Hello gorgeous—your weekly horoscope for May 3-9 2021 is here to kick off the month. May starts on a talkative note when Mercury (planet of communication) enters Gemini on Monday, making even the most introverted sign chatty. Mercury is at home in Gemini, making us curious, flexible, and extra flirty (*wink*). Get ready because Mercury will be in the sign of the Twins for a long time and will be keeping us on our toes.
When the flurry of Gemini’s energy gets to be too much, things become a little more grounded when Venus (planet of love) in Taurus trines Pluto (planet of transformation) in Capricorn on Thursday, bringing stability during unexpected shake-ups.
The week ends on a very flirtatious note when Venus enters energetic Gemini on Saturday. For the next four weeks the motto will be “variety is the spice of life” as we become breezy, curious, and adaptable when it comes to love and money. While this is a great time to start a spring fling or learn something new, this is not the time to commit yourself to anything. We’ll be feeling very fickle.

No, those aren’t grapes! When you are ready to commit, be sure to have some garnet on hand. Garnet is the stone of devotion and commitment—it can even stimulate feelings of romantic and sexual desire. If you want your flirtationships this week lead to something more, it’s good to have garnet nearby. Just in case!
