Tue May 1: May Day
Passionate Mars is in your sign and vibrant Venus is stimulating naughty Neptune, the crown prince of fantasy and delusion. May Day is traditionally the time when young people pair off, so when the Moon also moves into sexy Scorpio later in the day, mysterious foreigners or dark strangers are sure to be drawn to you. Read more on May Day. Romantic colours are dark red and shimmering purple. Lucky numbers are 9 and 12.
Wed May 2: Full Moon
The Full Moon in Scorpio is the Wesak Moon. This auspicious Moon commemorates the Buddha's birthday and is celebrated by Buddhists across the world. So it's a cultural Moon for you, dear Fish and you can expect some spiritual insights, which may come via communications from faraway places. Romance is in the stars also, so prepare to be pursued by a mysterious stranger! Advantageous colours are ruby and topaz. Lucky numbers are 9 and 21.
Thu May 3: Write It Down
You will be feeling very creative today and some of the most beneficial ideas concern neighbourhood projects and career improvements. Write it all down for reference. The general thrust of the day is fortunate and you should plan for the long term benefit rather than short term gain, though that is by no means out of the question. You are known for your caring side and now you can influence the powers that be to set about improving the lot of those less privileged. Will the phone ever stop...? Ambitious colours are royal blue and red coral. Lucky numbers are 3 and 10.
Fri May 4: Serious Communication
Although it might not seem quite so hot at the moment, this is a very fortunate period for you, Pisces. Don't fret about relatively minor problems, as these issues will shrink into perspective on the weekend, when the stars are really working for you. Serious communication is needed, especially if some people try to lay a power trip on you today. Advantageous colours are rose pink and marigold. Lucky numbers are 3 and 8.
Sat May 5: Good News
Career developments can be quite beneficial today, Pisces. You might also get some good news from afar; what a surprise! Your imagination is active, but don't let fantasy run away with you, especially if you feel like casting caution to the winds in a romantic encounter. Advantageous colours are sea green and dusky rose. Lucky numbers are 1 and 10.
Sun May 6: Slow Foxtrot
Jupiter, your life-ruler, is dancing a slow foxtrot with Saturn, the purifier. This augurs well for the future, especially if you have been studying hard and planning well. Your emotional life, on the other hand, is subject to severe buffeting, thanks to dark Pluto casting a cloud over lovely Venus, the goddess of love. Lovers could easily become jealous and possessive, or at the very least start throwing plates. Ugh, how horrid. Propitious colours are rose pink and jasmine. Lucky numbers are 4 and 10.
Mon May 7: Surprisingly Original
It's a lovely day for you, my sweet Fish, as the cosmos is definitely turning in your favour. Friends and neighbours will pitch in with a will and be keen to help you obtain your hopes and wishes. There is likely to be quite a bit going on in your local area, and if you have a brother or a sister, you are likely to get a surprise visit, or call. Your mind is surprisingly original and you are about to enter a period of beautiful romantic energies. Yum! Beneficial colours are carnelian and jade. Lucky numbers are 11 and 1.
Tue May 8: Romantic Month
It's a fabulous time to attract romance into your life, dear Fish, as Venus the goddess, floats into Cancer, your fifth house of love. You will be glittering with a certain something, as sexy Mars jumps for joy. Relationships with children are better, rapport with a romantic partner is intense, and social contacts are more fun. The cosmos boosts your imagination, your artistic urges are stimulated and creative energies, either on your own, or with a partner, should be successful. Sensuous colours are dusky rose and green jade. Lucky numbers are 1 and 5.
Wed May 9: Lovely Flavour
Some good news regarding your personal activities adds a lovely flavour to the day, which is underpinned by a beautiful performance from Jupiter, the lord of fortune. Jupiter is your life-ruler, so your instincts are reliable and you should not be put off by annoying busybodies at work. You are definitely more attractive at the moment, as Venus dances through your house of love, but don't get over-excited because you need to build up your energies. Fortunate colours are cobalt and chocolate. Lucky numbers are 1 and 10.
