Liberation Through Chaos

 

Ready or not, May is a month of massive change and metamorphosis with many astrological shake-ups to unpack. All 12 signs will feel an itch directing them to seek sturdier life foundations, but stability can only be achieved through embracing chaotic, even destructive moments throughout the month. May might not be the most comfortable, but the coming days and weeks hold limitless power for positive progress.

 

The major tectonic shifts begin on May 15 when revolutionary Uranus transits out of fiery Aries and into cozy, earthen Taurus. Uranus lies on the outskirts of our solar system, moving at a cosmic snail’s pace, circling the zodiac every 84 years. So when the planet of rebellion, innovation, and technology creaks into a new sign and house, life seems electrified by dramatic, quickfire transitions.

 

Uranus is determined to chip away at stagnation, directly pointing to broken or unfixable elements that need to be demolished to make room for verdant growth. Each sign will experience an upheaval placing specific aspects of life into a state of flux. Despite the future feeling uncertain at times, each and every sign can operate from a state of grace, putting their faith in the understanding that lush new beginnings are being birthed through discord.

 

High-minded ideals focusing on humanitarian aid and upward social mobility become all the rage once assertive Mars enters affable Aquarius on May 16. On May 19, luxuriant Venus embraces sensitive Cancer lending a hyper-loving, maternal vibe to matters of the heart. A full moon in the sign of the Archer, Sagittarius, wraps up the month on May 29 with an optimistic, broad view of all you’ve accomplished through Uranus’ electric storms. The bigger picture is so much more clear and as June opens, what truly matters in life — along with your role in manifesting your vision — will be unmistakable.

 

Aries: Financial Flux

The running theme of May is financial strength. And after the gauntlet of the past few months, you’re ready to go the distance. Revolutionary Uranus — which has been in your sign since 2011, ensuring you’re tearing down walls limiting you from living your absolute best life — moves out of Aries and into Taurus on May 15. Now in the earthy, money-minded sign of the Bull until 2026, Uranus charges into your Earned Income Sector to help you focus on reinventing your money-making talents. Uranus governs innovation and technology, favoring revenue generated through internet-based industries and tech. If you’ve had the itch to change career paths or start a new business, the second half of May will be ripe with new cash-flow opportunities.

 

Either way, expect money to fluctuate wildly throughout the month with dramatic bonanza periods and dry spells. When it rains, it pours, just make sure you’re making smart decisions with your cash when the pendulum swings in a positive direction. A smart new moon in Taurus in your Earned Income sector on May 15 indicates a fresh start along with a helpful, logical mindset in all money matters. You’ve got this, Aries.

 

Mars, your red-hot ruling planet, enters friendly Aquarius and penetrates your 11th House of Social Status on May 16. Energy to circulate socially is flying high, though your buoyancy is most powerful when channeled into humanitarian-minded organizations. A bold, optimistic Sagittarius full moon rounds out the month on May 29, delivering the right attitude for moving mountains to manifest your dreams.   

 

Taurus: Beyond Comfort Zones

Happy birthday, Taurus! May marks your annual solar return with plenty of swift changes attached to a new year and cycle. Mundane life is about to receive an electric jolt, awakening you from the deep slumber of complacency. Your stubborn, steadfast character may cringe at the idea of radical shifts, but don’t panic: May is a month of stellar growth, forcing you to come alive with new vim and vigor.

 

Perhaps you’ve been too accommodating to others without taking your own needs into account first (or ever, really). Though you mean well, you’ve nestled into a comfort zone that doubles as a doormat. Uranus, the planet of originality, revolution, and invention will transit into Taurus on May 15, highlighting how this attitude has stifled your ability to thrive. That same day, a Taurus new moon rejuvenates your sense of self-worth, demanding that you begin to live life on your own terms. By attuning you to your highest value, you’ll adopt a healthy, new outlook: Don’t settle for anything but the best.

