May 2021 horoscopes: A season for growth
Everything is in bloom right now, including you. This month will bring new opportunities, a new outlook, and new love interests. Just make sure you’re keeping your values in mind with every decision you make and don’t let your self-care slip too much or your body’s needs will slow you down.
April 20th - May 20th
During the early part of this month your love life will heat up, and you’ll enjoy some much-needed pleasure. The energy will shift a little later in the month when you become preoccupied with some opportunities that will require your signature tenacity and focus. Feeling truly needed for what you can provide is validating, but it also sometimes feels overly demanding. Remember to invest in self-care when you’re being pulled in all directions.
May 21st - June 20th
This month, you’ll experience exciting developments with regard to a plan you’ve set into motion recently. Your future is looking super bright. But don’t get ahead of yourself, as tempting as it may be. You still have to put in all the work if you’re going to bring your success to life. And that work starts with setting up a clear time management strategy. If this is a struggle for you, remember that others can help you come up with that strategy. And it’s important to bring your trusted people in on what you’re doing to ensure you’re able to be successful.
June 21st - July 22nd
There’s some extra magic awakening in your life right now, and it’s exciting to envision all the new possibilities that are opening up to you. Just be aware that while all the excitement is stoking a fire in you, that fire has the potential to turn into a hair-trigger temper this month. Remember to channel your energy towards productive pursuits rather than obsessing over the things you can’t control, especially between you and a partner. This is a really good time to dream big and to watch as the desires of your heart begin to manifest.
July 23rd - August 22nd
Though things continue to feel challenging in your love life this month, the good news is that you have extra luck in your corner for speaking your truth and actually being heard by your partner right now. That extra receptivity will help soften the edges of any difficult things that arise between you. Sex is also bound to be more emotionally intimate this month, as well as physically fulfilling, which could really help nourish you and your lover after all that you’ve been through lately.
August 23rd - September 22nd
Though this will be a busy month with lots of demands on you, you’ll also notice a new sense of openness to love emerging somewhere underneath it all. You are drawing multiple love interests towards you, and it may be hard to choose between them. The only glitch is that there may be some awkwardness when words don’t exactly feel like they’re flowing out of you with perfect grace. Though these interactions may have a slightly bumpy start, giving a few of your new love interests a fighting chance to get to know you may be well worth your time.
September 23rd - October 22nd
Even though your relationships tend to take up most of your focus, a work opportunity may emerge this month that could allow you to expand into your full potential, and you may feel the need to seize it. Your ability to create balance in all you apply yourself to is a definite asset for what’s coming your way. But just make sure you’re also finding balance in your own health, especially when you’re doing so much for others. If you don’t, your health may just force you to slow down this month.
October 23rd - November 21st
Though early this month it may feel like your progress is a little sluggish, by mid-month you can expect some increased momentum. You’ll feel a burst of energy and vision, and at the same time, some awesome new creative opportunities will show up for you. All the hard work you’ve done on yourself lately will finally pay off. Just remember to bring your partner in on your plans and visions for success. Your trusted inner circle wants to support you.
November 22nd - December 21st
You’re always going to pursue adventure in some way, shape, or form. Lately, your adventures have been primarily sexual. Though exploring new territory is fun for you, make sure you are keeping clear communication going with your partner, who may need a little more time to catch up to where you are. If you can find that mutual “hell yes,” then it’s all systems go.
December 22nd - January 19th
Though there may be some relationship difficulties coming up early this month, there is a growing intuition within you about the root cause of these specific troubles. You are feeling more sensitive lately, which you can use to tap into others’ experiences as well as express yourself with vulnerability. This month, you will finally make progress in dealing with the persistent problem areas between yourself and your loved one. And as a bonus, the sex will be especially intimate and pleasurable.
January 20th - February 18th
Lots of things in your life have been moving super fast lately, but this month, your focus will be on the slower-paced daily grind. Though that may not sound very glamorous, you will be able to see the positive results of your hustle very soon. And towards the end of the month, you may feel yourself gaining momentum, which will free up your time for more exciting and pleasurable pursuits.
February 19th - March 20th
If you’re feeling excited about some big things coming your way, you’re definitely right on the money. The middle of the month will send you a burst of opportunity and expansion, and you are more than likely to be in the right place at the right time to receive it. Things may be a little less clear towards the end of the month, though, so be cautious with how quickly you take a leap of faith on any given idea. Remember that your best results are going come from working both opportunity and strategy.
March 21st - April 19th
This month, you’ll be asking yourself why everybody is so “sticky” right now. You may feel like you’re treading on feelings a little too easily, and it can’t be all your fault. Yes, the sensitivity of the people around you may be high, and you can’t help that, but you can channel your more direct and fiery energy towards a physical outlet. It’s a good time to up your physical activity level (both in and out of the bedroom).
