Your May Horoscope Is Here, & These Are The Dates Your Dreams Could Come True

·10-min read


Get ready to rock this May! Mercury enters Gemini on May 3, followed by the swift planet’s retrograde journey, which lasts from May 29 to June 22. Take stock of the communication shakeups and technological breakdowns that will begin during the pre-retrograde shadow on May 14, because it’ll be the story that we’re working with until Mercury leaves its post-retrograde (aka, Retroshade) zone on July 7.

Romantic Venus moves into dualistic Gemini on May 8, offering up options when it comes to how we proceed in relationships and love. Then on May 11, the New Moon in Taurus gives us the chance to lead with the heart in all matters of our lives. Soon after, on May 13, expansive Jupiter enters Pisces, and will be in the mystical sign until July 28 (then again in late December, and on and off throughout 2022). Jupiter’s slow journey through the transcendental water sign will be a time to evolve our dreams and healing.

The Sun enters Gemini on May 20, which means we’ll be more talkative and wanting to hang with others more than ever. Then Saturn begins it’s retrograde journey on May 23 in Aquarius. This period, which will last until October 11, is a time of deepening commitments, slowing down in life, and being kinder to ourselves. The total lunar eclipse (which also serves as the second Supermoon of 2021) in Sagittarius on May 26 ends the vision that we cultivated during the Sagittarius New Moon on November 26, 2019. Now’s the time to ask ourselves: What have we learned? How have we grown? The lunar eclipse is a rude awakening that’s meant to align us with our truest path in life. Stay tuned for major awakenings and changes.

<strong><h4>Aries</h4></strong><br>No one knows more than you that it’s never too late to align yourself with and commit to what you love. Being the one of the most passionate signs of the zodiac lends you the motivation to chase your dreams without hesitation.

<strong><h4>Taurus</h4></strong><br>The New Moon on May 11 aligns with your Sun and marks <a href="https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/2021-year-horoscope" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:a fresh start" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">a fresh start</a> for you. The good news (which will propel you forward throughout the month) is that Venus’s ingress into Gemini a few days before, on May 8, urges you to push yourself to the max and stand up for yourself. There will be some bumps while attaining greatness in your personal life and vigour this month, but your resourceful mind will help you to sort through them. As long as you don’t let your ego get in the way of making the best decisions for yourself, you can create the inner world you’ve dreamed of during Jupiter’s entrance into Pisces on May 13 and the total lunar eclipse on May 26, two majorly transformative transits.<span class="copyright">Illustration by Stefhany Lozano</span>

<strong><h4>Virgo</h4></strong><br>It is time to change with the times. Opening your mind up to a new philosophy when Venus moves into Gemini on May 8 and during the New Moon in Taurus on May 11 will broaden your perspective and give you the motivation to seek special ways of understanding yourself in relation to the world. This will get you into gear for Jupiter’s entrance into <a href="https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/2018/02/191049/pisces-personality-traits-behaviors" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Pisces" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Pisces</a>, which will make you willing to accept accountability for your actions, thereby lighting up the alliances and bonds you have with others.

<strong><h4>Libra</h4></strong><br>Tweaking situations and relationships will help to make them better when Venus enters Gemini on May 8 and during the Taurus New Moon which occurs on May 11. Be forewarned that this will take a lot of work, but is doable if you’re up for the challenge. Even the littlest things will seem emotionally hard in regards to evolution when Jupiter enters Pisces on May 13. The more you compromise and see the bigger scope of matters, the easier it’ll be to attain such sentiments during the lunar eclipse on May 26.

<strong><h4>Scorpio</h4></strong><br>Your intimate relationships have been high and low for quite some time. Luckily, the New Moon in Taurus on May 11 gives you the chance to rebuild and start fresh with others. The only potential setback is that you may be unsure if you’re fully invested in working matters out for the long haul, which will be felt during <a href="https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/ruling-planet-retrograde-meaning" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Saturn’s retrograde" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Saturn’s retrograde</a>, beginning on May 23. Cracks in the foundation of such partnerships will be exposed, and you’ll be likely to second-guess your feelings during the lunar eclipse on May 26. Knowing that you don’t have to commit to keeping the dynamic going will be helpful as Mercury begins his backward journey on May 29, allowing you to assess the future of these personal relationships.<span class="copyright">Illustration by Stefhany Lozano</span>

<strong><h4>Sagittarius</h4></strong><br>You may feel as though you’re not getting enough attention and appreciation from your friends on May 13 when Jupiter swims into Pisces. Your outgoing demeanour will become more reserved, urging you to take time away from others and reflect on relationships. The probability for conflicts with your crew will be high on May 26, when the lunar eclipse has you wanting to confront matters with them. Mercury’s planetary retrograde on May 29 will make you want to give others second chances — a courtesy you’ll extend to your friends, being the idealist that you are. But by the end of this transit on June 22, you’ll realise that you can’t forget the past — even though you can <a href="https://www.refinery29.com/en-gb/gaslighting-apology-toxic-relationships-friendships" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:make amends" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">make amends</a> with others. <span class="copyright">Illustration by Stefhany Lozano</span>
