When the people around you give you advice this May, Aries, you must listen to them. I know this is a weird piece of advice to receive—“listen to advice”—but we both know you often disregard other’s thoughts when you feel that you know better. Hear what your loved ones have to say when you seek them out to vent. They might just have the solutions you need.
Though I know you love the light of a good fire, it’s time to stop burning bridges every time things fall apart. You can never be sure when you’re going to need to reignite a relationship, be that professional, personal, or otherwise. Taurus, it’s possible to forgive and let go quietly. Your default reaction to interpersonal strife shouldn’t be to cut people off completely. You can’t live like that.
We both know your memory isn’t the best, Gemini. You have a lot going on in your life and it can be hard to keep track of it all. But this month especially, you’ll want to try and make all of your appointments, remember the stories that your friends tell you. If you haven’t tried journaling as a way of recordkeeping before, May is the time to start.
Cancer, please remember that happiness is not a magical destination you can arrive at and be done with it. No emotion exists in one solid place, and no person can stay in the same position forever. With that being said, you mustn’t give up hope. You shouldn’t stop reaching for joy, but if it leaves don’t convince yourself that it’s due to your actions. Life is fickle–you can’t change that.
The world outside of your windows and walls has been calling to you. It’s easy to get caught up in the non-tangible–digital media and relationships and ghosts that haunt your brain. But there’s a natural reset button only steps away. Try to spend some time in nature this May. Employ your senses and breathe in this planet. Your problems will grow smaller in its wake.
This May, you must be clear and concise with the people in your life, Virgo. If you have any issues that need addressing, make sure to state them as clearly as possible. Misunderstanding is an inevitability; meanings often become confused in the maze of language, but now more than ever you must be direct if you want to avoid negative ramifications.
Do not get so distracted by joy that you forget to take care of the little things. After a difficult start to your year, Libra, any amount of good news will be enough to claim your attention completely. But don’t get complacent in the wake of success. There will always be another hill to climb, and you have to be prepared for whatever it asks of you. Celebrate, yes, but within reason.
There’s no need to rush, Scorpio. You still have time to do everything you want to do, and if you try to fast forward through the mundane it’ll only lead to mistakes. It’s a tired phrase, but “quality over quantity” is something to keep in mind this May. Focus on each to-do list task with equal patience and care. I promise, it won’t be like this forever.
You don’t need to worry about how others perceive you, Sagittarius—it is only the people you choose to cherish that really matter. If your attention is always centered on the negative, it leaves very little room in your heart for love to bloom. You will be happier and more content if you stop looking for the approval of strangers and begin nurturing compassion for your loved ones.
Alone time is more valuable than you realize, Capricorn. May will demand a lot from you in terms of social activities. You’ll be required to put energy into pleasing others, leaving less room for your own self. Make a point to prioritize yourself, even when you’re tired and especially when it’s hard. Otherwise, you’ll be headed towards burnout.
Connecting with your inner child isn’t reserved for therapy or times of grief. There is real joy in reflecting upon the person you once were and healing your heart. Aquarius, spend time this May thinking about your past. Do not judge yourself for how you reacted to situations before knowing better and instead show yourself grace. You deserve it.
Life is too short to wait around for the perfect moment, Pisces. Let May be the month where you jump into new projects headfirst. This is the time to start a hobby or fresh routine and attempt confidence in your work and home life. There are plenty of opportunities for happiness awaiting you, all you have to do is reach out and grab them.
