This month, you’re embracing your individuality and tapping into what’s important to you. Your May 2022 horoscope begins with the sun in grounded and gorgeous Taurus, bringing you back down to earth. As the sun joins forces with Uranus on May 5, it will catapult your life toward something totally unexpected, but ultimately beautiful. Embrace the shifting tides, because they’re taking you somewhere you’ve never been before.
However, it may take you a while to get there. On May 10, Mercury will station retrograde in Gemini, bringing you the tell-tale symptoms of retrograde syndrome. Because Mercury rules over capricious and quick-witted Gemini, you may deal with conflicting thoughts, blabbermouths and missed calls. And remember—just because something sounds like the truth doesn’t mean that it is.
When Jupiter enters passionate and impulsive Aries on May 10, it will bring you a thrilling sense of direction, as though your heart is in the right place at the right time. Let go of your self-doubt and embrace the heat of being alive, babe!
The most climactic moment of this month takes place on May 16, when a total lunar eclipse rises at 25 degrees Scorpio and makes you feel like a freakin’ vampire. After all, Scorpio deals with the shadow side of life; with everything that remains hidden just beneath the surface. It’s time to let go of all that no longer aligns with you; to remove what does not understand you. Although it may feel painful when a chapter comes to an end, there’s *so* much to gain from starting the next one.
Luckily, it’s off to a fascinating start. The sun enters nimble, adaptable and whip-smart Gemini on May 20, increasing your mental awareness and brightening your social life! However, this airy and lighthearted energy will shift into something more stubborn as solidified by May 22, when Mercury retrogrades back into Taurus. As you stumble back into its earthen territory, you may find that unfinished business from your past resurfaces, prompting you to get your ducks in order!
You may feel like you’re circling backward and procrastinating, but all of that might begin to change as the month comes to a close. On May 29, Mars will join forces with Jupiter in Aries, supercharging your stamina and enticing you to go for the goal! If it’s not worth fighting for, don’t waste any time on it. As a new moon in Gemini caps everything off on May 30, this month ends not with a sense of finality, but on a captivating cliffhanger. Set an intention and speak it into existence, because this new moon is helping you reclaim your reality.
