1. Tiger

1902 1914 1926 1938 1950 1962 1974 1986 1998 2010 2022

Left to your own devices, your productivity may take a dip this month. As our energy level fluctuates throughout time, it’s not unexpected to have some downtime every now and then. Missing an opportunity or two won’t define your whole year. Take the challenges with stride and grace. If you perform well now, you definitely can perform a lot better in the future.

2. Rabbit

1903 1915 1927 1939 1951 1963 1975 1987 1999 2011

This month, your financial luck is looking to be relatively smooth. Even so, it’s not something you should be taking for granted. In fact, all the more reason for you to come up with a proper plan to maximise whatever wealth opportunity you’ll find this month. Put in the due diligence, look up available options and diversify your knowledge. Make the best out of this.

3. Dragon

1904 1916 1928 1940 1952 1964 1976 1988 2000 2012

Improvements can be seen in your life this month, particularly where work is concerned. You could expect a more relaxed environment with lesser workload to handle. Besides that, it’s also a good month for love. If you’re eyeing a relationship with a certain someone and wanted to look for the right opportunity to be honest about how you feel, this is it. Go for it.

4. Snake

1905 1917 1929 1941 1953 1965 1977 1989 2001 2013

Good times don’t last forever; you may be experiencing some form of decline this month. As progress becomes slow and stress gradually builds up, it’s recommended for you to take things easy. Doing more doesn’t always translate to an increase in productivity. Taking care of your own physical and mental well-being is also part of optimising your workflow.

5. Horse

1906 1918 1930 1942 1954 1966 1978 1990 2002 2014

If you played your cards right, you might have some extra cash on hand this month. However, this may also be paired with an increased desire to spend. Keep in mind that just because you are able to doesn’t mean you should. While it won’t necessarily result in some drawback in terms of your finances, try not to make this a habit and practise some self-control.

6. Goat

1907 1919 1931 1943 1955 1967 1979 1991 2003 2015

In all likelihood, fortune may not be on your side for the time being. Your personal and professional relationships might be put to the test this month as issues are likely to crop up. If you’re not careful in handling these problems, it may result in your mental health being affected negatively. In dealing with conflicts, try to be more calm, collected and diplomatic where possible.

7. Monkey

1908 1920 1932 1944 1956 1968 1980 1992 2004 2016

The month of May brings several challenges to your door- particularly in the arena of work. Coming your way will be an increased workload and pressure, from both superiors and colleagues. However, know that this is temporary. So keep your focus and persevere. Your efforts will be justly rewarded.

8. Rooster

1909 1921 1933 1945 1957 1969 1981 1993 2005 2017

If you’ve been sitting on some big plans, this month is when you should put them into action. Roosters who act this month can expect plenty of support from both friends and colleagues. So seize this opportunity and take the first step towards your long-held dreams.

9. Dog

1910 1922 1934 1946 1958 1970 1982 1994 2006 2018

For you, May will be a month of change. Be it career, studies or finances, you’ll feel a timely need to re-evaluate some of the key areas of your life. To ensure it’s a change for the better, resist the temptation to rush headlong into a new direction. Instead, take some time to research all the options available to you before making the leap.

10. Pig

1911 1923 1935 1947 1959 1971 1983 1995 2007 2019

This month, you may find yourself struggling with your temper. Symptoms to watch out for include starting arguments over trivial matters and reacting badly when somebody merely disagrees with you. Instead of stewing in such negative emotions, channel this energy into more productive avenues such as exercise and brainstorming. You’ll soon find your emotions spiralling upward instead.

11. Rat

1912 1924 1936 1948 1960 1972 1984 1996 2008 2020

You’ll want to play it safe this month. Avoid speculative activities such as high-risk investing and gambling, as it’s likely that you’ll lose more than you gain. Instead, count your blessings, make a list of your sources of income and start developing a solid long-term plan for financial growth.

12. Ox

1913 1925 1937 1949 1961 1973 1985 1997 2009 2021

You can look forward to some pleasant surprises this month. Expect old friends to come calling as well as new improvements in your finances. While the two are not necessarily related, the bonds of trust formed between old friends may provide fertile fields for partnerships and joint ventures.
