ARIES (March 21st – April 20th)

An unusual moneymaking opportunity will become available on the 4th, courtesy of the New Moon. Opportunities will arise out of the blue. You might have a chance to move into a cutting-edge field. You won’t have much previous experience, so you’ll have to learn as you go. This will be a highly stimulating job that fuels your creativity and enriches your bank account. On the 18th, the Full Moon will bring an intimate relationship to a head. A difference of opinion will spark a loud argument. Although you’ll enjoy venting your frustrations, you should beware of making hurtful remarks. Words can hurt as much as weapons. If you want to keep this union alive, you must treat your partner with respect. Be direct but polite throughout the second half of May. It will be possible to resolve your differences as long as you are guided by logic instead of emotion.

TAURUS (April 21st – May 21st)

The New Moon on the 4th invites you to make a radical transformation. This would be a wonderful time to go for a complete image update and take on a whole new style. If someone offers to give you a makeover at the beginning of the month, accept. You will be thrilled with the results. Doors will open after you change your appearance. It will be easier to attract love, glamorous work assignments and exciting creative opportunities. An agreement will come to an end when neither party can find common ground on the 18th. That’s when the Full Moon will shed light on deep rifts between you and your best friend, romantic partner or work associate. You’ve had unreasonable expectations from this relationship. You want stability from someone who enjoys chaos. A separation, even a temporary one, will give you both a chance to think about what you really want.

GEMINI (May 22nd – June 21st)

On the 4th, the New Moon will prompt you to take a break from your daily routine. It’s possible you will have to take a prolonged absence from work to recuperate from an illness or emotional shock. Standing still is never easy for you. You feel much more comfortable keeping busy. Instead of attending to odd jobs and talking with friends, sit in silence for a while. It will take practice, so be patient. Remaining still will cause a breakthrough that makes you feel much better, both physically and emotionally. An unpleasant routine will come to an end on or around the 18th. That’s when a tense Full Moon will make you choose between duty and happiness. Delegating a job to a relative or colleague will be difficult. You feel in control when you’re in charge of this responsibility. Relinquishing this chore will give you more time for the people and activities you love.

CANCER (June 22nd – July 23rd)

You’ll be asked to join an exciting club on the 4th, thanks to the friendly New Moon on the 4th. You’ll have lots of fun with this organisation. Traveling to local places of interest, studying different artists or learning how to cook will help you discover aspects of yourself you didn’t know existed. Prepare for some empowering revelations at the beginning of the month. The Full Moon on the 18th will mark an unfortunate loss. A prospect that seemed like a sure thing will fall through, causing disappointment. Resist the temptation to lash out at the person who asked you to take this risk. They will be just as upset as you are. Although it may be impossible to stay friends, you shouldn’t blame all your troubles on them. Both of you are the victim of circumstance. Treat this setback as a teaching moment. It’s better to try and fail than cling stubbornly to the status quo.

LEO (July 24th – August 23rd)

The New Moon on the 4th marks an unusual career opportunity. You’ll be asked to take the helm of a glamorous, high-profile company. This position will suit you perfectly. Don’t worry if the duties are unlike any you’ve performed in the past. You’ll quickly get the hang of things. The important thing is you will have a job that feels more like play than work. Family life will become tense on the 18th, due to a contentious Full Moon. Your relatives will resent all the energy you’ve been pouring into work. If you’re going to be successful, you must strike a healthy balance between your personal and professional lives. When you promise to attend family gatherings, recitals and games, keep your word. Your family needs to know they can rely on you. Overlooking their needs will cause anger and resentment leaving permanent scars. Think carefully about your priorities. Stand by the people who unconditionally love you.

VIRGO (August 24th – September 23rd)

On the 4th, the New Moon will allow you to broaden your outlook. Going on an overseas trip, getting an advanced degree or starting a whole new project will bring great happiness. You’ve been blessed with powerful intellectual curiosity. The first half of the month is ideal for acquiring and sharing expert knowledge. If you’re offered a teaching job, take it. Working with students will deepen your pleasure of a favourite subject. The Full Moon on the 18th will make you feel pressed for time. It may be impossible to finish your list of chores. If this is the case, it’s time to delegate jobs to others. Don’t hesitate to ask relatives, neighbours and colleagues for help. Although you’re highly capable and organised, it isn’t realistic to do all the work yourself. With the approach of June, you’ll be challenged to relinquish control. Throw caution to the wind and see what happens.

