May Horoscope

Pay Attention to Details, Pare Down

Jupiter and Saturn are incompatible these days — a generic transit that applies to all of us. Jupiter is our “big picture.” Naturally optimistic, we plan large and talk happy. It’s busy internationally, and many of us are widening our sphere. Saturn is tight management, being a realist. How we work successfully with this duo lies in the details and their orderly progression. Mars in Virgo these many months has piled up cosmic clutter. Have you stayed on top of it? Pare down for progress. For a personal reading, contact me at — Sherryl Nova

Taurus  (April 20-May 20)
Jupiter smiles until June 11. Be proactive with a lagging project. Work steadily; even plodding is good. The goal is to be ready for the general population by then. When it’s done, take a little vacation and change your latitude. When you return, presentation is the key. How well can you communicate the plan? There are those who can assist you, even do a better job. Don’t micromanage. Invest through service fees.

Gemini  (May 21-June 20)
When communicating with the force (prayer, meditation, etc.), do your answers seem to be an exercise in 7th grade math? Then you are close to success! Where you are willing to defer payment (gratification), the principal increases and the eventual payoff is richer. The metaphysics of Monopoly would enrich you now. Host a game for fun and profit. Your values are changing as a result of your spiritual life. Pay attention. Breathe.

Cancer  (June 21-July 22)
A retrograde Venus in your spiritual space will result in crises of consciousness. Individuals offer support or sustenance. Before you relent in relief, use your Crabbian gut instinct. Going it alone, for the most part, will bring you answers faster than imbibing in the roar of the crowd. Behind-the-scenes meetings boost your faith in the future. Occasionally, get out of your head and into the pool. Be serene.

Leo  (July 23-Aug. 22)
After years of drought, your intrinsic value is budding. By proving that your talents continue to increase, you may be chosen to do some high-level marketing that complements your skills and assures you a place in the game. A magical component is a drab little word: budget. How clever are you when allocating funds and resources? You are royalty, but must become your own chancellor of the exchequer to rule. Establish your worth.

Virgo  (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Slow Virgo-Mars (since last fall) has often snatched your last nerve and put you in another free fall. You have a solid and valuable inventory of skills and resources. All these contribute to a perfect lecture class. But without lab work, talk is cheap. Your magnificent dream is eminently doable; you must consciously react to information and then apply it. Fear is false evidence appearing real, creating an uncomfortable limbo.

Libra  (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Seduction is a powerful energy. It consists of actions intended to assure a submissive, needy reaction from a worthy opponent. Out of this energy, we create life; it’s that serious. When seduced, we give up power to the other. Our interest is compulsive. A Libra can tell you to go to hell so you look forward to the trip. They know what you want to hear, truth be damned. Altruistic or manipulative? It’s your choice.

Scorpio  (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This month is a high point for your networking skills. Encourage more communication, knowing your sharing of resources helps you first. You have the juice to initiate some powerful alliances by insisting A should meet B. Doodle equilateral triangles, infinitely connecting. This is a spatial math equation that will prove you are only two e-mails/phone calls away from an important resolution.

Sagittarius  (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Progress depends upon the quality of your vendors and providers. If you are lifting heavy furniture, the problem is insufficient or inefficient help. Your self-awareness as the keeper of the flame flickers in the wind of annoying details. If you can easily do so, delegate. Time is money. Leave yourself time and space for the big picture. Trust in your choices of individual talents. Be a job provider and improve your position.

Capricorn  (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Forcing a square-peg alliance into a round hole over and over again yields the same results. In one major conflict, your position has become an obstacle to progress. With the best intentions, you use personal power for manipulation of the other side. That’s not going to work. You are best served by eliminating your desire for that perfect union that will never be. Focus on legalities and logical contracts. Success lurks; jump on it.

Aquarius  (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Destroy in order to rebuild. Extreme luck is with the one who knows the end is near. Unworkable situations or obsolete connections require justifiable homicide. Since nature abhors a vacuum, voids fill naturally. Are you capable of letting go? A firm decision will force a 90-degree shift in your experience, which, past the pain of cauterization, creates a new level. New beginnings are fortunate.

Pisces  (Feb. 19-March 20)
Emotional strength comes from command central, but there are two. One is your domestic environment; the other is a space provided by the universe as a (temporary) second home. Drift and float between them, as you build up an intuitive reserve that serves you well. Give yourself a makeover in whatever area needs a new image. Health concerns require setting up a system of diet/exercise that feeds ambition. Be healthy.

Aries  (March 21-April 19)
You can sit at the feet of the masters and absorb effective new skills. A system you have developed can be introduced to the marketplace. You can serve others as well as yourself by sharing unique techniques. Short trips add more data to the possibilities; but talk is cheap now, so screen out the white noise of others’ opinions. Ninety days brings new beginnings with new partners. Success depends on hard work.
