Horoscope for May 2017

Sunstar Banner


Tip of the Month: May days, May days…, it almost sounds like trouble. Yet, amidst the blossoming buds and the busy birds and bees, we can rejoice in the eternal renewal and beauty of spring. In the human drama, there is always some measure of drama – simple enough. Ironically, what produces the most drama is assuming that there should not or will not be drama. The drama drum is ever beating like the human heart and good thing too because the alternative is not so satisfying. Heartbeat, drum beat, dramatic tempo… ahh, life in the body…. Mercury in Aries, direct!

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Your energy levels are running high, your focus is sharp, your pace steady. This is a good combination to get things done. Despite a detailed review of past actions, the true focus is set on the future. New creative interests are dawning.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20): Last month’s staggering pace is flowing smoother. Yet you need to decipher what you want and your direction. Deep changes continue, as if beyond your control – cooperate. Your health may be an issue, thus a priority.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): This is a slower time of the year for you, but extra jets firing is to support your efforts. Realizing old dreams is a source of inspiration for new ones yet. Venturing into new territory highlights travel and adventure, in fact, through pages, it’s all good…

Cancer (June 21-July 22):  Things have begun to advance. Building upon new foundations is likely. You may be contending with the insecurity of inexperience. Humble acknowledgment and patient perseverance is the proverbial attitude for success.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): The sure end of proceeding slowly is featured this month. Yet the fine print reveals that you are destined to slowly move through walls. As you do, it may feel like unfamiliar territory and you could feel a little lost, for a little while.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22): Internal changes produce external changes. Call it magic science. Trying to change the reflection in the mirror is madness, not magic. Call it the reflector or the projector, either way, it is within not without. Now, how…?

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22): The irony of balance is that it is dynamic, not static. Moving on and with the flow and adapting as you go, that is the key to balance. This is a push-through period. While polite repartee in relationships is lovely, aim to be authentic.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dealing with dual desires is a classic human dilemma and it is especially a strong challenge for you. High road or low, moving towards the source or away, soul or ego…, these are some of the pulls. Awareness is the key.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Making adjustments and improvements in your game plan is in the spotlight. The process itself can prove fun and exciting, with a good attitude. Make others aware of your intentions to avoid confusion and win support.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A power cycle continues. That you have to exercise your existing personal power to align with and access this fresh potential is important. The key now is to review all you have done to date and bring it forward, summarized, edited and pointed.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A steady flow of new perceptions and perspectives is likely now. Ironically, our own free will can be the blocking force. Is your free will switch set on stay or is it set for forward? It is up to you to decide, but the current is flowing fast and your spirit is adept with the universal 2 by 4. Choices….

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Your public and/or professional sphere is getting a boost now. Fortunately, your capacity for focus is extra strong now. This represents a big window of opportunity to advance your position and increase your influence. Exposure is the key.