LIBRA (September 24th – October 23rd)

The New Moon on the 4th brings a windfall that turns your financial situation around. Take this opportunity to pay off debts and put money into savings. Creating a retirement fund will make you feel optimistic about the future. You’ll enjoy using your money to build a life of comfort for you and your family. If you’re in love, your relationship will become much closer in the early days of May. Let down your defences with someone you know you can trust. On the 18th, the Full Moon will present an ethical dilemma. It’s important to obey your conscience, even if it gets other people in trouble. Turning a blind eye to bad behaviour will just compound a serious problem. It’s time to come clean. Some people will be angered by your decision, but it can’t be helped. Stop covering for someone who is doing harm to others.

SCORPIO (October 24th – November 22nd)

On the 4th, the New Moon will mark the beginning of an important relationship. Falling in love, forming a business alliance or signing a contract will be liberating. Two heads are definitely better than one at the beginning of May. While you forge a new path, your partner will create a stable environment that makes it easier to take risks. The Full Moon on the 18th will prompt you to leave a role that no longer serves you. Your departure will make people upset. They’ve been depending on you for guidance. Don’t let anyone lay a guilt trip on you towards the end of the month. You’ve tried your best to serve the group but the arrangement is no longer working. Stop trying to satisfy others at the end of the month. Your first loyalty is to yourself. If this means turning your back on a toxic situation, so be it.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd – December 21st)

A wonderful job offer will arrive on or around the 4th, thanks to an enriching New Moon. This will be a great opportunity to build a nest egg. Although you’re not especially materialistic, you will benefit from having a financial cushion. Being able to travel, write and study without having to worry about money will be liberating. The beginning of May is also a good time to take up an unusual sport. Being active will make you happy, healthy and wise. On the 18th, the Full Moon brings an embarrassing secret to light. Instead of being defensive, admit where you went wrong. Offering a sincere apology is only the first step to regaining someone’s trust. You’ll have to back up your words with actions. Although you kept this information hidden to protect a person you love, this secret did more harm than good. Stop trying to shield a relative from some painful truths.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd – January 20th)

The New Moon on the 4th marks the beginning of an unorthodox relationship or creative project. This experience will cultivate powerful feelings that knock you for a loop. Falling head over heels in love will make your eyes sparkle. Building furniture, making jewellery or inventing recipes will put a spring in your step. Find a channel for all the love you have in your heart. The first half of May will make you feel like you’ve been reborn. On the 18th, the Full Moon will prompt you to break off a troubled alliance. A group you once loved has changed its tune. You no longer want to be part of its extremism. Walking away will be difficult. You’ll miss certain members who will be upset by your defection. Your first loyalty should be to yourself. There’s no point belonging to an organisation that doesn’t represent you in any way.

AQUARIUS (January 21st – February 19th)

Exciting changes will happen in the domestic front on the 4th, thanks to a refreshing New Moon. Relocating to a beautiful part of the world is a distinct possibility. Your lifestyle will be dramatically improved by this shift. Not only will you be doing work you enjoy, but you’ll also have more time for your favourite hobbies. If you don’t move, you will welcome a new member to your household. A child, elderly relative or roommate will cultivate to a comfortable, cosy environment that turns your home into a haven from public life. Your career will reach a turning point on the 18th, due to a tense Full Moon. You might decide you can no longer meet the demands of an oppressive employer. Leaving your job is a distinct possibility. Your family may not support this decision. Turn a deaf ear to their complaints. Starting a business from your home will make you much happier.

PISCES (February 20th – March 20th)

Someone will contact you out of the blue. They’ll have an exciting offer you can’t refuse. The New Moon on the 4th gives you a chance to share your creative abilities with the world. Publishing a book, becoming a featured contributor or recording some songs will make your spirits soar. Don’t let doubt and fear keep you from accepting this wonderful offer. On the 18th, the Full Moon will bring an end to a legal matter, business trip or a period of study and learning. You’ll be less than satisfied with the results. A difference of opinion will stop you from reaching a lofty goal. Good things will come out of this situation, but it will take some time before you can see these benefits. Don’t cry over spilled milk at the end of May. Instead of trying to control your situation, lean into it. Going with the flow is a lot less stressful than swimming against the tide.
