Welcome to May, brave Aries! At the end of April, you started the process of releasing some unhealthy habits. This is tough work for a fire sign like you, so make sure to pat yourself on the back. It’s important to be proud of yourself and how far you’ve come. On Monday, May 3, communication planet Mercury enters flirty Gemini and your 3rd House of Communication. During this transit, you’ll feel safe and secure in your relationships, and will feel encouraged to tell any partners or crushes how you feel. What’s more, you can expect some compliments to be coming your way. Despite your bold exterior, you have moments of insecurity, so try to remind yourself that you are worthy of love and attention.
May is massively important for your love life. On Saturday, May 8, lover planet Venus also enters charismatic Gemini and your 3rd House of Communication. This may manifest as what’s known as New Relationship Energy, or NRE. It’s a feeling akin to the butterflies in your stomach and the excitement surrounding new love, and you may be feeling it even if you’re single, or have been with your partner for a while. If you’re in a long-term relationship, now is an ideal time to plan dates, try new things in bed, and fall in love with your partner all over again. If you’re starting to see someone new, don’t worry too much about what comes next, and try not to get stuck overanalyzing each interaction. Just soak up the joy of the current moment. Yes, your communication house is lit up, but sometimes the most powerful thing to say is nothing.
A grounding new moon in Taurus on Tuesday, May 11, brings you back down to Earth. This dark night is a useful time to reflect on all the fun that you’ve been having and think about what you’ve enjoyed the most — and what you want to keep doing. Ruminate on how to bring more of that energy into your life.
Lucky planet Jupiter enters psychic Pisces and your 12th House of the Unconscious on Thursday, May 13. This transit helps us turn our dreams into reality. You may be manifesting your ideal relationship and your career at this very moment. You’ve never been accused of lacking ambition; rather, what you need most during this time is patience. You must learn to let relationships, both personal and professional, run their natural course without pushing anything along too much. Success does not happen overnight, even though it appears that way on social media sometimes.
