Cancer Daily May 2016
Daily forecasts for May 2016 by Rob Tillett.
Click here for Suzanna's Month in Brief.
Sun May 1:
- It's the first of May, dear Crabs, which has been a time of
general celebrations since Noah was a boy. This said, the cosmos is
feeling a touch grumpy, which might signal cross words with friends, or
petty problems with a partner. Don't get the Beltane blues! Be sure you
get out and have a blast, as May Day only comes once a year! More on May Day. More on Beltane.
Lucky colours are spring green and indian yellow.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 24.
Mon May 2:
Raring To Go
- You're raring to go and you'll feel really frustrated if you
can't do something interesting or unusual at some point. You're starting
to get itchy feet, too, so ideally you should make plans for a
forthcoming journey or holiday. Even if you can't go away at the moment
you'll enjoy dreaming about where you'd go if you could.
Lucky colours are violet and champagne.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 46.
Tue May 3:
- A friend has some wise words for you today, so listen carefully.
It's not that they're trying to interfere in your life, or that they
think you're on a collision course with disaster. They simply think they
might be able to help you in some way, especially by lending you their
moral support or giving you some carefully thought out advice.
Lucky colours are navy and tangerine.
Lucky numbers are 25 and 27.
Wed May 4:
Change Of Scene
- Ideally, you should have a change of scene at some point today
because it will help you to feel good and it will also brighten up your
day. Maybe you could visit somewhere you've never been before,
especially if you take someone along for company. Once again, friends
figure prominently in the day's events and you'll enjoy being sociable.
Lucky colours are ultramarine and yellow.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 51.
Thu May 5:
Too Big For Their Boots
- A certain person is getting awfully big for their boots, as
you're about to discover. They might brag about their latest
achievements or show off about their prosperity, or do something else
that makes you long to tell them to grow up. Try not to get drawn into
the sort of conversation in which you compete with each other to see
who's the smartest or swankiest.
Lucky colours are maroon and platinum.
Lucky numbers are 6 and 33.
Fri May 6:
- Today's New Moon will affect your friendships and future plans
over the next two weeks. This means you might meet someone who'll become
a new friend or associate, or an existing friendship could enter a
completely new phase. If you've been meaning to extend your social life
by joining a club or society, this is the perfect time to take the
plunge. It might work out a lot better than you'd hoped.
Lucky colours are jade and mushroom.
Lucky numbers are 10 and 51.
Sat May 7:
- If you're trying to concentrate on something important today
you'll do best if you can shut yourself away somewhere. That way, you
won't have to cope with distractions and interruptions that could put
you off your stroke or sidetrack you. Someone in authority is being very
garrulous, which is fine if you have the time to listen but annoying if
Lucky colours are pink and blue.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 15.
Sun May 8:
- Remember to contact yopur mother today, as it's her day. No need to castigate yourself over something you did or didn't do, to the point where it's all you can think about. If you have to listen to someone who's anxious to point out all your faults or pick holes in whatever you're saying, it's a difficult day but do your best to rise above it. Mother's love is what it's all about.Read more about Mothers' Day.
Lucky colours are yellow and blue.
Lucky numbers are 31 and 26.
Mon May 9:
Tension In The Air
- Someone is very impatient and hasty, and they'll object loudly
if they think anyone is being slow or dragging their heels. This will
soon cause a lot of tension because you'll feel edgy and as though this
person is breathing down your neck. If there's a delay or hitch in a
travel plan you'll want to get things moving again as fast as possible,
but others may not want to proceed at your speed.
Lucky colours are lilac and beige.
Lucky numbers are 29 and 39.
Tue May 10:
Powerhouse of Fortune
- With the Moon in your sign, you can be a veritable powerhouse
today. Your charm and magnetism is very strong, so don't hesitate to
work this to your advantage as Venus and Jupiter dance for you. One word
of warning: be careful not to overwhelm anyone with the force of your
emotions. Air signs may be especially uncomfortable with dramatic
displays, so make sure you know who your audience is!
Lucky colours are brick red and ivory.
Lucky numbers are 19 and 28.
Wed May 11:
- This is a great day for catching up with important paperwork,
whether it's connected with your work or your dealings with officialdom.
