Monthly Calendar September 2024

Your Monthly Horoscopes: May 2024

Welcome to May! Spring is here and Taurus season is in full bloom with the Sun, Venus and Jupiter all hanging out in the fixed earth sign. Taurus energy is calm and reliable, sensuous and patient. Simple pleasures are a welcome salve after the crisis and tumult that was April, but the slow burn of it all brings frustration. Now that everything feels better, shouldn’t it all be working out?! Patience isn’t easy, but it’s required, especially once Mercury finally leaves hotheaded Aries (where it’s been since mid-March!) and joins the picnic in Taurus on the 15th making slow, deliberate communication the norm. Watch out for a tendency toward perfectionism and rumination under this influence.

The New Moon in Taurus on the 7th is for grounding rituals and intention setting. I’m planning on grabbing some fresh flowers and making a charcuterie board myself, and encourage you to do the same, maybe with a nice glass of natural wine? Or a phony Negroni if that’s more your style.

Circle the 18th in your calendar for hot dates and good news. Romantic plot twists and serendipitous delights arrive this day as Venus collides with shocking Uranus just as the Sun meets up with Jupiter (an aspect thought of as the “luckiest day of the year”). Another day to highlight is the 23rd, the day of the Full Moon in Sagittarius, happening at the same time as Venus kisses Jupiter in the final degree of Taurus. Sweetness, wish fulfillment and a little bit of mischief are something to look forward to.

Gemini season kicks off on the 20th and we quickly swerve off the country road and onto the superhighway. Venus moves into Gemini on the 23rd and Jupiter joins the party on the 25th. Get ready for deep philosophical insights alongside galaxy brain nonsense. Despite all the frenetic energy, there’s something glamorous about the way the month ends though. Think Don Draper in Mad Men (famously a Gemini), completely unprepared for the pitch meeting yet knocking it out of the park anyway. Everything clicking all at once.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

April’s supercharged astrology was particularly taxing on your mind and body, and May is here to soothe your pains and calm your nerves. (Though with your ruling planet Mars spending all month in your sign, you still need to be extra careful around overheating). Focusing on simple pleasures like home cooked meals, tidying your space and cultivating a new skill or hobby might seem indulgent, but it’s the medicine you need. A necessary boost to your finances arrives on the 18th or 23rd and brings a mindset shift around money. This is about more than just an increasing bank balance though. The goal of May is to own your worth. Say it with me: “I deserve it all.”

Love Horoscope: Romance is high this month with both Venus and Jupiter in sensual Taurus, and this influence has you tempted to shower all the people you love (from your partner to that crush you barely know) with gifts. Venus’ move into Gemini on the 23rd has you less focused on money and sex, and more on good conversation.

Money Horoscope: Much of this month is about both your money and your self-worth, and you’re feeling particularly inspired to ask for a raise around the new moon in Taurus on the 7th. This influence could also encourage a shopping spree though. Before you click buy, consider the financial goals of you six months from now.

Aries Compatibility: The Best and Worst Zodiac Matches

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

New Moon in Taurus (5/7): New moon, new you

Full Moon in Sagittarius (5/23): Heavy realizations come to the surface

Other Key Dates: 5/1, 5/13, 5/25

May is for feeling yourself. Both your style and your self-esteem get a major upgrade throughout the month, and this is a great time to take a risk on a new hair, makeup or wardrobe choice you’ve wanted to try, especially around the 18th. Despite all the good vibes though, this is also a pretty intense birthday month for you as the full moon in Sagittarius brings repressed feelings and secrets to the surface. That being said, make sure you’re not spending your whole therapy session talking about someone else’s drama (even your partner’s). Prioritize your own catharsis as much as you prioritize your glow up.

Love Horoscope: You may begin May still feeling aftershocks of that full moon in Scorpio which brought old relationship issues back up to the surface. Though you’re personally feeling good, your partner might be stressed, and if you’re single, you might be finding it hard to connect. Let go of baggage when you can and remember this is just a phase. It won’t be forever.

Money Horoscope: After a few rocky months for your bank account, Mercury’s entrance into your sign on the 15th lets you take the reins back on your spending. Venus enters your money sector on the 23rd followed by Jupiter on the 25th introducing both immediate ease and long term improvement for your finances.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

New Moon in Taurus (5/7): Start a meditation practice

Full Moon in Sagittarius (5/23): Hard launch a new relationship

Other Key Dates: 5/13, 5/15, 5/17, 5/27, 5/31

May brings some of 2024’s best astrology, but for you, this is all playing out in the part of your chart that deals with the unconscious. What’s happening now is less about you personally and more about the needs of the collective. Your time is best spent on rest, recuperation and meditation this month, as well as on behind the scenes work so that you can launch something that really matters in June. Once your season begins on the 20th life kicks into high gear and puts you in the spotlight. Take a break so you can meet that moment with all the energy you’ve got.

Love Horoscope: March and April were months for circulating, meeting someone new through friends or reconnecting with a partner from the past. The first half of the month continues this trend, but once Mercury enters slow and deliberate Taurus on the 15th, you’re ready to keep to yourself, or cozy up with one partner ,and put dating on the back burner.

