Welcome to May. The dominant feature this month may well seem to be Mercury's retrograde, but this planet forges a stunning alliance to the go-getting Jupiter, which itself begins the month in reverse before powering forwards from the 10th. The Sun also combines brilliantly with Jupiter so there are plenty of possibilities this month. For your FREE Monthly Horoscopes May 2016 please see below...
Monthly Horoscopes May 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The New Moon of the 6th links brilliantly to the deep energies of Pluto. This could trigger a seminal moment around your career and business aspirations. If you have been working hard behind the scenes, this time could be a breakthrough month. However, the key is to be utterly realistic in terms of your expectations and target tangible rather than dreamy goals.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
This month sees a rare planetary alliance forged which can be truly beneficial to you Taurus, and especially around anything creative or artistic. With Jupiter, the planet of expansion, also going forwards from the 9th, and your ruler Venus entering your money zone on the 24th, your prospects can be very strong. A special person can enter your social life too.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Look beyond surface impressions, and you'll discover so much more - especially in the first two thirds of the month. It is true there is a tense influence between the 21st and the 24th, which could be important around a key relationship, but you are going to start to sparkle brightly once your ruler goes forwards on the 22nd, and the Sun and Venus enter Gemini.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
One alliance can become incredibly important to you this month, but it doesn't have to be just in a social context, Cancer and it could be romantically, or even professionally. However, even if someone does seem to be a person you can really admire and look up to, don't put them on a pedestal. In the last ten days of the month, you may find yourself more reflective.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Your professional aspirations are given an incredible boost all through this month Leo and particularly where you're prepared to take on more responsibility, and show just how self-confident and assured you can really be. However, do be very realistic about financial expenditure. Give yourself permission to enjoy and embrace more playful possibilities in the last week.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Jupiter in your sign has been in retrograde since just after the start of the year but now powers forwards and goes on to forge a stunning link with your ruler Mercury and the deep energies of Pluto. This rare and beneficial Grand Trine can catapult you into a totally new sphere and with stunning success. Someone influential can help you along the way too Virgo.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Anything to do with property, business, insurances and savings all look favourable on the back of this month's glorious New Moon. With Mercury retrograde, do be vigilant however and it will be important not to be too obliging as far as other people are concerned. You can be the ultimate people-pleaser but don't be taken too much for granted, Libra.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Your modern ruler Pluto is incredibly influential this month, especially in week two, when she combines with glorious Venus in your sector of relating. This can lead to a telling conversation that could prove to be hugely significant, perhaps even romantically so. But then all sorts of relationships can start to flow so much better throughout the month of May.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Your ruler Jupiter leaps into forward motion on the 9th and worldly aspirations can take a turn for the better. The key to progress this month really comes from a determination to make sure all the details of situations are really tied down firmly. Be sure not to take short-cuts or to downplay the importance of making sure nitty-gritty matters are attended to, Archer.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You could find yourself having some quite amazing conversations at any time this month, but especially in the first two thirds. Don't underestimate the impact that your words and your guidance can have on situations, for someone could see you as being especially important to them. However, past issues may continue to call out for your attention.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Home and hearth! These are areas that are really going to be vibrating with energy this month Aquarius, and improving the comfort of your abode or improving the quality of your closest emotional and family relationships can take on a much greater resonance. There will also be an opportunity to be much more sociable and outgoing from the 24th of May onwards.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Mercury is in retrograde this month, right through to the 21st, and in an area which governs your everyday communications. With your two ruling planets of Jupiter and Neptune also in conflict it's vital that you're factual in your approach. Despite this, some amazing connections can be made and new, more positive dynamics be forged in all sorts of associations.
