It’s a busy time of year for you, Sagittarius. Taurus season always is. Taurus is the sign that overlooks your house of daily routine. This can have witchy, ritualistic implications, but on a basic level, the beginning of the month is a time to think about work, or whatever you do on a day-to-day basis.
There is a new moon in Taurus on the first weekend of the month, falling on Saturday, May 4. The new moon could signal a beginning or end of a chapter at work. Whatever it is you’re ushering in at the start of the month is helping you to move towards material and financial stability. Your daily goings-on are major topics of discussion once Mercury enters Taurus on Monday, May 6. This sign likes to eat and rest, so consider how you make space in your schedule for meals and sleep. Mercury in Taurus learns through lived experience, so don’t just think about what you need — do something about it.
You’ll get pleasure out of your day-to-day when Venus, the planet of love and beauty, goes home to Taurus on Wednesday, May 15. Work life is more enjoyable under this influence. Incorporate something luxurious into your beauty rituals by taking care of your skin and lips in a new, glamorous way.
It will feel grounding to focus on taking care of your body and your health. With aggressive Mars entering Cancer, which also happens on Wednesday, May 15, you may feel like putting your guard up. There is an increased sensitivity and touchiness about what other people want from you during this time. Combat the idea that you're being left out by putting yourself and your needs first. Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing.
There's a lot of mental activity around the emotionally energetic full moon in Scorpio on Saturday, May 18, illuminating your house of slumber and seclusion. You will feel a pull towards your inner world at this time, so spend the weekend taking care of yourself. Sit with your thoughts and feelings. Be aware that this full moon may cause you to feel a bit suspicious — Scorpio reads deep below the surface, sometimes projecting meaning that isn't even there. Try to remain objective, perhaps using your sparkling Sagittarius optimism to seek out the best in others.
The end of May is more about others than it is about your work schedule. When the sun moves into Gemini on Tuesday, May 21, your focus shifts from work to the people you work so hard for. With the planet of communication, Mercury, joining the sun on the same day, you are going to have a fresh, authentic understanding of the relationships in your life.
In ancient Hellenistic astrology, Venus corresponds with the lips. When Venus enters Taurus, it will be occupying your house of daily routine. Don't forget your mouth when you're going through your skin rituals this month. We recommend using a mask like Patchology’s FlashPatch Lip Gels, which use a plethora of hydrating ingredients like green tea and honey to nourish your lips in just minutes.
