Horoscopes for May 2023 By Jeanne Douglas

Aries (21 March to 19 April):
Life runs smoothly and Spring is a real bonus! Friends get in touch after a quiet phase; it’s so good to catch up with one another again. Take your time over a work project being as careful thoughts leads to outstanding results and acclaim. A ‘throw away remark bears fruit’ and an admirer makes their subtle presence well-known.
Taurus (20 April to 20 May):
Someone, somewhere is thinking of you! Practical jobs seem to take forever to get done and others seem too overwhelmed with their own workloads to give you a helping hand. You find yourself in wonderful company, laughing and reminiscing and really enjoying yourself – being quite the sociable animal. ‘A stitch in time saves nine’.
Gemini (21 May to 21 June):
Something you’ve been putting off doing finally gets done without too much extra effort! But life is complicated and you’re not sure what to do about one thing or another. So try and give yourself some more time and all will become clear. A friend is thinking of you and would like to help and advise you in any way – a real pal!
Cancer (22 June to 22 July):
A family member asks you for help and this turns out to be rather fun! Your happiness levels increase as Spring unfolds and life takes on a more gentle tone. Some artistic or creative project captures your imagination and provides a flight of fancy from the dull, mundane world. An overheard remark sets you off on the right track.
Leo (23 July to 22 August):
You seem to have been overlooked when it comes to a social invite and it doesn’t take you long to put things right! By being friendly and helping others out, you seem to get your social life back on track. A new romantic opportunity takes you by surprise and there’s real joy in talking with and getting to know each other better.
Virgo (23 August to 22 September):
Someone tells you something really interesting and it stays in your mind for days; this may even inspire and uplift you! Family commitments dominate and you feel that you really need to focus and offer your time here. Someone thanks you prolifically, making you feel quite wonderful – even special. Yes, life is good.
Libra (22 September to 23 October):
Tidying and even redecorating – your living space puts you into a good frame of mind. You also seem to be clarifying and reorganising your thoughts. Certain decisions are looming and you need time to dedicate to weighing up the pro and cons. Decluttering and clearing piles of documents helps you breath a sigh of relief.
Scorpio (23 October to 21 November):
Someone gives you a good idea and you can’t wait to follow it up! Life needs a good deal of sorting out and you will have to prioritise and put ‘first things first’. A long-standing problem finally gets sorted out and this is an incredible blessing and makes a big difference to your life quality. A friend’s problem is confusing.
Sagittarius (22 November to 21 December):
You so love the great outdoors and you’ll have plenty to do with gardening and even conservation projects! Music features highly this month and a social event involving orchestras and instruments will prove to be highly enjoyable. Friends and acquaintances seem busy and confused. Stand back for a while.
Capricorn (22 December to 19 January):
You’re struggling with piles of documents and forms, trying to work your way through them and this is hard work indeed. Try to pace yourself and take reasonable time; that way, things will gradually get done. Someone is trying to get your attention and even be trying to get in touch but you’re so busy. Relax.
Aquarius (20 January to 18 February):
You’re having to be firm when it comes to getting things the way that you really want. This doesn’t mean standing on other people’s toes but just being honest and makes for more contentment in the long-run. You could really do with some time out, to re-charge your batteries. But time is at a premium so just do your best!
Pisces (19 February to 20 March):
Life is certainly interesting if somewhat complicated at times. You’re trying your best and putting your ‘best foot forward’ but others seem determined to confuse you even more! Never mind. Just move forward even though the path gets quieter and quieter as others move on; not everyone is going the same way.
