But before we divulge any more predictions, keep scrolling to find out what May has in store for you, the surprises you might encounter, and more!


April 20th – May 20th

With Uranus sliding into your sign on May 15th, this month is bound to bring some surprises. It’ll be a good testing point to finally pursue what you’ve been looking for and stop making excuses. On top of that, it’s also your birthday month, and Jupiter and Venus are ready to sync up on the 25th for a successful celebration amongst friends. Don’t forget the Sagittarius full moon on the 29th which will help ease some uncertainty and bring you onto a new path of Uranus making changes for the year to come.


May 21st – June 20th

Now before your birthday celebrations take off, we’ve got some homework for you dear Geminis. It’s time to get creative and imaginative and let the brain juices flow. In the love department, we want you to create some closure with anyone that’s not worth your time, but don’t worry the Sagittarius full moon is there to assist. If you’re not quite following, that’s okay, the Taurus new moon on May 15th and the sun in your sign on the 20th will help get some clarity of it all.


June 21st – July 22nd

At times you tend to prefer to stay home instead of attending a networking event or spontaneously going out on the town, but we think it’s time for a little change. As with your pals, Uranus will come give you a nudge on May 15th and help you engage more with your social group, whether it’s to organise a week night event or brunch on a Saturday. We know you like to take care of yourself, but everyone needs a little support and company from time to time, right? This will also take your mind off of your general routine from which we know you’re looking for a way out, so be patient!


July 23rd – August 22nd

Work hard and play hard may be one of your mottos, but it seems that you might be doing more playing. We get it, and luckily for you, your career zone is about to get a makeover come May 15th by pointing you in a different professional direction. Perhaps it’s also time to take some more mature and forward-looking decisions, so how about taking a look at your finances and thinking a few years ahead? A little planning never hurt anybody and it will keep you busy while you’re looking for your next career move.


August 23rd – September 22nd

You’re the kind of personal that books their holiday in advance, takes care of all the details, and that doesn’t stop in the leisure department. Romance-wise, you prefer to play it safe which often results in not playing at all – but this month we want you to test out the waters and be more open. Take up that invitation to a far away destination someone else has been planning, and agree to get matched with that friend of your co-worker she thinks you’d get along with. After all, you’ve only got one life!


September 23rd – October 22nd

It’s all about love and career for you this month – you like to share, but sometimes it can get too much so we recommend setting some boundaries and leave some mystery. Uranus will come sweeping in to make some changes, but don’t worry, it won’t be anything too drastic, we’re talking baby steps. This next move will have your intuition on high alert which will come just in time when Jupiter and Neptune sync up to push you in the direction of a career move. Whether it’s a raise, promotion or an interesting project, trust your gut.


October 23rd – November 21st

Brace yourself fellow Scorpios because this month will be heavy on the romance and relationship department. It feel as though we’re 3 months late, that’s why we recommend having a chat with a friend or confidante about your upcoming endeavours. To give you some insight, Mars will enter your emotions zone in mid-May, followed by Jupiter who will be your lucky star at the end of the month and will lift your mood and spirits. Try to keep an open and positive attitude and not always expect the worst – that’s usually a good way to start.


November 22nd – December 21st

While for your fellow zodiac signs, it’s all about career and romance this month, we want you to focus on relationships and mainly spending time with your family and/or significant other. Once you’ve set aside some quality time, it’s time to establish some routine in your daily grind. After all, summer is right around the corner and we’d like you to lay out some ground work in order to enjoy Summer Fridays. Lastly, try to squeeze in some me time by booking a much-needed massage or palm reading – you’ll be a brand new person by the time the full moon lands on the 29th.


December 22nd – January 19th

It doesn’t help that everything happens online nowadays, but when reaching for your smartphone and checking emails and Instagram as soon your alarm rings is the first thing you do, you know it’s time to take a break. Why not establish a no technology and screen zone in your bedroom? The beginning of the month will be stressful but we guarantee that as soon as May 15th comes around, it’s time to take things down a notch. Use the new moon on that day and your lucky planets on the 25th to go and explore – a little charm can go a long way and we can’t wait to see what you discover!


January 20th – February 18th

Do you feel like you’ve got a million things on your to-do list and it’s only just the beginning of the month? Same here, but ticking off one task per day will alleviate the stress. Uranus will move into Taurus on May 15th which will mark a turning point in your sign which will bring some change but also a fresh and new perspective to the way you look and handle things. Expect changes in your home, relationships and career. Nothing too drastic, don’t worry. When Mars comes into your sign on the 16th, it will give you a boost of energy to accomplish what we mentioned earlier.


February 19th – March 20th

It’s that time of the year Pisces, where the relationships you’re currently involved in might not be the healthiest, or contribute to your well-being in general. So why not speak your mind, be communicative and take some decisions at who should remain in your tight-knit network and who isn’t worth your time. If you’re unsure how to approach this, the new moon will help guide you in the right direction, and the planets aligning on May 25th will prepare you for an upcoming holiday so you better pencil in a couple vacation days ASAP!


March 21st – April 19th

You’re in the same boat as your pal Pisces, which means only one thing and that’s making yourself clear and heard in your relationships. Whether it’s your colleague at work whose attitude you dislike or a silent argument with your significant other, it’s always better to talk it out instead of holding it in. If you need some help in that department, wait for new moon to come around on May 15th. Uranus will also make an appearance into your money towards the end of the month which will get you thinking about a new job you’ve been eyeing or a part-time position you might be interested in.
