ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19): Have the past seven years have been like a roller-coaster ride adventure for you? Electrifying (sometimes terrifying) Uranus, the planet of unexpected change, has been in your sign since 2011. Life may have offered you some surprises during that time. Well, I have good news. It finally moves from your sign into Taurus on May 15. Take a deep breath. You are living the new normal, and you can relax for a few months before it goes retrograde. In all areas of your life, you might feel more settled in, focused, and ready to commit to your relationships and career in new ways. You have a more definite sense of your life purpose and desired destination. Now, set your guidance system accordingly, and you can get anywhere you want to go (metaphorically and literally).

At the beginning of the month, Mercury will move through your sign, firing up your brainstorming skills. You could find the inspiration to start a new project, one that requires mental focus. This is an excellent time to form new relationships with customers and clients or pitch your ideas. You have a way with words, and you could appear a little more charming and intelligent. By May 13, close deals and sign contracts. Don’t forget to invoice! Your financial affairs look favorable, especially with the New Moon in Taurus on May 15. Try to budget wisely, and you can end the month with a surplus.

On May 15, your ruling planet changes signs, moving from hard-working Capricorn to humanitarian Aquarius. If you have been working diligently throughout the past two months, you could expect a reprieve. Your efforts will be fruitful, but you may not know how until later this year. Even if you have been frustrated with your vocation or have felt a lack of direction, you may have needed that internal pressure to help you access the necessary courage to make a life change. Mars will help boost your confidence this month. So, dream big.

After May 20, your social life becomes quite active, especially with the Full Moon on May 29. This will help any of you who are single and hoping to manifest a new relationship. For those of you who are involved, you and your partner might discuss a change in living arrangements after May 19. If you live together, you might find ways to make your nest even cozier. Understand that the shifts you’ve experienced over the past seven years have made you a different person, a more enlightened one at that. Relationship questions could arise for you as Uranus moves out of your sign. You have already learned lessons in independence. Now, perhaps, you’re ready for a new set of relationship challenges. Hang on for the ride!

TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20): Happy birthday! Recently, scientists discovered the upper atmosphere of Uranus is made up of clouds of hydrogen suffer, the molecule that makes rotten eggs smell so bad. Well, you can imagine the fart jokes circulating on the Internet! This news made headlines just weeks before Uranus makes a major ingress into your sign, where it will be until 2025. Uranus is the planet of change, surprises, and new beginnings. For a fixed-sign Taurus, these words can trigger an anxiety spiral. Your stable sign likes life to remain consistent and predictable. This Uranus transit suggests: Things are going to change! How? We don’t quite know. Uranus prefers to shock and surprise us, after all. To help ease you into its transition, Uranus shifts into your sign with a joke, asking you to take life a little less seriously. It asks you to play a little. Even if your sense of humor is too sophisticated for fart jokes, maybe you could at least let your face relax into a smile. There you go! Now, you’re ready for an adventure. It starts on May 15 and will continue on and on.

On May 13, Mercury enters your sign, and you might notice a surge of creative energy. This is excellent if you are a writer or need to brand yourself in a new way. You could receive an opportunity from out of the blue on May 15, with the influence of the New Moon. If you seek investors for your business or want to solidify relationships with prospective clients, then prepare your pitch materials by May 10. Your day in the spotlight could come at any moment.

On May 29, the energy of the Full Moon in Sagittarius could motivate you to rethink your offerings to the world. How do you make a difference? What is your purpose? Most importantly— does your income reflect the immensity of your contributions? Questions like these could be swirling through your mind. Though this is not exactly a time for answers (that will come by next month’s Full Moon), your inner dialogue could lead to financial breakthroughs. You might consider discussing your financial fears, hopes, and goals with a coach, therapist, good friend, or advisor. The dialogue can help broaden your perspective.

