decide what you really need. If you are tempted to think
that money is the only thing that matters, there are other things that
can lift your spirits when you are low.
Advantageous colors are mulberry and cream.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 14.
Sat May 12:
Energetic companions attract you at the moment and you'll achieve
a great deal in joint efforts if you can stop arguing between yourselves.
Let a blast of fresh air blow through... just to get rid of the
cobwebs. Your moods are erratic and unpredictable. It is very difficult

others and make yourself feel badly done by. Stand up for yourself and
take control. Put yourself across with vigor and you'll make them
realize they need to pull their weight. Try not to throw all your

social occasions. Others will find you reserved but won't always know how
shy or even pre-occupied you really are.
Fortunate colors are dark green and persimmon.
Lucky numbers are 37 and 2.
Tue May 15:
As Venus begins her retro dance you become more reserved in
expressing your romantic needs. An office romance, or social event
connected with co-workers may be on your agenda, but expect some
discomfort in these areas. Review and rethink how you interact, setting
the stage for positive changes. Make more effort to break the ice and
show your inner warmth. A new diet and physical fitness program, or
beauty treatments, a new hair style, dental work, and cosmetic surgery
would normally be favoured, but unless you have already planned the
procedures it might be better to leave these until Venus turns direct in June.
Fortunate colors are silver and burgundy.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 6.
Wed May 16:
The Broader Picture
Are you ignoring certain details in your determination to see the
broader picture? Careful planning and long term vision will let things
will work out. Just remember to keep your feet on the ground. When you
get the chance to have a private moment in peace and quiet, you can think
about personal matters that have been tucked into the background. Give
yourself time to mull over the past: if you let things come to the
surface, you can really sort them out.

else wants, you want to do something different. Let no one interfere with

schedule or get too wound up about things. Remember to take a deep breath
once in a while and head for a calming corner to center yourself.

Lucky numbers are 6 and 30.
Fri May 18:
Practical Values Too
Relationships with women are looking good, Capricorn. Show
yourself in a positive way and then you'll seem both protective and
nurturing. If you take care of others, they are much more likely to
respond in like manner. Be both idealistic and generous about money and
your possessions, but don't put yourself out of touch with reality. You
need to hold practical values as you live up to your ideals.
Auspicious colors are faded oak and blue denim.
Lucky numbers are 18 and 10.
Sat May 19:
As the chatty Moon moves into Gemini, you feel more optimistic
and rather helpful. There's always a silver lining, so you might just
find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Put more energy into
making your visions come true. Maybe you are right but perhaps you need
to put your views across more subtly. If you get too pushy and try to
force your beliefs on others, it can arouse resentment.
Inspirational colors are irish moss and blue hyacinth.

to reorganize some of your working methods. If you can tap into your

you want now is more individually tailored to meet your personal needs.

unusual domestic setting without too many ties, or rules and regulations.

Mon May 21:
Your mind is more than inventive and can spot the answers you
need. Anything technical, or computer-oriented, high-tech or
mathematical, including astrology, is well-starred at the moment. Being
around too many people will make you feel overloaded. Explore your past
to understand yourself better. Don't be wary about what you might
discover, it could be better than you imagine.
Practical colors are brown sugar and lapis lazuli.
Lucky numbers are 13 and 4.

they are more likely to do the same for you.

release stress and stay balanced.
Suitable colors are whalebone and apricot.
Lucky numbers are 31 and 64.
Fri May 25:
Get A Grip
Don't get yourself in a stew by worrying than is necessary. Get a
grip of your concerns, look at the bottom line, and you will find it
all becomes much easier. If you are looking at the flaws in your close
partnerships, that does not need to mean they will end. Only unsatisfying
affairs of the heart or shaky business relationships will come to grief
Calming colors are amethyst and cinnamon.
Lucky numbers are 21 and 14.
Sat May 26:
Your emotional responses are more intense. Important, influential
or strong minded people will be drawn into your orbit, but you need to
tread softly, and not say everything you feel or think. If you are
feeling jangled or even discouraged then you need to back away from
certain people. You are susceptible to gloomy vibes that are nothing
whatsoever to do with you. Find time to re-center yourself.
Businesslike colors are old gold and burnt sienna.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 11.
Sun May 27:
Fireworks In The Air
There may be fireworks in the air. Now this can be rather
entertaining, or noisy and disruptive, depending on how you handle the
influences. Don't try to suppress what you want to say or do, but say
it firmly and clearly. Your mind may be racing so far ahead of your
tongue that you get tangled up when trying to explain what you mean.
Remember that companions may not be moving quite at your speed.
Delightful colors are yellow ochre and buckwheat.
Lucky numbers are 37 and 30.
Mon May 28:
Shrug It Off
Avoid being directly confrontational, or leaping in with
provocative comments. You will only end up losing your train of thought
and not be able to finish what you started. Take time out, since you
may be misinterpreting things. Don't get in a stew about a situation that
really just could not matter less. Shrug off suspicions and doubts.
Keep your sharp comments to yourself.
Communicative colors are cinnabar and rye bread.
Lucky numbers are 37 and 9.
Tue May 29:
Below The Surface
Heated encounters are likely, as you tend to attract
competitive people at the moment. Even your nearest and dearest are
outspoken at times, so you may have to keep the peace. You have strong
feelings that you are keeping to yourself and even close friends find
it difficult to know what runs below the surface. However, you sense that
one old resentment has finally been put to rest.
Fortunate colors are mother of pearl and purple.
Lucky numbers are 76 and 39.
Wed May 30:
Status And Achievement
Focus your mind on status and achievement, Cap. This is the
time to boost your career prospects and your reputation out in the
community. Since it is very important to you now that others appreciate
and admire what you are doing, that means you have to go out of your
way to please them. If you play your cards right you'll end up showered
Fortunate colors are rose and sable.
Lucky numbers are 13 and 24.
Thu May 31:
There are fortunate influences in the air but you have to get
into hard working mode. A little effort will turn your luck into
something long- lasting. You need to be fit, so review your lifestyle and
make some changes. Look carefully at your diet and try to incorporate
some more exercise into your daily routine. Sleep is also extremely
important and contributes to your mental state. I know it is easy for
me to say these things, but you truly will see a difference if you make
Favorable colors are bright red and jet black.
