May 2017 chinese horoscope
Something you’ve desired may seem to slip through your fingers. A friend or acquaintance that agreed to help you may abruptly back off and stop returning your calls. You feel invisible at times today and wonder if you may have said or done anything to offend another. Wrap your mind around this truth: This month’s developments are not about personality traits or another’s lack of interest. Today’s events have one purpose – to shift your goals and aspirations in a slightly different direction. Consciously, deliberately reformulate what has meaning, value and necessity for you.
Your view of the world may be out of synch with your reality. At times, you feel abandoned at the bus stop. This month horoscopestrongly suggests that you reconsider some of the beliefs, habits and theories you’ve adhered to for years – particularly if you feel like you’re on the outside looking in. Instead of expecting others to validate you, validate yourself. Get started by making significant changes in your attitude and expectations. The disappointment you feel is caused by the wide divide between expectation and reality. Others cannot fix this for you.
There’s always a fascinating back-story to every breath you take and move you make. It’s never as simple or straightforward as you make it out to be. Wherever you go, intrigue is just half a block away. This month conjures up all sorts of behind-the-scenes plots and plans. Gems that are extremely busy without a moment to spare are less likely to get into mischief; but those of you with a little free time and a full tank of gas could push the envelope – in a fabulous way, of course. You realize that your trickster ways don’t always please certain tight-lipped friends or family members. That may explain why you have two separate groups of pals: bright-and-shiny socially acceptables as well as your favorite down-and-dirties.
Keep an open mind today. As new information and developments take shape, fold each new element into the mix without hesitation or doubt. Don’t get too attached to any one way of doing things. Right now, flexibility is key. Your priorities and the balance of power in a rather demanding relationship are likely to shift suddenly now – and again during the weeks to come. You find yourself thinking and dreaming about an idealized situation. This helps make unavoidable difficulties easier to bear. No matter what transpires, just keeping reminding yourself that all things are possible….
You present a professional visage to the world, even when you’re juggling too many people, tasks and schedules. Today you find yourself daydreaming about something impossible but desirable, like a vacation. You also wish that a friend or partner would stop talking about all the wonderful things he or she is going to do – and just DO it! You could use at least two or three extra pairs of capable hands to pick up the slack; but unfortunately, others seem to mean well but not be especially keen on making an effort. Count on yourself this month. Don’t delegate anything crucial. If you need something to be done right and on time, do it yourself.
You adopt a slightly rebellious attitude today, largely because you suspect that someone close to you isn’t playing by the rules – so why should you? This line of thinking can only take you so far and usually backfires. Even if a pal or partner is being less than admirable, you need to remember what really matters and what you want out of life. Reacting to another’s mistakes or problems has been an exhausting and losing battle in the past. Don’t fall into that trap this month. The game of tit-for-tat is time consuming and in some cases, has made you feel sick inside. Move forward with your life, Snake, no matter what another says or does.
Your hopes and dreams of an ideal scenario may seem less likely due to today’s developments. Don’t give up. Don’t create unnecessary drama or trauma. How you handle changing circumstances is just as important as the actual events. No matter what last minute changes or disagreements occur, remember what the big picture is – and do what you can to keep it alive. Avoid spats and bitter gotcha games. Others may appear to provoke you, but probably have no intention of doing so. Move past your own fear and insecurity – and calm your nerves. You have a better chance of making things work by approaching each issue with serenity.
You can’t be all things to all people today, so choose your battles and keep things as simple as possible. A confusing situation continues to simmer in the background and may remain unresolved or unfinished for the time being. Just pace yourself and remember that things will evolve at the proper rate, even if it’s not the schedule that others had in mind. Over the years, you’ve learned time and again, that delays can be protective. Any delay that occurs today through the weekend is most likely a cosmic safety valve. Eventually, you’ll be glad that things played out the way they did.
You may need to slow down and organize your thoughts before speaking or writing this month. What seems so clear and obvious to you may sound pretty garbled to others. Communication about a work or property matter is especially hit or miss, so make use of a classic remedial communication tool: Make a statement and listen carefully to the response. Then say, “What I heard you say is….” Keep doing this until you get it right. Don’t allow impatience or frustration to interfere. Since you’re apt to be a touch forgetful, take notes and wear a functioning watch. You might also lose track of time….
There is no need to spend money in order to prove your love and affection today. There is also no need to yield to another’s demands for money or items of value. Go out of your way to keep cash separate from close ties. It won’t be easy for a lot a reasons. For starters, you may be in the habit of expressing your appreciation, gratitude or love with money or gifts. And others may have grown accustomed to this kind of thing. Break the chain this month because money and friendship or love won’t coexist peacefully at this time. Loaning a friend anything (even advice) will create residual problems.
Concerns about family members continue today. Instead of receiving clear-cut answers to your direct questions, you hear about “probabilities.” When you reach out for solid response, you get doubletalk that seems to generate more questions than answers. This month is unlikely to clarify much of anything, so instead of pursuing something so elusive, look inside. Your intuition already has a pretty good sense of what’s in store. Shut out noise and other external disturbances and be an open channel. Allow spiritual wisdom in, and honor your own remarkable intuition. That’s how to get the truth and answers you’re seeking.
You feel as if you’re picking up two radio signals at the same time this month. You hear what someone says but your intuition says something quite different. This occurs simultaneously and could leave you both nodding and shaking your head in amazement. Don’t doubt your intuition, Pigs, no matter what another says. At the same time, don’t confront others or suggest that they’re not being honest. Just listen, think and process. This month’s developments will help you make important decisions about your personal and professional interests. You’re under no obligation to reveal your thoughts until you’re good and ready – and that won’t be this month.
