Social distancing and lockdown laws affect different personality types in different ways. It is not possible to write about the individual Zodiac Signs during these times without taking into account how each respond to society’s laws. This month’s Your Stars acknowledges the effect as lockdown is likely to continue in some form or another during May. Stay safe.
Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
The Rams of the Zodiac need to find outlets for pent-up energy during May. Planets aligned in your money sector indicate that a new budget or a new outlook on your personal coffers is needed. It is time to change how you earn your money, or at least look at different ways of spending. Perhaps bartering skills could be a way forward? Your self-esteem is likely to be boosted by physical exercise, or a project that fully occupies your mind. May is the month during which you discover who your true friends are. You are likely to speak your mind when it comes to fair-weather friends.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
It’s time to look at your health and happiness. This is your month to focus on self-care. Comfort eating, lack of physical exercise and indulgences do not augur well in the long-term. As difficult as it may be you need to adopt a routine that includes activities that make you happy, with an emphasis on the word “active”. The planet of change, Uranus, has been in your Zodiac Sign for many months urging you to “pivot”. What does this mean? It means to change the way that you think about yourself, to do things differently than you have in the past.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
Social distancing is the polar opposite of active and stimulation-seeking Gemini energy. You love to connect, network, chat, create, transport and flit from one activity to another. Unless you are an essential worker this month is likely to be quite difficult. It is your time to stop and look within, which does not come naturally. If possible, take a deep breath and use the month of May to start activities that help calm your mind. You could meditate, start a calming yoga practice or learn a new language or musical instrument. If all else fails there is social media.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
You love nothing better than to nurture others, and this means touch – hand-holding, hugging and cuddling. Social distancing is difficult for you unless you are an essential worker or snuggled up at home with your loved ones. So how do you advance through these times? This month offers you the chance to look at your own hopes, dreams and wishes. Interest groups, support groups and friends are likely to spark ideas. You can start online and progress to more direct socialising when it is safe to do so. You need an interest that is shared with others to stop you worrying about loved ones who are out of reach.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
It’s time to focus on your career. If you are not an essential worker then you may wonder how to do this? You need to be inventive. What can you do that advances your professional interests? Is there an online course that would boost your knowledge or skills? Do you need another string to your professional bow? Perhaps you could build an online presence, connecting with others while they have more spare time? You need to take action that puts you in the public eye, or boosts your kudos with employers. This is time for sunny Leos to take a positive outlook, and be a ray of sunshine for all around.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
It is time to broaden your mind and think outside the square. Planets are aligned in your fellow Earth Sign Taurus and herald positive times for teaching, publishing, studying, religion, sports or anything that lifts your spirits. Travel plans have been cancelled but there are other ways to escape. You need to seeks interests online now that help you make the changes that are necessary to adapt to current society laws. If there is a subject that you have always wanted to research, whether academic or perhaps more personal such as family history, then now is good timing. You may also be attracted to knitting, sewing, or craftwork that benefits those in other countries.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
It’s time to examine your resources. This means look at any joint ventures as well as any investments that you have made. Are you making the most of your resources? How have recent events affected your investments? Planets aligned in the 8th House of your Solar Chart also point to the study of cycles. This could be anything from weather cycles to metaphysical matters connected to birth, life and death. If you have always to delve into deep and meaningful topics then May is your month. It is a time for introspection especially after the 13th when your ruling planet Venus goes Retrograde.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
The 7th House of your Solar Chart lights up this month indicating that dating, mating and relating are high on your agenda. The usual courtship rituals have changed under the lockdown laws in place in so many countries. So, if you are single you need to be adaptable while keeping safe. If you are already in a committed relationship then you either thrive or notice all of the problems that have previously been swept aside. The lockdown lowdown is that you can use this time to grow closer, sharing your concerns and deepening your bond, or you grow apart. Avoid unnecessary conflict.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
You may find it difficult to establish a routine during the month of May. Daily life is full of surprises. On the positive side this can be busy and fulfilling. You have plenty of energy and can experiment with new schedules and health work-outs. However, you may also experience some upsets when it comes to electrical equipment, small animals and appliances. The trick is to remain adaptable. Go with the flow. What improvements can you make to your own well-being? How can you adapt your working life to the current social requirements? Your ruling planet Jupiter turns Retrograde mid-month indicating a slow-down in personal income.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
May is a creative month for Capricorns. This means that you can work steadily on a current project that excites your imagination, or you can start a new one. It is time to focus on something that helps you feel young at heart. This could be a new romance, or spending time with young children. However, it is also important to incorporate activities that bring out your very best. Several planets in your fellow Earth Sign Taurus propel you forward. The trick is to decide how to best use the extra energy that you now have.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Gregarious Aquarius may find it difficult to hunker down and social distance. Air Signs love to connect with others, but the planets are aligned in the 4th House of your Solar Chart calling you home. The ‘stay-safe, stay home” hashtags could be your personal ones this month. Social media may help but the trick really is to focus on cleaning and de-cluttering your home, and to take part in family activities if you are living with others. Home-based activities are likely to be the most fulfilling ones now, paving the way for social interaction when the time is safe.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Your mental health is the focus this month. You need to keep your mind occupied with positive interactions and activities. May is the perfect month to learn a new language, pick up a musical instrument or art brush, or just about any short-term uplifting hobby. You need to ensure that your overactive imagination is applied to inspirational activities rather than worrying about the past, present or future. Communication is the key. If services offer online options then take them. If friends reach out with ideas for connecting while staying at home then say “yes”. Isolation does not mean cutting off life-lines.
