Welcome to May, Scorpio! Last month you examined your relationship with jealousy. Do you let it motivate you, or does it just hold you back? Communication planet Mercury enters talkative Gemini and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Rebirth on Monday, May 3. This transit once again encourages you to let go of unhealthy habits. Make room for kind and transparent communication with your partner, crush, or lovers.
Following the theme above, on Saturday, May 8, lover planet Venus joins Mercury in Gemini and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Rebirth. You have some trust issues, Scorpio, and it can cause you to keep your guard up. It’s time to examine whether your walls are protecting you or keeping people out that you want in your life. However, this is easier said than done, and if trust is hard for you, consider working with a therapist to help process lasting trauma. The calming new moon in grounded Taurus on Tuesday, May 11 offers a chance to create new beginnings and healthier communication patterns.
On Thursday, May 13, lucky planet Jupiter enters dreamy Pisces and your 5th House of Pleasure. Circle this date in your calendar, intense Scorpio, because life is about to get sexier. You sometimes pride yourself on how complicated you are, but this reputation can also keep you living in darkness. Now, you may find there are more opportunities to make more money and manifest your dream relationship. Life events that once felt out of reach are suddenly in grasp. Make sure to take care of your mental health so that you are able to receive these blessings.
Get ready to bask in the sun, dear Scorpion, because social Gemini season begins on Thursday, May 20. Being away from loved ones during the pandemic has taken a toll. As the vaccine rolls out and the weather warms, more people are safely spending time together. Saturn goes retrograde from Sunday, May 23 to Sunday, October 10, asking all of us to create healthy boundaries around socialization. Don’t rush yourself, but make time for friends while staying safe.
Stay in and do something for yourself, such as cook dinner or lounge around and watch television, during the full moon and lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on Wednesday, May 26. Eclipses can act like cosmic wild cards. They are a time of unexpected drama, and you, Scorpio, are trying to live life more peacefully. May ends with Mercury retrograde starting on Saturday, May 29. Don’t give in to the temptation to text an ex. Make sure to double-check all emails and texts, and you’ll make it through just fine. See you in June.
