Get ready to feel glamorous! Your May 2021 horoscope begins with the sun in grounded, patient and luxurious earth sign Taurus, encouraging you to shop till you drop and tantalize your five senses with beauty, art and pleasure.

However, by May 3, you may feel restless and ready to tap into your intellectual side. After all, this is when Mercury enters Gemini, stimulating your brain and making it a lot easier to multitask. And that’s not the only way this bubbly, easily-distracted air sign is entering the scene! When Venus enters Gemini on May 8, you may find yourself wanting long, fascinating conversations with a lover—and eventually, dirty talk that blows your mind. But don’t expect an instant commitment, because Gemini loves to keep its options open.

When the new moon in Taurus rushes through the cosmos on May 11, it will lay down the groundwork for something more permanent. The motto of Taurus is “slow and steady wins the race,” so take the time to form your goals and let practical and measured thinking help you bring them to life. Taurus is the zodiac sign of money and luxury, so this new moon is the perfect time to set your financial goals (or at least make a purchase that reflects all your hard work)!

May is also when one of the most feverishly anticipated transits begins! Mark May 13 on your calendar, because this is when Jupiter enters Pisces (which happens to be one of Jupiter’s favorite zodiac signs). This will represent the beginning of a highly generous, compassionate and artistic period of time. It lasts until July 28, when it will retrograde back into Aquarius until the end of the year. After how rough 2020 was, Jupiter in Pisces will be a well-deserved treat. Drink every last drop of this transit while you can, because magic, love and selflessness will be in the air!

After Jupiter enters Pisces, the cosmos will continue to support and uplift you. On May 17, the sun in Taurus will form a trine with Pluto, encouraging you to embrace deep introspection and reflection that will ultimately increase your strength, confidence and drive. And on May 19, Venus in Gemini will form a trine with Saturn, providing your relationships with a calm and steady foundation to allow you to build trust for the long-term.

Once Gemini season begins on May 20, things will start to get a little spicy and wild. After all, a lunar eclipse in Sagittarius will take place on May 26, which could initiate some abrupt endings and even unexpected new beginnings. Eclipse season will officially be underway, reshaping life as you know it. Change may be difficult at first, but it’s the only thing that will force you to grow!

And what would Gemini season be without a few tricks up its sleeve? That’s right, Mercury retrograde begins on May 29, making your entrance into the month of June an emotional rollercoaster ride. Hang on tight!
