Aries horoscope for May 2022
You are brimming with idealistic hopes and dreams during the first half of the month. If these goals involve going into business with a friend, however, you may want to put off any decisions until next month. Communications could be manipulative and prone to misunderstandings, especially concerning joint financial endeavours. There may be someone in your social group that sees you as more of a mark than a true pal, so don’t mix money and friendship. From the 24th, you will be at a two-year high in terms of charisma and confidence. From this point on, if you feel invincible, you probably are.
Taurus horoscopes for May 2022
Get what you deserve
A romantic or business partner may be jealous of your work ethic and commitment to career success. In order to undermine you, they may cause confusion in your economic life, by either undercutting your earnings or squandering your savings. Make sure you are getting paid what you are owed and put off signing any contracts or negotiating monetary terms until next month, if possible. If you can not put things off, have everything checked out by a third party, as you could be easily manipulated financially. In love, your significant other may be using your salary to fund an extravagant social life. Try to socialize with friends without breaking the bank by setting a sound entertainment budget and sticking to it.

People may manipulate you into helping them with their chores, while your dreams and goals lay on the backburner. Keep a wide berth from friends, colleagues and family members who play the guilt or victim card so that you will pick up their heavy lifting. Resist the urge to white knight for those with a sob story, or you could be left feeling drained and fatigued. Emotional nervousness mid-month could also lead to emotional eating, so remain consciously aware of how stress is affecting you, so you don’t partake in bad dietary habits. Work duties start to ebb towards the 24th, ushering in the true start of spring, when you will be ready to party, socialize and widen your social circle.

Don’t forget about your friends
You may be so absorbed in your love life that it could throw a wrench into your social sphere. If you are using your friends for free psychological counseling when it comes to your romantic issues, you may feel confusion and hurt when they abruptly distance themselves from you. Alternatively, an emotionally needy new suitor could be isolating you from those you normally hang with. In any case, it is best to keep amour and amitié as separate as possible to avoid misunderstandings. You have recently entered an extremely fortuitous period for your career, and starting the 24th, your ambition and drive be ready when opportunity knocks. If you have been wanting to implement changes in your professional life, there is no time like the present.

Get your house in order
You may suddenly wake up to the realization that your home life is the root cause of whatever is holding you back in terms of career, friendship and love. It is time to start living outside the four walls of your abode, and, luckily, Mars comes to the rescue, widening your horizons through travel, study and esoteric pursuits. From the 24th, if you expand your mind and worldview, you will once again feel back in the flow of life’s greater energy. If there is a career ambition that you put on the back burner, it is time to dust it off and revive it on the 25th. After a long existential hibernation, you will wake up once again to all the universe has to offer.

Whether single or in a couple, passion and tenderness await, so gather ye rosebuds while ye may, especially on the 17th.

Take a time out

Give people some space

Instead of overloading those in your social circle with your work problems and romantic dilemmas, enjoy fun times discussing art, film and comedy, so you all can escape from the travails of everyday life. For singles and couples, the 19th and 25th are excellent date nights, when your magnetism, spontaneity and charm are off the charts.
