May 2022 horoscopes: Bring the heat

Finding your spark has never been easier

As April slides into May, things are starting to heat up. Watch as your passion for life reignites, bringing your goals and desires back into focus.


April 20th - May 20th
You may have been playing it safe lately, mostly because so many changes outside of your control have been happening. This month will ignite your desire to take a more active, grab-life-by-the-horns approach that will definitely include your love life. If there’s been a special somebody who you’ve had your eye on, and you’ve been too shy to approach…now’s your time to shine!


May 21st - June 20th
The phase of murky communication you’ve been stuck in will continue for the first part of this month, but mid-month things will shift from confusion into action. You’ll find yourself feeling fired up and focused on putting a big new plan in motion, and the added fire may have you moving, talking, and acting with little patience for the input of others. This could come back to haunt you at the end of the month if you make mistakes due to not seeking out the input of those around you.


June 21st -July 22nd
This month, you’ll be feeling energized to take on new challenges. You’re going to be less sensitive than normal and able to give as good as you get. Your love life will also become more expressive and playful during this time. It’s all fun and games until the end of the month, when you would be wise to bring back some of your usual sensitivity in order to mitigate potential miscommunications.


July 23rd - August 22nd
This month will bring big fiery vibes, and you’ll be ready to get out there and take center stage at social events again. You’ve been doing a ton of inner work lately, which will help you when it comes to assessing whether or not all the new opportunities coming your way are for you or not. Just be careful when dotting your i’s and crossing your t’s because missed details could come back to bite you at the very end of the month.


August 23rd - September 22nd
Tempers will be running high this month as you find yourself feeling forced into sudden decisions. It may seem like others are imposing their leadership and calling all the shots, while you’d rather take more time to assess all the options before you commit to anything. By the end of the month, your call for caution may prove to have been wise counsel, especially when some big mistakes show the flaws in others’ approach.


September 23rd - October 22nd
If you’ve been seeking a new love interest, this month will bring a special somebody into your life. Their style is likely to be full steam ahead, and you will love their confidence. If you’re already partnered, this month will ignite a fresh romantic fire between you. Either way, be careful not to let others ride roughshod over you this month, which is always a possibility when your peaceful, placid nature gets paired with a stronger personality. 


October 23rd - November 21st
Recent emotional bonding with a special somebody has set the stage for deepening intimacy, and you are enjoying your time with them between the sheets. The sex is energetic and potent, but the same inferno that’s contributing to great time in bed may also contribute to clashes of opinion outside of the bedroom, especially toward the end of the month. It’s a good idea to cool off and take some space when things get too heated.


November 22nd - December 21st
Your plans will come to fruition this month as an explosion of fiery energy moves what was once stagnant into action. The adventure you’ve been planning will finally happen, and while you’ll be over the moon, is everybody else who’s involved as prepared as you are? Your zest for life could be frustrated by delays, causing you to have to adjust the plan as you wait for others to get it together.


December 22nd - January 19th
If you’ve been contemplating making some changes lately, this is the month to finally take action. There’s a fire under you urging you to move away from the old and on to the new, and this impulse will affect everything, including your love life. If you’re partnered, you and your love will likely explore some new endeavors (wink wink) together. If you’re dating, you are likely to attract somebody more fiery than your typical type during this time.


January 20th - February 18th
Things have been feeling slow and stagnant for you lately, but you will finally find a new pace this month. This will be helpful in moving you towards your goals and clearing out obstacles that have kept you from getting where you need to go. The fresh confidence this brings will likely help you in all areas of life, from work to romance. Others may look to you for help at the end of the month, so prepare to be on call for your community come the 31st.


February 19th - March 20th
If you’ve been doing deep emotional work with a new partner, this is the month that will make it all worthwhile. You want to take action in the world, and your relationship will support you in doing so. As you both move towards the changes you want to create, make sure you’re not overly romanticizing things, and that you’re paying attention to the details. Otherwise, things could come crashing down at the end of the month.


March 20th - April 19th
This month is finally your time to shine! You will feel like you have the golden touch in every part of your life. This definitely includes your love life, where you’ll be drawing in fresh energy through an exciting new love interest or a new burst of passion between you and your partner. Just don’t let your enthusiasm about all that is happening cause you to overlook other people’s needs and feelings.