You'll find it easy to deal with bureaucrats, fill in forms or do
anything else that's necessary. If you really fancy getting organized
you'll gain a lot of satisfaction from doing some filing or chucking out
papers you no longer need.
Lucky colours are parchment and aqua.
Lucky numbers are 36 and 44.
Thu May 12:
- Your thoughts turn to plans for the future from today, and
you'll continue to think about them for the next two weeks. Maybe you
haven't got anything exciting planned, in which case you need to get out
your diary and arrange something nice. Or perhaps you're in the middle
of making some long-range plans and you now need to pay even more
attention to them than ever. More on Friday 13th.
Lucky colours are lime and lemon.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 49.
Fri May 13:
- Don't worry about the inauspicious date, because this looks like
being a really good day for you. You'll manage to get a lot done,
especially if it concerns serious matters, and you'll enjoy feeling that
you're on top of everything. It's also a great opportunity to talk to
friends you trust, perhaps because you want to pick their brains or
benefit from their experience.
Lucky colours are ebony and ivory.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 8.
Sat May 14:
- You're in the mood to spend money today, especially if you're
feeling slightly lonely or rather nostalgic. Splashing out is a way for
you to cheer yourself up, which is fine if you aren't going to end up
broke at the end of it all. Try to limit yourself if you're already
feeling short of money, otherwise you could easily be tempted to splurge
on things you can't afford.
Lucky colours are mango and blackberry.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 17.
Sun May 15:
Their Own Way
- A certain person is determined to go their own way today, and to
hell with the consequences. They're so keen to express their
independence and remind everyone that they're a free spirit that they
might easily go over the top and end up being a lot more outrageous or
bloody-minded than they'd intended. If you want to prove a point, try
not to get so steamed up that you're willing to risk almost anything as
Lucky colours are peach and coffee.
Lucky numbers are 21 and 68.
Mon May 16:
- Money has a nasty habit of coming between you and loved ones
today, especially if you object to the way someone is spending their
cash. Or is the boot on the other foot, with someone full of advice
about what you should and shouldn't be spending your money on?
Possessiveness could also enter the equation at some point, which will
lead to unpleasant scenes and a lot of shouting. You may be feeling
insecure about someone's feelings for you but try not to make them feel
hemmed in or trapped by your emotional demands.
Lucky colours are turquoise and caramel.
Lucky numbers are 24 and 47.
Tue May 17:
- The past couple of days have been rather hard-going so isn't it
about time you gave yourself a bit of a rest? This is the perfect day
for relaxing in familiar surroundings, preferably doing as little as
possible. Well, you might manage to raise the odd glass to your lips and
also to eat some delicious food, but you'll run out of energy at the
thought of having to do anything too energetic or strenuous. This is a
day for enjoying yourself!
Lucky colours are azure and champagne.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 54.
Wed May 18:
- Love could catch you by surprise today. You might be strongly
attracted to someone who isn't your usual type at all but who makes your
knees go weak all the same, or you could get caught up in an illicit
relationship that's exciting because it must be kept a secret. If you're
already involved with someone they'll need plenty of freedom today and
won't appreciate feeling emotionally tied down. You need to let them off
the leash for a short while!
Lucky colours are avocado and silver.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 21.
Thu May 19:
Change Of Scene
- Try to get out and about today because it will do you good to
have a change of scene. Even you, a home-loving Cancerian, can start to
feel stale and bored if you're stuck in one place for too long, so try
to vary your surroundings as much as possible today. Social events will
go well, too, and you'll enjoy talking to people who make you think.
Lucky colours are green and beige.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 78.
Fri May 20:
- Your mind is working well today so give it plenty of exercise.
You could get involved in an intellectual discussion that forces you to
think things through for yourself, or you might have to do some serious
thinking about a forthcoming travel plan. If you're often wary of saying
what you think you'll feel much braver about speaking up today, which is
good news if you want to fight your corner or express your point of view.
Lucky colours are terracotta and yellow.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 39.
Sat May 21:
- Today's Full Moon will have a powerful impact on your health
during the next two weeks. Maybe this is the spur you need to inspire
you to take better care of yourself, such as improving your diet,
getting more exercise or finally consulting the doctor about something
that's worrying you. It will also be the end of a chapter connected with
your work, but don't fret because this ending will lead on to a new
Lucky colours are navy and jade.
Lucky numbers are 35 and 20.
