Well, it’s May. And, I know that we say this literally every single month, but, I feel justified in saying this once more: Where, exactly, did the last month go? It’s hard to say! It could be anywhere! Time moves so fast at this time of year that it feels like each month runs into the next before you even really have time to acknowledge that it’s really here, you know?
But that is enough discourse about the passage of time! Time moves on no matter what we do, or how much we choose to complain about it, so it is important to start looking ahead instead. And, of course the best way to do that (in our opinion) is to go by the stars. Or, to be more exact, by going by your horoscope. So, check ouy your horoscope for this month and see what the ~stars~ have in store for you:
Taurus (April 21-May 21)
May is your time to shine. Being you will get you everywhere. You have a nose for luxury at an affordable price, so this month reaps some great rewards. Get out there and hunt for what you love. Treat yourself to things that make you feel pretty. Eat fancy food and lounge as much as possible. Purge your closet of the old outworn and invite in some fine new clothes that make you feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. You are a wonderful example of true contentment when you follow your wise loving heart. Your ability to commit is admirable.
Gemini (May 22-June 21)
Rest up in May, Lady Gemini–next month is non-stop. You are an electric spirit with a crazy busy mind. You can burn out with things like insomnia and anxiety when you don’t take the time to be still and focus on simple things. Fresh air and your bare feet on the ground will help slow down your system so you can relax. This month will help you sit still so you can get those brilliant thoughts of yours out into the world. Don’t waste your talent just because you can’t get yourself to sit still. It would be a shame to deprive us of your clever wit.
Cancer (June 22-July 23)
This is a wonderfully rejuvenating time for you. Peace should be easy with all the freshness in the air. Stay close to home to really fluff up your nest. Clean out closets to release the past. Learn a little about Feng Shui to really get the magic moving in your life. You are a natural at the Chinese are of placement because you are so tuned into your environment. Next month the pace picks up so rest up now. Treat yourself to hot baths and nourishing foods. You deserve some mothering too, you sensitive soul.
Leo (July 24-August 23)
You are a powerfully warm and encouraging leader. Use this month to give yourself what you need to be happy. Play and rest should be top priority. You have a gift that needs to shine. When you let yourself glow, you give others an example to follow. You are a gift: You being You. You are just what the world needs. You may have to overcome the fear of failure and get out of your own way to achieve your destiny. Don’t give up, it’s worth every effort. Your need for lazy fun needs to be monitored so you can accomplish what you came here to do. Be the boss.
Virgo (August 24-September 23)
May is the perfect month for you to relax. For real. Like actual relaxing, not organizing, or cleaning, or fixing things up. You are a natural flaw-finder which keeps you going forever if you are not careful. Take the time to carefully create delicious dishes. Pamper yourself with long soaks in fragrant baths. Be still, breathe deep. Indulge in books that inspire you. Write in your journal- you have a way with words. Don’t stop yourself before you start. Nothing will ever be perfect.
Libra (September 24-October 23)
Libra this is a wonderful month for you to get things done–especially tasks that take time and patience. You will have an eye for all the beautiful details. Big beautiful purchases are likely to please you for years. Peace should be easily attainable this month, aim for it. Let peace and love be your highest priority. Balance is beautiful. Take time to consult yourself first—it’s too easy for you to defer what you want to make others happy–this won’t cut it in the long run. We each are here to be ourselves. Let yourself be the priority.
Scorpio (October 24-November 22)
Dear Scorpio, now is your chance to take a break. Your regular intensity can be exhausting to you. Feeling so much all the time is tough work. This month you can take time to appreciate the simple things, smell the flowers, feel the sun. Learn to cook something nourishing. Soothe yourself with new routines. Enjoy connecting with others over small pleasures, connect from the heart and listen carefully. Love and be loved. Life is beautiful and sweet if you can take the time for the simple things.
Sagittarius (November 23-December 22)
Get out and mingle this month. You are ready for adventure and are likely to meet someone that can show you the ropes. Be careful you do not say something offensive by just being your honest self. Now is not the time to tell it like it is. This time, focus on harmony—the truth can be told another time. Hold your tongue for now, but not forever. Your gift for gab is truly remarkable. Ask great questions- show your interest in others. Don’t be the only one talking–others have good ideas too. Open your heart and mind.
Capricorn (December 23-January 20)
May is uber-productive for you. Isn’t that exciting? You are the hardest worker there is and you should make real headway on important projects. Do take the time to rest as well. All work and no play makes you really dull and boring. When you look back on your life you won’t wish you had worked more hours—connect from the heart with the ones you love, love. Is there a way a new routine could help you get to your goal faster? This month you can see new ways to do things. You are laying important new foundations.
Aquarius (January 21-February 19)
May is a perfect opportunity for you to ground that electric energy of yours. Genius ideas are a regular occurrence in your world but all that swirling mental energy can leave you sleepless and full of anxiety. A simple solution is to plant a garden. Getting your hand in the dirt and your bare feet on the ground is amazing medicine. If you don’t have some land do it in funky pots. Make it an experiment and grow things from seeds you get yourself from your own veggies and fruit. Life is magic. Find it.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Sweet Pisces, this is a stable, gentle month that can help you recharge your sensitive batteries. Take time to take care of yourself above all others. Feed your soul with peace and love. Immerse yourself in beautiful art, music, or movies that inspire. You are an artist and a healer by nature and that part of your character deserves some undivided attention this month. If you feel the urge to get out there in the world do that too. Spring is a flirty season. Someone wonderful could be waiting for you right there. Put yourself out there at the right time–you’ll know when.
Aries (March 21-April 20)
May is a wonderful chance for you to relax. Take a load off. You are an initiator, always on the go. Take time this month to take care of yourself in slow and careful ways. Relax. If you must be on the move make it leisurely: walks in the woods, gardening, foraging for your own herbs. Be a go-getter for the greater good and lead by example, since your courage is inspiring.Your fiery self is prone to headaches when things get moving too fast, so grounding is important. Plant your precious self. Show us how to grow. Show us how to be ourselves.
