Aquarius Horoscope May 2019


Aquarius (21 January – 18 February)

It’s a lively start to the month for you. Communication planet, Mercury, is in Aries and your communication zone until the 6th. Mercury’s joined here by the planet of relating, Venus, until the 15th. 

Community Matters

Aries is a speedy sign, forthright and direct. It might be hard to hold back during the start of May. Instead, you’re ready to speak up and find your voice. Community matters too as both Mercury and Venus are social planets. If you’re looking to network or sell, think about how you can tap in to your local community to find contacts and connections.

Also, notice who or what is holding you back. Saturn, your traditional ruler, is currently in Capricorn and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. It’s here along with Pluto, the planet that dives in deep. 

These two planets turn your attention inwards and towards the past. They can be a gloomy, unhelpful influence if you find yourself stuck or unable to move. Take care you don’t end up listening to your inner critic if s/he turns out to be harsh and unsupportive. 

Inner Demons

This influence is useful if you harness it constructively and focus on personal development and inner transformation. In this way, you may get rid of demons or negative vibes that hold you back.

Saturn and Pluto are strongest on the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. On these dates, you may encounter opposition from other people. Choose your companions wisely and veer away from anyone who drags you down. It’s one thing to be there for other people and to help when you can. It’s another to end up feeling swamped by another’s person’s challenging emotions.

Also, you have Jupiter, the planet of positive vibes, currently in Sagittarius and your friendship and group sector. Therefore, it looks as if you have plenty of people in your life now who are good for you and boost your spirits. Line up something social and fun for the first weekend in May, as this is when Jupiter’s influence is strong.

Play Time

As May begins, the focus is on play rather than work and it’s here where you’re wise to focus your energy. Action planet, Mars, is in Gemini and your fellow air sign until the 21st. This highlights the sector of your horoscope that rules romance and love affairs, children and pregnancy, entertainment and fun.

You’re at your best when you’re involved in high jinks and good times, so make the most of this vibe and throw yourself into life.

If you’re looking for love, events could move swiftly while Mars is in Gemini and again on or close to the 21st. This is the date when both the Sun and talk planet Mercury enter Gemini and immediately make a super conjunction. It would be a great time to ask someone out on a date or sign up to an online dating site.

There’s humour and lightness in this whole combination so seek out laughter and comedy and be around people who are good for you. Children are included here, younger people, teenagers. Line up some social events, throw a party.

Group Connections

This whole planetary vibe is ideal for joining in with other people, whatever your chosen goal. This is not a month to go it alone. Instead, there are huge benefits from teaming up with others, whether in the name of a good cause or to further yourself in some way. 

If you’re a typical Aquarius, you navigate towards groups and playing your part within society, activism, politics, the world. This is where great fulfilment, purpose and meaning can be found.

Events at home and within your family are also notable this month. The inner planets make their way steadily through Taurus, the star sign at the base of your horoscope. The New Moon on the 4th falls in Taurus, an excellent date for new beginnings, catching up with family, finding someone new to live.

Uranus & The Lure of the New

Also, there’s a theme of the new when it comes to these areas of your life, thanks to your co-ruler, Uranus. In March, Uranus took up residence in Taurus and remains here for the next seven years. This can sometimes feel rootless and gets you ready for change. Other times, external events kick in and you find yourself on the move unexpectedly.

Uranus is strong this month on the 8th, 18th and 22nd. These are dates to plan accordingly, whether you’re surprising someone in your family or you check out a new home on a whim. Your living situation could change suddenly or perhaps, you choose to move into a commune or a collective living space. 

When Uranus is in the mix, anything goes and you’re more likely to enjoy an unconventional or alternative style of living.

Career Crossroads

New developments at work could be one reason why you’re thinking of or having to change where you live. Action planet Mars moves into Cancer and your work and lifestyle sector on the 16th. Plus, two days later, the Full Moon falls in Scorpio and your career sector.

This whole combination feels lively, thanks to Uranus once again. See what opportunities come your way and think outside of the box when it comes to your career and vocation. You might find yourself at a crossroads now and have more than one option ahead of you. If anything, you’re likely to choose the path which gives you more freedom and space in your life.

Capricorn Horoscope May 2019


Capricorn (22 December – 20 January)

Weighty personal decisions are the order of the day as May begins. It’s not easy to escape karma when your planet Saturn has just turned retrograde and is now tracking the South Node through your star sign.

