I know, I know it’s already the fourth of May, but honestly guys, nothing really even happens until the fifth of May. Why? Cinco de Mayo, that’s why, and isn’t that really when May begins?
If you didn’t know, now you know.
Anyways, Uranus is taking center stage this month entering into Taurus on May 15th. Now Uranus, apparently, is the planet of innovation, revolution, and sweeping change, and is going to make an eight-year journey through Taurus, radically changing every one of you astrological babies. So be prepared. This hasn’t happened for like 84 years, so it’s been a while.
Needless to say, continue reading to get your May forecast, and as always, give all the credit to the AstroTwins who guide my words like doves in the wind.
Yo, Taurus, it’s your birthday, we’re gonna party like it’s your birthday! For some of you Taureans, it probably has already been your birthday so think of this as the belated birthday wish of the season. Are you ready for some great news? Are you sitting down? Are you strapped in for adventure? On May 15, Uranus, the planet of innovation, revolution and sweeping change is starting an eight-year journey through Taurus, radically switching up your identity and lifestyle. Think of it as the biggest wellness cleanse you could ever go through, but for your entire life. Keep in mind that while all of this sounds exciting and good, you are known for being the sign that craves consistency so it could be a little overwhelming.
It also appears that relationships are going to be at the forefront of your mind for the next couple months, meaning you could meet someone that feels like a kindred spirit. For those of you already coupled, this could take the form of a friend that feels more like a close sibling that understands you on a deeper level.
CAVEAT: Even if your instincts are all pointing in this one direction, don’t rush into anything too quickly. We all know love is blind, but you may be looking at this situation with rose-tinted lenses.
Hey girl/guy! How’s it going? Guess what? Since Taurus is going through a whole Uranus situation (read above) you will too, Gemini—but this is going to look a little different. Your sign isn’t known for necessarily delving deeply into too many things, but with Uranus taking a plunge in Taurus it is making you extra spiritual and extra emotional.
Alone time is going to be your place of refuge through the month of May, giving you the rest and energy you will need to charge up and rest before we enter the season of Gemini. All of this time could allow you to soak up some interesting new ideas and get you inspired to lend your time to a cause or an organization that has been taking a backburner for a while.
This could also potentially look at new business opportunities that showcase your more altruistic side. The best way to take advantage of this spiritual time is to start by showing the people closest to you how much you care. Take all of your crazy ideas and write them down or share them with a friend who is likeminded. This teamwork could help bring about new change for your career or longterm goals.
La muvi star, that’s what we shall call you over this next month Cancer. All the stars are aligned and they are pointing at you—meaning you are stepping out of your shell, and for once, actually enjoying it.
This could be somewhat unexpected for your sign, but with Uranus entering into Taurus and your eleventh house of partnership and teamwork, this is allowing you to be extra experimental. Take the time to ride this out and enjoy all of the exciting situations that come with it.
For example, this could look like kicking off a new wellness routine giving you energy and encouragement to start working towards Cancer season. This is the perfect time to step out in nature and go for long hikes or bike rides. Stop off at the farmer’s market and enjoy local produce and experiment with new flavors in the kitchen. With your sign being all about partnership this month it could lead to a new lover or new friend that takes your health and fitness routine to a new level.
Leo you are known to be the rabble-rouser of the zodiac, but coincidentally, so is Uranus, making you a very interesting pair this season. If you have been feeling a little out of sorts and somewhat upset that you aren’t giving enough time towards projects and organizations that do good, now might be the time to switch it up.
However, your sign is one of the four fixed signs, making sudden changes that Uranus brings, somewhat overwhelming to you. Don’t freak out over the sudden change because you are being called to lead as a trailblazer and revolutionary for a good cause—let’s just call you the ‘Disruptor in Chief.’
By the end of the month you are going to be fully embracing all of the change, but be careful because Sagittarius is entering a full moon on the 29, taking candor up ten notches. Needless to say, watch what you say.
Oh, Virgo, you are by far one of the most dedicated, hard workers of the zodiac, but this month the stars are asking you to give more and be bigger than ever. You are entering a phase of exciting growth both spiritually and maybe even globally.
I know—I know, how exciting that sounds, but liberated Uranus enters the expansive and freedom-loving zone of your zodiac chart, making you delve into esoteric and voyages abroad. This might be just the time to start up your own business sharing the philosophical findings you discover on your ventures.
What’s with all the sudden changes into the unknown? Well, since 2011, Uranus has been in your internal eight house, allowing you to look deeper into your own emotions and soul. You have been working on some buried feelings and issues you couldn’t make sense of allowing you to grow inside. So this sudden change could be a breath of fresh air allowing you to leave the mind palace you’ve been cleaning, and enter a brave new world.
Ok, so Gwyneth Paltrow, patron saint of Libra’s just released a new book on Goop.com called The Sex Issue, and it seems so fitting because Uranus is in your eighth house of sex, money, and power, Libra. I know! Crazy, right?
