Welcome to May, gorgeous Taurus. Your season began last month, giving everyone a dose of your signature sensuality and lust for life. When your ruling planet, romantic Venus, enters bold Aries on Monday, May 2, your focus turns to earthly pleasures. Yes, this could bring prosperous professional news, but it could also simply find yourself feeling grounded and full of gratitude. It’s easy to get stuck in your head, Taurus, so much so that you forget about the beauty all around you. This transit reminds you to stop and smell the flowers.
On Tuesday, May 10, Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini. Speaking of getting stuck in your head, this retrograde could cause anxiety and paranoia, so lean into those earthly pleasures, Taurus. Allow yourself to rest and sleep. Treat yourself to long baths or even a massage. Work on meditating, and any other self-care exercises that help root yourself in the present.
The lucky planet Jupiter moves into passionate Aries on Tuesday, May 10, bringing creative blessings. Around this time, you may see yourself wrapping up a professional project, selling artwork, or even spending more time listening to music and working on your favorite crafts. Hobbies are healthy, Taurus, and your ruling planet goddess Venus wants you to continue to indulge in such earthly pleasures.
If there’s one night to stay at home and enjoy creature comforts, it’s Sunday, May 15, which brings a full moon and lunar eclipse in dramatic Scorpio. Both full moons and eclipses can be emotional and unpredictable, and this one falls in your 7th House of Partnerships. As a result, beware of bickering with your partner or romantic interest. If you can, spend this night alone, with your pet, if you have one, or a trusted friend. Feel free to enjoy all the snacks and TV that you like; just put away your phone to avoid getting into any silly yet damaging text message fights with your lover.
Don’t be too sad, Taurus, but your season ends, and Gemini’s begins on Friday, May 20. While Taurus season brought rest and leisure, the next few weeks, see you out and socializing more. Gemini loves to party and be in as many places as possible. But remember, darling Taurus, you don’t have to accept every party invite. It’s okay if you’re not comfortable going to large gatherings due to the pandemic or just prefer to stay in. During Gemini season, when everyone is feeling flirty and carefree, check in with yourself to ensure that you’re honoring your emotional needs and not just doing what everyone else is.
Mercury retrograde moves out of Gemini and into your sign, Taurus, on Sunday, May 22. As a result, the effects of this infamous retrograde may feel amplified. You could make an unfortunate typo in a work email, text the wrong person, or encounter delays with contracts and travel. Try not to stress out too much, you’ve survived many Mercury retrogrades, and you’ll be fine. Just re-read emails before sending, double-check your text messages, and go heavy on self-care to soothe any anxiety.
