Aries (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19)
This year so far, you’ve been feeling a lot more confident and capable. Something that’s not common practice for you – typically, you’re found knee deep in self-inflicted drama and self-destructive habits, but you’ve grown privy to your old ways and are now deviating from them. The end result is a happier, healthier you who’s ready to take on the world and all the toxic people who reside in it. Recently, you’ve been taking big steps toward a better life for yourself – this may be in the form of looking for a new job, a new place to live, a new group of friends or even a new romantic conquest. While these are all good signs for change, it also brings a lot of opportunities to fall through the cracks and relapse. Make sure this confidence is ridden carefully. After all, you’re not a very good surfer and these are fairly big swells for a beginner.
Taurus (Apr. 20 – May 20)
As of recently, what you knew to be home doesn’t feel as secure or familiar as it used to be. This could be due to a variety of factors such as a recent dispute, a recent surrounding tragedy, bad news or just as a result from interpersonal growth. This isn’t something that usually upsets you, but something about what’s happened has got you feeling something you’re not used to feeling. This would be a good time to assemble the dream team of supportive friends you’ve got to help you figure out why you’re feeling so unusually somber. If you don’t, you’re prone to a depressive episode – and with it being so close to summer, you risk spending your summer break underneath a self-imposed rock.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
The confidence that filled your spirit a few months back is now starting to slowly drip out of you. It’s likely you walked into a situation (or maybe a few) feeling that you had what it takes to come out ahead of any and all competition, only to find that the belief was just a tad inflated. Maybe you didn’t get a job despite feeling perfect for it, you didn’t nail the first date like you thought you did or didn’t leave as good of a first impression as you felt. Despite what your feelings are telling you, this doesn’t quite mark the end of the world. In fact, maybe it’s a sign that your ego deserves a little humbling after that steady streak of success. This May, you’ll get to see whether you humble yourself too much or not enough.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
These past few weeks have been nothing short of surprising for you, Cancer. You’ve boldly been taking your life by the reigns and steering yourself toward a direction that no one, including yourself, expected. You’ve stood your ground, you’ve called people on the carpet and you’ve asked the tough questions. You’ve pursued and you’ve conquered, and this has changed your outlook on life by a great deal. Whether the view through this new lens is a good one or not depends on what your next move is next month. Remember now, a large portion of what happens to you is within your control.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
You’ve been a little short with those around you. You’re not sure why, but lately you’ve felt like you’re growing a little big for your surroundings and that things need to change – and quickly. You’ve always been a little quick to grow tired of routine, but you’ve felt that your recent change of heart is a tad fast – even for you. Before making any major decisions based off these strong feelings and risking hurting those you love, be sure to evaluate all possible outside influences that could be pushing you to feel this way. For all you know, it could be a deeper issue manifesting itself through what you’re currently feeling. Self-evaluation is key here. Your happiness this May depends on it.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Recently, you’ve been feeling rushed to make a lot of important, life-altering decisions in a short amount of time. For most people, this would be enough to award them a short-stay in an insane asylum, but you’re handling it surprisingly well. Maybe it’s the experience you gained from all the impulsive and stressful decisions you’ve made in the past. Or, it could be that you’ve just gotten used to throwing caution into the wind and making decisions that seem to have your support system questioning what’s gotten into you. Regardless of where you are in terms of careful decision making, be sure you’ve got everyone’s best interest in mind – not just your own. In May, you’ll find out just what kind of drama you’ll be getting yourself in or out of.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
You’ve recently gotten news so good, it’s made you a little more impulsive than you usually are. This may take the shape of a purchase that will take you more than just a few paychecks to pay off, a date you’d normally say no to or to a commitment that might end up leaving a bad taste in your mouth once the mania wears off. You’re used to digging yourself out of financial impulsiveness or the occasional bad decision, but maybe this bite was a little more than you’re capable of chewing. Before you brush this off as just another act of “treating yo self,” be sure you make a special visit to Logic and Reason.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Lately, you’ve been feeling like you’re in a box, sealed away from the world. You could swear you can hear the world both evolving and revolving without you while you’re stuck in one spot, for what feels to you like an eternity. While this may seem like another depressive episode to you, are you sure it’s not just impatience or anxiety? The finish line for you is so close and your emotions are running so high that you feel a convoy of strong emotions spilling into your psyche. Before just chalking it up to something that needs to be worried about or treated with pills, be sure you make room for self-appreciation. You’ve hauled yourself this far, Scorpio, don’t give into your demons when you’re so close to where you want to be. May will either redefine what a healthy mentality is or reinforce a negative one. It will all depend on how you choose to deal with what’s going on.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Guilt seems to have played a central part of your thought processes these last couple of weeks. You can’t really seem to name what is causing you to feel this way and you’ve never been one to believe in coincidences, so you’re absolutely determined to figure this out. Instead of waiting for the answer to fall out of the sky and onto your lap, why not do some investigative work and call the few that you’re especially close to? Maybe, just maybe, you’ll learn about something you did or said that translated in a way you didn’t intend. This May, depending on how diligent you are, you’ll find out whether or not that guilt was well-founded or a fluke.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 18)
There have been a lot of feelings being mixed up in that brilliant mind of yours as of late. You’ve made a lot of discoveries within yourself that leave you feeling as though you’re looking at yourself from the outside and it’s something you haven’t experienced in a very long time. Usually, this is brought on when you feel overwhelmed by the several things you’re constantly trying to juggle. With summer approaching, it’s strongly advised that you get back in touch with what makes you the happiest; what’s been on your plate for a while now has taken that away from you. Remember, a lot of your sanity is within your control. In May, you will gain some insight into just how much control you have.
Aquarius (Jan. 19 – Feb. 18)
It doesn’t feel like it quite yet, but you’re moving a little quicker than you should be. You feel ready to move on with your life and the pursuit of your goals, which is great – but it sets you up to miss fundamental milestones. While looking forward is an excellent way to find out the exact steps you need to take to get there, it can also distract you from what needs to be done in the present. Be careful not to lose sight on what’s beyond, Aquarius. Right now, your focus needs to be on taking one step at a time as opposed to a giant leap. In May, you’ll get a chance to see where your devoted efforts will take you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)
It’s been tough for you to explain to people (when you’re usually so good with words) exactly what it feels like to be you right now. Though you’ve never had a problem rolling with the punches and doing the boring work that needs to be done, you seem to be feeling like there’s something you’re not doing enough of. Have you been neglectful of your close relationships? Have you been slacking when it comes to important tasks? Have you been a little too selfless, perhaps? Your usually uncanny sense of self-awareness isn’t usually this confused. Worry not, Pisces, as with time, you’ll come to terms with what’s going on. May will most definitely give you stronger hints if you haven’t figured it out by then.
