12 Sign Overview
May 2021 Overview
The month of May is finally upon us, signaling the start of summer and also the coming season of the transformative Gemini. This month, many powerful cosmic shifts are entering our lives, bringing with them an array of opportunities for growth. Although the month begins in the grounding earth sign of the Taurus, other major celestial influences this month have a different plan, and trust us; it’s a big one.
To start, the lingering energy of the Pluto Retrograde from the end of April will set the tone of the month right off the bat, pushing us to reflect deeply on our life. And while it may have our heads in the clouds thinking on the past, it’s also going to inspire us to purge out all the toxic things in our lives as well. Whether that’s old relationships or a negative job, May is the month of letting go, and the energy surrounding us right now is sure to make that happen. But on top of the energy of reflection this month, we will also be accompanied by the practical and grounding energy of the Taurus, which will be pushing us to work on our inner selves and reconnect with our source. We will then end the chaotic month of May with a powerful full-blood moon accompanied by two invigorating retrogrades that are sure to send us off to June with blazing trails.
Overall, while there's a lot of energy mingling this month that will be causing some definite confusion, it will also bring us inspiration for change and a strong motivation to work harder in all aspects of our lives. But to give you a more detailed inside look into it all, today, we're going to touch on what energies each Zodiac sign can expect to feel throughout the powerful month of May & how you can truly make the most of it.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Starting off with the powerful Aries, Taurus season will urge you to push the limit on your definition of productivity. From working late at your job to cleansing away bad habits, you’re going to be propelled into a routine of work right off the bat. But don’t worry, you won’t have a single complaint. In fact, you’re likely to feel happier and more fulfilled than ever, and it’s certainly a good look on you, Aries.
Now, with your inspired jump on everything in your life and the overall forward movement of the season, opportunities surrounding a career change may also be in your near future. So, if you’ve been thinking about making a job change, there’s truly no better time than right now. Have faith and take a leap, Aries. Although, we know you didn’t need us to tell you that.
Romantically, because you’re feeling confident with the energetic changes in the month already, your confidence will also be building in regards to love. Because of this, now is a great time to make a first impression with someone you’ve been admiring from afar. Your charisma is truly on fire right now, so this should be no problem for you. If you’re in a relationship, expect passion to be off the chain, especially around the 8th of the month. Have fun and let loose, Aries. You deserve it.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
For the Taurus, we’re in your beautiful birthday season, and it’s off to an audacious start. This month, self-care practices are going to be put into focus for you, thanks to the gentle influence of Venus. Whether it’s taking a weekend away at the spa or treating yourself to a night in with your favorite movies, take some time to pamper yourself this month. Not to mention, you have some major transitions coming your way towards the end of the month, so it’s important to find some grounding practices in the meantime to help it run smoothly.
On top of the self-care vibe lingering in the air this month, since we’re in your season, your personal goals are also going to be a big focus for you. Whether it’s in regards to your love life, career, or personal hobbies, you are encouraged to let your heart lead the way throughout this transformative month if you wish to find true alignment with your divine purpose.
In your romantic sector, this month, you may be presented with the opportunity to meet new people. A special new interest, in particular, could have you feeling like a love-struck teenager all over again. Keep your heart open to the possibility of love this month, dear Taurus, even if it doesn’t fit your normal expectations for it. If you are in a relationship, finding quality time to reconnect with your partner is a must. However, things seem to be running pretty smoothly in love for you already, so this shouldn’t be a problem.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
For the Gemini, aligning with the energy of the season, the month of May will be full of transformation. Starting off the month, you’ll feel drawn towards detoxing your life of all bad energies. From negative thoughts to bad habits, the last quarter of the moon on May 3rd is pushing it, and you’re certainly ready for the change. After this, Mercury will enter your sign which will have your communication beaming, pushing you to want to meet new people and make new friends (just make sure you do it safely).
