Horoscopes are designed to forecast a person’s future in correlation with their star sign.
While most simply find it entertaining, there are others who religiously track their monthly (sometimes even daily) horoscopes.
Here is our forecast for May…
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Although Aries are known for their bravado, you have found it difficult to take action lately.
Don’t let your pride push you towards making financial decisions that can backfire during May 16’s lunar eclipse.
Throughout May, you’ll be realising just how important it is to work with people who understand and value what you bring to the table.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus are loyal, grounded, and in tune with their senses.
Nonetheless, flexibility isn’t one of your strongest traits, meaning any changes that have been occurring this year could be throwing you off.
In May, you’ll find a burst of confidence and self-awareness that can make it easier to navigate these changes, which are affecting your personal goals and relationships.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Professional opportunities seem to be coming out of nowhere, Gemini.
Although you want to relish in your success, you may start to second guess your abilities.
Don’t let your overactive mind get the better of you and if you start doubting your abilities, try practicing daily affirmations.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
In May, Cancer’s focus will be about exploring long-term wishes and making them a reality.
It will also be a time to develop your friendships and collegial relationships.
The lunar eclipse on 16 May may create tension, but you will have a chance to make amends.
Try to let your guard down and take a softer approach to understanding others in order to evolve and grow.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
May will throw a major spotlight on your professional life, Leo.
You’re already ambitious, but could be feeling extra driven this month.

Being humble may be important to avoid unnecessary situations and arguments.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
It’s important to set limits in relationships to ensure you are not pressured into feeling and acting in a way that isn’t you.

This month is about working on yourself.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Your ego may be hit by others this month, Libra, and could leave you feeling lonely. Consequently, it’s best time to reach out to family and friends.
Opening your heart and sharing your feelings can create a strong relationship and inter-personal dynamic, but you may need to confront some heavy-duty emotional terrain.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Rather than holding all of your emotions in, Scorpio will opt to discuss everything weighing heavily on their heart with a loved one this month.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, May will have you realising that it’s totally necessary to hit pause on your work life in order to bond.
While you tend to be self-sufficient, around the lunar eclipse in 15 May, your eyes will be opened to the importance of being a team player and feeling part of a community.
You could find that no matter how industrious you are when flying solo, finding your people will only serve to expedite your success.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
While the lunar eclipse on 16 May puts you in the spotlight, it also pokes at your insecurities
You may begin to doubt yourself due to a perceived lack of support from loved ones.

In other words, now’s a moment to really embrace any healing self-work you may have been putting off.

Money and fortune are in the cards for Pisces this month in the form of a promotion or raise.
