May Horoscopes 2018

In May, we’re transitioning from tactile Taurus to thought-driven Gemini. Taurus wants everything to be experienced hands-on, but once the sun slides into Gemini on May 20, you’ll notice your mind starting to race. It’s a good feeling if you’re willing to indulge your curiosity and connect with some new people, places, and ideas that pique your interest. Just don’t let yourself be overwhelmed by all the fresh stimuli. Channel Taurus’s slow, methodical approach and ground yourself with routines that can keep you sane once the breakneck Gemini pace kicks in.

If you have good habits on your side, you’re going to love this energy.

You’ll definitely need some structure to make the most of this month’s biggest event. On May 15, Uranus—the planet of surprises, rebels, and sweeping changes—moves into Taurus. With this unconventional planet in the sign of money, it’s an amazing time to dream up new and unexpected ways to grow your bank account and your professional reputation. But don’t bail on your day job just yet! Uranus takes seven years to move through a sign, so you’ll have plenty of time to plan your next career move, no matter how wild it might be.

 There’s also a sync between lucky Jupiter in Scorpio and dreamy Neptune in Pisces on May 25, an alignment that’s excellent for making your dreams a reality. Scorpio gives you the determination to accomplish your goals at any cost, and Pisces gives you the inspiration you’ll need to cross the finish line. Overall, this month is a major turning point, so clear your schedule and get ready to make the most of it.

Mark your calendar for May 15, because the stars that day are definitely aligned in your favor. Thanks to changemaker Uranus in your money zone for the next seven years, you’ll find plenty of new and lucrative ways to line your pockets. That might mean leaving a job that isn’t working for you anymore, but if that’s the case, it’s for the best. There’s a new moon that same day, so the cosmos isn’t wasting any time getting you to your next assignment. Mars into your leadership sector on May 16 motivates you to take the top spot, but make sure you play nice along the way.

On May 25, spiritual planets Jupiter and Neptune align in two of the most intense houses of your horoscope, triggering a big emotional breakthrough. By the time the Sagittarius full moon rolls in on May 29, you’ll be more hopeful than you have been in quite a while.
