Sun May 1:
May Day Mixups
- Now it's May Day, so sociable Librans would do well to whip up a
fiery celebration. Or just go to a festive party if you don't feel like
organizing one yourself. The ancient feast of Beltane is still
celebrated far and wide (right across the globe, really), so get into
the swing of things. With the Moon in Pisces, lively attractions will
come in twos! But Mercury's retrograde! Uh oh. How will you ever make up
your mind and choose between them? More on May Day. More on Beltane.
Lucky colours are yellow sapphire and azure blue.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 8.
Mon May 2:
- If you couldn't control your feelings yesterday and you snapped,
spend today making amends. Have a chat to the person concerned and
explain how you were feeling, or buy them a small gift to show how sorry
you are. This is a good day for sorting out other sorts of difficult
situations too, such as patching up a misunderstanding with a loved one
Lucky colours are auburn and brass.
Lucky numbers are 10 and 40.
Tue May 3:
Best Of Both Worlds
- It's the best of both worlds today because not only are you in a
calm state emotionally but you're also able to think seriously about
important matters. This means you'll be a dab hand at sorting out
anything connected with bureaucracy, such as having to talk to your tax
office or get in touch with your bank. You'll also manage to cultivate a
warm rapport with a boss, superior or older relative.
Lucky colours are bronze and lemon.
Lucky numbers are 24 and 66.
Wed May 4:
Soul Of Diplomacy
- You're known as the soul of diplomacy, Libra, and today you
certainly have the knack of being able to keep on the right side of
people. If you're working as part of a team you'll manage to fit in well
and keep everyone happy, and also to show that you aren't being
competitive or overly ambitious. If you're going to a job interview it
will go much better than you expected.
Lucky colours are amethyst and fawn.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 40.
Thu May 5:
- A certain someone is rather full of themselves today. It's
nothing to worry about and you may even find this person's behaviour
rather endearing, because they can't help being enthusiastic, generous
and big-hearted. If you're taking part in a negotiation or discussion,
try to abide by your own opinions and don't keep changing your mind in
order to please the people around you.
Lucky colours are brown and passionfruit.
Lucky numbers are 30 and 7.
Fri May 6:
- You aren't at your most practical or organized today, so take
care if you're supposed to be doing something complicated or important.
The fact is that you'd rather curl up in a corner with a good book and
let the world carry on without you, so it will be a struggle to put on a
smiling face and pretend that you're completely in control of yourself.
Ideally, you should postpone doing anything really important until you
feel better able to cope with it.
Lucky colours are coffee and lime.
Lucky numbers are 13 and 66.
Sat May 7:
- If you're in a hurry today you'd be wise to avoid getting drawn
into conversations unless they're absolutely necessary. That's because
people are feeling very chatty and once they get talking it may be
almost impossible to shut them up again. If you're talking to your other
half, make sure you listen to what they're saying, even if they do get
rather heated in the process.
Lucky colours are nutmeg and lilac.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 69.
Sun May 8:
- You need to cultivate a thick skin or someone's harsh criticisms
and scathing comments will cut you to the quick. Are you reading too
much into it, making you rather paranoid and touchy?
It's difficult to know, but you can help the situation by refusing to
brood on things that go wrong and also by keeping faith in yourself and
your abilities. Don't send yourself any negative messages! Especially to your mother. Read more about Mothers' Day.
Lucky colours are velvet and basalt.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 22.
Mon May 9:
- You're in the mood to pamper yourself, and that means spending
money on a few little treats. Nothing wrong with that, provided that you
know when to stop and you don't raid any communal kitties or joint
accounts in the process. At some point today you'll want to bring out
your sensual, hedonistic side and you'll feel short-changed if this
Lucky colours are khaki and sepia.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 20.
Tue May 10:
- You can be in favour with the Powers That Be as the Moon adds
kindness and sensitivity to your work and family relationships today.
This is a good time to try to understand the feeling of the authority
figures in your life; you can also take this opportunity to express your
own sentiments. You can to get quite a lot accomplished today, when all
things seems to fall into place.
Lucky colours are garnet red and emerald green.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 28.
