Astrologer TANYA OBREZA on what’s in the stars this month...
STAR OF THE MONTH
21 May - 21 June
This year others see you as being different - and you are. It seems like you’ve finally found the inspiration to make dreams come true. Your desire for freedom and new experiences is intense. You’re far more rebellious with a strong need to travel - or simply, escape the daily routine. Do it, if you can. It won’t be a lonely journey, as love beckons.
22 June - 22 July
Expect huge changes this month, Cancer. Mostly, in the area of relationships. If romance isn’t working too well, this may involve breakups. The good news? Secure partnerships will weather the storm, even
though you can still expect the odd rumble of thunder. Seems it’s singles that fare best right now. Love becomes wild, and impulsive.
23 July - 23 August
This month has a special mission: to show just how brave and capable you really are. While it’s often sensible to sit and sort things out before taking action, there aren’t too many reasons for caution at present. Even if there were, you’re fuelled with way too much enthusiasm to be held back. Give the world your best shot.
24 August - 22 September
Some months feel like too much of a chore. If you really can’t put one foot in front of the other, then do take some time to relax. There’ll plenty of time for work in July. It’s a month too, to let certain resentments drop, no matter what your convictions might be. The cosmos encourages compromise, so do yourself a favour - forgive and forget.
23 September - 23 October
Financial change sets the tone for June. So if recently left wondering what all the striving’s been for and where your quality time has disappeared, this month should restore your sense of achievement. Quality relationships assume greater importance and for many - the nights take on a more erotic theme.
24 October - 22 November
Thanks to the full moon on the 10th, you could pretty much run riot this month. Even then, other zodiac signs seem to get a bigger smack on the hand than you do. But you are challenged with one question: just how much effort are your dreams worth? When that snag appears, you’ll have to decide whether to give in, or rev up ambitions.
23 November - 21 December
Less ambitious zodiac neighbours would be intimidated by your current workload, but this is a time of success. Despite the pressure, you should meet every challenge. In contrast, late June should seem like an oasis of love and enjoyment. With carnal cravings on the rise, expect the tender touch of requited affection.
22 December - 20 January
Many find themselves butting heads with authority figures, but no matter the provocation - stay in control. Although that’s easier said than done - Capricorns don’t like being shaken nor stirred, so stay committed and your tenacity should bring about great results. But what you truly gain this month is the courage of your convictions - no apologies needed.
21 January - 18 February
Personal priorities are up for review, triggered by an unexpected event. What happens after depends solely on your reactions. Late June find you spring cleaning, which probably stems from a strong inner need to restructure your life. Emotional floodgates lifts, releasing passions which you thought had passed you by. Apparently, not so.
19 February - 20 March
Even if nothing extraordinary happens this month, there’s a definite upswing in your happiness. You're warmly loved, with any new romance looking to have a reassuringly long warranty. Couples also feel more settled. And should the planets encourage a little extra expenditure, why question the powers that be?
21 March - 20 April
At times, we all feel inspired to whisper our secret desires to the universe. Some wishes come true, others remain elusive. Whichever way, wishes are important missives - expressing our heart’s desire as well as our intention to create something new. So don’t be afraid to dream, Aries.
21 April - May 20
You’re now encouraged to look after your own interests. The fear of letting people down is often a strong incentive to carry on, but you must acknowledge that you’re only human, so give yourself a break. If necessary, pass the baton to someone else for a while. This is a month for catching up on life’s pleasures.