Turning Inwards

This combination turns your attention inwards. Think of this as an opportunity to let go and release what no longer serves you. There might be an instant solution but, in some cases, this could be the start of four-month project or challenge.

Events at the start of May can help reveal more and give you insight and understanding into what this means for you. On the 1st & 2nd, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn clash with Mercury in Aries. On the 7th & 9th, the same two planets clash with Venus in Aries.

Aries is your home and family sector, your past and where you come from. Mercury rules communication and Venus rules close relationships. Put this all together and it looks as if you’re having to deal with past issues before you can move on. 

You might be caring for a parent or child, you may be taking a trip into the past to your family home or the place you were born. Or perhaps, you’re shedding stuff from the past that you no longer need. This could be in the shape of possessions, selling a property or letting go of past beliefs that are of no benefit.

Seek the Light

In to the midst of this key planetary activity comes Jupiter in Sagittarius, the person with the positive outlook, your leaning towards trust, hope and faith. Don’t allow negative people or negative thought hold you back. Look at new ways, new opportunities to find the light and dispel the shadow.

For some of you, this may lead you towards a spiritual path, a religion or faith. For others, you recognise the promise of freedom and lining up new wants and needs for your future path. Jupiter’s a positive influence in your life, once you identify who or what it means for you.

More Play

Also, there’s strong earth sign energy this month and this too is a clue where happiness can be found. Throughout May, the inner planets are moving steadily through Taurus and the sector of your horoscope that rules play and entertainment, children and fun, romance and good times.

The Sun is here until the 21st and the New Moon on the 4th falls in this part of your birth chart. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings, great for setting intentions and sowing seeds. If you’re feeling bored, you want a change of scene or you’re ready to do something wild and exciting, leap into action on the New Moon.

The fortnight after the New Moon is ideal for new initiatives, being proactive and getting ahead. If you’ve fallen into the trap of work, this month’s planetary activity is an opportunity to recalibrate and find a healthier work/life balance.

Sensual Cravings

Taurus is a sensual earth sign, hands on and benefits from walks in nature, cooking, gardening, massage, sculpture and art. Find yourself a hobby and tap into your creative side. Do whatever works for you so you feel grounded and connected to the earth.

There is another factor in Taurus right now that brings something electric, different, a little bit crazy. This is the planet Uranus representing change which took up residence in Taurus in March of this year. 

Uranus is in action this month on the 8th and the 18th. At its best, Uranus is a spontaneous influence, urging you to be wild, hedonistic and enjoy yourself. If you’re a typical Capricorn, you’re not the impulsive type. Yet, this month, you could find that other people and external events are the catalyst, the trigger for surprises.

It may be your children or grandchildren who are a good influence on you. It might be a lover, a new romance that leaves you feeling giddy and playful. Or perhaps, it’s being around younger friends, unconventional and alternative types whose outlook and views on life are exciting and refreshing. Open yourself up to adventure and new experiences. Life is calling you forth.

Work Progress

Work and routine, lifestyle and health are also in the cosmic mix this month. Action planet, Mars, is in Gemini and this sector of your horoscope until the 16th. Mars is ambitious and go-getting. This adds drive to your determination to get your working life in order and to find time for healthy activities too.

On the 21st, the Sun and Mercury move into Gemini as well. In fact, on the same day, there’s a super conjunction of the Sun and Mercury, bringing a lightbulb moment, a stroke of genius. This would be an excellent date to line up an important work meeting or interview or to apply for a job.

You might receive good news or find yourself coming up with a great idea that you want to share with everyone. The key to work success and progress is to act fast in May and make things happen.

Passionate Liaisons

Love is also under the cosmic spotlight later in the month once passion planet Mars enters Cancer and your relationship sector on the 16th. Two days later, there’s an intense Full Moon in Scorpio on the 18th and a Venus/Uranus conjunction promises fun and games.

Anything goes at this Full Moon but it’s gorgeous for new love and opening your heart. Mars and Uranus unite on the 22nd keeping the feel-good vibe continuing for a while longer. There are never any guarantees where Uranus is concerned but that’s partly the nature of love. Grab it while you can.

