Taurus Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: If you have been dealing with panic attacks and feelings of deep-seated insecurity, your mojo comes back with a bang. You are now ready to take on the world with gusto and enthusiasm. While you are normally a fairly traditional sign, the next seven years are about shaking up the status quo and freeing your inner rebel.
The Challenging: Your personality may be all over the place, making it hard for you to stick to one thing and see it through. You may come off as flakey, eccentric and unreliable to those around you. Live up to your commitments.
The Takeaway: While you may get easily bored, you will never be boring.
Gemini Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: The past several years have been a non-stop networking fest of people and friends coming and going, entering and exiting your life, often for unpredictable reasons. Even for an extroverted sign such as yours, it could have become quite exhausting. With your social life stabilizing, it is now time to turn your attention to yourself and your own needs.
The Challenging: You are not a sign that enjoys navel-gazing, but if you use the next few years to dig deep into your psyche, you could heal a lot of deep wounds that are plaguing you. If you insist on burying things deep and ignoring your inner issues, you could develop anxiety and panic attacks.
The Takeaway: Leave the social swirl to relax on a therapist's couch.
Cancer Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: The instability, stress and ever-changing nature of your career will now settle down, allowing a comfortable sense of routine and security to return. This sense of peace also gives you the mental calm to go out and enjoy yourself! Over the next seven years, you can meet a lot of interesting, unique people if you get out and mingle.
The Challenging: Many of the people entering your world will be as frustrating as they are fascinating. You could feel like a magnet for unreliable, flakey people, but maybe they find you emotionally needy and suffocating, as well.
The Takeaway: Loosen up the emotionally strangling ties of stiflingly close friendships, and just have some fun.
Leo Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: You may have felt in an extended existential crisis for a long while now, not really ever finding your place in your world. That is all set to change, and so will your career trajectory. You can shoot to the top with overnight success, if you work hard and keep up with all your responsibilities.
The Challenging: The workplace will be filled with excitement, but also stress. You need to run on all cylinders to keep up. Even if you do, golden opportunities may disappear as quickly as they arise due to no fault of your own, but because of external circumstances, such as a company buyout, for example.
The Takeaway: Never rest on your laurels, keep hustling, networking and striving for more to ensure continued success.
Virgo Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: Insecurities about your financial future will begin to recede, especially if you have been dealing with debt, loans, mortgages or joint property. If you have been a puppet tied to other people's purse strings, you will be able to untangle yourself and live off your own earnings. The next seven years offer a lot of inspiration if you decide to travel or expand your mind through study or books.
The Challenging: With your love life in a state of disarray or non-existence, you may wonder what your overall purpose in life is. You may feel disconnected from, or made anxious by, your surroundings, leaving you feeling frozen and afraid.
The Takeaway: Focus on the small details of everyday life to take your mind off the big picture.
Libra Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: If your love life has been a rollercoaster ride of multiple partners or non-stop drama, look for stability to return. Isn't better to have one partner who offers non-stop excitement and variety in the bedroom? Your romantic life will heat up, quite literally, if you open yourself up to experimentation.
The Challenging: Finances could cause a concern as you plan for your future. You could pay off debts, only to cut loose and pile up new ones. Credit card spending could tempt you to overdo it, or you could bite off more than you can chew in terms of a mortgage. If you are dependent on other people for money, they could use it as a weapon.
The Takeaway: Earn your own keep, and save instead of spend.
Scorpio Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: If you have been drowning in chores and caregiving, the stress of it all now will alleviate considerably. The focus will now shift to relationships. If you are single, you can attract a wide array of fascinating lovers, while those in a partnership can reignite the excitement by spending time together trying new things.
The Challenging: Even though you will have a non-stop line-up of suitors, none of them may stick for long, as you may have a hard time finding the one. If you are in a relationship, your lover may be flakey or unreliable, causing you endless headaches, as you strive for greater, yet always elusive, control.
The Takeaway: If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with.
Sagittarius Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: You may have had to deal with high-maintenance lovers or spoiled children who drained your bank account. You will now get back on top of your game and stop being wrapped around every pinky that passes you by. Instead, this is an excellent time to volunteer and make a difference in the world by joining a social cause or organization you believe in. This is also excellent period for weight loss, as your metabolism will be speedier than usual.
The Challenging: You may feel overwhelmed by a never-ending sea of tasks and chores, which could cause stress. Make sure to eat healthily and get plenty of rest to avoid anxiety and other health issues.
The Takeaway: Focus your resources on helping others, instead of being bled dry.
Capricorn Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: You may have moved house several times over the past seven years, or your home life could have been filled with stress and change in other ways. A sense of rootedness and calm now returns to the domestic sphere. The focus shifts to romance, and you could find yourself swept off your feet by exhilarating new loves. This is also an inspired time for creation – of either art or your own little baby.
The Challenging: With all the sudden passion surrounding you, you could also get unexpectedly pregnant, if you do not take precautions. You may also suffer from too much of a good thing, making you fickle and prone to cheating or jumping from lover to lover. Alternatively, you could be drawn to unreliable players who are not in it for the long term.
The Takeaway: Can't escape Cupid's crossfire.
Aquarius Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: While exciting, inspiring conversations abounded for the past several years, you were also subject to your fair share of temper tantrums and outbursts. You will now be able to keep your tongue under control, leading to more harmonious relations with others. If you have been longing to move, now is the time lift up your roots and resettle.
The Challenging: You may have to deal with a lot of unforeseen circumstances besetting you and your family situation over the next seven years. There may be a lot of stress due to caregiving or unpredictability. You may even need to move several times, leading to feelings of insecurity.
The Takeaway: If roots have become ropes that tie you down, it's time to shake up your foundations.
Pisces Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: Financial insecurity could have had you job-hopping or working several gigs at once for a long while now. Monetary worries will now recede. Over the next seven years, your focus turns to communication. You will be able to speak freely and fluidly, allowing you to shake off your shyness.
The Challenging: You could easily lose your cool in conversations and blurt out things you didn't mean to say – which is particularly unsettling for a secretive sign such as yours. Alternatively, your tendency to babble on, jumping from one topic to the next, could come off as a jumbled thinking, making you seem flighty, flakey, or downright confusing to others.
The Takeaway: Make time to listen, or you may end up talking to yourself.
Aries Horoscopes for May 2018The Good: If you have a been a hot-headed diva for the past seven years, all your minions can breathe a sigh of relief, as you will now morph back into the cheery, warm-hearted Aries we all know and love. Over the next seven years, you have a chance to greatly increase your income – but you must work hard and never let an opportunity go to waste.
The Challenging: Money can be ripped from your hands as easily as it is dropped in your lap, whether from profligate overspending or missed opportunities. It may hard to keep a budget because your financial situation is constantly shifting.
The Takeaway: Don't count your cases of Crystal until they are bottled and corked.
