Will get lucky this week
Taurus
Taurus
May 2 - May 8

There is a lot of activity in Taurus this week, so your reputation, profile or appearance is in the spotlight. This helps you make a new beginning but also figure out what needs to change about ‘Me’ and all that you represent to the world. Venus, your ruling planet, is in your sign too, so you are entitled to be more of a narcissist than usual. A relaunch, rebirth or renaissance is the usual outcome of a New Moon. It also highlights what you are well known for – your values.

    The money is at the heart of a complex relationship near Wednesday. You will have to weigh everything up very carefully because the value of things – or their actual price – translates into a very different kind of cost, which is emotional, sexual or psychological. The issue of commitment is going to hang around for the rest of the month. Thursday-Saturday brings a new beginning in relation to all that you own, owe or earn.

  • Aquarius
    Aquarius
    May 2 - May 8

    A high percentage of Aquarians will be renovating, reshuffling the household, making big family decisions or even moving. You are at that particular time of year when the old way of running your house of apartment may no longer seem right, or particular relatives or flatmates may want a different way of doing things. This is all well and good, but you must expect a couple of obstacles on the path this week. The likelihood of delays, changes or reversals is very high on Mercury Retrograde.

    The Twelfth House of your horoscope describes the life submerged. It points to aspects of your world and your personality which are unfathomable, mysterious and run very deep indeed. If you are open to the idea, perhaps the issue this week is your spirit or soul – your astral body – which has a second life when you are dreaming or under anaesthetic. Matters both psychic and psychological tend to turn up on this cycle. A new beginning is indicated, as the New Moon takes hold.

    This week clashes occur in your house of friendship. Quite clearly, not everything with these people is straightforward and you may have an inner conflict to deal with, or a situation involving your friend where polar opposites are hard to reconcile. The overarching message here is that individual needs and wants can’t get in the way of the collective, or indeed the fine art of friendship. Out of all this will come a new beginning, as your ruler the Moon becomes New all over again.

    You are having quite a time of it this year with so many retrogrades (backwards and forwards scenarios) affecting your money, business, house, possessions, apartment or charity. Here comes another one. You do have a new beginning indicated this week. What May will achieve for you is thinking time. You might also call it time to evaluate. You will be in a position to mull over who and what is priceless to you, as well as anything you – frankly – will bargain over.

  • Virgo
    Virgo
    May 2 - May 8

    Your horoscope describes the big picture. It points to exploration which is typically geographical – across the map – or intellectual – across some vast subjects. Sometimes the exploration is spiritual. You will start a new journey this week. It is very common for people from totally different cultural or foreign backgrounds to play a part on this cycle, too. Just remember that your ruler Mercury is out of sorts, so this is all going to take some time to come together.

    Once a year, the Sun moves into your opposite sign of Taurus, where it draws attention to your opponents or opposition. If your partner is more crucial to you, then the spotlight falls on this person – and sometimes on former or potential partners too. All this curiosity or reaction allows you to see your life as other people view it, from the outside. This in turn helps you make big decisions about the partnership – or the need for either closure or a fresh start.

  • Leo
    Leo
    May 2 - May 8

    One way or another you are going to find your way to a fresh start in your career this week. This also applies to your unpaid work, university degree or full-time parenting job. Your ruler the Sun is implicated in the New Moon in Taurus, on Friday. This suggests the birth of something special in your professional world and although this might take some time to become fully known. Allow for stop-start progress with your new project, role, position, task or plan.

  • Sagittarius

    Your attention now turns to the Sixth House of your horoscope, which is where you commit yourself to serving other people and doing your duty. We associate the Sixth House with Virgo. Her physical condition or state also dictated her lifestyle, her role, her position and her mission in life. It is about your physical state and the effect this has on so many other aspects of your world. With a New Moon imminent, a new beginning is too.

  • Capricorn
    Capricorn

    This week will bring a fresh start in connection with children or a serious lover. The children may be yours or belong to other people. The lover is the kind of person who necessarily comes with younger relatives (their own children) should things ever become serious between you. This is a classic cycle for pregnancy. It is also a textbook cycle for the start of a new relationship. In all cases, the New Moon will usher in a new beginning.

  • Pisces
    Pisces
    May 2 - May 8

    Your week is about the message and the medium. It puts your way with words, ideas and images in the spotlight. A new chapter is indicated. Just remember that Mercury himself is retrograde in May and consequently, there is an increased likelihood of technical errors and communication glitches. You can play this to your advantage by treating this particular idea or journey as a dress rehearsal, or first draft. If you really must go full throttle, at least try to be flexible.