Sagittarius Horoscope May 2019


Sagittarius (23 November – 21 December)

There’s some lively astrology taking place as May gets underway lighting up your romance and relationship sectors. In fact, the 1st could turn out to be a special date in this respect as Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini are working together.

Mutual Connections

Aries is your romance sector and Gemini is your relationship sector and the planets are in each other’s star sign. This is called mutual reception in astrology and it’s a helpful, supportive influence. This would be an ideal date for a significant conversation or to leap in and make things happen when it comes to love.

In fact, the first few weeks of May could be truly lovely. You have Venus, the planet of love, in Aries and your romance sector until the 15th and Mars, the planet of sex and passion, in Gemini and your relationship sector until the 16th.

Top dates are the 3rd, 5th, 9th & 14th. The first three dates are when your planet Jupiter joins in the fun. Jupiter expands what it touches so make the most of life and bring your positive outlook not only to your love life but other areas as well.

Make An Impact

Jupiter is currently enhancing your star sign, Sagittarius, and this highlights your personal goals and aims, your image and profile. Turn the cosmic telescope towards yourself. Notice how the world sees you and whether you can do more to make an impact. At its best, your star sign is great at viewing the glass half full, finding the silver lining in the cloud and being grateful for what you have.

The whole vibe of the start of May is about actively enjoying your life, throwing yourself into things and having fun. It’s about play and creativity, entertainment and spontaneity. If you’re a parent, it’s a key time in the year to hang out with your kids and let their love of life rub off on you. 

Shake off any worries and remember that a healthy work/life balance suits you best. You’re a hedonist at heart, a free spirit and it’s when you trust in life that you allow magic to enter in.

Contracts & Partnerships

Relationships also figure strongly when the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, unite on the 14th. This is a great date for reconciliation and enhancing your close relationships in any way you see fit. Venus and Mars are the female and masculine principles. Use both to complement one another and find a healthy balance between the two.

On the 21st, there’s another wave of planetary energy in Gemini. The Sun moves here alongside Mercury, the planet of communication, and they make a super conjunction on the same day. This is great for agreeing a contract, joint ventures and significant conversations.

Mercury likes to move quickly, be spontaneous, make things happen. Use the right words, say the right thing and you can achieve a lot now. This combination is helpful for both your personal life and your professional world.

Mercury is your partner planet so look out for person who can help you, someone who appears in your life at the right time. Expert advice, a coach or mentor could accelerate your progress, especially when you find the exact right person to meet your needs. Seek out the person who ‘gets you’, who understands your inner motivations.

Getting Organised

Aside from the lively vibe, this is a good month to focus on everyday matters too. In fact, the two go hand in hand. Sort out the basics of life, work on your time management, get more organised and you’ll create more space for fun, play and the good things in life. 

Do be careful of over-spending, however, or committing more money than you can afford. This is the cautionary note early in May as the outer planets, Saturn and Pluto, continue to move through Capricorn and your personal money sector. They are not planets linked to joy and good times. Instead, they urge caution, being realistic, setting up a savings plan rather than spending.

The inner planets are moving steadily through Taurus, one of the earth signs, in May. Taurus rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health. The New Moon in Taurus on the 4th is an ideal date to start a new exercise routine or put healthy habits in place to support you moving forwards. Think mind, body, soul too and be holistic in your approach to good health.

Money & Security

The planets moving through Taurus are also an indication on how to improve your finances. Earth signs dominate your work and money sectors. Therefore, working hard can reap rewards. It’s the steady job, the regular employment that brings financial security your way.

Bear this in mind moving through May and have a clear plan of where you’re heading with regard to work and money. This is also the theme of the Full Moon, which takes place on the 18th. This Full Moon cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. Trust your intuition when it comes to work and health and take time out if you can to reassess the bigger picture of your life.

Often during the Full Moon, you gain a sense of clarity as head and heart are working in unison. There may be a link to the past as well, as there’s a sense of karma about this Full Moon. You may be rewarded for past favours or a similar vibe.

Lateral Thinking

You can’t, however, ignore the influence of Uranus, the planet of change, moving through Taurus. This signifies doing things differently, thinking unconventionally and outside of the box. This month, Uranus is strong on the 8th, 18th and 22nd. You might have a brilliant work idea on or around these dates or be able to make money and fast.

Take advantage of change to boost your own situation. Admittedly, sometimes Uranus brings unexpected events and you have to change your future path accordingly. Combining the old with the new is a wise strategy this month, especially with regard to your work and prospects.