Money Horoscope: The new moon in Taurus on the 7th could bring up financial anxieties. Your increased social activity in the early part of spring hasn’t been easy on your bank account. Job offers, gig opportunities and long term contracts around the full moon in Sagittarius on the 23rd will bring solutions.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

New Moon in Taurus (5/7): Volunteering at a local farm or nature center

Full Moon in Sagittarius (5/23): Schedule all those appointments you’ve been putting off

Other Key Dates: 5/18, 5/19, 5/23

Over the past year you’ve been blessed with many opportunities to expand your reach, connect with the community, and realize your dreams. All of this effort reaches a culmination this month as you mount a big show, launch a project or move into the next phase of your career. Your hard work has paid off, but the constant socializing and pressure to always be on has taken its toll. Gemini season is always your most introverted time of year and with Jupiter also moving into Gemini for the next year on the 25th, this signals both short term cocooning and a long term focus on rest as the month concludes.

Love Horoscope: You’ve gotten as far as you have this year through the support of partners, lovers and all your besties. Love is everywhere, and if you’re single, you might meet someone out and about. Keep your eyes peeled at a bestie’s book launch or your favorite coworker’s birthday party.

Money Horoscope: Abundance is flowing for you this month, especially around the 18th, which is a very auspicious time to ask for a raise, or talk to your boss about delegating some of your work responsibilities. Once Gemini season begins on the 20th, you enter your cocoon era which means you’re in the danger zone for instant gratification spending, i.e. ordering too much takeout. Don’t sleep on tracking your budget!


Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)

New Moon in Taurus (5/7): Second interview for a dream job

Full Moon in Sagittarius (5/23): Out until 3 am on a date

Other Key Dates: 5/7, 5/13, 5/18, 5/20, 5/22

Taurus season is always a busy and visible time of year for you. Whether you’re making career moves, taking your relationship to the next level or gaining more family responsibility, you’re stressed out but there’s a real sweetness that comes with the intensity this year. Compliments from your boss, congratulations from friends, and treats on your desk for a job well done are the norm, especially around the 18th and 23rd. Gemini season begins on the 20th and relieves some of the personal pressure but is still a time to socialize and get out there. Rest? Not until July.

Love Horoscope: The full moon in Sagittarius on the 23rd brings real passion and intensity to what you thought was a casual love affair. If you’re partnered, this is a great time to reignite the spark. Get out of the house! Do some role play! Get some new sex toys! A flirtation you began back in December comes full circle now.

Money Horoscope: After several weeks of stressing over money—both what you have and what you owe—your accounts are finally feeling more balanced, especially once Mercury enters stable Taurus on the 15th.

Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

New Moon in Taurus (5/7): Fly away on your next adventure

Full Moon in Sagittarius (5/23): Homecoming party when you land

Other Key Dates: 5/13, 5/15, 5/17, 5/27, 5/31

It’s vision board time! After months of considering every what if and backup plan, you’re ready to dive headfirst into an adventure. But first you need to manifest it! I get it, you’re practical and don’t consider yourself particularly woo, but don’t you think there’s something to naming your intentions for the universe? This month’s whirlwind astrology inspires you to get out of your logical brain and use your imagination instead. By the end of the month—especially once Jupiter moves into Gemini and your public image sector on the 25th for the next year—you’ll be on your journey to success with a magical roadmap in hand.

Love Horoscope: The new moon in Taurus on the 7th brings a subtle and supportive energy to make plans with your partner about the future (or manifest your future partner). Life is about to get very busy and activated (not just next month but for the next year), and you’re going to want your support system in place.

Money Horoscope: You finally hit the money goal you’ve been chasing for what feels like eons now (probably three months in Virgo time) as Venus meets Jupiter on the 23rd. Now that you’ve leveled up your savings, shifted investments and built out your clients, what’s next?

Virgo Compatibility: Your Most Suited Zodiac Signs, Ranked

Libra (September 23 – October 21)

New Moon in Taurus (5/7): Meet with a counselor about consolidating debt

Full Moon in Sagittarius (5/23): Excellent night out at the local bar

Other Key Dates: 5/1, 5/13, 5/18, 5/25

May brings some of the best cosmic weather we’ve had all year but for you, this is less of a blossoming and more of a composting. This month’s transits highlight a part of the chart that deals with debts, loss and power dynamics. If you’re feeling especially sensitive, you’re right on schedule! That being said though, this month also provides opportunities to reconcile your accounts and get hard conversations off your chest, especially on the 18th and 23rd. You could also get an unexpected payout or chance to apply for a grant or loan. After pulling every last skeleton out of your closet, Gemini season begins on the 20th and welcomes you into a more adventurous era.

Love Horoscope: April brought a dynamic shift to your love life and now in May things are getting even spicier. Hotheaded Mars spends the entire month in your relationship sector making lovers’ intentions very clear. Just be sure you’re not stirring up fights for the sake of it, it’s easy to under these skies.

Money Horoscope: April ended with an emotional full moon in Scorpio that put your money and self worth issues into stark relief. Though you might begin May wondering how you’re ever going to get yourself out of this predicament, you can trust that this month will bring solutions. Most likely in places you weren’t even looking.

