Tue May 1:
Merry May is here and so we all need to celebrate! May Day has
been a time of fun and festivity since the days of the ancient Romans and
Greeks, who honored the light through the goddess Maia, after whom the
month of May is named. Mars and the Moon are in cahoots in Virgo, your
opposite sign, so be sure to treat your opposite number with care and
consideration, as indiscreet comments could see some fireworks! Read more
on May Day.
Positive colors are dark red and shimmering purple.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 12.
Wed May 2:
Watch Your Step
If someone you fancy suddenly seems absolutely fascinating, watch
your step. You know in your heart of hearts they are not really very good
for you, but all the same you think they are wonderful. Enjoy the feeling
but avoid the trap. Anyone who makes you feel controlled or restricted is
not going to be worth it. It may take an upheaval before you free
yourself up to act as you please, but that's the process, isn't it?
Favorable colors are cerulean and mandarin.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 11.
Thu May 3:
Your emotional responses are more intense as important,
influential or strong-minded people are drawn into your orbit. Try not to
say everything you feel or think. You will be covering the same ground
for a while, so try not to go round in circles. You are feeling more
impressionable than usual, and able to take in different viewpoints. Be
more detached and observant and you see the whole picture much better.
Confident colors are blackberry and vermilion.
Lucky numbers are 21 and 35.
Fri May 4:
You won't want to do anything physically strenuous for a day or
so: pamper and protect yourself. Focus in on the activities or companions
who make you feel good. You really would much prefer to escape into
your inner dream world. Give yourself quiet time to reflect and question.
But try not to lose touch with what's going on around you. If you
overlook things you would have to backtrack at a later date which would
be a bore.
Beneficial colors are dark blue and bright gold.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 22.
Sat May 5:
Don't stick yourself in tedious routines, dear Pisces, or get
bogged down in following orders under this powerful Full Moon. Watch
you don't get crossed lines and mixed messages. There could be
communication or even travel muddles if you don't keep your eye on the
ball. Open up to other people a bit more. Maybe you feel you would be
humiliated if you disclose all your best ideas, but you could gain a
lot from creative discussions.
Creative colors are teal blue and avocado.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 14.
Sun May 6:
You should be able to settle old differences amicably now and see
clearly which relationships in your life can develop further. Those which
have outlived their time and have no potential for further growth, will
be quietly dropped with a minimum of fuss. New and better friendships
or romances will arrive to take their place. Companions will notice a new
spirit of defiance in you, as you insist on going your own highly
Auspicious colors are lemon and lime.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 40.
Mon May 7:
Demand the right to be yourself, dear Pisces, even if significant
others are on the warpath. No one should be allowed to push you into a
corner and demand that you do your duty. Just watch that you do not take
too many risks if you are sporty since the Moon versus Mars can be a
rather headstrong energy.
Beneficial colors are platinum and blueberry.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 38.
Tue May 8:
Your feelings are more on public display than usual, dear Pisces.
Work is more scattered, but you'll find the right support. Don't
overreact, hearing slights where none exist. Stand steady for other
people and be an anchor. You may come across as cool and detached when
emotional intimacy is demanded today, but that's because your attention
is focused elsewhere, on more practical matters.
Favorable colors are rose quartz and blue sapphire.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 10.
Wed May 9:
This Way And That
You are preoccupied with money matters at the moment, because you
may need to sing for your supper. However, the more you talk the more you
will earn, and with Mercury joining the Sun in your zone of communication
and contacts, you'll be chatting nineteen to the dozen. Your routine is
busier than usual, so don't skip over details even if you are pulled in
Opportune colors are bright yellow and burnt orange.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 78.
Thu May 10:
Chat Chat Chat
Look up some friends and have a good time, dear Fish. You are a
real chatterbox now, lively and enthusiastic, determined to get your
ideas and opinions across to everyone. If your mind is racing ahead,
leaping from subject to subject at computer speed, slower companions
may have problems keeping up.
Friendly colors are lincoln green and mushroom.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 36.
Fri May 11:
It's hard to sit still and cooperate easily with others now.
Everyone seems to be marching to a different drum. Are you feeling a
bit discouraged, or low in self-esteem for no particular reason? Don't
make the mistake of assuming that being left to your own devices is a
sign that you are unloved. Instead try to treat it as a blessing in
disguise and take advantage of this opportunity for a bit of emotional
Favorable colors are pearly grey and pale pink.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 45.