Scorpio Horoscope May 2019


Scorpio (24 October – 22 November)

Money Mindset

Your ruling planet, Mars, is in Gemini and your joint finance sector until the 15th. This is about shared resources, also inheritance, your legacy and what you receive from the past. It’s wise to dig deep into your psyche during this time, to unlock your hidden motivations.

Notice whether your beliefs hold you back around money. If so, use this transit of Mars to work on changing your mindset. This is worth doing because you also have the expansive planet, Jupiter, in Sagittarius and your personal money sector.

Jupiter’s currently retrograde turning your attention inwards. This is often a time when inner work benefits you. Either that or draw up a long-term plan ready to put into action when Jupiter turns direct in August 2019.

Early in May, however, Jupiter’s very active and opposes your planet Mars on the 5th. Also, during this period, Jupiter makes helpful connections to Mercury on the 3rd and Venus on the 9th. This whole combination is lively for money and it’s here where you’re wise to focus your efforts.

Turn your attention to money matters, whether you’re keen to earn more or you want to use the money you have to good effect. One word of caution is not to get overly carried away. Ensure that any schemes and dreams are based in reality. Pursue the possible goal rather than try to attain what’s impossible.

If you’re a typical Scorpio, you tend to be savvy with money. Trust your natural instincts about what feels right and what’s going to lead you to the allegorical pot of gold. 

Swift Progress

The key planets in Aries early in the month are Mercury (communication) and Venus (love/money). Therefore, you do need to work hard in order to reap the benefits. Teamwork is essential and knowing the right person to contact to help you make progress. Think expert advice. 

The date to note is the 1st, when Mercury and Mars are in mutual reception, i.e. in each other’s star sign. This means they’re working together in cahoots. It’s an ideal opportunity to walk your talk and put your thoughts into action. Act swiftly as both planets benefit from a speedy response.

Beware the Spiral

There will be some people in your life who try and talk you out of your good ideas or worry you with their doom & gloom theories. Saturn and Pluto are currently in Capricorn and your communication sector. This can represent authority figures holding you back or conversations you have that leave you feeling despondent.

The key dates to note are the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. Choose your confidantes carefully during the first part of the month and be around people who raise your confidence, your vibe.

Also, watch out for negative thinking on your own part. If you’re a typical Scorpio, there will be a side of your nature that can spiral inwards. You’re a deep, soulful thinker. This also means you reach places that other people never dare venture into. You might be processing hidden emotions this month and bringing them to the light, in order to release them.

Fast Money

Play your cards right financially and you could find that you’re able to make swift progress on or around the 21st. On this date, both the Sun and Mercury enter Gemini and make a super conjunction. This is brilliant for a consultation, meeting or a genius idea.

It would be a good date to choose to draw up a new financial strategy and look at ways of boosting your finances. Work alongside other people and share your good ideas.

The areas of life mentioned are where there’s a fast pace this month and things can happen quickly. There are other areas of your life, however, where you’re wise to take things slowly, even if life steps in and brings the unexpected.

Partnership Matters

One such area is your close relationships. There’s not one day this month where an inner planet isn’t moving steadily through Taurus and your relationship sector. Plus, the New Moon and Full Moon also highlight this area of your life.

The New Moon takes place on the 4th, a symbol of new beginnings. It falls in Taurus, so there’s a chance to start afresh when it comes to love and relationship. This could be a personal partnership or a business partnership. It’s great for joint ventures and signing contracts, as well as reviving a personal union.

Also, you now have the planet of change, Uranus, in Taurus and your relationship sector. It took up residence here in March and is in action this month on the 8th and 18th. Uranus favours spontaneity, acting fast, turning life on its head. 

It can be fun and exciting, never stable and boring. Anything goes when Uranus is in action. Bear this in mind with regard to your close relationships, as it could be a truly, exciting month for you.

A Passionate Full Moon

The key date to note is the 18th for two reasons. Firstly, this is the day of the Full Moon in your star sign Scorpio. Full Moons heighten emotions, your sign of Scorpio is passionate, even obsessive and people go a little bit crazy on the Full Moon.

On the very same day, there’s a Venus/Uranus conjunction in Taurus. Venus is the planet of love and your partner planet and Uranus promises something special. Certainly, you can guarantee that life won’t remain the same. Someone new may enter your life on or around this date or your situation may change dramatically.

