How to calculate your number

Begin with your date of birth.

Reduce the date to a single digit, if you’re born on a double-digit date, by adding the digits involved. For example: If you’re born on the 12th of a month, your number is 1 + 2 = 3.


The coming two months are expected to be stable but not transformative. You’re likely to be more patient and accommodating in matters of the heart. You may spend money on luxury items, leisure activities and self-care and may also be generous. Venus will help you focus your energy and maintain a calm disposition. Allocate time to your loved ones and burst out of your prickly-pear personality. The first half of May is a good time for those interested in purchasing a vehicle, property or gadget, but be wary of impulsive buying after May 20.


In this emotionally fragile May, you’ll understand people and situations better, though you may find yourself following your heart rather than your rationale. June could be better on the emotional front, and you may see positive changes in your romantic life. Those in talent-fuelled industries like film, theatre, media, fashion and arts may thrive due to the combined influence of the Moon and Venus, a pair most ideal for creativity. It’s the opportune period to work with utmost effort as you’ll find yourself most motivated.


May and June look promising for No. 3s, with contentment likely to be achieved in both personal and professional areas, provided you continue to put in the hard work. Your practical approach and analytical thinking will bring gains, but avoid overworking; strive for balance. Financially, matters should be secure with savings on the rise due to reduced expenses. New relationships will prosper, and even strained ones may find the light at the end of the tunnel. You may feel lonely at times, but you’ll find solace in solidarity.


May and June promise opportunities of fortune and success, but you should be cautious of people with ulterior motives. You may surprise others with your intuition, but not everyone may smile at your success. You have a taste for extravagance, but don’t let it derail you from your work. Balance your time between pleasure and profession. Finding love is a possibility for those seeking it. Avoid overthinking and be mindful.


After a lacklustre April, May comes with the promise of opportunities for growth in various aspects, followed by an even better June. Both financially and romantically, you’re likely to prosper. But remember that shadows are cast only where there’s a source of light. So avoid gambling and mistreating loved ones. A change of residence or an increment at work may prevent you from taking a break, but do take some time out for yourself. Unexpected gains are possible, and generosity will be rewarded with more abundance.


May is a great time to work hard and regain any lost ground. This Taurus-ruled period is going to be beneficial, sowing the seeds of labour for an even better 2023. The financial situation looks promising, but exercise caution against overspending. It’s a good time to make strides in career or relationships. A relaxed attitude towards planning and taking breaks is encouraged to maintain momentum. Overall, May and June offer the chance to inspire others with creative work.


You may face some challenges on both the professional and personal fronts, but stay positive and await a break in the clouds. Remember that this is your favourable year, so stay resilient. Beautiful illusions may not lead to real rewards, so work hard to earn them. If you’re single, you may find companionship unexpectedly, though be mindful of how you present yourself. Keep a low profile in an overbearing world of attention. Life may feel fast-paced, so try to relax and roll with the punches.


One of your most favourable periods of the year is here. May-June is the ideal time for you to officialise relationships, contracts or both. This period could introduce you to not only recognition and advancement in your career but also that long overdue promotion. An optimistic, free-spirited approach is certain to lead to further expansion. You may find support from family and colleagues if your intentions are clear.


This month on, you may begin to pave the path for a more exciting rest of the year. Your impulsive nature could be subdued by grace and patience. If you’re considering a job change, do so by May 20. This could be the perfect time to seize a lucrative opportunity. The second half of May till June 20 is not your best period. Practice mindfulness and consciousness. It’s the best time to start yoga, pranayama, or meditation. This period could also lead to a fanatical religious devotion and a deeper understanding of your true self.
