Monthly astrological forecasts and horoscopes!
With Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto retrograde, why not take time to contemplate where you are as we start easing into the middle of the year? How has your 2019 gone so far? What goals have been accomplished? Are any on hold? Review your progress and hear this: even if you’re not where you want to be, there is still time to make headway. With the Sun in Taurus at the beginning of May, the slow ’n steady approach is the way to go.
A New Moon in Taurus on the 4th is the right day for setting new money goals. This is an ideal day for creating a budget or for scheduling an appointment with your financial advisor. A new plan set on this day could bring a bigger payoff later on. The New Moon in Taurus is also most excellent for manifestation. What is your financial dream? Do you want to be debt-free? Wish to attract a better-paying job? Set your economic intentions today.
Mercury eases into Taurus on the 6th, bringing a mindful, cautious approach to communication. Instead of the fiery and impulsive Aries vibe, we’re more thoughtful with our words. Thinking is grounded in the present moment, making it possible for ideas to become a reality. This transit can bring out stubbornness though – if you’re too fond of your own opinion, it may be difficult to hear what the other side is saying. That could lead to standoffs instead of cooperation. Watch out for that tendency if you want to get anywhere in your negotiations.
Call it an earth trifecta when Venus joins the Taurus fun on the 15th. Venus loves being in Taurus because she rules the Bull. Pleasure is IN. Bring an element of sensuality into your love life. Linger over long, luxurious romantic dinners. Draw hot bubble baths. Throw rose petals on the bed and light the candles! GO ALL IN. Sexy times are guaranteed! This is also a “spendy” transit – while a bit of extravagance is nice be mindful of that budget you created on the 4th!
Mars will be moving into Cancer on the 15th too. While this can spur intimacy in the bedroom, it is not the best placement for Mars. This transit often makes people moody – or clingy. Which means: fights can break out over the littlest thing. Cancer throws a wet blanket over Mars’ fire, which can also lead to procrastination. If you have trouble staying motivated, blame Mars!
The Full Moon in Scorpio on the 18th amplifies the sixth sense. This can help to uncover the truth in matters. Mysteries get solved, and issues come to the surface to be released once and for all. This is an especially useful Moon for working with a psychic. Schedule in an appointment and get ready for some clarity! What to watch out for today: paranoia and possessiveness. If you’re going that route, cut it out!
The Sun and Mercury saunter into Gemini on the 21st, lightening up the cosmic mood considerably. The weeks that follow are ideal for playing, whimsical activities, curiosity, and juicy gossip! Words are powerful – someone may spill the beans. The news in the world wide web could be especially revealing – loose lips may sink a few ships!

Annnndddd here’s your personal monthly horoscopes:
Aries: Mercury and Venus in your sign at the beginning of the month coupled with the Sun in your second house of money multiplies your attraction factor times ten. Whether you’re looking for love – or want to make it rain, the Universe is ready to deliver. Use this power wisely, and you may be delighted to see what you can manifest. The New Moon on the 4th is ideal for generating new cash-making schemes or for starting a new job. This could lead to a financial boost that could move you into the black once and for all. Mercury joins the Sun on the 6th, giving you the power to negotiate a raise. You can wheel and deal for a few weeks – do not be afraid to ask for what you want. More good money news: mid-month puts Venus in your 2nd house, which can bring profit through creative means. It’s also favorable for dealing with banks or for seeking support from people of means. One caveat: you may be tempted to blow through your stash because Venus in the second house likes to spend. A little bling isn’t a bad thing but do you really need that diamond encrusted Rolly? The middle of the month also puts Mars in your domestic sector, a transit that often brings arguments with family members. Fights over money are possible. If you’re trying to rule the roost with an iron hoof, you may piss everyone off. Try to play fair – you don’t need to get your way in every situation. The Full Moon on the 18th is great for updating your budget. If you are keen on keeping your money flowing right, mark this day off in your calendar and make an appointment with your financial advisor. They might be able to help you determine where to put your money – and what to avoid. Your powers of persuasion are at an all-time high when both the Sun and Mercury blitz into your 3rd house on the 21st. You’ll have a few weeks where your ideas could attract attention. This is your chance to show your expertise. If you’ve got something important to say, get ready to make an impact! This transit is also favorable for short trips. If you need to hit the road for work or pleasure, have at it.