In love, since your need for communication and social interaction will be amplified this month, you’ll have a high probability of meeting someone special. This, alongside the influence of Venus on the 8th, will give you a higher chance of charming someone. Don’t be afraid to flirt a little, Gemini. It’s certainly one of the things you do best. If you are in a relationship, your passion will be on fire this month and could draw you closer to your partner. However, since you’re also working on detoxing this month, quarrels could also arise in a relationship if it’s a toxic one, causing you more war than peace. Navigate it the best way you can, Gemini, and don’t take anything less than you deserve.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
For the Cancer, May is predicted to be a month of reflection for you. This summer month will start with the lingering energy of Pluto’s retrograde from last month, which will have you contemplating many things in your life. Are the people and energies in your life aligned with you? Are they serving your highest good? If not, now is an excellent time to let them go, Cancer.
Romantically, if you are single, don’t expect too much excitement this month, as you already have enough on your plate emotionally to begin with. If you are in a relationship, you may be reflecting on your partner and asking yourself if they are truly the one you wish to be with in the end. If not, it might be time to cut those ties, too.
By the end of the month, you’re going to feel burnt out and will need to take some time to relax. The full moon on the 26th will amplify your need for self-care and help you to do just that. Take your time, Cancer. You deserve a little peace and quiet.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
For the Leo, the month of May is going to kick off with a peak of confidence for those born under the lion symbol. The last quarter of the moon, taking place on May 3rd, is going to help surge your productivity levels, pushing you to work on yourself more than ever. From your self-care routine to your job productivity, this month, all things having to do with self-improvement are being put into focus, and it is the perfect time to start chipping away at them.
In your career, Mercury will be entering Gemini on May 3rd, which will have you feeling inspired, motivated, and creative. Because of this, now is a great time to push that energy into the workplace and use it for further advance. And with Taurus season going full speed ahead, your career will be surrounded with powerful energies of growth and movement that can certainly assist you with this.
Romantically, since you’re going to be flying through the month blazing with personal motivation, love isn’t going to have a big focus for you. Therefore, if you’re single, expect to be directing most of your focus towards your goals this month instead. If you’re in a relationship, make sure you take some time to slow down and have fun with your partner. Being motivated and working hard is very admirable, but don’t forget to also bring that special someone in your life with you to keep your love life thriving.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
For the Virgo, the month of May will kick off with you directing your focus towards inner work. The Pluto Retrograde that came into our lives last month is still influencing you, and it’s making you ask yourself how you can find balance in your life. But don’t worry; a little reflection certainly goes a long way and should help you make the most of this uncertain time.
On the career front, the start of the month may feel a bit repetitive to you, doing the same thing over and over again. However, around the 20th, when we enter Gemini season, new opportunities may start to arise in the workplace that could point to further career advancement.
On the romantic front, Venus will enter Gemini on the 8th of the month, which will have you feeling extra flirtatious. This, alongside your already confident demeanor, will help to push your charm to its extremes, making it easier than ever for you to woo someone. If you’re in a relationship, expect things to spice up a bit in your love life, which may even make you want to try something new and exotic in the bedroom.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
For the Libra, in May, you might start the month feeling a bit off. And as someone who craves balance in all aspects of their life, this is going to make you feel quite unstable from the get-go. However, this will have no effect on your creativity levels. In fact, with Mercury moving with Gemini on May 3rd, your mind will be full of a plethora of ideas. From your career to your personal goals, now is a great time to brainstorm and start putting all your ideas into motion.
In your romantic sector, the love planet, Venus, will help you to be bold in love starting May 8th onward. This could mean working up the courage to ask someone out or even dating a type you wouldn’t normally. Either way, it’s a great time to put yourself out there and be your authentic and beautiful self. If you are in a relationship this month, you may feel an urge to try something new with your partner. Have fun and spice up your passion a little bit this month, Libra. It will certainly be well met.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
For the Scorpio, May is predicted to be a month of both ups and downs for you. Starting off your month, the Pluto Retrograde of April is still here and still influencing you heavily. This is making you desire quite a few big changes in your space. From your career to your friendships, now is a great time to reflect and see what exactly it is in your life that isn’t doing it for you anymore.
In love, if you are single, romance won’t be a huge focus this month, as your mind is already otherwise occupied. If you are in a relationship, you may start to question if the person you’re with has your best interest in mind. Something about them may have you questioning their role in your space, and it’s time to get to the bottom of it once and for all.