 

On May 16, assertive Mars will enter Aquarius and transit through your Career Sector, lending enormous support to your professional ambitions. You’ve got a cosmic green light to begin something new relating to your life goals. Don’t be afraid to stretch even further beyond your  comfort zone. The month ends with a full moon in optimistic Sagittarius on May 29, reminding you that luck is simply thorough preparation combined with golden opportunity.

 

Gemini: Solitude + Secrets

You may be one of the most socially fluid signs of the zodiac, but May is all about embracing internal shifts and entering hermit mode. Uranus, the chaotic planet of revolution, invention, and progress, enters your private 12th House of Secrets and the Subconscious on May 15, urging you to explore talents you usually prefer to keep hidden. You may feel driven to develop psychic or mediumship abilities or take up studying the occult, astrology, or esoteric practices.

 

A Taurus new moon occurs on that same day in your 12th House, compelling you to dive deeper into solitude to sharpen these secret skills. Don’t concern yourself with others’ opinions, no matter how “out there” these talents may seem. Your visionary knack could lead to a new career path in the future, but for now simply embrace the metaphysical and spiritual communion of your work.

 

Uranus and a new moon activating your psychologically charged Subconscious Sector make the second half of May ideal for beginning therapy or seeking counsel from a spiritual advisor. Confronting the root of anxiety or insecurity may yield shocking revelations, but this temporary discomfort will result in a new freedom to express your most genuine self.

 

A Sagittarius full moon brings relationships into sharp focus on May 29, calling you to be brutally honest with your mate or business partner. Facing your stark differences in a disagreement could broaden your understanding of each other, drawing you closer. Collaboration is key, so argue respectfully if things become heated.

 

Cancer: Keeping Company

May cracks the shell on your social life, broadening horizons within your friendships. A Taurus new moon falls in your 11th House of Friends on May 15, activating brilliant new beginnings in networking and making fresh acquaintances. The same day, Uranus follows the new moon into Taurus and your Friendship Sector introducing positive influences into your clique. You may be more attracted to eccentric types and find yourself surrounded by free-thinkers and visionaries. May is an electric month for joining social groups or organizations dedicated to exploring esoteric — even paranormal — interests.

 

Confidence is magnified when luxurious Venus shifts into your sign on May 19. Through June 19, you’ll look and feel more beautiful and alluring, allowing you to be even more socially influential. If you’ve been itching to change jobs, a Sagittarius full moon on May 29 is just what the doctor ordered to zest up your career prospects. That newfound confidence is guaranteed to seal the deal.

 

Leo: Career 180

Brace yourself, Leo, your professional prospects are turning in a direction that seems completely random and unpredictable this month. Roads and bridges you’ve previously travelled will crumble, clearing past debris so that new beginnings can sprout and thrive into lush gardens. May will be an exciting month but not without its challenges; being ejected from your comfort zone could trigger stubborn resistance against change you didn’t choose. You’ll need to remain more flexible and open-minded than usual to maximize this powerful cycle’s positive aspects.

 

On May 15, a Taurus new moon in your Career Sector introduces enormous opportunity for progress in achieving practical professional goals. Uranus, planet of revolution and invention, enters Taurus and shifts into your Career Sector that same day, sparking a radical awakening in how you approach tackling career milestones. An urgent restlessness may set in, but despite this discomfort you’ll be keenly aware of what you should — and shouldn’t — be doing to achieve success.

 

Sudden opportunities to launch a new business could materialize, or you may be surprised with a promotion at your current job during the last two weeks of May. A full moon in friendly fire sign Sagittarius on May 29 aids in manifesting your higher calling in life. Expect the unexpected: Progress will look radically different than what you’ve envisioned.

 

Virgo: Woke

May is all about awakening with an independent, new perspective. But first, your most foundational personal philosophies will be turned upside-down. Tectonic shake-ups at the core of your spirituality may spark an internal rebellion against dogmatic belief systems, inspiring you to seek new spiritual outlets. Feed your soul by exploring esoteric interests (think: Tantra, tarot, astrology — it’s all on the table).

