A desire for other things?
The first week looking rather morose? Venus will be skulking in the shadow of your sign until the 7th, encouraging you to reflect, rather than taking action, friend Cancer, and maybe meditate and go over the past to learn a few lessons! From the 7th, this delightful planet will move into your sign and should then boost your appetites and libido, along with your desire to lift your feelings to a higher level, or at least make your (current or future) love-life less ordinary! The social context won't necessarily help you feel blissfully optimistic, but you should benefit from wonderful inspiration and heartfelt enthusiasm on the 16th, which could enhance your existence and improve your relationship!
You will make the most of this short romantic interlude to escape from a rather depressing daily grind and your material concerns, which will often have a tendency to eat into your time, as well as a lack of energy from the 12th, when Mars will intervene to activate sly criticisms and rumours about you, which will unfortunately distract you from your romantic aspirations! Under the pressure of outside events which will probably have more of an effect on your social life than your private affairs, you could end up thinking too much, not to say chewing things over and ignoring the current state of your emotions, which will be far from neutral! Try as far as possible then not to allow your financial or work concerns to weigh too heavily on your home-life, friend Cancer, or this could upset communication with your partner, who could suffer from your apparent disinterest! Especially as you will certainly need support and backing throughout a month that will test your resilience in the face of conflict and your ability in particular to endure an increasingly heavy workload, greater responsibilities and in some cases, reduced energy levels and morale!
Try to stay calm in all circumstances in May, when you won't have the leisure of being able to do as you please. You could find yourself in a difficult position with regard to those lying in wait, who will give you something of a headache! To avoid blows below the belt, or at least try to get the pressure around you into perspective, make sure you look after your private life, avoiding in particular venting your frustration at home, where your ostensibly aggressive and changeable moods won't go down very well! Better to end the month with things in abeyance, while you play down your doubts and current gloomy state of mind, in preparation for rising again from the ashes in June, friend Cancer, when spring will finally return … And not before time!
1st decan (21st June – 1st July): Letting things go!
Since last December, you have had to put up with pressure from Saturn, who has had something of a tendency (or more) to drag down your everyday life! If you are in a relationship, try to not to bring your work concerns home, if you want to avoid sulky moods and tension! You would do better to escape (in your dreams for the moment) with your other half, rather than make him/her bear the burden of your doubts and anxieties, which should lighten in June! In the meantime, take a step back from outside the home concerns to look after your private life! If you are single, you will aspire to love and be loved, but will feel rather overwhelmed by your demanding everyday existence and criticisms you feel are totally unjustified. To get through this inclement month without too many obstacles, it would be better to take a step back at work to devote time to your inner self, maybe formulating what appeals to you in your love-life and what you will probably soon achieve!
2nd decan (2nd – 12th July): Other priorities?
Reconsidering things (and that didn't start yesterday) will probably affect your world at work, piling on the pressure and in some cases, making you walk the tightrope! So where will love fit in here? If you are in a relationship, it will continue to evolve and follow the transformations you want to implement on a personal level. Make sure, however, you don't exert too much pressure (and with risks) on your other half, who won't necessarily follow you unreservedly, especially around the 22nd and 25th, when you would do well to measure what you say and do. You are loved without a doubt, but this isn't a reason for abusing your seductive powers! If you single, you will have been fighting for quite some time to get things moving, speeding up the necessary changes and your own metamorphosis. Try to get your message across as smoothly as possible, because if you feel tempted by someone, you can't be sure they will understand and still less that they will put up with your potentially extravagant behaviour. To be popular, you will need to be tactful and take time over exercising your charms!
3rd decan (13th – 22nd July): You will take love seriously!
You will be relatively able to dodge the flak in May (apart from tendencies in your own personal chart, of course), when the inclement weather will appear to focus on the first two decans. However … if you are in a relationship, you will give full rein to your dreams and aspire to closer togetherness and depth? This summer, you will have to contend with Saturn, who will help you look more deeply into the subject (especially if you were born after 19th July), but you will now feel the greater weight of your emotional responsibilities more than the dizzying spiral of love! If you are single, while the month's priorities will seem to be given to your plans (at least until 12th May), you will probably find it hard to realise your dreams. Even though your charm will be in operation (between 26th June and 5th July), your mind and heart will probably be elsewhere!
My advice if you are in the northern hemisphere:
A month when taking a step back, and why not in your partner's arms or in your dreams, will lead you to a better state of mind or being until June, which will finally promise you nothing but the best!
My advice if you are in the southern hemisphere:
Don't take every remark as a criticism. This would be a mistake that could lead you to make claims that are too strong and unattainable, even for your partner. Keeping things simple is a much better idea!
