Horoscopes for May 2022


CapricornDec. 22 to Jan. 19 – This eclipse season is shaking up your creativity, social life, and relationships with your loved ones. Exciting new friendship prospects are emerging, while simultaneously, trusted old friends and community just aren’t hitting the mark in the same way they used to. But this is okay—sometimes people just grow away from the things they used to love. The lunar eclipse on May 16th will give you a final nudge to walk away from a kind of social obligation that is no longer satisfying. Meanwhile, things at home are growing and changing as expansion planet Jupiter moves into Aries on the 10th for an extended stay through October. With Venus, Mars, and Jupiter all piling up in the Ram’s sign this month, so you have the chance to catch your breath and work on upgrading your foundation. Plant that garden, paint your room, and soak up every afternoon tea break. Peace is always available if you give it space.

Aquarius Jan. 20 to Feb. 18 – Eclipse season is in full swing as the month begins and the only constant is change—how ironic. Both your home life and your career prospects are in flux, and you’re being forced to make huge—dare I say—life-changing decisions left and right. Things ramp up even more at the lunar eclipse on the 16th when a boost to your status or reputation leaves someone else feeling disappointed. Handling the situation with grace is what proves you’re really coming into your position as a leader. Also, Jupiter’s shift into Aries on the 10th is keeping you very busy. Your connections and communications are expanding, and you feel like what’s available in your school, work, or social community is growing, as well. There’s more opportunity to connect with friends, both new and old, amidst the rest of the chaos.

PiscesFeb. 19 to March 20 – Eclipse season is shaking up some of your plans for self-healing and growth, but improving relationships with those closest to you and solidifying mentorships will assist you in stabilizing the parts of your life that currently feel tumultuous. The lunar eclipse in Scorpio on the 16th has big graduation energy for you. It’s bittersweet, but either literally, metaphorically, or both, you will be donning your cap and gown and moving on to your next exciting chapter. Meanwhile, your ruling planet Jupiter enters Aries, and your money sector on the 10th, bringing you more resources than you’ve had in a long time. Both your financial freedom and your energy are at a high, which is inspiring you to take on more responsibilities both at work and at home. Just remember to pace yourself during this time, because you know all too well how fast the adrenaline can turn into burnout.

AriesMarch 21 to April 20 – Eclipse season means that some rocky roads lie ahead, especially in financing and budgeting. Whether you’re leaving a steady job to pursue something that you truly love or trying to create a monthly budget, there are many moving parts, and the situation is becoming unmanageable. Though your energy is at a low, remember that this current state of overwhelm is a phase that will eventually pass. With Jupiter moving into your sign on the 10th and your ruling planet Mars following suit on the 24th, you’ll be feeling much more like yourself come the end of the month. Don’t get discouraged if it feels like nothing’s working out yet, because you’re on the path to making a huge impact.

TaurusApril 21 to May 21 – The solar eclipse on April 30th was a doozy for you. It may have aligned with health complications, wardrobe malfunctions or a straight up identity crisis, so luckily May lets you slip into a cocoon in order to begin a literal or metaphorical rebirthing process. With your ruling planet Venus dipping into your unconscious sector on the 2nd, and Jupiter joining for an extended stay on the 10th, it’s ideal that you take some time to remove yourself as you sort through issues that have been holding you back from achieving your dreams. Don’t rest for too long though, because the lunar eclipse on the 16th brings relationship dramas to a quick and dirty conclusion. Even if this eclipse leaves your heart aching, the accompanying clarity is priceless. This month will end on a very sweet note, as Venus enters your sign in a few weeks for some lifestyle upgrades and tons of adoring compliments.

GeminiMay 22 to June 20 – The changes you’re moving through are subtle. This comes as a relief after the last few years of major personal and relationship upheavals which left you wondering if/when things would ever calm down. Jupiter’s shift into Aries on the 10th is particularly auspicious for you as it lights up the part of your chart that deals with friendship, community, and networking of all kinds. Though your ruling planet Mercury also stations retrograde in your sign on the 10th, this speaks less of a personal delay and more of a moment to refine the way you’re communicating your desires and ambitions. This means great energy for updating your website, revising your resumé, or Marie Kondo-ing your closet. By the new moon in your sign on the 30th, you’re simultaneously exhausted and refreshed—like the high you get after a challenging but exhilarating workout. Make sure to rest for a moment, then get ready to take on the next challenge.

CancerJune 21 to July 22 – As a child of the moon, eclipse season is especially tumultuous for you.

LibraSept. 23 to Oct. 22 – Relationships are the name of the game this month, which brings a deep satisfaction to your romantic and connection-hungry heart.

After years of deep foundational work, months of getting your health on track, and continued emphasis on prioritizing your own joy, you’re finally ready to commit to a lasting kind of love, whether that be with a platonic friend, a romantic partner, or just something you love in general—it doesn’t have to be with a person. Meanwhile, the lunar eclipse on May 16th may bring some shake ups to your financial which will keep you grounded. Opportunities to earn more are coming your way at a rapid pace.

How you define yourself may feel like it’s becoming smaller, but really it’s getting sculpted and more refined as time goes on. The lunar eclipse on the 16th may bring you some upsets or ego bruises but will also bring closure to a can of worms that was opened way back in November. Meanwhile, relief and restoration can be found in your daily routines, such as going for afternoon runs, finding more ease in your workflow, or taking some time to read your favorite books.

SagittariusNov. 22 to Dec. 21 – Compared to the chaos of 2020 and 2021, the shifts of this current eclipse season have been refreshingly subtle.