Wed May 11:
Pick Up The Phone
- Your thoughts and emotions are working in tandem today, making
it easy for you to put your feelings into words. This is just what you
need if you're hoping to have a long chat with your other half or you've
got to explain your motives to someone. If you haven't been in touch
with a far-off friend for a while, pick up the phone or send them an
email to let them know you're thinking about them.
Lucky colours are marigold and aquamarine.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 26.
Thu May 12:
- The coming fortnight will be a fantastic opportunity to think
seriously about your finances, and especially about those you share with
other people. That might mean the joint account you share with your
partner, the money you've invested in a savings account or the pension
plan you're thinking of starting. If necessary, talk to someone whose
business is money, so you know you're getting some good advice.
Lucky colours are hazel and honey.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 8.
Fri May 13:
No Flies On You
- This is a super day for being organized and efficient,
especially if you're at work. There are no flies on you today, and no
danger of you discovering any nasty mistakes you've made. In fact,
there's no need for you to feel worried about it being Friday the 13th
because everything will go really well for you. You'll also give a very
good impression to bosses or any other people in authority who happen to
be watching you. More on Friday 13th.
Lucky colours are apricot and green.
Lucky numbers are 16 and 5.
Sat May 14:
Meet For Lunch
- All you really want to do is spend time with friends and other
kindred spirits, preferably doing as little as possible. Meeting some
friends for lunch before doing some gentle shopping is your idea of a
perfect day, and you might even be inspired to visit an art gallery or
museum at some point so you can soak up some culture. But hard work?
Lucky colours are tangerine and blueberry.
Lucky numbers are 13 and 45.
Sun May 15:
- Someone is feeling daredevilish and naughty today, ready to take
all sorts of risks that will probably make your hair stand on end. They
may also be keen to prove a point, and will be so determined to do this
that they won't really care what happens as a result. Take care if you
start to feel agitated or restless, because that might make you
careless, leaving you accident-prone. Pay attention to what you're
doing, especially if you're driving or handling hot or sharp objects.
Lucky colours are red and silver.
Lucky numbers are 38 and 41.
Mon May 16:
- There's a lot of hidden tension in the air, especially when
dealing with loved ones. You might love them but right now you want to
scream at them, especially if you're convinced that you know best about
the way they should be behaving. It won't help if you're feeling jealous
or possessive about someone, and annoyed that they're spending more time
with their friends than they are with you. The trouble is that nagging
or shouting at them won't make you very popular with them.
Lucky colours are maroon and fuchsia.
Lucky numbers are 16 and 28.
Tue May 17:
- Today promises to be one of the highlights of the entire month,
so try to get as much enjoyment out of it as possible. Why do anything
boring or responsible? You'd much rather forget about duty and have some
fun instead. With the Moon in your sign, it's a fabulous day for mixing
with people who stimulate your brain or who always make you laugh. There
could also be the prospect of some enjoyable travel to look forward to.
Lucky colours are silver and vermilion.
Lucky numbers are 21 and 16.
Wed May 18:
- Is a relationship getting dull and predictable? If so, it's time
to inject some spontaneity into it, preferably by doing things on the
spur of the moment and taking a few risks. For instance, if you always
spend Wednesday nights at home, maybe you should go out for a meal for a
change. There could also be a surprise in store when you realize you're
attracted to someone who's totally different from your usual type.
Lucky colours are taupe and azure.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 54.
Thu May 19:
- You value your privacy today, especially if you can share it
with a very special person. If you're supposed to be going out with lots
of people you might be tempted to make your excuses, simply because you
can't face all that hubbub and noise. Don't be surprised if someone
confides in you, but make sure you can keep their secrets and treat them
with the respect they deserve.
Lucky colours are avocado and gold.
Lucky numbers are 30 and 38.
Fri May 20:
Thirst For Adventure
- You'll have a real thirst for adventure during the next four
weeks, and the burning question is how you're going to satisfy it. Maybe
you fancy taking off on a journey, whether it's through a holiday, a day
break or a long weekend. Or perhaps you've got to stay put but you're
going to send your brain on its travels instead by increasing your
knowledge. Opportunities will never be far away, either, so try to grab
them whenever you spot them.
Lucky colours are brown and peach.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 8.
