HOROSCOPES – Georgia Nichols

Your stars for May 2016

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This month has a new perspective, namely, money, cash flow, earnings and a focus on your possessions. The bottom line is you want what you own to make your life work more smoothly. You want your wealth to work for you. Take inventory of what you own. Repair what you value. Consider what items you might like to own to enrich your life. What can you do to boost your income? (How can you reduce squandering money?)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This month the Sun is in your sign, which is the only time all year this happens. The Sun boosts your energy and recharges your batteries for the rest of the year. It also attracts favourable situations and important people to you. It’s totally appropriate to put yourself first now and think about how you look, how you impact your world, what you want to do, what you want to be and where you want to go because it’s all about you for the next month. Yay!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a low-key month. Your personal year is ending; your birthday is nigh. Among other things, this means that this is the month to plan what you want your new year to be all about. Write down some goals with deadlines. (They spur action!) Friendships are warm and affectionate; however, Mars opposite your sign can make you impatient with others. This is a great time to make home improvements.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your focus now is on groups, clubs and organizations. Friendships are more important. Examine the role they play in your life. Ideally, this will pose the question – what kind of friend am I? Would you like to have you as a friend? The people we hang out with are a reflection of who we are. Furthermore, the people we hang out with influence our decisions, which mean they ultimately, influence our future. ‘The only way to have a friend is to be one.’

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The Sun is at high noon in your chart. This is the only time all year this happens. This means you are high viz. in the eyes of important people: bosses, VIPs, parents and the police. Not only that, this ‘spotlight’ is flattering, which means others admire you more than usual even if you don’t act differently. Now is the time to make your pitch to the head honcho. This is also the perfect time to examine your life. You can still have a Five-Year Plan even if you don’t know what you’re having for dinner tonight.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You gotta get outta Dodge. You’re eager for adventure and a chance to expand your world. If you can’t travel, you might be surprised at how thrilling it can be to be a tourist in your own city. Another way you can expand your world is by learning something new. Sign up for a course. Attend a talk or a lecture. Enrich your life by meeting people from other backgrounds and different countries. Romance will also be sweet and affectionate. Sigh.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Money and earnings are on your mind. You’re trying to sort out things in your life; and much of it depends on how much money you’re making now and how much you hope to make in the future. Some of that might be predicated on how much you hope to save in the future. But it all comes down to cash flow, earnings and how you handle assets. This triggers talk of inheritances and shared property. (Two can live as cheaply as one, but only half as long.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This month you will be focused on partners and close friends because this is also the only time of the year when the Sun is directly opposite your sign; and this polarization causes you to focus more on partnerships and close friendships. However, it also means that you will need more sleep, because symbolically, the Sun is now as far away from you as it can get all year. Respect your need for more rest. Go to bed. Don’t be grumpy.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Mercury and the Sun motivate you to be better organized. You want results for your efforts. That’s because in the bigger picture, you feel the need to manage your life better. While you focus on physical efficiency, by extrapolation, you will focus more on your health. Time to buff that bod! Your chance to get outdoors excites you because Sagittarians love the outdoors. Fiery Mars is in your sign and Mars rules your muscles and blood – you’re pumped!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is perhaps the most playful month of the year for you. You are a hard-working sign, but now you will take time for love, romance, vacations, parties, the arts, movies, theatre, musical performances, sports events and playful times with children. Plan to have fun! In addition, seek out ways that you can express your creative talents because this will please you so much. With romance, remember love is blind; and patience is the antidote to anger.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your attention turns to home, family and your personal life. In fact, many of you will tackle home repairs, as well as have family meetings and gatherings. However, Mars continues to rev your energy with groups and friends and attracts a competitive situation with someone. Fortunately, fair Venus makes you extra diplomatic and charming, which is why everyone loves you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’ll notice that your daily tempo will accelerate this month because you have a jam-packed schedule! Short trips, increased errands, as well as conversations with everyone will keep you off your heels. In addition, many of you will be reading, writing and studying more than usual. Yes, you’re busy! You are also ambitious to achieve a lot. Venus will boost your earnings now but tempt you to buy beautiful things. Hmm, yes – new summer sandals.
