May Horoscope – Monthly Horoscope Forecast

May 10 to 14 is the most challenging time of the month when Mercury joins Uranus, both square Mars. This is a risky time for everyone with the potential for arguments, conflict and accidents. Decan 3 of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn should take special care not to react without thinking. Mars square Uranus gives a strong urge to break free from restriction and rebel against authority. A tendency to act rashly without regard for the consequences can lead to great disruption. Avoid impulsive actions and taking dangerous risks.

Lack of attention and concentration can lead to accidents, especially as when driving or working with electricity or technology. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Try not to over react to unexpected news. Listen carefully and think twice before speaking. Your speech may become abrupt and you could blurt out whatever comes to mind. This is not a good time for making important decisions or entering into negotiations. Other people will be unreliable and probably as easily annoyed as you.

May 15 the New Moon at 24° Taurus comes under the influence of the notorious fixed star Algol. This does suggest some people will be directly affected by violence, misfortune or catastrophe by extreme weather. Many more will be indirectly affected, empathizing with the pain and suffering in their extended human family.

Mars square Uranus increases the risk of accidents and violence from Algol. However, other planetary aspect to the new moon deepen the genuine feelings of universal love and compassion. So if your new moon goals are well-intentioned and considerate of others, you can do a lot of good for yourself and others. Jupiter trine Neptune supports this idealistic approach to New Moon May 2018, encouraging faith, hope and charity.

May 25 Jupiter trine Neptune is the major planetary influence this month and lasts from May 10 to June 12. It encourages hope, generosity and community spirit. You may undertake a spiritual quest to seek the truth. There may be destined encounters with priests, guru’s or psychics. Others may come to your for spiritual guidance or you can go it alone. Enlightenment can come through dreams, visions or meditation.

You will find it harder to ignore the poor, sick and needy at this time. As your personal value system or morals reach a higher standard, you will find that selflessly helping others brings great satisfaction. You charitable nature may extend to environmental causes or animal welfare.

Social justice becomes important with more interest in human rights and the plight of refugees and other innocent victims or war and greed. Your enthusiasm may see others congregate around you for a common cause.

Some people feel a strong creative urge and find an outlet for their enthusiasm through music, art, dance or drama. You can follow your dreams for success without needing to sacrifice your ego or material possessions. Wealth, fame and glamour may come but above you should feel happy and content. Romance is also possible as others find you mysteriously attractive.

May 29 the Full Moon at 08° Sagittarius will urge you to go on the offensive and take what you want, regardless of the consequences. So it is important to listen to listen to the wise words of elders, respect your traditions and learn from history. The polarities in this full moon mean you can expect strong opposition if you enter a contest. Winners have a lot to gain from this full moon but losers will pay a high price. So if you start a fight you should be confident, self-reliant and realistic about your chances of success.