Taurus: Happy birthday, dear Taurus! The Sun is shining brightly on you, putting all the attention on you. It’s well deserved. You’ve been working hard and taking some mighty significant risks. Now, your payoff comes due. The New Moon on the 4th could put the spotlight firmly on you. Which means you’ll want to upgrade your look if you’ve been sporting the same duds for too long. Use this day for a makeover and then stand tall as you take center stage. You’ll be communicating like a pro when Mercury enters your sign on the 6th. This transit gives you the gift of gab, which means you’ll be owning that main stage like a true BO$$. You can wow people with your words so do not be shy. EXPRESS YOURSELF! It gets even better when Venus glides into your sign on the 15th, boosting your attraction signal higher. That same day, Mars blitzes into your communication sector, giving you the aggressive edge. Bottom line: you can get what you want. The Universe is firmly on your side – and you’ve got the charm and moxie to make magic happen! A Full Moon on the 18th brings a relationship to a critical juncture. Do you move forth – or move on? You’ll need to consider whether this chapter is truly over or if you can make a fresh start. Money will be on your mind beginning on the 21st when the Sun and Mercury enter your 2nd house for a few weeks. You may be bringing in more dough in novel ways – or thinking of making a significant purchase. A bit of hustle on your part will give you the means to invest in your future – or in a little bling. All in all, May rocks!
Gemini: Your energy is on overdrive for the first half of this month, dear Gemini. Mars is in your sign until the 15th – so make hay while the Sun blazes and you could make quick work of any projects on your docket. Be sure to put aside time for rest though. The Sun in your 12th house demands that you balance this firepower with healthy doses of chilling. If you can do that, you’ll be productive and avoid burn out. The New Moon on the 4th is an especially good day for pulling back to reconnect to your vision. Use that day for reflecting on your goals – and fine-tuning your bigger picture. Mercury will be in your 12th house on the 6th, which will help you to create plans for bringing this vision to life. The weeks that Mercury resides here are ideal for laying out the steps – and when the Sun is in your sign, you can blaze those trails full-on! Secret trysts are possible when Venus saunters into your 12th house on the 15th. Romantic liaisons may be hush-hush now. If you’re doing something on the down low, you may be able to keep those clandestine hookups undercover. That same day, Mars will be in your money zone, which might make you hungry for cash. Your ambitions could pay off – so don’t be afraid to hustle your tush off. Of course, you may feel like taking a risk with that extra cheddar. While Mars in the 2nd could be favorable for a bit of financial bravado, I would urge you to practice a wee bit of restraint. A Full Moon on the 18th is most excellent for finishing up work projects, client contracts, or quitting your job. If something needs to come to a close in your career, it may be the blessing you need to move on to something better. Your birthday month begins in earnest when the Sun and your ruler, Mercury head into your sign on the 21st. It’s time to par-tay! The weeks ahead belong to you – make some noise, raise the roof, and get ready for a blast of opportunity. This is YOUR TIME, babe. Know it – and own it.
Cancer: As spring gently unfolds, you’re ready to leave the nest and get more social, dear Cancer. The Sun in your 11th house promises enjoyable invites, many that are too good to pass up. A New Moon on the 4th could be an especially lovely day for a gathering. Why not create a reason to celebrate and get the whole gang together? After all, you don’t have to wait for the invitations – you can play hostess too. Conversations with your friends are bound to be lively when Mercury zips into your 11th house. The social activity is bound to be exciting wherever you go with all this cosmic fun floating around your chart! Romance with a friend is possible when Venus flutters into your social sector on the 15th. A flirtation could turn into something more. For partnered Cancers, this could signal more “date nights” with your boo instead. Either way, the second half of May could be fun and romantic! The 15th also finds Mars in your sign, giving you a bolt of energy that will help you stay up late but still manage to kill it at work the next day. The Full Moon on the 18th could signal a change in your love life. You may be ready to take things to a more significant level – or may call it quits if your relationship has been on dud status for too long. Whatever happens around that day promises to be significant – decisions are not light now. Instead of closing down the clubs, you’re ready to chill when the Sun and Mercury enter your 12th house on the 21st. After such a full social calendar, a few weeks of kicking back and resting will recharge your batteries.
Leo: The Sun is hanging out in your 10th house as May kicks off, giving you heaps of confidence. Your swagger is at an all-time high, and folks are bound to notice.
