Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Taurus May 2017 Horoscope


Taurus Quote of the Month: ‘A goal should scare you a little and excite you a lot’ ~ Joe Vitale

Well, Taurus, this month is looking like it will be a great one for you! Stop focusing on your career and shift your attention to your personal matters like your family, relationships and yourself, of course! You’ll be feeling super independent this month, so this is the perfect chance for you to set some personal goals and start working your way towards them. The position of Venus will impact your sense of self, driving you to try out a bold new look around the 2nd and 3rd, so be daring and creative- you’ll love the outcome and you’ll be turning heads for all the right reasons.

There will be plenty of chances for new relationships to develop this month, especially around the 15th and 16th, but are you ready to commit? Remove yourself from any intense situations to decide whether it’s just love or lust. Don’t let your feelings get the better of you- try going for a walk or run to try to clear your head, especially if you’re feeling stressed. With Mars moving through Uranus and Venus in Taurus, your career and finances will be looking great around the 20th May, so dig out your highest heels and organise a gals night out around the 26th for a much needed catch up – you deserve it!

Gemini May 2017 Horoscope

Gemini Quote of the Month:Always remember, your focus determines your reality’ ~ George Lucas

You’ll need to be mega focused this month, Gemini. Your house of career is looking strong this month, so try to focus your energy on building your career and push your personal matters to the back of your mind – they’ll take care of themselves. You may come across as being selfish, but don’t worry what other people are thinking- just focus on yourself and your goals and everything will fall into place.

You’re full of life and confidence this month, attracting all the right attention from all the right people. Keep your eyes peeled in an academic environment around the 4th, 5th and 6th, you’ll see someone you really fancy and it will be reciprocated – go you! Just make sure you’re not playing games around the 11th and 12th or things could quickly fall apart. The 31st is the perfect day for a super-romantic date, so treat yourself to something you’ve had your eye on for a while to make sure you’re feeling extra-fleeky.

Cancer Quote of the Month:A positive attitude really can make dreams come true’ ~ Zina Garrison

Parties, parties, parties will be at the forefront of your mind until the 20th May- embrace it and have alllll of the fun – your finances will be booming so don’t worry about spending too much. The 7th and 8th will be amazing days for you, Cancer, with your work, finances, social life and love life all falling into place, but this isn’t down to luck- this is all down to your positive attitude and ability to deal with difficult situations.

Someone will be chasing you this month, Cancer, but make sure you’re compatible before you rush into anything – if they’re a Capricorn or a Taurus then go for it, it’s sure to work out. Make some plans with someone special around the 11th and 12th as you’ll be feeling full of life, but try to maintain your distance around the 17th and 18th to avoid any unnecessary arguments and the 23rd could see you two taking the next step… How exciting!

Leo Quote of the Month: Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there’ ~ Will Rogers

Focus on your career and social life this month, as the planets are not in your house of family; so you could see some conflicts arise. Try to hold back on your boldness this month, Leo, or you may have to deal with the consequences of your actions, especially when it comes to any new relationships. You might meet someone interesting this month, so get swiping – your next Tinder match could be the one! Combine your love for learning and love to get to know something new about a potential love interest- it’ll make you like them just that little bit more.

Your career and finances will be booming this month, with the 9th and 10th being particularly good days for you. Everything you’ve been working hard for will be working in your favour, so don’t sit back – keep working and you’ll get alllll the rewards. Try a new sport this month to satisfy your need to learn! Why not go to a yoga class or channel your inner cowgirl at horse riding? The 19th, 20th & 21st are the best time to step up your fitness regime, so book in for a new class and you’ll discover a new lease of life!

Are those wedding bells we hear? You’ll feel like you’re married to your career this month, Virgo, but that’s probably a good thing as your relationships will be a little rocky this month… You may be busy, but make sure you’re focused on the little details around the 5th & 6th or you’ll hit a rocky patch later down the line. Learning a new skill around the 22nd and 23rd will massively impact your career. The 12th and 13th are excellent days for you, when your problems will be the last thing on your mind and your love life will be getting interesting, so enjoy it and treat yo’self to something you’ve had your eye on for a while!

You’ll put your social skills to use at the beginning of the month in every aspect of your life. Want to go out on a date? Well go out and get one, especially around the 17th!

You’ll be feeling super happy and content this month, with the majority of your focus being on your family, but be careful – your personal life might be distracting you from your work around the 4th, 5th and 6th! Try to keep your cool in a sticky situation at work and be diplomatic when dealing with any disagreements. The counteractive positions of Mars and Neptune mean that your finances could be a bit up and down this month, so try to channel your energy into learning something new around the 21st to avoid spending your money.

Pisces Quote of the Month: ‘There’s plenty of fish in the sea, but I’m a Mermaid…’

You’ve heard the saying that ‘there’s plenty more fish in the sea’… Well that’s certainly the case for you this month, Pisces! You just need to focus on what kind of fish you like and stop being so fickle. The beginning of the month will have you looking for a potential suitor with plenty of money and possessions, but those flashy belongings won’t impress you for long and you’ll soon swim away, on the lookout for someone with intelligence and good conversation- you’ll need to act boldly to get who you want.

The 1st could be confusing for any potential relationships but, thankfully, everything will be clear around the 2nd & 3rd… Hellooooooo date night!  The 24th, 25th and 26th will be the best days for you this month… good luck trying to wipe that smile off your face!