There’s also a foreign theme during this period as your planet Mars enters Cancer and your travel sector on the 16th. Plus, Mars teams up with Uranus on the 22nd. 

This could highlight a holiday romance, a second honeymoon or hearing from a lover who lives abroad. And, if love’s not foreground in your life right now, be your own best friend and line up an exciting adventure or new experience.

Libra Horoscope May 2019


Libra (23 September – 23 October)

Your ruling planet, Venus, remains in Aries and your relationship sector until the 15th. As you’ve experienced two Full Moons in Libra in March and April, this continues to be a powerful time for you and your close relationships.

Heart-felt Relationships

Issues could be magnified or you find that you’re being lead by your emotions, your heart. Jupiter is the big planet and on the 3rd, 5th and 9th, Jupiter’s in action. This is expansive and heart-felt, whether relationships are overwhelming or you’re in the throes of love. 

Also, Venus and Mars, the lovers of the heavens, unite on the 14th and this is special. These two planets don’t connect very often but when they do, it’s time to sit up and take notice. Venus is in Aries and your relationship sector and Mars is in Gemini and the sector that rules foreign connections, the bigger picture.

This could signal a holiday romance or choosing to go away with the one you love. If you want to spice up a close relationship, do something different and life-enhancing together. It would be a  wonderful time to go on a big adventure.

The one question mark is that Venus isn’t strong in Aries, so be careful not to lose yourself in love or allow other people to dominate. Work at boosting your self esteem, especially if relationship issues are heightened.

If you’re a typical Libra, relationships are important to you, whether you’re in one or out of one. You tend to gravitate towards 1-to-1 partnerships in all areas of your life. Many of you are happiest when you’re in love and in a healthy, working relationship.

Past Ties

Also, there may be some issues at home or opposition from your family early this month. Key planets in Aries and your relationship sector clash with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and your home and family sector. The dates to note are the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. 

It depends on your current situation what this means to you. Notice if you’re allowing the past to hold you back and consider where family are a pull or a tie. Saturn and Pluto are linked to authority and power, so themes of responsibility and duty may loom large. Perhaps, you need to care for a parent or someone else in your life is trying to lead you down a road that’s not of your choosing.

Notice too, where you’re stuck in the past and can’t move on. This might be linked to an ex, a past love situation or something personal to you. Be gentle with yourself if this is true for you. Aries energy is fast and furious but flaring up will only cause arguments and may push you further apart rather than bring you closer together.

Tests & Travel

This is also a month when travel or study calls you forth. In fact, this could be your chance of doing things independently and setting off on a new adventure. Action planet Mars is in Gemini and this sector of your horoscope until the 16th and the Sun and communication planet, Mercury, enter Gemini on the 21st.

The 21st could turn out to be a special date as there’s a super conjunction between the Sun and Mercury. This would be a great time to take an exam or test and flex your intellectual muscle. Being one of the air signs, you’re a clever cookie so make the most of your personal skill set. Focus on what you do well and you could be rewarded in return.

Money Wizard

Money, possessions, values and self-worth are also foreground during May. In fact, this is a dominant theme of the month. Your planet, Venus, moves into Taurus and one of your money sectors on the 15th and this is your time to act.

Also, notice what happens on or around the New Moon in Taurus on the 4th. A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings, a chance to make a fresh start. Earth signs, like Taurus, favour financial and emotional security. 

You could receive a gift or bonus on or around this date. Alternatively, there might be a surprise around money, and perhaps not a welcome one. It is wise ensuring your money is safe and secure this month and you know what’s coming in and going out. Become a money wizard and get on top of your finances.

High Stakes

This is important because in March, the planet of change and the unexpected, Uranus, moved into Taurus. It takes up residence here for the next seven years. This is rarely a stable influence on your finances. You can make money fast but you see downswings as well as upswings.

Uranus is in action this month on the 8th & the 18th. The 18th is particularly significant for you. This is the date when your planet Venus meets Uranus and there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac.

This is big planetary energy, emotional, volatile and exciting. Taking a risk, playing big in life could reap rewards on or around this date. You might be able to take advantage of a changing financial market or find that money comes your way unexpectedly.