 

Uranus, planet of individuality, revolution, and invention, penetrates your 9th House of Philosophy on May 15; a Taurus new moon occurs on that same day, also in your 9th house. All this stimulation in your Philosophy Sector awakens a hunger to expand knowledge and broaden horizons. You could make a snap decision to enroll in a progressive or technology-based academic program. Sudden opportunities to travel abroad could also materialize, stoking your adventurous side.

 

Assertive Mars enters you 6th House of Health and Routine on May 16, punching up your energy to whip yourself into shape and focus on wellness. One hitch: You may come off as more aggressive or argumentative with colleagues and coworkers, so tread lightly in professional communications during the last half of the month.

 

Home and family matters demand your attention near May 29 when a Sagittarius full moon occurs in your domestic sector. You’re finally ready to wrap up a move or real-estate deal, but remember to keep calm in tense times: family drama may be brewing on the horizon.

 

Libra: Money + Sex

Financial planning might not have been your number-one priority in the past, but May is marked with a radical shift in money management guaranteed to empower you to get ahead. Opportunities to take control of your money through investments and wise decisions begin to flow near May 15 when a new moon in money-minded Taurus occurs in your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Shared Resources. Mid-month is an excellent time to begin working with a financial advisor or commit to a disciplined budget. Revolutionary Uranus also moves into luxuriant Taurus and your 8th House on May 15, signaling an urge to take bold financial risks. The more unconventional, the better: Investing in cryptocurrency, bitcoin, alternative agriculture, tech, and medicine are all favored by Uranus.

 

Sex becomes an intense urgency when red-hot Mars enters your 5th House of Pleasure on May 16. Erotic exploration brings you deeper into a relationship — casual or otherwise — but if you haven’t been consistently satisfied sexually, you may seek intimacy elsewhere. On May 19, Venus glides into your Career Sector, stimulating professional pursuits until June 13 and putting you in a powerful position to ask for a raise. What’s more, office romances and dalliances become more likely now, too. A fiery Sagittarius full moon on May 29 solidifies your top-dog status with superiors helping you manifest more money.

 

Scorpio: Falling Apart

A monumental shift in your primary relationship shakes up your world this month, Scorpio. May could very well level chaos and destruction in your personal life in order to make space for sturdier, more stable structures. Despite being one of the strongest and most intuitive signs of the zodiac, you won’t likely see these changes coming.

 

Revolutionary Uranus shifts into earthy Taurus and barrels into your Relationship Sector on May 15, delivering a radical and unexpected about-face to committed partnerships, marriages, and close relationships. Consider this a cosmic critical mass upturning the status quo: If things haven’t been flowing smoothly, a separation or break-up may be in order to achieve individual harmony. Alternatively, you may decide to stay together but open up your relationship to seeing other people or seeking new intimacy outside of the union. The complete flip side is that you deepen your commitment rather suddenly, surprising everyone with an elopement or engagement. A Taurus new moon falls in-step on May 15 also in your Relationship Sector, guaranteeing new beginnings.

 

Tension strikes at home when aggressive Mars moves into your 4th House of Family on May 16. Your best bet is channelling anger and frustration into a creative home-improvement project. The month ends on a fiery note with a Sagittarius full moon on May 29, empowering you to rise from the ashes like a phoenix.

 

Sagittarius: All Muscle

Big changes in your attitude on health and wellness are on the books for May. And thanks to all that newfound pep, you’ll also enjoy stunning opportunities to make professional progress. It all begins on May 15 when a grounded Taurus new moon lands in your 6th House of Health and Routine. New moons are all about new beginnings, and this one is picture perfect for embracing your proactive side. Consider joining a gym — and really going — hiring a personal trainer, or committing to nutritious dietary changes. This new moon is a double-whammy, placing you in an ideal position to shift gears into an entirely new job or snatch up additional work and clients. Revolutionary Uranus stages a rebellion in your 6th House that very same day, indicating that these changes are non-negotiable. Staying in your old rut will only hurt you, both in health and at work.

