As we all go deeper into isolation as most of the world remains on lockdown, many of the signs are turning inwards—both consciously and subconsciously—seeking both questions and answers to life, and love, and living. There is so much to learn. This month of May is presenting us with the opportunity to uncover truths about ourselves that have been buried with our past superficial ways of life.
The question is, are you willing to listen and do the work so you can come out of this brighter than ever? Let’s take a look. Here’s what the stars have in store for you. Here is each sign’s horoscope for the month of May 2020.
Taurus (Apr. 20 – May 20)
Happy birthday, dear one. Taureans are in for a special treat this season as not only are they having a good birthday, but a good whole month. The universe is on your side as a magical year lay ahead of you. It’s always been on your side, even when times are hard, but this year you are being guided further as you step into a highly prosperous time.
The highlight is on awareness, so you are being called to really pay attention and be mindful of the people and situations that enter into your life. Remember, everything is always as they should be—all your encounters are teachers that will bring value into your journey through life. Listen to them.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun. 20)
There’s been a cloud over your head, dear Gemini, and it’s making you feel a little confused and uncentered. This is especially true when it comes to the topic of finances, which is a big mental stimulus for you. But remember that moments of doubt like this one are actually opportunities for learning and clarity, so take a step back and try to look at things with a fresh set of eyes.
Better yet, for decision-making, let your heart lead the way. Feel your way through instead of thinking your way through. Your intuition will never fail you.
Cancer (Jun. 21 – Jul. 22)
Right now you might be feeling a little constricted, like a prisoner trapped in a room you can’t get out of. It’s normal to feel that way right now, but all events are teachers so also take this time as an opportunity to reassess your life. You might find some buried nuggets of wisdom there.
Take a look at the past month or months and this period of isolation you are currently going through. What have you learned through all this? What blessings, big and small, has it brought to you? Asking yourself these questions will help you find your center again, and come out of this even wiser than before.
Leo (Jul. 23 – Aug. 22)
This month, the focus for you is on friendship, dear Leo. You are being called upon to connect and reconnect with other people, especially your friends.
You can sometimes act a little guarded, but open yourself up this month. Instead of choosing only who you let in, open your doors wide open and see who comes in. Let others choose you. You might be pleasantly surprised with who shows up. Everyone we meet in life is a teacher, so when you do find someone showing up for you, ask yourself what this person is meant to teach you. Or you might be the one who was meant to teach them something.
As always, approach everything with love, and all will be well.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22)
This month of May you are being asked to go deeper into yourself. If you’ve been feeling a little lost or are seeking answers to some things, taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture to find a different perspective might be beneficial for you. And don’t be afraid to ask yourself some difficult questions because it is in seeking that you find answers. You can also reach out to perhaps a close friend or family—keep in mind that help is always provided, so don’t hesitate to ask.
You are in a search for truth, Virgo, and that’s brave. And remember, the answers are always found within.
Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22)
If you have been asking questions and have been more and more finding yourself seeking, then you would be happy to know that this month you are being given an opportunity to go on a journey leading you to answers. Although this journey may not be a physical one, it surely is the more valuable one as it requires you going deeper into yourself.
This time when most of the world is in isolation, more and more people are finding themselves reevaluating what is important to them, as we have been stripped away of our luxuries. But you are a fighter, dear Libra, and you have always had a creative mind. Use your strengths to dive into this journey within yourself to come out with a heart and mind that are brighter and clearer than ever.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
You can sometimes feel a bit too self-conscious, dear one. And deep inside you know this is something you wish you can let go off. But here’s a piece of good news—you can. If you could do anything without the fear of someone watching you and being judged, what would you do?
You know your heart and your desires more than anyone else, Scorpio. Don’t let your fear of being judged stop you from being free. These worries of yours are reflections of your own insecurities—it’s not other people judging you. It’s simply yourself. This month you are being called to let go and play. You might be delightfully surprised with what you uncover, and the exciting new connections that appear in your life because you finally just allowed yourself to be.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
You’re a hard worker, Sagittarius. And though sometimes it may not feel like it, all your efforts will surely bear fruit in the future. When you’re building something, one brick you lay out will not let you see the finished structure, but keeping laying those bricks and eventually you will. So keep building. Every sweat and time you put it is essential to achieving the success you badly want, and you will get there.
Keep growing your network too, as these connections that you have been making will be essential to your journey. Just don’t forget to stay humble through the process, and never forgetting to be grateful, especially towards the people who helped you get where you are.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
You may have been feeling a bit tired and weary, and it’s totally understandable, Capricorn. Right now is a very unusual time, and on top of that you have also been fighting some of your own personal battles. It’s difficult to get away right now, but it’s been on your mind. Don’t worry. Chin up. Hang in there. Soon the world will be as it was again, and you will be reunited with the things that made you feel safe.
You have been looking for some sort of teacher or adviser, and you will know that you’re found him or her in who makes you feel connected—understood. You will feel as if this person mirrors your own self. In turn, someone might also turn to you to be their own teacher, and don’t be afraid to share what you know. You have been through your own battles, and have so much wisdom to share. Don’t be afraid to share your light.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
We know life is tough and scary right now, and you have every right to feel as you do—uncentered, anxious, disconnected. Sometimes the feeling of hopelessness may also feel a bit overwhelming. But you are of the air element, dear Aquarius. And like air, you thrive everywhere. You defy shape or size or weight. You are so fantastically free. It’s human to forget, but this is a reminder to your true potential. Allow yourself to be what you truly are. Give yourself permission to be soft, flowing, emotional, understanding, and to feel whatever it is you are feeling. You have the power within you. Do not be afraid to tap into it.
Remember that everything we are going through is a teacher. So if you feel any burden or pressure right now, don’t be afraid to sit with it and with your own softness and vulnerability, ask it what it is here to teach you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)
Dear Pisces, right now you are riding over a calm—enjoy it. You might rather be doing something else than be stuck in isolation (must people do) but don’t let your restlessness make you forget the fact that you are privileged to be here. This is a blessing in a disguise, and perhaps you are being gifted with an opportunity to slow down, even when you thought you didn’t need it. Everyone needs a pause. Take this one and you’ll realize there really is nothing to complain about. Your life is good.
Aries (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19)
This month you are being called to focus on your life, Aries, although on some days you might be feeling like it’s more than you can take especially when it is taking you away from your own personal goals and dreams. But everyone has responsibilities, and sometimes we just really have to deal with them.
The way to lighten your load in aspects as familial responsibilities is not by taking it off your shoulders, but by approaching it in a different way. If you do things out of love, it will feel light, not a burden. And remember that everything is always as it should be—so your dreams are and will always be yours, even if they’re not here right now. Perhaps this time right now is for family, but that doesn’t mean your time for your dreams will never come. It will. The moment will come. Trust in the process.
