Taureans like fashion model, TV star and all-round celebrity, Gigi Hadid. Taureans always do best when they stick to the established script, working from their strengths. Success comes in spades in May if you guarantee stability when everyone else is cracking up!
IT’S A CHALLENGING MONTH FOR:
Scorpios such as Kendall Jenner, runway model, fashion designer and member of the world-conquering Reality-TV dynasty, the Kardashians. May is a month for Scorpios to take the back seat, hanging on to their secrets and keeping their powder dry until planetary pressures ease in June.
FOR ALL SIGNS:
Will there ever come a time when the world slows down and normality returns? Sometimes it seems like chaos actually is the new normal. The top survival plan this month is to fly below the radar, steering clear of emotional upheavals, and hanging on to everything that’s familiar.

TAURUS (Apr 21 - May 21)
Your solar chart is blessed with a massive influx of Martian magic which, in plain language, means that your energy levels are hitting a new high. All you need to do is pace yourself, balancing hard work with extra rest and relaxation. Otherwise you’ll end up bang on your back and of no use to anyone – least of all yourself. An ambitious romantic cycle kicks off on the 8th, and you’ll be putting pressure on partners to do their best. You may even accept invitations which you would once have turned down flat.
It’s a strange but enjoyable month in many ways. Your celestial gears switch into reverse and you may have to accept a number of delays – but make the most of extra time. You should positively relish the chance to meet up with old friends or link up with a former lover, and a sentimental journey might revive fond memories. The New Moon on the 25th is a particularly special one and all your plans for the future will soon be back on track. A surprise offer of assistance provides the icing on the cake.
All your planets shout about the need for total freedom and unlimited independence. There is no alternative! Close friends or partners may, though, be easy to provoke and generally impatient. So, what can you do? Well, for a start, you can check out the reasons why they should be feeling so tense. And then you can offer constructive support, encouraging them to go all out to achieve their goals. Follow such a selfless and saintly path and you should soon begin to see the pay-off.
Someone, somewhere, is thinking of you. That’s all you need to know. You may still be feeling a little uncertain, perhaps unsure whether a partner’s feelings are genuine. You might not even be convinced that you should stick around forever. But the planetary pressure levels have dropped dramatically, and you should be able to make the most of the opportunities and advantages which are building up in the background. If you keep your cool, you’ll emerge much more mature and infinitely more experienced.
A fabulous group of planets is firmly on your side as the month begins. One confers charm, another gives you energy and a third endows you with an unfailing ability to pick the most proper and practical proposals. In other words, you can’t go wrong – in theory. But pressures will build up after the 21st, and you may be surrounded by people who are increasingly ready to find fault. You can leave such awkward individuals to their own devices, and only get involved on terms that you choose.
Mars, the planet which presides over your energy levels, is urging you to take a businesslike approach. You’ll be counting your cash, dealing with practical details, pursuing your plans one careful step at a time, and eventually making a wish come true. You’ll also be coping perfectly with personal ambitions, and you may be pleasantly surprised when forgotten hopes are unexpectedly fulfilled. Intimate desires should intensify, fuelled by unexpected events after the 21st.
You can be a little too hard on yourself. And the fact that you know it doesn’t always make it any easier. Relief arrives after Venus alters its position on the 12th, and in no time you’ll be back to the old, confident you. You’ll also be showing a softer face to people who might have been offended by your high standards and harsh judgements. Fresh-faced and friendly lunar alignments climax at the New Moon on the 25th, and you will soon be able to set off on a new social scheme.
You’re still waiting for the final prize, and you may wonder whether the ultimate triumph has been snatched from your grasp. Not so! You are being given extra time to settle the past and prepare proper plans for the future. You will link up with a valued friend or partner after the 8th, and be taking overdue decisions – perhaps because you’ve now got a much better grasp of the facts. An unwanted burden will be abandoned and you should soon regain your long-lost freedom.
You may appreciate Mars’ magnificent position, and push ahead with all the power at your disposal. Lift your sights from day-to-day matters just for a moment, and look at the long-term picture. If you’re in tune with the times, then you may see that current restrictions can’t last forever. A long-distance journey is a distinct possibility after the 15th, but the voyage you embark on may be one of the spirit, emotions or ideas, as much as of the body.
Uranus’ extraordinary location in your solar chart reinforces your need for freedom and independence. Are you ready to sail off on your own, regardless of what other people think? The simple answer is ‘yes’, but life is never that simple. It’s all changed, now that magnetic Mars and serious Saturn have teamed up. If your plans are to work, then you’ll have to deal with the practical details after the 21st. Otherwise you’ll be back to square one in no time.
If there’s anything that you can rely on at the moment, it’s that confusion will continue – but that your hopes are especially inspired. A sense that disorder might break out at any minute could actually appeal to the secret anarchist inside you. But you might take a decisive step to involvement in a community, neighbourhood or political activity after the 15th. Happily, a romantic attraction may be reaffirmed around the 20th-22nd. You may even discover that you were right about a partner’s feelings all along!
They say time-travel is impossible, but you still have a strange feeling that you’ve been here before. And in a sense you have. You’re being given a second chance to seize an opportunity and make up for recent mistakes. Plus, your more spectacular schemes may be put on hold, at least just for now. Your mood will noticeably improve after the 21st. In fact, you can expect new and colourful people to wander into your life. Be sure to make the most of extraordinary social offers.