Thu May 10: Creative Imaginings
Your imagination is working overtime today, Pisces, but this can work to your advantage. Even though it feels strangely unreal, you can make good progress if you focus your attention on needs rather than wants. Try to get some time by yourself, so that you can turn these mysterious feelings into something creative, or at least can sort them into order. Write it down. It could be valuable to look back on. Creative colours are sea green and purple sage. Lucky numbers are 12 and 10.
Fri May 11: Family Matters
The focus of your attention for the rest of the month turns to such things as real estate transactions, repairs, or other matters related to your home or property. Family discussions, family business transactions and correspondence with or short trips to visit relatives are also high on your list. Why not dust off and restore family heirlooms, or gather information on your family’s genealogy and history..? You could even visit your childhood home. Favourable colours are lilac and moonstone. Lucky numbers are 4 and 5.
Sat May 12: Shaken If Not Stirred
There's a lot of activity in your sign today, Pisces, so prepare to be shaken, if not stirred. Good news on the family front will boost your spirits, but unexpected developments will help you lift your game. The sense of things being held back should begin to release from today, but don't get yourself into arguments because you are pushing your own opinions too hard. Romance tonight is risky, but fun if you can handle it. Positive colours are poppy red and aquamarine. Lucky numbers are 1 and 3.
Sun May 13: Mothers Day
The second Sunday in May is Mothers Day in many countries of the world. It is the ideal day to get in touch with your mother and to honour the feminine in our daily lives. You need to connect with the deep feelings that only a mother evokes. However, conflict is bubbling beneath the surface and you may need to change your personal priorities and values in order to avoid conflict. Compromise can be a good thing, if it redirects aggression and defuses long-held grievances. Read more on Mothers Day! Fortunate colours are orchid and moonstone. Lucky numbers are 1 and 2.
Mon May 14: Turn For The Better
Financial affairs take a turn for the better today, dear Fish, along with good career and professional developments. Lordly Jupiter, your life-ruler, gets a lovely boost, but don't just count on luck. This is the time when the steady work you have put in can pay dividends. Make sure everything is on the up and up. You are always caring for the less fortunate, so prepare for a period when your skills will be called upon. Auspicious colours are green jade and red coral. Lucky numbers are 12 and 10.
Tue May 15: Money Maker
Today you are infused with Mars, the energetic planet of initiative, touring your 2nd house of finances. This is promising news as you have a surge of vitality to assert yourself and meet your security needs. This should naturally translate into more earning power, but your tender Piscean nature must overcome the tendency to shy away from asking for what is yours. Auspicious colours are mulberry and marigold. Lucky numbers are 2 and 10.
Wed May 16: New Moon
A sibling is highlighted for you today and there could be some emotional news. You may be talking about long term security and care plans for your mother or a mother figure, or perhaps a sister or aunt. There will also be an opportunity for you to take a short trip. Ideal colours are pale rose and amethyst. Lucky numbers are 3 and 12.
Thu May 17: Home Stimulation
Home matters continue to be important and today there is another theme concerning mother figures and siblings. The family life and situation at hand is dominating your thoughts and emotions and you'll be able to adequately express your feelings and ideas to whoever else is involved. Fortunate colours are pale cream and dark grape. Lucky numbers are 4 and 9.
Fri May 18: Renewal Is Possible
It's obviously been a dramatic week with family matters and today we see the climax of the events since the New Moon. Expect to feel torn between your parents or possibly between staying home to work out the matter and going to work. Renewal is possible if someone is willing to admit to a dark side. Calming colours are dusky rose and chestnut. Lucky numbers are 4 and 12.
Sat May 19: Creative Block
Stress stifles your creativity and prevents any inspired thoughts from flowing. You've wanted to channel your energy into singing or something musical or artistic, but you're met with anxiety instead of inspiration. Why not see a show or movie and relax instead of pushing through blocks of frustration. Tomorrow is a new day. Beneficial colours are aubergine and terracotta. Lucky numbers are 2 and 5.
