Happy May, sexy Sag! Last month reminded you that vulnerability is not a weakness. It’s healthier than bottling up your emotions. On Monday, May 3, communication planet Mercury enters charismatic Gemini and your 7th House of Partnership. Then, on Saturday, May 8, romance planet Venus joins Mercury and also enters Gemini and your 7th House of Partnership. What does this mean? Well, it’s good news for your romantic life, and it’s a sign that if you want to, you’re going to get laid, enter a relationship, or level up a current partnership. However, you also value your independence and need to remember to make yourself emotionally available if these are things you’re looking for. Your self-reliance is part of what makes you so attractive, but close relationships require emotional intimacy, so lower your walls when possible.
Tuesday, May 11 brings a new moon in sensual Taurus and your 6th House of Health. New moons mark new beginnings, so use this night to engage in a wellness routine that centers your mental health and beauty needs. You deserve to feel good.
Your ruling planet, prosperous Jupiter, enters psychic Pisces and your 4th House of Home and Family on Thursday, May 13. This transit is all about turning dreams into reality and is perhaps especially potent for you, Sagittarius. This transit will help you move in with a partner, buy a house, have a baby, or fill whatever need you may feel your home life is missing.
The sun enters Gemini, the social butterfly of the zodiac, on Thursday, May 20. Most people’s social lives are changing as warm weather arrives and people get vaccinated. As the archer of the zodiac, you likely have been chomping at the bit to get back out there. However, returning to “normal” may be tough, as we’ve all experienced a lot this past year. Around this same time, rule-maker Saturn goes retrograde from Sunday, May 23 to Sunday, October 10. This retrograde asks you to identify your boundaries and stick to them regarding socialization. Stay safe, and allow yourself time to readjust.
So far, May has brought happiness and good news, especially in your home and love life. However, one day that may have some chaotic energy is the full moon and lunar eclipse in your sign on Wednesday, May 26. Eclipses can bring unexpected drama. Use this day to wrap up loose ends at work, but don’t start any major new projects. Mercury then goes retrograde on Saturday, May 29, causing the usual travel and communication delays. Continue to stay in your own lane to avoid chaos, double-check emails, and texts, and don’t ruin the new goodness in your life by falling for an ex who may reappear. Enjoy your blessings and see you in June!
