Horoscopes for May 2017
by Frederick Woodruff / astroinquiry.com
ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20): Monitor
your moods so you can strike a balance between excitement and anxiety,
especially on the job front where you’ll need a clear head to steer
clear of a heated confrontation. Sometimes it’s best to allow others to
take the lead so you can devote time to repairing and restoring what
needs your energy and attention at home.
Lucky Days: 3 – 23
Lucky Numbers: 4 - 60
TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21): What is that you want most but have felt
too shy (or scattered) to go after? Set your sight on that prize and
claim it after the full moon on the 10th. You’ll want to muster all of
your will power to conquer doubts or fears that have clouded your
wish-making spirit. You’re known for your ability to get what you want
in life. Show the rest of us how that magic works.
Lucky Days: 12– 16
Lucky Numbers: 17 -49
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21): Your innovative spirit is turned up full
blast this month. You’re all about generating new ideas and surprising
your peers with insights and solutions. Mars in your house of charisma
means you’re multi-tasking like a pro. But watch the tendency to jump
the rails on the 10th when the full moon prompts you to reveal much
about something that’s better left unspoken.
Lucky Days: 22– 29
Lucky Numbers: 13 - 57
CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 22): You’re the zodiac’s natural homebody.
It’s not that you don’t like to get out and mingle, it’s just that you
prefer the kind of creative upwelling that being centered in one place
can provide. The full moon on the 10th has you hatching a brand new
artistic project that’s guaranteed to impress your fans. But here’s the
rub: You’ll need to get out there and shine!
Lucky Days: 2– 14
Lucky Numbers: 29 -44
LEO (JUL 23-AUG 23): Here’s a saying from John Muir to act as
inspiration for you: “The clearest way into the Universe is through a
forest wilderness.” What makes nature so powerful is that it acts
instead of equivocating. You can do the same when you put your mind in
the backseat and let your instincts take the reins. You’re headed in a
brand new direction this summer, one filled with wonders and dreams
Lucky Days: 3 – 9
Lucky Numbers: 5 - 45
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23): You’re never short of bright ideas and
you’ll need one to manage all the plates you’re spinning right now. If
you want everything that life has to offer, then you’ll need to prepare
some clear strategies for managing and systemizing your time (which
comes naturally to you, so it shouldn’t be too hard). Still, you’ll
need to ask for assistance. Seek guidance from experts and whiz kids.
Lucky Days: 25– 28
Lucky Numbers: 23 - 47
LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23): Saturn the planet of hard work and
discipline is moving back into your house of the mind and intellect.
This means you’ve a second chance to bring gravitas to an original idea
you might have abandoned last month. Don’t delay—this power to organize
and plan shouldn’t be wasted. Time is on your side now in a very
private and magical way.
Lucky Days: 11– 19
Lucky Numbers: 8 -55
SCORPIO (OCT 24th-NOV 22nd): More than any other star sign you
comprehend the power of closure and endings. The full moon on the 10th
in your house of ‘you’ means you’re ready for a radical makeover, not
just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. Your newfound
philosophy will sustain you for the rest of the year.
Lucky Days: 1 – 11
Lucky Numbers: 25 – 54
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23rd-DEC 21st): Your ruler Jupiter in your
house of friends and colleagues puts the focus on growth through
cooperation. You are a social creature by nature, although sometimes
quantity outdoes quality. This month is all about the quality of your
contacts and putting the time and energy into fostering relationships
that support your dream for a better community and culture. Find your
tribe, organize and activate—we need disruptors like you.
Lucky Days: 3– 23
Lucky Numbers: 9 – 29
CAPRICORN (DEC 22nd-JAN 20th): You’re interested in getting down
to the heart of the matter. Robert Frost sums it up best in this short
poem: “We sit around in a ring and suppose, but the Secret sits in the
middle and knows.” How to move to the center? With curiosity and
inquiry. One of your main gifts is showing the rest of us how order
makes the world operate smoothly. But now it’s time to apply these
gifts to your private life, to discover the secrets of your soul.
Lucky Days: 7- 23
Lucky Numbers: 28 – 47
AQUARIUS (JAN 21st-FEB 19th): Mars turns up the lights in your
house of romance this month. Because you value rationality over
undisciplined emotions, you might find yourself at odds with your
libido. See if you can discover the secret of how lovers can also be
friends. These are the kinds of relationships you value most and feel
comfortable with. However, don’t shortchange yourself in the excitement
department. It’s your time to have fun.
Lucky Days: 14 - 19
Lucky Numbers: 6 – 50
PISCES (FEB 20th-MAR 20th): Wow, you are pushing hard to clarify
your territory on the home front. This is in response to the sense you
have that roles, duties and positions have gotten too murky or
undefined. Don’t let yourself be intimidated or backed into a corner.
Once you reassert your dominion all the unruly activates will come to a
halt and peace will be restored. But you need to step up and speak out.
Lucky Days: 11 - 19
Lucky Numbers: 17 – 48