Sat May 21:
- You have a tremendous amount of nervous energy today and you
need to find positive ways of expressing it, otherwise it could make you
rather irritable and restless. Ideally, you should do something
physical, such as going for a brisk walk, cleaning the house while
working up a sweat or getting your money's worth out of the gym. Don't
take out your frustrations on people who don't deserve them.
Lucky colours are pink and blue.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 45.
Sun May 22:
Things Run More Smoother
- You've encountered some irritating hiccups while handling
financial matters recently, but things start to sort themselves out from
today. However, you should check that things are running smoothly again
by taking a look at your bank account or credit card payments. If you
spot a mistake you'll be in a position to sort it out quickly.
Lucky colours are velvet and oyster.
Lucky numbers are 31 and 77.
Mon May 23:
- Be very careful when handling financial matters today because
not everything is as straightforward as it seems. For instance, someone
may tell you about a fail-safe way of making money but neglect to
mention all the reasons why it's totally illegal. There could also be
mistakes if you're spending money, such as being short-changed or
overcharged. So watch out!
Lucky colours are yellow and blue.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 45.
Tue May 24:
Light And Easy
- Today should be fun, light and easy, so enjoy the happy vibes.
Your intellect and spiritual awareness will reach a peak as Venus
travels through your ninth house of the higher mind. Let it flow.
Dealings with foreigners and cultured types are also favoured. Romance
heats up as well, so do something special for your beloved. You may do
well through travel and artistic pursuits too.
Lucky colours are bronze and raspberry.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 27.
Wed May 25:
- This is a fantastic day for using your brain with precision and
accuracy. For instance, it's great for filling in a complicated form or
going through some complex paperwork because you'll find it easy to
concentrate on what you're doing. It's especially good for paying
attention to the sort of finicky details that you normally aren't
interested in but which are right up your street today.
Lucky colours are copper and purple.
Lucky numbers are 31 and 31.
Thu May 26:
Home And Heart
- Home is where your heart is today and you won't want to stray
very far away from it. Maybe you could invite some of your nearest and
dearest round for a meal that you cook yourself, giving you the
opportunity to really spoil them. If you can't see someone in person
you'll enjoy ringing them up for a chat to find out how they are,
especially if you've been rather worried about them lately.
Lucky colours are tan and green.
Lucky numbers are 30 and 38.
Fri May 27:
Mars Retrogrades Into Scorpio
- If you thought yesterday was fraught with tension the
temperature rises a few notches again today, as Warrior Mars retreats
into your house of finances and values. What's eating you? Maybe you're
annoyed because your spare time is being eroded by duties that are
weighing heavily on your shoulders. You might also be miffed by the
flippant attitude of a certain person who you think should be taking
life a lot more seriously. Calm down or you'll blow a gasket.
Lucky colours are azure and coffee.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 49.
Sat May 28:
- What a difference a day makes. Yesterday you had your chin on
the ground, but today you're able to look the world in the eye again.
You're keen to make up for lost time by doing things that are exciting
and mentally stimulating, such as visiting somewhere for the first time.
You're also eager to rise to a challenge and prove something to
yourself. Good luck!
Lucky colours are oyster and honeycomb.
Lucky numbers are 38 and 54.
Sun May 29:
Under The Surface
- Tread carefully today because there's a lot going on under the
surface. You could get locked in a battle of wills with someone you
love, forcing you to look more deeply at your relationship. Love has the
potential to transform your life right now, but only if you're ready to
see how things really are rather than how you would like them to be.
Lucky colours are grey and pink.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 14.
Mon May 30:
- You're surrounded by good luck today, so don't waste it. That
doesn't mean you should take enormous risks and wild gambles in the
belief that you can't lose, because that would be crazy. Nevertheless,
you could find that you're in the right place at the right time, or that
someone offers you the sort of opportunity you could normally only dream
of. So don't look a gift horse in the mouth but don't push your luck
Lucky colours are ginger and quartz.
Lucky numbers are 14 and 15.
Tue May 31:
- You don't have a lot of self-discipline today, so be careful if
you're supposed to be watching your weight or monitoring what you eat,
because you'll want to forget all that and indulge yourself instead. It
would be far better to allow yourself a little treat and then return to
your strict regime than to hold out until temptation gets the better of
you and hurtles you into a massive binge.
Lucky colours are black and blonde.
Lucky numbers are 27 and 20.