Sat May 12:
A boisterous mood will see you bouncing back into life in a major
way. At work it's time to take on more responsibility, so you can show
what you are made of. A difficult aspect to Jupiter reflects a disharmony
between Sun and Moon, so stay out of wild schemes. Love is in the air
after midnight, and may lead to a long term commitment.
Beneficial colors are rust red and jet black.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 46.
Sun May 13:
The Moon's in your sign, dear Fish, dancing with Venus and
Saturn. What a beautiful feeling for Mothers Day! And Jupiter, your
life-ruler, is embracing the Sun in a stately quadrille that is sure to
boost your travel plans and spiritual education. Be sure to get in touch
with your mother i you can't be there in person. The cosmos is
showering waves of love and good fortune for you both! More on Mothers Day.
Fortunate colors are apricot and pistachio.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 4.
Mon May 14:
Picking Up Pace
Work is picking up pace, Pisces. The cosmos urges you to put
something that is uniquely you into it before you can settle into this
new routine. Anything which corners you or ties you down to someone
else's agenda won't do. At home, you're more sensitive and emotional than
usual. Happy family relations do seem to be on offer. You will have an
intuitive feel for whatever is happening, but you may overreact to the
slightest whiff of criticism.
Ideal colors are daffodil yellow and peacock blue.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 22.
Tue May 15:
As Venus begins her retro phase, it's time to cuddle up to
those who make you feel warm and wonderful. Your family relationships may
require extra patience and attention. Turn the other cheek rather than
striking out in anger... nothing will be solved using aggression or
direct pressure. Listen carefully to your family's concerns and match
your responses carefully. Home business and real estate are stimulated,
but issues from the past will need attention.
Favorable colors are buttercup and salmon pink.
Lucky numbers are 21 and 22.
Wed May 16:
Push And Pull
You make it your business to know everything about everybody at
the moment, since you need all the necessary facts at your disposal. This
need for security may be pushing you one way and your desire for
extravagances pulling you the other! You feel as though you're going in
opposite directions at the same time. You want to feel protected, but
indulge your senses and you'll pay for it later.
Favorable colors are navy and tan.
Lucky numbers are 21 and 23.
Thu May 17:
The current influences make you restless, impatient and
determined to break free of routine. You yearn to do things that are new,
exciting and challenging. It's as if you are a chrysalis -- torn away
from the past and about to be reborn. Friends and family notice a new
spirit of defiance, as you insist on going your own way.
Liberating colors are bright red and sapphire blue.
Lucky numbers are 31 and 59.
Fri May 18:
Spreading yourself too thin is very likely now, my Fishy
friend. Watch you don't get too frazzled. Buzz buzz buzz. If you can
become detached from your feelings and thoughts, you'll find it easier to
concentrate. Dissatisfied with practical matters? Who, you..? As
always, you want to withdraw into your inner world. Ask yourself
searching questions about the meaning and purpose of life, your life.
Intuitive Pisces, you know the answers do not lie in the physical
world, but are found in the spiritual realms. Seek and ye shall find.
Lively colors are spring green and warm gold.
Lucky numbers are 33 and 55.
Sat May 19:
Changes In The Wind
It's time to sort out any family tensions that have been swept
under the carpet recently. Perhaps there has been no time to address them
in the way you would have liked. More sensitive and private than usual,
you retreat into your shell and put up defensive barriers against the
world. Take heart -- you are going to attract people in the weeks to
come, both at home and at work, that will result in a partnership.
Positive colors are russet and lilac.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 44.
Sun May 20:
New Moon Solar Eclipse
If there have been family rifts or differences recently, the
New Moon, a solar eclipse in Gemini, urges you to wipe the slate clean
and start again. Don't wait to be approached -- reach out and spread a
little harmony. More for your own sake than anything else, you seek peace
and calm. It's the right time to be idealistic about money now, not
bogged down in petty materialistic concerns. Money should be used for
Fortunate colors are ultramarine and mustard yellow.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 22.
