Weekly Horoscope

With the full moon and lunar eclipse in Scorpio happening this Monday evening (May 16), you may feel empowered to dial up the passion in the romance department. Either expect your significant other to surprise you with grand gestures, or expect yourself to suddenly find the urge to do so for your partner. If you’re single, you’re going to feel more confident going after what you want for your love life, which means being on high alert for the right match on your dating app.

In short, passion will rule everything at this time, and it’ll remind you to add some spice into your relationship every now and then to keep that fire alive.

Here’s how the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio will affect you this week:

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

You’re struggling to control your emotions right now as they continue to spill out of you. Feeling overwhelmed and confused, you’re second-guessing yourself and your decisions too. You must find out what your inner self needs at this time so that you may let go of this negativity and make space for new hope.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) 

Times are changing right now and it’s difficult to keep up. You are feeling lost in this new and strange environment. Know that you can always rely on your loved ones and your favorite things for comfort. This is a period of healing and transformation—but don’t ever lose sight of your reason to keep fighting and always be true to who you are.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Dissatisfied with what’s going on around you, you’re pushing yourself to chase your happiness with no regard for the consequences. While it’s okay sometimes to run after joy and fulfillment, you should always think your actions through and make sure you’re not actually running away from reality. Make time for self-introspection and carefully plan out what you need to do from here on out.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

There’s a new world out there and you’re deciding between venturing into this unknown path or staying rooted. Understand that in order to grow, you must welcome change. This is the time to invest in yourself so that you can become a better and wiser person. You deserve this success!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

There’s a lack of clarity in your life at the moment and you’re struggling to decide what you really want to do or be. Try to rationalize your thoughts and use logic to point you towards the right direction. It’s okay to take things one step at a time! Have a plan in order to reach stability for yourself, in terms of your career and finances most especially, now and in the future.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

A sudden, unwelcome change has happened in your life and it’s shaken the foundations of what you have built for so long. Consider this a rude awakening to transform yourself. Pick yourself up from this wreckage and make a plan on how to move forward. Listen to your heart. Not all is lost.

Libra (September 23 – October 21)

You may be becoming restless with how you’re living your life, wondering if there’s something else that would give you that fulfillment you crave. Remember that material wealth and status won’t fill you with joy in the long run, and so you shouldn’t aspire to attain them. Shut out all the noise and listen to your soul. Take this time to dig deep within yourself and know yourself in ways you probably didn’t know before.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You have probably been taking way too many responsibilities than you can handle, putting unnecessary pressure on yourself. Let go of these burdens and remind yourself what your true goal is. Think about what you can do today to get back on track towards achieving your dreams. Don’t live your life according to someone else’s terms! Claim your power!

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Dark days are here and you feel like there’s no end in sight. Despite these pains and difficulties, you need to rise above your emotions and have empathy—for yourself and for others. Don’t let the storm harden your heart. Trust in your strength that you’ll be able to get through this. The sun will rise for you again soon.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You may be feeling stabbed in the back and betrayed by people you thought you trusted, and you’re looking for someone to take the blame. It will take a while for you to get back up again but understand that whatever this is, it’s only a painful transition to a new beginning. Trust your gut, trust your insight. Be open-minded to new experiences and emotions. Grow with the changes but never forget who you are.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Your passion may have dimmed and you’re starting to second-guess yourself and your decisions. Take this moment to remember why you’re doing all this. Be in touch with your truth. Once you’re reminded of this, press forward and stay committed to making your dreams come true! Don’t wait for it to happen to you.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You may be going through heartbreak right now, not necessarily because of a romantic love that has lost. It could be pain from a ruined friendship, or a fight with family, or the current affairs of your country. Nevertheless, remember that you are strong enough to get through this. Allow this pain to shape who you are. Feel your feelings and then keep going. Know that there are people who will support you along the way.
