Zodiac Check-in: Your Monthly Astro Update

Discover what the stars have in store for your sign this May, a month defined by the New Moon and Jupiter, the planet of abundance.

Aries (21 Mar – 19 Apr):

Your values and what you feel is important will be affected by some new information which changes how you see things this month. Money is favourably influenced by the New Moon on the 8th, especially your savings. Your local community and environment may become more important over the next few months – don’t cause conflict with your neighbours.

Taurus (20 Apr – 20 May):

The New Moon in Taurus on the 8th will bring a new beginning for you – especially where your emotions are concerned. A good time for taking up a new project or perhaps even a life path for some. Jupiter, the good luck and abundance planet, moves into your money and finances zone on the 26th creating fantastic conditions for receiving increased financial growth and benefits.

Gemini (21 May – 20 Jun):

This is a big month for Geminis with the Sun-loving Venus and abundance and good luck planet Jupiter all entering your sign. This is the first time Jupiter has been in Gemini for twelve years and is fantastic for you to grow, learn and explore the world – even if it is just online. The Full Moon in your relationship zone on the 23rd brings heightened emotions and passion.

Cancer (21 Jun – 22 Jul):

Jupiter goes into your subconscious and hidden zone this month – so the best advice is to keep things to yourself or just those closest to you as there are likely to be some big changes happening which need time to develop before you are ready to act. The New Moon brings an opportunity to reconnect and repair an old friendship which has become neglected and unloved.

Leo (23 Jul – 22 Aug):

A fantastic New Moon on the 8th gives a push for Leo’s to start changing their career paths or perhaps even just getting a better job. Think big as there are great energies to help you rise up and succeed. Jupiter, the good luck planet, moves into your zone of hopes and wishes this month, so you may be lucky and have one of your long-held dreams come true before your eyes.

Virgo (23 Aug – 22 Sep):

There is a lot of planetary energy in your zone of public reputation and career this month. This will be helped by the growth planet Jupiter moving into your career zone on the 26th for the first time in twelve years – making this a fantastic time for putting your efforts into career growth and progress as you are likely to be very successful. Romance is highlighted for some.

Libra (23 Sep – 22 Oct):

Jupiter moving signs on the 26th creates the perfect circumstances for travel and exploration for some Librans, and higher education for a career boost for others. The New Moon on the 8th may bring a new start in your investments and super – a good time for paying in extra or starting a new scheme which gives better benefits. Travel is indicated – especially work related.

Scorpio (23 Oct – 21 Nov):

This is a great month for your financial affairs, especially if you are in a committed relationship and share your money. Loans and windfalls are all likely to come to you – possibly through your loved one as abundant Jupiter moves into your shared finance zone this month. The Full Moon in your money and values zone brings good luck and prosperity.

Sagittarius (22 Nov – 21 Dec):

The Full Moon in your sign on the 23rd will bring an issue or emotion to a head – meaning you will need to deal with it head on. Jupiter entering your relationship zone for the first time in twelve years on the 26th will bring a boost of good luck, growth and abundance to your love life and closest connections. Loving Venus brings a boost of love energy from 24th onwards.

Capricorn (22 Dec – 19 Jan):

The Full Moon in your intuition and psychic zone is likely to bring some interesting dreams and perhaps even some insights into an old problem. Jupiter begins its path through your zone of health and habits on the 26th, giving you excellent health luck but also encouraging you to be a bit self-indulgent – especially where good food and good living are concerned.

Aquarius (20 Jan – 18 Feb):

The New Moon on the 8th brings an excellent opportunity to bring an issue or a relationship with someone to an end, clearing space and allowing new positive energy to take its place. Jupiter brings great luck for those hoping for pregnancy and children – it also has some really good energies for luck and windfalls but be careful to only gamble what you can afford to lose.

Pisces (19 Feb – 20 Mar):

Good luck and abundance planet Jupiter is entering your zone of home and family for the first time in twelve years on the 26th, bringing good fortune for those hoping to buy a house or relocate this year. Family matters are highlighted, and you may experience some beneficial luck through a family member. Your career is highlighted throughout the month.

Possibly not,” she said. We beg to differ!