Mon May 21:
Snap decisions? You're intuitive, and you so know you're right,
but at the end of it all, you might just have been a bit hasty. Answers
come through taking things a little more slowly. Power struggles may
occur, as influential people try to call the shots and you don't have a
lot of choices. You do have a choice about what you are doing and what
attitude you take.
Fortunate colors are moonstone and royal purple.
Lucky numbers are 24 and 27.
Tue May 22:
You have a wonderful way of sweeping other people up in your
enthusiasm, dear Fish. This should produce good results today, with
Jupiter and Venus both active in the heavens encouraging high spirits,
vitality and good health. Throw yourself wholeheartedly into
communicating your intentions, and keep the home fires burning.
Everything looks very rosy indeed.
Beneficial colors are teal blue and pale pink.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 16.
Wed May 23:
Your magnetic personality, always charming and persuasive, is
boosted by the charming Cancer Moon. There is much to do in the coming
week and it's a very romantic time for you now, so make the most of it.
If you have children, get a babysitter or grandma to look after them
and make a home-cooked meal with candles and the works. A warm, scented
bath for two, scattered with flower petals will get you both in the mood...
Ideal colors are burnished bronze and burnished gold.
Lucky numbers are 15 and 2.
Thu May 24:
Your enthusiasm is lovely and infectious, but don't get carried
away. Earth to Pisces, hello... Try and be sensible if you possibly
can. You expect everyone to be as honest as you are, which can set you up
for disappointment. Mercury's move to Gemini helps you communicate with
your household. This will be helpful as Venus moves through her
retrograde phase, making it even more important for you to share your
thoughts and ideas clearly and openly with your family members.
Auspicious colors are lemon and lime.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 72.
Fri May 25:
Don't let feelings of inadequacy hold you back. Proceed slowly
and pay particular attention to detail. You can only do so much, and
not all your achievements can be spectacular. Romance and your social
life seem more like work than work itself at times. Loved ones feel
like a heavy responsibility now, but out of this testing time comes
some truly valuable insights which will give you strength in the future.
Fortunate colors are caramel and navy.
Lucky numbers are 25 and 23.
Sat May 26:
Others are demanding a lot of you, which could leave you
feeling resentful and the Moon triggers your martyr complex. Having to
fit in all the time with other people's plans can be a bore. Give what
you can, but don't be taken for granted. You may be questioning whether
or not your work is worthwhile and where you really want to be in the
Beneficial colors are hazelnut and pistachio.
Lucky numbers are 56 and 1.
Sun May 27:
Restless? Highly strung? Not prepared to give in to other
people's demands, you won't take kindly to people telling you what to do.
Others may call you uncooperative, but you see it as standing up for your
rights. Compromise does not sit easily with you at the moment.
Actually, you'll be wonderfully tolerant as long as everyone gives you
a good deal of elbow room.
Auspicious colors are peacock blue and daffodil yellow.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 14.
Mon May 28:
Subtlety Wins The Day
This is a subtle, sensitive, sympathetic day. You put yourself
across to people in a way that makes them understand where you are coming
from, and you have a magical way of understanding what they're all about.
It's a good time to remove anything outworn or inessential from your
life, but don't go overboard! This is not the time to issue ultimatums,
especially to family members.
Favorable colors are mustard yellow and charcoal grey.
Lucky numbers are 21 and 26.
Tue May 29:
You're very up-front where romance is concerned. You know what
you want and you won't be shy about stating your needs. Accidents are
likely because you are acting rather recklessly, so take special care.
At times you feel like a volcano about to overflow. Try to avoid
hurting sensitive feelings by speaking too hastily.
Passionate colors are brilliant red and silvery purple.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 52.
Wed May 30:
Confidential concerns, joint finances and intimate emotional
matters are being lit by the lunar light now. More emotionally intense
than usual, you need to be careful not to magnify certain situations into
something bigger than they are. It would be sensible to play your cards
close to your chest until you've calmed down.
Empowering colors are royal purple and antique gold.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 16.
Thu May 31:
If you fly too high you have further to fall, my sweet Fish. Your
domestic and family security is more important than usual to you at the
moment, with all that cosmic emphasis on tricky Gemini, Why not step back
from your busy schedule to take stock? If your work-load allows you. Try
and restructure your life so you can put your feet up more regularly.
Could you work from home sometimes? There are always options.
Inspirational colors are emerald green and sapphire blue.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 20.
