Horoscope for May 2012 by Jeanne Douglas

Aries (20 March – 19 April):
Welcome changes to the daily routine add shine and sparkle to your overall impression on others. As your confidence overflows, an admirer seeks you out and you discover that you’re on the same wavelength – and share an opinion on some matter of importance that will shape your future. Closing the door on the past helps.

Taurus (20 April – 20 May):
As a relationship matter reaches a satisfactory conclusion, your happiness grows and you’re in the mood to ‘spread your wings a little’, to have a change of scene. Travel adventures will be fun, especially because they are shared with a loved one, lending a ‘romantic’ air. Careful planning ‘now’ helps you to build on firm foundations later.

Gemini (21 May – 20 June):
New practical developments give you the advantage over others, especially because you welcome them in. Yes, the changes do you good and inspire you to complete an outstanding work project, one that has been taking up too much time and energy! You’re starting to realise that this is your moment to shine. Your popularity soars.

Cancer (21 June – 21 July):
You change your mind over some particularly important future plan, even though this unsettles you. The resulting mood, however, is one of euphoria and this further encourages you to pursue love and companionship! By putting your own needs first, you are uplifted and the dreary routine has to make way for you. So others move on.

Leo (22 July – 22 August):
Money comes and goes so quickly this month, as you earn, then spend it! However, your daily commitments certainly do demand this as well as projects at home, which require completion. So it may seem as if your hands are tied for the first half of the month. But happily, new friends invite you out and an admirer emerges.

Virgo (23 August – 22 September):
You wish that romance were more ‘straight-forward’ or at least easier to understand! A lighter daily routine certainly takes the pressure off and you get more time to yourself. A partner feels the need to travel, you won’t necessarily be happy but let them have the space that they really need. A new job promises rich rewards.

Libra (23 September – 22 October):
Financial sources come under the spotlight and a review is necessary. ‘Facing the truth’ of the matter may be difficult but can lead to an actual increase in funds, so do find the courage! It’ll be worth the effort and you’ll be pleased with the results. And though others are there to advise and ‘hold your hand’, a new attitude holds the key.

Scorpio (23 October – 21 November):
You reach a personal decision and this will now free you up from endless worrying and wondering! This gives you a new lease of life and a loved one is simply wonderful too. Everything is running smoothly and your life seems to have finally gotten itself onto the right tracks. And a fantastic new friend is determined to help.

Sagittarius (22 November – 20 December):
Just as doors close on one or two long-term plans, a new relationship brings fun and laughter into your life, making the world of difference! Work is rather pleasurable too, involving exciting travel and social opportunities. Yes, life has changed dramatically over the last month or so, and for the better. Study is highly likely.

Capricorn (21 December – 19 January):
Changes to your social life, get you off the hook, giving you more time than usual to spend on other adventures. Your determined attitude certainly sees you going off ‘doing your own thing’ and you are more prepared to ‘go it alone’. This is refreshing in itself and will help re-charge your batteries. A new job is fun and enjoyable.

Aquarius (20 January – 17 February):
A work task is completed this month, giving you time to help close friends and relatives with their own responsibilities. They will certainly thank you for it! A new social opportunity involves romance, together you work out just how to fulfil your responsibilities, whilst getting to know each other better. Life is most certainly good.

Pisces (18 February – 19 March):
You realise that it’s time to leave behind one or two outworn attitudes and a few old goals besides. You knew that this time was coming and your positive attitude goes a long way to develop a new pathway for yourself. So you’ll not be complaining. For this, you realise, is a special time; life is relaxed and changes at home are pleasing.
