April 20 – May 20
Another year passed already? It’s amazing how time flies when you barely leave the house. But there are changes ahead, and you will have the energy to make the best of them. Some of the smaller ones will help strengthen your inner peace; other, more substantial ones will greatly improve your quality of life—a new home, a nicer workspace or a flower garden, perhaps? You’ll also have the willpower to resist indulging in any excesses you might regret the next day. Yes, Taurus, that’s the beginning of wisdom.
May 21 – June 20
The influence of four energizing planets is giving you wings right now. This feeling of freedom is intoxicating and makes everything seem easier. But don’t hold yourself back thinking it’s too good to be true—things are easier. Instead, take the opportunity to overcome certain fears.
June 21 – July 22
If you thought you were going to have quiet days with your love, think again: Passion and bubbling exchanges of views are going to spice up your relationship. Will you always agree? No. Will your ego be spared? Again, no. But will these exchanges leave you with a more open heart and mind? Definitely!
July 23 – Aug. 22
Oh, Leo, you’re always so proud of your independence. Yet the time has come to work as part of a team. “What?” you ask. “Collaborate without standing out?” Oh, yes! Because knowing how to get the best out of everyone is one of the most important skills you can have. And don’t forget: You shine when you lift others.
Aug. 23 – Sept. 22
Confident, vibrant and irresistibly alive—that’s you right now, Virgo, and it’s beautiful to see! You’ll shine career-wise during the first half of the month, while the second half will bring a boost of positive energy for relationships. Single? You’re more appealing than usual, so don’t waste it.
Sept. 23 – Oct. 22
As long as there’s nothing disastrous going on, Libra, you feel invulnerable. But the May skies are trying to teach you a lesson. So what’s the takeaway? Well, for one thing, it wouldn’t hurt to have a financial cushion—you never know what annoying events could arise. Being prepared will help you stay calm and cool.
Oct. 23 – Nov. 21
Stop and take a deep breath of fresh air. It sounds so simple, yet your need for it is almost overwhelming. Make sure you have your own back right now and take care of yourself. On the upside, you can expect some recognition from superiors for your hard work and good results.
Nov. 22 – Dec. 21
It’s always better to think big—especially when you suddenly have the means to get what you want, the limits you set for yourself have fallen away and the support that you were waiting for has magically arrived. It’s finally your turn to show that you’re capable of achieving your goals.
Dec. 22 – Jan. 19
While the whole planet is dreaming of getting out of the house, you’re investing in yours. You are ardently beautifying either the place you already live in or the one that awaits you. And you’re succeeding: The work is going well and is within budget. It’s cause for celebration; raise a glass in the yard or on the balcony!
Jan. 20 – Feb. 18
A thunderstorm is brewing on the relationship front. It might be between you and that friend who keeps rambling on about the same things or the sister with whom you have an ongoing rivalry or the lover whose jealousy threatens the relationship. What can you do? Either walk away or clear the air and start afresh. Don’t worry: The good ones will weather the storm.
Feb. 19 – March 20
Friendly warning: Your mental equilibrium may be impaired. As a consequence of always asking more of yourself, especially when it comes to helping others, you will shut down. It’s okay, though; there is nothing selfish about taking care of your own well-being and refuelling. Remember: You can’t give what you don’t have.
March 21 – April 19
Disciplined like never before and determined to succeed—whether it’s learning Spanish, conquering your fitness goals, rescuing your relationship or starting a business—you spare no effort. Keep at it and ignore any reproaches from loved ones; your persistence will be rewarded handsomely.
