This month, we’re transitioning from Taurus to Gemini. As an earth sign, Taurus loves things it can feel, like cash, excellent food, and wine, and opportunities for hands-on experience. On the other hand, Gemini is an air sign, meaning it’s associated with the mind and fresh ideas. So as we transition from Taurus to Gemini this month, your concrete plans take flight. Anything you can dream up, you can do! You just have to suspend your disbelief long enough for your grand plans to get off the ground.

After last month’s four retrogrades, that could seem like an impossible task. Don’t give up! The month starts out with Mercury direct in Aries on May 3, refueling your passion and reminding you what you loved most about your projects in the first place. Mercury gets a boost from electric Uranus on May 10, the same day as a sexy full moon in Scorpio! Your imagination kicks into overdrive, setting a romantic mood for the rest of the week. By the time Mercury slips into sensual Taurus on May 15, you’ll be ready to seduce the object of your desire, whether that’s a career goal or a dreamy new lover.

During the second half of May, things get serious. On May 19, career-minded Saturn in Sagittarius aligns with visionary Uranus in Aries to catapult you out of any comfortable rut relating to your job. The sun enters Gemini the following day, inspiring you to try a few totally new things. Finally, a Gemini new moon on May 25 could be the cosmic rebrand you’ve been waiting for. The stars are aligned for you to tell a new story!