Let’s talk about love. Jupiter, the planet of expansion is in your seventh house of partnership. If you are single, you could feel urged to face your biggest relationship fears and push past them, opening yourself to possibilities. Because Jupiter is retrograde, you might reconnect with someone from your past, especially on May 25, when romance reaches epic levels for you. If you in a relationship, you could experience a renewed sense of connection with your special someone, especially if you have recently overcome rough times. You could have a chance to celebrate after Venus enters the nurturing sign of Cancer on May 19. The end of the month would be an excellent time to plan an anniversary ceremony and invite your friends and family.

GEMINI (MAY 20 – JUNE 20): Dear Gemini, have you ever been accused of having an “evil twin” or a mischievous aspect of yourself? If so, you aren’t alone. In fact, you have ancient Greek mythology to thank for your sign’s evil twin conundrum, and specifically the story of Gemini twins Castor and Pollux. Castor was born of a mortal father, but Pollux was the son of Zeus. The pair was inseparable. When Castor died at the hands of the twins’ rivals, Zeus offered immortality to his son Pollux. However, Pollux chose to grant half of his immortality to his brother. Thus, Zeus made the pair alternate between living in lush Olympus (the seat of the gods) and Hades (the underworld).

Now, think about your life. You have creative, life-giving aspects of your psyche that help you stay in the flow of positive manifestations! However, you also have tricky, misbehaving ones that thrive on a little mischief from time to time. Realize you will eventually find a healthy balance between the two, and give yourself a break! Your ruling planet is finally moving forward and fast. That means your evil twin can have a break, and you can move mountains in all areas of your life again.

Venus is moving through your sign until May 19, and you could be inspired to promote yourself in a new way. Have you been thinking about having new headshots? Perhaps you have wanted to update your social media or dating profiles. Now is the time. By May 20, the Sun’s entry into your sign will shine a spotlight on you. So, prepare to shine.

Your vision for the future is more apparent than ever. Your social circle might be in flux as a result. You are looking more carefully at your friendships and understanding what it means to be genuinely supported by others. You might consider volunteering to help an organization or mentoring someone. These types of activities could help you form new connections or experience the intangible rewards that come from making a difference in someone’s life. This is especially true around the time of the New Moon on May 15.

Relationships look relatively peaceful for you this month. After all, Venus is in your sign until May 19, helping bring all aspects of your life into harmony. If you are single, enjoy yourself! The Full Moon on May 29 in your sign is excellent for a romantic getaway or a brand new connection.

CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22): Your soul has chosen an interesting lifetime. To be alive at this moment in history means you’ve signed up for an adventure. Moreover, you were born in this era as a Cancer, a cardinal sign with an inherent urge to make things happen. Well, this month, you could receive significant insights about how to be an even more dynamic agent of change. You could accept an invitation to join a professional group or be elected to the board of your favorite cause. You might even think: It’s time to run for office! If your heart moves you to action, you will start planting seeds that will bloom for years to come. Pay attention to what happens on May 15, as the events of that day could ripple change throughout your life.

Your relationships could undergo significant shifts this month. You may question whether others are taking advantage of your generosity. You are loyal to those you love, but you could be reminded to prioritize reciprocal relationships. A new friendship paradigm is starting for you—one that allows you to be more of a leader. So, surround yourself with supportive allies and especially people who make you laugh.

Speaking of relationships, the planet Saturn, the planet of stability and commitment, is moving backward through your house of partnership. This influence could trigger some nostalgia, but be careful not to idealize an ex. Maybe they were a great person, but more likely, you probably liked who you were at the time of that relationship. Reawaken some of the traits you appreciate in yourself, and you can return to the present moment, readier to experience big love now. Saturn’s influence can deepen your desire for a long-term relationship. If you are single, this could mean it’s time for you to unguard your heart.

Professional opportunities this month could lead to long-term financial growth.  So, pay attention to any out-of-the-blue ideas about how to increase your earning potential. Focus on broadening your professional network. You could make significant connections this month, especially on May 15.

Venus enters your sign on May 19, ushering in a great time to get a makeover or even wholly rebrand yourself.  It will be in your sign until June 13, helping you shine your brightest.

LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22): Creative inspiration is like a lightning bolt— sudden, dynamic, and maybe even shocking. As a Leo, you were born to express yourself. So, when you have that spark of an idea, you feel alive and in tune with the entire universe. It’s time for brilliant insights, as your higher self is calling to you now. If you have been in a creative funk, you wonder if you’ll ever get your groove back. Of course, you will! It’s a mindset, after all; and it’s one that can change.

Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, is moving into Taurus on May 15, signaling a time of significant change in several areas of your life. You might become inspired to start a new endeavor, ask for a promotion at your current job, or even start branching out on your own. Maybe your side hustle is becoming more of a full-time job. If so, you could develop a strategy for making it even more of a success. By the time of the Full Moon on May 29, you will likely have a more definite vision.

The New Moon on May 15 could inspire you to become more involved in your community or seek leadership opportunities. This is an excellent time to commit to making a difference, like running for office or joining a board of directors for your favorite cause. Focus on your social media presence and expand your network.

At the end of the month, your social calendar could fill fast. Say yes to invitations, and enjoy being in the center spotlight. Your ruling heavenly body is the Sun, and you were born to shine. Now is the time to embrace (and live) your purpose more fully.

Because your life is in flux right now, you might have questions about your relationships. Even if you have been single for a while, you could be asking yourself: “Why am I single?” Or “What do I do about it?” You might consider looking for help and inspiration. Attend a relationship workshop or retreat or explore the self-help section of your favorite bookstore. This is a time for personal growth, and anything you do to better yourself will invariably help your love life.

VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22): When adventure calls, what do you do? Do you answer? Or do you come up with a list of a million reasons why adventure doesn’t make sense? In your life right now, the universe invites you to open a door of opportunity, explore a new destination, take a risk, or make a big life change. This month, follow your intuition and see what unfolds. Around the time of the New Moon in Taurus on May 15, your optimistic outlook will help you stay in a positive flow for good things to manifest in all areas of your life.

Uranus, the planet of sudden change, is moving into your ninth house of philosophy on May 15, and it will transit that sector of your chart until 2025. This influence could awaken you to new spiritual ideas and beliefs. Your mind will open broader, through the exploration of distant lands or deciding to go back to school for an advanced degree. This shift is just beginning.

If you have a book idea, prepare a proposal and start looking for the right person to help you make a connection. If you have received rejection letters in the past, perhaps it is time to try again. Likewise, if you work in film or television, you might consider moving forward with a development project. Someone unexpected could show up in your life to help you manifest a dream early in the month.

You could be motivated to start a new diet or make a health-related change after May 15. If you have considered working with a personal trainer, follow up and make it happen. Use the extra energy to help you meet your fitness goals.

After May 20, you could find yourself in the spotlight in a new way. Accept any invitations to speak, teach, or run for office. With Venus moving into Cancer on May 19, step out of your comfort zone and chat with strangers. They may become lifelong friends.

If your love life seems a little too serious lately, change things up and have more fun. If you have been single for some time and feel ready for a relationship, you might want to expand your search beyond your neighborhood. This is adventure time, and you never know where it will lead.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 22- OCTOBER 22): Venus, the planet of culture and beauty, rules your sign. Because of that, you were born with an innate appreciation for the finer things in life as well as a sense of style. While your accountant crunches numbers, you think of all the enjoyable things those numbers can buy. Even if you denounce materialistic ways, you can admit having appreciation for beautiful material things.

Well, Jupiter has been shining in your financial sector since October, and it may have been recently expanding your desire for abundance. During a Jupiter transit, you could earn more than usual, but it is essential for you to budget wisely to make the most of any extra coming in. This month, think long-term investments. Think dividends. Think wealthy thoughts to avoid buying into collective financial fears. From now to November, opportunities abound. You are laying the groundwork now for a prosperous future. To stay in a positive flow (especially on May 15), consult with your favorite financial guru for advice, and then find creative ways to save a few extra dollars a day.

Pending real estate related contracts or negotiations could reach finality this month, especially around May 18. You may revisit decisions to make a move or relocate. This is a time to establish roots for yourself as well as strengthen family bonds. If you have had challenging relationships with family members, you could experience healing conversations at the beginning of the month.

