Your Monthly Horoscope for May 2020
Zodiac in Translation: Notes for Quarantine

For consultation or more information please find Shari at her website:
Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries or Aries Rising: March 21– April 19
Aries, there will be a great deal of attention paid to essentials this month—food, comfort and pleasure. The poet Rainer Maria Rilke often focused on the act of seeing and encouraged appreciation often lost when we are in our daily routines. We are, in whatever situation we find ourselves, in a global pause. And, during this pause, what would you like to see, feel, do and touch that takes time. Rilke says that it takes time to see. What would it take for you to find more beauty in the quiet unfolding of the present? Who do you blame when you can’t see what is beautiful? Where would you like to focus this month? What sits waiting, right outside the threshold of your front door?
Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus or Taurus Rising: April 20 – May 20
Taurus, recently I worked with a client who, in many ways, needed permission to nurture herself. It seemed that for her the comforts of a long bath, a massage, a morning smoothie, and an hour or two of reading for pleasure all felt indulgent. This month, what if we changed the word indulgent to the word fulfillment. Just a simple turn of the thesaurus builds a different perspective on what it means to fulfill ones needs. This is your month to be so very kind to yourself, asking of your body what it would like and what it would need to feel secure, especially in a time of great insecurity and unknowing. You get to deliver a small slice of happiness to yourself. How wonderfully nutritious this can feel. I want to hug you just thinking about it!
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini or Gemini Rising: May 21 – June 21
Gemini, I’ve been dreaming about tigers lately. Various interpretations of dream-tigers say that I might be experiencing a surge of instinct about my own survival. Tigers often bring us face to face with ego, desire, even fear. How do we stay in our power? How do we stay present when we are faced with our own survival? Animals may show up for us, in dream or daydream to deliver messages. Messages from the natural world come to greet you this month, even to help you feel the earth as a solid base underfoot. Pay attention to the bird through a window, an opening of a flower, the changing of light, the sundial of time as the day passes. Stay curious. Ask for help. Allow your intuition to work for the benefit of your health and well-being.
Cancer Astrological Symbol
Cancer or Cancer Rising: June 22 – July 22
Cancer, you may be missing real-time social engagements, dinner with friends, restaurant life, grocery store conversation—street hub-bub. Community engagement feels important and essential to your well-being, and yet the physical interaction with strangers and friends continues to be challenged. My hope for you during this global pause is that you redefine what community means to you. What has worked in the past? Which network of friends feel most valuable? When life feels more fluid again, how would you like to re-engage with the world? In examining your network, you may get the rare opportunity to discern what must stay and what must go, indeed who must stay and who must go.
Leo Astrological Sign
Leo or Leo Rising: July 23 – August 22
Leo, the indomitable Julia child said this: “You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients. Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it. The only real stumbling block is fear of failure.” There perhaps has never been a more apropos time for you to seed a particular passion, especially since the key ingredient in working with a passion is time itself. What are you dreaming, scheming, trying, practicing, longing for, and ready to incorporate into your life? The fear of failure shows up in everyone, and is definitely not an excuse anymore. What do they say about practicing a thing one thousand times before mastering it? Well, get to it my dear. Keep practicing, keep dreaming, indeed this particular passion is your path, purpose and north star.
Virgo Astrological Symbol
Virgo or Virgo Rising: August 23 – September 22
Virgo, we love your mind. I know, there are many times it trips you up, demands precision, yearns for organization, longs to be of service. So many Virgo’s have come to me to work on their inner conversations. I am often shocked at how little kindness they offer themselves when they are so whole-heartedly giving such empowered words to others. We often work together on finding that place where the Virgo can accept the messiness of being human. Self-love emerges when we forgive ourselves for not being perfect. I challenge you this month to take inventory of what you tell yourself, come to this experiment with a grand dose of love. Deliver to yourself, what you deliver to others.
libra Astrological Symbol
Libra or Libra Rising: September 23 – October 22
Libra, finding security in a time of insecurity isn’t easy. Part-time philosopher and counterculture writer, Alan Watts wrote an entire book about what he terms, the Wisdom of Insecurity. He goes so far as to say that the way to deal with insecurity or change is to “plunge into it, move with, and join the dance.” Sound scary? Yes, it does to me too. I would like to challenge you though, this month, to find an opportunity to dance with the unknown. You may take very small steps. Consider meeting mystery with curiosity, and eventually with an openness to learning the lessons that might be present. You may even enjoy sharing this challenge with a significant other, let them in on your fears, allow them a chance at sharing a significant growth spurt.
Scorpio Astrological Sign
Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: October 23 – November 21
Scorpio, there is this idea that when a new person enters our lives, they show up to help us see a part of ourselves that, well, needs seeing. We are seekers of relationship, but I think we have so little understanding, even in the modern world, of the purpose of a particular relationship. Are they meant to be partner, lover, friend, mentor—collaborator? Am I thinking big enough to learn the reason they are here for me? What would it be like to offer a relationship in your life a wider berth? What would it be like to come to the table with forgiveness rather than blame? There is a real opportunity this month to get to the underpinning of love and connection. Take the deep dive that only you, Pluto-blessed, know how to do.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign
Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: November 22 – December 21
Sagittarius, are you finding that even in the time of global pause, you are working as hard as ever? The key component for this month will be the care and well-being of your body as you may feel some pressure to perform. Luxurious care-taking may feel counter intuitive but I tell you it is not. This is exactly what you need. Considering your body and health will keep you on your toes and will do wonders for your mental acuity. You are one of the signs of the Zodiac that look to the horizon. You generally take the long view. We need your perspective dear Archer, and sharp bearer of truth.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: December 22 - January 19
Capricorn, they say Emily Dickinson rarely left her house the last 15 or so years of her life After her death, her sister Lavinia discovered hundreds of poems, Dickinson’s life’s work, tucked inside a bureau drawer. Dickinson was an observer of both physical and human nature, much of her poetry expressing her relationship to divine wonder. One of her poems delivers a message to the world: “This is my letter to the world that never wrote to me—the simple news that nature told—with tender majesty. Her message is committed to hands I cannot see—for love of her sweet countrymen—judge tenderly of me.” The calling this month for you is to consider nature your inspiration and the well spring of your creative drive. Simply, have patience, consider the mundane a place where real magic percolates.
Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: January 20 – February 18
Aquarius, surprisingly there may be an odd excitement in being homebound. As the true hummingbird you are, obviously you don’t necessarily enjoy restraint, or constraint. Your beautiful beating heart is a kaleidoscope of color. But homebound you are and ready for the challenge of coloring your environs with beauty, excitement and pleasure. I think the old concept of genius loci or spirit of a place feels very apropos for you. Because of your electric nature, you are continually infusing your environment with spirit and soul. Take some of that electricity and infuse your space with sparkle. Make your home the exact mirror of your nature. A friend told me recently that as you bond with your home it will come up to meet and support you.
Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces or Pisces Rising: February 19 – March 20
Pisces, I’ve recently been thinking that communication between humans is as varying as stations on a radio dial. Finding an individual channel, is finding how a particular person likes to communicate. What kind of communicator are you? What do you need to connect to another human? What do you value? Is it easier to communicate with animals than humans? Are words necessary? This month you’ll be thinking about how to find mutual support and understanding in a time when the whole world is learning new ways to connect. Old patterns may arise. If you could give your communication-style a music genre, what would it be? If you could sing your way into the heart of another, what song would you choose? If your body language was enough what would your body say? Give yourself the gift of letting another know what you need to develop a smooth and clear channel for optimum understanding?
