May horoscopes 2017

Taurus

April 20 – May 20

The Full Moon on the 10th is going to bring up major relationship issues, so think twice before you say something you can’t take back, my love. If a former sweetheart or friend comes back around, this time it’s wise to let them reveal themselves to you. If things aren’t different, you’re bound to repeat the same relationship patterns. On the last week of May your challenge will shift to listening to your own inner voice — compile all the data you need leading up to that time so that you can make an informed call.

Gemini

May 21 – June 21

When you feel overwhelmed it’s important that you stop and take a minute to catch up with yourself, Twin Star. This month is all about making sure that your life matches your own true self. It’s essential that your ego is strong enough to hold you up, but not so rigid that you push others away. The key is in your motives: honour your desires above your fears. Allow yourself to catch up with what you truly want, instead of running from what you’re scared of, my love.

Cancer

June 22 – July 22

Pain is a sign that something is wrong, but the problem is that pain doesn’t offer us a roadmap for what’s not working and how to fix it. Try to stay emotionally present with what hurts this month, Moonchild. The stuff that isn’t working in your life is supposed to feel bad — that’s what motivates you to change it. Let the things that aren’t working in your life inspire you to make much needed changes this month.

Leo

July 23 – Aug. 22

It feels awful to make mistakes or to be wrong, but the truth is that the only true waste of your time and energy occurs when you don’t learn anything from that. Don’t get so caught up in your hopes for success and your fears of failure that you miss out on growth opportunities you didn’t foresee coming your way. Humility is not always your strong suit, but it’s exactly what you need to get out of your way and step into the light.

Virgo

Aug. 23 – Sept. 22

Seeking the truth is a noble cause, but it won’t solve all of your problems. First you must understand your situation in order to identify where you stand in it — only then can you act. This month it’s important that you don’t try to skip steps on your path before finding what’s right for you. If you build in the wrong place you’ll be dissatisfied with what you get, no matter how meticulously you plan.

Libra

Sept. 23 – Oct. 22

If you’re willing to step into some short-term discomfort you can have long-term growth. The problem is that have a habit of preforming happiness because of how much you hate feeling sad, Libra. This month is all about emotional growth. You have the right to be where you’re at and feel whatever you feel. Make space for even your most inconvenient feelings so you can show yourself the kindness you so deeply deserve.

Scorpio

Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

This is not the time for laziness. The Full Moon in your sign on the 10th is going to bring up some intense feels, so make some space in your week to be wherever you’re at. Your sign gets a bad rep because when a Scorpio who needs space doesn’t take it, that Scorp acts out! Take responsibility for your needs so that you can participate in your life in ways that bring out the best in you and allow you to thrive.

Sagittarius

Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

Patience isn’t easy — that’s in part because listening and letting things develop can feel like inactivity, evenwhen that’s the furthest thing from the truth. Sludge through the uncomfortable stuff, especially in the first 20 days of the month. The amount of emotional progress you make is foundational to your success, my love. Instead of waiting for things to happen, clear the way for them.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 – Jan. 19

You don’t need to know what’s coming next to feel safe now. This month is going to bring up lots of feelings and if you try to control or repress them you’ll end up an anxious puddle. Learn from your past, Capricorn. You’re not supposed to be perfect, but you do need to do more than go through the motions. Strive to be the best version of yourself by pacing yourself in a way that works for you, even if it’s uncomfortable for someone else.

Aquarius

Jan. 20 – Feb. 18

You’ve got so many ideas of what you can do, but even if they’re all good you’ve got to pace yourself. This month kicks off with you being overwhelmed and overburdened. This isn’t the end of the world, but it’s certainly got to be a time of change. Reconnect with what you really want for your life and make compromises in the present to support where you intend to be down the road. Prioritize your time so you can achieve your dreams, Aquarius.

Pisces

Feb. 19 – March 20

It’s time for you to grow beyond the limiting stories about yourself that you’ve bought. Your confidence is being tested and that’s no fun. Part of being a successful adult is not just knowing what you are — it’s knowing what you’re not. Have confidence in what you know yourself to be based on your lived experience, over what other people tell you that you are. It’s far better to try and fail than it is to hide and never know what could have been, Pisces.

Aries

March 21 – April 19

It’s time to lay down foundations, but that’s hard to do when you’re feeling so uncertain. Maintain your emotional balance before you work on advancing your goals. This month you are on call to let something go, likely to be an attachment to a person or situation. Don’t fear the instability of change, even as it brings you to unknown territory. You’re growing and it’s only natural to outgrow things in your process.