May is a time for weddings, graduations, and celebrations. Your social calendar could fill up quickly! Make the most of the social time, and have a blast, especially at the end of the month. Follow any urge to travel late in the month. You never know who you’ll meet on your adventures. This is an important time in your life, and you could form lifelong and life-changing connections.

May is a good time for career growth. You may be in the midst of forming a whole new professional identity. Even if you are out of the workforce, you could revisit dreams or goals from your past or develop ideas about ways you wish to contribute. On May 15, you might access courage to make a fresh start.

Romance is a definite highlight this month. Stay open-hearted and discover new ways to fall in love.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21):

Synchronicity:

noun

The simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.

By observing synchronistic happenings in your life, you begin to realize synchronicities add up to form a trail of guideposts the universe leaves for you to find your way. Think about your life right now. Since October, have you experienced more strange coincidences? More déjà vu? If so, consider those signs you are on the right path and keep going.

If you have been on a quest to find your twin flame, you might have a sudden awakening around the time of the New Moon on May 15, which can open your heart to new romantic possibilities. Uranus, the planet of unexpected surprises, moves into your opposite sign, Taurus, on May 15, ushering in a time of profound change in your personal relationships. Therefore, if you’re tired of being single, hang in there! If you are in a relationship already, you might experience a brand new beginning with your partner. Excitement will be a relationship theme for you until 2025, and you are in for an adventure!

On May 19, Venus, the planet of love and relationships moves into compatible water sign Cancer. You could receive an invitation to take a spontaneous trip or romantic getaway at the end of the month. Travel plans will charge your spirit and help you connect with friends, old and new.

The beginning of the month is also a good time to cultivate business partnerships. On May 13, you could start a new project with a partner. Success is imminent, with Jupiter shining in your sign until November. Think strategically but expand beyond your comfort zone.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21): May ushers in a time of significant change for all of us as Uranus, the planet of surprises, moves into Taurus on May 15. Because Uranus is one of the slower moving planets, it stays in a single sign for about seven years. When it switches, we all feel a shift. Perhaps you have intuited this shift. Maybe you have sensed it for some time. For you, the changes could manifest in your day-to-day life, including your work, health, and self-care routine.

You are perhaps becoming more tuned in to how you might contribute to the world and make a difference. This inspiration could lead you to branch out in new directions with your career or find ways to volunteer your time to help a cause. The universe could be asking you to explore your natural healing gifts, too. Perhaps you have unexamined talents to explore. You might even consider taking a Reiki course, studying yoga, or learning an alternative healing modality. The journey to a healthier, more balanced you could start this month.

If you have had extra expenses, you could feel a little more financially restricted at this time. If so, try to avoid feeding economic fears. Things will balance out over time, and you have got some positive changes on the horizon. Saturn in Capricorn can help your long-term finances. You might have to sacrifice a little more now for future gains. 2018 overall is a period of solid, steady growth for you.

On May 20, the sun moves into your seventh house of partnerships. This influence brings romance to the forefront of your mind. You could have a case of spring fever at the end of the month and into June. If you have been single for a long time, you might enjoy your freedom right now. However, if the right relationship comes into your life, you can strike a good balance between self and other. For those of you involved in a relationship, you might enjoy new adventures together. With Mars in Aquarius, you could enjoy taking a road trip after May 15.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19): If you want a rich harvest, you have to plant the right seeds at the right time. Now, this metaphor applies to all areas of your life. You are about to start a productive, creative season when you can manifest and grow anything. 2018 overall is a time of infinite possibilities for you. While you usually place one foot in front of the other and carefully navigate your way through life, you enter a new paradigm starting May 15, one of luck and synchronicity. Sudden, unexpected changes could inspire you to work less and play more. You could find more enjoyment in everyday life. Relaxation is the key to open the door of creativity. Therefore, take up a new hobby or revisit one from your childhood. Break out of the usual routine and have fun.

Saturn, your ruling planet, is retrograde this month. Because of that, you might revisit past goals or dreams. Perhaps you had ones that never manifested. Maybe you let them slide? Well, the universe always gives us a redo. Yours could be now. If your life feels like it has reached a still point, it is time for a reboot. Think community and connections.

