Sign by Sign Astrology Forecast For May 2006

General Comments ~
Many of us find our situations suddenly and unexpectedly changed for the better.  Due to circumstances beyond our control, our lives have suddenly improved.  But it has been a bit of a scramble and we are still adjusting.  

It is clear that more change is on the way. We know instinctively that these new changes will also take us in a good direction.  In many cases, it is a direction we wanted to take, but we might have given up hope of ever being able to go that way.  

As obstacles rapidly fall away, as necessity forces us to finally do what we always wanted to, as inspiration and opportunity flows, we will all slowly come to accept this new, unexpected, but desirable state of affairs.

This change will, however, require more adjustments.  Some of them will be deep and substantial.  May, especially in the beginning of the month, provides ideal conditions to cope with the new demands being made upon us.  It will provide a shock absorber, a cushion, a safety net--pick your metaphor--that allows us to make the needed changes without serious risk or major expense.

There will be something of a pause in the second half of May.  We hold our breaths as we prepare to meet yet another wave of change.


Sign by Sign Astrology Forecast For May 2006

First, be mindful that you are under protective and supportive influences.  The outcome of this month’s events will most likely leave you with everything you now have, just rearranged in a way that is much more convenient and productive.  All will benefit.  Next, come to terms with the fact that some kind of shakeup is inevitable on the home front.  Tempers could flare a bit, but it is time to make some changes, no matter what.  It is all necessary to clear up problems with long term financial arrangements.  

TAURUS ~ Once again, you might end up with lots of influence in a very complicated situation but with no direct power over it.  But you can still achieve a great deal, especially at the beginning of the month.  Problems might abound, but so will solutions.  The end result will be a new situation, and one that gives you plenty of options and flexibility you can use to deal with all those challenges coming down the road.  Initially, communication and coordination could be a big hang up, but they will improve.

GEMINI ~ If it seems like, May is all about your special communicative skills, that’s because it is.  You have an important roll to play, even if others don’t consciously recognize it.  Work is the key area.  Money is still the sticking point and plans for the future the issue around which everything revolves.  Possibilities abound.  You must help others understand their visions for the future and bring them into line with economic realities.  Unfortunately, this is one of those times when everything boils down to money.  Luck is with you.

CANCER ~ You will be keenly aware of difficulties and conflicts this month, but protective influences allow you to act with confidence.  You can make some important adjustments.  These changes will bring significant relief and hasten progress toward your ideal lifestyle.  Deep personal and spiritual issues and financial concerns are key.  Spiritual, personal and financial matters often seem to be at odds, but this month, efforts to resolve such issues will work successfully together.  It might not seem like it, but your actions now are very much in tune with events around you.

LEO ~ A surprisingly complicated situation is indicated.  It involves just about all the important people in your life.  The sum total of your personal responsibilities is too great.  Even old friendships could put a strain on key family and professional relationships.  Basically, you will have to come to a new understanding within yourself.  Decide what is most important to you and adjust your personal commitments.  The planets will buy you some time so you can figure out a new arrangement and convince everyone involved to accept it willingly and happily.

VIRGO ~ Think of the first weeks of May as a grace period.  Events are forcing a change.  However, the planets are providing a very efficient shock absorber to prevent ‘mishaps’ while you make needed adjustments to just about your whole lifestyle.  Everything and everybody that is important will get reshuffled and assigned new roles.  So big complicated changes should go well, despite stubborn obstacles and limited budgets.  Later in May, you will find yourself at center stage, communicating, coordinating and managing, etc., as the going gets a little bit rougher.

LIBRA ~ Librans shouldn’t have much trouble with a month designed for successful balancing and adjusting.  If you wanted to, you could reshape your financial situation, from job to savings, to bring you closer to a long-term goal.  But be prepared to learn that your present course is the safest and wisest way to go.  Immediate gains can be achieved, but there are many hidden costs and risks.  Whatever you decide, May provides a fine opportunity to study your circumstances, explore new possibilities and decide upon a course of action.  

SCORPIO ~ You knew that adjustments were needed to make challenging home and partnership situations workable.  Changes have been needed for awhile, but circumstances have not cooperated.  So May should come as a godsend.  The whole situation will open up, presenting convenient options and a range of new resources.  Maybe it won’t be the big, immediate, sweeping change you hoped for, but you will find much needed freedom of movement.  You need not fear that anything important will be lost or even put at risk.  You are under strong protective influences.

SAGITTARIUS ~ The emphasis in May is on other people in every area of your life.  You need to make some very basic changes in the way you relate to all the people in your world.  Things can’t really go on the way they have been.  You must change some deeply held beliefs and a few other things besides.  It won’t be easy.  The planets are now providing an opportunity to make some of the needed adjustments without risk and with benefits for all.  However, more will remain to be done.

CAPRICORN ~ Capricorn will play conscience to someone else’s ambitions, or the voice of reason vis-à-vis someone else’s overly ambitious plans.  You should take the part of the little guy, who must live with the decisions of the powerful and influential.  In your own life, you might finally have to do something about continuing uncertainties in financial areas.  Fortunately, the planets are perfectly aligned to help you make needed adjustments without undue risk.  Although this might only prove to be a holding action.  Partners and key associates are feeling pretty feisty.

AQUARIUS ~ The planets are telling Aquarius that their illusions, even their most cherished illusions, can cost them money. Simplify your lifestyle. Be realistic about your needs.  Let go of some illusions and budget-busting expenses will follow. Resist the temptation to retreat into your own little world.  The planets will soften any financial blow and provide good substitutes for whatever you must give up.  There is not as much flexibility as you think, though.  The safest course is to make needed adjustments and, whenever possible, stay with the tried and true

PISCES ~ Something must change to relieve all the inner stresses and strains you are feeling. A long-term quest for greater philosophical or spiritual understanding is indicated. Or maybe it’s just a matter of enhancing your skills or professional credentials.  It will take some time to work through the personal issues and do what’s needed.  That means you must make outward changes that will provide the time and the freedom of movement you need to pursue these goals.  Fortunately, the planets are perfectly aligned to help you make any necessary adjustments.

Found you via the dermod's astrology blog page. These are great. Never mind I like how you say that - "slouching toward retirement." :)
