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

One of the year’s most eagerly anticipated movies, Dune, is finally here. It was first reported that director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) was working on an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel in 2016, and excitement grew as he attracted a top drawer cast led by Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac and Charlotte Rampling. The hype only snowballed as the trailer gave us glimpses of the film’s stunning visuals and genuine sense of grandeur. Then
Sometimes you’re really in the mood for a truly sexy TV show or one of the steamiest movies ever. What makes something genuinely sexy is subjective, but there’s no denying that some TV shows – hello, Bridgerton – are much sexier than others. According to new data by Romantix, the latest season of Sex Education is the sexiest TV show of 2021. Bridgerton is second, followed by season four of Elite in third. These rankings were compiled by tracking the number of UK Google searches for each show’s t
You don’t have to be an astrological fanatic to know your sun sign’s ruling element — after all, there are only four to choose from. Whether you’re a fire, earth, air, or water sign, this aspect of your astrological identity is foundational. Your ruling element can affect your personality, actions, and, yes, even your love life. If you’re curious about the deeper nature of your romantic relationship, it won’t hurt to consult your and your partner’s ruling elements. Of course, as with anything in
Yes, Scorpio season is upon us, and it only seems right that we should slither into it on the heels of Mars in Libra applying a square to Pluto in Capricorn on the 22nd. Mars is Scorpio’s traditional ruler, while Pluto has been attributed to Scorpio in more modern texts. There’s a tension here between these two, and that’s why our visions of the future world can feel as if they come to us as if from another time. Luckily, Mercury is in Libra, which gives us plenty of time to think things over an
Ever wondered what you’d say to a therapist, given the chance?

Have a question for a therapist? Submit yours for Sheri. Question: No matter how hard I try, I can’t get into any hobbies. It makes me worried that I’m lazy or boring. When everyone was getting into baking and crochet and rollerblading in the pandemic,
“There’s a name for that!” This is a frequent comment under TikTok videos in which the creator is discussing their all-consuming fear of sickness. Google searches for emetophobia tripled between October 2020 and October 2021 in the UK, and the #emetophobia hashtag on TikTok has 92.1 million views at the time of writing. Is the phobia on the rise or is it just (finally) being more widely discussed? And is social media really the best place to go to talk about it? Research into emetophobia is gene
Since the pandemic hit, achieving a decent work-life balance has never felt more vital. This can mean different things to different people – some of us want to work flexibly; others want to transition to part-time working. The key is finding a way of working that incorporates self-care and keeps burnout at bay. It’s definitely interesting, then, to check out new research revealing the UK’s best companies for work-life balance. Employer-rating website Glassdoor compiled the list by analysing more
The most popular baby names of 2020 in England and Wales have been revealed by the ONS (Office for National Statistics). For the fifth consecutive year, Olivia and Oliver remained the most popular names given to girls’ and boys’ respectively. There is some change in this year’s list, though. Ivy and Rosie replaced Grace and Freya in the top 10 girls’ names, while Archie replaced Charlie in the top 10 boys’ names. This marks the first time since 2005 that Charlie hasn’t made the boys’ top 10. Int
For years now, fashion has been moving towards circular and sustainable practices. But while we as consumers place more of an importance on greener consumption, it's also easy to get caught up in the desire for the new, new, new. So when celebrities and influencers are spotted re-wearing old favourites, it has an impact. Normalising that a piece of clothing shouldn't be a one-and-done matter, recycled red carpet looks are actually a trend we hope to see more of in the events to come. Some have e
In Ecuador, Mujeres Amazónicas has become a name synonymous with resistance. For nearly a decade, the group of about 100 women has fought to protect Indigenous land from extractive oil companies and against gender violence. In their fight for land and bodily freedom, they’ve faced threats from industries and governments alike. “We’ve sent a clear message that we won’t allow entry into our Indigenous territories and let them destroy the land and manipulate us. These are the consequences, ” Patric