It is lively astrology, however, so be aware that a high risk strategy won’t always pay off. If you want to speculate, ensure you can afford to lose what you invest before leaping into action.

On the whole, however, the astrology feels promising. Also, during this period, action planet Mars enters Cancer and your career sector. Mars teams up with Uranus in a helpful planetary aspect on the 22nd. This combination suggests that being daring and bold could pay off for you big-time.

Virgo Horoscope May 2019


Virgo (23 August – 22 September)

This is a month to get ahead and fast. This is the message of your ruling planet, Mercury, as it whizzes through three star signs and three different sectors of your horoscope. Yes, there will be a few challenges or obstacles to overcome but quick thinking and and fast action solves most issues.

Speedy Action

It all starts for you on the 1st when there’s a helpful connection between your planet Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini. This is important because the two planets representing speed are in each other’s star sign. In astrology, this is called mutual reception and it suggests the planets are working together and cooperating with each other.

This lights up your joint finance sector (Aries) and your career and vocation sector (Gemini). Therefore, it’s about work and money and this is where you can make progress swiftly as May begins. In fact, what you initiate or get moving on early in the month could quickly accelerate and bring you success before May is over.

Help Is At Hand

Mercury’s also working well with big planet Jupiter in Sagittarius and your home and family sector. This will be evident on the first weekend of May. It would be an ideal time to get together with family or help one another out financially. 

Pooling resources, working with family, taking care of one another is the theme of this connection. It’s also helpful if you’re moving home, looking for new accommodation or, in some shape or form, making money from the place you live. You could also be discussing plans for later in the year, the month of August in particular.

Onwards & Upwards

Action planet, Mars, remains in Gemini and your career sector until the 16th. This adds drive and ambition to your career toolbox. Mars is assertive, dynamic and go-getting. You might be looking at ways to create more variety in what you do or take on an extra job or role.

There could be some rumblings from family or people close to you, either holding you back or needing your attention. This might issues around include child care or deciding who has the kids when if you and your partner are no longer together. 

There’s a question mark around lovers as well early in May, especially someone who’s putting demands on you. The key dates to note are the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. If in doubt, don’t let anyone hold you back now as the forward-moving vibe is taking place at the top of your horoscope. This is an excellent month to get ahead.

Career Peak

The peak astrology takes place on the 21st. On this date, both your planet, Mercury, and the Sun move into Gemini and your career sector. On the same day, they make a super conjunction. This is red-hot for you and an excellent date to plan a meeting or interview, to take a step up the career ladder.

It’s your chance to shine bright, for other people to notice your talents. Don’t hold back on or around this date and don’t hide your light away. It’s your chance to be vocal about what you can do and how you can bring your skills to the table. You’re right to get excited about work and vocational matters and to spread the word about what you’re aiming for.

Foreign Connections

There is another strong calling this month towards travel and study. Therefore, see how you can combine the two. Travel is wonderful for shifting your perspective and bringing new opportunities your way.

This month may coincide with a business trip or a plan to extend your business globally. Foreign connections are well-starred now and fizzing with excitement. This has a lot to do with Uranus’ recent move into Taurus and your travel and study sector. It took up residence here in March and is lively this month on the 8th and 18th.

Notice what opportunities pop up on or around these dates. Being spontaneous and taking a risk could work out for the best. Earth sign energy is strong in May and this is your element. Trust your natural instincts and follow any hints or clues that lead you in a new direction.

Uranus is unpredictable so you do also need to be prepared for the unexpected, especially if you’re travelling or studying on or around the dates mentioned. Allow yourself extra time if necessary and be willing and flexible to take a diversion if needed.

Uranus brings change which taps into the mutable side of your Virgo nature. Even though you’re an earth sign and you need security in life, you also crave variety. Bear this in mind in May and see what adventures or new experiences you can line up.

Expand Your Life

The New and Full Moons also highlight this same sector of your horoscope. The New Moon on the 4th is an excellent date to plan a trip or to sign up for a course. Either that or ensure you’re away. Ringing the changes is a good theme to bear in mind now as anything new and different will be a breath of fresh air.

The Full Moon takes place on the 18th when the Moon shines its light bright. This is a strong time to tap into your natural intuition and to do what feels right. You may sense a pull towards finding a deeper meaning or purpose in life. 