 

Mars blazes through your Communications Sector on May 16, sharpening your mind and your tongue. You’re in a strong place to cement negotiations of all kinds, so be vocal and ask for what you want. Assertiveness is a strength, but you may have a tendency to go overboard and become argumentative. Remember: This phase is about building bridges, not necessarily burning them down. Your own sensitivity gets a jolt at the end of the month, thanks to a tender full moon in your sign on May 29. Use the last days of May to rest and recuperate.  

 

Capricorn: Heart Eruptions

Your love life might be cruising through stagnant waters as the month begins, but don’t count on ending May in the same unsatisfying routine. Innovative Uranus stations in sibling Earth sign Taurus and begins trekking through your 5th House of Pleasure, Creativity, and Kids on May 15. Forming new attractions to eccentric thinkers and visionary types is par for the course. It’s possible you may even meet someone fascinating when you least expect it, embarking on a wild and exciting new love affair. Or, you may opt to open up your relationship and explore polyamory with your current partner. Fertility and parenting plays a key role in this aspect, so an unexpected pregnancy could surprise you this month. A Taurus new moon will also occur in your 5th House on the same day, pointing to new beginnings in all of these areas.

 

On May 19 Venus illuminates your Partnership Sector, sweetening the pot. Even more sudden and unexpected developments arise with Venus’ movements, especially when it comes to taking your relationship more seriously. Becoming engaged, moving in together, announcing a pregnancy or even eloping are all on the menu during the last weeks of May. By the end of the month, you’ll feel far more rooted in who you are and what you want out of your union thanks to an optimistic Sagittarius full moon on May 29.

 

Aquarius: Homeward Bound

Craving a change of scenery is par for the course in early May, although it may be a challenge to find peace and harmony amid all the influx at home. Not to worry, Aquarius: You’ve got your finger on the pulse of the future and aren’t afraid of a little chaos if it leads to progress.

 

On May 15 a Taurus new moon heeds your call for a fresh start at home, stimulating your 4th House of Home and Family. An exciting new beginning — like a move to a new home or city — is just the ticket, though your family dynamic might be rocked by the temporary instability. Your rebellious ruling planet, Uranus, shifts into cozy Taurus and into your Domestic Sector on May 15, bringing urgency to your home plans. Solid security and comfort are your goals, but they can only be achieved through embracing the chaos of a changing environment. Luckily, such a heavy influx of Taurus’ grounding energy at play will ensure you’re approaching each step logically.

 

Feisty Mars enters your sign on May 16, revving up your stamina to do what’s best for you and your family. Your take-no-prisoners attitude is ideal for checking off everything on your to-do list, but tread lightly: You might come off as arrogant or argumentative to those who’d otherwise be allies in the process. The month ends with a bold, optimistic Sagittarius full moon on May 29 illuminating all that you’ve manifested through hard work and determination — and a cozy castle, to boot.

 

Pisces: Stroke of Genius

Your mind is buzzing with thoughts that are radical even for your wild imagination as the month begins. The most shocking element? You’ll actually want to act on manifesting your ideas, rather than just daydreaming. Rebellious Uranus is the culprit, shifting into earthy Taurus and barreling through your Communications Sector on May 15, completely revolutionizing your mental patterns. A new moon in Taurus joins the party, giving you the leg-up on negotiations of all kinds. Thanks to this cosmic jolt in your Communications Sector, your words will be electric — and often unpredictable. But don’t worry, Pisces, spouting off spontaneously could actually benefit you. There’s a strong possibility you’ll be spending time around influencers and visionaries who are inspired by your fantastical ideas, and may even want to help make them reality.

 

Tender Venus begins transiting through your True Love Sector on May 19, delivering healing, nurturing energy to your love life. If you’re single, you may meet a new love through family or relatives. Committed Pisces might opt to bring their S.O. or partners into their family fold, or start a family of their own during this time. The month ends with a bold, optimistic Sagittarius full moon illuminating your Career Sector. You’ll have plenty of professional honors and achievements to celebrate in June.
