This monthly astrology column will provide insights into your career and your business.

Astrology is a powerful tool for reflection. It’s helped me figure out my career and start a business. In this monthly column, I’ll show you how it can help you as well. It’s more than just your horoscope which is based off you sun sign. Astrology can tell you about the best jobs for you, how to make money, your strengths, challenges you’ll face and more. What’s the astrological forecast for this month?

We are still in eclipse season, aka getting what we need but may not want. Big lessons and transformations are happening. This month we’re focusing on how to create your own luck. You’ll be exploring these themes shared in your horoscopes from May 16, 2023 through May 25, 2024.

Traditionally, you can read for both your sun and rising. I prefer rising. As in, if your rising sign (ASC) is Cancer, read for that. I like to also read for my moon sign when I need extra insights into how I need to self-care and connect with my inner child.
