Georgia Nicols horoscopes

Astrologer Georgia Nicols provides her insight into what the stars have to say for May 2014

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s time to monitor your assets. Do you know what you own? Do you have stuff you haven’t used in years? What about your “ongoing, projects”? Figure out what you own, what you want to keep and what you want to get rid of. This is the best time of year to examine how you use your resources. The trick is what you own should make your life easier and not the other way around. Think of the peace of mind and increased energy you will have once you organize your finances and your stuff.



Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Happy birthday! This month boosts your energy and gives you a chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. It also attracts important people to you as well as favourable situations. This is the one time of year when you should put yourself first. Because you like your creature comforts and you like quality, treat yourself to some of your favourite goodies – the best bread, coffee, wine, or your favourite restaurant. Creative friends are in your life now, which means you can enjoy scintillating conversations over a great table.



Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Since your personal year is coming to an end, this is the perfect time to reflect on the past year and think about how you want your new year to be different. Studies claim if you set goals, with deadlines, your odds of achieving those goals are greater than if you just muddle forward, reacting to life. It’s like going to the supermarket with a list instead of just wandering through the aisles buying maraschino cherries and tonic water. Basically, this month is a reality check. It’s time to see how well you are doing at the art of living.



Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a popular month! Not only will you socialize extensively, you will also receive help from others. That’s why it’s wise to form working units and accept the assistance of others, or in turn, offer assistance. The next six weeks are an excellent time to think about future goals. What do you want to achieve in the next five years? If you imagine yourself five years in the future, what does the perfect picture look like? Always start with perfect and then scale back as reality dictates. It’s something to shoot for.



Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Lucky Leo! This month, the Sun slowly crosses the top of your chart, acting like a spotlight on you and this light is flattering! Bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs will notice you more and see you as competent and capable. This is why you will be asked to take on increased responsibilities. Say yes because you won’t have to be an action hero to satisfy their expectations. Hey –you look great, remember? This is also a good time to examine your life direction. Are you headed where you want to go?



Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Travel opportunities and chances to get further education will fall in your lap this month, which is great because you’re keen to explore new, unfamiliar situations. Even a casual encounter might be fascinating or prove to be a positive learning experience. Therefore, do anything different! If you can’t travel, then explore your own city. Do anything that stimulates your intellect and gives you a new take on things. Some of you will be involved with the law more than usual. (“Step away from the fridge.”)



Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You don’t like to talk about money. You like to spend it on clothes and furnishings, stemware and linens. And restaurants. Nevertheless, in the next few weeks, you will be focused on debt, taxes and shared property. You want to get out of debt to be more in control of your life. You will also be more aware of how your values differ from someone else’s values and how you can either compromise or reach a consensus. The upside is that your sex life is hot!  Actually, your energy is passionate in everything you do.



Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This month the Sun is opposite your sign, which means you will need more sleep. Factoid. However, this opposition Sun will also draw your focus to partnerships and close friendships. Examine these relationships. Essentially, for a partnership to be successful, you have to be as good for your partner as he or she is for you. According to a Chinese proverb, “Married couples who love each other tell each other a thousand things without talking.” (Pssst. This hand signal means “Take out the garbage.”)





(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)


You want to turn over a new leaf and reorganize your world. Get on the stick and give yourself the right materials to do a great job. This marvelous spring energy will energize you to not only clean and sort where you live, but also to apply this same effort to where you work. In fact, by extrapolation, you will be gung ho to improve your health. Yes, you want it all! Physical, smooth running efficiency! Not only will you refine your techniques for staying on top of your scene, you will enjoy being of service to others.



Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It’s fun city! The placement of the Sun this month makes you want to seek out pleasure. This is the perfect time for a vacation. Enjoy playful times with children plus sports events. Expect romance to be revved. Existing relationships will be recharged with fun energy, while new romance might enter your world. Express your creativity and explore the arts or any creative expression that appeals. (Yup. Show me an optimist, and I’ll show you a happy-condriac.)



Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Now your attention turns to home, family and your domestic world. Some will be involved with a parent; but all of you will focus more on your personal life. You might entertain at home and be involved with family, or you might want to cocoon at home with junk food, good TV, interesting books and games. You want to be among familiar surroundings. Expect to be contemplative about the past. You might do something that takes you on a trip down memory lane.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)


The pace of your days accelerates in the next six weeks with errands, short trips and schmoozing. You might be involved with a sibling or relative plus you will read and write more. Basically, you want to get outta town and do something stimulating! Note: This is a good time to buy wardrobe goodies because you like what you see in the mirror, plus you’re eager to socialize. You are aware of your daily world because you are interested in everything going on around you.