This Full Moon falls in Scorpio, one of the water signs and your communication sector. Expand your thinking on or around this Full Moon and open up your world. It might be a friend or someone you’ve known for a long time who introduces you to an alternative outlook, a new way at viewing the world. It could turn out to be a truly soul-ful experience.

Leo Horoscope May 2019


Leo (23 July – 22 August)

Looking Ahead

This is the time of year when your ruler, the Sun, is in Taurus, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope. The Sun remains here until the 21st which means it’s an excellent month to look ahead, to decide where you’re going and why.

Taurus rules your career and vocation, status and reputation. Look back over previous years to see whether May was a stand-out month for you. This time around, the planetary vibe is forward-moving and, on the whole, the Sun gets helpful aspects from other key planets. Therefore, focus on these areas of life and see what you can achieve over the next few weeks.

This starts with the New Moon in Taurus on the 4th, a symbol of new beginnings. This is a pure New Moon. It gets support from Neptune in Pisces and your joint finance sector, exact on the 9th. Then, from Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and your work and lifestyle sector, exact on the 11th & 14th respectively.

Team Work

Plus, as the month continues, other key planets join the Sun in Taurus. Communication planet, Mercury, is here from the 6th until the 21st and the planet of relating, Venus, enters Taurus on the 15th.

Look to your colleagues, socialise and focus on team work during these periods. Both Mercury and Venus are socially-oriented so this is about creating strong bonds with other people, learning to manage and delegate well.

Ring The Changes

It has to be said that there is another factor influencing your career and vocation. This is the planet of change, Uranus, which took up residence in Taurus in March and was conjunct your ruler, the Sun, last month on April 22nd.

This month, Uranus is in action on the 8th & 18th, when it teams up first with Mercury, then Venus. Uranus can be innovative and new, as it’s the planet associated with all things modern and technological.

When it falls in your career sector, you might be setting off on a new path or want to embrace more space and freedom in your career. It can be a good time to go freelance or work differently in some way. Sometimes, you find that you can’t do things the way you always have done in the past. Life steps in to move you on or shows you where change is required.

Full Moon Celebrations

This planetary influence culminates at the Full Moon on the 18th. This is an important Full Moon for you because it cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac and the foundations of your horoscope. 

This Full Moon may bring an award or a completion of a deadline or project. There could be a surprise involved as the Full Moon takes place the same day as the Venus/Uranus conjunction in Taurus. 

Perhaps, you’re celebrating someone else’s good news or you discover someone’s star-struck over you. Both love and money are potentially in the mix. Uranus is one of your partner planets, so this suggests exciting events for your other half or meeting someone unexpectedly via your working life.

Decision Time

For some of you, this month may require a compromise, especially if you’re busy at work. A trip away or a study course could be postponed or even cancelled early in the month. Planets in fire sign, Aries, run into Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and your work and health sector.

You might be disappointed if you’ve put in for holiday leave or you have to cover for someone else. The key dates are the 1st & 2nd, the 7th & 9th. Bear this in mind and see if you can find a way around any blocks or obstacles that emerge. 

A child could help you out or perhaps a lover. Jupiter’s the key planet in this respect and Jupiter’s active the weekend of the New Moon in Taurus from the 3rd to the 5th.

Note too that the Full Moon in Scorpio on the 18th also highlights home and family affairs. The thrust of this month’s astrology is taking you out into the world. Yet, you still have some responsibilities or duties which require your time and attention. These need to be factored in, especially if your schedule is busy, erratic or you’re starting a new business or project.

Group Connections

Friends are also in the mix this month thanks to Mars in Gemini until the 16th. In fact, some friends could be getting pushy and may demand too much of you. Alternatively, you might find that you have a real drive for networking and using your connections to boost your own prospects.

This is certainly worth doing because on the 21st, your ruler, the Sun joins Gemini along with communication planet, Mercury. On the same day, these two planetary bodies make a super conjunction. 

Choose this date for an important meeting or interview or check out a group, club or society. It might bring good news your way or you hear of an initiative and you know you want to get involved.

Mars is slowing you down a little after the 16th when it enters Cancer and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This indicates a need for retreat or more privacy in your life. Perhaps, too much gossip and information requires a reset. 

It’s certainly a lively month on the whole with a lot of different elements to juggle. Pace yourself and prioritise your own career, status and reputation. This is where you can make the biggest strides in the month ahead.