Sun May 20: Unpredictable
Someone at home calls you on your unpredictable behaviour as of late and you do not like the confrontation one bit. It's true that you've been going through many revolutionary changes in your identity, but perhaps you have not been aware of how much this is affecting your family. Today you become fully informed. Favourable colours are khaki and midnight blue. Lucky numbers are 4 and 63.
Mon May 21: Sun In Gemini
Today the Sun enters Gemini and begins a month long tour of your fourth house of family and home matters. It is likely the theme from yesterday will continue and you'll need to become more aware of the needs of your family members. Providential colours are burnt orange and pearl. Lucky numbers are 31 and 24.
Tue May 22: All Good!
Today you are enjoying honours of some type that are likely to be career related. It is possible for you to receive a promotion or perhaps an increase in responsibility which at some point leads to advancement. The point is that expansion is happening at work and it's all good! Auspicious colours are ivory and cinnamon. Lucky numbers are 18 and 28.
Wed May 23: Family Challenge
This is a day when everyone seems to be at the edge of their seat asserting their needs and like a circus clown juggling several balls in the air; you're trying to keep up. Eventually you know you'll drop at least one of those balls and it will be at odds with what someone you love needs from you. You can't win so you might as well keep juggling. Sociable colours are teal blue and pale gold. Lucky numbers are 33 and 50.
Thu May 24: Neptune Rules
Your sign is ruled by the planet Neptune and today it turns retrograde in your twelfth house of all that is hidden. This is going to make you extremely introspective and you'll need to carve out plenty of alone time to gather your energy effectively over the next few months. You are like an emotional sponge by nature and with your ruler turning retrograde; all the emotions from the past might be dredged up for you to soak in. Communicative colours are cream and olive. Lucky numbers are 32 and 38.
Fri May 25: In A Corner
Today it may become clear to you who is trying to manipulate your tender nature and who is truly in a relationship with you because they care. The victims in the world gravitate towards you like a moth to a flame because they sense you are someone who can save them. One of your lessons is to know when to stop the saving so that you don't become a doormat. It looks like someone is trying to step on you right about now. Positive colours are magnolia and strawberry. Lucky numbers are 9 and 63.
Sat May 26: Help At Home
Today you enjoy the help of everyone at home - a welcome change of pace! Perhaps they sense you are a bit drained and want to help fortify you before you dry up completely but your family is sharing their resources with you without hesitation today. Enjoy every bit of it! Ideal colours are coffee and cream. Lucky numbers are 38 and 56.
Sun May 27: Parental Issues
There is a major parental issue that brews for you today either with your own parents or between you and a spouse as parents. No one seems to agree on the best way to act with authoritative guidance since philosophies are worlds apart and the parties involved have no problem shoving their opinions in the other person's face. Positive colours are aquamarine and hazelnut. Lucky numbers are 15 and 57.
Mon May 28: Real Estate
If you are planning to sell or buy a home or close any type of real estate transaction, you have a brilliant day to do so today. The energy is positive for anything having to do with real estate, contracts and loans or venture capital such as mortgages or investments. Plan your day accordingly! Inspirational colours are black velvet and ultramarine. Lucky numbers are 38 and 32.
Tue May 29: Mercury In Cancer
Mercury, the planet of thoughts and communication is settling into your fifth house of creativity, love and children for a nice visit and you have been ignited with the nesting instinct! You want to nurture a creative project, lover or a child with deep sensitivity and intuition. Inspirational colours are silver and burgundy. Lucky numbers are 14 and 37.
Wed May 30: Deluded Beliefs
Today you may have to come to terms with knowing that what inspired your soul in the past has actually been nothing more than an illusion. Living beyond your personal limits may prove to be self destructive so keep boundaries in check. Ideal colours are hazelnut and caramel. Lucky numbers are 25 and 29.
Thu May 31: Blue Moon
A Full Moon tonight in your tenth house of career and status will provide a culmination to an important project that is bound to improve your reputation.
