Horoscopes for May 25 to May 31

By MARY MORRISON

CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)

Although you might feel secure in the knowledge that you have gained the upper hand, recently, you need to be discerning as to the company you keep and in whom you place your trust. The Moon’s aspect to Neptune (currently retrograde in the sign of Pisces) could have a disruptive effect on your plans for the coming week, particularly in the field of travel and communication.

LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)

Your imagination could run away with your sense of proportion if you are not careful, as the nebulous Neptune turns retrograde on Friday. Someone might try to put the wind up you by magnifying a slight problem and portraying it as a disaster. Hopefully you will be sensible enough to look at the facts, without relying on fiction, if you want to enjoy some peace of mind over the weekend.

VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)

One or two minor difficulties can make little difference in the grand scheme of things and, as long as you stick to your guns on Friday, you will be assured of success during the course of this coming week. Saturday is a day for celebrations when some good news is brought to your door. Monday’s Moon is in good aspect to Pluto, which is likely to give a boost to your income.

LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)

The Moon enters your sign on Saturday and moves to oppose the fiery planet Mars in the late afternoon. You are advised to turn the other cheek in order to avoid a show down which can be of no help in this instance. Your energy might be a little below par at present and you need to conserve your strength for Monday when it is imperative that you create the right impression. The moon’s conflict with Neptune is likely to lead you up the garden path on Wednesday and, before you know it, you might find yourself signing away your hard earned cash unless you keep your wits about you  

SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)

You might feel slightly irritated when you are presented with an idea, which to you seems totally impractical. However, in order to avoid hurting someone’s feelings, you will have to be diplomatic when you least feel like it. The Moon’s progress through the sign of Libra is likely to take you for a trip down memory lane on Sunday, which could work to your advantage.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)

Friday is likely to turn the last page of a chapter in your life, inviting you to step onto a new path. Of course, you might prefer to stick to your present direction and not diversify, depending on your status. The choice is yours and, whatever you decide, things will go well for you this week. The aspect between the Moon, Mercury and Pluto on Monday will bring out the best in you and impress others around you, particularly in business and property transactions.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)

Friday’s Moon, together with Neptune’s retrograde movement in your solar house of income and expenditure, might lead you to call a halt to your spending, at least for the time being. It might be prudent for you to take stock and look for ways in which you can cut costs. Monday is a good day to do some calculations, given the time and space to do so. Wednesday’s aspect between the Moon and your ruling planet, Saturn, is likely to induce you to withdraw from the hurly-burly of life’s merry-go-round.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

You might wonder at the strange behaviour of some members of your household when Neptune turns retrograde in your sign on Friday. Some confusion is likely to arise over travel plans, as well as misunderstandings in the field of communication. However, no doubt you will handle the scenario by letting it all go over your head and retaining you poise and dignity.

PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

Your ruling planet, Neptune, turns retrograde on Friday, which could bring the wheels of progress to a grinding halt. You might feel that the attitude of some leaves room for considerable improvement on Saturday afternoon but now is not the time to let off steam, as it will not be to your benefit. Sunday’s aspect between the Moon and Jupiter is likely to give you some breathing space to enable you to cool off and retrieve your good humour. 

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)

The Moon’s opposition to your ruling planet, Mars, could turn the tables and deal you all the aces. Now is the time to take a chance if you wish to change the status quo in your personal life. Neptune’s retrograde movement is likely to open your eyes to your current set of circumstances with a vision as to how you can shape your future. Your creativity is brought to the foreground on Monday when people will sit up and take notice of you.

TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)

Life might become a little topsy turvy from Friday onwards due to the retrograde motion of Neptune. The Moon’s aspect to Jupiter on Saturday, however, is likely to bring its compensations, particularly if you happen to be unattached. Monday’s Moon is favourable to Mercury, which will give you an opportunity to speak frankly on an important matter without causing offence.
