🌸 May 2018 Horoscopes 🌸
This month, the Sun travels from Taurus to Gemini, creating a buzz in mid-month and stirring the world back to life. However, Mercury AND Uranus also enter Taurus mid-month, creating an actual sense of (ahem) “stable” genius or rather, stubborn adherence to one’s own wacky ideas, especially as Mars enters into Aquarius, giving more steam to unconventional, sudden, and shocking behavior. The good news is that Venus stays in Gemini until the 20th, and lightens things up and encourages otherwise stubborn parties to reach across the table. When it moves into Cancer, it helps makes that reach into a hug (or defensive swipe, but let’s be optimistic).
♈ Aries: The frustrations of the previous month start to give way to optimism and more of a sense of assuredness. Granted, you thrive in chaos better than most, and going at things alone if you must never bothers you. This will give you a chance to figure out what is really important to you, especially since you may lose something you never thought could be lost and gain something you never thought you could gain.
♉ Taurus: You may think you’re losing your mind, especially since the world you take for granted seems to be changing quickly, and now you have to put forth the effort to either reinvent yourself or reestablish your place in the order. Tauruses graduating this month know exactly what I’m talking about, but you’re all getting kicked out of the nest and must use your many resources to figure out where you’ll land.
♊ Gemini: You may not feel as sharp as usual, though everyone around you will probably work around any foggy days you have since you’re just that cute. This may not be satisfying, however, if you’ve been restless for change and to find more authentic ways of thinking and relating to others. You may suddenly break away from something without forethought, though afterward, it feels like the right thing to do, so you just do it.
♋ Cancer: There are a lot of changes afoot, particularly on the inside. You may find yourself questioning or running away from your commitments, as if they suddenly feel like shoes that are too tight, and that the people around you aren’t as approving as you’d like them to be. However, what you’re running to is probably something more humanitarian and in line with your actual dreams, the ones no one can talk you out of.
♌ Leo: This month may see sudden changes to your career. Firing or downsizing could happen, but also something that just suddenly makes you realize you don’t like what you’re doing, and you want something different…right now. You may find encouragement from your partner or from more daring individuals in your life. One may be especially encouraging of you throwing caution to the wind. Careful not to fall in love with that bad-boy or bad-girl; it may not last long.
♍ Virgo: This is your month to shine, and if you feel invigorated or liberated, then don’t be ashamed. You’re strong when others are weak this month, and you have a tremendous, almost super-human capacity to get. shit. done. this month…and you really don’t want anyone else getting in your way. However, this is a good time for you to follow your own path and hope to meet fellow travelers on the way.
♎ Libra: You don’t really have it easy this month, but your playfulness and creativity are unmatched. You’re in the mood for love, and may even crush on someone new (even if you’re already with someone), though you also may want to get more serious about other endeavors. Something is coming to come to an end for good, and you will have to move on; it may be out of your control, or from your unconscious mind.
♏ Scorpio: If there were ever a time when Scorpio actually didn’t want to get closer to people, it’s this month as Uranus moves into Taurus. You want to break the mold and reestablish your individuality and meet people as equals in new ways. It’s important for you to be able to move freely to feel secure or else you’ll suffocate. Your goal this month is to wipe the slate clean and look toward the future.
♐ Sagittarius: You may have to work very hard now. It’s important for you to not screw things up in your relationships this month but to also speak the truth. It may come out suddenly, bluntly, and not too kindly. You’ll probably become intimately familiar with the taste of your own foot. However, it needs to be done, especially if you’re been putting on appearances for the sake of maintaining a routine or stability.
♑ Capricorn: This is a month of unexpected, hopefully pleasant, change. Someone fun, but odd, and possibly a little dangerous may come into your life. Of course, that may be your own Tyler Durden; your high hopes for the future and desires for the present are precious but subject to change, and probably not because of your doing. Learning to let go of your ideas of how things should be will help you see opportunities.
♒ Aquarius: You will have renewed vigor this month, and you dare anyone get in your way. You want to take it all on; something triggers you this month, making you realize that if you want change, you have to change at your very root. It’s time to dig in the dirt and see what is there. Old memories may come back, surprising you and throwing you off kilter. Yet, they are truly all yours.
♓ Pisces: Your idealism is at an all-time high or rather, all-time unrealistic factor. It may be difficult to focus on real things, but your ability to perceive possibilities is at a high. You don’t think you’re very competitive, but others see you that way, meaning you may simply float along into winning. Don’t look a gift-horse in the mouth: if you win, just accept it and blow kisses to your friends and family in the crowd.
