They’re here…and they’re late…again…
Have a great month…
Life: Action planet Mars is in your sign until May 12. If you haven’t been using this as a personal energy reboot- you have a couple of weeks to get moving.
Love: Venus moves into your communication zone from May 8. Is there something you need to say?
Money: Mars will be energising your money zone from May 12- June 25. Use the first few weeks of this to review your spending patterns and budgets.
Career: Opportunities could be starting to open up right now. Don’t think about them for too long, but take care to read the fine-print.
Life: Your ruler, Mercury, is retrograde for 3 weeks from May 19. Back up everything, watch your health, and keep your schedule flexible.

Love: Don’t be surprised if an old acquaintance reappears this month. Enjoy the catch up, but don’t be disappointed if the reappearance is a brief one.
Money: If you’re tempted by any major purchases, try to delay until after June 10. If you have to proceed, read the fine-print and return policy at least twice…

Life: If there’s been some habits that you know you need to do something about- and I think you know what I’m saying- set your intentions around the New Moon on May 18.
Love: Don’t be surprised if an old love makes a reappearance in your dreams or in your life. Ghosts of relationships past- so to speak. Before jumping back in, check the relationship fine-print.
Money: There could be more coming in that going out this month- unless it’s going out so lovely things can come through the door. Either way, it’s ok- just don’t blow the budget.
Career: Keep an eye on your business communications and think twice, or even three times, before blurting something out that possible would have been better not being said. Just saying…

Love: Venus is moving through your relationship zone this month. You’re welcome.
Money: If possible delay any technology purchases until after June 10. If not, read the plans carefully.

Life: If you’ve been putting off a little home decorating, a new cushion or three…or a new flatmate… May is a good month to do something about it.

Money: It comes in, it goes out. Not much more I can say this month!
Career: Responsibilities might feel like they weigh a little less this month- or things happen a little easier. Either way, use it to get more done.

Life: Take care not to get too carried away with Plan A without thinking about what Plan B or C could look like.