Sun May 22:
- During the past couple of weeks it hasn't always been easy to
make contact with friends, nor to know what they're talking about when
you do manage to get in touch. Well, this chaotic phase is now coming to
an end, but first you may have to sort out a few persistent problems
such as getting to grips with a misunderstanding that's sprung up with
Lucky colours are brass and navy.
Lucky numbers are 14 and 48.
Mon May 23:
Who To Believe?
- The question of who and what you should believe is never far
away today. Someone could easily mislead you, although it's a moot point
whether they do this intentionally or not. Or there could be a
communication glitch that means no one knows what's going on. Be very
careful when handling money because there could be lots of silly
mistakes, and if you're really unlucky there might also be some
Lucky colours are persimmon and black.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 32.
Tue May 24:
Behind the Scenes
- Passions may be ignited, so spend time with your significant
other today. You may have to compromise at work, as knives come out.
Thanks to Venus moving behind the scenes you find excuses to pass up
invitations -- you're too ill, too overweight, too much work to do, or
any number of other reasons. Romance may be secretive or based in
fantasy and dreams. Love relationships from the past can intrude. Resist
self-pity and turn your attention to helping those less fortunate than
Lucky colours are burgundy and bronze.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 21.
Wed May 25:
- This is a fantastic day for talking to friends and kindred
spirits because there's such a strong understanding between you. If
someone asks you for advice, you'll find the middle ground between being
too doom-laden and being overly optimistic. You're in a very efficient
and practical frame of mind, so swing into action if you've got to
organize something important. If you can't do it today, you'll never
Lucky colours are blue and mulberry.
Lucky numbers are 25 and 5.
Thu May 26:
Out Of The Way
- You're in the mood to enjoy yourself today, so anything
resembling hard work will come a long way down your list of priorities.
However, other people may not share your views and will wonder why you
aren't busily doing your bit. Try not to fall foul of a boss or superior
because you aren't working hard enough. Far better to get the work out
of the way and then have fun, because then you can enjoy yourself with a
Lucky colours are magenta and pineapple.
Lucky numbers are 38 and 41.
Fri May 27:
Mars Retrogrades Into Scorpio
- There's a lot of tension in the air with certain people poised
to spit the dummy. As Mars retrogrades into Scorpio, your fifth house of
romance, children and speculation, confrontations are likely. If these
are nothing to do with you and you just happen to be directly in the
firing line, your best bet is to make yourself scarce. But if you are
responsible for the outraged feelings you need to face the music, or
things will only get worse in weeks ahead.
Lucky colours are silver and maroon.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 73.
Sat May 28:
- You enter a reflective state of mind from today, and you'll
remain in a contemplative mood until early June. This is a great chance
to spend plenty of time alone, mulling over what's been going on in your
life recently and assessing your current situation. But bear in mind
that you'll feel almost tongue-tied at times, making it difficult for
you to put your feelings into words. It will help to tell loved ones how
you're feeling, otherwise they may think you've clammed up on them or
are giving them the cold shoulder for some reason.
Lucky colours are blue and honey.
Lucky numbers are 39 and 72.
Sun May 29:
- Beware anyone who thinks they're a victim or a saint today
because they'll submit you to an awful lot of emotional blackmail in
order to get their own way. You may not notice what's going on at the
time, although the penny will drop later on when you start to feel
annoyed about the way you were manipulated into doing what this person
wanted. Better make sure you don't behave in the same way yourself.
Lucky colours are almond and turquoise.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 37.
Mon May 30:
- This is a brilliant day for spending time with close family and
friends. You'll love being with people you know inside out, and the
sense of familiarity and camaraderie between you will help you to relax
and feel safe. If you're thinking about redecorating your home, start
making your plans but work out a budget you can afford, otherwise you
could easily get carried away.
Lucky colours are charcoal and lemon.
Lucky numbers are 39 and 66.
Tue May 31:
- There's a lot you can learn today, about all sorts of things, if
you keep your mind open. Even an everyday act such as reading the
newspaper or watching the television could leave you much better
informed, and may even spark your curiosity and make you want to
investigate something in a lot more detail. You may also consider
signing up for a course or class in a subject that you've always wanted
to know more about.
Lucky colours are yellow and orange.
Lucky numbers are 13 and 45.