Libra Compatibility: Your Most Suited Zodiac Signs, Ranked

Scorpio (October 22 – November 21)

New Moon in Taurus (5/7): Extremely cute first date

Full Moon in Sagittarius (5/23): Summer wardrobe shopping spree

Other Key Dates: 5/19

Over the last year you’ve grown so much through your closest relationships. You’ve been falling in love and making commitments, and also reevaluating what you even want in a partnership. May is for celebrating the closest people in your life, whether that’s getting engaged, signing a deal with your business partner or officiating your bestie’s wedding. Pop some champagne! With tons of work events, social obligations and errands to run, you’re also busier than ever, but also deeply satisfied. Just remember to take a break every once in a while, or the end of the month will find you very burned out.

Love Horoscope: May is a big month for your romantic life with both unexpected plot twists and flirtatious culminations coming all at once. By the time sweet Venus meets up with expansive Jupiter on the 23rd, you won’t have any questions about where you stand in a partnership, even if the best thing for both of you is walking away.

Money Horoscope: May is about relationships of all kinds and that includes your relationship to money. This peaks at the full moon in Sagittarius on the 23rd which highlights how you’ve met (or haven’t met) financial goals you set back at December’s new moon. Jupiter moves into Gemini on the 25th ushering in a full year of growth for your shared resources.

Full Moon in Sagittarius (5/23): Do not disturb mode

Congratulations! You’re having a baby! OK, maybe not a literal baby, maybe it’s more of a creative baby, but either way, it’s time to set up a registry and get out those announcements. The pileup of planets in Taurus this month highlights the part of your chart that deals with romance, pleasure and artistry. Tap into your inner child! Write some angsty teenage poetry! Spend time with your kids (or your friends’ kids)! Once Gemini season begins on the 20th your focus will shift to daily routines and responsibilities so enjoy this messy romantic time while it lasts. Plant a garden! Read some poetry! (I know it’s hard for you but) Chill out!

Love Horoscope: Romance is your top priority this month, and even if you’re not meeting the love of your life, there’s no time like now to be having great sex. Whether that’s with your long term partner or a hot hookup from the past, why waste time on anyone or anything that doesn’t bring you joy?

Money Horoscope: May is an indulgent—and dare I say, hedonistic—month for you which means you need to be extra careful you’re not splurging beyond your means. If by mid-month you’re feeling anxious about being able to afford a bestie’s bachelorette weekend, shift your focus to having fun for free. There’s so much you can do on a budget.

How Capricorn Are You Really (on a Scale from “Goat” to “Check Your Birth Certificate”)?

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

New Moon in Taurus (5/7): Indulge in tiny delights, fresh flowers in the kitchen

Full Moon in Sagittarius (5/23): Call on your support system for advice

Other Key Dates: 5/7, 5/13, 5/27

Taurus season is always an introspective time of year for you, a chance to focus on home and family, and dive into your inner world. You don’t often give yourself this space. You might give acquaintances the impression that you’re less of a human and more of a cyborg who could subsist on five hours of sleep and Soylent alone, and sometimes even believe that yourself. But this season is reminding you what a blessing it is to connect with nature, to get your hands dirty and feel the earth beneath your feet. Later in the month, Gemini season kicks off major improvements and expansion in your creative and romantic life. It’s time to harvest the fruits of your labor and keep the bounty for yourself.

Love Horoscope: Your love life has had many ups and downs over the last year, but once Jupiter enters Gemini on the 25th, you’re entering a new era for dating and romance. Gemini season is always a time for you to flirt and experiment, and this year brings an exciting adventure of getting to know someone new.

Money Horoscope: May is another month of living frugally to save for a big dream. You’ve been hitting all of your financial goals this year, but it gets challenging to stay the course once Gemini season begins on the 20th and you want to prioritize having fun and treating yourself. This summer will be all about temperance. Start practicing now.

So This Is Why the Aquarius Personality Is So Rare

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

New Moon in Taurus (5/7): Natural wine and snacks at the local bar

Full Moon in Sagittarius (5/23): Last minute presentation for the whole office

Other Key Dates: 5/18, 5/23

Lucky you, Pisces! All of the blessings that come with May’s astro weather are happening at your front door. You’ve grown so much through writing, communication and cultivating close friendships over the past year and this month is the perfect time to celebrate all those wins at the local bar. Your ruling planet Jupiter moves into Gemini and your home sector on the 25th bringing short term relief and long term expansion to any ongoing problems with your living space or struggles with your family. Over the next year, you’re going to plant exciting new roots and redefine what you call home.

Love Horoscope: Much of the early spring was spent considering what relationships were worth it to you. Communication issues with a partner or bestie had you feeling hotheaded and overwhelmed, but May brings a return to the steady and reliable presence that you’re used to. If you’re single, you might meet a new special someone through a friend or in your neighborhood.

Money Horoscope: Action planet Mars spends the entire month in your money sector which brings you the energy to hustle, but also means you might be spending money as fast as you’re earning it. This desire to splurge peaks around the 19th as Mars meets the ravenous North Node and eases off from there. Stick to window shopping until this phase passes.