And lastly, in your career, you may feel a sudden need to reinvent yourself. And honestly, if that’s what you wish to do, the Universe is certainly encouraging it. Be bold and try a new job if you've been pondering something else. Now is an excellent time for a change, so don’t miss your opportunity.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
For the Sagittarius, the month of May will plunge you head-first into a focused period of productivity, pushing you to make some serious changes in your life. So if there’s been something that you’ve been pondering doing for a while in your life but have been scared of, now is the perfect time to get a jump on it.
For your career, with Mercury entering Gemini, you’ll feel confident in your communication skills, which will have you comfortable with asking for new things in the workplace. Whether it’s a raise, more vacation time, or even an advancement, now is a great time to negotiate something new. Just make sure you take the proper approach with it so you don’t come off as too pushy.
In your romantic sector, by the time we hit Gemini season on the 20th, you’re going to want to make some romantic improvements. Whether you've been neglecting your partner or just letting the spark die, you’re going to feel a sudden burst of passion for rekindling the flames that once were. If you are single, the cosmic changes in the month could push you to be more outgoing in love, which could up your chances of meeting someone special. Keep your heart open, Sag; someone very special may be just beyond the horizon.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
For the Capricorn, the month of May will be focused on reconnecting to your roots. At the beginning of the month, Venus and the Sun will enter your space, pushing your need to connect back with your home life. From a family dinner or a small vacation, now is a great time to ground your energy with your loved ones (safely), so make sure that’s a big priority for you this month.
For your career, when Saturn’s retrograde hits on the 23rd, you may start contemplating where you want to go with your work. If you don’t feel happy at your current job, it may be time to start making a plan on how you can move on from it. I hate to say it, but things aren’t looking like they’re going to get better in the workspace, so it may be best to just start anew.
In your romantic sector, if you are single this month, it’s important to remain open to the possibility of love, as many new chances for it could arise later in May. If you are in a relationship, you may have had some bumps in the road with your partner, and it has left you questioning some things about your relationship. If this is the case, the new moon on the 11th may be the push you need to take some time away from this person to figure things out. This doesn’t mean you have to end it, but you definitely need to take some time to align with what you truly want in regards to love.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
For the Aquarius, the start of the month of May might have you feeling a little off. This is likely from energy carrying over from last month, such as a job loss or argument. No matter what it is, this month, your focus will be put on releasing the things that disturb your inner peace. Remember, it’s okay to feel down, but don’t let this drag you down. Better things are on your horizon, Aquarius. Stay strong.
In your career sector, the eager energies of the month have you feeling motivated to accomplish a certain goal. If you’ve been wanting to make a career advancement but have been unsure about how to achieve it, the sudden realization may come, and it will be very welcomed.
Romantically, Venus will enter Gemini and will create a beautiful opportunity for you to find a new love interest around the 8th of the month. With this, the sun will seem to shine a little brighter, and you will begin to feel more like yourself than you have in a while. Follow this urge, Aquarius, even if it isn't something you would normally pursue. For those in a relationship, you may start to feel the butterflies in your stomach again like you once did with your partner. Take this as a sign to rekindle any love that you may be neglecting. Although your mind has been occupied with other things, never forget the value of the person you’re with. Make time this month to show them just how much they mean to you.
Pisces (February 19 - March 10)
And lastly, for you, Pisces, the month of May is a good time to take a step back and lie low for a while. The transformative energies lingering around this month are going to be chaotic, but as a water sign, you always prefer to opt for peace instead of chaos. Therefore, you’re likely to find a way to avoid these intense cosmic shifts and get them moving in your favor instead.
For your career, your finances will be brought into major focus around the new moon in Aries on the 11th. This will help to bring luck to your money and your job, which will allow you to sit back and reap the rewards without doing too much work. However, make it a point not to get cocky with this, as bad karma associated with that could lead you down a messy road of failures instead.
Romantically, this month doesn’t have anything too significant going on for you. However, making yourself available and putting yourself out there to meet others is always a welcoming invite. If you’re in a relationship, make the most of this quiet period and spend it with your partner. Whether that’s dinner and a movie or simply just hanging out at home, now is a great time to create some new memories and should leave you both feeling very full in your heart.