Mars enters Aquarius on May 15, and this influence can motivate you to find additional income-earning possibilities. You could feel inspired to launch a project or start a side hustle. You may also use this influence to gather the courage to ask for a raise at your current job.

Plant seeds around the time of the New Moon on May 15, both in your garden as well as seeds of ideas out in the world. The end of the month is a fertile time, which means a great time to bring creative projects to fruition or even start a family.

Romance is a definite highlight right now for you this month. If you are in a relationship, you might consider taking your partner on an adventure. Even a weekend day trip would be a welcomed getaway and could help deepen your commitment. If you are single and looking for love, you could meet someone unexpectedly after May 19. Stay open to surprises. You could try online dating to open yourself to a whole new social circle.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18): As I started writing your horoscope, I had a vision of nomadic tribes, following a trail of abundant provisions and living with healthy detachment, ready to pick up and leave when the need arises. Technology has helped us concept a new type of nomad, a digital one, who can run a business from anywhere with good wifi. As an Aquarius, the idea of being free like a digital nomad (or an actual one) could appeal to you from time to time.

Maybe you have settled into a community. Perhaps you even own a home within that community. If so, the nomadic life isn’t for you. However, you can learn a little something from that lifestyle and go along more with the flow of life. If you have been anxious about the future or nervous about circumstances in your life, this is a month to let go of all fear and embrace the unknown. It’s adventure time, and while you may not become nomadic, your inner rebel spirit is about to awaken in a big way.

Uranus is the modern planet associated with your sign and will move into Taurus (and your fourth house of home and family) on May 15. This transit is a big deal for all of us, as Uranus changes signs about every seven years. For you, it has extra significance because it’s moving into one of your angular houses, and you will experience shifts in every area of your life. It starts with your home and family. You could be led to make a move, one that might take years to manifest. Start exploring all possibilities.

If you have wanted to make a career change, think big, and settle for nothing less. Seek opportunities for professional expansion, and you may be surprised by what you find, especially after May 15, when Mars enters your sign and boosts your confidence.

On May 20, the Sun enters Gemini and your fifth house of creativity. This is an excellent time to take up a new hobby, take an art class, practice a musical instrument, write a children’s story, or sign up for a cooking class. You could discover hidden talents. Creative vibes could also help boost your chances of starting a family, whether you are thinking about adopting a four-legged furbaby or are trying to conceive.

You might count on romance at the end of the month. If you are single, you could meet people at cultural events, like art openings or theatrical performance. Have fun. Your happiness is a magnetic attractor.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20): On May 15, Uranus, the planet of surprises, moves into your third house of communication, where it will be until 2025. As this planetary transit begins, you could receive sudden insights, bursts of inspiration, and a craving for knowledge. Follow all intuitive hits, as they could lead you on an intellectual (or actual) journey. On this adventure, you could decide to teach a course, write a bestseller, or learn a new marketable skill. The New Moon on May 15 will offer hints about this new beginning. Attune yourself to your internal guidance system by trusting your gut sense.

Throughout the month, you could find yourself on stage, speaking to groups as an expert in your field. Take advantage of the astrological influences featured early in the month by boosting your social media presence, especially engage in the outlets that help you form new professional connections. You also have a way with words. So, you could try to write blog posts or take colleagues out for coffee.

Your siblings (or friends as close as brothers or sisters) could offer important news early in the month. You might have reasons to celebrate by the time of the Full Moon on May 29. If relationships with family members have been stressed or challenged, you could experience healing and hope by May 20.

When the Sun enters Gemini on May 20, it shines in your fourth house of home, ushering in a favorable time to make a move or redecorate your space. Likewise, if you are in a relationship, you and your partner could discuss making changes to your living arrangements. Perhaps it is time to take your relationship to a new level. You will have clarity about next steps after Venus moves into Cancer on May 19. From that point on, romance will be a key theme leading you into summer. You are ready for love, body, mind, and spirit.
