May 2017 Monthly Horoscope

Welcome to our May Monthly Horoscope 2017 For All Zodiac Signs!

Theme of the Month

You get what you ask for if and when you act in alignment with what you want to get.

You may have heard the old saying “you get what you ask for”. In this month of Taurus (April 20-May 20, 2017), now is the time to ask for what you desire.


Taurus represents our lifestyle resources and needs. I use the term “lifestyle needs” because in truth, Taurus addresses the resources or desires we need to survive. It is the financial, material, and physical of our lives, and having those resources in place is what has us individually and collectively feel safe, comfortable, secure, and at ease. We feel taken care of when our lifestyle needs are met.

Taurus is the sign of all things material, physical, and financial and most commonly, our basic survival needs – food, shelter, sex, and such. Security and stability of these resources are associated with Taurus. Comfort and ease in obtaining these resources are also important considerations for Taurus. And of course, there’s the infamous bull-headed stubbornness and force that Taurus can have when its will is contested or when it wants its way.

But with so many influences still in Aries throughout this Sun in Taurus period of 2017, asking isn’t enough. In fact, even if the abundance of Aries energy (initiation, assertiveness) wasn’t present, asking alone would not be enough.

In addition to asking, one must be willing to take action.

If you look attentively, you may notice that many of us often act in opposition to what we really desire. You may know someone who says they want to date somebody, but then runs away or hides when someone asks them for a date. You may also know someone who says they want to win the lottery, but then never buys a ticket. You probably even know someone who says they want or need a job, but then they turn down every offer made to them.

The funny thing is…then these same people complain that nothing they want ever comes through for them. They wax poetic about how they never get what they want, yet they never take a step to bring about what they say they want. They wait for the resources they want to come to them, and even if they do come to them, they may deny or reject them.

Talking and asking alone isn’t enough. Action and follow-through is necessary. It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture or a lot of effort – just something to show that you are in alignment with your thoughts and words. Even if it’s just one thing to affirm your intention, that one thing may be enough to bring forth what you’ve asked for.

And your actions actually need to be in alignment with what you are asking for.

If you are asking for a vacation to Hawai’i and the money comes up for you to take the trip, booking a trip to Siberia instead is not in alignment with what you asked for.

If you want to take the 9:00 a train to work yet you choose to stop for coffee instead of getting to the train station in time to board, you miss your train.

Instead, follow through on your intentions and words. Book the vacation you intended and planned to book. Leave a few minutes earlier to get that cup of coffee and board your train on time.

Give yourself a chance in this Taurus period to ask for and act for what you truly desire.

After all, if you don’t ask, you may miss your chance. But if you ask then don’t take any action toward it, you may miss an opportunity to manifest that which you say you are committed to having in your life.

That is the gift of Taurus – the opportunity to become aware of and bring forth the fruition of not only your most basic survival needs, but also your heart’s desires. And in this 2017 cycle of Taurus, through awareness, powerful actions can be taken and the seeds for powerful results can be planted.

Look at where Taurus falls in your astrological chart for guidance in how to utilize this energy in your personal life journey. For more information and insights, read the May 2017 Monthly Horoscope for your zodiac sign.

May Horoscope Overview

This month we have a New Moon /Soopermoon in Gemini, on May 25, 2017 at 22.44 GMTGemini, the first air sign, is symbolized by the archetype of “the twins” denoting the human need for communication and interaction. In astrology, Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods. The domain of Gemini is the mental realm: communication, speaking, writing, education, commerce, and travel.

Since all New Moons are “seeding times”, this is a time to set your intention for communicating your ideas. It’s a fresh chapter for you to write. The New Moon is an ideal time to set your intentions for the coming thirty days.

If you utilize the energy of Gemini you might want to consider intentions and goals that involve the ways in which you communicate, and how your message is coming across.

Learning is also part of the Gemini field, as is the way your mind operates. Also high on the Gemini list of priorities is socializing and exchanging information. On a deeper level, healing the split that can occur when the Gemini twins are separated is part of the work of becoming a fully integrated person.

Gemini is a “mercurial” or changeable sign, the chameleon of the zodiac. At this New Moon, allow yourself to be more flexible in your mental outlook. Are you feeling “stuck” or in a rut? The Gemini New Moon gives you a breath of fresh air and a chance to appreciate the humor in life. Is there something you wish to accomplish? Writing down your list of goals is the first step.

Are you feeling the urge to branch out mentally or intellectually at this time? Perhaps learn a new language….a writing class…public speaking…..take a short trip? Conversely, are you ready to write or speak about what you know….or preparing to “sell” a new business plan?

Often a sibling will occupy much of your thoughts or time during a Gemini New Moon. If you have sibling (or even a close friend) that you have not communicated with in a while, this is the time to do so.