This is an interesting time for you Libra because you could find yourself walking into some very unconventional paths both financially and relationally this next month. You are feeling liberated, judgment-free, and in tune with your desires, spiritually, sexually and even intuitively.
Clairvoyance could be the strength you lean into this month, meaning take note of your instincts and stick with them. Stop wafting through situations in order to find the perfect harmonious situation, instead, just stick with your gut. This could lead you to receive some long-awaited news about a possible job opportunity or project that you have wanted for the past few months or years.
Scorpio, I’m not sure what exactly is going on with you. Last month, you were all about new goals, career, balance, and harmony, this month you are all about relationships and health.
It seems like the start of this month has got you thinking differently about health and wellness and you’ve started to consider to apply the changes necessary to make your health line up with your long-term goals, and at the same time, you are possibly not still feeling like yourself. Take a look at some “gut health” solutions and consider meeting with a nutritionist. I understand this might be weirdly specific, but just roll with it and take a look at it if you haven’t been feeling like yourself.
As far as relationships go, this month is all about love and romance in unexpected places and from unexpected people. If you’ve been in a relationship that hasn’t necessarily been working out, maybe it’s the time to reconsider it and take a break. If you are single, consider dating apps, even though you don’t really need it Scorpio, it might present you with a person that you would’ve never considered but fall madly in love with.
Sag, my main squeeze, how you doing? This month El Sol is energizing you to feel efficient, orderly, and healthy. Basically, you have all the proper motivation for a good solid spring cleanup. All things health, wellness, and beauty are right up your alley, so jump on the bike and get to sweating.
Habits are usually something your freedom loving sign has no problem shaking, but with Uranus setting up camp in Taurus, and allowing everyone to feel more pragmatic and orderly, most likely you will too. As much as you don’t love coloring within the lines, sometimes you need to in order to experience more beauty.
As far as relationships go, you might be experiencing some romantic revelations to a long-term partnership—or at least the start of one. You will be in the mood to collaborate, cohabitate, and cooperate with that significant person who complements you platform perfectly. By combining superpowers, you will go further faster.
It is all about your love life this May, Capricorn, and spring hath given ever to it. You may have felt like your love life has taken somewhat of a hibernation these past few months but charismatic Mars is charging through your sign until May 16th you’ll be feeling fierce AF!
This means all the extra attention and eyes looking your way are going to make you feel more confident, more powerful, and sexier. Woo! If you haven’t taken your cue to step out on center stage, now is the time to do it. Basically, all of the stars are going to be aligned for the next six months for you allowing you to focus on love and fame that will inspire you to follow your heart. This is going to bring radical change, authenticity, and a need to express yourself effortlessly. If celebrity status isn’t on your to-do list, you’ll be compelled to share your talents and passions with all who listen.
Chateau Aquarius has been longing for attention for a while, and luckily May is bringing about the proper cosmic mixture for you to nest. Although, this could also mean that moving locations is happening or could be happening within the next few months. Whatever it is, you are going to be looking at refreshing your living situation for the better, maybe consider trying a new type of Feng Shui or possibly a wellness detox for your home?
All of this domestic change might also cause you to shift your family structure a little, especially regarding mothers, motherhood, and women. You may be looking for the perfect opportunity to address some issues and concerns or problems that you have had in the past. Codependency can be a cause to some of these issues and now is the time to break free and loosen any suffocating bonds. If you are a parent, your child might need more space to experiment with their identity, which could create stress, but as your sign is the sign of rebellion, you need to allow this person to break free and be the person they want to be.
Boy, do you have a ton to say this month, Pisces! But luckily the world is an eager audience waiting for your witty humor and profound ideas. The sun is prancing through Taurus in your third house of communication, meaning your social life is going to be off the charts and it is going to both engage you and stimulate you in a way that your sign loves.
If there are areas where you aren’t ‘woke,’ you could go on knowledge search hunting down all of the information or find a teacher, author, or community member to turn your perception on its head. Don’t go all Kanye now, but be prepared to challenge assumptions and conditioned responses to stereotypes in any way.
All of this knowledge could lean you down a new path this month. Whether it’s writing, blogging, or public speaking, you are going to have a natural ability to share your wisdom and insights with the world. Just don’t do everything for free, these opportunities could launch a new career for you and secure some financial woes that have been troubling you for the past few months.
Your birthday season has ended and after all of the parties and fun the perfect dose of reality setting the stage for stability and financial security. This is the best time to get grounded and put practical action plans together behind your big ideas. Certainty and structure are going to be the pillars on which you stand this next month, so lean in.
Since you have been hosting Uranus for a while, now that Taurus will, all of your lofty plans that haven’t touched down will finally touch down. Meaning, these past few years were ripe with exploration and experimentation, now you are ready to put the pedal to the metal and move forward with actual traction on your long-term dreams and goals. Finally!
