The monthly horoscope for May 2018 is presented for you based on the moon sign, i.e. janma rashi in your horoscope, based on the Vedic niryana system. Please do not substitute your Sun sign or a western astrology moon sign here. If you do not know your janma rashi, please refer to the kundali application on this page. 8th house presence for Chandra is called Chandrashtama and is a period of grave caution. These dates are indicated. The dates for caution on the financial matters are also indicated. People with a particular janma rashi should avoid dealing in financial matters on these dates, e.g. investment of property,the stock market, giving and taking loans should be avoided.
The planetary positions for the month of May 2018 are as follows:
Planets are located in such a way as to cause maximum vedha during the month to each other. May will be a difficult month for almost everyone. Even if positive dashas are going on, there can be obstacles for us.
Sun transits through inauspicious 1st and 2nd houses during the month. Saturn is going through an inauspicious 9th house transit. Mars is going through an inauspicious 10th house transit. Jupiter’s transit through the 7th house is favourable, but there is vedha of Venus in the 2nd half. Rahu is going through a 4th house transit. Ketu is going through an unfavourable 10th house transit. Venus will go through a favourable 2nd and then another favourable 3rd house transit, but both good results are blocked by vedhas, first by Jupiter and then by Mercury. Mercury is transiting through the 12th and 1st houses. Overall, May will be a less than average month for Aries borns.
Home, Family and Domestic Environment: Egotistical nature will be brought to the fore, with Sun in the 1st and 2nd house and Mars affecting the lagna from the 10th house. Overall Aries rashi persons will be in their brash element during the month. It is always good to be yourself once in a while, but do not overdo it. Take care of your friends and family and do not get competitive in your romantic relationships. Happiness at home may be interrupted by too much mentalation. You may keep a lot of secrets in the 1st half of the month and it can cause a misunderstanding with relatives around you. The 2nd half of the month is better for relationship building.
Travel: There are indications of travel in both parts of the month, but travel in the 2nd half will be more fruitful.
Health: Be careful with headaches and injuries to the head during the 1st part of the month. The 2nd part indicates fever, throat and eye problems.
Finance, Business & Job: There is too much focus on yourself during the month. This can cause problems with peers and superiors. You may get very competitive and anxious about how people are viewing you. There will be a burning desire to get ahead. Still, it is not the best time at work as your focus will be on and off. Financial problems with spouse as well as partners at the place of work are indicated. Be careful with loans and savings. A desire of heavy expenditure can burn through savings in the 2nd half of the month. During the same period, you will be vacillating in your opinions and thought-process and it may cause problems at the place of work, where your peers may not regard you as a reliable person to deal with. Students are hopefully enjoying their summer holidays, as the 2nd half of May is not good for studies and focusing on their subjects.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: During the month, you can be very selfish. Hence taking care of others will not come naturally to you. Those who know you well will be patient with you, but you can get into disputes with others, especially neighbours and not-so-close friends. If you want to sail through this month, do not be crafty with near and dear ones and do not take them for a ride. There is a lot of restlessness and anger in you that must be let out.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: There are unnecessary obstacles in an otherwise favourable month, and can be due to fear or the other extreme of dare. These tendencies affect the development of otherwise fruitful domestic relationships. Those who know you will love you even when you are throwing tantrums.

However, you can still work on career strategies, planning your move ahead as well as reskilling yourself. Do not make any rash decisions and try to plan ahead, as much as you can. Fear and inhibitions can throw a spanner in your plans of getting ahead. Meditate, take advice from others. These two actions will ensure that you are on your path forward, even if you stumble once or twice.
